Martin Heidegger has been described as one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. His work is considered difficult even by other philosophers and his magnum opus Being and Time is thought by some to be the most difficult book ever written. Heidegger grew up in a committed Catholic family in Baden, a strongly Catholic part of Southern Germany near the Swiss border.

His father was the Sexton of the Catholic parish of Messkirsch, and young Martin was educated at grammar schools in Constance and Freiburg which, though not strictly Jesuit since the abolition of the Society of Jesus in , were nevertheless strongly influenced by Jesuitism.

In Heidegger applied to join the Jesuit order in Austria but was rejected on health grounds and switched instead to the theological seminary in Freiburg. This trajectory was also ended by health problems and Heidegger changed first to the study of mathematics and logic, and then philosophy. Having married a Lutheran Heidegger distanced himself from Catholicism to the point where he came to be regarded by many as a Protestant thinker, or at least as a link man between philosophy and Protestant theology, though Heidegger himself later claimed to have remained a Catholic all of his life.

At this point Heidegger was clearly committed to the pushing through of a radically authoritarian reformation of German academic policy, and with himself as the leading figure in this process. This, together with the fact that he declared in favour of Hitler in the vote of 12th November would appear to argue against the claim before the denazification committee in that he had realized by the summer of that events were moving in a direction contrary to his own political values.

Nevertheless, Heidegger had powerful enemies within National Socialist institutions, notably Erich Jaensch, who regarded Heidegger as representative of the previous, decadent order. They turned their backs on the interpreter of the event. Later, this issue re-emerged as Heidegger challenged the Party-line interpretation of Nietzsche as promoted by Alfred Baumler.

We shall get back on the right track only if we are able to promote the careers of a new generation of teachers without harassment and unhelpful confrontation. On the other hand his assistant Werner Brock was Jewish, as was a substantial group of his students, including, at different times, Hannah Arendt and Herbert Marcuse.

It seems clear enough that Heidegger hankered after a rebirth of German intellectual life drawing on the pre-Socratics, particularly Parmenides and Heraclitus. However, this is not the same as an outright rejection of Christianity, and indeed Ott describes how Heidegger was buried as a Catholic.

I just happen to have a different understanding of how that event came to take place. A professional historian of institutions, Ott works from an abundant array of sources. Martin Heidegger a Political Life On the contrary, is the interpretative stance necessary to any understanding of an event. What I was trying to demonstrate, however — and nothing that Professor Stern has said has changed hridegger mind on this point — was that Heidegger could only write of the event of Sein as he himself encountered it. Here, therefore, is something which strikes at the very life of his credibility as an interpreter. First, he identified the rise to power of National Socialism as an event: Again, here we simply need to turn to what Heidegger himself actually wrote, on this occasion in a letter to Father W. However, heideggre approach entails a limitation of a different kind.
