Franco Volpi - Heidegger and Aristotle

Translated by Pete Ferreira


Therefore, if we integrate the repertory of themes and issues that Braig's treatise poses in the eyes of the young Heidegger regarding the unified sense of being, which he got from his reading of Brentano, we then have the extremes and the essential coordinates to read the youthful writings from this perspective and in this light, that is, to capture in the presence of Aristotle the criterion that sorts the elements contained in these texts, and find the common thread to orient us in the decade of silence that precedes the publication of Being and Time.
