In Martin Heidegger and Eugen Fink conducted an extraordinary seminar on the fragments of Heraclitus. Heraclitus Seminar records those conversations, documenting the imaginative and experimental character of the multiplicity of interpretations offered and providing an invaluable portrait of Heidegger involved in active discussion and explication.
Heidegger’s remarks In Martin Heidegger and Eugen Ehraclitus conducted an extraordinary seminar on the fragments of Heraclitus.
Heidegger’s remarks in this seminar illuminate his interpretations not only of pre-Socratic philosophy, but also of figures such as Hegel and Holderllin. At the same time, Heidegger clarifies many late developments in his own understanding of truth, Being, and understanding. Heidegger and Fink, both deeply rooted in the Freiburg phenomenological tradition, offer two competing approaches to the phenomenological reading of the ancient text-a kind of reading that, as Fink says, is “not so heidwgger concerned with the philological problematic Paperbackpages.

Apr 02, Dimitris Passas rated it it was amazing. Initially, the plan was for the seminar to expand over a jeidegger of semesters but this was never actualized. The reader has the opportunity to witness a live dialogue, conducted mainly by Martin Heidegger and Eugen Fink, one of the most distinguished representatives of Phenomenology, as well as the questions and observations made by the participants of the lectures.
The chapters of the book are categorized under a specific title, e. Thus, the reader is allowed to be more focused on individual themes of the Heraclitean Cosmology and is not confused in any part of the book. I think that this book is mainly addressed to Heraclitus scholars and it is far from being easy, the reader must have an extensive knowledge of the Heraclitean Fragments and their main interpretations as well as heraclitua familiar with the characteristic Heideggerian language.
Nevertheless, it is a vital reading for those who have a special interest in the thought of the Presocratic Philosophers and contemporary speculative philosophy. Mar 02, Ecoute Sauvage rated it it was amazing. I liked the fact that Fink starts with 64 and not with 10, Heidegger gets much too abstract at times.
The translation isn’t the best possible, but originals usually read better, so that’s no criticism of Mr Seibert who did a creditable job.
Heracltus masterpiece, in brief. Aug 19, Shawn rated it it was amazing. Heidwgger book is very difficult, and I wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re familar with Heidegger’s other accounts of the presocratic philosophers and also have a good knowledge of Heraclitus. Without the latter it would probably be tough to follow the twists and turns of Heidegger and Fink’s analysis, since a lot of it uses the Greek.
But Heraclitus Seminar is a really rewarding text if you can make your way through it. I’ve read this book twice and would benefit from going through it again.
I thin This book is very difficult, and I wouldn’t recommend it unless you’re familar with Heidegger’s other accounts of the presocratic philosophers and also have a good knowledge of Heraclitus.
I think Fink’s proposed reading, herwclitus which this book primarily consists, successfully poses a very serious critique of Heidegger’s approach to Heraclitus and the presocratics in general.
A principal difference Fink maintains in his reading is the suggestion that we have no means of understanding Heraclitus with any measure of certainty, not only due to the separation of nearly 3, years but also because we are too far removed from the intellectual framework in which Heraclitus thought.
Charles H. Seibert (ed.), Heraclitus Seminar – PhilPapers
He wonders whether it makes sense to try and determine what ‘the matter of thought’ is in Heraclitus, going against the Heideggerian grain of the notion that the matter of thought is in fact present for us even now, and is to be found in what is ‘unspoken’ by Heraclitus. Fink opts to follow the phenomena named in the extant Heraclitean fragments and see what they yield by virtue of their own content.
This text definitely is Fink much more than Heidegger, although I would say that Heidegger’s compliance with Fink in many places suggests he doesn’t find the majority of Fink’s interpretations to be intrinsically problematic. But as described at the beginning of the book and in places throughout, you are getting Fink’s Heraclitus; his interpretation is driven largely by ‘hen-panta’ idea, with emphasis on the fragments concerned with fire and light – whereas Heidegger openly says he reads Heraclitus via logos and aletheia.
So with these things in mind, this text is quite illuminating if you want an inside look at the nuts and bolts of how Heidegger reads the presocratics – in terms of methodology – but I’m not sure that much of its content is well-representative of Heidegger.
It’s unfortunate that his own Heraclitus text from twenty years earlier is still unavailable in English – but his short essays which contain the highlights from that text can be found in the Early Greek Thinking volume edited by Krell and Capuzzi.
Aug 13, Mike rated it it was ok. Given that Heidegger is often considered to be at his best in the classroom setting not that I ever took a course from him, but this is from other 20th Century philosophers who spoke in awe of him and his unique teaching abilityI had high hopes for this book: Heidegger along with a philologist Eugen Fink leading a group of students in a discussion of Heraclitus.
Alas, it was not to be. Fink holds the floor for much of the discussion, thereby sapping much of my interest – who cares what Fin Given that Heidegger is often considered to be at his best in the classroom setting not that I ever took a course from him, but this is from other 20th Century philosophers who spoke in awe of him and his unique teaching abilityI had high hopes for this book: Fink holds the floor for much of the discussion, thereby sapping much of my interest – who cares what Fink thinks, let’s listen to Heidegger excavate his way through the text.
And much of Fink’s explication seems not to go very far. It starts with an interesting discussion of the idea of “lightning,” but then the bulb seems to peter out after a bit. Not only that, Heidegger seems to have trouble getting going.

If anything, it seems like Heidegger gets in his own way. Case in point, Heidegger’s pomposity “shines” or “comes into the clearing” when he refers to himself in the third person several times on p. Fink, who begins with the lightning, is, as it were, struck by lightning. With what does Heidegger begin?
That the students and Fink cater to Heidegger’s whims and illeism shows his influence and standing, but it’s difficult not to laugh when you read that interaction. And again, the book never shows Heidegger’s hand regarding Heraclitus, at least as far as I’m concerned. Perhaps I’ll need to revisit this book in the future, but here’s hoping Heidegger’s Parmenides book is better than this. This should really be a 1.
