Heidegger’s Allegory of Reading: On Nietzsche and the Tradition
English & Comparative Literature Department
Hiedegger und Nietzsche
Heidegger's interpretation of Nietzsche has been canonized in the philosophical tradition as an almost perfect demonstration of how the forgetfulness of Being continues the dominant positions of modern metaphysics. However, the role of reading in the interpretative process casts a different light on Heidegger's approach to Nietzsche and his relationship to the philosophical tradition. This paper is concerned with three aspects of Heidegger's work, namely, (i) the role of Kant and Schopenhauer in Nietzsche's critique of metaphysics; (ii) Nietzsche's 'inversion' of Platonism; and (iii) Heidegger's contribution to a hermeneutical reappraisal of Nietzsche's thought.
