Re: Welcome to heidegger

Getting started is a problem.

You can probably read some of the later stuff profitably without knowing
Being and Time. Say, "Introduction to Metaphysics"

I would suggest reading at least the first few chapters of Being and Time,
though, to get a taste of the sort of the more or less straitforward
phenomenological inquiry that serves as a launching point for the later
stuff.

Then read some later stuff, maybe something really "relevant" like "The
Question Concerning Technology." Or just pick up Basic Writings and start
reading whatever looks groovy.

The deeper you delve into it all, the more you see how the early and the late
stuff work together as a whole. I'm just starting to get a sense of this
myself.

You know you're really onto something when you can no longer tell whether
he's a monster or a saint.
