By David Wittenberg

This booklet contends that acts of revision are vital and crucial to the venture of philosophizing and that philosophy can be construed primarily as a tradition of rereading and rewriting. The e-book focuses mainly on Heidegger’s hugely influential interpretation of Nietzsche, performed in lectures through the Thirties and Forties and released in 1961. the writer heavily analyzes the rhetorical skill during which Heidegger repositions Nietzsche’s considering inside of a huge background of metaphysics, whilst Heidegger positions his personal reinterpretation as that history’s extra “proper” reading.

No philosophical reader is just a person or sufferer of revisionist equipment: in rereading philosophical pasts, the reader is the very mechanism in which such interpretive trends are first shaped into difficulties or techniques in the philosophical canon.
