Sample text

Nietzsche was greatly influenced by it, and even though his philosophy later detonated as a "life philosophy;' blowing apart many particularly massive chunks of materialism, it was Lange who had lit the fuse. Neo-Kantianism, which will be discussed later because young Heidegger moved in its circles, was likewise set in motion by Lange. Lange's fundamental idea is the restoration of that neat Kantian differentiation between a world of phenomena that we can analyze by laws, a world to which, as objects among objects, we ourselves belong with part of our being, and a world that reaches into us, which used to be called "spirit" and by Kant was called "freedom" with reference to the internal man, and the "thing in itself" with reference to the external world.

Heidegger embarked on his new course of study in the winter semester of 1909. In his Lebenslauf of 1915 he wrote: "The lectures in philosophy prescribed at the time failed to satisfy my needs, so I set out to study the scholastic textbooks on my own account. " 1 Only one Freiburg theologian received special mention from him, and in later years, too, Heidegger would always refer to him as his teacher-Carl Braig. As a final-year high school student he had already studied BTaig'S compendium, On Being: Outline of Ontology (1896), and through it familiarized himself with some basic concepts of ontological tradition.

In the autumn of 1906 Martin Heidegger switched from the Konradihaus in Constance to the archiepiscopal seminary of St. George in Freiburg, where he attended the renowned Bertold gymnasium. The grant from the Messkirch local foundation no longer covered the cost of the Constance institution. But Conrad Grober and Camillo Brandhuber, those enterprising mentors of the sexton's son, had opened up another source of funds-the Eliner studentship. This grant had been established in the sixteenth century by Christoph Eliner, a theologian from Messkirch.
