Nietzsche: Volumes Three and Four

by Heidegger, Martin (1991)


A landmark discussion between two great thinkers--the second (combining volumes III and IV) of two volumes inquiring into the central issues of Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophy.

Key Passage

The age of the fulfillment of metaphysics-which we descry when we think through the basic features of Nietzsche's metaphysics-prompts us to consider to what extent we first find ourselves in the history of Being. It also prompts us to consider-prior to our finding ourselves-the extent to which we must experience history as the re-lease of Being into machination, a release that Being itself sends, so as to allow its truth to become essential for man out of man's belonging to it.
