The "Essential Thought" of Martin Heidegger as a Continuation of Nietzsche's Philosophy of Time

Studia Filozoficzne 218 (1):69-84 (1984)

This article is a summation of work devoted to the main themes of Heidegger's and Nietzsche's philosophies. Heidegger's interpretation of Nietzscheanism and his evaluation of it prompt one make a more precise analysis of the relationship which hypothetically should exist between the "essential thought" of the two philosophers. A comparative analysis of the "essential" themes of the two philosophers shows, however, that questions which were undoubtedly most essential for Nietzsche are compeltely outside the area definied in Heidegger's philosophy as "essential thought", while very many elements of Nietzsche's thought indicate that it is not "essential" philosophy in Heidegger's understanding
