Schopenhauer & Heidegger

July 28, 2014

Ever since encountering the work of Arthur Schopenhauer I’ve become one of his most devoted fans (which makes him sound like a pop star, which he sort of is) and have adopted the Tragic view of the biological world. But since I started reading the work of controversial jazz musician Gilad Atzmon I have developed an interest in the philosophy of another (also controversial) German intellectual giant – Martin Heidegger.

Those who are familiar with Heidegger would know why he is controversial, and I am going to leave that alone for now. But I am coming round to the idea that some sort of fusion of the ideas of Schopenhauer and Heidegger may be the best way to navigate the tumult and confusion of twenty-first century living.
