Martin Heidegger quotes (30)

Agriculture is now a motorized food industry, the same thing in its essence as the production of corpses in the gas chambers and the extermination camps, the same thing as blockades and the reduction of countries to famine, the same thing as the manufacture of hydrogen bombs.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

As the ego cogito, subjectivity is the consciousness that represents something, relates this representation back to itself, and so gathers with itself.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Being and time determine each other reciprocally, but in such a manner that neither can the former - Being - be addressed as something temporal nor can the latter - time - be addressed as a being.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

But every historical statement and legitimization itself moves within a certain relation to history.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Language is the house of the truth of Being.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Making itself intelligible is suicide for philosophy.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Man acts as though he were the shaper and master of language, while in fact language remains the master of man.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Man is not the lord of beings. Man is the shepherd of Being.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Only a god can save us.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

The Fuhrer alone is the present and future German reality and its law. Learn to know ever more deeply: from now on every single thing demands decision, and every action responsibility.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

The German language speaks Being, while all the others merely speak of Being.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

The human being is not the lord of beings, but the shepherd of Being.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

The human body is essentially something other than an animal organism.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

The most thought-provoking thing in our thought-provoking time is that we are still not thinking.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

The possible ranks higher than the actual.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Thinking begins only when we have come to know that reason, glorified for centuries, is the stiff-necked adversary of thought.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Time is not a thing, thus nothing which is, and yet it remains constant in its passing away without being something temporal like the beings in time.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Time-space as commonly understood, in the sense of the distance measured between two time-points, is the result of time calculation.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

To dwell is to garden.
Martin Heidegger   Category: Gardening

To think Being itself explicitly requires disregarding Being to the extent that it is only grounded and interpreted in terms of beings and for beings as their ground, as in all metaphysics.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Transcendence constitutes selfhood.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

True time is four-dimensional.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

We do not say: Being is, time is, but rather: there is Being and there is time.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

We name time when we say: every thing has its time. This means: everything which actually is, every being comes and goes at the right time and remains for a time during the time allotted to it. Every thing has its time.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

We still by no means think decisively enough about the essence of action.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Whatever can be noted historically can be found within history.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

When modern physics exerts itself to establish the world's formula, what occurs thereby is this: the being of entities has resolved itself into the method of the totally calculable.
Martin Heidegger   Category:

Why are there beings at all, instead of Nothing?
Martin Heidegger   Category:
