Martin Heidegger (1889 – 1976)

German Philosopher – Generally thought of as one of the most influential of existential thinkers. Most well known for his phenomenological investigation of being and for his concept of Dasein – the Being for whom being is a concern. Heidegger’s early works focused on the ability to face existential anxiety, guilt and death. His later works focus more on human ‘dwelling’ – on our embodiment in language and in our maintaining openness towards being.
