Martin Heidegger (1889–1976), philosopher. Autogr. ms. (fragment). No place, [probably 1954]. 34 pp. on 48 ff. (Large) 8vo. Addenda (see below). - Notes and excerpts regarding an article which Walter Schulz had published as "Über den philosophiegeschichtlichen Ort Martin Heideggers" in the "Philosophische Rundschau", a journal just founded by Hans-Georg Gadamer and Helmut Kuhn: "The author misses the point: by inquiring into the meaning of existence, all metaphysical imagination is already transcended. I always was clear about this, and yet I long remained unable to properly mark this distance from metaphysics [...]“. Also about Hegel and Nietzsche and the "assertion, now common, that Hegel & Nietzsche had supposedly already transcended metaphysics [...]“. The form in which these notes have survived permits a few conclusions about their origins: several of these loose pages, which are only occasionally numbered, bear the note "W. Schulz", "For Walter Schulz", etc.; several pages are written on the blank reverse of cut-up sheets of Heidegger's hand-corrected typescript of "Was heißt Denken?“, planned for publication by Niemeyer in Tuebingen in 1954. Thus, Heidegger penned occasional unconnected reflections on Schulz's article, from which he repeatedly quotes (citing page numbers), as he does from the fifth edition (1949) of his book "Was ist Metaphysik?". As evidenced by two letters by Schulz to Heidegger, which accompany the collection, Schulz had approached the philosopher with the request for a review. I: ALS. Tuebingen, 23 July 1954.
