Heidegger’s Recovery of “the Being-Question” in Light of His Interpretation and Evaluation of Husserl’s Transcendental Reduction.
NUI Maynooth Postgraduate Research Record: Proceedings of the Colloquium.
Husserl characterized his famous reduction of the natural standpoint to the transcendentalphenomenological
standpoint in Part Two: ‘The Phenomenological Fundamental Consideration of
Idea’ (1913) as a genuine return to ‘talk of Being’ (Seinsrede).1 Heidegger certainly did not disagree
with this claim, or with this understanding of phenomenology.2 What, then, does Husserl say about
Being in the Fundamental Consideration that has a bearing on Heidegger’s philosophical position in
phenomenology? This is the issue that I propose to address in this paper. This particular issue is
connected to the wider and deeply contentious matter of Heidegger’s philosophical relation to
Husserl’s thought and to the development of that thought, and hence some reference to this matter will
be necessary. For the purposes of this paper, however, I will focus on Heidegger’s controversial
recovery of the ‘Being-question’ (die Seinsfrage) in light of his interpretation and evaluation of
Husserl’s transcendental reduction.
