Heidegger’s Autograph Notes and Comments on the Transcript of Gadamer’s Lecture “Von Hegel bis Heidegger”



17 pages with Heidegger’s autograph notes in black, red, and yellow ink; 7 larger pages with Gadamer’s typed text, with Heidegger’s notes in black, red, and yellow ink.

In a folder titled also in Heidegger’s hand. Dated: July 1965. In fine condition.

An extensive file of Heidegger’s notes on Gadamer’s 1965 lecture Von Hegel bis Heidegger. “In the summer semester of 1965 I offered a lecture course titled ‘Von Hegel bis Heidegger’ […]. Heidegger attended its final session and offered some remarks after my lecture. Basically, in those remarks Heidegger continued to emphasize the fact that Hegel’s thought culminates in a form of absolute knowledge.” – remembers Gadamer of his 1965 summer course at the Heidelberg University and Heidegger’s comments on it (Hahn, 1997).

The present papers are evidently related to this memory of Gadamer. They either served as preparatory notes for Heidegger’s above-mentioned remarks, or they are a draft for a more extensive posterior response to the ideas Gadamer’s delivered during his 1965 summer course.

The file consists of two parts. A 7-pages typed transcript of Gadamer’s lecture annotated by Heidegger, dated on July 21, 1965. With a different pen - probably written later - Heidegger also refers to the publication of an extended version of Gadamer’s lectures (Anmerkungen zu dem Thema “Hegel und Heidegger”, in Natur und Geschichte: Karl Löwith zum 70. Geburtstag, ed.: Braun, H.; Riedel, M., Stuttgart: Kohlhammer, 1967). The other part is a gathering of seventeen sheets with Heidegger handwritten notes on Hegel, corresponding with the content of what Gadamer’s recalls about Heidegger’s remarks.

Martin Heidegger (1889–1976) was one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th-century, best known for his works associated with phenomenology, hermeneutics, and existentialism.

Hans-Georg Gadamer (1900–2002) was a German philosopher, trained in neo-Kantian scholarship as well as in classical philology, and profoundly affected by Heidegger’s philosophy. Gadamer was a key figure in Heidegger’s Marburg circle during the 1920s and they maintained a relatively close relationship throughout their respective careers.
