Heidegger on Aristotle’s and Kant’s Ethics

The present chapter attempts to detect within Heidegger’s interpretations of Aristotelian and Kantian ethics clear signs pointing to a phenomenological analysis of how we experience the moral world in its peculiar togetherness. But in both cases, or so I will argue, Heidegger will fi nally withdraw from this project by undermining the perceptual character of moral experience. This withdrawal will bring with it not only strong anti-Aristotelian and anti-Kantian theses but, more importantly, endemic phenomenological perplexities.
