Transcendence and the Concrete

First published in 1932/1933, Wahl’s article laid the groundwork for the anthropological, humanist reading of Heidegger by showing how Heidegger’s philosophy must be seen as an attempt to ontologize and secularize Kierkegaard’s more religiously-tinged thought. At the same time, and thanks precisely to Heidegger’s philosophy, it revealed that Kierkegaard was a serious philosophical thinker in his own right. Wahl’s essay also stands out for being at once a succinct, admirable overview of Heidegger’s early philosophy and a penetrating critique of issues still debated by Heidegger scholars today. Finally, in characteristic style, we see Wahl bringing thinkers into dialogue over the most fundamental issues. In this essay alone, there are more than just passing remarks on Nietzsche, Jaspers, Bergson, and Hegel.
