Martin Heidegger's Teaching Activities

This work originally grew from my dissertation research. I am happy to share with other scholars and researchers and welcome any and all feedback or revisions. Thanks to Prof. Richard Polt and Prof. Ted Kisiel for your revisions and corrections.

Developing an accurate timeline of Heidegger’s teaching is challenging for at least two reasons. First, records of announced courses and seminars are spotty at best and, second, regularly the course that Heidegger announced at the beginning of term to the administration ended up not being the course he taught at all. The most up-to-date listing of Heidegger’s teaching activity from 1915 to 1930 is chronicled in English and German by Theodore Kisiel and Thomas Sheehan in Becoming Heidegger: On the trail of his early occasional writings, 1910-1927 (pp. xl to lvii). A truncated listing of this period is listed below on the basis of this work. The most complete list of Heidegger’s teaching activity in German is included in William Richardson’s Heidegger: Through Phenomenology to Thought (pp. 663-671). Building primarily from the Gesamtausgabe and Richardson’s text, I have provided a draft of Heidegger’s teaching from 1930 to 1973. As one trajectory of my future scholarship will include exploring Heidegger as a teacher, this list will continually be updated and revised.
