Heraclitus is the English translation of Volume 55 of the Martin Heidegger Gesamtausgabe, comprising two lecture courses delivered by Heidegger at the University of Freiburg during the summers of 1943 and 1944 but first published posthumously in German in 1979. Through his truly 'idiosyncratic' way of translating and interpreting the fragments of Heraclitus, Heidegger obliges us with an essential rethink of their questionable yet authoritative translation and interpretation hitherto. Moreover, his unique elucidation of the fragments sheds light not only on the enigmatic inceptual thinking and logos of the thinker renowned from ancient Greek times as "the obscure one", but also on the enigma of Occidental thinking and its logic per se, including discussion of many more significant thinkers and poets along the way (e.g. Parmenides, Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Hölderlin, and Rilke).
