Life, factical life, historical life, absolute life, life in and of itself, life-world,lived through and pre-theoretical life experiences, vitality of life or liveliness(Lebendigkeit), the primacy, and the origin of life - these are all centralthemes in early Heidegger's lecture courses from 1919 co 1924. The transcriptsof these courses also record Heidegger's several, albeit brief, referencesto the most prominent philosophers of what then was called life-philosophyor Lebensphilosophie: Bergson, Simmel, Nietzsche, and of course,Dilthey, as well as Heidegger's polemical rebuttals of the detractors of life-philosophyand defenders of academic philosophy, notably Windelband andRickert. Prima facie, this supports the thesis that early Heidegger is on hisway to his own version of life-philosophy, more specifically, a life-philosophyalong phenomenological lines.
