JOHNSON, Edmundo Felipe. Philosophy and science in the early thought of Heidegger. Trans/Form/Ação [online]. 2012, vol.35, n.2, pp.121-141. ISSN 0101-3173. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-31732012000200007.
The aim of this paper is to reflect on the relationship between philosophy and science based on the approach of Martin Heidegger in the 1920s. Examining the Frühe(n) Freiburger Vorlesungen, this article will show how it is possible to understand philosophy and science as specific possibilities of factual life, which ultimately refer to two fundamental existential tendencies: the de-vivification of the theoretical attitude (belonging to scientific practice) and the grasp of the vitality of life by philosophical investigation. By clarifying these tendencies, this paper attempts to discuss the relationship between philosophy and science from an existential perspective.
