SILVA, João Rodrigo Oliveira e. Considerations on Vladimir Nabokovs short story Terror through Martin Heideggers philosophy. Psicol. USP [online]. 2001, vol.12, n.1, pp.33-47. ISSN 0103-6564. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-65642001000100003.
This essay is intended as an exercise in the understanding of some of Martin Heideggers important ideas, especially in the notion of dread by the philosopher. In order to elucidate these ideas, a philosophic reading of Vladimir Nabokovs short story Terror is done. The story is presented here together with an approach between the experience of terror, as described in the story, and that of dread, as described by Heidegger. This approach is to be explained throughout the article in which other questions concerning Heideggers thought will appear and be considered.
Keywords : Heidegger, Martin; Anxiety; Existential psychology.
