Thinking the Impossible

This chapter discusses two other significant figures that made an impact on French philosophy, although it dismisses the idea that Heidegger made the biggest influence at the time. The first part of the chapter explores Heidegger's contributions, with Tom Rockmore stating that he is ‘the master thinker of French philosophy’. It then explains the Heidegger-Sartre relationship since both can be described as proponents of aesthetic existentialism and Sartre recognized that he derived some of his ideas from Heidegger; the following sections illustrate Heidegger's impact on the three focal philosophers.

Keywords:   Martin Heidegger, Heideggerian philosophy, Jean-Paul Sartre, aesthetic existentialism, Tom Rockmore, French philosophy
