Presented by the late Professor Robert C. Solomon:

Edmund Husserl was the founder of phenomenology, a philosophical method seeking certainty. His most illustrious student was Martin Heidegger, who took Husserls method into the realm of existentialism. Heidegger called his philosophy a fundamental ontology and began with an examination of Dasein--our Being-in-the-World. Unlike Husserl, however, he rejects mind and consciousness. But Dasein has an identity crisis. It wants to know who it is. So, too, Heideggers own identity has proved to be very controversial.
