With the following project we intend to properly state the role played by the question of nothing in Martin Heidegger's Sein und Zeit in accordance BOTH with Heidegger's own notion of phenomenology and with Edmund Husserl's influence on it. Our main purpose is to understand the reason Why Heidegger thematized the question of nothing in the broader project of Sein und Zeit and to correctly comprehend how it is related to Heidegger's phenomenological background and specially to Husserl's work. To achieve our purpose we intend to analyze, as well as the first chapters of Sein und Zeit, Heidegger's early work Die Grund probleme der Phänomenologie (1926), his late comment on phenomenology Mein Weg in die Phänomenologie (1963), Husserl's work Die Idee der Phänomenologie: Fünf Vorlesungen and some of his late manuscripts that address not only his reading of Sein und Zeit, but also his own idea of phenomenology. Furthermore, this proposed investigation will be supported by the reading of commentaries from Hans-Georg Gadamer and Hans-Helmuth Gander. Our aim is to comprehend how Heidegger's notion of phenomenology as a possibility could be developed through a particular interpretation of Aristotle's philosophy and the way in which it differs from Husserl's perspective. The proper understanding of the differences and similarities between both authors is of huge importance for the accurate appreciation of Heidegger's Sein und Zeit and of his pathway through phenomenology. Therefore we expect to analyze all the topics mentioned above in order to undertake a suitable interpretation of the question of nothing as presented in Sein und Zeit. (AU)
