"What is to be investigated is being only and—nothing else; being alone and further—nothing; solely being, and beyond being— nothing. What about this Nothing? . . . Does the Nothing exist only because the Not, i.e. the Negation, exists? Or is it the other way around? Does Negation and the Not exist only because the Nothing exists? . . . We assert: the Nothing is prior to the Not and the Negation. . . . Where do we seek the Nothing? How do we find the Nothing. . . . We know the Nothing. . . . Anxiety reveals the Nothing. . . . That for which and because of which we were anxious, was 'really'—nothing. Indeed: the Nothing itself—as such—was present. . . . What about this Nothing?The Nothing itself nothings." --What Is Metaphysics?, 1929, Martin Heidegger

"What Is Metaphysics?" (German: Was ist Metaphysik?) is the inaugural lecture by Martin Heidegger given on July 24, 1929.

German text

Was ist Metaphysik? ist der Titel eines von Martin Heidegger am 24. Juli 1929 gehaltenen Vortrags. Es ist die öffentliche Antrittsvorlesung Heideggers, der zu diesem Zeitpunkt an der Freiburger Universität den Lehrstuhl Husserls übernahm.

Heidegger bestimmt in dem Vortrag den Menschen als das Wesen, welches in der Metaphysik nach dem Ganzen fragt. Er setzt sich mit der Beziehung von Philosophie und Wissenschaft auseinander, indem er deren Verhältnis zum Nichts thematisiert. Dabei zeigt sich, dass erst durch das Nichts die „Grundfrage“ der Philosophie und somit auch der Wissenschaft motiviert wird: „Warum ist überhaupt Seiendes und nicht vielmehr Nichts?“ Da die Logik sich als untauglich erweist, das Nichts zu begreifen, lehnt Heidegger sie als zentrale Methode der Metaphysik ab.

Der Vortrag stellt einen wichtigen Übergang zwischen dem Denken aus Sein und Zeit und Heideggers Spätwerk dar. Seine Bedeutung lässt sich auch daran ermessen, dass Heidegger nachträglich 1943 ein Nachwort und 1949 eine Einleitung verfasst, in denen er sich jeweils selbst interpretiert.
