The paper deals with the philosophical development of Martin Heidegger, whose creation has been divided into two stages by the author. In the first — in the period “being and time“ the centre-of-gravity of Heidegger’s creation is the existentialist analysis of human being. Later, he left the analysis of human being and turned toward a new dimension, to being. He realizes the so called ontological differentiation between being and existence, he deals with the criticism of science and the whole „west-European metaphysics”. He writes hermeneutic studies to the works of not only pre-Socratists and inclines consciously to mythology. The author points out at nihilism and the religious-mystical objective idealism of Heidegger’s conception, which in its final consequence is a reflection of the crisis of bourgeois society and bourgeois man of the 20th century.
