Martin Heidegger

Did Martin Heidegger was a philosophical debt to Immanuel Kant?

Very much so, particularly in his phenomenological analysis of space and time. Like Immanuel Kant (1724–1804), Heidegger thought that both space and time were “in” the subjects as necessary pre-conditions for experience. But unlike Kant, Heidegger did not believe that space and time were necessary categories in the mind; rather, they were ontological structures of human existence that became evident in the way Dasein concretely existed.
