This paper attempts to shed some light on Heidegger’s early conception of phenomenology in light of its conscious departure from Husserl’s conception of phenomenology. The period in question extends from Heidegger’s first Freiburg lectures in 1919 to his return to Freiburg from Marburg in the fall of 1928. After flagging some prima facie differences between their phenomenological projects during these years, I suggest how Heidegger adapts into his phenomenology four basic aspects of Husserl’s phenomenology (the phenomenological reduction, formalization, and the performative and constitutive aspects of the analysis). In conclusion I call attention to a fundamental, arguably irreconcilable difference between their phenomenologies.
