In this thesis I intend to make some intelligent remarks concerning the intelligibility of the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, with particular reference to Sein und Zeit (Being and Time), his major work. Many people have doubts about the gentleman's intelligibility. He has been accused, among other things, of inventing persuasive definitions, making concealed value-judgements and being unnecessarily obscure. I have even had such suspicions myself. I think, therefore, considering that Heidegger is beginning to have some influence in New Zealand universities, that it is worthwhile to seek some perspective in this matter.
