Martin Heidegger was born in 1889 in Messkirch, a village in Baden, south Germany. He studied theology and philosophy at the university of Freiburg from 1909 to 1914, reading a wide variety of both philosophical and non-philosophical texts — Brentano, Husserl, Rickert, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Dostoevesky, Rilke, and Trakl. At the time, the three dominant philosophical schools were phenomenology, neo-Kantianism, and neo-Thomism, and Heidegger was, in one way or another, influenced by all of them.
