    Nietzsche: The Ethics of an Immoralist (review)
    Review of Metaphysics 50 (1): 145-146. 1996.
    In this study Berkowitz challenges interpretations which claim Nietzsche as the "founding father of postmodernism" and its relativism and perspectivism. He argues that Nietzsche's commitment to a search for truth, wisdom, and virtue marks him as an ethicist proper, whose "break from traditional morality is by his own account, and is in fact, grounded in and a partial continuation of traditional morality".

    On Overestimating Philosophy: Lessons from Heidegger’s Black Notebooks
    Journal of Aesthetics and Phenomenology 4 (2): 183-195. 2017.
    In this paper we discuss Heidegger’s conception of philosophy in the Black Notebooks. In particular, we set out a reading of the Notebooks from the 1930s and early 1940s as exhibiting an extremist view of philosophy, and its concern with being, which accords it an absolute and exclusive priority above and beyond everything else. We argue that such overcompensation for philosophy’s declining fortune involves a willful turning away from the realities of human life, and from the multifarious symbol…Read more

    Studies in Early Heidegger
    Dissertation, Indiana University. 2003.
    The dissertation is a historical and systematic study of Heidegger 's philosophizing at Freiburg between 1919 and 1923. It is shown that Heidegger pursues a philosophy of life directed at articulating how human life is lived from within, rather than how it is objectively thought about in the various positive sciences. Heidegger 's basic thesis that life is inextricably tied to the historical world and centered in the personal self leads him to experiment with various forms of relativism or histo…Read more

    In this paper I analyze Hegel’s concept of life in the Phenomenology of Spirit and Heidegger’s critical comments regarding this concept of life in his 1930/31 Lecture Course on Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit. I claim that Heidegger's lecture course shows his continued fascination with life, despite his official distance to Dilthey and the then contemporary life-philosophy. I argue that one of the fundamental tenets of life-philosophy, the opposition of "life" to "reason," still motivates Heideg…Read more

    Heidegger’s Struggle with History
    Investigaciones Fenomenológicas 4 (II): 61-72. 2013.
    : In this paper I analyze early Heidegger’s concept of history. First, I argue that early Heidegger makes use of three distinct concepts or spheres of history, namely (1) history as intergenerational process, (2) history as personal or autobiographical development, and (3) history as the real center and origin of all intentional acts in the intentional self. Second, I argue that an essential motif in Heidegger’s discussion is the re-appropriation of what he considers the externalized and expropr…Read more

    Early Heidegger's Concept of History in Light of the Neo-Kantians
    Journal of the Philosophy of History 3 (4): 355-384. 2009.
    The history of Heidegger's relationship to the neo-Kantians is still largely unwritten, despite the fact that in his formative period Heidegger was very close to the neo-Kantian school, especially Windelband and Rickert, Lask and Natorp. With regard to the concept of history and the importance of historical philosophizing, it is the received view that Dilthey was early Heidegger's main and only source of inspiration. This paper argues against this one-sided view by showing the historical and sys…Read more
