Logische Untersuchungen (1900–01), Scheler's Der Formalismus in der Ethik und die materiale Wertethik (1913), and Heidegger's Sein und Zeit (1927) are cornerstones in the development of contemporary German philosophy which have substantially influenced such thinkers as Ortega y Gasset, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, and N. Hartmann, to mention but a few. Ortega's great admiration for Scheler is well known. N. Hartmann's Ethik is incomprehensible without Scheler's ethics of values. Even Heidegger, who only recently spoke of Scheler's sudden death as an "irreplaceable loss," gives evidence of significant traces of Schelerian thinking in his Sein und Zeit. Yet, Scheler's distinguished place in contemporary thought remains somewhat obscure and unacknowledged. Paradoxically, this obscurity is due both to his versatility and his unpolished style, as well as to his almost volcanic temperament, and the multitude of themes with which he deals." />
