FIGUEROA, Gustavo. Martin Heidegger's emotional disturbances: existence and philosophy. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2019, vol.57, n.3, pp.272-282. ISSN 0717-9227.

Martin Heidegger is one of the most outstanding philosophers of the XX century. He suffered from various emotional disturbances through his exceedingly productive life, and it is postulated that his creativeness perhaps was enhaced or at the very least facilitated in connection to his disorders. The public man, the private figure, his circle generated controversies and rejection that are now more comprehensible thanks to hitherto unpublished material. His asthenics and esthenics traits were probably decisive to trigger off his bouts linked to stressful and hostile environments.

Keywords : Heidegger; creativity; emotional disturbance; philosophy; personality.
