Among Thai readers, the name of Martin Heidegger may not be familiar, but for those who are impressed by continental philosophy especially on the field of phenomenology and existentialism, his name is well recognized. At the first time I read his prominent book, Being and Time, many of his arguments, though difficult and preliminary as he claimed, seemed compatible with some philosophical insights postulated in Buddhism. Most similarities may occur by coincidence, but even so, it is not strange why his fundamental ontology has been usually taken into comparison with some great Asian lines of thought such as Hinduism, Taoism and Zen Buddhism.
