The paper describes the main topics of Heidegger’s interpretation of Aristotelian selected practical writings. It is focused on Rhetoric and Nikomachean Ethics. The aim of the article is to show how the practical ideas of Aristotle were theoretically introduced into the basic terms of Being and Time through an analysis of early Heidegger’s lectures. Within the Heidegger’s interpretation, Aristotelian practical concepts indicate the consistency of classical rules and principles of the communication and persuasion. Finally, Heidegger’s ontohermeneutics schould be viewed as practical philosophy based on ethics and rhetoric.
