Although he later worked less on Aristotle, Heidegger recommended postponing reading Nietzsche, and to "first study Aristotle for ten to fifteen years". In reading Aristotle, Heidegger increasingly contested the traditional Latin translation and scholastic interpretation of his thought. Heidegger notes that Nietzsche fails to overcome the dualism in his doctrine; thus, he does not also overcome metaphysics (Lozar 123).
