The main purpose of this article (which is the first one from two publications, devoted to the 97 volume of Heidegger’s Complete Works) is the demonstration of the duality of Heideggerian philosophy of this contradictory historical period (1942–1948). It means the demonstration of the fact that Heidegger is the «double-faced Janus of philosophy». The first face, the uncovering of which is the subject of this article, is his anger, the hateful attitude towards the «Publicity» («Öffentlichkeit»), to the scientific and philosophical community – including the previous friends (Karl Jaspers) and the new allies (J.-P. Sartre). However, Heidegger's main guilt was his vehemence to consider the bloody crimes of the Nazi regime (including the KZ and the millions of war sacrifices) as pardonable. But to take into account only this line of the text of the 97 volume means not to understand, how and why M. Heidegger after the war became one of the most important philosophers of the XX century. The philosophical face Heidegger's – the subject of the second author's article about the 97 volume of Heidegger’s Works.
