I am slowly reading this collection of essays titled Transcendental Heidegger edited by Steven Crowell and Jeff Malpas, published by Stanford University Press. I have just finished reading chapter 3 ‘Heidegger on Kant on Transcendence’ by David Carr. I can only call it what it is, without hyperbole, an enlightening and insightful essay that I felt privileged to read and understand!
After reading Heidegger on Being and Acting: From Principles to Anarchy by Reiner Schurmann that took months for me to read, much less to come to terms with its exhaustive scholarship? I thought that I would give myself some time away from this thinker.
But I can’t seem to give up on my more than twenty year interest in this troubling – call him a Monster!- thinker and his development over time. The Black Notebooks only confirm his status as a Nazi.
