On reading Chapter 3 of ‘Transcendental Heiddegger’

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.

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
