The Jerusalem Post reviews the Faye book.
By ignoring exactly how and why Heidegger came to inspire a non-Nazi following, Faye misreads Heidegger’s success. And so rather than examining the neglected and highly disturbing connection between the Nazi and post-modern critiques of Western philosophy, he frets over an unlikely Heidegger-inspired resurgence of Nazism.
I couldn't find any trace of the review's statement about "claptrap" for which "it was already known that even the Munich faculty of philosophy rejected Heidegger", except in this news story. Of course, journalism is all about the "they say", and not about revealing truth; explaining why the only praise this book gets is from journalists. I'll have to pick up a copy of the book, once it's remaindered, and look up that passage and its sources.
