More people should respond to the Aeolian harp.
It is unclear in all of the approving works on Heidegger that I have read whether Heidegger in point of fact is urging Germans, or all of us, to become carpenters, peasants, and/or poets in our ‘turning away from’ the ‘globalized, technological civilization that Heidegger saw as a threat to the very essence of humanity’. Perhaps the world would become, on balance, a better place with middlingly small but sufficient prosperity via small craftwork, with generalized appreciation of art and poetry – the master carpenter (or master plumber or worker in a nuclear power plant??) a fine sensibility responding to the Aeolian harp.
