Slate puts Heidegger in perspective.
I took a seminar on the German Novelle and the Heideggerian notion of Ereignis, or “event,” an apt pairing because the patron saint of German letters, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, characterized a Novelle as narrating a “an unprecedented event that has occurred.” Amid discussions of affectedly hyphenated Be-ing and the substantive Nothing, our professor brought up, briefly, Heidegger’s association with the Nazis, characterizing it as a brief dabbling. (I mean, come on, the man schtupped Hannah Arendt—what more do you want?)
and now the Guardian throws their hat in the ring. though all these articles seem rather fatuous to me.
