kalountos reviews Thomas Brockelman's Žižek and Heidegger: The Question Concerning Techno-Capitalism.
Brockelman accuses Heidegger (and others) of missing something that Kant saw in Descartes. But Heidegger, in his confrontation with Descartes, specifically calls attention to what Kant noted, that the nature of the ego and the content of the cogito are left unquestioned. Since the content of the cogito in the meditations is for Descartes the ego, Heidegger’s differentiation between them implies a difference between the ego that thinks, the cogito, and the “I” which is the subject of thought, or the content of the cogito in Heidegger’s formulation.
