Thomas Sheehan on being uncivilized.
(Seyn, often translated by the barbaric “beyng”)
From "What, after all, was Heidegger about?"

"Baa, baa, baa."
"Certainly, the Acropolis is an expression of the Greeks, and the Naumburg Cathedral is an expression of the Germans, and the 'baa' is an expression of the sheep. Indeed, the artwork is simply a special expression, i.e., its own 'baa' — probably."

"The Origin of the Work of Art," first version (The Heidegger Reader, p. 145)
