Earth humor, ar! ar!
How many Heideggerians does it take to change a lightbulb?
Three. One to criticize all previous philosophers for their overly theoretical attitude and to just screw the damn ready-to-hand thing in. After the screwing—also known as the turning—a second Heideggerian would repeatedly flip the switch on and off in a lame attempt to explain that the Lichtung always entails concealing as well as revealing. Finally, an elderly Heideggerian would clarify that, etymologically as well as inceptually, the Lichtung is not after all bound to the Platonic metaphysics of light(bulbs).
