In Christian Today, fake nous.
Colbert asked Gervias one of the most fundamental questions that we all have to confront at one time or another. "Why is there something instead of nothing?" Gervais seems temporarily floored by it. "That makes no sense at all. That's not the choice at all," he says, dismissing out of hand a question which Heidegger described as "The fundamental question of metaphysics."
The fundamental question for MH was: how does the open open up? Metaphysics, the why, was a cul-de-sac that thinking went down after Plato took a wrong turn. Oh Alethea, stuck in Piraeus again.
Actually Heidegger does call that the "Grundfrage" in Introduction to Metaphysics.
