In Medium, The Dangerous Maybe wrote a detailed Heideggerian critique of Ben Shapiro.
For scientists, philosophers or [Ben Shapiro] to assume that they can completely bracket out all emotionality is for them to be inauthentic or, to put it in Sartrean terms, they’re in bad faith with this assumption. To argue that facts are what they are without any relation to feelings is to ignore the fact that Dasein is always already attuned and that this attunement is a condition of the establishment of facts. Sorry, Ben, but your fundamental presupposition is bucko bullshit. There is an intrinsic connection between facts and feelings. Facts (knowledge) depend of feelings. Facts do care about your feelings.
