How antisemitic was Heidegger?
With regard to Heidegger and anti-Semitism: Here is the issue with Heidegger that no one gets:
His interest is not in understanding being, but in experiencing being. In other words, how we BE.
Then he says that different races do this differently. Pre-Socratic Greeks and Germans do it the best, others do it badly, and some do it very badly.
With this established, a meaningful discussion could ensue. But today’s philosophers cannot accept this — in part because they have lost all means of insight into how they BE.
