I’ve gotten closure on so much, the past few weeks of processing notes. I’m ready to begin a new era of writing life.
Meanwhile, I’ve closed out summer commenting on current events, via NYTimes especially.
And today, I posted a major statement on why Heidegger is not “antijudaic” (link below). It’s prefaced on my gedavis.com home page with an assertion of jadedness:
I’m sick of young scholars who do bad faith readings of snippets of Heidegger notes, thus creating “Heidegger” fictions that, I guess, serve their careers. I don’t want to give attention to that.So, there.
The aura of scandal is more appealing to the general public (and academic public) than the tedium of careful reading.
