I Like __ A Lot
i really super-like MARTIN HEIDEGGER a lot
the book BEING AND TIME (SEIN UND ZEIT) is the most important book i have read. i feel confident saying that because i have thought “this is the most important book i have read” numerous times in the past and it keeps happening. i am pleased even when i just pass by the book in my room, and look at it. it is the only book of philosophy, along with the TRACTATUS, that i felt an immediate change in my life, not just like, “i am somewhat impressed by this” but a condition in which i keep thinking about the application of the book to basically everything that happens to me. when i think about the chapter that discusses something called the THEY-SELF, i feel terrified. sometimes i just look at the name MARTIN HEIDEGGER and start singing the theme song from MARTIN (the television show with MARTIN LAWRENCE), but i picture MARTIN HEIDEGGER walking into a room with a laughing audience.
MARTIN HEIDEGGER was a nazi. i am pretty sure you can find pictures of him sitting next to ADOLF HITLER and other bad nazi guys. i have read some discussion of how the philosophy of SEIN UND ZEIT prefigures the nazi party or being a bad nazi guy, or a bad nazi guy’s friend. i am confused about what similarity exists between SEIN UND ZEIT and the nazi party, and when i read things that suggest a connection, i often think “it seems like no one read the book.” then i feel bad because i don’t want to be mean. i think SEIN UND ZEIT is important to me because it involves everything in its explanation. it applies to reading but even like if i am eating a bagel while waiting for the bus, that could be explained by SEIN UND ZEIT. in closing, i am not a nazi but SEIN UND ZEIT is currently the most important book i have read.
