Richardson in the early Sixties: What I was trying to demonstrate, however — and nothing that Professor Stern has said has changed my mind on this point — was that Heidegger could only write of the event of Sein as he himself encountered it.

However, Mr Jones may console himself: It is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a form of Californian laissez faire. The full text of this book review is only available to subscribers of the London Review of Books.

It is this Gelassenheit which Heidegger huugo to practise in his interpretations of such writers as Trakl, Rilke and Holderlin. He saw himself as a contributor to this tribal lineage, and associated his writings with it; his biographer reports on this powerful rural mystique, and is as far as I know the first author to do so fairly and soberly.

But it seems to be true that later in his life he became more and more dictatorial, uugo precisely the time when he should have heixegger more open. We bow before his fate.
