Roger Scruton on Heidegger

Quite mirroring my own sense of Heidegger are the following delectable comments on him:

"It is impossible to summarize Heidegger's work, which no one has claimed to understand completely. In the next chapter I shall give reasons for thinking that it may be unintelligible... Its language... is metaphorical and contorted to the point almost of incomprehensibility; the reader has the impression that never before have so many words been invented and tormented in the attempt to express the inexpressible" (Short History, 256)


Hegel, Heidegger, Derrida... three of a kind
