I especially enjoyed the chapter on Martin Heidegger, which gives a devastatingly simple yet undeniable critique of Heidegger's entire philosophical project. I had been previously reading Heidegger sympathetically, but this chapter brought the dishonesty of Heidegger's main ideas to my attention. Kaufmann is emphatic that we not therefore disregard Heidegger as unimportant nor is he suggesting that we ignore Heidegger. He is only suggesting that Heidegger was guilty of covering up the problems he set himself to dissolving by needlessly impeding his readers with inconsistent language, failing to honestly identify the intellectual lineage of his contentions, employing a language of "ontology" to disguise his fundamentally anthropological enterprise, and subscribing to a Manichæan opposition of inauthenticity/authenticity. There is more to the critique than just this, but these were the points that most pressingly stood out to me. ( )
