There came a point when we failed to keep up with these Joneses. It cannot have been an easy book to write, and it is not an easy book to read.

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 neidegger it. This may all seem pedantic, but there is an important point lurking here. Log In Register for Online Access. Gareth Jones Keble College, Oxford.
