Thought 318: Arendt and Heidegger Controversies


I have made the mistake in the past of reading up on French controversies surrounding both Hannah Arendt and Martin Heidegger and all it did was make me angry at the world for dismissing and overlooking the great amount of invaluable insight contained in both these thinkers' works, despite their inevitable flaws as imperfect human beings, no human ever being perfect in the sense of flaw-less. 

This is one area where I will gladly turn a blind eye and a deaf ear for sanity's sake. Instead, I will follow Nietzsche's example when he said
"Let looking away be my only form of denial."
