In the succession to Kant, Heidegger is a mystery, and a rare creative successor to German classical philosophy, but his confusions over Nazism shows him sliding out of the mainline into a major mistake…Whatever Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer did, they remained ‘classic’ straights, exemplars for an age it seems, from kindergarten onward. Heidegger is subject to the vagaries of post-transitional chaotication as ‘system macro stuff’ yields to ‘free agent stuff open to improvisation. How unlucky this fellow, with Jaspers there to try and pull him out of fascist firestorm brewing. Maybe something can be rescued from it, on the left…Nietszche of course was the entry point for some demon into German Classical philosophy. We still don’t know what hit us here.

One way to study modern philosophy is via the ‘macro effect’ where we see that Kant and his companions appear dead center on the divide, a spectacular effect. meaning?
