1. heidgger was a nazi, what are we to make up this fact?

A=/ Heidegger joined the nazi party (NSDAP) on May 1, 1933, ten days after being elected Rector of the university of freiburg. A year later, in April 1934, he resigned the Rectorship and stopped taking part in Nazi Party meetings, but remained a member of the Party until its dismantling at the end world war 2 Heidegger had held high hopes of reforming the university system with the help of Nazism as a conservatice revolution but, by the end of the War, had become expendable and was even prevented from teaching.

The possibility of a Heideggerian political philosophy was not born as a result of a regrettable "miscue," but from the very conception of existence that simultaneously combats and absorbs the Zeitgeist.

3. Do we ignore heideggers actions as a German citizen an denie any
