Heidegger vs. Donna Summer

My friend the poet Joe Wenderoth suggested I listen to Louis Armstrong while reading Heidegger to keep Heidegger “honest.” Since I have only one tape of Armstrong, I'm trying Donna Summer, “Aint Nobody” juxtaposed with Being and Time. Actually it seems to work amazingly well. Anything to subtract the onto-theology.

And while we're on the subject, I ordered Lingis's new book a couple of days ago. Can't wait to read it. And some Michel Henry.

I don't want to spoil the party but don't you mean Rufus & Chaka Khan's "Ain't Nobody"? Either way, it's a great song!

Sorry Marc--my bad, the version is indeed Chaka Khan...I shall emend this.
