Heidegger vs. The Chronicle of Higher Ed

Dear Folks in charge of the Chronicle,

When you read a translation, do please check it against your concept of the English word.

When Heidegger talks about “the fabrication of corpses in gas chambers” he doesn't mean that the Holocaust was made up, you silly billies.

Fabrik means factory. Works. Mill. Plant.

He is talking about industrialized death.

And he is one of the very first to link this industrialized death (and the industrial as death) to the mass slaughter of nonhumans.

As Derrida argues forcefully.

Actually, it's much worse than that. The author, Paul Hockenos, in Berlin, knows exactly what he is doing. To the poor old silly billies.

Do some homework Chronicle. You have just been manipulated.
