Riveting

It's like watching video of the Borg vs McEnroe Wimbledon Final of 1980. I saw the match live but then watching it on video was somehow even more amazing, because you knew what happened, yet you let yourself enjoy the ride.

This is so true of my mate Graham's book Heidegger Explained, which I'm teaching today. The sentences jump right off the page. Philosophers are living breathing humanoid beings who perform and play and compete and admire and form bonds and so forth. Marburg is a place with houses and streets.

Oh and you understand Heidegger by PAGE 2...then the fun begins...
