Springtime for Heidegger and Philosophy
Winter for Reason and Sense

Across the world, Heideggerism has been adapted to local needs such as Alexander Dugin’s Eurasianism or even the strange hybrid of Theocratic-National-Bolshevism which came to power in Iran as Political Islam. However in England it has taken the form of Bourgeois-Christian Heideggerism. This English version may not be the most dangerous manifestation, however it is that which we most directly encounter here. Theresa May has become intoxicated with the “Führer-prinzip”, publicly day-dreaming of a world dominated by a new Anglo-American alliance. Obnoxious as this may be, the American president, at whose heels she snaps, will trump any new miseries she is able to foist upon us. This new form of English Heideggerism is not really philosophical – rather it is German philosophy wrapped in the demagoguery of French politics and finally marketed with the English economic zeal: that of a nation of shop-keepers. So much for “British values”. Despite its anti-intellectualism it is still rooted in existential angst. “Language is language” Heidegger mooted in one of his more “profound” moments. “Brexit means Brexit” echoes the Prime Minister.
