Martin Heidegger - Der Spiegel Interview 1966 (English translation): | Parmenides' message |

This is the famous "Der Spiegel Interview" from 1966 in which Heidegger discusses the current crisis of nihilism and his rejection of some kind of fusion of East and West. A return to, and a resuscitation of the Western Tradition is here anticipated as essential. Heidegger also here gives some further information which may help one to think about his motives in 1933 and thereafter. It is suggested that this piece be read in conjunction with the essay "On Existentialism", by Leo Strauss, also available on the Internet Archive.
