Why Heidegger appears difficult …

”If you find yourself making sense of Heidegger by relating what he’s discussing with concepts from another philosopher, you’re mistaken. Heidegger understands things in a different way, so the challenge is to discover how to think along with him. The difficulty isn’t that his way of thinking is particularly complicated, but that it is different.”

– Quoted from http://enowning.blogspot.com, commenting on the book “ Heidegger’s Later Writings A Reader’s Guide. Lee Braver, London, Continuum, 2009.”
