... APRIL 2, 1981 Willis Domingo, reply by Thomas Sheehan E-MAIL PRINT SHARE To the Editors: Thomas Sheehan’s otherwise illuminating discussion of editorial problems in Heidegger’s Gesamtausgabe suffers from at least two lapses which bear correcting. In the first place, Ereignis means “event” through much of Heidegger’s writing, as it does in normal German. To cite it as an example of arcane terminology on the basis of Heidegger’s speculations about its etymology (eignen) is to over-confuse a supposedly non-technical presentation. Heidegger should not be made more difficult than he is.
Willis Domingo has all the usual degrees. In 2005 he became the Transcendental Ego.
