Intellectuals who propose that "someone who never wrote might still be the greatest thinker, but no one would ever know." fail to acknowledge, that they wouldn't be here except for ancient people who could 'think' like animals, --and were successful hunters...





I doubt very much that many people outside the Bible Belt, whether intellectual or not, would fail to acknowledge this. But it isn't always what they aretalking about. The title of Heidegger's treatise actually suggests he was doing something somewhat akin to what we are doing here: he was asking was is called thinking.
