Die Nichtung

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 12:00 PM

"It seems that Hilbert had no taste for philosophers….
Hans Rademacher told this reviewer that, after Heidegger
once lectured in Göttingen, Hilbert gleefully repeated
to everyone the phrase "Das Nichts nichtet die Nichtung ."

— Gian-Carlo Rota, Discrete Thoughts , 2nd ed., p. 233

philosophy of "the opening" and "the shining" (Die Lichtung ).)
