Heidegger’s thought begins with a questioning of being, of the difference between being and beings. He intends this thinking of being to provide a new beginning of ontology, or something other than an ontology. This thinking need not have any connection with anti-Semitism, and yet in Heidegger’s Black Notebooks anti-Semitism is invoked within the thinking of being. This is because Heidegger thinks being in terms of a history of peoples. Russians, English, French, Italian, Americans, Japanese, but especially Germans and Greeks, all make their appearance in the Black Notebooks. Heidegger understands the new beginning of the thinking of being as one that must be brought about by a people.
