Given the recent publication of another volume in German of Heidegger’s Black Notebooks (Anmerkungen, volume 97 of Heidegger’s Collected Edition), Nancy appends some remarks concerning Heidegger’s relationship to Christianity. He finds this relationship to be marked by a view, on Heidegger’s part, that Christianity itself is divided between a “univocal” aspect, more in line with his own thinking of being and the originary beginning, and an “equivocal” or ambiguous aspect, associated more with the institutional and dogmatic aspects of Christianity. This view suggests a strange rivalry between Heidegger’s thinking and a certain Christianity, despite the philosopher’s proclaimed anti-Christianism. What remains unexamined is the place of Judaism within this broad historical dynamic.
