Heidegger talks about authenticity, but where does he talk about
authentic "types" of people? I think you're misreading him.

"Inauthentic" is not supposed to be pejorative. Heidegger makes this
clear in the SS 1927 "Basic Problems of Phenomenology" lectures. (I
mention this because I happen to be rereading them.)

To dismiss Heidegger is just as superficial as to champion him.
