Works for me! I'm looking for truth. Heidegger's an authority because
he's made one of the greatest searches for it.

Are "language games" educational for you because they e-ducate you (lead
you) from a world to truth (the world)? Do you understand truth as the
E-vent (Er-eignis)? Do you like Heidegger because of his radical
relativism and historicism?
