It refers to the critical edition of the collected works
[Gesamptausgabe=GA] GA 52 is Heidegger's lecture course from the
Winter semester of 1941-2 on Hoelderlin's hymn 'Remembrance'
[Andenken]. Parts have been translated in _Existence and Being_,
see e.g. p. 258: "Homecoming is the return into the proximity of
the source. But such a return is only possible for one who has
previously, and perhaps for a long time now, borne on his shoulders
as a wanderer the burden of the voyage..." (E&B 258).

As for the theme of alterity, it is pervasive in the works of the
40's (and grows out of the work on ontological difference which
began in B&T (ontological difference) and evolves clearly and decisively through the various
versions of his treatment of metaphysics (1935-53: being is not a
being). Derrida didn't
pull differance out of the thin air of alterity... ;)

Derrida pursues a reading of being as alterity, and the problem of
'negative theology' in an amazing article collected by Coward and
Foshay in _Derrida and Negative Theology_,

To those who are singing the praises of Rosen's book: What do you
make of the strong anti-Heidegger polemic? (I.e., that "thinking
isn't about anything.")
