Gaetano Chiurazzi, Luca Savarino and Vincenzo Vitiello discuss Donatella Di Cesare's "Heidegger e gli ebrei" ("Heidegger and the Jews"). The authors present Di Cesare's reading of the "Black Notebooks" and critically analyze it. Chiurazzi interprets Heidegger's position as an attempt to abandon the formal and unhistorical perspective of Being and Time. Savarino deals with Di Cesare's reading of the «Jewish Question» and compares it with Heidegger's early interest in Christian theology. Vitiello finds the most problematical and interesting aspect of Heidegger's philosophy in the deep conflict, already evident in "Being and Time", between the «pagan» idea of human belonging to earth, that is the philosophical root of Heidegger's anti-Semitism and Nazism, and the «Christian» sense of "Da-sein's" nothingness.
