wrt Forgetting of Air, have you time to spell out in what ways Irigaray
gets Heidegger very wrong? My brief readings of fragments of this text seem
to show Irigaray ventriloquising Heidegger brilliantly whilst adding new
dimensions to his thinking of Being (the only thing worth thinking) --
e.g., in substituting 'air' for 'light' in her depictions of the Clearing,
bringing Life (not aliveness), the breathing-bequeathing airiness into the
site of lightning...
can you help?
