Henk, thank you for your response but I fear we have not communicated
well on this. I understand the move from entschlossenheit to
gelassenheit. Zimmerman equates gelassneheit with authenticity on p. xix
of his preface -- "...included a voluntaristic strain that would later
disappear in the notion of authenticity as releasement (Gelassenheit)."
You have pointed out a signficant feature of Zimmerman's account of the
"Kehre", but I wasn't really asking about that. Since I value your input
greatly, perhaps you could have another look at my posting. If I'm
really not clear, I will try again to ask the questions.
