Fraentzki probably does overestimate the question concerning
being in the "hermeneutical" sense. At the same time, he does
not just "over-estimate" but also justiifies its importance
- within the context of his book, i.e. a re-thinking of the
main Heideggerian themes.
He seems to over-estimate his subject in a non-hermeneutical
sense when he criticizes Habermas and Gadamer because they
don't fit into this context (don't think within the
"Hermeneutical over-estimation" seems to legitimate a liberal
attitude towards a "text".
