Yvonne
5 stars for the massive amount of insight, information & sources used, 3 stars for the style of arguing.
I read Heidegger's Being and Time; I felt Vizenor's theoretical language and arguing is far more difficult to grasp than his and I wonder if Vizenor makes things more obscure than they are by his way of writing. Complexity does not have to equal a lack in transparency....
