çok hızlı, çok aceleci. Sorduğu her soru çok ciddi ama havada bırakıp kaçıyor. Politik anlamda Marx ve ötesi için çoğu yorum Carl Schmitt ve Löwith temelli gidiyorken sonunda Schmitt'i Führer'ci zaten yea diyip bırakıyor. Bu da Fransızlık oluyor herhalde?

To create a whole new world it must come from an aporia. Ex nihilo. Wow. Just wow.
