EM, ). Heidegger’s translation here of Fragment  is very difficult to render in English, because he is endeavoring to put it in his own ontological idiom. In his translation from the lecture on Hölderlin of just a semester before, Heidegger had rendered polemos as Kampf (struggle). 13 Throughout this study, we shall leave this word in German; for the significance that Heidegger bestows upon it, by taking up these more conventional meanings of the word within his own appropriation of it, eludes all efforts at translation.

Other authors have already succeeded in showing that Heidegger was a committed Nazi. But fascism is multiple. Even if we could adequately understand historical National Socialism as a manifestation of fascism, it would not suffice for understanding and responding to new manifestations of such a politics. This is the error of much of the scholarship concerning the scandal: it takes the task to be either the demonstration or the refutation (or something in between) of a link between Heidegger’s work and actual National Socialism.

Heidegger’s “interpretative construction” (auslegender Auf bau, GA , ) must be predicated upon a deconstruction (Abbau) of one’s own history. But history is never simply ours. We do not create history or control its direction. When Heidegger speaks, again and again in the Contributions to Philosophy and other middle period works, of an “Auseinandersetzung between the first and an other inception to 17 18 Introduction history” (not simply another inception), he means that history itself, through the polemos between Dasein and Being, must engage in this deconstructive refounding of its trajectory or else slip into a nihilism, an end to history, a death of the worlding of the world.
