Matt, just loads of thanks for this very valuable link to the television show about Heidegger. As part of my eightieth anniversary celebration of the publication of Heidegger's Being and Time, I am also reading what so far is a very valuable, very well written (and thus well translated) biography. Martin Heidegger: Between Good and Evil by Rüdiger Safranski, trans. Ewald Osers. Came out in 1998, published by Harvard. But thanks again for this very valuable reference.

Yes, thanks for this posting. But what is the jibe at Sartre, and why is it deserving?

The film is one of three in a series; the others on Nietzsche and on Sartre (see the link). I suppose it's part of a running but serious joke; the one on Sartre is mentioned as an afterthought and called "predictable"; the jibe however has more to do with the clichéd way such "official," popular sources as the BBC tend to present (Saint) Sartre (when they can even be bothered with philosophy), not least of all as the last Great French Philosopher worthy of any note...which is of course ludicrous.
An anonymous commenter at This Space further quips, re:Sartre, "...misanthropic mediocrity never had it so good," which is certainly unfair, but in context still made me smile.

I enjoyed it rather immensely, like after I cut the sound. Spitze!
