Reading choices.

I'm currently wondering if it's worth the time to read some Heidegger. I'm mostly through the introduction to Being and Time and I'm not sure I can stand reading much more than that. It seems dense without the beauty of Derrida and very very repetitive.

Brave man if you do. Also, go out and eat some German Oktoberfest food before you do. He'll be easier to digest with red cabbage, braut and beer in your belly. Oh! And Black Forest Cake...mit schlag.

He's hard to read, which is fine, but hard to read when the payoff seems relatively slight is not. I finished the introduction, then skipped on ahead to Derrida.
