UHM? Herr Heidegger is a pure humanist, otherwise how do you square his views on animals (they are not or have not or partake not of Dasein, etc..)

It is not clear whether Lawrence Helm is quoting or offering his own
opinion, but he writes:

"Less 'troubling' but more serious is Heidegger?s 'anti-humanism'.?

Personally, it is precisely Heidegger's 'anti-humanism' that makes his
thought such a welcome relief to so much of modern philosophy.  The
modern preoccupation with experience and consciousness became a
narcissistic humanism (a tautology?) that reduced the world to human
thoughts and words.  Heidegger pushed back.  Furthermore, it is this
anti-humanism that I see as complicating the simple brush stroke that
paints the whole of Heidegger's thought as Nazi propaganda.

  [ _Quaestiones Naturales_, Adelard of Bath ]

Sull?orlo delle ciglia in oblìo
riproducimi il verso delle stelle
quando si vanno a scagliare
tra le ipotesi passate
di un presente privo di memorie.
Raccogli le mie penne
e gettale al fiume
ché non c?è seme di conoscenza
che non germini nel dolore.
Avanza l?autunno nel calpestìo delle foglie sul selciato
ed é un passo appena abbozzato
al calar della sera.
