Heideggerian cud-chewing

Oh, these complacent, tweedy Heideggerians, grazing contentedly a life long within their enclosure, chewing endlessly on Gesamtausgabe-cud, quoting and promoting each other's narrative scholarly work and careers!

The question: Is there life after death? must become: Is there thinking after Heidegger? Certainly not from within this circle. Heidegger's famous question, "What calls for thinking?" here becomes a call to mime the master with a straight face.
