These are not naive questions at all.  They are well put.  I think about,
obsess about, them myself.  I will only say now that I read in Sylvan
Tomkins (sp?) about patients, children, who suffered shame to the extend
of being ashamed of their shame and hiding or repressing it.  Shame is at
bottom ashamed of itself.  Like Being in Heidegger, and I think Agamben
makes that point.  So finally, the question of shame may depend on how one
comes to terms with Heidegger's thought of Being.
