Your note interested me. I was occupied 14 days ago with the theme of heroism and the
ideology of
pastoralship /quasi catholicism (Hirten: Sloterdijk / Heidegger). Maybe you could
give me some references of where to seek this roots of ideology.
I am especially interested in the connection between secular "Hirten" and heroism.
