Have you read Fred Dallmayr's book _The Other Heidegger_?  He has been
trying to deal with your question for much of his career, and is trying to
read H.'s lecture courses of the 30's as developing a response to National
Socialism.  It's very good stuff.  Unfortunately Fred doesn't use
computers, so no email address.
