Heidegger the onticologist

"Heidegger was in error, and for the most surprising of reasons:  because he, perhaps more than any other philosopher in Western thought, was oblivious of the difference between being and beings."

     David Bentley Hart, "The offering of names:  metaphysics, nihilism, and analogy" (2005), in The hidden and the manifest:  essays in theology and metaphysics (Grand Rapids, MI:  Eerdmans, 2017), 9 (1-44).
