I also meant to chime in on Heidegger. I don't know much Heidegger, but I've started Being and Time many times. I am always struck by its beginning, i.e. that startingly obvious, but chillingly profound observation that metaphysics has historically been a study of presence. I always want to say "well, of course it has been!," but then I think of the implications of this in terms of the deification of presence being the lynchpin of the priveleged term of any binary. </babbling type="undergrad theory">
