Affair Figal

I gathered Figal is quite a well-known person in the Heideggerian circles. Don't know him but I liked his attitude of resigning the presidency of the Martin Heidegger Geselschaft for it seems that one has to be more faithful to philosophy than to any philosopher.
This is an interview with him. Whether or not he knew the content of the Black Notebooks beforehand is an issue but not a crucial one, I guess. It is unlikely, as a chair, that he didn't have privileged access to this writings of Heidegger. But still, he did what seems to be the right thing making clear that he believes that one doesn't think the way Heidegger does (in the Black Notebook), not if one is a philosopher.
