I leave without turning,
  On our paths consumed,
  In the gold of a summer evening.
 
 
  I go without turning over,

  And the wind blowing,
  And the wind blowing.
 
 
  Not to crucify me
  On the waves of the ocean.
 
 
  Feelings ephemeral,
  Diadem covered with blood,
  Tears of dust,
  And the wind blowing,
  And the wind blowing,
  And the wind blowing,
  And the wind blowing,
  And the wind blowing.

2. Martin Heidegger: Heidegger is the only philosopher in the modern era who comes close to having as comprehensive a philosophical system as Kant. This is the first and possibly most substantial deviation I have from Leiter’s list. Notice Heidegger doesn’t even make that list. Unbelievable!

3. Edmund Husserl: The father of…
