Eugen Fink. Overlooked genius or cloying sycophant?

How about overlooked cloying sycophantic genius. I don't know Fink's work very well on its own --- mostly I've just read the stuff he was editing/working on with Husserl at the end of Husserl's life as well as the lecture seminar he did with Heidegger on Heraclitus.

In both cases, what he says is good. It's just overshadowed by the work of non-overlooked geniuses.

Ask me anything
