CARRASCO PIRARD, Eduardo. HEIDEGGER, ROUSSEAU, NACIONALISMO Y UNIVERSALIDAD. Rev. filos. [online]. 2010, vol.66, pp. 175-193. ISSN 0718-4360. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-43602010000100011.
This article puts forward Heidegger's criticism of Rousseau's idea of the Social Contract and shows how it leads the German thinker to affirm prevalence offacticity over universalism. This drift helps to explain why Heidegger fell into nationalism and why he sympathised with Nazi politics, moving away from the universalist purposes entailed by every philosophy.
