Ormai solo un dio ci può salvare è il titolo che los angeles redazione dello "Spiegel" diede a un colloquio che si svolse trentatré anni dopo, il 23 settembre 1966, tra Heidegger e due inviati del settimanale. Secondo l. a. volontà di Heidegger, questo testo - in cui risponde alle accuse che gli sono country rivolte - non doveva essere pubblicato se non dopo los angeles sua morte.

Ormai solo un dio ci può salvare è un contributo al chiarimento del "caso Heidegger", ma anche il prezioso documento di un pensiero che - venerato o detestato che esso sia - domina l. a. filosofia europea del Novecento.
