The wonky haziness of the manner of writing... so affected, and therefore could be very irritating, if weren't also quite mesmerizing. Essays 4 and 5 would probably be the best places to begin, and I found essays 3, 9, and 10 to be the most interesting and insightful.
The book has many bits that could serve as aphorism: "questioning is the piety of thought."(p.341), but contained within this set of essays is the notorious 'the nothing noths' which was ridiculed by positivists, and people who value clarity generally; it is here translated as "the nothing itself nihilates" (p.103). Other quotable bits are "History is the transporting of a people into its appointed task as entry into that people's endowment" (p.202) - he was, it should be noted, a Nazi by the time he wrote this.
