Like Wittgenstein, he was frequently concerned with clarifying the use of language in the field -- so, for example, he suggested that the effects of psychiatric drugs (some of which are very deleterious, such as tardive diskensia) be called just that: "effects", and not be referred to by the preferred euphemisms of the drug companies, who prefer to call them "side effects".

His family was not as religious as Kafka himself might have liked, but when you take into consideration that his family died in concentration camps, it is obvious why his father might not have been very public with his faith. On the other hand, Schopenhauer qualifies all this with the belief that denial of the will and renunciation of the world are acts that are an expression of freedom after all and that they provide the foundation for moral consciousness. In this regard I think that Heidegger's ontological critique of subjectivity can also bear fruit in moral philosophy.
