The sentence above is used by philosopher Martin Heidegger in his letter to Jean-Paul Sartre in 1945. Why did he use Le Passé Composé, though "depuis" is used?
Hi Emre can,
It is possible to use depuis with the Perfect.
"It's only since some / several weeks that I heard talk of you and your book"
In the sense of "recently" The hearing took place and was a completed action then.
Hope this helps.
