Since the publication of the »black notebooks«, a new international debate has been raging about Heidegger's Nazi sympathies and anti-Semitism. In the interest of contemporary philosophical culture, Reinhard Mehring puts the discussion into historical perspective and focuses on the politics behind Heidegger's literary estate.
Since the publication of the »black notebooks«, a new international debate has been raging about Heidegger's Nazi sympathies and anti-Semitism. In the interest of contemporary philosophical culture, Reinhard Mehring puts the discussion into historical perspective and focuses on the politics behind Heidegger's literary estate. He analyses the emergence and eccentric style of Heidegger's writings and develops Heidegger's rationale of a post-metaphysical hermeneutic of the philosopher's universitarian »being-there«. He also investigates intellectual constellations and influences while further analysis is made of Heiddeger's role in National Socialism, of the Gesamtausgabe and the establishment of Heideggerianism as his work's telos. Following the example of Nietzsche, Heidegger shifted his »big politics« from the academic setting to the politics of his literary estate in order to found a »different thinking« with the »breeding and disciplining« of the Heideggerian as »future human« and »Übermensch".
