Americans inspired by Heidegger include the philosopher Hubert Dreyfus, who used Heidegger to challenge assumptions about the pretensions of artificial intelligence, and the filmmaker Terrence Malick, who was a Heidegger scholar before he turned to filmmaking. That has changed in the last decade or so, with the posthumous publication of works long locked away, such as the Notebooks themselves. Now the time has come for a reckoning. His writings are notoriously difficult because of the very peculiar terminology he develops to express his ideas, but once one gets a feel for the core question he wants to ask, one can see that he is seeking to overturn years of Western thought and that he thinks he needs a new language for a new thinking.

That question is announced by the title of the work that made him famous in Being and Time. In the Notebooks, Heidegger returns often to that book, regretting some of its shortcomings but always reaffirming what remained essential to him: In English, the question of Being might best be expressed by asking, what does it mean for anything, any being at all, to be? According to Heidegger, for nearly years, the West has answered the Being question in ways that are in some manner indebted to Plato.

Heidegger's schwarze Hefte.pdf

Plato asked, how is it possible that any being — be it chair, dog, mountain, triangle, law — be meaningful to us in the first place, as what it is or even seems to be? His answer is perhaps the most famous in philosophy: In ordinary Greek, an idea is a thing seen with the eye, a distinct form that distinguishes this being a chair, say, or a dog, or a square from that one a table, or a cat, or a circle thereby giving the visible world a navigable meaning.

The ideas, as what each thing truly is, transcend the transitory. Being for Plato exists in a realm beyond time, beyond change, beyond the senses; the world of chairs and dogs and triangles on a blackboard, even historical concepts like law, are simply dimmer or brighter reflections of what truly is.

Following Nietzsche, Heidegger holds that both Judaism and Christianity became carriers of Platonism for the people, with God taking the place of the ideas as the source of all that is real. Modernity set in with Descartes, who made the self-conscious human subject displace God as the touchstone for reality: Metaphysics, he claims, has utterly forgotten the simplicity and corresponding difficulty of the question of what it means to be. Being is not the eternal; it is the radically finite: He is the most radical historicist: In the Notebooks, Heidegger sharpens a critique of modernity and the West familiar from his other works.

He gives the forgetting of the question of Being and the ascent of metaphysics the name nihilism because metaphysics treats that question as if it were nothing. By elevating the human subject to the center of what is, modernity has brought on the fullest expression of metaphysics, which Heidegger calls machination in the Notebooks.

The human subject, once so proudly presuming to wield science and technology as the crown and scepter of its own deification, finds itself instead subject to machination as just another resource: For Heidegger, an inception is more than a beginning, which can be factually dated on a timeline; an inception is an event that takes hold over the meaning of a historical world for human beings across generations, even millennia.

The first inception began when the Greeks first asked the question of Being, but they fumbled it when Plato allowed philosophy to lapse into metaphysics. All he knows is that it will require the complete transformation of what it means to be human, away from the self-deifying subjectivism of modernity.

In the entries of the early s, Heidegger thinks the Germans have a special role to play in this overturning of history, but not because of race, as in conventional Nazi doctrine: This can only happen, though, if the German people, the Volk, actually grasp this as their decisive historical task. This also explains why Heidegger took on the role as head of his university: In the entries of , we feel his excitement: They can prepare such transformations, but they can also undermine them.

Heidegger sought a radical over-turning that would not simply shake things up but plough them under.

He wanted a transformation of history and humanity so profound that nothing in the last two millennia would prepare us for it. By the late s, the Notebooks demonstrate the inevitable consequences of such extraordinary hubris and risk-taking on the grand scale: Virtually nothing and no one escapes his withering scorn and critique. Why Nazism?

Why Anti-Semitism? For one thing, the Notebooks show that the Nazi revolution was only anopportunity for Heidegger, a moment when the overturning might be possible, not guaranteed. He was proud enough to think he could become the leader in spirit of this movement, as Marx was to Communism, but the movement failed him and the historical rupture it should have served, not the other way around.

Furthermore, Communism itself was, for Heidegger, just another form of Platonism.

Much like the Christian end-times and apocalypse, Communism promises an end of history, a complete fulfillment of human destiny. In the Nazis, Heidegger thought he had found a movement that would reject universalistic liberalism in all its forms — Christianity, the secular Enlightenment, Communism — in favor of a politics that would root human history in the communal belonging of a finite historical people.

For example: As such, the Jews are just another representative of Platonic universalism, or liberalism on the grand scale. But they are a dangerous representative — one that includes these other forms, Americanism and Bolshevism — because their machinating rootlessness had become the spirit of the age.

Some further points: Nevertheless, the passage quoted above singles out the Jews for a particular condemnation: Furthermore, while Heidegger does indeed come to criticize Nazism and many other things besides in the Notebooks, he never criticizes the Nazi policies against the Jews.

Nor does he explain or apologize, either here or later, for the part he played in such policies in an official position as head of his university from to This is unforgivable. Life after Death? There is more than one way for philosophers to die. As human beings, they all die, just like the rest of us. As the name for a body of work, they can also die through neglect, refutation, or scorn. Heidegger the man is dead, of course, but is the kingdom of his work dead, too, given the revelations of theNotebooks?

Heidegger, Martin: Überlegungen II-VI (Schwarze Hefte 1931–1938)

By taking it up, even in reading him, we are not obliged to respond as he did. Furthermore, that question is no mere academic chestnut: It is also the question of Being itself, which encompasses what it means to be human at all. We may rightly despise Heidegger for his anti-Semitism and his Nazism. But who we are, and who we are going to be as human beings in a newly global world, is indeed still very much the question, and we seem allergic even to asking it seriously.

It is not just in the Athens of Socrates that the examined life was both the calling and the burden of thinking.

So however we might judge Heidegger the man, it is worth taking stock of how much in crisis we remain after the horrors of the 20th century. Fascism is a particularly modern phenomenon, because it arises amidst the uprooting of traditional life at break-neck speed; it announces a longing for belonging that rejects liberal universalism, the rule of law, and mixed government in favor of a rootedness in atavistic identity — be it race, religion, ethnicity, or culture — violence, and unquestioning dedication to a leader.

If we want to resist this atavism in its new forms, we must face up to how uninspiring liberal democracy has allowed itself to become as an alternative.

Today, the far right is ascending across Europe, with xenophobia and anti- Semitism on the rise. The trouble is that science can tell us what human beings are, as collections of atoms or products of evolution since the Big Bang, but science as such can neither tell us who we are nor provide the moral compass forwhere we should be going, given that we are here.

Philosophy is dead only if we mistake its proper domain. In all of the following footnotes, the abbreviation GA refers toSchwarze Hefte. The number following the abbreviation refers to volumes of the Schwarze Hefte. Klostermann, Detractors, on the other hand, claim that Nazism so infects his thinking that it must be discredited entirely.

Of course there are positions between these extremes as well; the Notebooks promised to settle this debate by exposing Heideggers private thoughts from the period.

Heidegger certainly speaks here on a variety of topics with a personal frankness rarely seen elsewhere in his work, but two are especially telling. One is that Heidegger explicitly declares, Thinking purely metaphysically that is, in terms of the history of Being , in the years I took National Socialism as the possibility of a crossing-over to another beginning and gave it this meaning.

His involvement was therefore no trivial opportunism. Secondly, the Notebooks contain several passages some of which I will discuss below in more detail that can only be described as anti-Semitic, and not just in an off-hand way, but rather as expressions of Heideggers philosophical understanding of history.

The immediate question might then well be: if Heideggers Nazism and anti-Semitism are confirmed by the Notebooks, then what more is there to know? Why should anyone care now about someone whose thinking can be tied to such abominations?

Why not just kick him to the curb? One answer as to why we should care is that we just do, as evidenced by the present uproar over the Notebooks. People delight in the tabloid spectacle of a once-famous figure made infamous by their own failings, as we know all too well from our appetite for political scandal. Such morbid rubbernecking ill suits the seriousness of Heideggers case, though, because he has indeed been one of the most influential thinkers of the past years.

One reason to take the Notebooks seriously, therefore, is to understand how a figure who inspired such a wide following could have held such views and what this might mean for his legacy. This is a question of intellectual history and influence. While it is important, there remains an even deeper one: whether there is anything left for us to think about in reading Heidegger; whether in theNotebooks or the rest of a body of work that will amount to over volumes, there was something other than Nazism and anti-Semitism at work.

The Hidden King and His Legacy To answer these questions, we need to understand why Heidegger had the electrifying impact he did. When he began teaching after the First World War, Heidegger was just another obscure junior lecturer without a secure university position.

He had published nothing of note. Nevertheless, in that early period, a strange kind of subterranean fame preceded him. Late in her life, Hannah Arendt, the German-born Jewish philosopher who escaped the Nazi regime in , described what it was like to be Martin Heideggers student when he was a young teacher in Marburg, Germany. Heideggers strange fame, she explained, was based entirely on the extraordinary effect of his lectures on the old works of the great figures in philosophyPlato, Aristotle, Kant, and otherswhich opened up philosophical questions in ways that astonished the students: These lectures dealt with texts that were generally familiar; they contained no doctrine that could have been learned, reproduced, and handed on.

There was hardly more than a name, but the name traveled all over Germany like the rumor of the hidden king. Those students included many who would go on to become influential thinkers in their own right.

Whatever Heideggers anti-Semitism was then, he must have kept it quite private. He was clearly adept at wearing a mask for years, even decades. Heideggers kingdom extended beyond Jewish students, too, of course. For example, among the Germans, there was Hans-Georg Gadamer, who made important contributions to hermeneutics, the study of meaning and interpretation, and Jrgen Habermas, an avid reader of Heidegger, was one of the few to criticize him openly after the war.

Most such students and admirers were shocked when he came out in support of the Nazis, and he managed to convince most of his followers after the war that this episode was merely a brief, clumsy attempt to protect the university until his resignation as its head in Heideggers influence soon became international.

Among the French, Jean- Paul Sartres existentialism is greatly indebted to Heidegger, as are the deconstructionism of Jacques Derrida and the discourse analysis of Michel Foucault.

Americans inspired by Heidegger include the philosopher Hubert Dreyfus, who used Heidegger to challenge assumptions about the pretensions of artificial intelligence, and the filmmaker Terrence Malick, who was a Heidegger scholar before he turned to filmmaking. There is also Heideggers wide-ranging impact on academic life in the universities, from literary studies, to architecture, to psychotherapy and theology. Particularly remarkable about Heideggers legacy is its political diversity, from Leo Strauss on the right, considered the founding inspiration for the neo-conservative movement in the United States, to those on the left such as Sartre and Derrida, who combined Heideggerian ideas with Marxism or forged new intellectual movements, such as deconstruction.

Even Herbert Marcuses work, which played a key role in the emergence of the New Left and the counterculture of the s through its critique of the dehumanizing effects of mass society, consumerism, and technology run amok, derived in part from Heideggers analysis of human beings everyday inauthenticity and his critique of modern hyper-rationalism.

Heideggers diverse influence is all the more striking because, apart from the overt involvement in National Socialism from to , his publications themselves have had, until recently, virtually nothing to say about political philosophy or ethics conventionally understood. That has changed in the last decade or so, with the posthumous publication of works long locked away, such as the Notebooks themselves.

Now the time has come for a reckoning. The Question But what is it, specifically, about Heideggers thought that has proven so gripping to so many? His writings are notoriously difficult because of the very peculiar terminology he develops to express his ideas, but once one gets a feel for the core question he wants to ask, one can see that he is seeking to overturn years of Western thought and that he thinks he needs a new language for a new thinking.

That question is announced by the title of the work that made him famous in Being and Time. In the Notebooks, Heidegger returns often to that book, regretting some of its shortcomings but always reaffirming what remained essential to him: the questionof the meaning of Being as the most fundamental question of all philosophy. Dont be misled by the capitalization, which is only to distinguish Being from beings in English; for Heidegger, Being is not just some very important being among other things that is the explanatory key to all reality, be it the Supreme Being God or the formulae of mathematical physics underlying the Big Bang.

In English, the question of Being might best be expressed by asking, what does it mean for anything, any being at all, to be? Being, as what it means to be, is not itself a being or a thing, however exalted. According to Heidegger, for nearly years, the West has answered the Being question in ways that are in some manner indebted to Plato.

Plato asked, how is it possible that any being be it chair, dog, mountain, triangle, law be meaningful to us in the first place, as what it is or even seems to be? His answer is perhaps the most famous in philosophy: the ideas, a word we have in English thanks largely to Plato. In ordinary Greek, an idea is a thing seen with the eye, a distinct form that distinguishes this being a chair, say, or a dog, or a square from that one a table, or a cat, or a circle thereby giving the visible world a navigable meaning.

Platos ideas, however, are seen with the minds eye, not the bodys: when we ask what something truly is, be it chair or dog, or mathematical things like triangles and numbers, or even abstractions like law or courage, the answer is not this dog or that triangle or this law or that courageous act, for these are all just transient exemplars; it is the idea of the dog, the triangle, law, or courage.

The ideas, as what each thing truly is, transcend the transitory. Being for Plato exists in a realm beyond time, beyond change, beyond the senses; the world of chairs and dogs and triangles on a blackboard, even historical concepts like law, are simply dimmer or brighter reflections of what truly is.

Throughout the Notebooks, Heidegger reaffirms his view that this Platonic misconception of Being as the eternal and unchanging basis of all reality has driven Western thought ever since, even if it no longer uses Platos language of the ideas. Following Nietzsche, Heidegger holds that both Judaism and Christianity became carriers of Platonism for the people, with God taking the place of the ideas as the source of all that is real.

Modernity set in with Descartes, who made the self-conscious human subject displace God as the touchstone for reality: the methodologies of the sciences decide what really is, and the technologies that the sciences set loose serve the human subject as the presumptive new master of the objective universe even if a master still in swaddling clothes.

Despite how far the sciences may think themselves advanced beyond Platonism, Heideggers argument is that they still hold that the meaning of what is must be expressed in the form of timeless laws and formulae, accessible only to the mind, that transcend the seemingly given world around us.

Everything that has happened since Plato Heidegger calls metaphysics, his word for all thinking that attempts to explain what it means to be by reference to some thing, some other being, whether that be the ideas, God, the human subject, or the laws of modern mathematical physics.

Metaphysics, he claims, has utterly forgotten the simplicity and corresponding difficulty of the question of what it means to be. Being is not the eternal; it is the radically finite: the meaning of Being is bound up with how we interpret what any thing is and all beings are as a whole, but that meaning is always bounded by time for Heidegger.

He is the most radical historicist: truth as meaning is not the securing of a subjects representation as corresponding to an eternal, objective reality; truth is the time-bound unfolding of how the world simply is meaningful to us as historical human beings, embedded in a given time, place, and tradition.

The event of that unfolding truth is not our subjective possession to control; it happens to us as the overwhelming power of time as it opens up a meaningful historical world to us. In the Notebooks, Heidegger sharpens a critique of modernity and the West familiar from his other works.

He gives the forgetting of the question of Being and the ascent of metaphysics the name nihilism because metaphysics treats that question as if it were nothing.

Art, Politics, and Truth in Heidegger’s Anti-Semitism

By elevating the human subject to the center of what is, modernity has brought on the fullest expression of metaphysics, which Heidegger calls machination in the Notebooks. Machination aims at the total domination of nature, both as material stuff and as forms of energy, and acknowledges as a being only what can be subjected to this domination.

The human subject, once so proudly presuming to wield science and technology as the crown and scepter of its own deification, finds itself instead subject to machination as just another resource: human resources as we are now pleased to call ourselves. What remains is what Heidegger follows Ernst Jnger in calling the total mobilization of all such resources for all domains of activity: industry, war, education, culture, even entertainment, all in service to a titanic will to power.

The only standard left is the gigantic: that which makes sheer quantity into quality. The Politics of the Crossing-Over Throughout the Notebooks, Heidegger describes the trajectory of Platonism that culminates in this titanic nihilism as the fulfillment of the first inception of Western history.

For Heidegger, an inception is more than a beginning, which can be factually dated on a timeline; an inception is an event that takes hold over the meaning of a historical world for human beings across generations, even millennia. The first inception began when the Greeks first asked the question of Being, but they fumbled it when Plato allowed philosophy to lapse into metaphysics. The Notebooks demonstrate how ardently, even desperately, he hoped for an other inception, especially during those early years of the s, when he had thought that National Socialism might be the catalyst for a crossing-over to a new history.

What will come, knows no one, [6] wrote; no one knows, because it will not be the other inception, or even another inception, as if it were a definite cyclical occurrence, but rather an entirely other inception that cannot be predicted or measured by the standards of the first one.

All he knows is that it will require the complete transformation of what it means to be human, away from the self-deifying subjectivism of modernity. In the entries of the early s, Heidegger thinks the Germans have a special role to play in this overturning of history, but not because of race, as in conventional Nazi doctrine: Only the German can give new poetic voice to Being.

Through their philosophers, their language, their poets, the Germans alone stand as the decisive counterpoint to the Greeks at the first inception of history; only they, he believes, can see metaphysics through to its bitter end and find a way to express a new mode of thinking. This can only happen, though, if the German people, the Volk, actually grasp this as their decisive historical task. For Heidegger, the Volk is not to be defined racially but rather by its ability to take on this fateful burden and make itself question-worthy, not as a what as in the racial conception of human being, but rather as a who for whom the epochal questions of the age remain powerfully open by asking, Who are we?

This also explains why Heidegger took on the role as head of his university: to lead a new generation onto this path of ending one era and starting another. In the entries of , we feel his excitement: The university is dead; long live the future school of higher learning for the education of the Germans to knowledge [8] ; and: The great experience and gladness that the Fhrer has awaked a new reality that gives our thinking the right road and its strength for impact.That one of the centurys most influential philosophers would seemingly join forces with one of the most barbaric regimes has been the source of endless controversy.
