Did Heidegger Say the Holocaust Was Jewish “Self-Annihilation”?

2,306 words

The Charge

One of the most sensational charges against Heidegger is that he claimed that the Holocaust was the “self-annihilation” (Selbstvernichtung) of the Jews. This charge was first made by Italian philosophy professor Donatella di Cesare in an article in Corriere Della Sere on February 9, 2015: “Heidegger: ‘Jews Self-Destructed’: New Black Notebooks Reveal Philosopher’s Shocking Take on Shoah.”[1] Read more …

Foreword to Graduate School with Heidegger
by an Anonymous Heidegger Scholar

You can order Greg Johnson’s Graduate School with Heidegger here.

622 words

What a gift it is, to have this collection of Greg Johnson’s essays on Heidegger available together in a real book, on real paper! All sorts of readers will appreciate Johnson’s lively, unpretentious, and accessible presentations of Heidegger’s thought, both those who have never read a word of Heidegger—and may thus stand in need of good reasons for doing so—and those, like me, who have been poring over the German philosopher’s writings for years now.

Johnson gives due credit to the best academic commentators on Heidegger, Read more …

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8

Mitch gathers Melanie’s still unconscious body into his arms and carries her down the stairs. Lydia walks ahead of him, carrying an oil lamp. “Oh, poor thing! Poor thing!” she says. Her resentment toward Melanie now completely gone, she feels only pity. Lydia goes to fetch bandages, as Mitch lays Melanie on the living room sofa. He asks Cathy to get some brandy, Read more …

5,468 words

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7

At first, we hear the sound of birds singing. The sound is pretty and harmless. Is it the lovebirds in the kitchen? Then we hear fluttering and flapping. This grows louder and louder and the pretty singing of a moment before is replaced by angry cawing and screeching. It is one of the most interesting scenes in the entire film. Read more …

With the gulls now retreating, Mitch and Melanie leave the Tides restaurant and make their way up the hill to Annie’s house to retrieve Cathy. All is deathly quiet.

(Editor’s Note: Mr. Hawthorne apologizes for repeatedly announcing the conclusion of this series. He is making it up as he goes along.)

For the last two installments, I have been principally occupied with an exposition of the ideas of the later Heidegger, and with a Heideggerean interpretation of The Birds. There is much more to be said, Read more …

We ended our last installment in the midst of the pivotal scene in the Tides Restaurant. There, we met Mrs. Bundy, a droll parody of modern, Western, pig-headed scientism. With arch condescension, she refuses to believe Melanie’s stories about the bird attacks. “Impossible!” Mrs. Bundy declares. “Their brain pans aren’t large enough. . . Really, let’s be logical about this,” Read more …

Christmas at Counter-Currents
Some Thoughts on Yule

3,342 words

Yule is the midwinter festival celebrated by my ancestors and by Germanic neo-pagans today. Midwinter is a time when much of nature seems to die or to depart. The trees are stripped of their leaves. The birds abandon us, flying off to warmer climes. Bears, badgers, chipmunks, and squirrels hibernate. Water freezes over. The earth is covered in ice and snow, so that nothing can grow. The air is so chilled that when we are out in it for too long, death becomes something tangible, and we rush inside.  Read more …

On Žižek, Nothingness, & Original Sin

4,950 words

On October 18, an essay appeared at Current Affairs entitled, “What is Žižek For?” by Thomas Moller-Nielsen. As you might expect from the title, it is a takedown of the high-profile Lacanian-Marxist philosopher Slavoj Žižek.

I found this to be an interesting read for a variety of reasons, the first of which was because of nomenclature. Read more …

Max Weber

Part 1 here

The Intellectual Bankruptcy of the Present Age

Not only does Strauss claim that historicism is a healthy reaction to the intellectual bankruptcy of the modern world, in the next section of his essay, he also attributes this bankruptcy to non-historicist causes.

First, Strauss talks about Max Weber’s Learning and Science as Vocation. He specifically objects to Weber’s claim that reason cannot speak about the ultimate aims of life: Read more …

Historicizing the Historicists:
Notes on Leo Strauss’ “The Living Issues of German Postwar Philosophy,” Part 1

3,215 words

Part 1 of 2 

Leo Strauss is widely known as a critic of historicism and an advocate of classical philosophy. Historicism holds that philosophical ideas are relative to culture, whereas classical philosophy aims for knowledge of nature, which is not relative to culture. But what is Strauss’s own point of view? Does he base his arguments on historicist or classical philosophical premises? Read more …

70 words / 15:44

The following conversation between Martin Heidegger and a Buddhist monk from Thailand, Bhikku Maha Mani, was filmed for West German television in 1963, and English subtitles were later added.

Valkoisuus

2,476  words

Suomentanut Timo Hännikäinen; English original here

Yksi ilmeinen tapa hyökätä valkoista nationalismia vastaan on väittää, että itse valkoisuuden käsite on ongelmallinen. Käsittelen nyt neljää sellaista vastaväitettä. Ensiksi, valkoisuuden käsitettä pidetään poliittisesti tarpeettomana. Toiseksi, valkoisuuden oletetaan kumoavan etnisen identiteetin. Kolmanneksi, valkoisuuden väitetään olevan sosiaalinen konstruktio, ei luonnollinen kategoria. Read more …

Whiteness

3,352 words

Translation: Finnish, Ukrainian

An obvious line of attack against White Nationalism is the claim that the very concept of whiteness is problematic. I wish to deal with four such objections. First, the concept of whiteness is supposed to be politically unnecessary. Second, whiteness is alleged to be subversive of ethnic identity. Third, whiteness is said to be a social construct, not a real natural kind. Fourth, the viability of White Nationalism is said to depend on an airtight definition of whiteness, which is elusive.  Read more …
