Martin Heidegger’s Black Notebooks and Peter Trawny’s Heidegger and the Myth of the Jewish World Conspiracy: Critical Reflections on Husserl, Heidegger, and “Historical-Ontological Anti-Semitism”
George Heffernan, Merrimack College

Abstract:  In Heidegger and the Myth of the Jewish World Conspiracy (2014), Peter Trawny, the editor of Martin Heidegger’s Black Notebooks (2014/15), claims that in his Black Notebooks Heidegger embraces what Trawny calls “historical-ontological anti-Semitism.” There can be doubt that Heidegger describes “the Jews” as a “kind of humanity” that lives by “the principle of race”, displays “empty rationality and calculative skill”, and employs “the machinations of world Jewry” to propagate a “homeless” and “worldless” way of life accompanied by “ahistorical” and “atemporal” thinking—as a “people” that took advantage of the metaphysics of the West, especially in its modern development, to further “the uprooting of all beings from Being” as its “world-historical task”.  A key question is what role Heidegger assigns his former mentor, colleague, and friend, Edmund Husserl, the founder of the phenomenological movement and a Jew (albeit also a convert to Christianity), in his narrative, since he seems to establish a connection between Husserl’s Jewishness and his philosophy and suggests that his break with him was the result of the latter’s refusal to deal with Being in terms of history. The presentation investigates whether Heidegger’s remarks and Trawny’s reflections have any significant implications for an understanding of the philosophical relationship between Husserl and Heidegger.

Refreshments will be served.

Jim Stergios (Executive Director, Pioneer Institute)
David Paleologos (Director, Suffolk University Political Research Center)

With so many representatives of the people pushing policies that the people don’t like, one wonders how we got to this point. If we insist on a modicum of qualification for all who determine how the state runs our lives – including ourselves – it follows that we will reap better results. But should a citizen have to pass a test on current events to vote? Or should our members of Congress have to pass a simple science test to serve on a science-oriented committee? Most importantly, would this method of civic testing break through voter apathy, particularly among young adults, or further alienate them? Let’s review whether Americans are savvy enough to participate in a democracy and, if not, how we might adjust our civic processes to encourage us all to rise to the occasion.
