According to Emmanuel Faye, Heidegger supported the "necessity of a Führer " for Germany as early as In a number of speeches during November , Heidegger endorses the Führerprinzip "leader principle" , i. For example, in one speech Heidegger stated:. Let not propositions and 'ideas' be the rules of your being Sein. The Führer alone is the present and future German reality and its law.
Learn to know ever more deeply: In another speech a few days later, Heidegger endorsed the German election of November , in which the electorate was presented with a single Nazi-approved list of candidates:. The German people has been summoned by the Führer to vote; the Führer, however, is asking nothing from the people; rather, he is giving the people the possibility of making, directly, the highest free decision of all: There is only one will to the full existence Dasein of the State. The Führer has awakened this will in the entire people and has welded it into a single resolve.
Later in November , Heidegger attended a conference at the University of Tübingen organized by the students of the university and the Kampfbund , the local Nazi Party chapter. In this address, he argued for a revolution in knowledge, a revolution that would displace the traditional idea that the university should be independent of the state:.
We have witnessed a revolution. The state has transformed itself. This revolution was not the advent of a power pre-existing in the bosom of the state or of a political party. The national-socialist revolution means rather the radical transformation of German existence. In that interview, he stated: Such things as that I stopped saying by In a recent book, however, Hans Jonas , a former student of Heidegger, argues that Heidegger's endorsement of the "Führer principle" stemmed from his philosophy and was consistent with it:.
But as to Heidegger's being, it is an occurrence of unveiling, a fate-laden happening upon thought: Jonas' reading can be supported by citations from Heidegger's lectures during and immediately following the time he was rector. In "On the Essence and Concept of Nature, History and State", for instance, Heidegger appears to give a direct ontological sanction to Hitler's absolute rule:.
The origin of all political action is not in knowledge, but in being. Every Führer is a Führer, must be a Führer [italics in original], in accordance with the stamp in his being, and simultaneously, in the living unfolding of his proper essence, he understands, thinks, and puts into action what the people and the state are. In his class on Holderlin, Heidegger is able to comment that "The true and only Fuhrer makes a sign in his being towards the domain [ bereich , empire] of the demigods.
In his postwar justification, Heidegger claimed he resigned the rectorship in April because the ministry in Karlsruhe had demanded the dismissal of the deans Erik Wolf and Wilhelm von Mollendorf on political grounds. By the beginning of , there were reports in Berlin that Heidegger had established himself as 'the philosopher of National Socialism'.
But to other Nazi thinkers, Heidegger's philosophy appeared too abstract, too difficult, to be of much use [ It is not surprising that his enemies were able to enlist the support of Alfred Rosenberg , whose own ambition it was to be the philosopher of Nazism himself. After he resigned from the rectorship, Heidegger withdrew from most political activity but he never withdrew his membership in the Nazi party.
What today is systematically touted as the philosophy of National Socialism, but which has nothing in the least to do with the inner truth and greatness of this movement namely the encounter of a globally determined technology with the man of the new age , darts about with fish-like movements in the murky waters of these 'values' and 'totalities'.
The whole lecture shows that I was at that time an adversary of the regime. The understanding ears knew therefore how to interpret the sentence. One had to throw them a crumb here and there in order to keep freedom of teaching and speaking. This lecture was published in under the title An Introduction to Metaphysics. In the published version, Heidegger left the sentence, but added a parenthetical qualification: However, Heidegger did not mention that this qualification was added at the time of publication, and was not part of the original lecture.
This raised concerns in post-Nazi Germany that Heidegger was distinguishing a "good Nazism" from a "bad Nazism", a contention supported by his philosophical opponents, including Bauemler [ citation needed ]. The controversial page of the manuscript is missing from the Heidegger Archives in Marbach. Heidegger defended himself during the denazification period by claiming that he had opposed the philosophical bases of Nazism, especially biologism and the Nazi interpretation of Nietzsche's The Will to Power.
However, in a lecture, Heidegger still sounded rather ambiguous as to whether Nietzsche's thought was compatible with Nazism, or at least with that hypothetical "good Nazism": According to personal notes made in not published until , Heidegger took stong exception to Hitler's statement, "There is no attitude, which could not be ultimately justified by the ensuing usefulness for the totality.
Who makes up this totality? Eighty million-strong extant human mass? Does its extantness assign to this human mass the right to the claim on a continued existence?
How is this totality determined? What is its goal? Is it itself the goal of all goals? Wherein lies the justification for this goal-setting? On what is this principle grounded?
Does comprehensibility justify legitimacy? However, in a lecture, published posthumously, Heidegger was once again ambiguous on the subject of Nazism. During a discussion of then recent German classics scholarship, he said that: This overenthusiasm on the part of academics seems not even to notice that with such "results" it does National Socialism and its historical uniqueness no service at all, not that it needs this anyhow.
In the same lecture, he commented on America's entry into World War II, in a way that seems to identify his philosophy with the Nazi cause:. The entry of America into this planetary war is not an entry into history. No, it is already the last American act of America's history-lessness and self-destruction. This act is the renunciation of the Origin. It is a decision for lack-of-Origin. Among Heidegger's students, Günther Anders saw in Heidegger's lectures a "reactionary potential", and Karl Löwith said that in Rome his master spoke enthusiastically of Hitler.
Walter Biemel, Heidegger's student in , testified in Heidegger was the only professor not to give any Nazi salutations prior to beginning his courses, even though it was administratory obligatory. Some conversations in those times could cost you your head.
I had many such conversations with Heidegger. There is absolutely no doubt he was a declared adversary of the regime. Siegfried Bröse, relieved of his functions as subprefect by the Nazis in , and subsequently one of Heidegger's teaching assistants, wrote to the de-Nazification hearing:. Heidegger's lectures were attended not only by students but also by people with long-standing professions and even by retired people, and every time I had the occasion to talk with these people, what came back incessantly was their admiration for the courage with which Heidegger, from the height of his philosophical position and in the rigor of his starting point, attacked National Socialism.
Equally, Hermine Rohner, a student from to , bears testimony to the fact Heidegger "wasn't afraid, as for him, even in front of students from all faculties so not only "his" students , to attack National Socialism so openly that I hunched up my shoulders. Due to what he calls Heidegger's "spiritual resistance", Czech resistance fighter and former Heidegger student Jan Patocka included him among his "heroes of our times". He was another of Heidegger's students, aided by Heidegger in in obtaining a fellowship to study in Rome, where he lived between and In an account set down in and not intended for publication, Löwith noted that Heidegger was wearing a swastika pin, even though he knew that Löwith was Jewish.
Löwith recounted their discussion about editorials published in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung: He left no doubt about his faith in Hitler; only two things that he had underestimated: Now, as before, he was convinced that National Socialism was the prescribed path for Germany.
Heidegger told me unreservedly that I was right and developed his idea by saying that his idea of historicity [ Geschichtlichkeit ] was the foundation for his political involvement. In response to my remark that I could understand many things about his attitude, with one exception, which was that he would permit himself to be seated at the same table with a figure such as Julius Streicher at the German Academy of Law , he was silent at first.
At last he uttered this well-known rationalisation which Karl Barth saw so clearly , which amounted to saying that "it all would have been much worse if some men of knowledge had not been involved.
He didn't understand it. For commentators such as Habermas who credit Löwith's account, there are a number of generally shared implications: During the hearings of the Denazification Committee, Hannah Arendt , Heidegger's former student and lover, who was Jewish, spoke on his behalf.
Arendt very cautiously resumed her friendship with Heidegger after the war, despite or even because of the widespread contempt for Heidegger and his political sympathies, and despite his being forbidden to teach for many years. In September , the Denazification Committee published its report on Heidegger. He was charged on four counts: In , he wrote to his friend Heinrich Petzet: Thomas Sheehan has noted "Heidegger's stunning silence concerning the Holocaust ," in contrast to his criticism of the alienation wrought by modern technologies: In a lecture entitled "Das Ge-stell" "Enframing" , he stated:.
Agriculture is now a motorized food-industry — in essence, the same as the manufacturing of corpses in gas chambers and extermination camps, the same as the blockading and starving of nations [the Berlin blockade was then active], the same as the manufacture of hydrogen bombs. Commentators differ on whether these statements are evidence of a profound disregard for the fate of the Jews or rather, a recontextualization of their suffering in terms of the mechanization of life and death.
Heidegger explained during his lecture: The same is no more only the indistinctive coincidence of the identical. The same is rather the relation of the different. Moreover, many of those who align themselves with Heidegger philosophically have pointed out that in his work on "being-towards-death" we can recognize a much more salient criticism of what was wrong with the mass-produced murder of a people.
Thinkers as diverse as Giorgio Agamben and Judith Butler have made this point sympathetically. Hundreds of thousands die en masse. They are done in. They become mere quanta, items in an inventory in the business of manufacturing corpses. They are liquidated inconspicuously in extermination camps. And even apart from that, right now millions of impoverished people are perishing from hunger in China. But to die is to endure death in its essence.
To be able to die means to be capable of this endurance. We are capable of this only if the essence of death makes our own essence possible. In other words, according to Heidegger, the victims of death camps were deprived not only of their life, but of the dignity of an authentic death, since they were "liquidated" as if they were inventory or problematic accounting, rather than killed in combat as one would kill an enemy.
Another citation levied against Heidegger by his critics, is his answer to a question by his former student Herbert Marcuse , concerning his silence about the Nazi racial policies. In a letter to Marcuse, he wrote:. I can add only that instead of the word "Jews" [in your letter] there should be the word " East Germans ", and then exactly the same [terror] holds true of one of the Allies , with the difference that everything that has happened since is public knowledge world-wide, whereas the bloody terror of the Nazis was in fact kept a secret from the German people.
The reference to East Germans concerns the expulsion of Germans after World War II from territories across eastern Europe, which displaced about 15 million and killed another 0. On September 23, , Heidegger was interviewed by Rudolf Augstein and Georg Wolff for Der Spiegel magazine, in which he agreed to discuss his political past provided that the interview be published posthumously it was published on May 31, In the interview, Heidegger defends his involvement with the Nazi party on two points: Second, he saw in the historic moment the possibility for an "awakening" Aufbruch which might help to find a "new national and social approach" to the problem of Germany's future, a kind of middle ground between capitalism and communism.
For example, when Heidegger talked about a "national and social approach" to political problems, he linked this to Friedrich Naumann. According to Thomas Sheehan, Naumann had the "vision of a strong nationalism and a militantly anticommunist socialism, combined under a charismatic leader who would fashion a middle-European empire that "preserved the spirit and tradition of pre-industrial Germany even as it appropriated, in moderation, the gains of modern technology.
After , Heidegger claims in the interview, he was more critical of the Nazi government, largely prompted by the violence of the Night of the Long Knives.
When the interviewers asked him about the lecture in which he had referred to the "inner truth and greatness of [the National Socialist] movement" i. Rather, he meant it as he expressed it in the parenthetical clarification added in , namely, as "the confrontation of planetary technology and modern humanity.
However, Karl Löwith's account of his meeting with Heidegger in discussed above has been cited to refute these contentions. According to Lowith, Heidegger did not make any decisive break with National Socialism in , and Heidegger was willing to entertain more profound relations between his philosophy and political involvement than he would subsequently admit.
The Der Spiegel interviewers were not in possession of most of the evidence for Heidegger's Nazi sympathies now known, and thus their questions did not press too strongly on those points.
In particular, the Der Spiegel interviewers did not bring up Heidegger's quotation comparing the industrialization of agriculture to the extermination camps. In , Heidegger met with the poet Paul Celan , a Jew who had survived concentration camps operated by the Nazis' Romanian allies. Heidegger there presented Celan with a copy of What is Called Thinking?
On July 25 Celan visited Heidegger at his retreat, signing the guestbook and spending some time walking and talking with Heidegger. The details of their conversation are not known, but the meeting was the subject of a subsequent poem by Celan, entitled "Todtnauberg" dated August 1, This means that every time you visit this website you will need to enable or disable cookies again.
