Reading Heidegger's Black Notebooks 1931-1941

The Black Notebooks are not a philosophical treatise, but rather a collection of opinion-pieces or "blogs" commenting on a great variety of topics. The philosopher of Dasein, seen as "being-in-the-world", reflects here on the "world" he found himself in, a very confusing and turbulent world, and on his own evolving attitudes toward that world. Some of the "blogs" are very revealing and stimulating, while others are a bit dated and of questionable relevance today. Basically the entries are a logbook of Heidegger’s difficult journey during these years.

Keywords:   transition (Übergang), liberalism, nationalism, communism, “barbaric principle”, “animalization of folk”
