HANNAH ARENDT, RACISTE D'EXTRÊME-DROITE
[THREAD]
#EnFinirAvecArendt 1
La + intouchable des « philosophes ». Citée par tout l'échiquier politique comme un argument d'autorité. Parce que femme ? Parce que juive ? Parce qu'Allemande ? – Qu'importe. Il est temps d'en finir...

#EnFinirAvecArendt 2
Arendt est connue pour son travail sur le « totalitarisme » et ses jolis slogans, dont « la banalité du mal », ânonné en cours de philo comme une vérité sûre. Elle ne fait que reprendre la plaidoirie malhonnête d'Eichmann à son compte.

Ce bobard immonde vise à lustrer l’ancien amant et professeur d’Arendt : #Heidegger, lequel lui confessa son #antisémitisme « universitaire » dès l’hiver 1932, soit peu avant son adhésion publique au mvt nazi.

My first encounter with the #Persian #Wittgenstein (1889-1951) in Iran was buying a copy of a translation of #PhilosophicalInvestigations at the Tehran book fair in 1999 - a thread on Wittgenstein in Iran 1/
This translation by Ferydoun Fatemi (d. 2008), a well-known translator of philosophical works with Nashr-e markaz seems to be based on the English 2/
Standard accounts of Wittgenstein do not tend to look at his reception beyond the English speaking context - but for that there are two two excellent introductions which partly problematise the 'early' vs 'late' and SEP entry plato.stanford.edu/entries/wittge… 3/

#Corbin was one of a group of young #Protestant intellectuals in #Paris who discovered the work of #KarlBarth (1886-1968) the Swiss reformed theologian whom he met in Bonn in 1931 1/
Barth was known for his dialectical theology starting with his Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans (#DerRömerbrief) published in 1919; in 1934 he openly opposed Nazi authority insisting upon the absolute sovereignty of the divine and returned to Switzerland 2/
‘Faith is awe in the presence of the divine incognito; it is the love of God that is aware of the qualitative difference between God and man and God and the world’ 3/

Most specialists of #Islamic #intellectual_history know about the connection between the philosopher and Orientalist specialist of philosophy in #Iran Henry Corbin (1903-1978) and the German philosopher #MartinHeidegger (1889-1973) - a short thread 1/
Corbin first met #Heidegger in #Freiburg in 1934 and took on the translation of Was ist Metaphysik? as well as some other works and entered into a correspondence and meetings on the work 2/
This was published in 1938 by #Gallimard in #Paris and reviewed in Revue neoscolastique 3/

The Egyptian philosopher ʿAbd al-Rahman al-Badawi (1917-2002) is perhaps one of the most underrated thinkers of #ContemporaryArabThought - a major #Heideggerian_existentialist #Sufism and #IslamicPhilosophy specialist who studied at Fuad I (later #Cairo) University 1/
Many of us who study #IslamicThought know him for his editions of #ArabicAristotle #ArabicPlato #ArabicPlotinus as well as editions of the work of #Avicenna #IbnSabin #SiwanalHikma and others - without his efforts we would not have editions of the #PlotinianaArabica 2/
In the 1930s he studied in Cairo and obtained his PhD in 1944 supervised by #AlexandreKoyré (1892-1964) on the notion of 'existential time' that engages with #Heidegger - this like his other early works was published by #DaralNahdaalMisriya 3/

This year: 200th #anniversary of the #publication of #Goethe's great work of #art "#WestöstlicherDivan".#Heisenberg memorized #love-#poems from the book while working on #QuantumMechanics in #Heligoland.
#Schubert it to #music:
The #poem sung by #ElisabethSchwarzkopf is on p. 166 of the 1819 edition and reproduced below, side-by-side with the 1914 translation by #Irish critic and #poet Edward Dowden (1843-1913).The translation is close, but NOT accurate (as Dowden tries to recreate rhyme and rhythm).

Remark. The unclear phrase 'zu jemandes Herzen sprechen' was
allegedly utilized by #Heidegger in at least one letter sent to
#HannahArendt in 1925: cf. lisa.gerda-henkel-stiftung.de/ich_muss_heute….
