In Le Monde, Peter Tawny discusses
the black notebooks.
In the years 1930-1940, Heidegger strives to develop a kind of topography of the history of being. It thus focuses on two parallel issues: the relationship of Bolshevism with the Russians and that of national socialism with the Germans. Christianity, on the other hand, is the subject of a negative interpretation. It attempts to define the concept of Americanism, as it seeks to identify the meaning of English, French and Italian peoples.
That Judaism may also intervene in this context, it is not surprising. But the way in which it operates is determined by well-known anti-Semitic stereotypes, brought to a philosophical dimension: this is the real problem posed by these developments.
