Peter Trawny on the limits of Hegel.
But if we suggest that Hegel‘s career was a model for Heidegger,
we have to admit that Heidegger refused to go to Berlin
and Munich in 1930 and 1933. Of course, he would have found
there better opportunities to win political influence. Obviously,
he balanced the situation quite intensely. With respect to Munich,
he speculates in a letter to Elisabeth Blochmann from
autumn 1933 about the possibility “of approaching Hitler and
so on” – typically misinterpreting his standing. Different from
Hegel, Heidegger was never the philosopher of a “capital.” But
all this happened before he gave up his position as rector of the
university in Freiburg. In winter 1934/35, the semester of the
Hegel-seminar, Heidegger did not have any means to obtain
political influence. The fictional identification of Heidegger
with Hegel insinuated by Faye might be an error.
