Peter Trawny's Heidegger and the Myth of a Jewish World Conspiracy
, translated by Andrew J. Mitchell.
[E]ven if Heidegger's anti-Semitism does just turn out to be the conventional prejudice already well known both to historians and to the culture at large, one can still ask exactly where and how it figures into Heidegger's thinking. Does the account of the history of being either entail or require an anti-Semitic element? Did Heidegger's anti-Semitism shape and guide his account of the history of being? Does it discredit that account, wholly or in part? If in part, which parts? Regrettably, Trawny's argument never quite rises to that level of specificity.
