World Economic Forum on Ernst Cassirer and Martin Heidegger at Davos.
Heidegger thought modern life was rubbish. He saw technology and rationality as soulless and dehumanizing. His philosophy placed human beings in the middle of blood, soil, and action. But his anti-intellectualism and nationalist mythology also made philosophy redundant. A world peopled by Heidegger’s heroes would have little time for thinking and place little value in it.
