Abstract

Princess Marie Adelheid of Lippe-Biesterfeld was a rebellious young writer who became a fervent Nazi. Heinrich Vogeler was a well-regarded artist who was to join the German Communist Party. Ludwig Roselius was a successful businessman who had made a fortune from his invention of decaffeinated coffee. What was it about the revolutionary climate following World War I that induced three such different personalities to collaborate in the production of a slim volume of poetry—entitled Gott in Mir—about the indwelling of the divine within the human?Gossman's study situates the poem in the ideological context that made the collaboration possible: pantheism, Darwinism, disillusionment with traditional liberal values, theosophy and völkisch religions, and Lebensreform. The study outlines the subsequent life of the Princess who, until her death in 1993, continued to support and celebrate the ideals and heroes of National Socialism. Brownshirt Princess provides deep insight into the sources and character of the "Nazi Conscience", and is invaluable reading for anybody interested in understanding German society during the inter-war and Nazi periods.

Abstract

Filme über den Holocaust führen nach wie vor zu kontroversen Diskussionen, insbesondere über die Art ihres Umgangs mit der Shoah. Abgesehen von wenigen Ausnahmen besteht die filmwissenschaftliche Literatur zum Thema Holocaust im Film jedoch aus Beiträgen zu einzelnen Filmen ohne übergreifende Fragestellung. Schwerpunkt dieser Studie ist daher eine Typologie, welche die Wirkung dieser Filme auf den Zuschauer analysiert - unter Berücksichtigung der besonderen Ästhetik und der damit einhergehenden spezifischen Wahrnehmungsangebote. Die analysierten Filme - darunter u.a. »Nacht und Nebel«, »Schindlers Liste«, »Das Leben ist schön«, »Zug des Lebens« und »Birkenau und Rosenfeld« - stellen gleichzeitig einen Aufriss der filmischen Auseinandersetzung mit der Shoah seit 1945 dar.

Abstract

Marx und Nietzsche sind die exponierten Gestalten der nachidealistischen Philosophie, deren gemeinsame Substanz das Bewusstsein der Krise von Geist und Gesellschaft ist. Vor dem Hintergrund einer ausführlichen ideengeschichtlichen Rekonstruktion der Genesis des Denkens von Marx und Nietzsche eruiert dieses Buch systematisch die jeweiligen Theoriekerne und bringt sie dialektisch miteinander ins Spiel: Marx' Kritik der Verkehrung der Freiheit trifft auf Nietzsches tragische Aufklärung - eine notwendige Begegnung für die Möglichkeit einer aktuellen politischen Theorie der universellen und reflexiven Emanzipation des Nichtidentischen.
