Intellectuals and national socialism : the cases of Jung, Heidegger, and Fischer / by Richard M. Stewart

Publication | Library Call Number: BF109.J8 S74 1995

This thesis discusses three intellectuals, each from a distinct academic background, and their relationship with National Socialism. Persons covered are Carl Gustav Jung, Martin Heidegger, and Eugen Fischer. This thesis aims at discovering something common and fundamental about the intellectuals' relationship to politics as such. Major sources include the writings, scholastic and apologetic, of the three principals. Following a brief introduction, each person is discussed in a separate chapter. The relationship each had with National Socialism is evaluated with an eye to their distinct academic backgrounds. The conclusion of this thesis is that intellectuals succumb all too easily to political and cultural extremism; none of these three scholars saw themselves as National Socialists, yet each through his anti-Semitism and willingness to cooperate assisted the regime.
