Interested in the dynamics of what he called limit-situations both because of his professional formation as a medical psychologist or psychiatrist and also because of his own personal experience of life, profoundly affected as he could not but be by his direct experience of the violence of two world wars, Jaspers interpreted such limit-encounters differently from either Husserl's conception of horizon or Heidegger's elusively nihilist reception of the language of limit-situations, or indeed life-situations in general. This is in part the reason that Arendt would never permit her interlocutors to characterize her as a philosopher: she would, she felt, be diminished by such a characterization in the public sphere within which she fully intended to be effective. While the first thirteen years of their acquaintance were marked by a collegial exchange of views on philosophical issues of mutual interest, their relationship changed significantly when the National Socialists came to power in In making this leap, individuals confront their own limitless freedom, which Jaspers calls Existenz, and can finally experience authentic existence. That the friendship survived had everything to do with Jaspers' extraordinary intellectual openness which in Jaspers' case is also another word for scientific, that is philosophical probity. Heidegger continued to teach at the fascist-controlled Freiburg University, and even joined the Nazi Party.
All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned. It will in no way be denied that at the time I believed in such possibilities and for that reason renounced the actual vocation of thinking in favor of being effective in an official capacity. He finally offered his resignation on April 23,and it was accepted on April Heidegger and Jaspers. Attitude towards his mentor Husserl[ edit ] Beginning inthe philosopher Edmund Husserl championed Heidegger's work, and helped him secure the retiring Husserl's chair in Philosophy at the University of Freiburg.
Clough Stanford: Stanford University Press, Thus we note that Jaspers himself offers an insightful early reading of Nietzsche's conception of "great politics," 15 in a chapter that begins, moreover, with what I read as a specific appeal to Heidegger, as Jaspers writes: "Nietzsche's longing for authentic man leads him to despair of any specific form in which man is actualized" NPA Danger comes not from work for the State. The American philosopher Richard Rorty declared that "Farias' book includes more concrete information relevant to Heidegger's relations with the Nazis than anything else available",  while French philosopher Roger-Pol Droit commented: "Mercilessly well-informed, this book is a bomb".

In the s, Jaspers spoke of his "philosophy of reason" and his debt to Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Weber, and others. The essay closes by recalling Arendt's reflections on the very possibility of resistance using the example of Jaspers' own resistance to contemporary political events.
Thinkers as diverse as Giorgio Agamben and Judith Butler have made this point sympathetically. He felt he was a part of the revolutionary movement, and it was his intention to keep opportunists away from the revolutionary awakening.
Is what we are doing here political, meeting as we are to discuss Jaspers in a session on the manifestly political thematic of cross-cultural hermeneutics and the yet more political, if also deeply philosophical notion, of world philosophy? It seems like magic when the results of measurements taken in our world confirm the reality of the conceptions of this curious mathematics.
This goal demands three things: 1. This letter expressed his consent to the "hard new law, rational from Germans' point of view", which excluded Jews from university teaching, including Gerhart Husserl, son of the illustrious philosopher of the same name, who as a Jew was stripped of his civil law chair at the university, despite being a wounded veteran of the first world war.
But is this so surprising? What has been made will henceforth be given and what is given has the unpredictable modifiability of new productive material" P1 But he and his wife were under constant threat of removal to a concentration camp until 30 Marchwhen Heidelberg was liberated by American troops.
Now there had been a break, painful to Jaspers and arguably so for Heidegger as well, though Heidegger by any standard was less of what we in New York call a Mensch than Jaspers, and it seems plain to me that Heidegger's greatest anxiety or concern, at all times, was for himself and this perforce limited the kinds of things that caused him grief.
By contrast, Jaspers, whose wife was Jewish, was forced into retirement. Thus Jaspers writes, very disarmingly, "It is odd how often I have been called anti-scientific, or indeed contemptuous of science" P1 13, But it is one of the oldest expressions of rectitude or human justice.
For Jaspers, always Kantian, the world is a question, especially when one poses the question of the beginning of the world. As Jaspers emphasizes, this same rigorous emphasis on the common method unifying the sciences led for Nietzsche, as for Heinrich Rickert and Heidegger, to an insight into the formal limits of science as such.
Despite this I think it also patent that Heidegger valued his friendship with Jaspers both before and after the war and something of the complex level of communication between the two men due, and I return to this at the conclusion, to Jaspers' particular gift for philosophical reflection and communication can be gleaned from reading their correspondence.
The project of speaking truth to power has neither efficiency nor the prospect of sure success to recommend it. And again, this attitude is far from surprising to the Heidegger scholar: the 2 October letter in which the philosopher emphasises the need to oppose "growing Judaisation within German spiritual life", reinforcing this by rooting it in authentically German forces, is already well-known.Heidegger also states in the book that in Metaphysics, life or existence can only be understood by understanding existence or inexistence.
According to Popper, whether one studies being or inexistence or where to find inexistence, we know that inexistence is due to fear because inexistence reveals fear.
