Left-Wing Nietzscheans: The Politics of German by Seth Taylor

By Seth Taylor

Nietzsche the elitist individualist, or Nietzsche the social critic? Nietzsche the common existentialist, or Nietzsche the militant nationalist? "Become what you are," or "the will to power"? those are a few of the questions on the subject of the impact of the "un-timely" German philosopher and poet upon a few of the ideological routine of the 20 th century, starting from fascism at the correct to anarchist socialism at the left. whereas at the political aspects (both correct and left) the claims and disclaims to Nietzsche have usually resulted from distorted variants and quotations taken out of the context of his works, the highbrow fans of Nietzsche usually observed it essential to abandon their "teacher" within the face of the realities of the twentieth-century political and social advancements. No different workforce of intellectuals (with another way no universal denominator yet that in their insurrection opposed to the political and cultural conservatism in their time) may perhaps relate so together to 1 non secular ancestor because the German Expressionists did to Friedrich Nietzsche. for that reason, whilst first and foremost of the well-known Expressionism debate of the Nineteen Thirties Gyorgy Lukacs made the declare that Expressionism were a foreplay to nationwide socialism, it truly looked as if it would provide credence to the label of pioneer of German nationalism formerly bestowed upon Nietzsche by way of the representatives of the "conservative revolution." In view of the commonly contested assertion by way of Lukacs, Nietzsche's impact upon the Expressionists has deserved a better glance with a view to make certain his and their precise positions in the course of the sharp flip to the precise of German politics and public sentiments in the course of the moment decade of the 20 th century. the sort of glance has now been undertaken, and its findings represent the topic of the current book.

Following a summarizing evaluation of the costs opposed to Nietzsche and the Expressionists as forerunners of German fascism, Taylor provides a scientific research of significant Expressionists' (including additionally Dadaists') knowing of Nietzsche's philosophy. because the rigidity this is evidently on philosophical connections and affects, the names we come upon will not be these of the extra renowned writers of Expressionist poems and dramas, akin to Heym, Stramm, Toller, or Kaiser, yet these of the theoretical exponents and practitioners of the Expressionist, in addition to Dadaist, events, notably: Kurt Hiller, Otto Gross, Salomo Friedlander, Anselm Ruest, Hugo Ball, and Richard Huelsenbeck. hence either the extra political department of Expressionism (Hiller, Gross, and the Berlin Dadaists) and its apolitical facet (Friedlander and Ruest) are noticeable of their relationships to Nietzsche, in addition to Expressionism's debt to different German thinkers, both without delay or through Nietzsche, e.g. Sigmund Freud (in the case of Gross), Immanuel Kant (in the case of Friedlander), or Max Stirner (in the case of Anselm Ruest). As Taylor is ready to show convincingly, the tip of Expressionism in Germany coincided with the tip of the left-wing Nietzsche trend, therefore leaving purely the representatives of German nationalism and militarism - who, besides the fact that, distanced themselves from Expressionism - to make their carrying on with claims upon Nietzsche. yet seeing that in addition they claimed to be the one actual heirs of that German tradition which had constantly been the thing of Nietzche's assaults, they ignored the essence of this pondering. mockingly reasons why the Expressionists and particularly the Dadaists deserted Nietzsche was once precisely that they, too, thought of him too heavily tied to the German cultural culture. The politics of global conflict I and of the failed postwar revolution triggered the Expressionists to take a stand at the query in their changing into politically lively or chickening out into entire highbrow isolation. even if the trap to both of those positions might be noticeable in Nietzsche's works, neither the Expressionists nor the thinker himself used to be in a position to harmonize the 2 polarities of his considering, and either Lukacs's and the Nazis' assaults opposed to the Expressionists have been unwarranted.

It is a pity publication containing rather a lot stable information regarding a major interval of German highbrow background is marred by means of such a lot of flaws. whereas a few of them are easily the results of unsatisfactory proofreading many typographical blunders, but in addition carelessness with names, reminiscent of Giinter, rather than Gunter, Martens (61), Hoffmannsthal rather than Hofmannsthal (39), and inconsistent capitalization of "Dionysian" - others appear to replicate the author's all too restricted wisdom of German. The latter turns into obvious in his retention of the German notice Geist in his English translations with either summary ("spirit of a movement") and urban ("mind") meanings, yet with inconsistent utilization of the plural shape (cf. sixty eight, seventy nine, eighty three, 222), or in such words as "the Das discussion board" and "the Die WeiBen Buecher Verlag." additionally Taylor's use of either Burger and "bourgeois" within the English textual content turns out to signify much less a contrast in which means than an inconsistent utilization of the 2 phrases. contemplating the limitation that any translator faces with overseas phrases by no means having the very same which means in one other language, would it be extra precious to the reader to provide an explanation for a notice in translation after which use it constantly, instead of to intersperse the English translation with such German phrases as Geist, geistig, Burger, buergerlich, der Einzige, etc.? If the writer of a booklet on German Expressionism doesn't imagine that his readers will comprehend his quotations in German, he also needs to no longer anticipate their greater figuring out if he leaves very important keywords untranslated.
