The rule of law breaks its central promise
The promise is that all people are equal before the law. But they are not the same. The law in this country favors those who are wealthy; it disadvantages those who have nothing. Economic crimes running into the millions are given minimal penalties or are discontinued. Trials against people who steal a vodka end up hard and harder and harder.
In an exciting report, Ronen Steinke exposes systematic injustice. He visits prisons, researches prosecutors, judges, lawyers and convicts. And he makes urgent demands on what needs to change.

When trivializing becomes a deadly danger
In Germany we have got used to conditions that we should never get used to: Jewish schools have to be guarded by armed men, Jewish worship takes place under police protection, threats are increasing. The state has allowed this to happen - through a police force that only manages this danger in many places; through a judiciary that is glossed over again and again.
The Jewish author Ronen Steinke, himself a lawyer, has traveled through Germany and tells of Jewish life that is increasingly retreating behind walls. He meets rabbis and police officers, confronts state security officers, secret service agents and ministers with the state's failure. A lot has to change in Germany. This book explains what needs to be done.

The stroke of luck of an excitingly written political biography.
(Darmstadt Echo)

Fritz Bauer forced the Germans to look: in the midst of a judiciary that in the young Federal Republic was still characterized by brown ropes, he pushed through the great Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial. He cooperated with the Israeli secret service to bring Adolf Eichmann to justice. Ronen Steinke tells the life of a great lawyer and humanist, whose personal story became a political issue.

A story that gives you courage in times of hatred
As a Jewish teenager, Anna Boros survived the Holocaust in the middle of Hitler's capital - thanks to a brave Arab. It was an Egyptian doctor named Mohammed Helmy, and he did a great job of tricking the Gestapo. He is the only Arab to have been honored by Yad Vashem for this.
Ronen Steinke tells this breathtaking story - and sheds light on an almost forgotten world: the Arab Berlin of the Weimar period, which was educated, progressive and in large parts anything but anti-Semitic.
"Seldom have the Nazis been duped so often and downright cinematic - and rarely are you so tempted to clap your hands liberally at the end of a serious book." DIE ZEIT

Like his long-time friend Hannah Arendt, it was also clear to Hans Jonas that ethics as a doctrine of virtues did not produce sustainable responsibility. The search for the intrinsic sources of responsibility that extends beyond one's own lifespan and environment has never been undertaken as with this book. The abundance of thoughts and suggestions from Jonas on this topic, which is still open for our time, are made understandable in a special way through the reading by Axel Grube.

The introduction to philosophy (1950) was the first and happiest attempt in it (…) 'The twelve radio lectures: 1. What is philosophy? 2. Origins of philosophy 3. The encompassing 4.

peace celebration
An action by Jonas Hafner with Joseph Beuys

€ 12 / May 2022

On March 31, 1972 (Good Friday), Jonas Hafner, together with Joseph Beuys, carried out an action at the Minster Church on Mönchengladbach's Abteiberg that is still remarkable today in many respects. It had the title of Hölderlin's poem "Peace Celebration", a title that was also at that time - especially under the impression of the Vietnam War - in a conscious tension with external reality. The action of the Beuys student Hafner has so far only been dealt with in the literature about Beuys and there also rather casually. Marco A. Sorace presents here for the first time a detailed review. He pays particular attention to the intellectual background of the former Dominican monk and later Hamburg art professor, whom the philosopher Walter Warnach, who teaches at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, welcomed in 1968 with the words: "Finally a philosophically trained mind at the academy!"

"It has to go" called the sister, "that's the only way, father. All you have to do is try to get rid of the thought that it is Gregor." (out: Die Verwandlung)

Two metamorphoses are described in this humorous, terrifying story by Franz Kafka: Gregor Samsas and that of Grete Samsa, the sister who ceases to see in her brother a person who only wants to see the monster that stands in the way of life:
Kafka described the nature of this time with an incredibly sharp perspective. While it seemed to some of his contemporaries that his texts were dream visions, poetic exaggerations and fantastic halucinations, today we note with astonishment the accuracy and sobriety of these descriptions. (...)
Grete Samsa embodies the unshakable (conscience) calm of modern times, which cannot be upset and which goes towards its goal - over corpses. (Karel Kosik)

Mysticism and rationality are the poles of our time (Robert Musil) 
If I hadn't read Robert Musil's sentence "Rationality and mysticism are the poles of our time", I might not have gotten to the topic, (...) he did not propose any alternative - either rationality or mysticism - he put both of them on an equal footing, as complementary forces, just as two poles that hold and complement each other.

Felix Weltsch, his closest friend Kafka in appearance and humor very similar,
... wrote this book in the 50s.
In memory of the personality of his deceased friend, but also in the aftermath of almost twenty years of conversation among friends, he seeks - like Max Brod mostly based on Kafka's Zurich notes - the basic timbre that the life and work to describe inseparable sentient thinking of Kafka.
In the almost antagonistic complement of humor and religion to our ears, something appears here that - like the testimony of Kafka's closest life companion - has for a long time been almost completely in the background.

Janouch's book [is] to be regarded as a valuable biographical source.
There is probably no question that the published conversations are based on conversations that actually took place, even if their formulation was presumably more resolute in the subsequent stylization than Kafka may have originally given it. Nevertheless, Janouch's book is to be regarded as a valuable biographical source. (Felix Weltsch)

“If we follow the movement in Nietzsche's thoughts, if we don't stop at any position that we like, we get caught up with him every time: The contradictions do not allow us to calm down because they are precisely what makes them the truth announces itself, which as such is nowhere even there. "  (Karl Jaspers)

How should I not be grateful to my life? And so I tell myself about my life.
In this late work Nietzsche gives a description of the important 'traits of his nature' in close conjunction with his writings. He thus fulfills (initially from his own point of view) his requirement, the thinking of a philosopher essentially also from his own Condition to understand - and he wishes for himself the disrespect of his 'late' readers: the undisguised view of his own 'ideals', attitudes and mental poses: And why don't you want to pluck my wreath?
The style, especially Ecce homo, is rightly considered a measure of the German language. What do you care about the grotesque self-apotheosis and exaggerated aristocratic gestures - you need a good sense of humor for this book:

Hear me! Because I am this and that! Above all, do not confuse me!

That I ... began to fabulous about the German essence (...) today it is an impossible book for me,

so Nietzsche in his Attempt at self-criticism, he says Birth of Tragedy 14 years later added preface from the year 1886. And indeed this book contains difficult-to-bear sections, which read as an homage to the great anti-Romanists and anti-Semites Martin Luther and Richard Wagner, like a reference to the later collapse of humanity in Germany.
But soon after the book was published, Nietzsche had become the sharpest critic of this atmosphere and of any national mentality in general. And so today we can turn our attention without reservation and with great profit to the telling questions of this book.

What is understandable about language is not the word itself, but the tone, strength, modulation, tempo with which a number of words are spoken, in short, the music behind the words, the passion behind this music, the person behind this passion: everything so that which cannot be written.
