HANS BLUMENBERG ARBEIT AM MYTHOS PDF

The Little Corporal preoccupied Blumenberg more and more, causing him to think less about Hitler. Prefiguration is a form of thought from the world of myth, but it is still or again virulent. As Althusser noted, prophecies can have causal effects. Prefiguration, which shares a frontier with magical thinking, involves the foretelling or expectation of present and future effects of narratives written down sometimes thousands of years before.

The Little Corporal preoccupied Blumenberg more and more, causing him to think less about Hitler. Prefiguration is a form of thought from the world of myth, but it is still or again virulent. As Althusser noted, prophecies can have causal effects. Prefiguration, which shares a frontier with magical thinking, involves the foretelling or expectation of present and future effects of narratives written down sometimes thousands of years before.

Prefiguration is about the constancy of conditions or, rather, the wish for constancy. Prefiguration overcomes confusion, helplessness; in extreme circumstances, it can lend historic decisions legitimacy. One salient example is from the Yom Kippur War, when Arabs chose the date to attack based on a key moment in Islamic history. But the audience for prefiguration must be able to recognize what expectation is being fulfilled. As Blumenberg puts it, prefiguration exists in a system designed for justification and, if exercised properly, can function in a Janus-faced manner, meaning that it is a form of thought that can insulate itself against failure.

A prophecy can possess built-in protective qualities. If ancient Rome becomes the paradigm for a proposed military action and the army involved fails, the prophet or propagandist, as justification for mounting further battles, might then invoke the Punic wars as indeed Goebbels did. When, as circumstances worsened, Hitler was destroying everything in sight, he preserved the Frederick portrait by making sure it was in the hands of Hans Baur, whom he expected to leave the bunker alive.

Whatever else happened, Frederick had to live on. Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.

Hans Blumenberg

He studied philosophy , German studies and the classics —47, interrupted by World War II and is considered to be one of the most important German philosophers of the century. Blumenberg created what has come to be called 'metaphorology', which states that what lies under metaphors and language modisms, is the nearest to the truth and the farthest from ideologies. Digging under apparently meaningless anecdotes of the history of occidental thought and literature, Blumenberg drew a map of the expressions, examples, gestures, that flourished in the discussions of what are thought to be more important matters. Blumenberg's interpretations are extremely unpredictable and personal, all full of signs, indications and suggestions, sometimes ironic.
