Example text

The Nazis indeed launched virtual time travel missions into the past (as in the film Jud Süss, in which the Frankfurt school’s dialectical hold on the Enlightenment is pulled out by these routes) to alter it in such a way that passage to the present would have to change its booking too, and thus the immediate past or present of an established precursor or alternative tradition would stand or fall corrected, circumvented, even vaporized. But time traveling is only as effective as the next guy’s denial of the Oedi-pedagogical imperative of one-way transmissions.

Even though psychologists borrowed from psychoanalysis in open or tentative fashion, the lack of critical assessment of, and interaction with, Freud’s science at the same time does not register the kind of reception that would indicate influence (Geuter, 27).

Syberberg (without whose Hitler, a Film from Germany the analysis that we attempt here would not have been possible) has so admirably shown, is also the construction, the formation, and the production of the German people in, through, and as a work of art.
