Lecture: National Socialism in Philosophy: Being, History, Technology and Extermination in Heidegger's Work


Location: Eck Visitors' Center Auditorium

Emmanuel Faye, Associate Professor at the University Paris Ouest–Nanterre La Défense

In the most comprehensive examination to date of Heidegger’s Nazism, Emmanuel Faye draws on previously unavailable materials to paint a damning picture of Nazism’s influence on the philosopher’s thought and politics. This lecture at Notre Dame will be the first time Faye speaks on the subject of his book in the United States since it appeared in English.

Lecture at 4:00 pm with reception to follow.

Copies of Emmanuel Faye’s book, Heidegger: The Introduction of Nazism Into Philosophy will be available for purchase.
