Stefan Lorenz Sorgner, Menschenwürde nach Nietzsche: Die Geschichte eines Begriffes (English)


Stefan Sorgner

January 04, 2013

By Prof. Dr. Greg Whitlock on Dr. Stefan Lorenz Sorgner.

In his Menschenwürde nach Nietzsche: Die Geschichte eines Begriffes (Human Dignity according to/after Nietzsche: The History of a Concept), Sorgner conceived a bold plan and executed it remarkably well with noteworthy results. His plan entailed presenting four paradigmatic notions of human dignity; next, presenting Nietzsche’s critical evaluation of the notion of human dignity in relation to the four paradigms; and finally, reflecting on Nietzsche’s criticism in a way that embraced much of it and, consequently, largely rejected the humanist notion of the dignity of man. Sorgner took the additional steps of arguing for a posthumanism to replace the outmoded humanist notion of human dignity, as he had developed it. Each phase of the plan was carried out with care in every detail.

“Nietzsche, still an intellectual author of Nazism to many in Germany and elsewhere”

‘Nietzsche Contra Wagner’ is evidence otherwise. Nietzsche was no more or less an author of Nazism than the Paris Commune was an
author of Communism or the Oneida Community was an
author of the American counterculture.

Nietzsche got a bad rap for being a Nazi inspiration, when he was no more culpable for what Himmler did than Marx was for Beria’s actions.
Esp. since Nietzsche deliberately refuted Wagner—he must have seen the writing on the wall with the volkisch, who were burgeoning at that time: the 1880s.

BTW,
notes on the early volkisch movement:

“1) Early Volkisch movement (1880s – 1890s)
a. Emerging as a racialist program – Jews linked to liberal capitalism on Right and Marxism on the Left
i. Type A – Religious basis of anti-semitism
ii. Type B – Social/Economic anti-semitism
iii. Type C – Racial – product of imperialism (19th century)
iv. Nazism is a blend primarily of Type B and C
b. Political mixed in with the social
c. Politics too liberal – felt that the German “little man” is being left out
i. Therefore, a 3rd way needs to be formed
d. Liberalism and Marxism are the same side of the coin
i. Both are inherently materialist
ii. Class conflict is driven by or results from these
e. 1893 – German Conservative Party develops an anti-semitic party platform
i. Tivoli Program – reduce Jews’ power, converting would be preferred
ii. Nobody jumped on board at eh this time
iii. By 1912, anti-semitic party platforms disappeared…”

Reappeared after defeat of 1918.
