An ambitious philosophical speculative work on the possible influence of Ludwig Wittgenstein on a very young Adolf Hitler I can honestly say that I have never read a book that attempts to do what The Jew of Linz attempts, which alone makes it worth reading Just expect the book to go all over the place with analysis of the philosophies of Nazi theorist Alfred Rosenberg, The Upanishads, Richard Wagner, Arthur Schopenhauer, Ludwig Wittgenstein the most analyzed, of course , etc Also expect a somewhat in depth look at the history of rich aristocratic Jews from Austria and Germany, Jews that Richard Wagner the mystical father of National Socialism hated with a passion Apparently many of these Jewish families who usually ended up converting to Catholicism were very anti Semitic in their views, including Ludwig Wittgenstein, who I must say has some of the best arguments against the Jews that I have ever read One could say, The Jew of Linz is a work of historical philosophical Philo Semitism. a sensationalist narrative held together by a carefully comprised sellection of circumstantial evidence I personally have no problem with that The problem I have is the topic of the holocaust being molded into a form that is in some aspects very problematic 1 great men history as a space created by the few and experienced passively by the many to say no hitler no holocaust as if it was caused only by hitler.2 a stench of teleology, especially in the conclusio. Witzige Idee, muss man zugeben Hitler und Wittgenstein kannten sich aus Realschultagen, und L hat A den Judenhass beigebnracht, weil beide eigentlich hnliche Interessen hatten, Musik, Architektur, Malerei Aber das Photo ist schon aussagekr ftig Absurd wird das Ganze, als Wittgenstein auch noch als sowjetischer Topagent enttarnt wird Obwohl auch hier wirklich merkw rdig, dass er einen Ruf nach Kasan erhalten hat. Simply astonishing is the history of Wittgenstein and Hitler With Wittgenstein having an annoying habit of correcting people and Hitler hating being corrected so much he once said that the composer was wrong when someone pulled him up about a mistake in his singing Whether Wittgenstein set Hitler on course to being a Jew hater is not proved by this book but it certainly is suggested in an almost eerily believable fashion. Offering The Theory That Hitler And Wittgenstein Were In The Same Class At School, This Book Proposes That The Latter Was The Specific Target Of Hitler S Bile In Mein Kampf, In Which He Describes A Jew At School, And That Hitler S Beliefs About Jews Came From The Experience Of Meeting Wittgenstein At This Time It Also Argues That Wittgenstein, A Secret Stalinist, Had His Revenge On Hitler By Recruiting Blunt, Philby And Other Spies At Cambridge, Who Undermined The German Cause By Passing Military Information To The Russians
