About

This volume brings together the largely unpublished essays and commentaries on Jünger from the philosopher’s estate – complete with a short editorial commentary.

In the history of 20th century ideas there is hardly a more surprising conceivable constellation than that between Hans Blumenberg and Ernst Jünger. Ernst Jünger, the "Man from the Moon " numbers amongst those contemporary authors who polarize and give cause for fierce controversy. Ernst Jünger’s works are pamphlets oscillating between national Bolshevism and Postmodernism. What is largely unknown is that Hans Blumenberg has not only concerned himself intensely with literature but since the post-War era also devoted numerous brilliant essays to Ernst Jünger’s work. With absolute admiration for Jünger’s stylistic precision, yet with equally relentless (albeit neither denunciatory nor apologetic) criticism of Jünger’s political and theoretical attitudes but also their literary realization they address themselves to the »figure of the century« Ernst Jünger.
