Product Description

In the 1930s and 40s, {$Martin Heidegger} was arguably the world's most important and influential philosopher having won global recognition with this celebrated {-Being and Time} in 1927. {$Heidegger} was also wildly controversial having embraced Nazism in 1933, though he often clashed with the party's leadership. In 1942, {$Heidegger} delivered a series of lectures in which he analyzed at length the poem {-The Ister}, an ode to the Danube River written in the late 18th century by the German author {$Friedrich Holderlin}. Rather than a simple celebration of verse, {$Heidegger}'s talks used {-The Ister} as a jumping-off point for discussions of technology, cultural identity, political change, and the war which then gripped both Germany and the world. Authors, filmmakers, and {$David Barison} and {$Daniel Ross} examine {$Heidegger}'s work and his take on {$Holderlin}'s poetry as they travel the length of the Danube with cameras in this {documentary}. {#The Ister} explores how many of {$Heidegger}'s notions have retained currency as the filmmakers interview {$Jean-Luc Nancy}, {$Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe}, {$Bernard Stiegler}, and {$Hans-Jürgen Syberberg}. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
