Abstract

122 Heidegger and Werner Jaeger on the Eve of 1933: A Possible Rapprochement? FRANK H. W. EDLER Metropolitan Community College (Omaha) For Reiner Schürmann, in memoriam Martin Heidegger and Werner Jaeger are not usually mentioned to- gether in the same breath either as scholarly allies or antagonists- least of all as political bedfellows. Scant attention, if any, has been paid to the possibility of an intellectual and even political rapproche- ment between these two men on the eve of 1933. The general impres- sion to date seems to be that they maintained a collegial relationship in the latter twenties and early thirties which remained within the pro- fessional bounds of exchanging publications and opinions. However, a letter written by Heidegger to Jaeger (text and translation below) dated 12 December 1932 may well change that. In 1932, both Jaeger and Heidegger were at the top of their respective fields: Jaeger in 1921 had filled the prestigious chair of classical studies at the University of Berlin vacated by Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff.l By 1932, Jaeger certainly was considered Germany's leading classical scholar. Heidegger after publishing the bombshell of Being and Time (1927) during his stay at Marburg returned to the University
