“Only A God Can Save Us” Screening and Panel Discussion

Thursday, February 24th, 2011
Martin Heidegger is considered by many to be the most profound thinker of the 20th century, and his philosophy continues to be influential.
.
In May of 1933, Heidegger joined the Nazi Party and became the first Nazi Rector of a German university.
.
Heidegger’s final words of despair in a famous Der Spiegel interview make it clear that he had no faith in democracy: “Only a God can save us.”
.
The film Only A God Can Save Us is a critical view of Heidegger’s so-called “flirtation” with Nazism and examines the elements of his philosophy which may have led him to support the National Socialist revolution.
.
Come watch highlights from the two-hour documentary film about this controversial philosopher and stay for a discussion panel featuring Jeffrey Van Davis, the film’s director, and Rockford University faculty members Stephen Hicks (Philosophy), David Sytsma (History), and Jules Gleicher (Political Science).
