Myśleć historię: wątki heglowskie w Józefie i jego braciach Thomasa Manna
MetadataShow full item record
The article discusses relations between Thomas Mann’s Joseph and his brothers and Hegelian conception of history and time. These two names are rather rarely linked together; in spite of Susan von Rohr Scaff’s works, the issue remains unexplored. I point out the similarities between Mann’s and Hegel’s understanding of eternity, the end of history and Absolute. Comparising their writings, I also refer to their cultural and historical background, suggesting that their common experience of modernity affects the tendency to synthesis that joins them.
