An evening inspired by the recent publication of Constantin Brunner's letters
Constantin Brunner (1862-1937) was a well-known German-Jewish philosopher who provoked controversy in German society. His expressionist and reformist doctrines attracted many intellectuals. Brunner corresponded with, among others, Gustav Landauer, Walter Rathenau and Martin Buber. The publication of his selected letters corresponds to the 75th anniversary of Brunner's death. The letters, some of which are preserved in the archives of the National Library, were edited by Jürgen Stenzel and Irene Aue-Ben-David.
The event at the National Library, organized in cooperation with the Rosenzweig Center, will focus on discussion of Brunner's letters and his attitude to anti-Semitism.
