9781593118563: Hitler's Ideology: Embodied Metaphor, Fantasy, and History (PB)

(Originally published as: Hitler's Ideology: A Study in Psychoanalytic Sociology) Why did Hitler initiate the Final Solution and take Germany to war? Based on analysis of Hitler's rhetoric-the words, images and metaphors contained within his writing and speeches-Koenigsberg's study reveals the “hidden narratives” that were the source of Hitler's ideology and the Holocaust. Koenigsberg's book was the first to study political rhetoric from the perspective of embodied metaphor. Conceiving of the Jew as a “force of disintegration,” parasite, and as a bacteria within the German body politic, the Final Solution represented a struggle to destroy the source of Germany's disease-and thereby to save the nation. Hitler often is thought of as an anomaly. Koenigsberg's classic study demonstrates that Hitler acted based on the conventional ideology of nationalism: devotion to one's nation and a desire to destroy its enemies; willingness to die and kill-to sacrifice lives-in the name of a sacred object. Hitler's actions-the history he created-followed as a logical consequence of the ideology that he promoted. Hitler imagined that by destroying the Jewish disease-source of death-Germany might live forever. The Final Solution grew out of a fantasy about an immortal body (politic). Richard Koenigsberg received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the Graduate Faculty of the New School for Social Research. He has been writing and lecturing on Hitler, Nazism and the Holocaust for nearly forty years. Formerly a Professor of Behavioral Science, he presently is Director of the Center for the Study of War, Genocide and Terrorism. His online writings have generated excitement throughout the world.

Book Description Information Age Publishing, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The present work, states the author, constitutes the foundation of a new science: the science of psychoanalytic sociology (p. vii). He intends to give in this work a foundation of definite knowledge, a base which is solid, and upon which a true science of human ideas, beliefs and values may grow and flourish (p. ix). These ambitious aims demand a critical assessment. The author develops the hypothesis that the death of Hitler s mother from cancer was a major determinant of the nature of the phantasies which Hitler projected into the social reality (p. 4). The whole book aims to prove this point. Other inner or outside influences and reality factors are granted only minor significance in the development of Hitler s ideology. At the age of thirteen, Hitler lost his father, with whom he had a very ambivalent relationship. His mother, who was twenty-three years younger than her husband, died when Adolf Hitler was nineteen years old. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781593118563
