"La gran grieta del mundo". Siegfried Kracauer, Walter Benjamin y los debates sobre la figura del intelectual

  • Miguel Vedda Universidad de Buenos Aires; Instituto de Filología Hispánica

Resumo

The article examines a set of works of Siegfried Kracauer and Walter Benjamin with the intention of reconstructing the contributions of both authors to a critical theory of the intellectuals. Placed between the fronts, both essayists tried to bring together the social and political commitment and the search of a politicization of the intellectuals with the reluctance to accept and reproduce the dictations of an dogmatic party organization. Term of comparison for the context of production of both authors is considered the Paris of the Restaurationszeit, in which a group of exiled German thinkers and writers constituted themselves as the first modern intellectuals, identified with the figure of the lacerated consciousness (zerrissenes Bewußtsein), as it was formulated by Hegel.
