See Zobel, Art. See further Art. It is difficult to explain why and how the presumed Deuteronomistic redactors of Deuteronomy in the late Babylonian exile should have avoided the very terms that everyone inside and outside their theological circle used. Moses inserts the particular warning that also when Israel has been dispersed to the nations and is struggling to create and maintain a new existence among the foreign peoples, the tribulations will continue, and they will become increasingly worse.
The exile is seen as a reversal of all covenant blessings. What was the very reason for being uprooted and forced into exile that is idolatry , will become a total punishment in the dispersion. In their hardship v. Israel has had a direct experience of the living God, his presence, and his power to save from all earthly powers; cf. Against Turner, Death of Deaths, p. It must be admitted, however, that Dan. How does this portrayal of the religious environment for Israel in exile fit with the religious realities in the Babylonian exile, as they are known from the Biblical texts and from the archaeological record as to the Jewish presence in Babylonia and Persia?
It seems to me that the Books of Jeremiah and Ezekiel do not give any hint of an increasing worship of foreign gods or idols. Ezekiel certainly criticizes the idolatry among his fellow countrymen Ez. The relatively few known Babylonian texts that disclose Jewish activity in Babylonia by referring to Hebrew personal names suggest that some in the Jewish community still gave their children Hebrew theophoric names.
The notion of an ever increasing idolatry in the dispersion rather suggests a setting of pre-exilic covenant warnings. Due to the immediate context, the threat in v. Only from exile and dispersion become the major theme in Deut. Slavery as a circumscription of a vulnerable life in exile is not pictured in Deuteronomy. Block, ed. Their social position will be worse than that of slaves, since no one would buy them and thus provide for their food and shelter.
Deuteronomy proclaims that their situation in Egypt will become even more helpless and at risk than when they were slaves under Pharaoh! On the other hand, it is evident that the Babylonian exile was understood as slavery under the foreign monarch cf. Their overall situation was still understood as slavery in the land they had been given by God, even if they did not suffer from military campaigns against their cities and they had been given a certain self-governance. This postexilic understanding of the exile is also reflected in the Old Testament Pseudepigraphica.
Often the Pseudepigraphica refer to the exile in terms of slavery under the political powers. In this respect also, Deuteronomy does not seem to reflect an exilic experience. Conclusion Seen from the perspective of the implied audience of the Babylonian exile, Deut. In addition, Deut. Scott, ed. Its exile terminology seems to correspond to similar phraseology and notions in the 2nd millennium BC.
As a consequence of this, the strong curses in Deut. Does that not conflict with the principle stated in Deut. First, we may note that the author of Lamentations who struggled to find a theological meaning behind the terrible incidents in Jerusalem in BC apparently did not see any problem here. The fulfillment of what he decreed in times of old was a sure sign of his credibility and veracity. Next, it may be noted that a similar notion of what God intends to do in haste appears in Rev. However, looking through the lenses of history, God showed much forbearance and tried to call his people back to himself through many blessings, through political and environmental hardships and through numerous prophetic messengers.
Only after many generations of abortive calling back did he fulfill his decree of destruction and dispersal. He certainly does not want the destruction of his people which he has redeemed in his love. He hesitated as to the final abolition of the covenant because he was still looking for the possible return of his people to him.

They had to be known in the same fixed and therefore written form by his people as by himself. The Old Testament testifies that Moses was the first who wrote down such basic documents, so it is quite possible that he included these basic stories as well in them.
Hosea knew Moses as one of the founders. Introduction The theology of the Old Testament as conceived by the honoree, together with Professor Paul,1 starts from the idea that the Book of Genesis is the basis of everything and that the whole message of the Old Testament is developed from that starting point. Indeed, in later revelation God will never run counter to earlier revelation. Situation 2.
That is only a few days after the completion of the work on the walls 2 X This short time can explain why the official inauguration will be delayed until Neh. The chapters simply succeed each other in their chronological order. In the Bible, the narrative order does not always follow the historical order, but when such a rearrangement occurs, it is always marked. At this point a rearrangement is often presumed, but it is not required. It is surprising that Ezra — along with Nehemiah — plays an important role again, though he has not been mentioned since Ezr. To be published as: H. Koorevaar and M.
Paul, eds. We assume that Ezra left Jerusalem in , and that Nehemiah, as governor, was mainly involved in material and political business, and that now the time has arrived to focus on the contents. Of course you can cut out the name Ezra from the text and reconstruct history, but there are no textual grounds for this.
Just as the people assembled on the first day of the seventh month in because of the sacrificial service Ezr. In the following verses the program is explained in more detail. The initiative to read the Law came from the people, Ezra has apparently chosen the right passages and the Levites succeed in clarifying them for everyone: the people listen attentively. Expository preaching first leads to sorrow and then to great joy and social activity. The basis of this development is understanding Neh.
The audience is more limited this time and this service has more the character of a Bible study than a sermon. In general, Nehemiah seems to me more keeping to himself than Ezra. Had relatively few Levites gone into Exile because they did not belong to the upper classes?
Safrai and M. Stern, ed. The Text 3. Once again, the people are present in great number, apparently on their own initiative. After the festive period, there is now room for other emotions, which were already present earlier in On this date 24 Tishri the Caraites hold a fast because of the murdering of Gedaliah 2 Kings , Jer.
On the other hand it is noted that the Day of Reconciliation — a great day of abasement Lev. VanGemeren, ed. Klement for initiating the investigation. Probably wide black trousers, made from rough goat hair; cf. Carpenter and M. Ska points to some objections to that hypothesis: the Pentateuch is a very long text with not only legal aspects; elements have been included that would not please the Persians Gen.
They are reading for about three hours and repenting for another three hours in total, possibly alternated in smaller units of time. Now that there is once again a much bigger group, the Levites are called upon again. Even when everyone is involved, opportunities remain for people who have particularly focused on understanding God and His Word.
The prayer starts in b18 and has a clear structure. Duggan, Covenant Renewal, p. Hindy Najman, Seconding Sinai. It could seem strange that the origin of the Pentateuch would be situated in the Persian period and the book of Ezra-Nehemiah too, but the system seems to be more consistent when we follow S. Watts, ed. Knowledge was related to the ability to pass on this knowledge. Competences consist of a concatenation of knowledge, insight, abilities and attitudes, but knowledge lies at the basis. LXX only lets it start in v. Fensham, Ezra and Nehemiah, p. This is a reaction against polytheism as well as indifference, no matter how difficult that might be in our society.
Then God is acknowledged as Creator and Sustainer. The Jews have a strong historical awareness, which we share with them: our faith is also based on historical events. The Sabbath may receive such a prominent place here because this became the most important external sign in the Exile, since the sacrificial service was not possible then.
Seven times it is said here that God gave a teaching. God gives, again in ten times in ! Throntveit, Ezra-Nehemiah, p. Also E. Gaebelein, ed. For the study of this theme, H. Lipschits and M.

The New Testament, however, uses the expression of Isa. Job and different from our culture to good health. Then the downfall of the Northern and Southern Empire is briefly mentioned. Obviously this is a big jump; however, it is not a history course, but a confession of faith, which does not mention all phases of history, but only those that are important in the given circumstances. Every confession of faith, in every generation, is defined by the Scriptures and by circumstances.

Schoors, personal communication, 18 IX Fat soil contains much clay, which better holds the water and in that way is more fertile than meagre soil with much sand. One has to keep in mind, however, that a quite important development has occurred between the Samaritans of the times of Ezra and Nehemiah and the Samaritans we meet in the New Testament.
And its great harvest is for the kings whom You have placed over us in spite of our sins; and they rule over our bodies and our livestock according to their good will, but we are in great need. Brown, The Message of Nehemiah. It is forgiven people who are most sincere in worship, most devoted in service and most effective in witness. Oeming actually proposes p. Look, we are your servants on it. And it multiplies its fruit for the kings that you legitimately placed over us because of the sins of our fathers. They reign over our bodies and over our livestock with benevolent care. Yet we are now in great distress because we once again are close to rejecting your Torah.
Please note: even in the time of the monarchy a critical distance existed in relation to politics. Most Jews could write at least their name. Whereas in first the rulers, then the Levites and at last the priests are named, after the climax of the governor the named groups appear again in reversed order: the priests, the Levites and the rulers. For understanding the self-cursing in one should think of Deut. We assume this has to do with the religious notion: through marriage not only strange women, but also strange families and religions are introduced.
Apparently the risk of bad Hetty Lalleman, Celebrating the Law? Lalleman-de Winkel, Jeremiah in Prophetic Tradition. Then my argument that it deals with something else would be false. See the letters in Elephantine. For the meaning of the expression, cf. Maintaining the possibility to pass on the religious convictions to the next generation is the foremost reason. We need to realize that at the present time in which ecumenism claims a large territory, the statement that religious considerations are involved and not racist convictions, does not simplify the case.
Our attitude, in spite of social pressure, should be clear: gentle, cooperative the restriction of Ezr. In no marriages are nullified as opposed to Ezr. Here it is stated more generally than before, with a new practical arrangement the earlier mentioned peoples often did not exist anymore! Clines wrote an article about the use of Scripture in this chapter. I do not think that is where the solution to the problem lies.
Where there could be no obscurity in a fully Jewish society if there was nobody selling, nobody could buy , it is present now: can you buy from people who are not under the commandment? The believers at the time of Nehemiah are determined not to do so a. This agreement carried on in the history of Judaism and the Sabbath 35 Grosheide, Ezra-Nehemia I.
Winter, Seek the Welfare of the City.
In the Old Testament itself Isa. While the Sabbath celebration is largely a religious event on the family or individual level, the Sabbath year b is much more a socio-economic event, on the level of society Deut. Maybe originally different seven year cycles existed for the soil and for loans, for the soil perhaps even different per parcel.
Then it would be clear why no application is mentioned in the Bible. For loans there was probably only an exemption of interest or a suspension of the repayment cf. Nehemiah has only received an allowance for the rebuilding Neh. On the other hand, taxes were very high in the Persian time, so that people were easily tempted to cut down on Temple expenses cf.
The amount seems lower than in Ex. Clines considers this an institutionalizing of what was originally meant to be a onetime fee. Reading Ex. Here a practical arrangement is made to carry out an existing principle. In Qumran, the bringing of the wood is arranged on specific days, probably somewhere between the Festival of New Oil situated fourteen weeks later than Pentecost and the Feast of Tabernacles see 4Q RPc fr. Sidnie White Crawford and C. The biggest group was involved with the supplying of wood on 15 Av; other groups supplied on 1 Nisan, 20 Tammuz, 5, 7, 10 and 20 Av, 20 Elul en 1 Tevet.
Blackman, Mishnayoth II. Order Moed, London: Mishna, , ad. The arrangement of had been established in more detail earlier: Num. For agriculture no specific amount was established Ex. If we consider all the elements, we have dough of barley. The arrangement of this verse corresponds with Num. The verses 38ba are about tithes, not firstlings. The arrangement seems a lot more practical than in Deut.
If so, then we are dealing with a practical arrangement that replaces an earlier arrangement. What is collected for the Levites is examined by someone of a different stature: a priest. The Levites receive more than the priest, they are also more numerous. They too have to pay a tenth of their income. Anyone who would say that the sacrificial service has been replaced by a study of the Scriptures, on the basis of the comparison between Neh.
The Principles 4. The initiative to read Scripture comes from the people ;43 : what an ideal situation! These people consist of believers with a personal engagement. The engagement is much greater now , than a couple of years ago Ezr. The whole nation : cf. This is of course another view on Ezr.

That is different from a synagogue building! See further S. Mulder, ed. However, it is not totally new: cf.
Here we also notice the dealings with Deut. We do not find here a systematic discussion, but a response to new circumstances. Not all aspects of the history are named, but some selection has occurred in this overview, for example, David is not named. You could say that a growing authority of Scripture develops as opposed to direct revelation. Clines is right when he says that practical regulations can be changed or added and that temporary regulations can become fixed or generalized.
He could also be right that apparently contradicting regulations can all be followed by being as strict as possible, but he is wrong when he says that faith has to become more and more rigorous, because the synthesis of all earlier variations would mean that now all the details have to be followed. It is constantly about principles, even already in the Pentateuch. The same is true for the Codex Hammurabi. My attention was drawn to this by Karen R. This thought is discussed more elaborately by J. Verbruggen for this reference , p. On the other hand, one should not exaggerate the resemblance to Mesopotamian law: with respect to the various systems that M.
Gagarin, Writing Greek Law, Cambridge: UP, , discusses, the Old Testament system which Gagarin unfortunately does not study probably resembles the Greek system the most: as with the Greek alphabet, square script is read more. What Clines sees in Nehemiah does occur in Judaism. Think about the Pharisees who suggested all kinds of practical applications to help the people, but instead of a help it becomes a yoke, when sets of advice become fixed rules.
Let us come to a conclusion by listing some general principles. If we want to understand and explain the principles, we need to understand what exactly was meant by the original wording. So, this does not nullify the importance of the exact wording in the Bible, the study of these words, or a translation that is faithful to the wording. Ezra and Nehemiah are working on conquering land by moving frontiers, more than border traffic or short term individualism.
Besides, even some stupidities are described in Scripture, and we should not explain those as prescriptive. The Old Testament system certainly does not resemble the Roman system p. Nullens, ed. We should not confuse church, society and state, but in the end life is a unity: for Nehemiah prayer and action go together around the temple and the city. In some sense, the same rules apply as with using Scripture, but after the closing of the canon we have a lot more uncertainty. We belong to the rich Protestant tradition of the Christian Faith.
There has been a lot of thinking, believing, writing, ready to be re-evaluated, adopted and adjusted by the next generation. Tradition is grateful acceptance of what we have received from the previous generation, cherishing it, building upon it and handing it over to the next generation. It is different from repetition,74 a finished whole carried on from generation to generation unchanged. Therefore there are two dangers — stiffening and liberalization — which threaten every church that does not continually draw from the well in dialogue with its sur68 69 By the way: even Roman law knew the importance of equity: see Codex Justinianus 3,1,8.
The differences between the Testaments are limited, except for the obvious difference in expectation and fulfilment. Many young people in free churches, who have learned that we should return directly to the New Testament times, become disillusioned and at some point are craving for some sense of community. They have limited insight because of a lack of tradition and switch to churches with a larger emphasis on tradition than is healthy for them. These chapters can inspire us for this task, and moreover: God has given us His good Spirit.
Abstract The honoree is an example for us all in considering the Bible as historically trustworthy and as relevant for today. Therefore it seems fitting to discuss how the Bible itself deals with the Bible, by presenting a study about Neh. First a detailed exegesis of the text is offered. Then some principles about people and the relation to Scripture are discussed. McGowan lecture Tyndale Conference, d. Nantwich, 5 VII Introduction This paper seeks to explore what I call a multi-layer speech act approach.
This approach utilizes speech act theory as developed by J. Austin and many scholars since Austin as well as building upon indirect speech act theory begun in the works of John R. Searle to demonstrate the potential for such an approach in the future of biblical studies. I believe such an approach opens the door to new possibilities in biblical studies ranging from exegetical studies of smaller pericopes to wider studies of canon structure.
Review of Speech Act Theory Speech act theory as textual criticism arose as a response to a number of variations of critical theory, most notably, those forms of criticism that emphasize the text itself. For a more comprehensive survey of speech act theory see Hugh C. These rules are extra-textual. Thus studying a text as a speech act involves taking into account something which is not in the text, and yet is part of the communication of meaning by that text.
This approach goes against the basic principles of accountability of structural exegesis as well as of other exegetical methods, including rhetorical criticism which demand that what is stated about the meaning of the text be grounded on what is in the text. This observation already suggests that the basic approach demanded by structural exegesis and other exegetical methods , namely, the analysis of features of a text as the basis for interpretation, is not appropriate to account for the intentionality of the text.
Accordingly, as speech act theory deliberately explores textual intentionality, it becomes necessarily linked to other extra-textual theories such as reader criticism, which emerges about the same time as speech act theory. Both schools respond to text-centered approaches: speech act theory by emphasizing the importance of the author and reader-response criticism by emphasizing the importance of the reader and interpretation of a text. Hugh C. One might even go further in criticism and maintain that the causal theory ignores the fact that the meaning in general of a sign needs to be explained in terms of what users of the sign do or should mean by it on particular occasions; and so the latter notion, which is unexplained by the causal theory, is in fact the fundamental one, I am sympathetic to this more radical criticism, though I am aware that the point is controversial.
Grice explains that simple causal theory, or natural meaning, does not provide an adequate theory to understand meaning within a specific context. Accordingly, he developed his understanding of non-natural meaning into what he called the cooperation principle, an attempt to explain how people cooperate with each other in language. Austin, appears to have developed his approach as a response to the deficiencies of rhetorical analysis. Then Austin pointed out that there is a whole category of speech acts that do not fall exactly into either category: promises, invitations, commands, threats, legal declarations, etc.

All compassion is universally: willingness to desire and is therefore immoral, because desire directly striven for becomes compassion instead of worth. Compassion is immoral not to mention the foundation of morality because it stays within the link "Desire-Suffering", not within the "Worth-Nothingness" link, to which that functionality is tied. Desire is dependent on conditions, worth is not dependent on conditions. Here indeed pain becomes directly seen, but negated; and desire directly willed, instead of affirming worth, as in respect.
Cruelty means: to wish to make pain real as a sole reality , instead of placing desire with "Freedom-Worth". Schopenhauer whose Nirvana is as the only real, suffering -free , victory over one's own cruelty and Fechner are poles within the same progression. Both only ever find the desire- and pain-element as the nature of the world. Even the ascetic Pascal. Courage is the correlate of truthfulness. It is the respect-nothing of Nothingness.

In any victory over goodness in a man, all others are helped — and the reverse. God is the idea of salvation, of health. If we will, thus is the idea, thus God is with us.

The mirror is the surrogate for creating-oneself. It has a relationship to vanity and equally to individuality. The problem of individuality is the problem of vanity. That there are many souls, is the result of vanity. The criminal is vain, because he has the wish for uniqueness. One needs the spectator, the theatre, the pose. That's why the second man comes into being. That's why the criminal is homosexual. The genius is either the reversed crime or the reversed illness especially the reversed insanity. The artist must create something inferior to the philosopher.
Because he is more dependent on the moment than the other. If the vapid-headed Schiller instead of the mess of his beautiful-sounding, easily-ethicised phrase: "Shared joy is doubled joy — shared pain is halved pain! That Goethe had considered Schiller great, naturally proves nothing at all. Because he had also considered Wieland, Byron, and a number of painters of his time to be very great, and these were also not great.
Hercules is doric. Doric and Ionic must become sharply separated in Hellenism. They are related like poverty to wealth, like simplicity to affluence. The most godly work of art that I know is the "Farnese Hercules" in the museum at Naples. It is more holy than the saga of Hercules himself, and has an eternally gripping impact.
The "Farnese Bull" appears next to it as an expression of talent. That one could mention the Raphaelesque filth next to Michaelangelo, I comprehend; one would always do just this, because one understands Raphael wholly without , Michaelangelo only through , genius. The latter makes all, the former truly no, consideration for the observer.
Raphael was wholly impotent when he depicted God, Christ, philosophy.
Du und ich - Gedichte über Verbundenheit und Glück
He helped himself by renouncing character from the outset; then one calls this originality and praises it as a contestation against Michaelangelo. Raphael never dared let a body show its whole back, least of all God himself as Michelangelo had done in the second ceiling painting of the Cistine. To know who Michaelangelo and what Raphael is, one compares a less significant image, the "Flood" of the former, with one of the most outstanding of the latter, the "Burning of the Borgo".
This is very suitable on account of the inner homology and because there are no other representations of masses available by Michaelangelo. Raphael paints here a group, there another, piece for piece, each preoccupied with something different; it wholly lacks unity. Oneness and Allness are so problematic. The neurasthenic renounces Totality, the criminal Oneness. The neurasthenic is too weak for Allness, the criminal for Oneness. The deficiency of Oneness in the sea! Allness is here; but Oneness is here missing.
The north German is constituted too much by the idiosyncratic north German levelling.

Opposites also in Nature: the most fruitful European regions and the nearby volcanoes, the detestable lava — the shit of the earth. The child has no relationship at all to its future.

They lack physicality. Among the strangeness of fire is also that it needs oxygen to burn, exactly like its enemy, life. That's why life and flame are so often compared. The purifying effect of fire means that everything points to this element existing in the service of goodness. The dog is that criminal which continually seeks to prove others wrong to make itself right barking! It can only be as the slave to a master. The body is not immoral, but the skin is.
It is the threat of the body, the place where it acknowledges space, is vulnerable, besmirchable, becomes infected. Space comes into existence through making a real into not-reality, as with illness through emission of part of the I to the outside, incapability for Totality. It is the present devoid of eternity. All animals are criminal, even the horse, even the swan aimless beauty, never flies a little further : there is a fear of the swan.
The lake : attempt of the river to arrive at Totality? The Caspian Sea speaks of this. In any case there are stations of the river and points of stillness. Totality from the outer , Oneness from the outer. The snake is actually not in a narrower sense hateful. It is smooth; and yet seizes us with aversion for it: lie! The tortoise always makes a tired impression. An animal that is not vain and yet knows pain.
Just as one finds all possible combinations in the human world, thus also in the animal realm: fish that fly; birds that swim; suckling beasts that fly; suckling beasts that can swim. The snake suffers severely in the cold.

Death from outside. Realisation of chance. Absolute night, without hope. Snake and absolute certainty of hitting the mark. It hits sure and straight-lined, kills when it bites. The problem of justice is here the problem of chance! It lies from the outside. Lie from inside. The plant is illness. The animals and plants are not dead in men, but unconscious discardings in men, which he encounters only in unfree perceptions.
If medication has an effect, it is merely the psychological will, the belief, the hope, that have an effect. Constipation is indicative of being charged with mental and bodily impurity , without being directly expressed in a lasting pain. Astrology has a future that relies on the Incarnation; out of the constellation of stars can character be developed.
Matter is divisible: it lies in the number 2. All results, all syntheses are trinities: they lie in the number 3. Space is related to chaos; its nature persists in the position of distance illness and aloneness are related , the three dimensions flee from each other , space has no Oneness, it is the collection of all externalisation of perception, the whole I as unconsciousness. Homesickness is the wish to be a child i. Where the Oneness of consciousness is missing, as in the criminal, there aloneness is missing "The I senses itself", Rappaport , the awareness of time is missing because the separated debris of the I, unreal, nothingness, are positioned as real, becomes realised.
The holy that is the reversed criminal, Christ, Augustine, Kant suffers worst in the time problem. The Greeks know no holy men, so they know no time problem. Then is Nature-perception possible. And it is beautiful. He is free! To the other — unconscious — it is hateful, a threat to freedom, ruled by fear. The old maid is the nothingness developed out of the woman, created by the man who, from ethical reasons, never again meets with her. Thus no child develops. She perishes utterly.
Theft is creation of the real out of the not-real or serialisation of things in the I that do not belong to the I. The lie says its definition is the best, which is immoral: To posit the Unreal as real, or: serialisation in the I, where it ought not follow. The moon Luna is the externalised dream. The sleep-walker is the platonic idea of the dreamer. Who loves dogs, not cats, who has nothing doglike, i. The criminal liar dies from the inner, the occasional liar from the outer spatial snake-bite. But the criminal has the hallucination of the snake-bite and dies from false shock.
The moral is always supreme to the intellectual; the enchanter can discern everything, but not the good God, the idea. The weak and weaklings in regard to morality physicalise the weak degree of strength and courage: Jew and strength, woman and strength. One considers now, giving light to hopes of finding a simple rule of Nature by which sex is regulated. Surely this also stands under an ethical principle. But there cannot be a biological principle of Nature for a process, that deals with either the incarnation of a soul or the development of an evasive, delusion- and lying-form, as woman is.
It can, at least, be influenced by other natures experimentally. This takes effect again for men. Here is a wholly impossible infringement.
Just as unthinkable is a mechanical principle for the evaluation of the manly birth. And whoever now still doesn't know what is unjewish and what is jewish, sinks himself into life like the awakening Adam of Michelangelo in approximately the fourth painting in the the middle row of the altar wall in the Cistine chapel , in whom everything is still as a possibility, but also all possibilities effectively exist — with exception of one: Judaism!
The Jew is from the beginning; and yet he cannot also comprehend the end. He is between beginning and end. But beginning and end mean "feat". The Jew understands business, not feat. The Jew is too urgently against Christ. Christ is not for nothing bestride a donkey.

Donkey cult with Jews. The Jew is the punishment of the donkey: he is absolutely not asinine. That the Jews instantiate themselves in Germany hangs together with "Michel". The idiot smiles over intelligence; the Jew smiles over the good. He places himself thereby near goodness. He also shows how smiling can still be immoral. The man who miscarries his suicide? He is the complete criminal, because he wants life so as to rage against it. Everything evil is rage!
Vanity means: to want to calculate the merit of the I by what doesn't belong to the merit of the I. Thus also individuality. Such a one considers to his own merit, the merit that is God's. The criminal can need no witnesses. For, he hopes to conquer by criminal means and is in an inferior position. That's why he must kill all witnesses. The holy man smiles, without knowing why. He laughs unfree. The holy man is the unhappiest, notwithstanding he only seeks happiness. The devil is the man, who has it all without goodness , who knows the whole heaven without truthfulness, while all things exist only through goodness.
Every man creates his woman, perhaps two women for himself: one prostitute, one mother. Whether he makes her into a mother or not? This depends on his relationship to the ethical alone. There's no greater plaintive nonsense and impression : One unfailingly seeks something behind woman because one expects this rather than finding there's simply nothing there.
And so one comes to the idea of identifying her with the sphinx, with which she actually has no similarity whatsoever. Christ redeemed Magdalene — she was a prostitute, as long as he was in the wasteland. How can I accuse woman after all, for serving man? Man wants nothing other than she does. There is no man who would not be delighted if he exacted a sexual influence over a woman.
From things Man understands his own character. Each understanding is redemption , System and explanation is propitiation. Bist Du noch immer nicht in die Verfassung gekommen, zu lesen? Io ho denari, vorrei restituirtene. Mir geht es gar nicht gut, inwendig. August fortgehen , wie es in P. Juli Lieber Freund! Komme eben aus der Schack-Galerie. Und Du? Man hat auch so noch genug Schicksal, wenn man wer ist. Heil Dir! August , laut Poststempel Lieber, herzlich geliebter Freund! Ich dachte gerade an Dich und hatte eine Karte bei mir und nichts anderes.
Der hat sein Doktorat gemacht usw. Ich denke oft an Dich, aber Deine jetzige Lage macht mir dieses Denken ziemlich schmerzhaft. Leb' wohl! Ich habe noch etwas an Dir zu verrichten. Denn das wirst Du erst dann verstehen. Morgen fahr' ich nach Dresden. Hoffentlich hast Du's einmal um zehn Uhr vormittags probiert! Mario C. Ich freue mich sehr darauf. Noch am ehesten wenigstens. Auch Sch.
Sind die B. Eine lange Assoziationskette! Und die Leute davor! Es gibt weit hervorragendere Bilder hier. Einen hab' ich entdeckt, einen tiefen Kenner des Weibes: Palma Vecchio. Stenographiert August Von mir hast Du eine viel zu gute Meinung, das sehe ich immer wieder. Freilich ist auch dieses Bekenntnis, das ich Dir mache, von meiner verfluchten Eitelkeit wieder begleitet. Dir glaube ich es nicht ganz. Hoffentlich bist Du einverstanden mit dieser ersten Stenographie.
Das Meer Hoffentlich hast Du sie zur Zeit bereits. Die Post ist eine Einrichtung, der ich jetzt dankbar bin. Wie lange ich noch ausbleiben werde? Ich habe noch 55 Mark und 5 Gulden. Bleiben 23 Gulden. Hast Du wirklich geglaubt, es interessiere mich, mit wem Frau K Bin ich so ein Weib? Kennst Du das? In ihm hat die Natur die Schamlosigkeit verleiblichen wollen.
Bitte, schreib' aber wie bisher. Um Gotteswillen schick' Du mir nur nichts. Und wie bist Du's zufrieden gewesen? Meine Reise kommt mir so sinnwidrig vor. Nur geographisch ist's richtig. Aber nach dem Parsifal sollte man pilgern, lange, bis ans Ende der Erde, und dann irgendwie verschallen. Ich werde den J Allenfalls werde ich ihm das offen sagen. Aber bin ich sonst etwas? Ich zweifle sehr daran —. Halb 1 Uhr nachts, zwischen Sonntag und Montag. Also geh' ich doch nach Christiania. Bitte dahin postlagernd. August, Donnerstag, 10 Uhr vorm.
Ich habe also jetzt 14 Stunden Seefahrt hinter mir, darunter fast die ganze Nacht auf Deck zugebracht, bei ziemlichem Sturme und bis 4 Meter hohen Wellen; und bin seefest! Wie ich's von mir nicht anders erwartet hatte. Aus Deinen Briefen habe ich gar vieles noch nicht beantwortet. Man macht sich eine Mitteilung von weniger wichtigen Dingen um dem andern das Bild des Augenblicks fixieren zu helfen. Ich freue mich sehr: Montag werde ich hier im Nationaltheater den Peer Gynt sehen. Ich werde Dich genau von Allem avisieren. Bitte, schreibe jedoch jedenfalls noch nach Christiania Dienstag, Mittag, Wenn Du willst, begleite mich dann von P.
Du verstehst mich? Hamburg, Donnerstag morgens. Poststempel: 4. September Nun bin ich ernstlich auf der Heimreise, die solche Menschen wie Du oder ich wohl nie mit jener satten, eingewickelten Befriedigung antreten wie die Philister, die eben wirklich im Hause Nr. X zu Hause sind. Hier wirst Du auch den Schmerz finden und die Verzweiflung. Auch Mignon und Carmen werden so abgewerkelt. Oktober Deine Auffassung des B. Aber gut ist, wie Du die psychische Anspruchslosigkeit gerade der Mindestwertigen charakterisierst.
Wenn ja, so will ich zwei Sitze besorgen. April Also endlich hinter Dir! Das freut mich sehr, noch mehr, was jetzt kommen wird Rom, Roma, Panorama dalla Cupola di S. Le statue dei santi sul tetto. Ho dovuto passare a Roma, dove sto da ieri mezzogiorno. Es ist die fruchtbarste Gegend Europas. Hier kann ich nur geboren werden oder sterben — leben nicht. Ein Krater erinnert an den Hintern des Mandrill. Bei Shakespeare hat die Welt keinen Mittelpunkt, bei Beethoven hat sie einen.
Ich bitte Dich, schreibe mir recht bald! Mir liegt sehr viel daran Und schick' mir, bitte, endlich die Kopie des sizilianischen Turiddu-Liedes. Lies endlich den Peer Gynt , tue mir, wenn schon Dir selbst nicht, diesen Gefallen. Adresse: Reggio, Calabrie, ferma in posta. Mi dispiace molto, ch'io non so la causa. Credo, che tu hai qualche cosa di un azzardista: tu vuoi troppo come dono regalato dal destino. Questo in italiano, perche altra gente potrebbe leggere la cartolina. Ich habe schon Montag Kalabrien verlassen und bin heute in Neapel angekommen.
Paestum — Salerno — Amalfi — Sorrento. Are you still not yet in the frame of mind to read? I would actually like to finish off my notes and thoughts on "Peer Gynt". For the present, writing is very difficult for me, and I would have liked to have a discussion over it with you, to enlighten my thoughts on its formation. If that is now impossible in the near future, then I bid you merely about the book.
I have money, I would like to reimburse you some. I have today duly passed the major examination and they have, in great goodwill, even given me the unearned distinction It is not going so well for me, inwardly. I hope that at least things aren't too badly for you. Please, write to me at Munich, care of the general post office will leave there the earliest 4.
August , how it is in P. It's going a little better, at least I'm behaving as if it is. The soft, but irresistable influence of Munich beer is already making itself felt. Munich has still produced no great man: all get up, none persist. Just come from the Schack-Gallery. There hangs a copy of the most magnificent painting in the world, the Jeremiah of Michelangelo. I have until now not been conscious that there could be something like that, that so much can emanate from a painting. And you? For you this applies: restrain your passion, sans phrase.
One has yet enough destiny, if one is somebody. Hail to you! I was thinking directly of you and had only that card with me and nothing else. The thought is very painful, that your worthy mother or your sister had read the conclusion of that card and could have said: "Look you, Weininger is yet an intelligent man! He has received his doctorate, etc. I think often on you, but your current situation makes this thought pretty painful for me. And I can now really do nothing for you!
While you, from your happy corner, bear the worry not only for my clothing, but also for my expenses. Once would I bid you: don't insist too much of me in regards to conversation. For me it is a very poor time now, wretched as never before. Not only great unfruitfulness, not only the noisy limping of my ideas going on crutches, and this little enough; but also a lot else. Perhaps I will tell you about it one day. I lead a life which you know, but yet always two, three others, of which you do not know.
I warn you about that; more I cannot tell you, but bid you not to explore further in any way. I hope that you have received pleasure from the beautiful card.

Indeed, I have in addition sent two others the same scene, but it was not the same act for me. The words that Wagner has written before his house, would have led your own thoughts back to yourself. Don't believe that I do not fully understand your suffering. Only because I understand it, can I say nothing about it and write nothing against it to you. I know that for you at present, on both sides of the state examination lies nothing but endless, joyless mist. Otherwise you would still be able to learn You lack something for complete greatness, that is for sure; and had you that, then this alone would hinder you from thinking so much on your future.
Because that is the unhappiness with you. There are men for whom the inner and outer conditions must go just as poorly as for you and they still are not as unhappy. What you lack is simply the religious or philosophical or metaphysical. You have in you a fearful, glowing craving, a craving, the object of which you have no idea, and yet for which you keep insisting, insisting.
You yearn for your home and do not guess that you carry it only in yourself. I nevertheless have something for you to do. You haven't totally missed that other thing, that I know from that night here, about which we have never again spoken. I would be happy if after my return, I could contribute to this other, this being the only source of possible spiritual gratification for a man, to assist in producing its flow.
About Bayreuth and Parsifal I will write nothing to you. Because you are not going to understand that until then. Tomorrow I go to Dresden. Thus the fate of the sausage, that I have repeatedly sought after in Bayreuth with devoted interest, has been fulfilled. It is ruefully returned to its origin. Was it still edible? Hopefully you have tested it once at ten o'clock in the morning! He made the impression on me of a very serious and not very happy man.
I have entertained myself less with him, as with his friend while in his presence, a philosophising mathematics professor from south Italy that spoke to me in the international painting exhibition, directly as I was looking my fill with great fever at Klimt's "Philosophy" and had stepped over onto the low platform. Please, write to me anything unusual to be seen in Saxon Switzerland.
