Sample text

Serviceability and utility are now inscribed within a larger context of reliability (Verläßlichkeit)—“The serviceability of the equipment is, however, only the essential consequence of reliability” (GA 5: 20 /15; tm)—where reliability names the tool’s ability to negotiate a space beyond the control of Dasein. Heidegger’s much maligned interpretation of Van Gogh’s painting of peasant shoes brings to the fore the uncertainty endemic to reliability, here in the context of the peasant woman’s “uncomplaining worry as to the certainty of bread, wordless joy at having once more withstood want, trembling before the impending birth, and shivering at the surrounding menace of death” (GA 5: 19 /14).

11 The National Socialist objection to the earthen nature of Barlach’s work is an objection to its unformed massiveness. The earth stands for material that has yet to be taken up and spiritualized. This spiritualization is an assumption of meaning on the unformed and meaningless. Meaning is marking, forming, and the bestowal of meaning is life itself. The healthy life is one that grows ever more definite and meaningful in a meaningful world, growing into the full realization of its purpose. The healthy individual is a productive member of the state.

In this way it creates order out of the void, out of what Heidegger calls the “emptiness” of being (GA 7: 94 /EP 107). When production becomes a matter of life or death, when everything is at the disposal of and serves production (when everything is “mobilized,” to use the language of Ernst Jünger), when production is all-consuming, it becomes consumption, everything is consumed for production: The consumption of all materials . . for the unconditional possibility of the production of everything is determined in a concealed way by the complete emptiness in which beings, the materials of what is real, are suspended.
