"S. L. Frank's Report in the Nietzsche Archive (Weimar, 1932)": Lecture by Alexander Tsygankov
On April 10, 2020, within the framework of the seminar "West and East: Universalism of Culture", there was held an online report by candidate of Philosophical Sciences, a senior research fellow of the Laboratory Alexander S. Tsygankov
The speaker recreated the general historical and philosophical context of S. L. Frank's speech in the Nietzsche archive (the report called Nietzsche and Related Russian Thinkers / Nietzsche und ihm verwandte russische Geister), which took place on February 25, 1932. Based on archival materials stored in the Goethe- und Schiller-Archiv in Weimar, the correspondence between Frank and Friedrich Nietzsche's sister Elisabeth Foerster-Nietzsche was analyzed, as well as the General list of guests invited to the report of the Russian philosopher. Special attention was paid to the reconstruction of the life and creative path of Karl August Emge, one of the first German professors of philosophy, who voluntarily joined the national socialist party in December 1931, but at the same time was a friend of Semyon Frank and the organizer of his report in the Nietzsche archive in 1932.
