Interview with Kasina Entzi on Ernst Jünger

John interviews Kasina Entzi (Germanic Studies, Indiana University-Bloomington) on the life and thought of Ernst Jünger. Jünger is a controversial – and as Entzi argues, misunderstood – WWI war hero, memoirist, fiction writer, entomologist and, from her perspective, philosopher. In this episode, Kasina discusses his philosophy of technology, technology as it interacts progress and humanity, Jünger’s relation to and differences from Heidegger and German National Socialism, his concept of the political, and his account of pain and the body.
