Ideology and truth

Ideology and truth

(p.64) 6 Ideology and truth

Anthony Curtis Adler

Fordham University Press

This chapter turns to Heidegger’s lecture course The Essence of Truth, held in the Winter Semester of 1933/1934. By means of a close reading of the Republic, Heidegger argues that Plato stands at the threshold between two different ways of conceptualizing truth. By calling attention to the relation between Marx’s concept of ideology and the Platonic eidos, he suggests that it might be possible to reconceive the question of ideology in terms of the conflict between truth as disconcealment and truth as correctness.

Keywords:   alētheia, Heidegger, ideology, Nazism, truth
