"Der wahre Historiker" : Ingeborg Bachmann and the Problem of Witnessing History / von Caitríona Leahy


Ingeborg Bachmann’s project of articulating the muted truths of history and of storytelling raises issues that continue to occupy philosophers, historians and artists 30 years after her death. This volume identifies similar questions in the work of Derrida, Lyotard, Agamben, Žižek, Ransmayr and others. In doing so, it situates Bachmann’s core concern with bearing witness against the backdrop of contemporary debates about how we represent the world to ourselves.
