Throughout his life Ernst Junger tried to identify a significance
behind all that happens, even if this should be revealed as
dreadful or imbued with some alien meaning . The conference
proceedings investigate this search for a historically and
ideologically acceptable meaning of both general and personal
experience. The volume aims to consider both Junger s political
esthetics and his perception of language in the light of the
philosophical tradition and the literary conflict between the
Romantic and the Modern, following his development from the war
diaries through the political journalism of the period between the
world wars to the narrative works of the contemporary period. The
proposition set out here is that Junger s work represents cultural
practices of life and survival, constantly shifting between combat
and art and indeed in such a way that both ideological and esthetic
aspects are granted equal consideration."
