Recent revelations about the opposition to his Habilitation on the part of certain senior faculty members only underscores the reality of the power-relations in and against which he had to work— and of course not just he. Kittler’s fascination with war as the medium both of historical and of technological-medial development can be seen therefore as in part at least a response both to the more immediate reality of recent German history—which in his case as in so many others had directly affected his family and his childhood—and to the hostile power-relations that pervaded the academic context of his writing, and which threatened during his Habilitation-process to put an early end to his career—as it had done a half century earlier to the academic career of one Walter Benjamin.
Humanities,’ which is how I rendered the title, is surely related to Geist but by no means identical with it. The German rendition of ‘humanities’ or ‘sciences humaines’ is Humanwissenschaften. It sounds as artificial as ‘sciences of the spirit’ would in English. All of this is not merely a linguistic accident, nor is it trivial in its implications and consequences. I am dwelling on this issue among others for the following reason: I am convinced that writers in general, and in this very singular case, the writings of Friedrich Kittler, gain enormously when they are read as responses to determinate situations, to distinct and not necessarily universal traditions and conventions, which can vary enormously from one linguistic area to another.
