Example text

The philosophy, science, and literature that arose within the influence of the Third Humanism generated this interdependent ‘human proportion’ that included a deeper, non-conscious intelligence, and the concomitant requirement for a more effective listening and empathy. Whether the dialogical therapy of Sigmund Freud that recognised transference and counter-transference between therapist and patient – placing both, respectively, in error as well as normalcy – or the oblique tales of Franz Kafka – where the imperfect narrator discovers his errors through the voices of those with whom he interacts – or the dramas of Hermann Bahr – such as Der Querulant where the multiplicity of linguistic forms of address (Kanzleideutsch, and the ‘Mundarten’ of Austrian provincial speech) weave in and out of the dialogue, becoming weapons of communication by which some suffer and some command authority – or the new oral history of Heinrich Friedjung that allowed the historian and his agent in dialogue to flesh out the varying possibilities of what had occurred (his interview with Otto von Bismarck on the latter’s intention towards Austria in the 1860s), to be an Austrian mind one had to open one’s own thought to the parallel or transversing thought and action of others.

In his theoretical writings and his tactical praxis, Bauer will evidence elements of psychological interference, but not to the extent that one finds in the thought and praxis of Max Adler, and his fellow Austro-Marxist, Friedrich Adler. Max Adler shared with Friedrich Adler powerful psychological defences against a depth understanding of self and others. 3 Max Adler’s condition was not that of the Oedipus Complex; rather it was the experience of being always ‘separate’ from the immediacy of ‘others’, indeed, an ‘asocial individualism’.

116–17. e. the greater complexity of mind and individuality – in Mann 1939, pp. 189–93. 7 See Blum 2003, pp. 131–42. introduction 11 It can be recognised in the Austrian Shakespeare, Franz Grillparzer’s König Ottakars Glück und Ende, as well as later in the nineteenth century, in the novelles of Adalbert Stifter’s Bunte Steine. This humanistic praxis is the necessity of each person listening to what was said, and relating it to his or her own view before responding. The philosophy, science, and literature that arose within the influence of the Third Humanism generated this interdependent ‘human proportion’ that included a deeper, non-conscious intelligence, and the concomitant requirement for a more effective listening and empathy.
