Musil's Socratic discourse in Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften

by Daniel J Brooks | 01 July 1989
Hardback
Synopsis
This study asserts that a philosophical affinity exists between Socrates and Ulrich, the man without qualities of Musil's novel. Both figures are characterized by their negativity and their opposition to institutionalized values, and both are considered dangerous to the state. In exploring this relationship, conceptual parallels emerge in both Kierkegaard's and Nietzsche's depictions of the Socratic character. These parallels help to define Ulrich's function in Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften, particularly in relation to Musil's understanding of truth and moral value in the world.
