The 'ugly Jew' fights back - Otto Kirchheimer and Carl Schmitt
Otto Kischheimer (1905-1965) was Carl Schmitt's former doctoral student and acclaimed "Wunderkind." The two of them often had long heated discussions with only ended in disagreements. After one of these debates, Schmitt noted in his diary, "ugly, this Jew." Based on, so-far unpublished material from various archives, Professor Buchstein's will give a deeper insight into the complex personal relationship and theoretical exchanges between Kirchheimer and Schmitt, while presenting an overview of Kirchheimer's critical view
