Note 010
by Joachim C. Fest

As symptomatic of the anti-intellectual tendencies of the period M. Scheler listed Bolshevism, Fascism, the Youth Movement, the mania for dancing, psychoanalysis, the values newly placed on the child, the passion for primitive mythical mentalities, and others — see Sontheimer, Antidemokratisches Denken in der Weimarer Republik. Ernst Robert Curtius's book Deutscher Geist in Gefahr (Stuttgart, 1932) is also relevant in this broader context.

From Chapter 20, Professor NSDAP , Part 3 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
