This paper examines Heidegger’s critique of Carl Schmitt during the Nazi period, focusing on Heidegger’s notes for seminars on Hegel’s Philosophy of Right. Taking up Heidegger’s and Schmitt’s critique of Hegel, Heidegger argues that the friend/enemy distinction Schmitt makes is still grounded in a humanistic liberalism, and so in the very Hegelian subjectivity that Schmitt claims to reject. Heidegger then turns to the question of dikē, and shows how there is a more originary grounding for the polis and the state in a concept Heidegger develops from his analysis of Anaximander. Grounding this is the question which concerns which god (or which goddess) grounds any past, present, or future ‘political theology’.
