Ästhetik der Entschleunigung: Ernst Jüngers Reisetagebücher by Jan Robert Weber

By Jan Robert Weber

Ernst Jünger hat ein umfängliches Reisewerk hinterlassen. Im Laufe seines Lebens unternahm er mehr als eighty Reisen, etliche auch an exotische Orte in Übersee. Ausgehend von größtenteils unbekannten Dokumenten des Nachlasses - authentischen Reisenotizen und unveröffentlichten Briefen -, fügt Weber der Biografie dieses Jahrhundertmenschen das bislang ungeschriebene Kapitel eines intensiven Reiselebens hinzu.

Jünger reflektierte die Moderne als Beschleunigungsgeschichte und dokumentierte die um (Selbst-)Bewahrung bemühten Versuche, die katastrophalen Umbrüche, den permanenten Wandel des 20. Jahrhunderts literarisch zu bewältigen. Ernst Jüngers Ästhetik der Entschleunigung liefert damit nicht nur eine Ästhetik des Tourismus und der literarischen Moderne, sondern hält auch Verhaltensregeln für eine Epoche bereit, in der das Zeit-für-sich-haben immer weniger möglich erscheint.
