Offering the theory that Hitler and Wittgenstein were in the same class at school, this book proposes that the latter was the specific target of Hitler's bile in Mein Kampf, in which he describes a Jew at school, and that Hitler's beliefs about Jews came from the experience of meeting Wittgenstein at this time. It also argues that Wittgenstein, a secret Stalinist, had his revenge on Hitler by recruiting Blunt, Philby and other spies at Cambridge, who undermined the German cause by passing military information to the Russians.… (mere)

Simply astonishing is the history of Wittgenstein and Hitler. With Wittgenstein having an annoying habit of correcting people and Hitler hating being corrected so much he once said that the composer was wrong when someone pulled him up about a mistake in his singing. Whether Wittgenstein set Hitler on course to being a Jew hater is not proved by this book but it certainly is suggested in an almost eerily believable fashion. ( )

This is one of the most astonishing books I have ever read. It details the evidence to show that Adolf Hitler and Ludwig Wittgenstein, the philosopher, went to school together.

In itself, that fact is amazing. But it goes further. Wittgenstein may well have been the focus for the young Hitler's anti-Semitism; the author draws on evidence from Mein Kampf and other sources to suggest that this was so.

Starting from that premise, the book continues to explore Wittgenstein's philosophy in an accessible way (and the book is important for that very reason!), its links with the mainstream of European philosophical thought, and the role that Wittgenstein's thought played in the development of world politics and philosophy over the following fifty years.

Dabei handelt es sich bei Cornishs Buch um ein interessantes Kabinettstück eines nahezu paranoiden Geschichtsverständnisses, das die gesamte Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts von einem Gesichtspunkt (nämlich dem des vermuteten Austauschs zwischen den Schülern Wittgenstein und Hitler) her sieht. Auf diese Weise versucht Cornish, Belege für seine These aus der Geschichte selbst zu erhalten. Wer jedoch "Ludwig" und "Adolf" in den Wald hineinruft, sollte sich nicht wundern, wenn es "Wittgenstein" und "Hitler" herausschallt. Deutlich zeigt sich hier, wie inadäquat die Methode ist, zur Unterstützung einer These, für die keine Belege existieren, eine große Menge an Beinahe-Belegen anzuhäufen.
