Chapter Summary

By virtue of human reason, the figures of evil had been taken to pieces of human imagination. Where the final overcoming of evil in human history became political program, that aim seemed to justify the worst crimes. Nationalism, National Socialism, Communism have been attractive for many people just because saving purification of evil in society, history and the world was promised by those ideologies. The 'Diabolic' is the expression of an experienced or anticipated sorrowful distortion of the currently accepted meaning, which endangers that symbolical unity, in which human beings essentially orient their existence and in which they order their scopes of experiences. Communication, on the one hand, aims at common participation in contents of consciousness and on the other hand presupposes that there already exists something common.

Keywords: communication; Diabolic; National Socialism
