Can one rightly speak of a Kierkegaard reception of Hermann Broch? The category 'influence' in the desk research on Hermann Broch has been a very controversial one. The attempt to determine Broch's theoretical position by researching the direct influences of philosophers such as Kant, Schopenhauer and Weininger characterized Broch research in the 1960s and 1970s. This treatment of 'direct' influences, which is problematic from a methodological point of view, was replaced in the 1980s by a trend towards 'context studies', which proceeded from a "broad analysis of the philosophical-historical or cultural-critical epochal context in which Broch stands". In line with this trend, mediation studies have recently become the focus of secondary literature. The full text of this article is in German.
