Wolfram Eilenberger’s Time of the Magicians, translated by Shaun Whiteside, takes us back to the tumultuous decade between 1919 and 1929, as Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Cassirer, and Benjamin were thinking “intently, obsessively and sometimes dangerously about how to answer the oldest questions of philosophy.”  (The Guardian, 8/13/20;  The New York Times, 8/14/20; New Statesman, 12/10/20)
