Echte Briefe an Ferdinand Praeger 18942.

Richard Wagner. Echte Briefe an Ferdinand Praeger
Published by Grau'sche Buchhandlung, Bayreuth 1894. Richard Wagner's real letters to F. Praeger, with an introduction by Hans von Wolzogen. Parts of this book were first published in the Bayreuther Blätter, see below, here, and here. The second edition was renamed to Richard Wagner an Ferdinand Praeger.

This book was a critique on another book, written by the Jewish-German musician and piano teacher Dr. F. Praeger, Wagner as I knew him, with the correspondence between him and Wagner, published by Longmans & Green, London 1892. According to Chamberlain, the letters were poorly translated („A truly Teutonic kind of English“, as the New York Times wrote), and gave an unfair impression of Wagner. After the publication of Chamberlain's version of the correspondence, publisher Breitkopf & Härtel felt obliged to take back and destroy the entire German edition (Wagner, wie ich ihn kannte, Leipzig 1892) of Praeger's book. Meaning that this book is rare...

George Ainslie Hight noted that „In England and America it still seems to be widely read, and is, more than any other single work, responsible for the false notions that are abroad about Wagner.“ Prof. Geoffrey G. Field wrote: „It is unclear why Praeger should have written so flawed a book. It did contain serious errors of fact and chronology, some of them, admittedly, arising out of problems of translation. Ernest Newman was puzzled by the whole affair and wondered whether “the author of it is not to be regarded as a diseased rather than a criminal type.“ Yet this distorted account of an unbalanced man who wanted to write himself into history was in many respects closer to the truth than the Wahnfried mythology — and this is what made it so dangerous“ (Evangelist of Race, p. 139).

Chamberlain — Recherches sur la sève ascendante, 18975.

Recherches sur la sève ascendante
Dissertation, published by Attinger frères, Neuchâtel, February 1897. 8º. VIII and 340 pages. Also published in the Bulletin du laboratoire de botanique générale de l'université de Genève, Vol. II, February 1897, directed by Marc Thury and John Briquet.

H. S. Chamberlain's treatise on the ascending of plant saps, a mystery at that time. Although he didn't solve the problem, the work was nevertheless a major achievement. Botanist and natural philosopher Johannes Reinke admired this work and referred to Chamberlain as his teacher. Furthermore this work was quoted by botanists like Wilhelm Pfeffer and Eduard Strasburger.

After reading this book, Dr. Julius Wiesner, professor of botany at the university of Vienna, and Chamberlain's former teacher plant physiology, wrote in a letter to his pupil, Nov. 24, 1896 (published in Lebenswege meines Denkens, p. 109), that it was a pity that he had decided to become a writer and didn't continue his researches. H. S. Chamberlain dedicated his book Die Grundlagen des 19. Jahrhunderts to Wiesner. The professor had a portrait of Chamberlain in his office, and the discussions he had with his student “were probably the most pleasant and exciting I have ever had in my life.“ (see Lebenswege, p. 117).

The biologist Jakob von Uexküll wrote: “This is the proof that Chamberlain was a professional biologist: No one, who has read his work on the ascending of plant saps, will doubt the fact that this is an outstanding experimental piece of work.“ (Natur und Leben, p. 8).

In these stories, written in a contemplative mood, Parsifal dreams, prays, rethinks, and when the tale ends he has learned another life lesson.

They were first published separately in the Bayreuther Blätter in 1892, 1893 and 1894. A rare, luxury edition appeared in 1900.

Published by F. Bruckmann A.-G., Munich 1915. Translated into

  • Dutch (Politieke idealen van Houston Stewart Chamberlain, by Jonkheer Bernard van der Wijck, 1915).
  • English (Political Ideals, translated with an introduction and notes by Dr. Alexander Jacob, published by National Vanguard Books, Hillsboro, West Virginia 1995).
Houston Stewart Chamberlain's ideas for a future German state. He mentioned this book in his letter to Adolf Hitler, but it is unknown if Hitler understood the hint and had actually read it. He must have had time enough while in jail, and it might have been the subject of the letters — lost at the end of WW2 — he wrote to H. S. Chamberlain.

Synopsis: All democracy will eventually lead to demagogy. Germany doesn't need French revolutionary ideals or Anglo-Saxon parliamentarism, and political power should be denied to all un-German elements. The Reichstag should be dissolved, for the people's representatives base their decisions on pre-defined party programs, instead of on the needs of the moment. Political decisions should be based on the advises of expert-committees, which are composed on grounds of proven merits. The monarch, no longer a puppet for ceremonial purposes, has the last word. The political ideals of the writer are eventually those of Immanuel Kant, „The greatest 'overthrower' of all times, the man, destined to show Germany the way to a new state“ (p. 95).

It took the German censor a whole month to decide whether this could be published or not.

War essay, published by F. Bruckmann A.-G., Munich 1915.

Synopsis: Fighting the misled English and French people isn't Germany's main task, it also has to overcome the infamous (niederträchtiche) elements, not only active behind enemy lines, but in Germany itself as well. The reader is summoned to have confidence in Providence, for He has destined Germany for a world-ennobling role. The war is a blessing in disguise, Germany is not just fighting for its right to exist, but also for the benefit of Christianity.

In this article Chamberlain admits an unimportant mistake he had made in his Grundlagen when quoting Montefiore, p. 373.

„Es handelt sich um etwas so Geringfügiges, dass ich die Spalten der Beilage der „Allgemeinen Zeitung“ zu dieser Berichtigung nicht hätte missbrauchen wollen, hätte ich nicht erfahren, dass einige hochachtbare jüdische Gelehrte über diesen unbedeutenden Lapsus (wie er wohl in jedem Buche, das hunderte von Anmerkungen hat, vorkommen muss) in einen Zustand von fassungsloser Wut geraten sind und mich des „falschen Zeugnisses“ beschuldigen. Diesen zur Beruhigung möchte ich schon heute den Irrtum öffentlich berichtigen“.
„It concerns something so unimportant that it would not have occured to me to abuse the columns of the supplement of the 'Allgemeinen Zeitung' for this correction, if it weren't for some Highly Learned Jewish scholars, who, beside themselves with rage over this insignificant lapsus (as one will probably find in any book that has hundreds of notes) accused me of „word-perverting“. To calm them down I would like to publicly correct my mistake today.“

Revues Allemandes — Amitiés de musiciens: deux amis de Beethoven, un faux ami de Wagner
Téodor de Wyzewa, in: Revue des deux Mondes, Nov. 15th, Paris 1893, p. 442—453.

„M. Chamberlain s'est fait depuis quelques années une situation tout à fait à part dans la littérature wagnérienne. Sans se piquer d'avoir été l'ami de Wagner, il s'est consacré tout entier à l'étude de son œuvre et de sa vie. Anglais d'origine, il s'est installé en Allemagne, et, pour mieux comprendre les écrits de Wagner, il s'est mis lui-même à penser, à écrire en allemand. Il a oublié ses idées, ses opinions personnelles, pour rechercher quelles avaient été au juste, sur tous les sujets, les idées, les opinions de Wagner. Et il est ainsi parvenu à un degré d'érudition wagnérienne quelque peu effrayant. Je ne serais point surpris qu'il connût jour par jour la vie de Wagner, et page par page les onze gros volumes de ses écrits. Et comme lui-même écrit avec une clarté, une précision remarquables, comme il entretient en outre des relations constantes avec Mme Wagner et le petit monde de Bayreuth, chacun des articles qu'il publie dans les revues allemandes fait aussitôt autorité parmi tous ceux qui s'occupent de Wagner.“

Wyzewa is mistaken: Chamberlain had seen Wagner only once, but never had met him in person.

„Ja, Chamberlain ist noch schlimmer als ein Jude! Den der „Judengott“ sucht heim die Sünden der Väter bis ins dritte und vierte Geschlecht. Chamberlain aber sucht die Sünden unserer Väter heim bis ins tausendste Geschlecht!“
(Chamberlain is even worse than the Jew! For the „Jewish God“ visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation. But Chamberlain visits the iniquity of our fathers unto the thousandth generation!)

I'm afraid that Dr. Eckstein somewhat exaggerates and misconstrues Chamberlain's theories. For instance: Chamberlain didn't write that Jesus was an Aryan, as Dr. Eckstein claims.

Ludwig Gurlitt, published by Wiegandt & Grieben, 1905. 240 pages.

It is not just wrong, it is stupid; and it is not just stupid, it is cretinous.“

(„... die Unzulänglichkeit der Methode, welche geistige Beanlagung besonders nach ihrer Memoriertüchtigkeit beurteilt und befördert. Es ist das nicht bloß falsch, es ist dumm; und es ist nicht bloß dumm, sondern es ist kretinmäszig“.)

Louis L. Snyder, published by Longmans, Green and Co., New York - Toronto 1939. 342 pages.

Description and analysis of the various racial theories. Chapter 8 and 9 deal with H. S. Chamberlain. Snyder is of opinion that A. Hitler was „strongly influenced by Chamberlain“ (p. 137). Why? Because it has to be so, and other historians say the same. Historians quoting each other — who needs proof? The trouble with Jewish scholars like Snyder and Goldhagen is that they don't seem to manage keeping a professional distance from their subject. To the right: front cover.

Reenchanted Science: Holism in German Culture from Wilhelm II to Hitler
Prof. Anne Harrington, published by Princeton University Press, 1999. 309 pages.

P. 106—108 discusses Chamberlain's theory of Life — „Leben ist Gestalt“, which is translated by Harrington as „Life is Order“. Gestalt means „Form“ or „Shape“ or „Appearance“; I myself would have left it untranslated in this case. But „Order“ sounds more German, right? „Ordnung muß sein!“ She needs this translation in order (sorry) to make the connection with Hitler, the man who wanted Teutonic rule above all. According to Chamberlain's theory something like a crystal, an atom or a planetary system shows order and has form, but not Gestalt — something only living things have: they are self-limiting, and every part it consists of makes every other part a necessity — in a living thing nothing is superfluous. You might think that therefore machines do have Gestalt too, and of course each part is needed to make a machine work, but no: its parts don't need one another; only the man who designed it does, and lifeforms aren't automata, according to Chamberlain. He did however use the word Gestalt in connection with the perfect state — which would be a monarchy, because „If all parts are equal, you won't get Gestalt, only more mass“. Therefore Chamberlain rejects both republicanism and communism. See Politische Ideale, p. 72. See also Chamberlain's Natur und Leben.

Soronin, interested in the influence of the German spirit upon Russian culture, states that the war between Germany and Russia was „the most tragic in European history“.

Houston Stewart Chamberlain - Zur textlichen Konstruktion einer Weltanschauung
Dr. Anja Lobenstein-Reichmann, in: Studia Linguistica Germanica, vol. 95, published by Walter de Gruyter, Berlin / New York 2008. XI, 708 pages.

„In discussions of National Socialism one question occurs with particular frequency: How was it possible in the country of poets and thinkers, for people educated in the humanities to follow a house painter like Hitler? This book aims to show that it was just these educated middle classes, whose own identity was formed by a cultural chauvinism (with the centres of identification of artistry and creativeness), who had been prepared for an ideology along the lines of National Socialism long before Hitler. One of the most important pioneers of this mind-set was Houston Stewart Chamberlain.“

Though H. S. Chamberlain was the most influential member of the Gobineau Vereinigung, he rarely had anything positive to say about Gobineau's racial theories, which he rejected as „scientific phantasmagorias“ (see The Foundations of the 19th century, p. 263).

Where Black Rules White. A Journey across and about Hayti
H. Hesketh Prichard, 1900.

According to Hesketh Prichard, the negro can't rule himself without turning politics into tyranny, religion into fetishism, and his land into a pile of rubbish (my rendering, Hesketh Prichard is way more eloquent). Chamberlain referred to this book in his Foundations, p. 290.

    „Can the negro rule himself?
    The present condition of Hayti gives the best possible answer to the question, and, considering the experiment has lasted for a century, perhaps also a conclusive one. For a century the answer has been working itself out there in flesh and blood. The negro has had his chance
, a fair field and no favour. He has had the most fertile and beautiful of the Carribbees for his own; he has had the advantage of excellent French laws; he inherited a made country, with Cap Haytien for its Paris, „Little Paris“ as it was called. Here was a wide land sown with prosperity, a land of wood, water, towns, and plantations, and in the midst of it the Black Man was turned loose to work out his own salvation.
    What has he made of the chances that were given to him?“ (p. 277—278)

Oswald Spengler — Untergang des Abendlandes 1923Der Untergang des Abendlandes. Umrisse einer Morphologie der Weltgeschichte
Oswald Spengler, published by C. H. Becksche Verlagsbuchhandlung, Munich 1918—1922. 2 Volumes.

H. S. Chamberlain opposed to Spengler's doom-theory of the 1000-years lifecycle of cultures, and wrote of this book (in his preface to the 14th edition of the „Grundlagen“, 1922):

„Es kann keine unglücklichere Lösung geben als die, welche der innere Feind gerade in diesem Augenblick, wo wir alle Kraft des Glaubens benötigen, im Umlauf gesetzt hat, die Parole von dem 'Untergang des Abendlandes'. Mit dem Worte 'Abendland' soll der Rassengedanke untergraben, und mit dem Worte 'Untergang' alles Hoffen abgeschnitten werden.“

(There cannot be a more unfortunate solution than that, which the enemy within us has come up with, right at the moment when we need all strength of faith
[Chamberlain is referring to Germany's lack of self-confidence after losing WW1]: the slogan of the 'Untergang des Abendlandes' [Decline of the West]. The word 'Abendland' is used to undermine the idea of race, and with the word 'Untergang' all hope is cut off.)

And then H. S. Chamberlain assures his readers that Germany is not on the brink of a downfall but on the morning of a new, glorious day. A critic called Spengler's book jokingly „Die Grundlage des 20. Jahrhunderts“.

von Harnack - MarcionMarcion: Das Evangelium vom fremden Gott. Eine Monographie zur Geschichte der Grundlegung der Katholischen Kirche
Prof. Adolf von Harnack, published by J.C. Hinrichs'sche Buchhandlung, Leipzig 1920. Also translated into English (Marcion: The Gospel of the Alien God), and into French (Marcion: L'Évangile du Dieu Étranger).

Marcion, 2nd century church father, and heretic. He wanted a Christianity without the burdens of the Old Testament. The Catholic church was formed against Marcion's. See also Chamberlain's remarks on this book in the preface to the second edition of Mensch und Gott.

Adolf von Harnack, court-theologian of Emperor Wilhelm II, argued for a non-Jewish Christianity:

„To reject the Old Testament in the 2nd century, would have been a failure, which the great church rightfully avoided; to maintain it in the 16th century, was a fate, that the reformation was not yet able to avoid; but to conserve it in the 19th century as a canonical document within the protestant world, is the result of religious and clerical paralysis“. (p. 217. My translation from the German).

Wilhelm II was influenced both by H. S. Chamberlain and A. von Harnack, and in his notes to Chamberlain's Mensch und Gott the emperor expressed his conviction that Christianity should cut loose all ties with Judaism, and that the Old Testament should be rejected, with the exception of a few psalms.
