Heidegger’s discourse in the Black Notebooks is banal in the sense of Hannah Arendt’s notion of the “banality of evil.” This discourse absorbed the doxa of anti-Semitism circulating in Europe from 1920–1940. Heidegger thus transfers the banality of anti-Semitism into philosophical thinking.

Keywords:   anti-Semitism, Hannah Arendt, banality of evil, Black Notebooks, Eichmann, Heidegger
