“Hegel has just explicitly identified enlightenment as melancholia.” – ‘Memory alone then preserves the dead form of the Spirit’s shape as a vanished history [vergangene Geschichte], vanished one knows not how. And the new serpent of wisdom raised on high for admiration has in this way painlessly cast merely a withered skin.’
