I 14
Dialectic/Benjamin: Benjamin does not produce a synthesis. He lets the opposites collide to create space for the concept of a salvation that cannot be understood as the result of human planning and manipulation.
I 31f
Dialectic/Benjamin: Benjamin probably thinks dialectically, but not in a Hegelian way.
I 56
Dialectic of Power/Benjamin: the ruler knows that he himself will end up victim of his atrocities. The tyrant is simultaneously a mrtyr. The courtly nobleman is not only perfected in his manners, but at the same time the perfect intriguer.
I 69
"Dialectic at a standstill" means not reaching the goal. The movement continues, but on the spot. Eternal passage. "Nu": "The thing that has been gets flashingly connected to the "Now" into a constellation."
