Especially, I think, when Lowy goes out of his way to argue that Benjamin is arguing also against positivism in Stalin retrogressively read back into Lenin however you feel about that project, I’m not really sure Benjamin was about it. Everyday life, artistic creation, and even the human body are all affected. These archaic forms of commemorating events have survived in the Western tradition mostly in literature and folklore.
