Thinking the Unthinkable is the next episode that centers around Martin Heidegger, who developed ideas from the writings and ideas of Nietzsche in an attempt to better understand individual human freedom. Before and after the reign of the Nazis in Germany, Heidegger spent much of his time living in solitude in the hill of Todtnauberg to allow himself to clear his mind and better focus on his own philosophy. Due to the fact that he joined the Nazis during World War II, his works were dismissed by his critics as Nazi propaganda.

The monumental treatise Being and Time was published in 1927, the same year as Mein Kampf. This program dispassionately scrutinizes the life and philosophy of Martin Heidegger, describing his rise to intellectual prominence while laying bare the motives for his involvement with the Nazi party. Interviews with his son, Hermann Heidegger; George Steiner, author of an influential critique of his philosophy; Heidegger biographer Hugo Ott; and former pupil Hans-Georg Gadamer provide fresh insights, while reconstructions of key moments in Heidegge’s life flesh out the story of a man whose apologists and antagonists are still acrimoniously divided.

It’s the height of the Cold War and the United States government is desperate to combat the spread of Communism. The CIA launches a highly classified, top secret research program into the covert use of biological and chemical agents. In simulated attacks on enemy populations, entire cities in America are contaminated with bacteria, exposing millions of Americans to germ warfare. But the real focus of the research is on mastering the art of mind control. Psychiatrists at top academic institutions work under secret contract with the agency. Psychiatric patients, prisoners, even unwitting members of the public are exposed to a startling array of experiments designed to facilitate interrogations, induce amnesia and program in new behavior. Every psychological technique is explored, including hypnosis, electroshock therapy and lethal cocktails of drugs. What was the extent of these brainwashing experiments? How did the CIA become involved in such far-reaching and disturbing research?
