Moving from the difference between “ground-situation” and “boundary-situation” the article tries to sketch out some basic features of them, among others: their permeability to the human action; the connection between pain and transcendence; the insufficiency of the intellectual awareness, and the role of free choice. From this background, the question about the historical guilt of the Germans after the IIWW is confronted with the hypothesis to consider it – or, at least, the way by which Jaspers thematizes it – as an analogy (but not as a full equivalent) to the correspondent boundary-situation. What one more time emerges is the fascinating complexity of both the notions of Grenzsituation and guilt also in the light of Jaspers’ personal life throughout the 20. century.
