      This mountain magic mountains book a "hellish paradise," a place of lust and abandon, where Time flows differently: the visitor loses all sense of time. Shortly before that, in the circle of friends of Hans Castorp gets a new character - a Jesuit Naphtha, eternal and unchanging Mr. Throughout the book, they discuss the philosophy of timeand debate whether "interest and novelty dispel or shorten the content of time, while monotony and emptiness hinder its passage". However, while the novel was written, Mann himself became an outspoken supporter of the Weimar Republic, which may explain why Settembrini, especially in the later chapters, becomes the authorial voice. With the light a magnificent figure takes center stage. Soon Madame Chauchat leaves the resort - and this time perhaps forever.
