    Philosophy as Hubris

    "Limitation of the use of reason for sure success" is Kant's formula for a critical use of reason by means of which reason shall be able to raise itself above the decay of metaphysical systems. But in order to gain autonomy, such reason must suppress impotence and discord. Kant applied this antimelancholic aspect of his critical turn to his aesthetic theory of the sublime. Due to the pure intellectual feeling of the sublime possessed by anyone whose "feeling strikes the melancholic" the human in…Read more

    Erst von dem zweiten, entscheidenden Teil der Magisterschrift Über den Begriff der Ironie aus wird sichtbar, wie Kierkegaard den frühromantischen Ironiebegriff durch einen hermeneutischen Rückgriff auf den sokratischen Ironiebegriff aufbrechen und historisch reformulieren will. Dieser Rückgriff bestimmt Komposition und Anlage der gesamten Magisterschrift schon von ihrem Anfang an. Er erklärt zugleich einen Großteil der interpretatorischen Schwierigkeiten, die dem Versuch innewohnen, dem vollen U…Read more

    Universalism vs. “All Under Heaven” (Tianxia / 天下) – Kant in China
    Yearbook for Eastern and Western Philosophy 2019 (4): 193-207. 2019.
    The discourse on freedom that Kant unfolds in his writings on the history of philosophy, especially in his essay Idea for a Universal History with Cosmopolitan Intent (1784), is a constitutive component of the moral perspective whose key concept is the notion of freedom. This is why critical philosophy, as Kant says, has its own “chiliastic expectation”, and the critical philosopher is a prophet who himself “occasions und produces the events he predicts”. Questions concerning the proper use of f…Read more

    Aesthetic Turn: From Thinking as Noesis to Thinking as Listening to my Living Body
    Yearbook for Eastern and Western Philosophy 2017 (2): 133-148. 2017.
    That which I always already am, without having to do it - the transcendental status of corporeality - is prefigured in Nietzsche’s theory, according to which every authentic philosophy is first of all to be thought “under the guidance of the body.” Nietzsche criticized philosophy’s forgetting of the living body long before a phenomenological difference was made between the living body and the dimensional body; he proposed that thinking be based on differences and not on oppositions. This turn to…Read more

    Schiller and the Birth of German Idealism
    In Antonino Falduto & Tim Mehigan (eds.), The Palgrave Handbook on the Philosophy of Friedrich Schiller, Springer Verlag. pp. 527-540. 2023.
    Friedrich Schiller’s significance for philosophy was established in an irrefutable way by the Neo-Kantians. Following Kuno Fischer’s brilliant lectures in Jena in 1858 under the title of “Schiller as Philosopher” and Friedrich Albert Lange’s development of the “standpoint of the ideal” from Schiller’s philosophic poetry in the last part of his Geschichte des Materialismus (1866, 2nd edition 1873/75), many thinkers including Karl Vorländer (1894), Eugen Kühnemann (1895), Bruno Bauch (1905), Wilhe…Read more

    Existenzphilosophie und Ethik (edited book)
    with Manuela Hackel
    De Gruyter. 2014.
    Die Frage, ob sich auf existenzphilosophischer Grundlage eine Ethik entwickeln lässt, ist seit jeher umstritten. Die Autoren dieses Bandes widmen sich dem Widerspruch, dass der Existenzphilosophie entweder eine starke Ethikverbundenheit oder eine große Ethikferne zugeschrieben wird. Befragt wurden hierzu die Ansätze Sören Kierkegaards, Heideggers, Karl Jaspers', Jean-Paul Sartres und anderer Autoren der Existenzphilosophie.

    Handbuch Literatur und Philosophie (edited book)
    Verlag J.B. Metzler. 2012.
    Wie nah sind sich Literatur und Philosophie? Die beiden Disziplinen stehen für ganz unterschiedliche Formen der Welterkenntnis und der Erkenntnisvermittlung. Doch ohne das Verständnis des jeweils anderen Bereiches kommen die literaturwissenschaftliche und die philosophische Analyse schnell an ihre Grenzen. Dass es zahlreiche Berührungspunkte zwischen Literatur und Philosophie gibt, zeigt dieses Handbuch. In 16 ausführlichen Kapiteln schafft es einen Überblick über Problemkonstellationen, bei den…Read more
