Ausdruck und die Pathologien des Sozialen 

Back to issue: Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie 2015/1-2: Simmel
EUR 14.90

What is the nature of the relation between self presentation and political representation? Drawing on Simmel and Plessner this article tries to define the constitutive function of the role and the danger of self-expression as well as of a total transparency. Both of them are inhabited by a pathological excess of representation which undermines what it pretends to aim at: democracy.
