There are two phases in the philosophy of the 20. and the beginning 21. century, in which not generally ‚the world‘, but actually issues like ‚land and sea‘, ‚land and air‘, ‚land and earth‘ became philosophical references. There are on the one hand the diagnoses of geopolitical crises in the 1950th and there is on the other hand the so-called ‚spatial turn‘ of the cultural sciences and related contemporary philosophy. The article presents two exemplary positions: the geo-philosophical reflections of Carl Schmitt as well as the considerations of Peter Sloterdijk in connection with his analyses of globalization. The article doesn’t intend an final appraisal of the subject matter (or the works of both authors). Following the guideline of Husserls considerations about „earth“ is however asked, which function may have the phenomenon (and topic) of a concretized spatiality in the context of the two exemplary presented philosophical diagnoses. What makes ‚land‘ or ‚space‘ attractive to Schmitt and Sloterdijk?
