Zur Aktualität von Helmuth Plessners Philosophischer Anthropologie

Back to issue: Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie 2016/2: Plessner
EUR 14.90

Helmuth Plessner’s Philosophical Anthropology presents a threefold challenge to contemporary scientific endeavours. Plessner’s philosophy of nature could integ- rate the biological life sciences into a qualitative understanding of nature. Since the public and private roles of persons are threatened by monopolies, Plessner’s philosophy of history can help to elucidate how the results of Western modernity are stripped off their origins by global capitalism.
