Personale Lebensform

Der Personbegriff in der Philosophischen Anthropologie

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

Philosophical anthropology offers two ways of structuring the concept of person, either by locating the essence of man in his being a person or by providing a bio- philosophy of personhood. Building on the work of Helmuth Plessner, this essay aims at conciliating both structurings. It argues for the thesis that personhood is the life-form of man and discusses the main structural features of human life-form.
