Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition

Hannah Arendt's "The Human Condition", based on lectures at the University of Chicago and published in 1958, is considered her major philosophical work. The seminar offers a close reading of the following topics: An analysis of the vita activa based on the three categories of labor, work and action; the distinction between the vita activa and the vita contemplativa and the discussion of these concepts in Plato's and Aristotle's works; Arendt's most important innovation: the distinction between the private and the public; Marxist economics in the context of vita activa; the historic transition to the identification of life as the highest value - and finally: the significance of "natality" in reference to human action.

Die Frage nach der Technik - Von der "konservativen Revolution" bis Günther Anders" "Die atomare Drohung"

Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg etablierte sich rasch eine spezifisch deutsche Form der Technikanalyse. Während 'linke' Philosophen jedwede technische Innovation als Ausdruck des Fortschrittsgedankens begrüßten, sahen 'konservative' und 'rechte' Philosophen in der Technik ein Verhängnis, das zur antimetaphysischen Moderne gehörte. Während des Dritten Reiches suchte man nach einer 'deutschen Physik' oder 'deutschen Mathematik', in der Fortschritt und deutscher Sonderweg vereinbar erschienen. Nach 1945 kam es zu einer komplexen Gemengelage innerhalb der Technikanalysen, die bis hin zu Ernst Blochs "Prinzip Hoffnung" und Günther Anders' "Die atomare Drohung" verfolgt wird.
