New PDF release: Kritik der Freiheit: Das Grundproblem der Moderne (German

By Otfried Höffe

Freiheit hat für den Menschen und zugleich für die Moderne eine konstitutive Bedeutung. Trotzdem können heute weder das Prinzip Freiheit noch das Projekt der Moderne mit uneingeschränkter Zustimmung rechnen. Skeptiker machen auf unfavorable Folgen der Moderne und auf Kehrseiten ihres Freiheitsbegriffs aufmerksam. Höffe nimmt die Skepsis ernst, stellt die Freiheit auf den Prüfstand und unterwirft die Moderne einer Neuvermessung.

Freiheit und Moderne werden in dieser Studie weder abgelehnt noch verteidigt, vielmehr einer Kritik im Kantischen Sinne ausgesetzt. Statt einem radikalen Pessimismus oder Optimismus zu verfallen, werden Argumente des Für und Wider aufgesucht und gegeneinander abgewogen: Welches strength an Legitimation, welches an trouble enthalten das Prinzip Freiheit und das Projekt der Moderne? Das Werk versteht sich als Beitrag sowohl zu einer philosophischen Anthropologie als auch zu einer kritischen Theorie der Moderne, darüber hinaus zu einer kritischen Rechts- und Demokratietheorie und zu einer Theorie personaler Freiheit. Und zumindest Bausteine sucht es zu einer kritischen Theorie von Technik und Umweltschutz, von Medizin und Erziehung, von Wirtschaft und Politik, nicht zuletzt zu einer Freiheitstheorie von Wissenschaft und Kunst.
