Peter Sloterdijk and the absolute imperative

09 Jan

PeterSloterdijkWhen grumble about individualism, consumerism and other isms, most often has ignored that this is the Western philosophy, and it is also based on our ethical (read the post about Martha Nussbaum) and there are clear examples: take his testimony, do your part, are forms of individualism often also in groups.

What we should do is to seek collective action together with humanity, I say in networking.

Peter Sloterdijk calls attention to the categorical imperative, created by the philosopher Emmanuel Kant at the beginning of modernity, Sloterdijk explains: “Kant wanted to reconcile the selfishness of private interests and the demands of the common good, while enabling the coexistence of all rational creatures in the legal context of bourgeois society “(pp. 53), the small booklet” The world has no more time to lose” the brazilian edition is make Civilização Brasileira publisher, in 2014.
This booklet, published in France in 2012 with “Le monde n’s plus temps to perdre” coordinated by Sacha Goldman, write articles Michel Rocard, Mireille Delmas-Marty, René Passet, Edgar Morin, Michael W. Doyle, Stéphane Hessel Bernard Miyet addition to Sloterdijk, which as the title says the urgency of global governance.

Sloterdijik known for controversy with Heidegger in his “Rules for the human Zoo” writes about this booklet, which is the absolute imperative to eliminate among men “situations in which he was a poor creature, miserable, wretched, abandoned”.

Remember the philosopher Hans Jonas, seeing the ecological crisis, which updated the categorical imperative guiding him to the future and the relationship policy with nature, but he remembers two recent phenomena: “a technical and other political, came profoundly transform your reach “(p. 64),” the first of immaterial nature, “we are coming out of the Neolithic”, and the second of a political nature, “started in the 1980s, is none other than the release of capital movements in the world, which, allowing the concentration across national borders, leading to the formation of a planetary financial power superior to the States “(p. 66).
What all authors of this booklet ask, is a “caring and responsible global governance” is worth reading.
