Uroš Đurković
Megalomanski filozofski sataraš.
Usfereni džinovski podvig.
(Monade u teretani!)
Apsorbovanje apsorbovanja: studija moći, antropologija emitovanja, ontologija globalizacije, sveopšta istorija sveta, hipertraktat o modernitetu, anatomija atmosfere...

Neobuhvatljivo, naduveno, helijumsko, neretko i uobraženo štivo jedne grozničave, razbarušene a disciplinovane svesti.

Sloterdijk je najčešće kompilator, ali veoma zabavan i vešt kompilator. Priroda njegove hermetičnosti je

A thousand pages, but it was worth it. I can't wait to read the third book of the trilogy.

Qu’est ce que l’idée de sphère, de boule dans la société humaine ? Un espace de sécurité, préservant un intérieur contre un extérieur, en dehors de la sphère, c'est-à-dire l’inconnu, l’étranger, l’ennemi. C’est la ville et ses murs qui ont donné cette notion de boule, qui s’est réellement imprimé dans l’esprit de l’homme. La ville devenant un monde en elle-même, une arche de Noé. Bien sûr au cours du temps, cette notion a évolué de plus en plus. Jusqu’à finalement éclater complètement. Le modern ...more

Een heerlijke vorm van hersengymnastiek; aanteken-boekje erbij en geregeld weer in terug grijpen.

Who's Afraid of Muhammad?

A glaring, unspoken trend all honest men and women must come across is the seemingly infinite (I'm serious - they don't stop multiplying) number of 'Religious Critiques' that can be summed up as: 99% attack on Christianity, .4% reference(s) to Buddhism, .1% reference to Judaism, and a cumulative .5% of every single other religion, regardless of size, color, shape, or gender.

When dealing with Sloterdijk's 2,500 pseudo-tome-with-commercial-breaks-of

Overall, I did like the book but found it longwinded in sections. Sloterdijk is more a philosophical painter than a deep thinker in the manner of Deleuze or Whitehead. The result is mot what one expects. Reading this in a group was a big help, though - see video conversations at infiniteconversations.com

Het extreme individualisme van onze tijd wordt hierin gevat in de metafoor van het schuim: de nieuwste verschijningsvorm van de sferen waarin de mens moet leven. [return][return]In Sferen (deel 2) vraagt Sloterdijk niet langer 'Wat is de mens?', maar 'Waar is de mens?' Mensen omhullen zich met ruimtelijke sferen om zich te beschermen tegen de anderen en tegen de wereld. Waar die sferen in het eerste historische deel nog immuunruimtes en onmetelijke globes waren, is voor de moderne mens het schui ...more

Opmerkelijk werk. Voor niet filosofen een moeilijke klus die een filosofisch woordenboek vereist en tijd om sommige stukken te herlezen. Nu en dan zijn er litteraire hoogstandjes die het lezen vergemakkelijken en waarvan men overvloedig kan genieten.
Sloterdijk is zonder meer een van de belangrijkste filosofen van vandaag. Een aanrader.

Note to self
For exploration of the archetype of the center, especially read the introduction and chapters 4 and 5. Sean Kelly states, "this is the most comprehensive and original treatment of the metaphysics and phenomenology of sphere and center."

“A philosopher is one who, as an athlete of totality, is laden with the weight of the world. The essence of philosophy as a form of living is philponia — friendship with the entirety of weighty and worth things. The love of wisdom and the love of the weight of the one whole are unified.” 1 likes
