Peter Sloterdijk

The Philosopher's Gaze

Peter Sloterdijk is considered to be one of the world’s most influential philosophers, he has published numerous books on the crisis of philosophy in the West and the need for a new system of thought, always taking the stance of a continual criticism of humanism. Almost four decades after the appearance Critique of Cynical Reason (1983), the book which first made his name, Sloterdijk reflects on some of the themes he has worked on in his vast oeuvre which is constructed around a phenomenology of human spaces —from the maternal womb through to the globalised world— and focused on new kinds of religiosity, his idea of ethics as anthropotechnics, and the need for a categorical imperative of dignity and survival. Sloterdijk speaks with the philosopher Isidoro Reguera, an authority on his work who has translated into Spanish a good part of his philosophical texts.
