Biography

Peter Sloterdijk (born June 26, 1947 in Karlsruhe) is a renowned German philosopher and a professor of philosophy and media theory at the Karlsruhe School of Design.

Sloterdijk’s philosophy strikes a balance between the firm academicism of a scholarly professor and a certain sense of anti-academicism (witness his ongoing interest in the ideas of Osho (“Rajneesh” Chandra Mohan Jain), whose disciple he became in the late seventies). Notwithstanding the criticism that some of his thoughts have provoked, he refuses to be labeled a “polemic thinker”, describing himself instead as “hyperbolic”.

His ideas reject the existence of dualisms—body and soul, subject and object, culture and nature, etc.—since their interaction, “spaces of coexistence”, and technical advances create a hybrid reality. Thus Sloterdijk, who is trying to develop a new humanism sometimes called posthumanism, seeks to integrate different components that have been, in his opinion, erroneously considered detached from each other. This search has led him to propose the creation of an “ontological constitution” that would incorporate all beings—humans, animals, plants, and machines.

    "Den Philosophen nicht nur zu lesen, sondern hören zu können ist ein wirklicher Ge- winn. Zwischen Göttern und spekulativen Gedanken begriffen, genießt Sloterdijk die Wortbildung, Epochenspiegelungen und Begriffsüberbrückungen, die ihm gelingen; er kostet sie aus wie ein Virtuose."(FAZ)
