Peter Sloterdijk

In contemporary thought, the name Peter Sloterdijk is an international frontline. He is the author of Critique of Cynical Reason, greeted by Jürgen Habermas as the most important event in the history of ideas since 1945.

In his trilogy Spheres, he attempts to create (beyond Heidegger’s existential analysis) an overview of human history and the modern condition from a new theory of interior space and human animality: the ‘sphere’, the ‘bubble’ and ‘balloons’ are containers through which man thinks and feels the world in search of protection from external dangers, referring to the womb. Sloterdijk conceived postmodernity as a position that fights the totalitarianism of classical western metaphysics, the history of which must be understood as a process of globalization.
