Berlin: DIAMONDPAPER, April 2009
|The current global economic crisis is also a crisis of social values. The question that arises today is: How will we live together in future? Answers are to be extracted - and this is the hypothesis of this book - from a profound reconsideration of the relationship between community and globalization. In dialogue with Jean-Luc Nancy and his philosophy Krystian Woznicki sheds light on a far reaching transformation: Globalization, a process during which the entire planet is being networked, desolves existing contexts (connections, relations, coherencies, etc.) and entails their immediate recreation - a process, which also leads to a desolution and recreation of community. Three essays by cultural critic Krystian Woznicki combine readings of philosophy, cinema, art and literature with personal reflection. His extensive talk with Jean-Luc Nancy opens up the world of an internationally discussed thinker, who is one of the most active and influential figures in philosophy at beginning of the 21st century.
As a contribution to the current debate on the future of society, Diamondpaper starts with Woznickis book a new series of intellectual interventions in pocket book format.
