The phrase is as apodictic as it is arrogant: These few words do not only express a fresh self-assurance of philosophy, but also a newly awakened awareness of problems. The scientific and technological approach, according to Heidegger's findings, transforms the world into an object of human manipulation which ultimately will threaten the very existence of man through the atomic bomb and human genomics.
The tone is unmistakably apocalyptic. While science does not know where it is going, philosophy sees it quite clearly: Heidegger's statement resonates to this day.
Rather, they do it ignorantly and from a safe distance, cultivating with considerable fuss what hermeneutics calls a "prejudice": Since our mental life is so rich, what should evolutionary theory or microbiology have to teach us about the human being, this insolvable riddle?
All of our lives are changed fundamentally, and with enormous speed, in the wake of contemporary science and technology Thus we have been taught in our studies: The two areas are completely different in methodology, and their representatives have nothing to say to each other; there can be nothing but misunderstandings.
This also affects their self-understanding. Do philosophers, literati, and intellectuals continue to regard themselves as interpreters of a world which appears to them only as a black box, and therefore, as it were, specialize in the consolation of their peers?
Or do they dare to reconsider the great old questions, not evading the friction with new scientific knowledge: What exactly is life? When did it begin? How does man tick? How deep is the universe? Is the universe a computer? Is there intelligence outside the earth? We live in one of the most exciting periods of cognitive activity in the history of mankind —John Brockman The British physicist and writer Charles Percy Snow had outlined the profile of this new kind of intellectual already half a century ago.
He spoke of men of the "third culture", equally well-versed in literature as in science. But Snow's concept remained a dead letter until John Brockman adopted it 25 years ago. Who is this man?
Brockman, who was part of the New York avant-garde scene of the s with people like John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol, found his way from the outskirts of experimental art into science, which he regards as a kind of creative practice.
Edge is a cybersalon for extensive scientific debate with a claim to be at the edge of knowledge. In the s, he began to build up a vibrant network of authors working at the interface between natural sciences and humanities.
He represents many of them as a literary agent, some of them to this day.Withdrawn Materials.
