Behind the apparent accessibility of knowledge lies the disappearance of privacy, homogenization, and the collapse of trust.
The anxiety to accumulate ever more information does not necessarily produce more knowledge or faith. Technology creates the illusion of total containment and constant monitoring of information, but what we lack is adequate interpretation of the information. In this manifesto, Byung-Chul Han denounces transparency as a false ideal, the strongest and most pernicious of our contemporary mythologies. The agony of eros by Byung-Chul Han Book 28 editions published between and in 7 languages and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Byung-Chul Han is one of the most widely read philosophers in Europe today, a member of the new generation of German thinkers that includes Markus Gabriel and Armen Avanessian.
In The Agony of Eros, a bestseller in Germany, Han considers the threat to love and desire in today's society. For Han, love requires the courage to accept self-negation for the sake of discovering the Other.
In a world of fetishized individualism and technologically mediated social interaction, it is the Other that is eradicated, not the self. In today's increasingly narcissistic society, we have come to look for love and desire within the inferno of the same. Han considers the pornographication of society, and shows how pornography profanes eros; addresses capitalism's leveling of essential differences; and discusses the politics of rros in today's burnout society.
To be dead to love, Han argues, is to be dead to thought itself. Concise in its expression but unsparing in its insight, The Agony of Eros is an important and provocative entry in Han's ongoing analysis of contemporary society. This remarkable essay, an intellectual experience of the first order, affords one of the best ways to gain full awareness of and join in one of the most pressing struggles of the day: the defense, that is to say -- as Rimbaud desired it -- the reinvention of love. Topology of violence by Byung-Chul Han Book 27 editions published between and in 5 languages and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Some things never disappearviolence, for example.
Violence is ubiquitous and incessant but protean, varying its outward form according to the social constellation at hand. In Topology of Violence, the philosopher Byung-Chul Han considers the shift in violence from the visible to the invisible, from the frontal to the viral to the self-inflicted, from brute force to mediated force, from the real to the virtual.
Violence, Han tells us, has gone from the negativeexplosive, massive, and martialto the positive, wielded without enmity or domination. This, he says, creates the false impression that violence has disappeared. Anonymized, desubjectified, systemic, violence conceals itself because it has become one with society. What is power? In this book the cultural theorist Byung-Chul Han develops a fresh and original perspective on the nature of power, shedding new light on this key feature of social and political life.
Han rejects this view, arguing that power is better understood as a mediation between ego and alter which creates a complex array of reciprocal interdependencies. Power can also be exercised not only against the other but also within and through the other, and this involves a much higher degree of mediation.
This perspective enables us to see that power and freedom are not opposed to one another but are manifestations of the same power, differing only in the degree of mediation. This highly original account of power will be of great interest to students and scholars of philosophy and of social, political and cultural theory, as well as to anyone seeking to understand the many ways in which power shapes our lives today. In the swarm : digital prospects by Byung-Chul Han Book 8 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Digital communication and social media have taken over our lives.
In this contrarian reflection on digitized life, Byung-Chul Han counters the cheerleaders for Twitter revolutions and Facebook activism by arguing that digital communication is in fact responsible for the disintegration of community and public space and is slowly eroding any possibility for real political action and meaningful political discourse.
In the predigital, analog era, by the time an angry letter to the editor had been composed, mailed, and received, the immediate agitation had passed. Today, digital communication enables instantaneous, impulsive reaction, meant to express and stir up outrage on the spot. Meanwhile, the public, the senders and receivers of these communications have become a digital swarm -- not a mass, or a crowd, or Negri and Hardt's antiquated notion of a "multitude," but a set of isolated individuals incapable of forming a "we," incapable of calling dominant power relations into question, incapable of formulating a future because of an obsession with the present.

The digital swarm is a fragmented entity that can focus on individual persons only in order to make them an object of scandal. Han, one of the most widely read philosophers in Europe today, describes a society in which information has overrun thought, in which the same algorithms are employed by Facebook, the stock market, and the intelligence services. Democracy is under threat because digital communication has made freedom and control indistinguishable. Big Brother has been succeeded by Big Data.
Im Schwarm Ansichten des Digitalen by Byung-Chul Han Book 17 editions published between and in Spanish and German and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Die digitale Vernetzung bringt einen Paradigmenwechsel mit sich, der in seiner Konsequenz genauso weitreichend ist wie der Buchdruck. So brauchten wir heute eine digitale Anthropologie, eine digitale Ethik oder Politologie. Informationen werden im privaten Raum produziert und ins Private kommuniziert. Saving beauty by Byung-Chul Han Book 15 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Beauty today is a paradox.
The cult of beauty is ubiquitous but it has lost its transcendence and become little more than an aspect of consumerism, the aesthetic dimension of capitalism. The sublime and unsettling aspects of beauty have given way to corporeal pleasures and 'likes', resulting in a kind of 'pornography' of beauty. In this book, cultural theorist Byung-Chul Han reinvigorates aesthetic theory for our digital age. He interrogates our preoccupation with all things slick and smooth, from Jeff Koon's sculptures and the iPhone to Brazilian waxing.
Reaching far deeper than our superficial reactions to viral videos and memes, Han wants to reclaim beauty by showing how it is associated with truth, temptation and even disaster. This wide-ranging and profound exploration of beauty will appeal to anyone interested in cultural and aesthetic theory, philosophy and digital media. The scent of time : a philosophical essay on the art of lingering by Byung-Chul Han Book 14 editions published between and in 4 languages and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide In his philosophical reflections on the art of lingering, acclaimed cultural theorist Byung-Chul Han argues that the value we attach today to the vita activa is producing a crisis in our sense of time.
Our attachment to the vita activa creates an imperative to work which degrades the human being into a labouring animal, an animal laborans. Emotions and values are said to transcend reality as it is carved out by solid scientific theories. Accordingly, the guiding question seems to be: Is there a place for values and emotions in the natural world? Phenomenologists do not call for minor revisions concerning this natural world picture. They reject the picture as a whole.
They do so by explaining, firstly, how emotions and values are firmly related to one another within an intentionalist framework, secondly, how this allows for bypassing hyper-objectivism and subjectivism, and, thirdly, what this means in terms of reinterpreting our notions of facts, world, and reality. Eine Grundspannung zeigt sich freilich in der Begriffsverwendung.
Normativity is typically understood as a prescriptive category that defines how something should be. As such, normativity concerns explicit rules, juridical laws or ethical imperatives that are legitimated by reason. But, can we also speak of normativity with regard to the realm of experience?

And, how would we do so phenomenologically? The panel endeavors to explore the phenomenological hypothesis that experience is normative. Experience is arguably normative in two ways: a implicitly governed by a rule-like structure , experience results in concordant perception, behaviors or attitudes, but also, b experience is subjective and hence, not neutral but evaluative. Moreover, one can ask whether norms are established from within experience, or from without , i. And furthermore, question to what extent these affects are influenced by material, cultural, and social conditions?
Contributions are invited that investigate how the regularity, generality, the typical or selective style of experience emerges, and how this relates to objectivity, that is to explain why normativity must not merely establish individual but also intersubjective standards to guarantee a world that is valid for all; Contributors can thereby focus on either affection, perception, bodily behavior, personal attitudes, judgments, or thinking.
Er verbindet ferner die Dimensionen a des Problematischen und b des Situationalen.

Etymologisch verweist das Wort auf dasjenige, was inmitten einer umstehenden Gruppe passiert und hier sozial verhandelt wird. Meinung ist demnach nicht mehr die einer platonischen Wahrheit entgegengesetzte doxa , sondern eine berechtigte Wahrnehmungsperspektive, aus der heraus das Erkannte nun einmal so erscheint, wie es sich zeigt. Gleichwohl handelt es sich bei seinen Einsichten keineswegs um beliebige Meinungen, sondern um wirkliche Erkenntnisse. Das Panel will alternative Sichtweisen auf diese Problematik erproben. Wie kann ein Realismus verteidigt werden, der die Konstruiertheit von Erkenntnis anerkennt und nicht dogmatisch szientistisch ist?
