Zwischen Naturalismus und Religion
Two opposing tendencies characterise the intellectual situation today: With advances in genetics and brain research a scientifically objectified self-conception of the self is penetrating into everyday contexts and life. For philosophy, this brings up challenges of scientistic naturalism. On the other hand, a revitalization of religious traditions and the politicization of religious communities can be observed, too. In philosophy this gives rise to the desire to fundamentally rethink the post-metaphysical self-understanding of Western modernity.
