Peter Sloterdijk was born in 1947 and is Professor emeritus of Aesthetics and Philosophy at the Institute of Design in Karlsruhe. The unmistakable characteristic of Peter Sloterdijk’s thought and writings is the way he embeds current issues in a long history. This way, he succeeds in redefining the current human condition, visualizes it from a hitherto unknown perspective, and finds evidence for unexpected or unsought connections. His book Critique of Cynical Reason is one of the biggest-selling philosophical books of the 20th century.

About

A radically personal view on the first decade of the Twenty-First Century

Every morning for over four decades, Peter Sloterdijk kept a special kind of diary: in lined A4 notebooks he put down in writing everything that had occurred to him the day before and everything that lay ahead. He had no intention of publishing these notebooks. This writing-for-oneself gave rise to ›dated notes‹ that reveal cheerfully melancholic reflections on the contemporary world; a unique combination of Denktagebuch, intellectual comedy, and social tragedy.

In these private diaries, Peter Sloterdijk wrote about and against current events, turning his attention to the big picture and the hidden details; those early hours produced extraordinary short essays and ironic aphorisms, mordant commentaries and reserved paeans. In late 2011 the diarist decided to publish these writings: he took notebook 100 from 2008 and transcribed his jottings, lines and days, up to May 2011.
