Hans Blumenberg - 100th Birthday on 13 July 2020

13.07.2020



100 years ago, on this day, Hans Blumenberg was born in Lübeck. With his groundbreaking work on metaphors, his great studies on the genesis of modern thought as well as his late work dedicated to anthropological problems, he has created an œuvre that is unique in 20th-century philosophy. To this day, it takes an enormous effect, even far beyond the limts of the discipline, and numerous translations into more than 20 languages attest to his international significance. For more than 50 years, Suhrkamp Verlag has been publishing Hans Blumensberg’s substantial works, among them classics such as The Legitimacy of the Modern Age, The Genesis of the Copernican World, Shipwreck with Spectator or Work on Myth. On the occasion of his 100th birthday on July 13, 2020, Suhrkamp Verlag publishes two seminal new books by the philosopher: his hitherto unpublished doctoral thesis entitled Contributions to the Problem of the Originality of the Medieval-Scholastic Ontology as well as the study Reality and Realism, published from the estate. In addition, Rüdiger Zill presents an extensive and richly illustrated intellectual biography of this outstanding thinker in The Absolute Reader.
