Peter Sloterdijk first became known in this country for his late 1980's Critique of Cynical Reason, which confronted headlong the “enlightened false consciousness” of Habermasian critical theory.
In Neither Sun nor Death, Sloterdijk answers questions posed by German writer Hans-Jürgen Heinrichs, commenting on such issues as technological mutation, development media, communication technologies, and his own intellectual itinerary. It is perhaps the best introduction available to Sloterdijk’s philosophical theory of globalization. It reveals a philosophe extraordinaire, encyclopedic and provocative, as much at ease with current French Theory (Gilles Deleuze, Paul Virilio, Gabriel Tarde) as with Heidegger and Indian mystic Osho Rajneesh.
