Cancel culture vs. freedom of expression? With Adrian Daub and Marie-Luisa Frick
A spectre is haunting Europe, indeed the whole world – the spectre of cancel culture. If you believe certain newspapers, white men over forty in particular are practically no longer allowed to say anything without risking their reputations or even their jobs. Is there anything to this? Or is this most often scaremongering, with the aim of painting activists as a threat to the moral order? Philosopher Marie-Luisa Frick, who has studied democratic discourse (“zivilisiert streiten”), develops an "ethics of freedom of contradiction", while Adrian Daub, in his latest book Cancel Culture Transfer, illuminates the cancel discourse historically and sees the problem as more one of distorted distorted perception. The two savants talk about the right culture of debate, between the poles of cancellation and freedom of expression.
