Free at last! Living without narcissism and alienation. With Isolde Charim and Christoph Menke
People have never been as free as they are today. But hardly anyone feels truly free. How can we explain this paradox? Why does a society that offers ever more opportunities simultaneously create a feeling of increasing heteronomy?
For Christoph Menke (Theorie der Befreiung), freedom begins with a surprising experience from the outside: one of deep disturbance, love, or a creative opening. For him, being free means freeing oneself from one’s deadlocked ego.
Isolde Charim, prize-winning author of Die Qualen des Narzissmus – Über freiwillige Unterwerfung sees the fixation on one’s own ego as the main reason for modern alienation from freedom. Instead of finding liberation in the ego, digital narcissism leads to permanent bondage and dissatisfaction. A truly free life looks different – but how? Mod.: Wolfram Eilenberger
