Work and democracy. With Axel Honneth and Olaf Scholz
Die Veranstaltung wurde in die Flora Köln verlegt.
One paramount task in a democracy is the formation of political opinion and will. Consequently, the people can only fulfil its task as sovereign if sufficient resources and time are available to form such consensuses. But how we manage this in a working world where a 40-hour week is considered normal? Hannah Arendt considered not work, but action, the power to shape policy, to be the core activity of the democratic sovereign – is it not perhaps time to heed her wisdom? At what pivot points could a politics of work in this sense apply leverage? At a time in which democracy is experiencing a fundamental crisis, such questions are of the utmost urgency. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz talks to philosopher Axel Honneth, whose book "der arbeitende Souverän” has just been released.
