How can a philosopher born in 1724 have such a defining impact on our thinking today? 300 years after his birth in Königsberg (today Kaliningrad), writer Daniel Kehlmann (most recently "Lichtspiel") and philosopher Omri Boehm ("Radikaler Universalismus") come together to talk about Immanuel Kant. In Der bestirnte Himmel über mir, they encounter him as a contemporary who can still provide us with important answers today. This throws key issues of the present into stark focus:
from reason and enlightenment to racism and colonialism; from space and time to freedom, art, justice and the problem of evil; from science to faith, from the self to God. In this way, they provide an original and adroit access to the world of thought of the great philosopher and offer orientation in a confusing present. Mod.: Wolfram Eilenberger
