V. 8 N. 1 (2015): Perspectives on Emancipation: Hermeneutic and Aesthetic Investigations

What does “emancipation” mean today? A hermeneutical approach to this question tries above all to investigate the significance of emancipation in relation to human praxis. Since capitalist societies today prompt the rethinking of emancipatory practices, this volume sets the task to examine the topic of emancipation through a dialogue between different hermeneutical and aesthetical inquiries, while also opening for broader philosophical discussions of the main question here: “what does it mean for us to emancipate ourselves today?”. Taking the lead from central hermeneutical concepts such as plurality, praxis, non–foundational rationality, history, and the Other, the contributions engage with many different philosophical disciplines as well as philosophical currents.
