It is mainly Blumenberg's post-humously published works on phenomenology and anthropology, which show that his studies of metaphors and analogies, his phenomenology of history or his theory of modernity cherish the remembrance of the human in an entirely new way. This volume contains a selection of philosophical and theological articles, some of them in English.
The Human's self-description of an animal rationale can no longer be taken for granted. A crisis in the concept of rationality, insights into the contingency of human life challenged by theories of evolution and a gradual diminishing of normative ideas of humanity transform the question »What is a human being?« into two other questions: »What has it been?« and »What will it have been?« Hans Blumenberg's phenomenological anthropology performs this work of remembrance by hinting at possibilities, which have not yet been realized. It is mainly Blumenberg's post-humously published works on phenomenology and anthropology, which show that his studies of metaphors and analogies, his phenomenology of history or his theory of modernity cherish the remembrance of the human in an entirely new way. This volume contains a selection of philosophical and theological articles, some of them in English.
