The Europeanization of the world is not what Enlightenment hoped it would look like, it is actually quite its opposite: not the triumphant march of reason, but the global hegemony of a mutilated rationality, unable to guide humanity towards its fulfilment. Europeanization ultimately means integration in a philosophical humanity in crisis. These considerations, I hope, will finally dispel any doubts concerning Husserl’s alleged naïve eurocentrism and will help appreciate his contribution to the great philosophical task of understanding the present state of humanity and its destiny.

Philosophical humanity… oder Europa

Abstract

The Europeanization of the world is not what Enlightenment hoped it would look like, it is actually quite its opposite: not the triumphant march of reason, but the global hegemony of a mutilated rationality, unable to guide humanity towards its fulfilment. Europeanization ultimately means integration in a philosophical humanity in crisis. These considerations, I hope, will finally dispel any doubts concerning Husserl’s alleged naïve eurocentrism and will help appreciate his contribution to the great philosophical task of understanding the present state of humanity and its destiny.
