Abstract

In this article, we analyze Peter Sloterdijk's concept of "metanoethical imperative" in You Must Change Your Life. Our goal is to shed light on what, by drawing on Bernard Suits, we call "ludic reason." To do so, we will present and examine in depth the meaning of Sloterdijk's metanoethical imperative, as well as the main features of his concept of "aske-sis." Second, we will argue that both concepts are the result of the Heideggerian ontological principles underlying Sloteidijk's moral philosophy.Third, we will provide a "Sloterdi-jkean" interpretation of Suits' account of games by focusing on the metanoethical imperative that could be derived from the notion of the ludic reason.To conclude, we will focus on the role that the figure of the "Good-for-Nothing" plays in Sloterdijk's account, showing connections between Suits' and Sloterdijk's approaches. We will argue that, in the philosophical approaches of both philosophers, the idea of game playing is closely tied to the "question on Being.".
