The silence of the sirens: Rereading the dialectic of enlightenment with kafka and borges

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article rereads Horkheimer and Adorno's classic Dialectic of Enlightenment from the standpoint of animal philosophy while also offering a comparison and contrast between Odysseus and Socrates as personifications of the "animal question" that haunts all Western philosophy. The key thesis is that this question is a metaphilosophical question and that we thus have to develop a critical philosophy that is at its core also an animal philosophy.
