Durs Grünbein, Michael Wiederstein

A place, a garden, some time

A conversation with German lyricist Durs Grünbein

Steven Chu, Claudia Mäder, Florian Rittmeyer

It's all about money!

Steve Chu was the first working scientist to be appointed US energy secretary. After stepping down in 2013, the Nobel Prize winner remains optimistic about renewable energy, insisting that it's better to aim too high and fall short than aim too low and achieve one's goal. [more]

Bruno Affentranger

Take care, Sepp!

Given the controversy that has persistently swirled around FIFA president Sepp Blatter up to now, one might have expected a more critical approach. But Bruno Affentranger proves himself a devotee, painting Blatter as a man who still believes in his core business. [more]

Marc Beise, Frank Schirrmacher, Peter Sloterdijk

Bigger than us

A round table discussion on the age of big data

Welcome to the parallel world of data, where all data is credit data and the digital economy knows no limits. But add systemic mistrust and intercontinental economic warfare to the equation, and the question as to where all this is heading becomes critical. [more]

Gilles Lipovetsky, Mario Vargas Llosa

"Proust is important for everyone"

Jörg Scheller, Wolfgang Welsch

Thinking creatively: From Darwin to BioArt

In interview with Jörg Scheller, philosopher Wolfgang Welsch reveals the rigours of an evolutionary approach to questions of human culture and society. In doing so, Welsch outlines how, during the twentieth century, art begins to break through the anthropic cocoon. [more]

David Runciman, Michael Wiederstein

"Democracy is crisis"

In interview with Michael Wiederstein, the British political scientist David Runciman suggests how to remedy some of the myths that the eurocrisis has thrown into sharp relief: from genuine choice in politics or markets to the prospect of a purifying super-crisis. [more]

Wolfram Weimer

Left - two - three - four...

Five political parties with five all but identical manifestos: ahead of the German election, Wolfram Weimer laments the pettiness of political culture in European social democracies. Could it be that the resulting European inferiority complex is about to take a fatal turn? [more]

Rolf Dobelli, John Gray, Tomás Sedlácek, Nassim Nicholas Taleb

In the philosophical base camp

Roundtable discussion

Michail Ryklin

What the Europeans love to forget

Russian philosopher Michail Ryklin firmly rejects the "EUSSR" polemic and wholeheartedly endorses Europe's culture, diversity and philosophical tradition. He is equally forthright in endorsing the need to actively protect the private sphere. [more]

John Gray, René Scheu

The role of the sceptic

A conversation with John Gray

The destination of intellectual journeys, remarks John Gray, is unknown at any one time. Utopianism, on the other hand, usually ends in disaster. Thus the radical anti-communist of the 1970s finds Marx's analysis of capitalism prescient today and rates Keynes above Hayek. [more]

21.05.2013


Josef Girshovich, John Lanchester

The sale of London

A conversation with author and journalist John Lanchester

John Lanchester, author of the 2012 London novel "Capital", describes how the whole of London has become a department store in which the streets are shelves and the houses goods for sale. It is here that his characters' lives play out, between the poles of homeliness and displacement. [more]

Harold James

The Swiss model

Harold James advocates scaling up small country democracy, if the members of the European Union are ever to succeed in settling upon a working model of democracy. He explains why the Swiss model of "Konkordanzdemokratie" has much to offer. [more]

26.02.2013


Ulrich Beck, René Scheu

Europe is burning

Ulrich Beck explains why Germany's new leading role in Europe is a mixed blessing not only for Europe but for Germany too, and makes the case for a grassroots, cosmopolitan European Union based not on national identity but a new sense of civil participation. [more]

Simon Garnett
Britain flouts the European Court of Justice

http://www.eurozine.com/blog/
The UK has passed legislation on data retention that flouts European concerns about privacy. The move demonstrates extraordinary arrogance not only towards the Court of Justice of the European Union but towards the principle of parliamentary deliberation in Britain, writes Simon Garnett. [more]

William E Scheuerman
Civil disobedience for an age of total surveillance
The case of Edward Snowden

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-04-18-scheuerman-en.html
Earlier civil disobedients hinted at our increasingly global condition. Snowden takes it as a given. But, writes William E. Scheuerman, in lieu of an independent global legal system in which Snowden could defend his legal claims, the Obama administration should treat him with clemency. [more]

Olga Tokarczuk
A finger pointing at the moon

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-01-16-tokarczuk-en.html
Our language is our literary destiny, writes Olga Tokarczuk. And "minority" languages provide a special kind of sanctuary too, inaccessible to the rest of the world. But, there again, language is at its most powerful when it reaches beyond itself and starts to create an alternative world. [more]

Piotr Kiezun, Jaroslaw Kuisz
