Der andere Anfang
Vladimir Bibichin (1938-2004) is one of the most influential Russian philosophers of the last century. His Heidegger translations made him known and allowed him to develop his own philosophical positions. The present volume is the first in German and presents his exploration of contemporary Russian history. The period of upheaval between 1991 and 1993 is the starting point for his statements in the perpetual dispute between Westerners and Slavophiles. Bibichin, who felt equally at home in religious philosophy and in the European traditions of thought as well, turned against the "Russian Sonderweg" and tried the "Other beginning". His examination of "One's own" leads him to a criticism of the unleashed technology and globalization.
