Description

ConceptAntonia Birnbaum und Helmut Draxler

In modernist thought, dialectics and anti-dialectics are usually diametrically opposed. The respective claims to truth, coherence in argumentation and stringency in ethical-political positioning seem to be accessible only through a rigorous either-or. While dialectics - in its passage through negation and contradiction - has always stylized itself as the royal road to truth, anti-dialectics - in its existential-philosophical, pragmatist or even monistic forms - wants to see a problem precisely in this, especially with regard to the different prerequisites of dialectical thinking itself. It would be easy to accuse anti-dialectics of ignoring contradictions and negativity and of being dependent on one-dimensional, non-dialectical concepts of process. However, by constitutively missing the truth, dialectics also seems to call up its counter-position again and again as a logical consequence. In other words, dialectics and anti-dialectics are more closely linked than their respective rationales would like to admit. Dialectics is haunted by an anti-dialectical moment that escapes its mediation, while anti-dialectics repeatedly suffers its dialectical appropriation whilst striving to get rid of it. How should the reciprocity of these failures, the polarity of dialectics and anti-dialectics, be conceived? Dialectical or anti-dialectical? Or does this polarity require us to problematize the logical, ontological and political dimensions of thought in a new way? This will be the decisive question of our conference.
