By Wilhelm Schmidt-Biggemann, Eckhart Holzboog

Das vorliegende Buch zeigt, ausgehend von Schelling, Heidegger und Blumenberg, kritisch gegenuber Hegel und Foucault, wie kontingente, absolute Ereignisse als Geschichten erfahren und als erzahltes Wissen prasentiert werden. Als Berichte von Offenbarungen, als philosophische Heimatliteratur der Lebenswelt, als asthetische Sinnzumutungen oder Aporien diskursiver Machtentfaltung versuchen Geschichten, das Fluchtige zu bannen. Dabei inszenieren sie standig die Paradoxie, den Absolutismus der Realitat zugleich darzustellen und zu verlieren. Geschichte wissen betrifft als Erkenntnislehre geistiger Erfahrung wesentlich auch Theologie, Geschichtswissenschaft und Literaturtheorie.
