«Filosofix» has shown that philosophy is more than just pondering in an ivory tower. Philosophical ideas have changed the world - think of Plato or Karl Marx. Even today, philosophers shape our zeitgeist. And are regular guests in the “Sternstunde Philosophie”.

Six pioneers of the present

  • 1. Michael Sandel

    The American philosopher Michael Sandel is one of the most successful of his guild. It shows how attractive and up-to-date philosophy can be, what justice means in today's world and what money cannot buy.
  • 2. Peter Singer

    The Australian philosopher Peter Singer is one of the most influential and at the same time most radical philosophers of our time. He thinks: We can all do more - regardless of whether it concerns world poverty, climate change or animal husbandry. Singer believes it is our duty to alleviate suffering in the world. Everything else is subordinate to this goal.
  • 3. Martha Nussbaum

    The American philosopher Martha Nussbaum revolves around the question: What is a good life? In an interview with Barbara Bleisch, Nussbaum explains what role our feelings and art play in this and why there can be no justice without love.
  • 4. Peter Bieri

    The Swiss philosopher Peter Bieri is better known under his literary pseudonym Pascal Mercier ("Night train to Lisbon"). As a philosopher Bieri tries to bring conceptual clarity to basic human experiences. In an interview, he explains what a dignified life is and how we can protect the fragile good of dignity.
  • 5. Richard David Precht

    Hardly anyone conveys life's big questions as grippingly as Richard David Precht. In an interview with Barbara Bleisch, the popular philosopher uses philosophical thought experiments to show how philosophizing works and what thinkers of that time still have to say today.
  • 6. Cornel West

    The African-American star intellectual Cornel West is considered the philosophical voice of black America and the guilty conscience of the USA. Barbara Bleisch talks to the philosopher about equality, the importance of religion for politics and what it is worth living for.
