Regarding Principles, e.g., Hospitality and Openness.  California USA, June 2013.

“Present-day philosophy is the art of establishing an immediate relation with super-complexities. It is an athletic task and requires a mind that is more or less able to withstand the load. for this, there is no need to present yourself as a visionary and order yourself an extra serving of idealism. Having an openness to great questions is already sufficient. In my eyes, if you behave somewhat properly in your defencelessness befor the great themes, and thereby make a contribution to the de-idiotization of the ‘I,’ this is totally enough entirely.”

Peter Sloterdijk, from NEITHER SUN NOR DEATH (English edition 2011)
