Two individuals who attempted to create modern religions de Coubertin the "founder of the Modern Olympics who originally intended it as a return of a physicalitysport and competition religion and L Ron " of the Modern Olympics who originally intended it as a return of a physicalitysport and competition religion and L Ron s Scientology as two poles defining his points is extremely ascinating De Sade and Crowley are briefly touched on as well with his deconstruction of Scientology s roots in mid 2oth Century ears of Atomic War especially perceptiveAnd that s as ar as I got I d really like to take on the second uarter in one sitting but much like my plans to read Alan Moore s massive Jerusalem I m not exactly sure when I can make the time Time Will Tell You Must Change tell You Must Change Life This is the sublime imperative German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk explicates elucidates and contextualizes in his tour de At Sixes and Sevens force titled as the maxim itself which we learn is a pursuit as old as humanity itself Beginning with theirst monkey voyaging the savannah hammering his hand axe into a tool or survival the tale continues today in unprecedented acceleration through our technological age Starting with Rilke s poem The Archaic Torso of Apollo inspired by Rodin s statue in the Louvre In Which The Imperative in which the imperative therein proclaimed Sloterdijk begins a narrative of humanity through the concept of self improvement as a metaphor that encompasses both the Self and the Other Sloterdijk outlines the many ways the imperative has manifested itself throughout history He describes many orms that have been created to service this same The Last Honest Man: Mordecai Richler: An Oral Biography function of ascent and mastery In a word we discover it s all about capital p Progress To describe progress in evolutionary terms Sloterdijk borrows Richard Dawkins metaphor as the climbing of Mount Improbable and in philosophical terms Sloterdijk harps on Nietzsche endlessly through his notion of the bermensch You Must Change Your Life reads like rich intellectual treasure trove archiving a conversation that s been taking place over the millennia We hearrom Buddha Heraclitus Plato Aristotle the Stoics Heidegger Wittgenstein and Foucault to name only a The Catholic Home fewSloterdijk introduces us to many terms and phrases that become thematic toolsor his thesis Anthropotechnics metanoia auto operative curvature praxis lan just embrace it he s an intellect on that level where extraordinary vocabulary is reuisite additionally his prose was most likely not helped by the translat Review Sarah Binks forthcoming This opus of a book is uite something to digest I have yet to understand it all and the very intricacies and implications of what Sloterdijk is sayingAs a novice or willing amateur in philosophy Iear this book was a but beyond my skills Having little trouble in general to grasp academic texts of higher theoretical nature this however was very hard to extend the reuisite attention The core concept is simple enough yet Sloterdijk swings out to a oray of diverse anecdotes in an almost positivist maner I eel like he doesn t uite manage to tie it all together Too Many Puppies! for the uninitiated like myself Nor should he have to The work is truly a life time of accumulated knowledge no one could weave such tapestry without years upon years of subtle absorption Another point is the seeming lack of why in the grander sense of the concept Perhaps I am not again smart enough or attentive enough to grasp it But I do miss an explanation of why you must change your life A great emphasis is put on how and how through ages these anthrotechnics have been applied and in an analogical way they could probably have correspondence with reality But why Why do we do this why have we created a meta culture with the objective of you must change your life Thus I cannot give this book a higher rating Not in any uasi objective way because the book truly is wondrous and I sense that there is a deeper meaning which I just uite can t grasp But in my subjective opinion as a recommendationor others I eel like giving it a higher rating would be misleading as I believe that clarity and simplicity really are marks of genius as well.
