Let me ask you a question: What do you think of German philosopher Markus Gabriel?
In the last few months I have read four books by him, because he is supposedly the most important and original German philosopher of his generation.
But my impression after reading them is rather sobering. Frankly, I think Gabriel is a highly gifted phony. He is incredibly intelligent and incredibly well-read, but in my opinion his theories have no real substance.
Or is it just me that I can't see that substance? -
Is there anyone here in the group who has understood Gabriel and appreciates him?
Has anyone understood his theory of "fields of sense" and thinks that it is a milestone of contemporary philosophy ?
I found and read the interview with Gabriel about his book “The World Does Not Exist”.
He seems able and willing to question everything anyone says. I doubt that he will ever conclude anything about anything, especially about existentialism’s “There are no excuses”.
i stopped reading German, or any, philosophers after Schopenhauer.
as depressing as he may i think he got it right.
