alle geistig/philosophische Durchdringung der Menschenwelt wird nicht ausreichen, die Menschenwelt vor sich selbst zu retten.
 
Relativität der "Erkenntnis" ---- Die Menschheit macht immer noch dieselben Fehler.
 
Schlimmer noch: Neue Fehler wurden und werden generiert.

Hier trifft die Philosophie die Religion wieder...
 
Was für eine Ironie der Geschichte !

Story
Tagline
Philosopher of science, technology, art and music, as well as ancient philosophy.
Introduction

Born 14 November 1956 in New York City, Babette Babich studied the life sciences at SUNY Stony Brook before experiencing a change of heart (both on theoretical or methodological grounds and considering the deadly harm done to animals by biological research at all levels).  She did graduate work in philosophy in Boston, Tübingen, and Berlin as well as Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium.  Since 1989, she has taught at Fordham University in New York, since 1999 as full professor of philosophy. 

Babette Babich writes on continental philosophy of science and technolology in addition to the philosophy of art and the culture of the museum, on postmodern musicology as well as politics (especially academic politics in professional philosophy with respect to the analytic-continental “divide” in philosophy), and philosophy of technology including political themes and globalization/sustainable development. She also writes on ancient authors (Empedocles/Lucian/Pliny) and on the topic of life-size Greek bronze statues. She has taught at Boston College, Stony Brook, Marquette University, Georgetown University, the Eberhard-Karls-University in Tübingen, Stony Brook University in Manhattan, the University of California at San Diego, etc. A three-time Fulbright Fellow, she has lectured throughout Europe and North America, including four public lectures in Weimar as an invited Fellow of the Kolleg-Friedrich-Nietzsche. She is currently Executive Director of the Nietzsche Society in the United States (est.1978) and Executive Editor of the journal, New Nietzsche Studies (est. 1996)  She is inordinately fond of cats, hedgehogs, crows, hawks, hummingbirds, otters, and squirrels, the red, the grey, and the black.
