Sinopse da revista:
«It is with a fully informed perspective, braving the megalomania and short-sightedness he may have displayed in the public sphere, that we want to meet Sloterdijk “at the edges of the Empire,” that is, not so much through the reverse side of his political stances as in a spirit of immanent critique that attaches itself to his clinical and prophetic gestures. In these confines, it is appropriate for us to speak of the sizes [grandeurs] and measures, even the largesses of Sloterdijk: his figurative energy, his forays into a theory of elasticity, and his philosophical games that take on the appearance of a metaphysics of heights. These lines of force traversing his work account as much for its bad moves as for its best ones, and, without ignoring any of them, we take the side of the philosophical and ethical intensification of a living thought. Come what may.»
