    Through the whole history of mankind philosophers have taken pride in being reasonable agents. Rüdiger Bittner, one of the internationally most renowned German philosophers and winner of the Gottlob Frege award 2011, has developed a surprisingly different picture: We are much more part than master of the universe. The volume discusses this challenging view from various angles of practical philosophy including the aesthetics of film and theater.
