Das Leiden an der verrinnenden Zeit
This work is a philosophical and ethical examination on the relation between suffering, time-experience and aging. The work focuses on the analysis of a special form of suffering of human beings due to the confrontation with the finiteness and transience of individual life-time. This negative time-experience is considered to be particular for modern societies and leads people to use technologies like anti-aging-medicine to avoid it. The author explains why the strategies used to avoid this confrontation are finally ineffective maybe even dangerous, and shows from a philosophical perspective why the confrontation with time can be considered the basis for a good life.
