Philosophical Groundwork An overview of the chapters

Chapter Overview

Between the years 2005 and 2010, various philosophical texts were created that served as the foundation for the Peace Monument project called „Friedensmal". This collection of texts offers deep insights into the philosophical considerations that shape the project. From the importance of orientation and culture to the necessity of a paradigm shift in the culture of remembrance—here you will find a multitude of thoughts that have influenced the project from its beginnings to today. The texts address both the symbolism of the Friedensmal and the broader cultural and spiritual questions it raises.
