    Paradoxien der Autonomie. Freiheit und Gesetz I.Thomas Khurana & Christoph Menke (eds.) - 2019, 2nd ed. - Berlin, Germany: August Verlag.
    Der Gedanke, der sich in der modernen Idee der Autonomie verdichtet, ist ein doppelter: Die Figur der Autonomie enthält zugleich eine neue Auffassung von Normativität und eine eigene Konzeption von Freiheit. Dem Gedanken der Autonomie zufolge ist ein Gesetz, das wahrhaft normativ ist, eines, als dessen Urheber wir uns selbst betrachten können; und eine Freiheit, die im vollen Sinne wirklich ist, drückt sich in Gestalt eben solcher selbstgegebener Gesetze aus. Die Idee der Autonomie artikuliert so die Einsicht, dass man Freiheit (...)

  5. Hegel’s Theory of Second Nature.Christoph Menke - 2013 - Symposium: Canadian Journal of Continental Philosophy/Revue canadienne de philosophie continentale 17 (1):31-49.
    While in neo-Aristotelian conceptions of virtue and Bildung the concept of “second nature” describes the successful completion of human education, Hegel uses this term in order to analyze the irresolvably ambiguous, even conflictive nature of spirit. Spirit can only realize itself, in creating (1) a second nature as an order of freedom, by losing itself, in creating (2) a second nature—an order of externality, ruled by the unconscious automatisms of habit. In the second meaning of the term, “second nature” refers (...)

  7. Critique of rights.Christoph Menke - 2020 - Medford, MA: Polity.
    The declaration of equal rights arguably created the modern political community. But this act of empowering individuals caused the disempowering of the political community. Exposing this, Menke opens up a new way of understanding rights that no longer involves the disempowering of the political community.

    Autonomie und Befreiung.Christoph Menke - 2010 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 58 (5):675-694.
    The „left Hegelian” interpretation of Hegel′s theory of Sittlichkeit has shown that the claim of the concept of autonomy to establish an internal connection between normativity and freedom can only be carried out, if the subject of autonomy is defined by its participation in social practices. While the left Hegelian interpretation thereby solves the paradoxes of the Kantian tradition of understanding autonomy, it is destined to repeat the paradoxical structure of autonomy in a new and fundamental form. This follows from (...)

  17. The "Aporias of Human Rights" and the "One Human Right": Regarding the Coherence of Hannah Arendt's Argument.Christoph Menke - 2007 - Social Research: An International Quarterly 73:739-762.
    Hannah Arendt's 1949 essay on the critique of human rights was published in English and German in the same year under two quite different titles: while in English the title asks the skeptical question: "'The Rights of Man'. What Are They?", the German title claims: "Es gibt nur ein einziges Menschenrecht " - "there is only one human right". The article shows that the English title's skepticism and the German title's assertion represent two internally connected moves of Arendt's argument. For (...)

    This essay examines how Joseph Beuys uses the social plastic concept (›soziale Plastik‹) to think about the relationship between art and democracy. To this end, the first part analyzes the oppositions that define this concept in order to read them as the basic determinations of a dialectical concept of democracy. Against this background, the second part of the essay deals with how Beuys understands the contribution of art to democracy. In doing so, Beuys’ statement ›Every man is an artist‹ is (...)

    Tragic Play: Irony and Theater from Sophocles to Beckett.Christoph Menke - 2009 - Columbia University Press.
    _Tragic Play_ explores the deep philosophical significance of classic and modern tragedies in order to cast light on the tragic dimensions of contemporary experience. Romanticism, it has often been claimed, brought tragedy to an end, making modernity the age _after_ tragedy. Christoph Menke opposes this modernist prejudice by arguing that tragedy remains alive in the present in the distinctively new form of the playful, ironic, and self-consciously performative. Through close readings of plays by William Shakespeare, Samuel Beckett, Heiner Müller, and (...)

    Weder Rawls noch Adorno? Raymond Geuss′ Programm einer „realistischen“ Philosophie.Christoph Menke - 2010 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 58 (3):445-455.
    In Philosophy and Real Politics, Raymond Geuss outlines the program of a “realistic” investigation of politics and develops a critique of the normativistic approach that defines the mainstream of contemporary analytic political philosophy. The paper discusses the question of how these two elements, “realism” and “critique”, are related in Geuss. Drawing on some of Geuss′ considerations in Outside Ethics the paper argues that the very existence of “real politics” depends on the critique of those normativistic forms of thinking that threaten (...)

    Wider Willen, oder: Wie man nicht recht haben wollen kann.Christoph Menke - 2023 - Zeitschrift für Ästhetik Und Allgemeine Kunstwissenschaft 68 (2):24-30.
    Is wanting not to be right – the endeavor that Martin Seel not only explores and defends but practices in his eponymous book (›Nichtrechthabenwollen‹) – the expression of a paradox, a self-contradictory undertaking? It is indeed if to want something means to judge it as right. The text proposes to understand the wanting Martin Seel speaks of differently. This can be done with the help of the figure of »active passivity,« in which Seel sees the essential thought of Adorno.

    Aesthetic reflection and its ethical significance: A critique of the Kantian solution.Christoph Menke - 2008 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 34 (1-2):51-63.
    In the Critique of Judgment, Kant quotes the traditional view of the relation between the ethical and the aesthetical ('the beautiful is the symbol of the morally good'). However, he elaborates this view in a radically new way: as equivalence between two forms of reflection, between ethical and aesthetic reflection. The article distinguishes three different aspects of aesthetic reflection in Kant and discusses their respective ethical meaning. It shows the unresolved tension between Kant's program of an 'aesthetics of autonomy' on (...)

    The idea of Geistesgeschichte was an idealistic program. The critique of this program, however, leaves us with the task of thinking the historicity of spirit: There is no history without spirit. This thesis requires a materialist explanation.

    The presence of tragedy.Christoph Menke - 2004 - Critical Horizons 5 (1):201-225.
    This paper argues that modernity can only be properly understood when tragedy is viewed as one of the conditions internal to it. Modernity and tragedy are not mutually exclusive, as Hegel and Schlegel, for example both argue, but mutually inclusive. Each is determined by the other—as tragic modernity and as modern tragedy.

    Parallax: the dialectics of mind and world.Dominik Finkelde, Slavoj Žižek & Christoph Menke (eds.) - 2021 - New York, NY, USA: Bloomsbury Academic.
    Parallax, or the change in the position of an object viewed along two different lines of sight and more precisely, the assumption that this adjustment is not only due to a change of focus, but a change in that object's ontological status has been a key philosophical concept throughout history. Building upon Slavoj Žižek's The Parallax View, this volume shows how parallax is used as a figure of thought that proves how the incompatibility between the physical and the theoretical touches (...)

    The Value of Critique: Exploring the Interrelations of Value, Critique, and Artistic Labour.Isabelle Graw & Christoph Menke (eds.) - 2019 - Frankfurt: Campus Verlag.
    The Value of Critique casts its gaze on the two dominant modes of passing judgment in art--critique and value. The act of critique has long held sway in the world of art theory but has recently been increasingly abandoned in favor of evaluation, which advocates alternate modes of judgment aimed at finding the intrinsic "value" of a given work rather than picking apart its intentions and relative success. This book's contributors explore the relationship between these two practices, finding that one (...)
