every day

“Living in contradictions is what we experience every day. Why do we know so little about it?”

Gisela Febel

“If you think that acts of contradicting someone always need to point to better solutions, you haven’t really understood the idea of democratic critique.”

Martin Nonhoff
l’illusion d’une unité

“Foucault speaks of contradiction as l’illusion d’une unité.”

Ingo H. Warnke
hierarchy of norms

“If social contradictions are reflected in law, law cannot form a hierarchy of norms free of contradictions.”

Andreas Fischer-Lescano

“Contradictions need to be articulated in order to exist.”

Martin Nonhoff
