idea of democratic critique

“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
problem to be solved

“Contradiction is not primarily a problem to be solved but a motor we cannot do without.”

Martin Nonhoff
earthing

“Geography as a discipline stands for a certain worlding, if not earthing, of contradiction, in both theoretical and pracitcal respect.”

Julia Lossau
space

“According to Niklas Luhmann, space is a ‘special facility to negate contradictions’”.

Julia Lossau
paradox

“The basis of law is not an idea as a systematic unified principle but a paradox.”
