Abstract

When I think about our time, I may also think about the cunning of reason (Hegel’s List der Vernunft) —might the cunning of reason yet save us? But at once then, there also arises a corrective, a sobering notion — that of the reason of cunning or perhaps the cunning of unreason. I am now holding on to all this, trying to find out what in our time — if anything — could be meant by the cunning of reason, why the thought of it should also suggest the thought of the reason of cunning or of the cunning of unreason, what the meanings of all of these might be.
