For none of the central survival problems of mankind, which
include the increase of the world population, limited
resources, transcultural communication problems and
information overload, convincing solution concepts exist so
far. The areas of tension mentioned are taken up in this
volume and placed in the context of overstrain and rebellion
of the individual and society. They are the impetus for
philosophical thinking and for the conceptualization of the
process-dynamic approach as a survival strategy that leads
to practical philosophy. Overcoming the borderline situation
shows „what man actually is and can become“ (Karl
Jaspers). Using numerous examples from the fields of
psychotherapy, artistic and political action, this book
shows that historical and phenomenological analysis needs to
be complemented by a process-dynamic approach.
