“During the 20th century, the filter of eternity which stabilised our world view for so long gradually fell away. And this is undoubtedly a genuinely modern phenomenon: the changes have accelerated so much that they become noticeable within our own lifetimes.”
(Peter Sloterdijk “Die Sitten verwildern, die Gerechtigkeit ist obdachlos [Morals are running wild, justice is homeless]”, NZZ, 2018)
