Participant: Ulrich A. Mauer
Ulrich A. Mauer studies philosophy and literature in Mainz.
"Philosophy for me is to reflect my world in language. I can more or less easily say anything, when I use some of the established games of lanuage. But I have to give up myself during this operation, to become an automatically speaking subject of the discourse. I don´t want to be such a zombie. How can I represent the singualrity of situations in language? How can I carry thing from prelanguage into language, when I´m trying to avoid becoming this cold, spectating, universal scientific subject of philosophy. I find myself situated in a field of pathos, overwhelmed, opened, vulnerable, searching for words."
