Philosophy and bewitching problems

  • In dialogue

Some problems are very easy to solve. In other cases, it’s like jinxed: every solution only creates another problem. Unfortunately, most political problems are just such jinxed problems; there is no simple, right solution. On top of that, each solution is also evaluated from different perspectives.

This raises the following questions, among others: How are reasonable politics and reasonable criticism still possible in the face of this complexity? How does society imagine the “right” way to deal with problems in the first place, and how are these reflected in the media, movies and video games?
