A blog dedicated to understanding Hans Blumenberg's Höhlenausgänge.

Direction

This morning I realized the below post is really dry and lacking in direction -- I'm sort of going at this sequentially because I don't understand the text well enough to take a bird's-eye view. I will just say that the statement I'm aiming right now to clarify, is Blumenberg's assertion in the seventh essay of the book that "The City is a recapitulation of the Cave by other means." This seems to me like one of the most noteworthy ideas I've ever read, and I want to understand why. So right now I'm just laying the groundwork, or rather trying to understand how Blumenberg is doing so.
