Genesis and validity (Genesis and Geltung) can be distinguished and even separated: genesis would be a historical or empirical question; and validity a question of pure reason. But genealogy in Nietzsche's tradition has challenged this separation. What is the validity of genesis; and what is the genesis of validity? The constellation of genesis and validity are to be analysed. Therefore the theological background has to be remembered: the »original« identity of genesis and validity (in the narration of creation like in salvation). This imaginary identity is dissociated in history. That is why genesis and validity are given »for us« only in difference. Than the pretention of identity is always a little imaginary: may it be the genealogical idea (the genesis is the validity) or vice versa the idea of pure reasons (validity is indifferent to genesis). Beyond the pretention of identity or separation, it is suggested to look for dialectic and furthermore chiastic relations of validity and genesis. Than the question arises: who is in position to draw the distinction between them? Who is »the souvereign« to define the limits of genesis and validity? Is their difference a question of genesis or a question of pure reasons? I suggest: the difference is made by symbolic power and interpretation, more exactly: the relation of genesis and validity is a question of »Deutungsmacht« (symbolic or interpretational power).

More about this publication?
  • The Journal for Cultural Philosophy (Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie, "ZKPh") is dedicated to the interface between philosophy, cultural theory and history. It is a forum for writers who interpret the concept of culture as a genuine philosophical topic and who seek to investigate topics concerning problems or paradigmatical aspects of the philosophy of culture. Each volume deals with a special theme.

    Die "Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie" widmet sich der Schnittstelle zwischen Philosophie und Kulturwissenschaften. Entscheidend ist dabei der Versuch, "Kultur" als eigenständiges Konzept zu begründen – also nicht bloß als Sammelname oder Themenfeld. Dementsprechend ist die "Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie" ein Forum für Beiträge, die den Begriff der Kultur als genuin philosophischen Gegenstand begreifen und zur Profilierung des Kulturellen und seiner Paradigmatik beitragen wollen. Der Kulturwirklichkeit ebenso verpflichtet wie der Anstrengung des Begriffs, muß die Kulturphilosophie und muß auch die Zeitschrift als ein offenes Projekt angelegt werden. Als aktuelles, den Nachbarfächern gegenüber aufgeschlossenes Unternehmen versteht sich die Kulturphilosophie zugleich von ihren Grenzen her und öffnet sich einem Reflexionsraum, den sie mit der Ideen- und Wissensgeschichte, der Kultursemiotik und den cultural studies teilt.
