Gefühle am Ende der Welt Folge 7: RESSENTIMENT Mit: Jorinde Schulz und Ulrich Engel OP


Gesprächsreihe von und mit Henrike Kohpeiß, Philipp Wüschner und Gästen

Whether it is possible to live without resentment is not clear. The urge to hold other people responsible for one’s own suffering seems sometimes justified, is often unjustified, and most of the time pointless. Resentment overwhelms us when things get rough and we don’t seem to be able to do something about it. But these feelings are not as innocent as they may seem – they have severe political consequences and collectively produce scapegoats. The history of the concept of resentment demands high standards from the individual – dissociate yourself from the pain (Stoa); abstain from narrow-mindedness (Nietzsche); embody/embrace the wound (Deleuze) – and most of all: stop whining! But what do we really have at our disposal to counter resentment, other than high demands? How would a world look like, if the rage against the social conditions was indeed absorbed and adopted with a more generous, gentle attitude in order to transform it into the care of the self and others?  And when will the indignation at having been treated unjustly finally transform into the realization that the world as it is must change?
