Social Theory and Practice 33 (3):411-429 (2007)
|Abstract||This paper examines an account of authenticity offered by Karl Jaspers against an ideal of authenticity attributed to Johann Herder in an effort to find out which, if either, can be of service to a plausible theory of autonomous agency. I argue that the Herderian ideal informs the view of authenticity that has come to dominate current discussion, but that it has less to do with autonomy than we think. The situations of David Kaczynski, younger brother of Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, and that of the acclaimed German novelist Günter Grass, are examined as cases studies.|
