Filozofija I Društvo 18 (3):31-39 (2007)

The intention of this paper is to revisit, once again the question asked by Adorno and Habermas and other contemporary thinkers under different headings few decades ago. The author is suggesting that nowadays philosophy requires a final departure from the idea of having single and perennial face, and that this would not only allow, but also enable philosophy to test its various faces freely, that is, without norm or limit set in advance. At the same time, by creating such?liberal? climate philosophy would no longer be frightened by the possible answer, and hence would no longer dramatize the very question of?why still??. Even if philosophy turns out to be far less than the mission it once bestowed upon itself. Namera ovog rada je da jos jedanput iznova propita samo ono pitanje statusa filozofije koje su unazad nekoliko decenija postavili Adorno i Habermas, kao i drugi savremeni mislioci u drugacijim formulacijama. Autor sugerise da filozofija danas potrebuje konacni raskid sa idejom posedovanja jednog i perenijskog lika - sto bi joj ne samo dozvolilo, nego upravo i omogucilo da bez norme i granice postavljene unapred, slobodno iskusa svoje razlicite likove. U isto vreme, stvaranjem ovakve "liberalne" atmosfere u pogledu vlastitog odredjenja i samorazumevanja, ona vise ne bi bila zastrasena mogucim odgovorom, pa stoga vise ne bi ni dramatizovala samo pitanje "cemu jos?". Cak i ukoliko se posle vlastitog dovodjenja u pitanje ispostavi da je njeno znacenje mnogo manje nego ona misija koju je jednom sebi namenila.
