THE NEOLIBERAL DELUSION A RELIGIOUS-PHILOSOPHICAL CRITIQUE

THE NEOLIBERAL DELUSION A RELIGIOUS-PHILOSOPHICAL CRITIQUE Since the outburst of the financial-economic crisis in 2008, there has been quite some public discussion about the failure of neoliberal policies since the 1980s. Much less attention has been paid to its ideological character. Meanwhile, neoliberalism is still there, guiding the course of societies, organizations and individuals. We can observe the ‘strange non-death of neoliberalism’ (Crouch). In this article two questions are explored: (1) which key philosophical elements characterize neoliberalism, and (2) why has it got an ideological character? First, three statements on neoliberalism are formulated. Next, its anthropological and social-philosophical development is considered, taking advantage of Taylor’s grand narrative of modernity. Finally, the potential of a new architectonic critique of society is considered. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Philosophia Reformata Brill

Abstract

Since the outburst of the financial-economic crisis in 2008, there has been quite some public discussion about the failure of neoliberal policies since the 1980s. Much less attention has been paid to its ideological character. Meanwhile, neoliberalism is still there, guiding the course of societies, organizations and individuals. We can observe the ‘strange non-death of neoliberalism’ (Crouch). In this article two questions are explored: (1) which key philosophical elements characterize neoliberalism, and (2) why has it got an ideological character? First, three statements on neoliberalism are formulated. Next, its anthropological and social-philosophical development is considered, taking advantage of Taylor’s grand narrative of modernity. Finally, the potential of a new architectonic critique of society is considered.
