Abstract

This essay serves as a general introduction to the volume. It contextualizes, problematizes, and theorizes Brecht given the grim realities of our present day. Expounding on Brecht’s idea that dark times call for extraordinary virtues, it explores the importance of the project of philosophizing Brecht now and argues that Brecht offers un-foreclosed and liberating possibilities which are rendered through his willingness to perplex, empiricism and practical attitude toward philosophy.
