Das Werk versteht sich als Beitrag sowohl zu einer philosophischen Anthropologie als auch zu einer kritischen Theorie der Moderne, darüber hinaus zu einer kritischen Rechts- und Demokratietheorie und zu einer Theorie personaler Freiheit. Und zumindest Bausteine sucht es zu einer kritischen Theorie von Technik und Umweltschutz, von Medizin und Erziehung, von Wirtschaft und Politik, nicht zuletzt zu einer Freiheitstheorie von Wissenschaft und Kunst.
