The artist and art theorist Bazon Brock (b. Stolp, Pomerania, 1936; lives and works in Wuppertal and Berlin) is professor emeritus of aesthetics and art education at Bergische Universität Wuppertal.
In this book, Bazon Brock expresses his gratitude to all those who have given him occasion to pay tribute to them over the decades: a man's dignity is rooted in his ability to dignify others, and therein lies the judicious individual's glory. The foremost form of tribute is critique; to deem another worthy of critique is to take him seriously, and critique grows out of the dispute of views rather than the assertion of true knowledge or knowledge of the truth. Truth may at best be divined from the ruins, the wreckage, the shards that remain. It is a rumor of ostracism, as the archaeologists of human life-worlds know.
