The aim of the proposed research into contemporary philosophy is twofold: first, to analyse the conceptual and the methodological transformations within different currants, schools and approaches of contemporary philosophy in Slovenia and abroad. By examining in detail some of the displacements and productive misunderstandings between mainstream and its opposite in contemporary philosophy, this research brings to light the implications for contemporary philosophy of a radical putting into question of the meaning and the value of crucial notions of the traditional philosophy such as the subject, the object, the being, the reality, the essence, the truth, the reason, the totality, etc. Second, in view of the ongoing cultural, political, technological and scientific changes, this research aims at a radical reassessment of the conditions of possibility of philosophy today. In so doing, the research addresses some of the most productive attempts to reconstruct philosophy. Here emphasis is placed on the critique of the idea of the end of philosophy that undermines the very notion of the Enlightenment and reason itself and culminating in an accusation of philosophy for the crimes of the XXth century. On the other hand, however, by examining in detail the heterogeneous motivations that are at the basis of current attempts at the re-foundation of philosophy, this research culminates in a reassessment of the role of philosophy in contemporary world .
