Summary/Abstract: The monograph Krise og medansvar. Politiske Småskrifter (Crisis and Co-responsibility. Short Political Writings) is one of the last monographs of the internationally recognized philosopher Gunnar Skirbekk who begins his academic career as a research assistant for Herbert Marcuse and Avrum Stroll at the University of California. Regardless that the “short political writings” form was inspired by Habermas, Skirbekk’s “short writings” display much more than simply the incorporation of intellectual impulses from Habermas and other significant intellectuals. By referring to Foucault, Skirbekk defines his approach as a matter of adopting an “ideology-critical archeology’”, while analyzing the genealogy of different phenomena such as politics and expertise, religion and modernity, culture and identity, philosophy and eco-ethics
