Social Questions

The social question is a central theme in the biography of Karl Köng and therefore appears in all sections in various ways.


One could say that he wanted to develop not only a social art, but also a social "Gesamtkunstwerk" (holistic work of art). For a community to become a healing one, it must first and foremost include the artistic realm.
This section deals with questions of social life and community building. In the volume "Becoming Human – a Social Task" we have summarized King's work on the social threefolding.

Der Charisma-Faktor, Book by Kurt Becker (only in German)

Being happy with Sisyphos

To live charismatically means to recognize the destiny of one's own life, to follow this destiny and thus to follow a path which only one on it's own is able to walk. Ironically, the tragic Sisyphus becomes for Kurt E. Becker to the charismatic individualist of modernity, which rises together with others to what no individual creates.
