Plessner's conceptual investigations of "life"
Neither biological research nor speculative philosophy, Plessner's efforts, like those of Wittgenstein, were devoted towards conceptual investigation, in this case of the concept of "life'. The results of such investigation, I propose, amount to a structural narratology. "What do we mean when we talk of "life"'? "What are "humans"'? Answers to these questions involve narrative.
