Subsequent to a dialogue concerning the German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk’s Regeln für den Menschenpark (“Rules for the Human Park”), the following interview with Éric Alliez introduces the reader to Sloterdijk’s appreciation of contemporary cultural politics. However, the focal points of the interview are Sloterdijk’s core cultural conception of Nietzschean-inﬂected thought and his own Sphere Theory, his ideas on immunization, notions of ecology, “anthropotechnics,” and the question of Being. As these central themes of Sloterdijk’s current work and the title of this interview indicate, Sloterdijk’s belief in “living hot, thinking coldly” is also considered by Alliez alongside Sloterdijk’s contribution to cultural and political theory.
