Radikal, provokativ und erhellend zugleich: Nagels berühmter Essay von 1974 ist einer der am häufigsten zitierten philosophischen Aufsätze des 20. Jahrhunderts. Kann ein Mensch wirklich verstehen, wie es ist, eine Fledermaus zu sein? Natürlich nicht. Er kann sich nur vorstellen, wie es sich anfühlen könnte.

Letztendlich zeigt Nagel damit dem Menschen in seiner Fähigkeit zu erkennen und mitzuempfinden seine Grenzen auf. Ulrich Diehl erklärt in einem Nachwort die besondere Bedeutung und spannende Wirkungsgeschichte des Textes.
