One of the most persistent questions in the history of the thinking out of the sphere of political life pertains to the relation between the spectator and the actor in this sphere. This thesis asks: How is the relation between the actor, who participates in the political event from the particularity of their own unique position, and the spectator, who views and judges a political event distantly, universally, and disinterestedly, to be thought out?
