Short summary
This paper critically examines critical geography’s moralizing high ground. The paper makes this critique through a detour via the analyse of the critical gesture of the Greek cynics that the philosophers Foucault and Sloterdijk take to be a political practice of provocative truth-telling: For Foucault and Sloterdijk, the cynics are anti-dogmatic, anti-theoretical and anti-scholastic. I will argue, however, that the cynic is in danger of speaking from the moral high ground of an anti-critique.
