Spanish term or phrase: quinismo
Here is the original sentence ... for what it is worth.

"Segun Sloterdijk, el quinismo es respuesta a la quiebra de una creencia, de una certeza."

A Google search got me loads of pages mentioning the word, but none had anything about what the damn thing is in English..

Any help welcome,

Cheers,

Berni

kynism
Explanation:
Here you go:

This recurrence is clearly visible in Sloterdijk, who reintroduced the notion of kynism and opposed it to the notion of cynism. I will limit myself to a few comments upon the recurrence of this ideal in Foucault's work.

There may be other info. of use to you at this link.

Explanation:
Kynismo ético (cinismo; según entendemos en castellano gracias a la pobre traducción de la fonética anglosajona de la cual deriva la que utilizamos). En este acápite, quizá algo polémico, externamos nuestra opinión de que el tono sutilmente irónico y sarcástico de muchas de las afirmaciones realizadas durante el curso, casi iconoclastas, además de otorgarle a las lecciones un estímulo adicional que particularmente encontramos muy agradable, entraña una honda preocupación ética. Preocupación ausente en muchos otros cursos doctorales y que consiste en el interés por hallar qué contenido real y práctico tienen algunas instituciones jurídicas. Instituciones veneradas por la opinión jurídica e inclusive mimadas por las leyes, que sin embargo entrañan mucho riesgo para los ciudadanos, quienes se encuentran a merced de una élite de funcionarios públicos investidos con poderes que no siempre son ejercidos de manera justa e igualitaria.
