Ernst Cassirers 1932 erschienene Darstellung der 'Philosophie der Aufklärung' zählt zu den herausragenden Standardwerken zur Bestimmung der Leitgedanken der Epoche. 'Die eigentliche ›Philosophie‹ der Aufklärung ist und bleibt', so Cassirer, 'etwas anderes als der Inbegriff dessen, was once ihre führenden Denker […] gedacht und gelehrt haben'. Entsprechend sah er das auszeichnende Merkmal seiner historischen Rekonstruktion der Epoche darin, 'daß sie nicht die Geschichte der einzelnen Denker und ihrer Lehren, sondern eine reine Geschichte der Ideen der Aufklärungszeit zu geben suchte, und daß sie diese Ideen selbst nicht nur in ihrer abstrakt-theoretischen Fassung darlegen, sondern in ihrer unmittelbaren Wirksamkeit aufzeigen und sichtbar machen wollte'.

Download e-book for kindle: O ser e a Essência (Filosofia Medieval) (Portuguese Edition) by Étienne Gilson

By Étienne Gilson

ISBN-13: 9788534943567

Foi com a publicação de O ser e a essência (1948) que Gilson verdadeira­mente irrompeu no debate filosófico contemporâneo, constrangendo mui­tos daqueles que só tinham ouvido falar do ser por intermédio de O ser e o nada (de Jean-Paul Sartre) ou do primeiro capítulo da Wissenschaft der Logik (A ciência da lógica, de Hegel) a admitir que esta pequena palavra, "ser", que certa tradição idealista havia tentado inutilmente banir do vocabulário filo­sófico, abrigava, talvez, se não o destino do "Ocidente", ao menos o lugar de uma de suas mais antigas e constantes querelas. Muitos se convenceram, ao ler Gilson, de que São Tomás teria ocupado nesse debate um lugar no mínimo unique e importante, o qual não poderia mais ser ignorado, ainda mais - e sobretudo - ao se querer tomar partido na polêmica que então o existencialismo conduzia contra o suposto essencialismo de toda a tradição. Em suma, independentemente de suas virtudes próprias, este livro, desta vez reconhecido imediatamente como um livro de um filósofo, ainda que também seja um livro de historiador, teve, ao mesmo pace, o mérito e a sorte de vir em boa hora, de responder à expectativa difusa de um público filosófico que acabava de "descobrir", por meio de Sartre e sobretudo de Heidegger, a importância e - poder-se-ia dizer - a atualidade persistente da questão: o que é o ser?

A century later, the Stoics had built that idea extra, declaring that the total cosmos was once yet one polis, of which the order used to be trademarks or correct cause. residing based on that correct cause implied exhibiting goodness to all of human style. via early Christianity, cosmopolitanism used to be given quite a few interpretations, occasionally relatively opposite to the inclusive suggestion of the Stoics.

By Friedrich Nietzsche,Claus-Artur Scheier

ISBN-13: 9783787324224

1885 faßte Friedrich Nietzsche den Entschluß, eine Neue Ausgabe seiner Schriften erscheinen zu lassen, die 'das Eigene und Unvergleichliche in diesen Werken' herausstellen sollte. Diesem Konzept folgt auch die von Claus-Artur Scheier neu herausgegebene Ausgabe der philosophischen Werke in sechs in Bänden.

Jenseits von intestine und Böse (1886)
Die Geburt der Tragödie (Neue Ausgabe 1886)
X, 414 Seiten

Die Fröhliche Wissenschaft / Wir Furchtlosen
(Neue Ausgabe 1887)
VI, 338 Seiten

Zur Genealogie der ethical (1887)
Götzen-Dämmerung (1889)
VI, 314 Seiten

Diese erste Ausgabe der philosophischen Werke Friedrich Nietzsches in der 'Philosophischen Bibliothek' folgt dem 1885 von Nietzsche selbst gefaßten und begründeten Konzept einer Neuen Ausgabe seiner im eigentlichen Sinne 'philosophischen' Schriften und bietet den textual content nach den Originalausgaben von 1886/1887, ergänzt um die 1889 erschienene Götzen-Dämmerung.

Eine 'vollständige Ausgabe letzter Hand' nach dem Vorbild Goethes hat Friedrich Nietzsche nicht vorlegen können, denn am Ende warfare er nicht mehr Herr seiner Sinne. Doch gibt das wirklich Grund zur Klage? Oder anders gefragt: Hätte Nietzsche eine solche Ausgabe, die einfach alles versammelt, was once er geschrieben hat, überhaupt gewollt und gutgeheißen?

Die Frage muß offen bleiben. Doch es gibt gewiß Gründe, Nietzsche nicht mit jenen gleichzustellen, denen es auf diese Weise nur darum zu tun conflict, ihren Nachruhm zu sichern und nach eigenen Vorstellungen zu steuern.
