This obvious lack, probability argues, isn't a failure of the textual content yet of scholarly notion. He advances a unmarried thesis: that Plato intentionally provides eristiccontentious debateas the antithesis to his personal philosophical strategy. as soon as this thesis is permitted, the "hidden" goal of the Euthydemus turns into occur: Plato has used the party of his discussion to mix a brilliantly crafted parody of sophistic antilogy with a refined but forceful exhortation designed to cajole we all to pursue advantage and to like knowledge.

Download Digital_Pausen Konturen einer flüchtigen Gegenwart by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht PDF

By Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht

In der digitalen Welt gibt es keine Pausen. Wer sich auch nur für einen second abkoppelt, der riskiert, den Anschluss zu verlieren. Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht lässt sich vom Strom des Digitalen nicht fortreißen. Seit er sich 2011 darauf einließ, einen weblog für die Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung zu schreiben, nutzt er das digitale layout als Ort der Kontemplation und intellektuellen Auseinandersetzung. Kompaktheit und Rhythmus dieser Gattung eröffnen ihm die Möglichkeit, für seine Leser Phänomene des Alltags zu analysieren und philosophische Fragestellungen zu entwickeln. Er setzt Zäsuren und entdeckt Konturen in einer hochkomplexen und flüchtigen Gegenwart. Als provokativ erweist sich dabei die Sicht des Amerikaners Gumbrecht auf das Land und den Kontinent seiner Herkunft. Bei allen Gemeinsamkeiten geraten immer wieder Dissonanzen im Selbstverständnis der Zeitgenossen diesseits und jenseits des Atlantiks in den Blick. So wirkt dieser web publication wie ein Stachel im Fleisch, der uns Westeuropäer liebgewordene Gewohnheiten und konventionelle Erwartungen in Frage stellen lässt.

Download L'età dei libertini. Controstoria della filosofia III by Michel Onfray PDF

By Michel Onfray

Nel terzo quantity della sua Controstoria, Michel Onfray affronta los angeles filosofia del Seicento: il Grand Siècle, il secolo di Richelieu e dell'assolutismo, di Luigi XIV e di Versailles. Dopo aver tentato di liberare l. a. filosofia antica dell'egemonia platonica e persino quella cristina da una lettura ascetica, qui Onfray iesce a sottrarre il Seicento all'ipoteca spiritualistic e moderata dei vari Descartes e Pascal, consistent with mettere in luce l. a. natura profondamente sovversiva - anticipatrice delle istanze rivoluzionarie poi realizzate dall'Illuminismo e dall'89 - di un gruppo di teorici che del libero pensiero fecero los angeles loro bandiera. Vengono così reinterpretate in una chiave originale e non solo determine word alla storiografia ufficiale come Gassendi e Spinoza (ridimensionato il primo, snodo fondamentlae della filosofia moderna il secondo), ma sopratutto ci vengono restituiti in tutta l. a. loro grandezza personaggi di eccezionale significato finalmente salvati dalla condanna moralistica o addirittura dall'oblio come Charron, los angeles Mothe Le Vayer, Saint-Evreond, Cyrano de Bergerac. Il lettore sarà sicuramente sorpreso nello scoprire l. a. potenza intelluttuale di quest'ultimo: nel personaggio conosciuto in step with l. a. commedia di Rostand, Onfray ritrova l. a. forza dissacrante e liberatoria del riso, un riso che "apre abissi, spacca il mondo in due, libera una luce di cui si illumina tutto il pensiero progressista degno di questo nome". Potremo così riscoprire una costellazione di filosofi che, benchè cristiani, si sono formati alla lezione di Montaigne, ai racconti di viaggio degli scopritori del Nuovo Mondo, ai gabinetti di curiosità, al gusto consistent with il bizzarro tipico dell'età barocca.
