Un nuevo Platón emerge de las cuestiones que laten en este libro.

Emilio Lledó es un filósofo capaz de otorgar a l. a. filosofía una dimensión práctica y de construir puentes entre los filósofos clásicos y nosotros. Su vocación docente consigue que sus libros estén al alcance de cualquier lector interesado en l. a. filosofía, el lenguaje y los angeles moral.

Filosofía como meditación sobre el lenguaje y subraya l. a. tendencia traditional del ser humano hacia l. a. comunicación. [...] Hace suya l. a. razón ilustrada a través de un diálogo que impulsa l. a. convivencia en libertad y democracia.» Del acta del Jurado del premio Princesa de Asturias

By Jane O. Newman

In Benjamin's Library, Jane O. Newman bargains, for the 1st time in any language, a examining of Walter Benjamin's notoriously opaque paintings, beginning of the German Tragic Drama that systematically attends to its position in discussions of the Baroque in Benjamin's day. bearing in mind the literary and cultural contexts of Benjamin's paintings, Newman recovers Benjamin’s courting to the ideologically loaded readings of the literature and political idea of the seventeenth-century Baroque that abounded in Germany throughout the political and financial crises of the Weimar years.

This operating version of the method of disciplinary self-reflection might be famous as itself a milestone in that process."—Citation from the 2012 Committee of the Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize for experiences in Germanic Languages and Literatures (Modern Language Association)

"Newman's research deals an astonishingly thorough reconstruction of the Trauerspiel book’s permitting highbrow stipulations, paying detailed recognition to the debates in artwork historical past, literary background, and theology because the 19th century and round international warfare I. . . . Newman’s provocative learn bargains a picture of Benjamin that runs counter to the permitted model of the author because the quintessentially cosmopolitan, border-crossing highbrow . . .

Download Castoriadis's Ontology: Being and Creation (Perspectives in by Suzi Adams PDF

By Suzi Adams

This publication is the 1st systematic reconstruction of Castoriadis' philosophical trajectory. It severely translates the inner shifts in Castoriadis' ontology via reconsideration of the traditional troublesome of 'human institution' (nomos) and 'nature' (physis), at the one hand, and the query of 'being' and 'creation', at the different. not like the order of physis, the order of nomos performed no significant function within the improvement of western proposal: the 1st a part of the e-book means that Castoriadis sought to therapy this along with his elucidation of the social-historical because the sector of being elusive to the determinist imaginary of inherited philosophy. This ontological flip was once introduced with the ebook of his magnum opus The Imaginary establishment of Society (first released in 1975) that is reconstructed as Castoriadis' lengthy trip via nomos through 4 interconnected domain names: ontological, epistemological, anthropological, and hermeneutical respectively. using archival resources, the second one 1/2 the e-book reconstructs a moment ontological shift in Castoriadis' proposal that happened in the course of the Nineteen Eighties. right here it argues that Castoriadis extends his idea of 'ontological creation' past the human realm and into nature. This circulation has implications for his total ontology and indications a shift in the direction of a basic ontology of artistic physis. The expanding ontological value of physis is mentioned extra in chapters on aim wisdom, the dwelling being, and philosophical cosmology. It means that the realm horizon types an inescapable interpretative context of cultural articulation - within the double experience of Merleau-Ponty's mise en forme du monde - within which physis could be elucidated because the flooring of chance, in addition to some degree of fruits for nomos within the circle of interpretative production. The e-book contextualizes Castoriadis' inspiration inside broader philosophical and sociological traditions. particularly it situates his concept inside of French phenomenological currents that take both an ontological and/or a hermeneutical flip. It additionally areas a hermeneutic of modernity - that's, an interpretation that emphasizes the continued discussion among romantic and enlightenment articulations of the realm - on the centre of mirrored image. Castoriadis' reactivation of classical Greek resources is reinterpreted as a part of the continuing discussion among the ancients and the moderns, and extra greatly, as a part of the interpretative box of tensions that includes modernity.
