The Open: Man and Animal

The end of human history is an event that has been foreseen or announced by both messianics and dialecticians. But who is the protagonist of that history that is coming?or has come?to a close? What is man? How did he come on the scene? And how has he maintained his privileged place as the master of, or first among, the animals?In The Open, contemporary Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben considers the ways in which the ?human? has been thought of as either a distinct and superior type of animal, or a kind of being that is essentially different from animal altogether. In an argument that ranges from ancient Greek, Christian, and Jewish texts to twentieth-century thinkers such as Heidegger, Benjamin, and Kojève, Agamben examines the ways in which the distinction between man and animal has been manufactured by the logical presuppositions of Western thought, and he investigates the profound implications that the man/animal distinction has had for disciplines as seemingly disparate as philosophy, law, anthropology, medicine, and politics.

Academic Theories of Generation in the Renaissance
134,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume deals with philosophically grounded theories of animal generation as found in two different traditions: one, deriving primarily from Aristotelian natural philosophy and specifically from his Generation of Animals ; and another, deriving from two related medical traditions, the Hippocratic and the Galenic. The book contains a classification and critique of works that touch on the history of embryology and animal generation written before 1980. It also contains translations of key sections of the works on which it is focused. It looks at two different scholarly communities: the physicians (medici) and philosophers (philosophi), that share a set of textual resources and philosophical lineages, as well as a shared problem (explaining animal generation), but that nevertheless have different concerns and commitments. The book demonstrates how those working in these two traditions not only shared a common philosophical background in the arts curricula of the universities, but were in constant intercourse with each other. This book presents a test case of how scholarly communities differentiate themselves from each other through methods of argument, empirical investigation, and textual interpretations. It is all the more interesting because the two communities under investigation have so much in common and yet, in the end, are distinct in a number of important ways.

Early Modern Philosophers and the Renaissance L...

When does Renaissance philosophy end, and Early Modern philosophy begin? Do Renaissance philosophers have something in common, which distinguishes them from Early Modern philosophers? And ultimately, what defines the modernity of the Early Modern period, and what role did the Renaissance play in shaping it? The answers to these questions are not just chronological. This book challenges traditional constructions of these periods, which partly reflect the prejudice that the Renaissance was a literary and artistic phenomenon, rather than a philosophical phase. The essays in this book investigate how the legacy of Renaissance philosophers persisted in the following centuries through the direct encounters of subsequent generations with Renaissance philosophical texts. This volume treats Early Modern philosophers as joining their predecessors as conversation partners: the conversations in this book feature, among others, Girolamo Cardano and Henry More, Thomas Hobbes and Lorenzo Valla, Bernardino Telesio and Francis Bacon, René Descartes and Tommaso Campanella, Giulio Cesare Vanini and the anonymous Theophrastus redivivus. Cecilia Muratori received her PhD in the History of Philosophy from the universities of Jena and Urbino. Her revised dissertation was published in 2012 with the title Il primo filosofo tedesco. Il misticismo di Jakob Böhme nellinterpretazione hegeliana (to be published in English for Springer). From 2009 to 2013 she was Research Fellow at LMU Munich, working on a project entitled The Debate on the Soul of Animals in Renaissance Philosophy. In addition to several articles, two edited collections stem from this research: Ethical Perspectives on Animals in the Renaissance and Early Modern Period (ed. with Burkhard Dohm, Micrologus Library 2013) and The Animal Soul and the Human Mind: Renaissance Debates (Bruniana & Campanelliana 2013). She is currently a post-doctoral research fellow in the Italian Department at the University of Warwick. Gianni Paganini is Full Professor of History of Philosophy at the Università del Piemonte Orientale Amedeo Avogadro. He has won the prestigious Prize of the Accademia dei Lincei for Philosophy (awarded every ten years for the whole of the scholarly production over the past decade). For his most recent monograph, entitled Skepsis. Le débat des modernes sur le scepticisme, he was awarded the PRIX La Bruyère 2009 pour la littérature et la philosophie, médaille dargent, de lAcadémie Française. His monographs and studies in the history of modern philosophy, with particular focus on the sceptical tradition and libertine culture, have been accompanied by the publication of several editions of texts (notably of the anonymous Theophrastus redivivus, of Hobbes De motu, loco et tempore, and of Humes Dialogues, with Italian translation). He is a member of international advisory boards (such as International Archives of the History of Ideas, Bruniana&Campanelliana and La Lettre Clandestine).
