Humes ´´Enquiry´´ gehört zu den wichtigsten Werken des großen schottischen Philosophen und ist einer der Klassiker der Philosophiegeschichte: Kant wurde nach seiner eigenen Aussage von diesem Werk aus seinem ´´dogmatischen Schlummer´´ geweckt und zu seiner kritischen Philosophie angeregt. In 12 Essays untersucht Hume verschiedenste Themen, die auch heute von Interesse sind, etwa Kausalität, den Skeptizismus, die Frage, ob wir frei oder determiniert sind oder ob es Wunder (bzw. letztlich: Religion) geben kann. Die zweisprachige Ausgabe gibt die vollständig durchgesehene klassische Übersetzung von Herbert Herring wieder und führt in Kommentar und Nachwort auf den neuesten Stand der Forschung.

Savonarola (1452-1498) saw it as his highest priority to substantiate Christianitys claim to truth, an aspect that has hitherto found scant attention. Although in his youth he had himself been tempted to exchange Catholic Christianity for a neo-Epicurean view of the world, he spent his whole life seeking arguments for the truth of the faith. Following from Aristotelian empiricism and the lines of scientific enquiry, he attempts at an inductive proof for the truth of Christianity with the argument that the observation of Christians ethical conduct and the causal analysis of these perceptual data allows one to conclude that the faith motivating such behaviour is true. Habilitationsschrift. Der Autor ist Privatdozent für Kirchengeschichte an der Evangelisch-theologischen Fakultät der Universität Tübingen und Verfasser mehrerer Veröffentlichungen zur neuzeitlichen Theologiegeschichte.

Emperor Charles V: 1500 - 1558
50,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The world of the first half of the sixteenth century was exceptionally dynamic. Voyages of discovery made the world larger; science and technology were revolutionized; Christian thought underwent a powerful renewal; the population and economy grew. And in the midst of this constellation ofchange, one man - the Emperor Charles V - ruled a conglomeration of territory more extensive than that previously held by any ruler in European history. What can one person, given an inordinate amount of power by quirk of fate, achieve? How much freedom did he in fact have? Did it help him reach his objectives? What unwanted results ensued from his actions? The relationship between the will of an individual and the power of structures in times ofsuch mutability is at the core of Blockman´s enquiry. He brings to the task a range of languages - without which it is scarcely possible to do justice to Charles´s widespread, linguistically diverse imperium - a keen awareness of the most recent findings in modern scholarship, and the fruits of aprofessional lifetime´s reflection.

The Venetian Origins of the Commedia Dell´Arte
42,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Venetian Origins of the Commedia dell´Arte is a striking new enquiry into the late-Renaissance stirrings of professional secular comedy in Venice, and their connection to the development of what came to be known as the Commedia dell´Arte. The book contends that through a symbiotic collaboration between patrician amateurs and plebeian professionals, innovative forms of comedy developed in the Venice region, fusing ´high´ and ´low´ culture in a provocative mix that had a truly mass appeal. Rich with anecdotes, diary entries and literary - often ribald - comic passages, Peter Jordan´s central argument has important implications for the study of Venetian art, popular theatre and European cultural history.

This book clarifies the interrelationship between optics, vision and perspective before the Classical Age, examining binocularity in particular. The author shows how binocular vision was one of the key juncture points between the three concepts and readers will see how important it is to understand the approach that scholars once took. In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the concept of Perspectiva - the Latin word for optics - encompassed many areas of enquiry that had been viewed since antiquity as interconnected, but which afterwards were separated: optics was incorporated into the field of physics (i.e., physical and geometrical optics), vision came to be regarded as the sum of various psycho-physiological mechanisms involved in the way the eye operates (i.e., physiological optics and psychology of vision) and the word perspective was reserved for the mathematical representation of the external world (i.e., linear perspective). The author shows how this division, which emerged as a result of the spread of the sciences in classical Europe, turns out to be an anachronism if we confront certain facts from the immediately preceding periods. It is essential to take into account the way medieval scholars posed the problem - which included all facets of the Latin word perspectiva - when exploring the events of this period. This book will appeal to a broad readership, from philosophers and historians of science, to those working in geometry, optics, ophthalmology and architecture. Dominique Raynaud is a science historian at the Université of Grenoble Alpes, France. He has published various articles and books in the field, among them are Optics and the Rise of Perspective. A Study in Network Knowledge Diffusion (Oxford, 2014) and Scientific Controversies. A Socio-historical Perspective on the Advancement of Science (New Brunswick, 2015).

This book provides practical background information and teachings on meditation primarily for a Western audience. Through meditation, compassionately focused actions, and group sharing the Heart centre is awakened and Bodhicitta is manifested. For this to occur the development of wisdom is essential. The associated process concerning the path of Initiation into the Mysteries of being/non-being, and the planetary Head centre (Shambhala) shall be provided. The subtleties of the Initiation path will be revealed through an esoteric interpretation of passages from the Bible, as the New Testament constitutes a major text on this subject. This philosophy is complimentary to the Buddhist foundation presented in the previous volumes of this series. A Treatise on Mind Outline Volume 1 The ´´Self´´ or ´´Non-self´´ in Buddhism Volume 2 Considerations of Mind-A Buddhist Enquiry Volume 3 The Buddha-Womb and the Way to Liberation Volume 4 Mandalas: Their Nature and Development Volume 5 An Esoteric Exposition of the Bardo Thödol Volume 6 Meditation and the Initiation Process Volume 7 The Constitution of Shambhala Whilst the numbers of Buddhists are growing in the world, the techniques and discourses of Buddhism have not changed to meet the radically different conditions of the contemporary world. Thus Buddhism needs a true restorative flowering to rival that of the renaissance of debate and innovative thinking of the early post-Nagarjunian era. In order to achieve this it must synthesise the present wealth of scientific knowledge, alongside the best of the Western world´s philosophical output - this is the primary task of this seven volume treatise. It is principally a study of the complex interrelationship between mind and phenomena, from the gross to the subtle-the physical, psychic, supersensory and supernal. This entails an explanation of how mind incorporates all phenomena in its modus operandi, and how eventually that mind is liberated from it, thereby becoming awakened.
