Pierre Gassendi und die Probleme des Empirismus
46,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Pierre Gassendi (1592-1655) ist Philosophen meist für seine Einwände gegen Descartes´ Meditationen bekannt und wird für seine Argumentation in dieser Schrift häufig eher belächelt. Dem außergewöhnlichen Denker Gassendi - der auch Professor für Mathematik war und mit Galileo korrespondierte - wird das in keiner Weise gerecht. Dennoch sind seine weiteren Schriften, einschließlich des Hauptwerks Syntagma philosophicum , bis auf einige ausgewählte Stellen bisher unübersetzt und werden sowohl im englisch- wie auch im deutschsprachigen Raum gerade erst erschlossen. Maria Seidl stellt nicht nur Gassendis philosophische Grundüberzeugungen dar, sondern untersucht diese auch im Hinblick auf ihre Argumentationskraft. Erstmals legt Seidl damit eine deutschsprachige Studie über das System vor, das Gassendi im Syntagma philosophicum entwickelt - und zeigt, dass seine Argumentation weit vielschichtiger ist, als ihm üblicherweise zugeschrieben wird.

The seventeenth century was one of the most fascinating and seminal periods in European history, particularly with regard to France. For it was here in France that the fruits of the earlier Renaissance were to be most brilliantly realized. Although the path of ´´greatness´´ for Louis XIV was prepared for him by men like Richelieu, Mazarin, Colbert, Turenne, and Louvois, it was during his reign that French preeminence in all facets of civilization emerged. In diplomacy, military science, art, architecture, literature, fashion, music, gastronomy, philosophy, physics, mathematics, engineering, and many other fields of endeavor, France stood at the pinnacle of human achievement. She was to remain there until the time of Napoleon. How did this hegemony come about? Laurence Bradford Packard, an eminent historian and scholar, traces the origins of absolute monarchy and tells us how the political evolution of inherited kingship came to be what it was by the time of Louis XIV. He explains the marvelous diplomatic machinery backed by military might that made France the most feared nation in Europe for almost 200 years. And he discusses the various intellectual controversies of the day which were to produce some of the greatest minds in Europe. There has never been a period which produced so many masters of language: Voltaire, Moliere, Racine, Corneille, Pascal, Bayle, Rochefoucauld, La Fontaine, Bossuet, and many others. And of course, there were Milton, Hobbes, and Locke in England. Packard gives them all their due and goes on to explore the other arts, as well. The book ends with an appraisal of the amazing progress Europeans, and especially the French, made in the scientific fields. The names are legendary: Descartes, Newton, Boyle, Leeuwenhoek, Leibnitz, and others. It was a titanic period, and hovering above them all was the man who symbolized the power and majesty of the absolute monarchy...Louix XIV. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlton Griffin.

The Great Philosophers: From Socrates to Foucau...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Philosophy has been underway for more than 2,000 years. The Great Philosophers traces the biggest and most influential thoughts in philosophy’s long stride through history, beginning with the ancient Greeks and early Romans, the first philosophical thinkers in the West, to whom much is owed. How their concerns became the concerns of those who followed is clearly laid out, as is the way their answers shaped what we now recognize as philosophy. The medieval philosophers are also represented, combining their religious concerns with ancient thought and carrying it into the Renaissance. The modern era, the explosion of philosophy sparked by Descartes, is well represented here too. Founders and representatives of both rationalist and empiricist schools make an appearance, as do philosophy’s skeptics with their often-darker conclusions. Philosophy’s long walk continues, and you will find here the thoughts which make its contemporary form what it is, and perhaps what it is on the way to becoming. Philosophy is very much still underway, and The Great Philosophers pays regard to both the discipline as it is practiced now and to the history which made contemporary philosophy possible. 1.

One of the most remarkable figures of the Renaissance, Michel de Montaigne was a brilliant French philosopher and statesman whose work directly influenced René Descartes, Friedrich Nietzsche, Isaac Asimov and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. He was a humanist and a sceptic, with an insatiable and wide-ranging curiosity. In 1571, on his 38th birthday, he withdrew from public life and retired to the library in his castle tower, where he assembled a body of work that is still highly relevant today. This collection contains more than 100 chapters, written in a surprisingly accessible manner. He weaves together personal anecdotes, serious intellectual argument, and quotes from classical Greek and Roman philosophers. While this style was criticized during his lifetime as being overly self-indulgent, he has since been credited with popularizing the essay as a respectable literary form. Using his own experiences and judgement as a lens through which to view the world, his essays cover such disparate topics as war horses, cannibalism, and ancient customs; as well as heavyweight ideas such as war, death, religion and truth. 1.

Light: A Radiant History from Creation to the Q...

Light begins at Stonehenge, where crowds cheer a solstice sunrise. After sampling myths explaining First Light, the story moves on to early philosophers´ queries, then through the centuries, from Buddhist temples to Biblical scripture, when light was the soul of the divine. Battling darkness and despair, Gothic architects crafted radiant cathedrals while Dante dreamed a ´heaven of pure light.´ Later, following Leonardo´s advice, Renaissance artists learned to capture light on canvas. During the Scientific Revolution, Galileo gathered light in his telescope, Descartes measured the rainbow, and Newton used prisms to solidify the science of optics. But even after Newton, light was an enigma. Particle or wave? Did it flow through an invisible ´ether´? Through the age of Edison and into the age of lasers, Light reveals how light sparked new wonders - relativity, quantum electrodynamics, fiber optics, and more. Although lasers now perform everyday miracles, light retains its eternal allure. ´´For the rest of my life,´´ Einstein said, ´´I will reflect on what light is.´´ Light explores and celebrates such curiosity. 1.

The Dream of Enlightenment: The Rise of Modern ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The author of the classic The Dream of Reason vividly explains the rise of modern thought. Western philosophy is now two-and-a-half millennia old, but much of it came in just two staccato bursts, each lasting only about 150 years. In his landmark survey of Western philosophy from the Greeks to the Renaissance, The Dream of Reason, Anthony Gottlieb documented the first burst, which came in the Athens of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. Now, in The Dream of Enlightenment, Gottlieb expertly navigates a second great explosion of thought, taking us to northern Europe in the wake of its wars of religion and the rise of Galilean science. In a relatively short period - from the early 1640s to the eve of the French Revolution - Descartes, Hobbes, Spinoza, Locke, Leibniz, and Hume all made their mark. The Dream of Enlightenment tells their story, and that of the birth of modern philosophy. As Gottlieb explains, all these men were amateurs: none had much to do with any university. They tried to fathom the implications of the new science and of religious upheaval, which led them to question traditional teachings and attitudes. What does the advance of science entail for our understanding of ourselves and for our ideas of God? How should a government deal with religious diversity - and what, actually, is government for? Such questions remain our questions, which is why Descartes, Hobbes, and the others are still pondered today. Yet it is because we still want to hear them that we can easily get these philosophers wrong. It is tempting to think they speak our language and live in our world; but to understand them properly, we must step back into their shoes. Gottlieb puts listeners in the minds of these frequently misinterpreted figures, elucidating the history of their times and the development of scientific ideas, while engagingly explaining their arguments and assessing their legacy in lively prose.
