This volume includes a step-by-step textual commentary on Jean-Jacques Rousseau?s first and second critical discourses on civilization. Rousseau?s thesis is that man has become progressively alienated from his own nature and thus perverted by technological and scientific progress. The example of Rousseau shows that critical reflection on modern civilization had already begun during the Enlightenment. Schlagartig berühmt geworden ist Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) mit seinem Diskurs über die Wissenschaften und Künste (1750), in dem er das Grundübel der modernen Zivilisation damit begründet, dass sich der Mensch immer mehr von der Natur entfernt. Zwar propagiert er kein ´´Zurück zur Natur´´, wie ihm häufig nachgesagt wird, wohl aber einen Zustand auf mittlerem zivilisatorischem Niveau. Dabei geht es ihm nicht nur um das Verhältnis des Menschen zu seiner natürlichen Umwelt, sondern vor allem auch um die Entfremdung von der eigenen Natur. Im zweiten Diskurs über den Ursprung und die Grundlagen der Ungleichheit unter den Menschen (1755) versucht Rousseau, seine Behauptung mit Hilfe einer geschichtsphilosophischen Darstellung zu vertiefen. Hier macht er nicht nur die wissenschaftlich-technischen Fortschritte für den Sittenverfall verantwortlich. Die tiefere Ursache dafür sieht er vielmehr in der Entstehung des Privateigentums und der daraus resultierenden Pervertierung des Menschen. Im Gegensatz zur vorherrschenden Geschichtsphilosophie seiner Zeit deutet Rousseau den Fortschritt in einen Verfallsprozess um. Das Beispiel dieses Autors zeigt, dass bereits während der Epoche der Aufklärung die kritische Reflexion über die Moderne beginnt. Der Band erschließt Rousseaus Diskurse zur Zivilisationskritik auf aktuellem Forschungsstand für Studierende, Forscher und ein breites akademisches Publikum.

´´To hold a pen is to be at war.´´ - Voltaire ´´All men are equal; it is not their birth, but virtue itself that makes the difference.´´ - Voltaire The grand narrative of the Enlightenment, usually recounted and understood in terms of progress and modernity, generally appears as a simplified evolution from the trappings of superstition, feudalism, and everything ´´irrational´´ to a world more similar to today´s world. Alongside the Renaissance, the Enlightenment is credited for the transition to an adherence to reason, secularism, and promotion of values such as individual and collective freedom and liberty. At the heart of the movement in France was François-Marie Arouet, better known by the pen name Voltaire, whose voluminous writings advocated for greater liberalism, including the freedom of religion and the separation of church and state. In addition to the classic Candide, Voltaire was a biting polemic whose satirical attacks on the Catholic Church were among the fiercest of his day. He also understood the risks he was taking with these writings, at one point explaining, ´´It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong.´´ The Enlightenment is looked upon fondly, and it serves to reinforce the notion that the present is superior to the past, but things did not change as rapidly or as completely as many believe. In fact, some recent historians have challenged the belief that the Enlightenment was responsible for the French Revolution, which is a vital issue when it comes to Voltaire. After all, Voltaire, as his contemporaries and as most of his modern listeners know him, is widely regarded as the pinnacle of Enlightenment thought, the symbol of the era of reason, and the harbinger of modern values. 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.
