Download Une histoire de l'Homme sans fil d'Ariane: Essai de by Fabrice Garcia PDF

By Fabrice Garcia

Pour de nombreuses théories contemporaines, l. a. nature est devenue le Deus ex machina. Nos sentiments, nos comportements et notre pensée dépendraient de l. a. vie, des mutations, de l. a. sélection naturelle, de los angeles sélection de groupe. model, mutations, fonctions, utilité, rapport coût/bénéfice, régulation affective ou sociale : ce lexique n’est plus inconnu pour l’amateur.

Cet ouvrage prétend repenser l’évolution de l’homme dans un contexte plus différent. Dès l’instant en effet où los angeles vie, l. a. tradition et le psychisme forment des nœuds gordiens impossibles à défaire, l’histoire humaine devient un vaste enchevêtrement sans grand fil directeur dominant. Aucune des notions en présence (vie, société et moral sense) ne commande les autres, et l’ensemble unique qu’elles forment apparaît bien étrange. Il s’agit d’en apporter l. a. preuve à travers cet essai qui termine le précédent : Culture, biologie et cognition. Le labyrinthe humain.

Download Revisionen der Zeitlichkeit: Zur Phänomenologie des Bildes by Iris Elisabeth Laner PDF

By Iris Elisabeth Laner

In seinen Analysen des Bildbewusstseins begreift Edmund Husserl das Bild als eine Herausforderung phänomenologischen Fragens. Diese Herausforderung begründet sich durch seine spezifische Gegenstandsund Erfahrungsstruktur, die das Bild als ein besonderes unter den Phänomenen auszeichnet, als ein Phänomen, das einen Unterschied zwischen wirklicher und vorgestellter Welt einführt und hierin Differenzbewusstsein konstituiert. Vor allem mit Blick auf das Thema der Zeit erweist sich die Auseinandersetzung mit der differentiellen Natur des Bildes als folgenreich. Iris Laners systematische Studie widmet sich der Aufgabe, den heuristischen Wert der philosophischen Auseinandersetzung mit dem Bild für die Beantwortung der komplexen Frage nach der Zeit in und nach der Phänomenologie zu bestimmen. Damit unterstreicht sie nicht nur die Bedeutung des Bildes als Phänomen, sondern erörtert dieses auch als grundlegendes Konzept des Denkens.
