Be this because it may possibly, how­ ever, the real truth for current attention is that Russell used to be a big effect in turning Anglo-American philosophy within the course it has hence taken - towards what could be termed, relatively basic­ ly, the "linguistic philosophy. " regrettably, even though his value as a precursor of the linguistic philosophy is famous, the suitable feel during which Russell himself may be thought of a "philosopher of language" has no longer, to the current time, been sufficiently clarified. important beginnings were made towards an research of this query, yet they've been, withal, simply start­ nings, and not anything like an enough photograph of Russell's total philoso­ phy of language is shortly available.

Download Ich und Andere.: Hume – Rousseau – Kant. (German Edition) by Volker Bartsch PDF

By Volker Bartsch

Hinter den Anderen erscheint unser Ich immer schon als Schattenbild aller Möglichkeiten

Seit jeher ist sich der Mensch in seiner Bösartigkeit und Güte ein Rätsel, dem Philosophen mit ethical und Tugend beizukommen versucht haben. Dabei ist der scharfe Blick auf das tatsächliche Verhalten von Menschen nicht verlorengegangen. Die Aufklärung am Beginn unserer Moderne versuchte eine stability zwischen einem realistischen Menschenbild und einer zukunftsweisenden Perspektive zu finden, die das Zusammenleben durch Staat und Recht für alle verträglich machen sollte. Der Appell an das moralisch Gute jedenfalls ist in der Lebenswirklichkeit so folgenlos geblieben wie eh und je. Hinter den Anderen erscheint unser Ich immer schon als Schattenbild aller Möglichkeiten, lautet das Fazit. Humanes Handeln wird nicht durch Du-sollst-Regeln möglich, sondern durch unser empirisches Wissen, dass nichts, was once geschieht, wieder ungeschehen gemacht werden kann. So ist ein textgenauer Blick in die europäische Aufklärung am Beispiel dreier bedeutender Protagonisten zugleich ein Blick auf die Wurzeln und Auswüchse unserer Gegenwart. Und in mancherlei Hinsicht ein intellektuelles Déjà-vu-Vergnügen.
