By Emmanuel Falque,William Christian Hackett

In God, the Flesh, and the Other, the thinker Emmanuel Falque joins the continued debate in regards to the position of theology in phenomenology. a tremendous voice within the moment iteration of French philosophy’s “theological turn,” Falque examines philosophically the fathers of the Church and the medieval theologians at the nature of theology and the items comprising it. Falque works phenomenology itself into the corpus of theology. Theological suggestions therefore translate into philosophical phrases that phenomenology may still legitimately query: options from modern phenomenology akin to onto-theology, visual appeal, relief, body/flesh, inter-corporeity, the genesis of group, intersubjectivity, and the singularity of the opposite locate penetrating analogues in patristic and medieval idea solid via millennia of Christological and Trinitarian debate, mystical discourses, and speculative mirrored image. via Falque’s wide-ranging interpretive course, phenomenology unearths itself interrogated—and renewed.

Download PDF by Giovanni Pico della Mirandola,Thorsten Bürklin: Kommentar zu einem Lied der Liebe: Italienisch-Deutsch

By Giovanni Pico della Mirandola,Thorsten Bürklin

Der "Kommentar zu einem Lied der Liebe" des Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494) entstand während des Jahres 1486, zeitgleich mit der Niederschrift der 900 Thesen sowie der dazu einleitenden "Oratio de hominis dignitate" (PhB 427). Die Grundlage des Kommentars waren neun Stanzen, verfaßt von Girolamo Benivieni, der wie Pico ebenfalls dem losen Kreis der Florentiner Akademie um Marsilio Ficino zuzurechnen ist.

Das Thema der Schrift ist das Verhältnis zwischen Einheit und Mannigfaltigkeit. Während Gott das Einfache ist, ist das Schöne Zusammensetzung und Widerstreit. Das erscheinende Schöne mit all seinen Ungereimtheiten und Unvollkommenheiten ist der Gegenstand Picos Interesses; das vorgeblich Perfekte dagegen erscheint ihm schal. Innerhalb der neuplatonischen culture gelingt Pico eine Aufwertung der Phänomene der erscheinenden Wirklichkeit.

Kommentar, Thesenschrift und Oratio stehen in engem Zusammenhang. Der Kommentar kann als der Versuch einer praktisch-poetischen Durchführung der streng wissenschaftlich gehaltenen Thesenschrift verstanden werden. In 'freier' shape modelliert Pico um den Anlaß der Kanzone seine immer wieder vorgebrachte konziliatorische Absicht: den Nachweis der Übereinstimmung und Vereinbarkeit des über die Zeiten hinweg sich ausdifferenzierenden und - aus seiner Sicht - scheinbar sich widersprechenden Wissens. Dabei wird das poetische Mittel zu einem bedeutenden Träger des Gehalts. Denn während das schrittweise, diskursive Vorgehen philosophischer Untersuchungen die betrachtete Wirklichkeit in ihre einzelnen Bestandteile zerlegt, erzeugt das poetische Denken eine Gemeinsamkeit der zuvor noch auseinanderstrebenden Inhalte.

Get GESCHICHTE WISSEN: Eine Philosophie der Kontingenz im PDF

By Wilhelm Schmidt-Biggemann,Eckhart Holzboog

Geschichte kann allein in Geschichten zur Erscheinung kommen. Wo nichts über Geschichte erzählt wird, geschieht sie unbewältigt, sie bleibt in ihrer Zeitlichkeit und in ihrem Sinn verborgen. Das vorliegende Buch zeigt, ausgehend von Schelling, Heidegger und Blumenberg, kritisch gegenüber Hegel und Foucault, wie kontingente, absolute Ereignisse als Geschichten erfahren und als erzähltes Wissen präsentiert werden. Als Berichte von Offenbarungen, als philosophische Heimatliteratur der Lebenswelt, als ästhetische Sinnzumutungen oder Aporien diskursiver Machtentfaltung versuchen Geschichten, das Flüchtige zu bannen. Dabei inszenieren sie ständig die Paradoxie, den Absolutismus der Realität zugleich darzustellen und zu verlieren. >Geschichte wissen< betrifft als Erkenntnislehre geistiger Erfahrung wesentlich auch Theologie, Geschichtswissenschaft und Literaturtheorie.
