This book was released on 2017-01-01 with total page 328 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Noch vor wenigen Jahrzehnten galten Märkte als Institutionen, mit denen sich Probleme in nahezu allen gesellschaftlichen Bereichen effizient und zum Vorteil aller Bürgerinnen und Bürger lösen lassen. Diese Einschätzung ist inzwischen einer anderen gewichen: Seit dem Ausbruch der Weltwirtschaftskrise im Jahre 2008 werden Märkte zunehmend als Institutionen wahrgenommen, die gesellschaftliche Probleme nicht lösen und soziale Missstände erzeugen. Es ist deshalb keine Überraschung, dass Fragen des Marktes von Philosophinnen und Philosophen wieder verstärkt aufgegriffen und diskutiert werden. Dieses Buch möchte zur Klärung, Erörterung und Beantwortung der begrifflichen, sozialtheoretischen, moralpsychologischen und ethischen Fragen, mit denen uns die globalen Märkte gegenwärtig konfrontieren, beitragen und zugleich neues Licht auf die Theorien klassischer Vertreter der Philosophie des Marktes (wie Adam Smith, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Karl Marx oder John Stuart Mill) werfen. Ihm liegt die Erwartung zugrunde, dass diese Theorien für die heutige Politische Philosophie und Sozialphilosophie auch systematisch bereichernd sind.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Only recently has the phenomenon of technology become an object of in terest for philosophers. The first attempts at a philosophy of technology date back scarcely a hundred years - a span of time extremely short when com pared with the antiquity of philosophical reflections on nature, science, and society. Over that hundred-year span, speculative, critical, and empiricist approaches of various sorts have been put forward. Nevertheless, even now there remains a broad gap between the importance of technology in the real world and the sparse number of philosophical works dedicated to the under standing of modern technology. As a result of the complex structure of modern technology, it can be dealt with in very different ways. These range from metaphysical exposition to efforts aimed at political consensus. Quite naturally, within such a broad range, certain national accents can be discovered-; they are shaped by a com mon language, accepted philosophical traditions, and concrete problems requiring consideration. Even so, the worldwide impact of technology, its penetration into all spheres of individual, social, and cultural life, together with the urgency of the problems raised in this context - all these demand a joint philosophical discussion that transcends the barriers of language and cultural differences. The papers printed here are intended to exemplify such an effort at culture-transcending philosophical discussion.

By identifying the various different approaches and discussing the role, and significance of philosophical methods in the Chinese tradition, this collection identifies difficulties and exciting developments for scholars of Asian philosophy. Divided into four parts, the nature of Chinese philosophical thought is illuminated by discussing historical developments, current concerns and methodological challenges. Surveying recent methodological trends, this research companion explores and evaluates the methodologies that have been applied to Chinese philosophy. From these diverse angles, an international team of experts reflect on the considerations that enter their methodological choices and indicate new research directions. The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Chinese Philosophy Methodologies is an important contribution to the education of the next generation of Chinese philosophers.

Download or read book The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Death written by Ben Bradley and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2015-09 with total page 517 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Death has long been a pre-occupation of philosophers, and this is especially so today. The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Death collects 21 newly commissioned essays that cover current philosophical thinking of death-related topics across the entire range of the discipline. These include metaphysical topics--such as the nature of death, the possibility of an afterlife, the nature of persons, and how our thinking about time affects what we think about death--as well as axiological topics, such as whether death is bad for its victim, what makes it bad to die, what attitude it is fitting to take towards death, the possibility of posthumous harm, and the desirability of immortality. The contributors also explore the views of ancient philosophers such as Aristotle, Plato and Epicurus on topics related to the philosophy of death, and questions in normative ethics, such as what makes killing wrong when it is wrong, and whether it is wrong to kill fetuses, non-human animals, combatants in war, and convicted murderers. With chapters written by a wide range of experts in metaphysics, ethics, and conceptual analysis, and designed to give the reader a comprehensive view of recent developments in the philosophical study of death, this Handbook will appeal to a broad audience in philosophy, particularly in ethics and metaphysics.

Download or read book The Philosophy of Sartre written by Anthony Hatzimoysis and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-12-18 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Playwright, novelist, political theorist, literary critic and philosopher, Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-80) remains an iconic figure. This book examines his philosophical ideas and methods. It is an introductory guide for the student who wishes to understand Sartre's philosophical argumentation. It reconstructs in plain language key instances of Sartre's philosophical reasoning at work and shows how certain questions arise for Sartre and what philosophical tools he uses to address those questions. Each chapter considers a range of issues in the Sartrean corpus including his conception of phenomenology, the question of self-identity, the Sartrean view of conscious beings, his understanding of the self, his theory of value, human action as both the originator and the outcome of social processes, dialectical reason, and his conception of artistic activity. Hatzimoysis uncovers the philosophical argumentation, identifies Sartre's most important philosophical ideas and addresses the arguments in which those ideas are employed. Readers are able to get a real understanding of Sartre's approach to the activity of philosophising and how his method favours certain types of philosophical analysis.

Download or read book Rousseau’s Rejuvenation of Political Philosophy written by Nelson Lund and published by Springer. This book was released on 2016-09-17 with total page 282 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book reads Jean-Jacques Rousseau with a view toward deepening our understanding of many political issues alive today, including the place of women in society, the viability of traditional family structures, the role of religion and religious freedom in nations that are becoming ever more secular, and the proper conduct of American constitutional government. Rousseau has been among the most influential modern philosophers, and among the most misunderstood. The first great philosophic critic of the Enlightenment, he sought to revive political philosophy as it was practiced by Plato, and to make it useful in the modern world. His understanding of politics rests on deep and often prescient reflections about the nature of the human soul and the relationship between our animal origins and the achievements of civilization. This book demonstrates that the implications Rousseau drew from those reflections continue to deserve serious attention.
