Ironía y destino: La filosofía secreta de Søren Kierkegaard by Fernando Pérez-Borbujo

By Fernando Pérez-Borbujo

Filósofo y teólogo, personalidad inclasificable y controvertida, Kierkegaard continúa siendo una referencia para casi todos los pensadores contemporáneos. Doscientos años después de su nacimiento, el significado de su obra es un misterio, como si fuera imposible desentrañar su secreto. Es más, podría afirmarse que los angeles suya es una «filosofía del secreto», ya que ejerció, con plena conciencia, una filosofía hermética. Así, como en el caso de Heráclito, ha dado lugar a una ingente producción hermenéutica, a interpretaciones variadas y, a veces, contrapuestas. Lo cierto es que sigue despertando el interés, inclusive en una sociedad descristianizada, descreída, atea y nada idealista como los angeles real, y l. a. mirada contemporánea ha sabido encontrar en él nuevos aspectos, antes ocultos o relegados a un segundo término.

El presente volumen, prologado y editado por Fernando Pérez-Borbujo, busca dar a conocer esos nuevos aspectos. En él, algunos de los más reconocidos estudiosos de l. a. obra kierkegaardiana nos abren los ojos a una concepción poliédrica del genio danés. Jon Stewart contextualiza históricamente su pensamiento; Jacobo Zabalo nos sumerge su «esfera estética»; María J. Binetti analiza los angeles esfera ética; Francesc Torralba nos introduce en l. a. dimensión religiosa y, finalmente, Luis Guerrero aborda los angeles dimensión social.

Lo que asoma es l. a. mirada common y polifónica de Kierkegaard, cercana a amplios sectores de l. a. humanidad, de ideología e índole diversas; una mirada que supo percibir en su tiempo una main issue sin precedentes en l. a. cual un nuevo fundamento todavía escondido emergía «secretamente» entre las ruinas de los viejos pilares derruidos. l. a. lectura contemporánea de su obra puede acercarnos a verdades profundas y estables sobre los angeles condición humana.

Philosophischer Surrealismus (German Edition) by Wolfram Hogrebe

By Wolfram Hogrebe

< !doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">

Mit diesem Buch über Philosophischen Surrealismus ist das anthropologische Quartett Riskante Lebensnähe (2009; engl. Risky Proximity to Life, 2010), Der implizite Mensch (2013), Metaphysik und Mantik (2., verb. Auflage 2013) abgeschlossen. In diesem letzten Band wird die Grundidee des Surrealismus als philosophische Figur vorgestellt, die sich aus dem Erbe des Neuplatonismus als grundlegende Einsicht in das Überseiende, eben in das Surreale fassen läßt. Aus diesem Entgrenzungsmodus speist sich unser Abstand zum Physischen, nicht als Überbau, sondern als Unterbau: als Teppich des Lebens. Dessen Webmuster machen Figuren des Nichtwissens wahrnehmbar, wie sie expressiv, logisch, semantisch und spekulativ zum Ausdruck gebracht wurden. Salvador Dali, Eriugena, der Sohar, Hans Wagner und Josef König werden in diesem Buch für ein solches entgrenzendes Denken als Zeugen aufgerufen. Im Surrealen entdeckt sich eine Welt des Geheimen und Rätselhaften, in die wir uns als denkende Wesen hineingestellt erfahren, in Kunst und Philosophie gleichermaßen.

Phenomenologies of Art and Vision: A Post-Analytic Turn by Paul Crowther

By Paul Crowther

discussions of the picture wish to emphasize art's societal services. Few
studies come with reference to answering why photographs and sculptures fascinate and
intrigue despite any sensible services they may serve. In this
original, thought-provoking examine, Paul Crowther unearths the intrinsic
significance of images and sculptures.
to deal with the
question of ways portray turns into an artwork, Crowther makes use of the analytic philosophy
of Richard Wollheim as a place to begin. yet to sufficiently solution the
question, he makes a major hyperlink to a convention even more profitable in
giving voice to the deeper ontology of visible artwork - existential phenomenology.
the result's a piece that demonstrates the
reciprocal dating among phenomenology and analytic aesthetics. To
expand its ontological scope and clear up the matter of expression, analytic aesthetics
needs phenomenology; whereas to improve a sustained, severely balanced, and
intellectually on hand ontology, phenomenology wishes the discursive strength and
lucidity of analytic philosophy. This convincing case for a post-analytic
phenomenology of artwork is a vital development of latest discussions of
the philosophy of art.
