By Miklós Vassányi

This paintings provides and philosophically analyzes the early sleek and glossy background of the idea about the soul of the area, anima mundi. The preliminary query of the research is why there has been a revival of this conception throughout the time of the early German Romanticism, while the concept that of the anima mundi had been rejected within the past, classical interval of eu philosophy (early and mature Enlightenment). The presentation and research starts off from the Leibnizian-Wolffian institution, commonly antagonistic to the speculation, and covers classical eighteenth-century physico-theology, additionally reluctant to simply accept an anima mundi. subsequent, it discusses early smooth and glossy Christian philosophical Cabbala (Böhme and Ötinger), an highbrow culture which to a point tolerated the assumption of a soul of the realm. The philosophical courting among Spinoza and Spinozism at the one hand, and the anima mundi theory at the different can be tested.

El título del libro podría inducir a una lectura incorrecta como si de violencia se tratara. El sugestivo refrán que le brinda sustento es, sin embargo, muy expresivo, secularizándolo podría traducirse como sigue: no basta con desear algo, es necesario poner manos a los angeles obra para lograrlo o, de otro modo, no hay teoría eficaz sin acción consecuente o filosofar pleno sin praxis trasformadora.

Die offiziellen Debatten um Sterbehilfe offenbaren ein skandalöses Maß an Arroganz und Bevormundung seitens der machthabenden Eliten. Das Buch diskutiert die gängigen Positionen und skizziert die sich heute schon abzeichnenden Alternativen. Gestiegene Lebenserwartung bedeutet leider auch Leidensverlängerung im regulate und Sterbensverlängerung am Lebensende.

「昭和」が終わり二十年が経とうとしている。その六十余年の歴史には、目まぐるしい思想変遷があった。戦前―戦後という大きな断絶、六〇年安保、七〇年大学闘争、オイルショック、ポストモダン、バブル経済……。時代意識の転換はいかに起き、作家や学者たちはどのような発言をしたのか。マルクス主義の人間学を樹立しようとした三木清、大衆の肉体主義を批判した丸山真男、大衆の自立こそが変革の出発点だとした吉本隆明をはじめ、芥川龍之介、柳田国男、福田恆存、三島由紀夫など、彼らの功罪を含めて果敢に批評。ベトナム戦争をめぐって開高健をやり玉にあげた吉本隆明や、丸谷才一の「国家論」に噛み付いた江藤淳などのエピソードも印象深い。また、八〇年代以降、西部邁や小室直樹、浅田彰が登場してきた必然性を考察。司馬遼太郎、長谷川慶太郎といった思想家の範疇におさまらない人物が登場するのも斬新である。豊饒な昭和思想史を総括した記念碑的労作。
