By Christopher Hamilton,Charles Pépin,Thomas Chaumont

“Il y a quelque selected de réconfortant dans le fait d’avoir quarante ans.”
Quelques cheveux blancs et trois pattes d’oie : on n’a rien vu venir. Un sentiment paradoxal nous saisit, mêlé de nostalgie et d’ennui, mais aussi de lucidité, de confiance et de sérénité. los angeles quarantaine est une étape délicate et contradictoire : d’un côté les dés sont jetés, de l’autre l. a. trajectoire n’a jamais été aussi limpide.
Un philosophe anglais interroge ce second si particulier de los angeles vie avec une sincérité réjouissante. Il nourrit
sa réflexion des œuvres d’autres quarantenaires inspirés, de Nietzsche à Hölderlin, de Montaigne à Rembrandt.

Contingency, Time, and Possibility: An Essay on Aristotle by Pascal Massie

If we're to tell apart mere non-being from that which isn't, but should be, from that which was once no longer, but might have been, or from that in order to no longer be, but may well develop into, we're devoted in a roundabout way to provide being to chances. the potential isn't genuine; but it's not not anything. What then may perhaps it's? What ontological prestige may perhaps it own? In Contingency, Time, and danger: An Essay on Aristotle and Duns Scotus, Pascal Massie opens those questions through combining ways: First, an unique inquiry that analyses the notions of probability, destiny, occasion, contradiction, etc, and means that the excellence among efficiency and act arises from a war of words with the most unlikely. moment, a ancient inquiry that specializes in Aristotle and Duns Scotus, key figures contributing to a primary transformation within the heritage of Western ontology; specifically, the transition from a metaphysics of nature (Aristotle) to a metaphysics of the desire (Scotus).

Wie das Leben spricht: Narrativität als radikale by Kühn

By Kühn

Dieses Buch entfaltet, wie das „originäre Wie“ des Lebens als sein Sich-Selbst-Sagen durch sein Sich-Selbst-Erscheinen zu verstehen ist. Eine solche radikal phänomenologische Problematik wird dabei unter dem umfassenden Begriff der Narrativität subsumiert. Entsprechend wird im Buch konkret analysiert, dass solches „Sagen“ überall dort stattfindet, wo sich Leben als selbstaffektive Passibilität ohne irgendeine Differenz vollzieht: im reinen Cogito als „Ich kann“, im Fleisch als Affekt und Trieb, in der kulturellen Lebenswelt als Ökonomie und Ideologie. Diesem konsequenten Aufbau gehorchen die beiden Hauptteile I und II, wobei sich die Einzeluntersuchungen solcher Narrativität in ihrer lebensphänomenologischen Ursprünglichkeit von der klassischen Bewusstseinslehre wie der ihr entsprechenden Ontologie als einer „Metaphysik der Repräsentation“ in all ihren wirkungsgeschichtlichen Formen abgrenzen. Ein solcher Zugang zur Lebensphänomenologie wird auf diese Weise zum ersten Mal in der Forschung durchgeführt und damit gleichzeitg ein fundamentaler Beitrag zum Verständnis des Denkens Michels Henrys und den Aufgaben der neueren Phänomenologie geleistet.
