No one theory of time is pursued in these essays, but a major theme that threads them together is Wolfson’s signature idea of the timeswerve as a linear circularity or a circular linearity, expressions that are meant to avoid the conventional split between the two temporal modalities of the line and the circle. The conception of time elicited by Wolfson from a host of philosophical and mystical sources—both Jewish and non-Jewish—buttresses the contention that it is precisely structural invariability that engenders interpretive variation. This hermeneutical axiom is justified, in turn, by the presumption regarding the cadence of time as the constant return of what has always been what is yet to be. The telling of time wells forth from the time of telling. One cannot speak of the being of time, consequently, except from the standpoint of the time of being, nor of the time of being except from the standpoint of the being of time.
Religionsphilosophie von Kant zu Nietzsche
Author: Edith Düsing
Es geht um die bis heute währende Auseinandersetzung zwischen Atheismus und Religionsphilosophie. Im Ausgang von Kants Kritik des Atheismus und seiner ethisch fundierten Gotteslehre wird eine Typik von Denkformen des Atheismus entworfen. Anhand dieser Typik kann die Eigenart von Nietzsches Atheismus herauskristallisiert werden.
Des Näheren wird Nietzsches Verfremdung von Kants Gottespostulat untersucht. Grundstürzende Konsequenz ist Nietzsches Voraussicht des europäischen Nihilismus. In Entsprechung zu Nietzsches Destruktion der Gottesidee steht die von ihm konsequent zu Ende gedachte und in der Folgelast gefährliche Umkehr der Tradition der Geistseele zur Tierseele des Menschen. Dieser düsteren Prophetie werden klassische Modelle des Verhältnisses von Gott und Ich bei Fichte, bei Hegel, bei Hölderlin und Kierkegaard in ihrer argumentativen Klarheit und Überzeugungskraft entgegengestellt.
Early Psychoanalytic Religious Writings presents, in one edited volume, many of the foundational writings in the psychoanalytic study of religion. These translated works by Abraham, Fromm, Pfister, and others, complement Freud’s seminal contributions and provide a unique window into the origins of psychoanalytic thinking. The volume includes the Freud-Pfister correspondence, with a brief introduction, which reveals the rich back story of friendship, mutual respect, and intellectual debate. These essays are anchored in Freud’s early theory-building and prefigure and are linked to later developments in psychoanalytic thought. The issues raised in these essays are of relevance still today – how is religions thinking shaped by unconscious processes reflecting primary relationships and drives?
The articles in The Bounds of Myth, edited by Gustavo Esparza and Nassim Bravo, shed light on the internal shapes of the mythological discourse, showing the way in which myth borders religion, science, literature, theology, i.e., other forms of rationality. The contributing authors of the volume claim that myth is a valid form of thought and that the former evolves within other forms of discourse, even though its composition is independent and even precedes the latter.
The articles collected here demonstrate the importance of myth as a form of thought that is in constant development, a feature that shows in turn that in spite of its remote and archaic origin, myth remains a valuable and relevant tool to interpret our own culture.
