Selbstbewusstsein, Leiblichkeit und Persistenz
Author: Markus Herrmann
Manche meinen, unsere Existenz hänge an Erinnerung und Persönlichkeit. Andere glauben, wir seien unsere Biologie. Tatsächlich sind wir körperliches Selbstbewusstsein, das durch all das unbestimmt ist.
Wir haben nicht Bewusstsein, wie wir Hände oder eine Leber besitzen. Denn unsere Fähigkeit, über uns selbst zu reden, kommt zu einem gewissen Preis: Sie legt uns darauf fest, dass wir Selbstbewusstsein sind und nicht nur solches haben. Aber dieses Bewusstsein ist unbestimmt von all dem, was uns wichtig ist. Unsere Existenz besteht nicht in unserer Erinnerung oder Persönlichkeit. Doch über uns selbst zu sprechen, legt uns auf noch mehr fest: Wir können keine reinen Denker sein. Notwendig befinden wir uns körperlich in Raum und Zeit. Diese Körperlichkeit können wir aber nicht vollständig verstehen, wenn wir sie ausschließlich anhand empirischer Wissenschaft erklären wollen.
Contributions from the Second International Conference Graz 1977 & 2017. In memory of Rudolf Haller
Volume Editors: Mauro Antonelli and Thomas Binder
This volume, originating from the centennial Second International Conference Graz 1977–2017 on Franz Brentano’s philosophy, collects eighteen essays written by nineteen distinguished specialists covering the main areas of Brentano’s philosophy: his epistemology, ontology, ethics, and logic, and his contributions to psychology and philosophy of mind. Its goal is to explore the significance and impact of Brentano’s thought, to promote a deepening of the ongoing renaissance of interest in Brentano, and to advance the project of understanding Brentano’s actual philosophical positions and correcting entrenched misunderstandings.
Series Editor: Paul Cobben
This peer-reviewed series publishes volumes on the tradition of German Idealism in the broad sense. It is not only oriented to critical studies on the works of authors who belong to this tradition, but also to the later influence of these works. This means that the series pays attention both to the history of the reception of German Idealism, and to studies that provide in the systematic development of central themes that are formulated by this tradition.

The series published an average of 2,5 volumes per year over the last 5 years.

The question of the self, of what the self is (or even if there is a self), has been one that has grown alongside humanity – has haunted humanity – throughout our history. Blurred: Selves Made and Selves Making guides the reader down these dark corridors, shining light on the specters of theories past and unveiling a new self-view to hover afresh, beckoning to roadways beyond.

In this remarkably interdisciplinary study, philosophy of mind joins with contemporary neuroscience and cutting-edge psychology to lay bare the how of identity formation, judgment, and behavior generation. Drawing on thinkers from both the Continental and Analytic traditions, consciousness is explored and a uniquely realist self-concept presented that, if adopted, offers a life lived otherwise.
Buddhist Philosophy of Consciousness brings Buddhist voices to the study of consciousness. This book explores a variety of different Buddhist approaches to consciousness that developed out of the Buddhist theory of non-self. Topics taken up in these investigations include: how we are able to cognize our own cognitions; whether all conscious states involve conceptualization; whether distinct forms of cognition can operate simultaneously in a single mental stream; whether non-existent entities can serve as intentional objects; and does consciousness have an intrinsic nature, or can it only be characterized functionally? These questions have all featured in recent debates in consciousness studies. The answers that Buddhist philosophers developed to such questions are worth examining just because they may represent novel approaches to questions about consciousness.
Concept and Judgment in Brentano's Logic Lectures is concerned with a crucial aspect of Brentano's philosophy as it was developed in his logic lectures from c. 1870 to c. 1885. The first part of the volume is an analysis of his theory of concept and judgment. The second part consists of materials, including a German edition and English translation of notes that a student took from a lecture course that Brentano gave. A short book by this student on Brentano is also translated in the materials.

The access to Brentano's philosophy is enhanced by this volume not only with regard to his logic as a theory of deductive inference, but also to his descriptive psychology, metaphysics, and philosophy of language.
