Perspectives contemporaines sur l’agentivité et le sujet
Volume Editor: Federico Boccaccini
Phénoménologie de l'action présente d’une manière très originale certains des différents aspects débattus aujourd’hui dans la philosophie de l’action. Grâce au renouvellement au sein de la philosophie de l’esprit concernant la connaissance en première personne, l’analyse de la relation entre le sujet et ses actions a connu un net regain d’intérêt ces dernières années. En mobilisant à la fois la tradition anglo-américaine et la tradition européenne, l’ouvrage se focalise davantage sur la question du moi et sur celle de l’agentivité (agency). La possibilité d’un dialogue entre ces deux traditions concernant la théorie de l’action en phénoménologie constitue l’originalité du volume.

Phénoménologie de l’action presents in a very innovative way some of the different aspects debated today in the philosophy of action. Thanks to the renewal within the philosophy of mind concerning first-person knowledge, the analysis of the relation between the self and its actions has undergone a revival in recent years. Drawing from both the Anglo-American and the European tradition, this book focuses mainly on the relation between self and agency. The possibility of a dialogue between these two traditions concerning the theory of action from a phenomenological standpoint constitutes the originality of this volume.
Conceived of as a supplement to the International Journal for the Study of Skepticism, the series Brill Studies in Skepticism aims to publish original historical scholarship and cutting-edge contemporary research on philosophical skepticism. The series covers a wide range of areas: the history of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary skepticism, as well as systematic discussions of skeptical problems and arguments in epistemology, metaethics, philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. Brill Studies in Skepticism therefore welcomes proposals for monographs and edited volumes from historians of philosophy and contemporary philosophers working in a variety of methods and traditions.

All proposals are evaluated by the Series Editors with the assistance of the members of the Advisory Board. If the proposed monograph or edited volume is deemed to make an original contribution to the study of the history or significance of philosophical skepticism, the author or editor will be invited to submit a complete manuscript, which will undergo double-blind peer review.

The Series Editors and the members of the Advisory Board are excluded from authoring monographs and from participating in edited volumes in the series.

This series deals with the philosophy of critical rationalism founded by Karl R. Popper. This philosophy with its socio-philosophical concepts ("Open Society", etc.), is the contemporary philosophy of pluralistic democratic society.
Central theses of critical rationalism in the epistemology and philosophy of science are indicative for discussion about the fundaments of many scientific disciplines. Also any modern Enlightenment philosophy and philosophical criticism, can no longer do without the insights of critical rationalism.

Diese Schriftenreihe befaßt sich mit der von Karl R. Popper begründeten Philosophie des Kritischen Rationalismus. Diese Philosophie ist mit ihren sozialphilosophischen Konzeptionen ("Offene Gesellschaft", u.a.) die zeitgemäße Philosophie der pluralistisch-demokratischen Gesellschaft. Zentrale Thesen des Kritischen Rationalismus in der Erkenntnislehre und Wissenschaftstheorie sind für die Grundlagendiskussion in vielen Wissenschaftsdisziplinen richtungsweisend, ebenso wie jede moderne Aufklärungsphilosophie und Weltanschauungskritik die Einsichten des Kritischen Rationalismus nicht mehr umgehen kann.
Globalization is a defining characteristic of our contemporary world, with a reach and impact affecting all nations and peoples. Philosophical Aspects of Globalization is a collection of essays by leading contemporary Russian philosophers, scholars, and scientists concerned with addressing pressing issues of globalization from a philosophical point of view. The thirty-four authors who have contributed to this book represent a range of approaches and subfields of Global Studies in Russia, including topics such as theory of globalization, globalization and the environment, history and geopolitics, and globalization in cultural context. When compiled together in a single collection of essays, their work offers the English-speaking reader a comprehensive picture of new directions in Russian Global Studies in the twenty-first century, as well as demonstrates the importance of questions of globalization for philosophical inquiry in Russia today.
Rawls and Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas
John Rawls is the most influential 20th century political philosopher, but critics have complained about the ahistorical character of his approach. The purpose of this book is to argue that these critics are, at best, only half correct.Pre-Liberal Political Philosophy concentrates on four pre-liberal thinkers who are major figures in the history of philosophy and who are surprisingly formative in the development of Rawls’s mature political philosophy: Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, and Aquinas.
Several illuminating connections are drawn between Rawls’s political liberalism and Plato’s contrasting appeal to the “noble lie” in politics, between Rawls’s overall method of reflective equilibrium and Aristotle’s dialectic, between Rawls’s opposition to merit in the distribution of wealth and Augustine’s similar anti-Pelagian stance, and between Rawls’s view of a just society as a common good of common goods and the natural law dimension of Aquinas’s philosophy. In general, the distance between Rawlsian abstraction and his historical embeddedness is lessened considerably.
