Anthropology, Epistemology, Ethics, Space
Volume Editors: Asis De and Alessandro Vescovi
An Indian Bengali by birth, Amitav Ghosh has established himself as a major voice in what is often called world literature, addressing issues such as the post-colonial and neo-colonial predicaments, the plight of the subalterns, the origin of globalisation and capitalism, and lately ecology and migration. The volume is therefore divided according to the four domains that lie at the heart of Ghosh’s writing practice: anthropology, epistemology, ethics and space. In this volume, a number of scholars from all over the world have come together to shed new light on the works and poetics of Amitav Ghosh according to the epistemic frameworks that form the bedrock of his fiction.

In Nicholas of Cusa on the Trinitarian Structure of the Innate Criterion of Truth, Paula Pico Estrada offers an analysis of Nicholas of Cusa’s (1401-1464) unitrine conception of the human power of judgment, arguing that the innate criterion that guides human beings to their end is formed by a cognitive, an affective and a social dimension, and that it not only makes possible the systematization and evaluation of the cognitive experience but also enables morality.
Based on a closed reading of Cusanus’ philosophical treatises, the study deepens the understanding of Nicholas of Cusa’s epistemology, showing that his antropological conception closely integrates philosophy and theology.
A Semiotic Reinterpretation of The Great Ideas Movement for the 21st Century
This volume tests a hypothesis—philosophy and science are identical forms of behavioristic, organizational psychology: a psychological habit of wondering about causes of organizational existence, formation, and behaviour. Focusing attention on two universal and culturally influential great ideas—freedom and religion—this volume’s array of international scholars demonstrate that leading ancient and medieval philosophers did philosophy in this way. Also, well-known philosophers/scientists like Mortimer J. Adler and John N. Deely practiced philosophy this way. Doing so is precisely what made these philosophers uniquely capable of generating great ideas as motivational principles that dramatically alter cultures. In a nutshell, this work offers significant support for its historically and philosophically ground-breaking thesis.
Intellektuelle Tugenden und der Begriff des Wissens
Author: Steven Kindley
Diese erste deutschsprachige Monographie zur Tugenderkenntnistheorie gibt einen Überblick über die Debattenlandschaft und argumentiert für eine ihrer Varianten.
Der Fokus des Buchs liegt auf der Tugenderkenntnistheorie als Theorie von Wissen. Es führt voraussetzungslos in die Debatte ein, bietet ein einheitliches Definitionsschema für die so genannte aretaische Analyse von Wissen, klärt vor dem aristotelischen Hintergrund den Begriff der intellektuellen Tugend in unterschiedlichen Varianten und vergleicht die wichtigsten Strömungen innerhalb der aretaischen Analyse miteinander. Darüber hinaus liefert es eine Verteidigung einer bestimmten Variante der Tugenderkenntnistheorie – des Tugendreliabilismus –, in deren Rahmen der Begriff des Wissens mithilfe des Begriffs der kognitiven Fähigkeit definiert wird.
