Komplexe Einführungen in die Philosophie gibt es wie Sand am Meer. Die Reihe "Philosophische Einstiege" geht einen anderen Weg. Zeichnung und Text sind gleichberechtigt, was diese kurze und äußerst unterhaltsame Einführung besonders leicht verständlich macht. Mit reichlich anekdotischem und biographischem Material ausgestattet wird der Leser mit Leben und Denken eines Philosophen vertraut gemacht. Kleine Exkurse erklären die Wurzeln seines Denkens. Besonders angesprochen sind Schüler, Lehrer, Studienanfänger, philosophische Laien, aber auch Vertraute werden Vergnügen an der Lektüre finden.
Philosophy of History and Culture presents original works broadly concerned with philosophical treatments of the ideas of culture and history, culturally and historically embodied entities, and with interpretive strategies pertinent to their understanding. The series is aimed at readers interested in the philosophy of the arts, cross-cultural phenomena, and the interpretation of literary, historical, legal and religious texts.
Victorian Theology, Philosophy, and Politics
Henry Longueville Mansel (1820-1871), Anglican theologian and philosopher, has wrongly been remembered as a Kantian agnostic whose ideas led to those of Herbert Spencer. Francesca Norman’s book provides a thorough revisioning of Mansel’s theology in context and reveals the personal basis of Spencer’s animus towards Mansel. Mansel is revealed as an orthodox Anglican theistic personalist whose ideas inspired Newman to write his Grammar of Assent. Located in context, Mansel’s personal connections with leading Tory figures such as Lord Carnarvon and Benjamin Disraeli are explored. Key controversies with Frederick Denison Maurice and John Stuart Mill are interpreted with reference to the party political elections of 1859 and 1865. Norman offers a vital vision of nineteenth-century theology, philosophy, and politics.

Series Editor:
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.
Erkundung eines Denk-Raums
„Zuerst formen wir die Gebäude, danach formen sie uns“, lautet ein berühmtes Zitat, das Winston Churchill zugeschrieben wird. Auf kaum jemanden scheint dies so stark zuzutreffen wie auf Martin Heidegger und seine Todtnauberger Hütte. Was wäre aus Heidegger ohne seine Hütte geworden? Wäre er in der Lage gewesen, zu denken, was er gedacht hat? Martin Ludwig Hofmann erkundet in diesem Buch diesen besonderen Denk-Raum und nimmt die Leserinnen und Leser mit auf eine Reise in das Leben und Denken des umstrittenen Philosophen.
This is the first book to explore the role of quotation in modern Jewish thought. Weaving back and forth from Benjamin to Rosenzweig, the book searches for the recovery of concealed and lost meaning in the community of letters, sacred scripture, the collecting of books, storytelling, and the life of liturgy. It also explores how the legacy of Goethe can be used to develop new strata of religious and Jewish thought. We learn how quotation is the binding tissue that links language and thought, modernity and tradition, religion and secularism as a way of being in the world.
Edward Abramowski’s Social Philosophy. With a Selection of His Writings
The Metaphysics of Cooperation presents the intellectual achievements of the Polish associative socialist and pioneer of social sciences, Edward Abramowski. The volume is divided into five sections, each of them contains an analysis of Polish philosopher’s work according to the issues he dealt with: sociology, ethics, politics, cooperativism, and psychology. Each part also contains a selection of his writings. Its intention is to show Abramowski’s works in the context of global intellectual history and to include them in the current political debates. Abramowski makes fraternity or cooperation the main concepts of his social metaphysics. The Polish version of cooperativism can be inspiring both for contemporary researchers and political activists in the post-economic-crisis Europe. It also opens up a space for creating more democratic political and economic institutions.
