The Anthology of the Works of Ugo Spirito captures the trajectory of Ugo Spirito’s complex body of thought that spanned more than fifty years, from 1921 to 1977. While confronting difficult contemporary problems related to philosophy and science, liberalism and socialism, fascism and communism, and other economic and ideological aspects such as corporativism and democracy, Spirito revealed a persistent desire to reach truth and the absolute. Yet, he also voiced his failure to remain faithful to any philosophical or political system considered definitive and unquestionable. Unable to reach incontrovertibility, he consistently dissected the prevailing contemporary ideas and systems, including his own beliefs, developing at the same time the ‘antinomic’ approach, a method of critical analysis that undermined any truth reputed irrefutable. Today, Spirito stands as one of most anti-conformist Italian thinkers for he challenged the certainties of modern thought.
The Feasibility of Ethical Constructivism
Author: Heather Salazar
In Creating a Shared Morality, Heather Salazar develops a consistent and plausible account of ethical constructivism that rivals the traditional metaethical theories of realism and subjectivism (without lapsing into subjectivism as do previous constructivist attempts). Salazar’s Enlightenism argues that all people have moral obligations and that if they reflect well, they will naturally come to care about others as extensions of themselves. Enlightenism resolves difficulties within constructivism, builds bridges between the two traditional Western views of metaethics and employs concepts from Eastern (Buddhist) philosophy. It embraces universal morality while elevating the importance of autonomy, diversity and connectedness. Constructivist enlightenment entails understanding the interdependence of people on others such that we are all co-responsible for the world in which we live.

With each volume a considerable resource in its own right, combined, the companions form a repository and platform of academic discussion and study, offering peer-reviewed content which covers the state of existing research, methodologies, contemporary debates, and the directions future research might or should take.”

Mit Hans Wagner verstarb am 1.2.2000 der wohl bedeutendste philosophische Systematiker der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts und gleichzeitig ein weltweit anerkannter, auch philologisch ausgewiesener Aristoteles-Kenner, -Übersetzer und -Kommentator. Seine reflexions­theoretische Neubegründung der Philosophie als System wurde durch eine umfassende philosophiehistorische Bildung ermöglicht, die, ausgehend von der Philosophie der Antike und die Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts integrierend, sich immer mehr der transzendental­philosophisch-kritischen Leistung Kants annäherte. Er nahm deren Prinzipien auf, modernisierte sie und bewahrte zugleich ihren unvergänglichen Kern, den er zu Recht, ausgehend von den logischen Fundamentalprinzipien und ihrer theoretisch-gegenstandskonstitutiven Funktion, abschließend in der Letztbegründung aller Geltungssphären sah. Sein systematischer Ansatz ermöglichte Wagner schließlich die Entwicklung eines von allen Banalisierungen und Mißverständnissen befreiten, absolut begründeten Begriffs der Würde des Menschen.

In Rufen an die Yale University New Haven und an die New School for Social Research in New York dokumentierte sich die Internationale Anerkennung Hans Wagners. Er lehrte in Würzburg, Frankfurt/M und von 1961 bis zu seiner Emeritierung 1982 in Bonn, unterbrochen durch eine Gastprofessur an der Yale University.

Für die Reihe "Hans Wagner - Gesammelte Schriften" sind 10 Bände geplant.

Das Werk steht zur Subskription. Die Subskriptionsfrist endet mit Erscheinen des letzten Bandes.

Author: Diana Gasparyan
Merab Mamardashvili (1930-1990) is a legend of Russian and Russian-Soviet philosophy. His work sought to cultivate an “awakening to thought,” to help his interlocuters distinguish between truth and falsity. This book serves as an in-depth investigation into the life and work of one of the most prominent philosophers of Russian and Russian-Soviet history, collecting his ideas here in one book. Diana Gasparyan explains the philosophical foundations of his ideas, as they relate to the broader traditions of philosophy of consciousness, phenomenology, existentialism, transcendental philosophy, and Continental philosophy. However, his ideas also lead much further - deep into philosophy itself, its cultural origins, and to the basis and roots of all human thought.

Die Reihe ist mit Band 3 abgeschlossen.

Die Benjamin-Studien sind ein internationales Forum für die Auseinandersetzung mit den Schriften und dem Denken Walter Benjamins. Sie erscheinen in einem ein- bis zweijährigen Rhythmus.

Das Potential von Benjamins Denk- und Arbeitsweise ist längst nicht erschöpft, die Komplexität seiner Schriften in vielen Teilen und Aspekten längst nicht erschlossen. Trotz der Fülle vorhandener Untersuchungen und Adaptionen hat sich - angesichts der Entwicklung von Künsten, Medien und Technik und angesichts aktueller Ereignisse im Feld von Religion und Politik - der Wirkungsradius von Benjamin jüngst in internationaler und interdisziplinärer Perspektive ausgeweitet.
