Il XIX è stato il secolo delle Masse e degli Individui: del movimento operaio e dei capitani d’industria, dei rivoluzionari e dei dandy, di Bakunin e Oscar Wilde, di Marx e Baudelaire. Ma è stato anche il secolo di Friedrich Nietzsche: l’epoca della morte di Dio e della nascita del Superuomo. Dopo Politiche della felicità e Le radicalità esistenziali, in quest’ultimo fra i volumi dedicati al XIX secolo, Michel Onfray ripercorre los angeles vicenda di due pensatori che hanno rivolto tutte le energie del loro corpo sofferente al conseguimento di una esistenza elegant e di una morale put up cristiana: Jean-Marie Guyau e soprattutto il suo più grande maestro, Friedrich Nietzsche. Una lettura vitalistica del mondo dirige il «dinamitardo di Röcken» nell’ostinata ricerca dell’espansione dell’essere, del puro piacere di esistere e di sperimentare los angeles potenza dell’esistere. Da vitalista tragico, però, egli crede che los angeles natura sia un caos di forze, un vortice di energie, in cui trionfa los angeles guerra di tutti contro tutti. in step with questo al padre del superuomo è stata spesso imputata l’apologia dell’assolutismo feudale, los angeles difesa dell’imperialismo, nonché (a causa delle falsificazioni della sorella) los angeles genesi del nazismo.

Sotto l. a. penna di Onfray, scopriamo invece un prosecutore della tradizione epicurea, un libertario che promuove una saggezza esistenziale personale, ma praticabile da tutti, senza distinzioni: abolire i dietromondi, dire di sì al proprio destino, fare della vita un’opera d’arte.

Most major difficulties of up to date lifestyles have their origins in nihilism and its paradoxical common sense, that is at the same time damaging to and constitutive of society. but, in social conception, nihilism is a shockingly under-researched subject.


This ebook develops a scientific account of nihilism in its 4 major types: escapism, radical nihilism, passive nihilism and 'perfect nihilism.' It focuses specifically at the disjunctive synthesis among passive nihilism (the negation of the desire) and radical nihilism (the will to negation), among the hedonism/disorientation that characterizes the modern post-political tradition and the rising different types of melancholy and violence as a response to it.


The e-book bargains with nihilism at 3 degrees. First, it addresses the family tree and results of nihilism, that's through an excursus via movie research. Then the e-book specializes in the 'social,' concerning nihilism to capitalism, post-politics and terrorism. one other excursus fleshes out the theoretical argumens by way of concentrating on Houellebecq's fiction. eventually, the probabilities of overcoming nihilism are thought of via emphasizing the importance of suggestions akin to occasion, agonism and antagonism during this context.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Philosophie des Mittelalters (ca. 500-1300), be aware: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Philosophisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Proseminar: Boethius, De consolatione philosophiae, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Bei einem Werk wie der Consolatio philosophiae des Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius, welche als die wohl berühmteste und einflussreichste Trostschrift der Philosophiegeschichte aufgefasst wird, ist die Frage nach dem Inhalt des Trostes, den der Trostsuchende und in einem weiteren Sinne auch der Leser erfahren soll, unumgänglich.

In dieser Arbeit möchte ich mich jener Frage widmen und herausarbeiten, womit und in welcher shape die personifizierte Philosophie den trauernden und verzweifelten Boethius tröstet und letztendlich, ob und wie weit ihr dies gelingt. Natürlich ist es bei einer Untersuchung solcher paintings entscheidend, welche genaue Bedeutung des Wortes Trost (lat. consolatio) zugrunde gelegt wird. Ich werde mich demnach zunächst dieser allgemeinen Definition und Differenzierung des Begriffes Trost zuwenden und im
weiteren Verlauf speziell auf den Trost in der Consolatio philosophiae eingehen, wobei ich mich auf die wesentlichen trostspendenden Aspekte jedes Buches beschränken werde.

Aufgrund der eigenen Aussage des Boethius, wonach die größte Ursache seines Kummers darin liegt, dass „während doch ein guter Lenker der Welt existiert, das Böse überhaupt sein kann und auch unbestraft hingeht“, lege ich bei den letzten beiden Büchern stärkeren Fokus auf Buch IV und die darin behandelten Frage nach Theodizee, thematisiere dafür Buch V mit seinen Ausführungen über die Verbindung von Vorsehung und freiem Willen weniger stark.
