Philosophy Resources: Websites. 29 Oxford University Philosophy Lectures. Aviso de derrumbe. No es extraño que Alemania, el país que ha producido mentes como las de Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche o Marx, tenga devoción por la filosofía, lo inusual es que la nueva revelación del pensamiento alemán —tronco inevitable del pensamiento occidental moderno— sea un autor oriental que cuando era un treintañero cambió Corea del Sur por Europa.

Aviso de derrumbe

Hoy los libros de ese autor, Byung-Chul Han, son prestigiosos superventas en un país que todavía discute apasionadamente a sus filósofos vivos, sean Jürgen Habermas, Peter Sloterdijk o Richard David Precht. Han ya es uno de ellos. Byung-Chul Han nació en 1959 en Seúl y allí estudió metalurgia, pero pronto llegó a la conclusión de que con aquello no iba a ninguna parte. La carrera ni siquiera le interesaba. Decidió instalarse en Alemania y estudiar literatura, aunque acabó interesado en la filosofía. El esclavo de hoy es el que ha optado por el sometimiento. Cualquier cosa menos volver a la metalurgia que había dejado en Corea. An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding/David Hume. Rhetoric - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Painting depicting a lecture in a knight academy, painted by Pieter Isaacsz or Reinhold Timm for Rosenborg Castle as part of a series of seven paintings depicting the seven independent arts.

This painting illustrates rhetorics. From Ancient Greece to the late 19th century, it was a central part of Western education, filling the need to train public speakers and writers to move audiences to action with arguments.[4] The word is derived from the Greek ῥητορικός (rhētorikós), "oratorical",[5] from ῥήτωρ (rhḗtōr), "public speaker",[6] related to ῥῆμα (rhêma), "that which is said or spoken, word, saying",[7] and ultimately derived from the verb ἐρῶ (erō), "say, speak".[8] Uses of rhetoric[edit] Scope of rhetoric[edit]

Critical Thinking. Plato. Stoicism. Descartes. Locke, Berkeley, Hobbes. Hume and Kant. The 1700s saw many great thinkers who have left a lasting impact on modern philosophy and science -- and psychology.

Hume and Kant

But there were two who would, between them, define the nature of science, especially psychology. They are, of course, David Hume and Immanuel Kant. David Hume was born April 26, 1711 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father died the following year and left the estate to his eldest son, John. John ensured that David would receive a good Presbyterian upbringing and sent him -- at the age of 12 -- to the University of Edinburgh.

Personality: Tests, Types, Theories. Martha Nussbaum. Other Thinkers. Joshua Knobe & x-phi. A new breed of thinkers takes the search for wisdom to the street.

Joshua Knobe & x-phi

Josh Knobe has comfortable seating in his philosophy department office at Yale University—a small couch somewhere between a love seat and a sofa in size. It is most decidedly not, however, an armchair, which might seem a trivial distinction. But in Knobe's world, one's position on armchairs can be a matter of grave import. Albert Bandura.

Work[edit] He is known for his defence of dialetheism, his in-depth analyses of the logical paradoxes (holding the thesis that there is a uniform treatment for many well-known paradoxes, such as the semantic, set-theoretic and Liar paradoxes), and his many writings related to paraconsistent and other non-classical logics.

Daniel Smith. I believe that people are mostly at different levels of awareness or consciousness in their lives and that we look at life through our own set of glasses.

Most of us are functioning based on ideas and theories that have been passed on from generation to generation and so we are seeing the world through our ideas and not necessarily looking at reality. As a species we have advanced tremendously in technology and commerce, but one thing we have neglected to advance in is consciousness, the ability to be awake in the world. Today’s society has become extremely efficient at doing things with little or no awareness, we just run on auto pilot.

IQs and Zs Night owls are smarter than other people, and now we may know why. The modern world contains many features our slow-to-evolve brains still find unfamiliar—cars, TVs, hot dogs on a stick. But the world has always thrown new stuff at us, and brighter humans may adapt more ably. KOHLBERG'S STAGES OF MORAL DEVELOPMENT. What Does Lacan Say About… Desire?

American Psychological Association Bolstered C.I.A. Torture Program, Report Says. WASHINGTON — The American Psychological Association secretly collaborated with the administration of President to bolster a legal and ethical justification for the torture of prisoners swept up in the post-Sept. 11 war on terror, according to a new report by a group of dissident health professionals and human rights activists. The report is the first to examine the association’s role in the interrogation program. It contends, using newly disclosed emails, that the group’s actions to keep psychologists involved in the interrogation program coincided closely with efforts by senior Bush administration officials to salvage the program after the public disclosure in 2004 of graphic photos of prisoner abuse by American military personnel at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.
