Idee e teorie filosofiche più rilevanti dell'ultimo secolo. La mappa interattiva di storia della filosofia fatta con migliaia di citazioni. Immaginiamo un grande appassionato di filosofia che prenda “l’Abbagnano“, un manuale di filosofia contemporanea, molti libri d’autore, e si metta a compilare—più per chiarire alcune idee a se stesso che per fare un favore agli altri—una singolare “mappa” di storia della filosofia da Eraclito, Epicuro, Epitteto, fino a Deleuze e oltre, passando per Cartesio, Kant, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer e Nietzsche.

La mappa interattiva di storia della filosofia fatta con migliaia di citazioni

Una mappa enorme, fatta di citazioni e concetti chiave dei filosofi disposti in ordine cronologico ma anche collegati in base alle affinità e alle divergenze. The History of Philosophy - Summarized & Visualized. This is my summary of the history of Western philosophy showing the positive/negative connections between some of the key ideas/arguments/statements of the philosophers.

The History of Philosophy - Summarized & Visualized

It is not an automated text analysis project; the content and the connections are the result of my years of reading and taking notes, so it’s a never-ending work-in-progress. It started with Bryan Magee’s The Story of Philosophy and Thomas Baldwin’s Contemporary Philosophy as the main references but it keeps expanding with dozens of others. (The reference is noted with the book icon that appears when you click on a statement.)

Western Philosophy. Introduction to Philosophy/The Branches of Philosophy. The Branches of Philosophy[edit] Western philosophy can be divided into six branches that have assumed various importance over time.

Introduction to Philosophy/The Branches of Philosophy

Traditionally metaphysics sets the questions for philosophy. Epistemology asks how do we know? Ethics and politics have to do with action and quality of life. Aesthetics or value theory has to do with beauty, balance, and harmony. Understanding philosophy in the 6th century b.c. involves taking into account different priorities than those of the 19th century a.d. Epistemology[edit] Philosophers and Their Works.

The foremost example of a privileged philosopher is Marcus Aurelius, famous expositor of Stoicism, and also, incidentally, Emperor of Rome. Yet we must also bear in mind that Epictetus, the other most famous expositor of Stoicism, whom Aurelius quotes repeatedly in his Meditations, was born a slave. Against certain tendencies of modern thinking, we might hazard to believe that both men shared enough common human experience to arrive at some universal principles fully applicable to everyday life. Stoicism, after all, is nothing if not practical. Consider, for example, the emperor’s advice below—how challenging it might be for anyone, and how beneficial, not only for the individual, but—as Aurelius makes plain—for everyone. The material is out there. Related Content: Vocabulaire philosophique.

Philosophy Index. Chronological List of Published Entries. Symbolic Logic.

Symbolic logic is the method of representing logical expressions through the use of symbols and variables, rather than in ordinary language.

Symbolic Logic

This has the benefit of removing the ambiguity that normally accompanies ordinary languages, such as English, and allows easier operation. Logic, metaphor, apocalypse. Autoréférence. Values. Explanations > Values About values | Historical values | Research on values | So what?


Values is a confusing word that often gets confused with 'value' as in the value you get from buying a cheap, but well-built house. Values are, in fact powerful drivers of how we think and behave. Racism is baked into the structure of dialectical philosophy. It is by now well known that some of the greatest modern philosophers held racist views.

Racism is baked into the structure of dialectical philosophy

John Locke (1632-1704), David Hume (1711-76), Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), G W F Hegel (1770-1831) and many others believed that Black and Indigenous peoples the world over were savage, inferior and in need of correction by European enlightenment. No serious philosopher today defends these explicitly racist views but, with good reason, they continue to study the writings of these authors. In order to hold on to the philosophical insights, scholars tend to make a distinction between the individual racism and the philosophical systems. Hegel might have been wrong for his racist writings about Africans and others, but that doesn’t tell us anything about his speculative metaphysics. Or so the argument goes. Let’s consider in some detail the case of Hegel, arguably the creator of the most systematic philosophy in modern thought. Updates on everything new at Aeon. Le vide métaphysique du personnalisme. Et nous pouvons faire suivre la liste avec le Danois Kierkegaard et la personne concrète au singulier, par opposition à l’humanité qui n’a ni mains ni pieds.

Le vide métaphysique du personnalisme

Pourquoi quelque chose plutôt que rien? On Subtlety. Meghan O’Gieblyn | Interior States | Anchor | October 2018 | 13 minutes (6,551 words) In ancient Rome, there were certain fabrics so delicate and finely stitched they were called subtilis, literally “underwoven.” The word—from which came the Old French soutil and the English subtle—often described the gossamer-like material that was used to make veils.

I think of organza or the finest blends of silk chiffon, material that is opaque when gathered but sheer when stretched and translucent when held up to the light. Most wedding veils sold today use a special kind of tulle called “bridal illusion,” a term I’ve always loved, as it calls attention to the odd abracadabra of the veil, an accoutrement that is designed to simultaneously reveal and conceal. Doris Lessing once complained that her novel The Golden Notebook was widely misinterpreted.

There are people, of course, who will argue that divergent readings are a sign of a work’s complexity. Philosophy & Stuff. Filosofia Antica. Philosophie. Héraclite.

This is a guest post by Donald Robertson. Donald is a cognitive-behavioral psychotherapist, trainer, and writer. Robertson has been tirelessly researching Stoicism and applying it in his work for twenty years. He is also the author of the remarkable new book on Marcus Aurelius, How To Think Like a Roman Emperor The Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius knew about using Stoicism to cope with chronic pain and illness. Tetrapharmakon : un remède épicurien. De tous les concepts issus de la philosophie antique, le terme épicurien est sans doute celui qui a été le plus déformé au fil du temps et est aujourd’hui le moins bien compris. Considéré de nos jours comme un synonyme de l’hédonisme, l’épicurisme est couramment évoqué dans les petites annonces échangistes, ou pour qualifier un mode de vie tourné exclusivement vers le plaisir personnel. Ce qui est un contre-sens quasiment intégral. Philosophe grec du quatrième siècle avant notre ère, Épicure a été célébré de son vivant, mais également dans les siècles qui ont suivi sa mort : il est sans conteste l’un des penseurs les plus influents des derniers siècles de l’Antiquité méditerranéenne et sa popularité, à l’époque, le place sur un pied d’égalité avec les plus grands.

L’amour selon Platon et Spinoza. Pythagoras & Sacred Geometry. Reposted from The Awakening Website Pythagoras was an Ionian Greek philosopher who lived during the time of Buddha, around 570-495 BC. He was born on the island of Samos in the North Agean Sea. Throughout his life, Pythagoras made influential contributions to philosophy and religious teaching, and is often revered as a great mathematician, mystic and scientist.

But only fragments of his writings survive to give clues to all of his many philosophies, the most famous fragment being a compos-ite entitled the Golden Verses. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. It was the standard belief in antiquity that Pythagoras undertook extensive travels for the sole purpose of accumulating knowledge and wisdom. Žižek on OOO. The core of object-ori­ented-onto­logy (ooo) developed by Levi Bry­ant1 can be summed up by the for­mula from sub­ject back to sub­stance. And, in so far as sub­ject is cor­rel­at­ive with mod­ern­ity (recall Lacan’s thesis about the Cartesian sub­ject as the sub­ject of mod­ern sci­ence), we can also say that ooo fol­lows the premise rendered by the title of Bruno Latour’s fam­ous book, We Were Never Modern—it endeavors to bring back the pre­mod­ern enchant­ment of the world.

40 Belief-Shaking Remarks From a Ruthless Nonconformist. If there’s one thing Friedrich Nietzsche did well, it’s obliterate feel-good beliefs people have about themselves. He has been criticized for being a misanthrope, a subvert, a cynic and a pessimist, but I think these assessments are off the mark. I believe he only wanted human beings to be more honest with themselves. He did have a remarkable gift for aphorism — he once declared, “It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book.” A hundred years after his death, Nietzsche retains his disturbing talent for turning a person’s worldview upside-down with one jarring remark.

Some Moral Dilemmas. The Trolley Problem, not in Grassian.

A trolley is running out of control down a track. In its path are five people who have been tied to the track by a mad philosopher. How to Make Our Ideas Clear. How to Make Our Ideas Clear Charles S. Peirce Popular Science Monthly 12 (January 1878), 286-302. Whoever has looked into a modern treatise on logic of the common sort, will doubtless remember the two distinctions between clear and obscure conceptions, and between distinct and confused conceptions.

They have lain in the books now for nigh two centuries, unimproved and unmodified, and are generally reckoned by logicians as among the gems of their doctrine. A clear idea is defined as one which is so apprehended that it will be recognized wherever it is met with, and so that no other will be mistaken for it.
