    University of Ottawa Press 2008; US$ 16.99

    Richard Sembera introduces the reader to the essential features of Being and Time , Heidegger's main work in clear and unambiguous English.

This... more...

    OUP Oxford 1998; US$ 5.99

    In his celebrated masterpiece, Symposium, Plato imagines a high-society dinner-party in Athens in 416 BC at which the guests - including the comic poet Aristophanes and, of course, Plato's mentor Socrates - each deliver a short speech in praise of love. The sequence of dazzling speeches culminates in Socrates' famous account of the views of Diotima,... more...

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2007; US$ 34.35

    Darwins Schrift Über die Entstehung der Arten (1859) löste eine neue Debatte aus, die sich zeitlich und inhaltlich unmittelbar an den Materialismus- Streit anschloß.

  • Der Mensch zwischen Natur und Kulturby Rolf Oerter; Peter Janich

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2012; US$ 15.13

    Es ist nicht neu, dass sich die Wissenschaften mit dem Menschen befassen. Neu ist aber, dass ein Zuständigkeitskonflikt zwischen Natur- und Kulturwissenschaften entbrannt ist.

  • Platonicus amorby Achim Wurm

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 126.00

    This analysis of the historical understanding of Marsilio Ficino?s commentary on Plato?s Symposium sets it in relationship to the philosophical interpretation of Eros in Plato and Plotinus, while at the same time providing a multi-faceted description of the place of Ficino?s philosophy in the intellectual and spiritual development of the... more...

  • Selbstbewusstsein in der Spätantikeby Matthias Perkams

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 224.00

    The three ancient commentaries on Aristotle's On the Soul ( De anima ) are interesting because the commentators, as neo-Platonists, understand the soul completely differently than Aristotle. For them, the soul is the inseperable life principle of the body, a spiritual entity. In response to this challenge, the commentator Priscian (ca. 530... more...

To achieve this, the author paraphrases the Critiques , and interprets them from a common epistemic horizon; furthermore he takes up relevant positions from the research literature. The accents set by this view lead... more...
