Friedrich Albert Lange
This question is as old as philosophy itself. Fichte and F. Schelling also confront the problem. Developing the doctrine of the absolute, they try to conceptualise a supreme living unity in such a way that plurality is always already included. Although, at this time, Fichte and Schelling no longer approve of the other s philosophical framework, their reflections show a considerable proximity: Hidden under a generous layer of polemics, it is possible to discover quite comparable arguments, ideas and metaphors about the living unity of plurality.
From the 15th to the beginning of the 18th century, texts of various origins show an intensive reception of the Church Fathers. The reappropriation of the patristic tradition developed mainly due to two historical and systematic factors: on the one hand under the conditions of the Reformation theology of the emerging denominations, as a result of which the "consensus patrum" guaranteed the authenticity of the "true church.
From antiquity to contemporary scholarship, the "consensus patrum" along with the "translatio sapientiae" were the prerequisites for this tradition. Una ipotesi di attribuzione - Thorsten M. It is only in stories that history can manifest itself. Where nothing is told about history, it cannot be resolved, it remains hidden in its temporality and its meaning. Based on Schelling, Heidegger and Blumenberg, and critical of Hegel and Foucault, this book shows how contingent, absolute events are experienced as stories and presented as narrated knowledge.
As reports of revelations, as philosophical folk literature of the lifeworld, as aesthetic sensuous impositions or aporias of a discursive display of power, stories try to hold fleetingness at bay. In doing so, they are constantly creating the paradox of describing and losing the absolutism of reality at the same time. As an epistomology of intellectual experience, Geschichte wissen Knowing History also applies to theology, history and literary theory.
The first volume deals with the foundation of the Christian Kabbalah from the late Middle Ages up until the end of the 16th century. This volume begins with the basic prehistory of this doctrine ranging from Maimonides to Nikolaus von Kues. Giovanni Pico della Mirandola and, above all, Johannes Reuchlin provide the actual conception of the main topoi.
The Christian Kabbalah becomes a downright fashionable science: the Roman cardinal Aegidius of Viterbo, the Venetian Minor and prior Giorgio Veneto Zorzi , the imperial and electoral doctor Agrippa of Nettesheim as well as the Franciscan Arcangelo da Borgonovo from Bologna further developed the Kabbalistic concepts and positions.
The French philologist and prophet Guillaume Postel was the intellectually dominating figure throughout the second half of the 16th century. Thus, this volume brings together all important authors of the Christian Kabbalah during the Renaissance. According to an almost common perception, above all in Germany, the Reformation and nascent Protestantism had made a radical break with the Middle Ages.
This widespread theory led to a situation which did require an explanation, i. This long tradition of self-understanding can no longer remain unquestioned. Thus the tremendous research efforts made in recent years make the theory of a radical gap between the Reformation and its Middle Ages and thus also the perception of Protestantism and its relationship to these seem more than questionable.
This provides us with a new view of the Reformation and "its" Middle Ages. The theological discourse in Kant s works is integrated as an absolute justification into an overall philosophical concept and thus does not act independently of this. Based on this theory, the logic of the movement of thought in the theological discourse is rendered comprehensible through the movement of thought of the overall philosophical discourse. Thus it is shown that the transition from an affirmation of the existence of God, as it is phrased paradigmatically in the so-called ontotheological argument, to the point of an affirmation of God as a merely subjective concept of reason should be dated later than is generally assumed in recent research.
It is also shown that the theological assertion remains in its function as a justification for authority. This results in an important suggestion for a new interpretation of the chapter on theology in the Critique of Pure Reason. It is confirmed that developmental history can make a substantial contribution to a deeper understanding of the substantive problems in the Critique of Pure Reason.
Melanchthon s books on Aristoteles Nichomachean Ethics are some of his most successful works. They were revised several times during his lifetime and there were several new editions after his death. The Latin-German edition of these two books is based on the original Wittenberg edition from and does not incorporate numerous unsubstantianted variants which can be found in the first edition, the Corpus Reformatorum , published in , which has been out of print for decades. Consequently, these texts are at the heart of ongoing academic controversy about the consistency of Steiner s intellectual development and his relationship to Anglo-Indian Theosophy and traditional Christianity.
The fifth volume presents these foundational texts of Anthroposophy for the first time in critical edition, thus providing a much needed textual basis for the discourse about Steiner and the validity and significance of his work. A critical apparatus documents the rich textual evolution of these writings while introduction and commentary position them within the context of the authors work as a whole, the Christian and Theosophist traditions of meditation and spiritual exercise and the psychodynamic theories of Sigmund Freud and C.
Jung which emerged roughly at the same time. Another appeal of the volume is that these writings on cognitive development are presented for the first time within the context of Steiner s little known experiments with masonic ritual between and An appendix presents letters and internal documents that document his work as spiritual teacher within what was then the Esoteric School of the Theosophical Society. This edition of the Dialecticae libri duo is the last and most influentical of Petrus Ramus Peter Ramus works.
The Life of August Wilhelm Schlegel
In the tradition of Agricola, it provides an introduction to the Ciceronian topos and reflects on the extent to which systematic instructions for reaching a judgment are possible. Drawing on the literary classics Virgil, Ovid und Cicero , it is a stylistic sign of the dissociation from the Scholastic tradition.
Although Ramus does deal with formal elements of Aristotelian logic, he does so with a special method which allowed Ramism to become the the counter-concept to Aristotelian Scholastic philosophy in the 16th and 17th century. This edition makes this pivotal text of Ramism available once again, along with a new translation and introduction. The Triumph der Philosophie , Triumph of Philosophy written by the Altdorf scholar Nicolaus Taurellus , first published in Basel in , is one of the first treatises on Aristotelian metaphysics during the Reformation period in Germany.
Harshly criticized by his theological contemporaries because of his basic theory that philosophy itself is the basis of faith, Enlightenment scholars such as Pierre Bayle and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz called him an outstanding philosopher.

Taurellus' treatise, of which two editions were published by , set a precedent for the early modern tradition of the speculative doctrine of God. There are vast amounts of research and publications on Marcus Tullius Cicero 43 v. This is not however the case as far as his impact is concerned, especially in the early modern period. His writings in this time had an immense presence, which has previously not received much attention in research. The articles in this volume, the result of a symposium held by the European Melanchthon Academy in Bretten, document and analyze the traces and the impact of Cicero s writings in this era.
Thus this book conducts fundamental research in an area which up to now had been largely unexplored. Using specific examples, the articles show the reception of Cicero in the early modern period from the perspective of historiography, literature, literary criticism and rhetoric and deal particularly with the forms of impact and appropriation which his works took as well as their theological implications.
The philosophy of the Socinians, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz once claimed, brought about a fundamental change in Early Modern Philosophy. Nevertheless, the history of Philosophy has rarely given the Socinians the attention they deserve.
The present study reconstructs their philosophy for the first time and interprets it as a deeply rooted branch of Renaissance Aristotelianism. The study contains two parts. In the first part, the Socinian concept of philosophy is developed. John Crell and Joachim Stegmann are the main characters, particularly how they changed the perception of how faith and reason is related. The second part describes the alteration of the Socinian concepts of matter and soul. The focus here is on Christopher Stegmann, who through his Metaphysics turned Socinian theology into a radical materialism.
The fourth and last volume of the Geschichte der christlichen Kabbala History of the Christian Kabbalah renders the first three volumes accessible and contains the first bibliography on this subject. All those works which are essential for this field of research have been listed in the bibliography. Neuwirth, J. When plague struck Leszno in Comenius published a pamphlet outlining ways that the city could address the health issues of the plague while treating the victims humanely.
Pan: Untersuchungen zur Comenius-Terminologie. The Rosicrucian Enlightenment. Yates opened up new avenues of research with this book that demonstrated that the social, political, and scientific reform movements of the Early Modern period were often rooted in Christian mysticism and hermeticism. Comenius is one of the major figures in her study.
Prof. Dr. Anke te Heesen — Chair for the History of Science
Much of the interest in Comenius in the 20th century, particularly after World War II, stems from his writings on peace and social justice, which have been valued by Marxist and non-Marxist historians alike. Kumpera cited under Influence of Comenius offers a good review of the new appreciation for Comenius as a political thinker that emerged in the second half of the 20th century. Schroer, H.
