Le culture si spendono per confinare l’inafferrabilità dell’evenienza, che è conseguenza dell’umana libertà. I modi del confinamento fanno appello a idee di razionalità e di socialità che vedono quell’afferrare come indispensabile e doveroso. Qui, come in 'Essere al mondo', si indaga invece l’originaria libertà dei rapporti tra mondo, mente e medio per conoscerla nell’immediatezza del suo darsi.

The settlement of Australia and New Zealand were among the most ambitions experiments in social engineering ever attempted.

This is my case for including ordinary people in national history throught an emerging genre of history known as the ‘new history from below’.

Thought-provoking philosophy with a smile. The world seems to be full of people who know things. Wherever you turn, there are those who are absolutely sure of this, positive about that, or certain that such and such is the case. This book stands in the face of this knowing and certainty, and denies it all. It states, and aims to show that, in reality: Nobody don’t know nothing.

En su obra más importante e influyente, Ser y tiempo (1927), Heidegger se preocupó de lo que consideraba la cuestión filosófica (y humana) esencial: ¿Qué es ser? Esto le llevaba a la pregunta, qué clase de ser (Sein) tienen los seres humanos. Y también a reflexionar sobre la esencialidad de la palabra, la verdad, la nada y todo el conjunto óntico y metafísico que nos referencia con el Ser.

Renato Descartes y David Hume habían iniciado una crítica del conocimiento humano y habían colocado la teoría del conocimiento antes de las investigaciones de orden metafísico. Lo que ellos buscaban era el origen de nuestras ideas. Para Descartes y los racionalistas las ideas eran innatas. Para Hume y los empiristas las ideas eran adquiridas.
An Essay concerning Human Enquiry: Exploring the Intersection of Hume and Kant — Perception, Causation and the Limits of Human Understanding
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 14,160. Language: English. Published: April 1, 2013. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Epistemology, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Metaphysics
Metaphysics is the search into existence, our existence within that existence, and our understanding of these existences. That is, how do we know what (or that) we know? This was a key question for Hume and Kant, and one which we shall consider. This essay, therefore, is a philosophical enquiry into human enquiry itself. We shall ask, how is it — and to what extent do — we understand our world?
