By
Price: $3.50 USD. Words: 3,460. Language: Japanese. Published: January 5, 2015. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Movements / Phenomenology
現象学は、従来にない豊かな可能性を哲学にもたらした。現象学的に根拠を問う時、人は、現象の相関項としての超越論的主観の存在を自覚する。しかし、学の基礎付けはそれで十分なのだろうか。本書は、第一章でエトムント・フッサールの現象学的哲学を、第二章ではマックス・シェーラーの現象学的倫理学を批判的に検討しつつ、第三章で、現象学的還元・構成・破壊をモデルにした目的論的還元・構成・破壊による、現象学、とりわけ実質的価値倫理学の超越論的基礎付けを試みる。

When we think about postmodernism we have to consider its implication in every aspect of society and none would doubt that homosexuality is one of these major implication especially for the contemporary church. The influence of relativism and the paradigm shift in humanity made homosexuality not just acceptable, but in many cases a norm.

By

This installment argues that "The Secret" is emblematic of the greater social milieu we are finding ourselves in at this time. For this reason I isolated it as a particularly good example of how similar frauds are conveyed. It shows how easily we may unknowingly give away our power to quacks and con-men. That's if we fail to think critically, instead to abandon our sanity to reckless delusion.
