Osservazioni Filosofiche, 3rd Edition

Dopo l. a. pubblicazione del "Tractatus logico-philosophicus", Wittgenstein riprese sistematicamente a filosofare solo nel 1929, cioè dopo un intervallo di quasi quindici anni dalla stesura del suo primo libro. Se consideriamo che tutto il materiale da cui furono tratte le "Osservazioni filosofiche" risale a quel periodo, non sorprende di trovare in quest'opera una presa di coscienza e una radicale disamina dei lati più problematici o decisamente insostenibili del geniale sistema del "Tractatus".

Philosophie der Kultur- und Wissensformen: Ernst Cassirer neu lesen (Philosophie im Kontext von Gesellschaft und Wissenschaften) (German Edition)

Das Potenzial der Philosophie Ernst Cassirers ist keinesfalls erschöpft, sondern vielmehr in systematischer, transdisziplinärer und gesellschaftlich relevanter Perspektive anschlussfähig, um Fragestellungen der Gegenwartsphilosophie und der Wissenschaften zu begegnen. Die Cassirer-Rezeption befindet sich in dieser Hinsicht an der Schwelle des Eintritts in eine neue section, die im Lichte eines ‚Neulesens‘ sowie einer zunehmend globalen Vernetzung betrachtet werden kann.

Example text

The manuscript of this volume was finished a few months before Curtin's death, but it has been published posthumously without the advantage of his revision. CHARLES W. ELIOT. OCTOBER 20, 1909. Maps Map of Siberia Map Detail: Lake Baikal and environs Chapter 1. The Birthplace Of Mongol Activity THE Buriats whose myth-tales I have collected, and whose beliefs, modes of worship, and customs I have studied at their source and describe in this volume, are Mongols in the strictest sense of the word as men use it.

In time, however, they weakened, and Great Britain came to be the defender-in-chief and mainstay of those western Mongols, and Russia their main and chief attacker. So the spoilers of Tamerlane's descendants in India became the active allies of the Mongols on the Bosporus, and the enemy of that Russia who had pushed Mongol rule out of northern Europe. Had Jinghis Khan never lived, those Turks, or western Mongols, known afterward as Ottomans, would never have left Asia and ruled on the Bosporus.

The envoys took oath for Kuchum and his chief men, but not knowing how to write and having no seal they were unable to sign an oath paper; hence Ivan sent Chabúkoff, the son of a boyar, with envoys to Sibir, and there Kuchum and his chief men took the oath to Ivan, and put their seals to the oath papers. Mahmet Kul, mentioned variously as son, brother, nephew, and relative of Kuchum, was enraged that his people should bend before Russians. He attacked those who were willing to pay tribute to Moscow, captured their wives and children, and ended by assaulting Chabúkoff while that envoy was returning to Moscow; but learning that troops on the Chusóva were preparing to attack him he fled.
