  • Download Die Moderne und Platon: Zwei Grundformen europäischer by Arbogast Schmitt PDF

    By Arbogast Schmitt

    Positionsbestimmung. Erhebt die Aufklärung zu Recht den Anspruch, zum ersten Mal eine kritische Erkenntnisbegründung gegeben zu haben? Der Autor geht diesem modernen Vorurteil und seinen historischen Gründen nach und zeigt, dass es angesichts eines großen Textcorpus antiker Erkenntniskritik nicht haltbar ist. Die Moderne hat nicht "die" Vernunft "entdeckt", sondern einen anderen Vernunftbegriff. Der Anspruch, allein dieser neue Vernunftbegriff garantiere Selbstbestimmung und Freiheit, hatte einen bis heute nachwirkenden Kulturbruch zur Folge. Das Buch öffnet den Blick auf andere Formen der Rationalität und auf neue Möglichkeiten der Verständigung mit der eigenen Geschichte.
