Un si fragile vernis d'humanité : Banalité du mal, banalité by Michel Teretschenko

By Michel Teretschenko

On a pu espérer, un temps, que les monstruosités de l. a. Seconde Guerre mondiale étaient derrière nous. Définitivement. Or partout, à nouveau, on bloodbath, on torture, on extermine. remark comprendre cette facilité des hommes à entrer dans le mal ? Michel Terestchenko rouvre ici le débat, en complétant notamment l. a. démonstration de Hannah Arendt. Héros ou salaud ? C'est toujours une décision initiale, à peine perceptible, qui décide du côté dans lequel, une fois engagé, on se retrouvera in fantastic. Mais qu'est-ce qui explique cette décision ? C'est là où l'enquête de M. Terestchenko prend toute son ampleur. Elle montre combien est stérile l'opposition entre tenants de l. a. thèse de l'égoïsme psychologique et défenseurs de l'hypothèse d'un altruisme sacrificiel. Ce n'est pas par " intérêt " que l'on tue ou que l'on torture. Ni par pur altruisme qu'on se refuse à l'abjection. Les travaux qui analysent les phénomènes de soumission à l'autorité, de conformisme de groupe ou de passivité face à des occasions de détresse invitent à comprendre tout autrement les conduites de destructivité. Tirant les conclusions philosophiques de recherches récentes entreprises en psychologie sociale et s'appuyant sur certains exemples historiques particulièrement éclairants, l'auteur suggest de penser les conduites humaines face au mal selon un nouveau paradigme : celui de l'absence ou de l. a. présence à soi.

Alterity and Facticity: New Perspectives on Husserl by Vincenzo Costa (auth.), Natalie Depraz, Dan Zahavi (eds.)

By Vincenzo Costa (auth.), Natalie Depraz, Dan Zahavi (eds.)

Husserl's phenomenology has usually been criticized for its Cartesian, fundamentalistic, idealistic and solipsistic nature. this day, this frequent interpretation needs to be considered as being superseded, because it supplies yet a truly partial and restricted photo of Husserl's pondering. the ongoing e-book of Husserl's study manuscripts has disclosed analyses that have made it essential to revise and adjust a couple of regular readings.
This anthology records the new improvement in Husserl study. It comprises contributions from a few younger phenomenologists, who've all defended their dissertation on Husserl within the nineties, and it provides a brand new form of interpretation which emphasizes the scale of facticity, passivity, alterity and ethics in Husserl's thinking.

La volontà di sapere. Storia della sessualità 1 by Michel Foucault

By Michel Foucault

Questo quantity apre una serie di studi che non pretendono di essere continui, né esaustivi; si tratterà di qualche sondaggio in un territorio complesso. Il sogno sarebbe un lavoro di lungo respiro, capace di correggersi a mano a mano che si sviluppa, aperto alle reazioni che suscita, alle congiunture che gli toccherà d'incontrare, e forse a ipotesi nuove. I lettori che si aspettassero di apprendere in che modo in step with secoli l. a. gente ha fatto l'amore, o come è stato vietato di farlo - problema serio, importante, difficile -, rischiano di restare delusi. Non ho voluto fare una storia dei comportamenti sessuali nelle società occidentali, ma trattare un problema molto più austero e circoscritto: in che modi questi comportamenti sono diventati oggetti di sapere? Come, cioè according to quali vie e consistent with quali ragioni, si è organizzato questo campo di conoscenza che, con una parola recente, chiamiamo l. a. sessualità? Quel che i lettori troveranno qui è los angeles genesi di un sapere - un sapere che vorrei riafferrare alla radice, nelle istituzioni religiose, nelle forme pedagogiche, nelle pratiche mediche, nelle strutture familiari, là dove si è formato, ma anche negli effetti di coercizione che ha potuto avere sugli individui, una volta che li aveva persuasi del compito di scoprire in se stessi l. a. forza segreta e pericolosa di una sessualità." (Dalla prefazione dell'autore all'edizione italiana)
