Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's Philosophy of Right is widely acknowledged as one of the most important texts in the history of moral and political philosophy. While exerting a profound influence on several major philosophical movements, the groundbreaking 1820 work continues to shape philosophical thought. Hegel's Philosophy of Right presents a collection of new essays by leading international philosophers and Hegel scholars who analyse and explore Hegel's key contributions in the areas of ethics, politics, and law. Contributions address issues that include ethics, the relationship of Hegelian ethics with contemporary debates in value theory, the so-called "empty formalism" objection that Hegel directs at Immanuel Kant's moral philosophy, Hegel's understanding of law, justice, and political issues that shed new light on Hegel's ideas of punishment, ethical life, and family. Scholarly and thought-provoking, Hegel's Philosophy of Right offers important new insights into our understanding of Hegel's seminal Philosophy of Right and the broader world of Hegelian philosophy. Thom Brooks is Reader in Political and Legal Philosophy at Newcastle University. He is editor and founder of the Journal of Moral Philosophy . His books include Hegel's Political Philosophy: A Systematic Reading of the Philosophy of Right (2007). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Ashby.

The Book of Job: A Biography , Hörbuch, Digital...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Book of Job raises stark questions about the nature and meaning of innocent suffering and the relationship of the human to the divine, yet it is also one of the Bible's most obscure and paradoxical books, one that defies interpretation even today. Mark Larrimore provides a panoramic history of this remarkable book, traversing centuries and traditions to examine how Job's trials and his challenge to God have been used and understood in diverse contexts, from commentary and liturgy to philosophy and art. Larrimore traces Job's obscure origins and his reception and use in the Midrash, burial liturgies, and folklore, and by figures such as Gregory the Great, Maimonides, John Calvin, Immanuel Kant, William Blake, Margarete Susman, and Elie Wiesel. He chronicles the many ways the Book of Job's interpreters have linked it to other biblical texts; to legends, allegory, and negative and positive theologies; as well as to their own individual and collective experiences. Larrimore revives old questions and provides illuminating new contexts for contemporary ones. Was Job a Jew or a gentile? Was his story history or fable? What is meant by the "patience of Job," and does Job exhibit it? Why does God speak yet not engage Job's questions? Offering rare insights into this iconic and enduring book, Larrimore reveals how Job has come to be viewed as the Bible's answer to the problem of evil and the perennial question of why a God who supposedly loves justice permits bad things to happen to good people. 1.

Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals
13,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Considered one of the most profound, influential, and important works of philosophy, Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals introduces the famous Categorical Imperative and lays down a foundation for all of Immanuel Kant's writings. In it, Kant illuminates the basic concept that is central to his moral philosophy and, in fact, to the entire field of modern ethical thought: the Categorical Imperative, the supreme principle of morality, stating that all decisions should be made based on what is universally acceptable. Featuring the renowned translation and commentary of Oxford's H. J. Paton, this volume has long been considered the definitive English edition of Kant's classic text. 'Kant's Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals,' Paton writes in his preface, 'is one of the small books which is truly great: it has exercised on human thought an influence almost ludicrously disproportionate to its size.'

The Book of Psalms
48,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jeffrey Cohen employs his poetic skill and biblical scholarship to the challenging task of rendering the Book of Psalms into rhymed verse. While there are several fine renderings into English blank verse, notably that of Robert Alter, it is Cohen's belief that it is the rhymed verse genre that can best convey the vibrant and passionate spirit of the original Hebrew poetry, and its innate lyricism that lent it, so naturally and from ancient times, to musical and choral accompaniment. This highly original work conveys the inner meaning, lyricism, and message of the psalms in a manner that will engage and inspire adherents of all faiths and none. It also provides a useful exegetical tool for all who use the Bible for study, teaching, or preaching, demystifying many words and phrases whose meaning translators and commentators acknowledge as uncertain in the original text. This is as much a commentary as a work of poetry, as testified to by the endorsements of several Cambridge University biblical and Hebrew scholars. Before proceeding to create his poetry, the writer consulted the ancient Greek and Latin translations, as well as medieval and modern Jewish and non-Jewish interpretations, in order to attempt to clarify many of the acknowledged textual difficulties in the psalms. In many cases this impelled him to offer his own original interpretations. Readers will find these most helpful in clarifying the thematic link between many succeeding lines and paragraphs that, on a cursory reading of the standard translations, may appear disconnected. For scholars and students of the Bible this work will offer a novel perspective. For those who use the psalms for devotional purposes, this new edition will serve as an inspirational source, and for those whose interest is purely in the poetry, there is also much to appeal. ''Every new translation of a classic text affords us a fresh perspective on the power and beauty of the original. In this striking and wonderfully accessible translation of the Book of Psalms, Rabbi Dr. Jeffrey Cohen gives us renewed insight into the greatest of all books of religious poetry, the unsurpassed music of the soul as it sings its songs to God.'' --Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, former Chief Rabbi of Great Britain ''Dr. Jeffrey Cohen employs his poetic skill and biblical scholarship to the challenging task of rendering the Book of Psalms into rhymed verse. This groundbreaking work conveys the inner meaning, lyricism, and message of the psalms in a manner that will engage and inspire adherents of all faiths and none . . . So much in the poems is arresting and impressive, at times downright brilliant!'' --Robert Gordon, former Regius Professor of Hebrew, St Catharine's College, Cambridge, UK ''You really do a most impressive job on these difficult texts, combining sound renderings with literary polish and exegetical allusion.'' Professor Stefan Reif, Former Professor of Hebrew and Director of The Taylor-Schechter Genizah Unit, Cambridge University ''I can see why they impress, and they would make an attractive volume.'' Professor Nathan MacDonald, University Lecturer in Hebrew Bible, University of Cambridge ''One of my retirement projects is an attempt to get to know the Psalms. As I work my way through them I look at various translations as well as the original Hebrew text. Your version in many passages is blisteringly original and immensely topical. I look forward keenly to reading the Jeffrey Cohen Psalter when it appears.'' Philip Skelker, Former Headmaster, Immanuel College, Bushey, and English Master, Eton College ''Thank you so much for the privilege of pre-viewing your magnum opus. As a 'man in the pew', I mumble the psalms, only occasionally

Michael Haneke's Cinema
152,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Wheatley provides excellent close readings of a number of films and crucial film scenes. The book as a whole could be used in conjunction with a film course on Haneke, or its various chapters would lend themselves to discussions in graduate and even undergraduate courses on contemporary European film...The writing style is clear and while it pursues a critical theoretical analysis, it remains free from jargon. ' · Monatshefte 'What distinguishes Catherine Wheatley's work from other scholarship on Haneke is her close examination of spectatorship and the consideration of the connection between film medium and self-awareness... In rich detail, Wheatley cleverly interweaves the narrative and formal aspects of Haneke's films with audience response and Haneke's ethical intention. Through analysing the forging of the amalgam of first- and second-generation modernist conventions, generic structure and the star system, this book develops a convincing paradigm for evaluating the spectatorship of Michael Haneke's films and broadens the scope of what is called (in the book's title) 'the ethic of the image'.' · Senses of Cinema 'Both her exacting discussions of the films themselves and the even-handed, pointed summations of the critical debate around them are impressive feats...her succinct prose is eminently readable, even where couched in scholarly language.' · Sight & Sound, The International Film Magazine 'This is a bold, lucid, fiercely intelligent book, a vital addition to the study of contemporary cinema by one of the UK's brightest young film critics.' · Screen 'Wheatley has initiated an important conversation regarding Haneke and the ethics of spectatorship that will bring a good many others to the table.' · New Review of Film and Television Studies 'Haneke stands as one of world cinema's most important auteurs, and as such his work demands the kind of lucid and rigorous interrogation provided here. This is an essential book - the real first step in an understanding and an elucidation of Haneke's oeuvre.' · Ben McCann, University of Adelaide Existing critical traditions fail to fully account for the impact of Austrian director, and 2009 Cannes Palm d'Or winner, Michael Haneke's films, situated as they are between intellectual projects and popular entertainments. In this first English-language introduction to, and critical analysis of, his work, each of Haneke's eight feature films are considered in detail. Particular attention is given to what the author terms Michael Haneke's 'ethical cinema' and the unique impact of these films upon their audiences. Drawing on the moral philosophy of Immanuel Kant and Stanley Cavell, Catherine Wheatley, introduces a new way of marrying film and moral philosophy, which explicitly examines the ethics of the film viewing experience. Haneke's films offer the viewer great freedom whilst simultaneously imposing a considerable burden of responsibility. How Haneke achieves this break with more conventional spectatorship models, and what its far-reaching implications are for film theory in general, constitute the principal subject of this book. Catherine Wheatley holds degrees from the universities of Bath and Oxford, and is currently a researcher at the University of Southampton. She is a regular contributor to Sight & Sound magazine, as well as having published articles in several journals and books.
