Abstract

Ce volume se propose de rouvrir les recherches sur la confrontation entre Spinoza et Malebranche, à laquelle l’histoire de la philosophie s’est jusqu’ici peu livrée, ou dont elle ne s’est guère acquittée que sous les formes figées de la triangulation (la lecture croisée des deux auteurs dans leur rapport à Descartes) ou de la réfutation (de Spinoza seul, ou de Malebranche – voire de Descartes – compromis par la proximité du spinozisme). Ce livre fait d’abord un état des lieux de la question en situant les deux auteurs par rapport à l’héritage cartésien et en restituant les discussions polémiques autour du spinozisme de Malebranche. Les textes recueillis examinent ensuite de nouvelles pistes et effectuent des rapprochements inédits, afin d’accroître à la fois notre connaissance des deux systèmes que celle de leur réception : ils donnent lieu à un face à face spéculatif qui explore aussi bien l’ontologie et la théorie de la connaissance que l’éthique et la politique.

Abstract

"In view of the challenges—many of which are political—that different European countries are currently facing, scholars who work on the eighteenth century have compiled this anthology which includes earlier recognitions of common values and past considerations of questions which often remain pertinent nowadays. During the Enlightenment, many men and women of letters envisaged the continent’s future in particular when stressing their hope that peace could be secured in Europe. The texts gathered here, and signed by major thinkers of the time (Rousseau, Montesquieu, Voltaire, Kant, Hume or Staël for instance), as well as by writers history has forgotten, present the reflections, with a couple of chronological extensions (from Sully to Victor Hugo) of authors from the long eighteenth century—the French Empire and the fall of Napoleon generated numerous upheavals—on Europe, its history, its diversity, but also on what the nations, which, in all their diversity, make up a geographical unit, have in common. They show the historical origins of the project of a European union, the desire to consolidate the continent’s ties to the Maghreb or to Turkey, the importance granted to commerce and the worries engendered by history’s convulsions, but also the hope vested in future generations. The Idea of Europe follows its sister edition in French, L’idée de l’Europe au Siècle des Lumières, also published by Open Book."

Abstract

Nella prospettiva che Metzinger difende nelle lezioni raccolte in questo volume, l’io, come scrive nell’introduzione Alfredo Paternoster, «viene a configurarsi come nulla di più di un’utile recita, una sorta di allucinazione, costruita però con materiali genuini». Sullo sfondo dell’eredità di Hume, ripresa oggi da Dennett, Metzinger delinea un ampio programma di ricerca, anche empirica, inteso a mostrare come si pervenga a una rappresentazione del sé; tale rappresentazione tuttavia non attesta l’esistenza di qualcosa come una coscienza.

Abstract

" Continuing the analysis of contemporary issues through the lens of ancient theories beyond the themes of Enduring Empire and the award-winning On Oligarchy, On Civic Republicanism explores the enduring relevance of the ancient concepts of republicanism and civic virtue to modern questions about political engagement and identity. Examining both ancient and early modern conceptions of civic republicanism, the contributors respond to the work of thinkers ranging from Plato and Aristotle to Machiavelli, Montesquieu, and Wollstonecraft. A testament to the continuing influence of the concept and the ongoing scholarly debate which surrounds it, On Civic Republicanism addresses fundamental questions regarding democratic participation, liberal democracy, and the public good. Its essays speak to the many ways in which the idea of the republic still challenges us today."
