Abstract

Comment et pourquoi la philosophie juridique et politique contemporaine est-elle revenue à Kant ? Il faut, pour le comprendre, s’intéresser d’abord à l’ancrage de la pensée du droit dans la théorie kantienne de la raison pratique et aux problèmes que pose le statut kantien d’une raison normative oeuvrant dans les deux champs coordonnés de l’éthique et du droit. L’articulation entre droit privé et droit public, entre droit et politique dans la Métaphysique des moeurs doit être considérée en re...

Abstract

What did Immanuel Kant really think about love? This book is the first in-depth study of the concept of love in Kant`s philosophy. It argues that love is much more important to Kant than previously thought, and that understanding love is actually essential for Kantian ethical life. Perhaps surprisingly, for Kant, love permeates human existence from the strongest impulses of nature to the highest ideals of morally deserved happiness.

Abstract

Multicultural Dynamics and the Ends of History provides a strikingly original reading of key texts in the philosophy of history by Kant, Hegel, and Marx, as well as strong arguments for why these texts are still relevant to understanding history today. Réal Fillion offers a critical exposition of the theses of these three authors on the dynamics and the ends of history, in order to provide an answer to the question: "Where are we headed?" Grounding his answer in the twin observations that the world is becoming increasingly multicultural and increasingly unified, Fillion reasserts the task of the speculative philosophy of history as it had been understood by German philosophy: the articulation and understanding the historical process as a developmental whole.

Abstract

What does it mean to judge when there is no general and universal norm to define what is right and what is wrong? Can laws be absent and is law always necessary? This is the first publication of an English translation of Jean-Luc Nancy’s acclaimed consideration of the law’s most pervasive principles in the context of actual systems and contemporary institutions, power, norms, laws. In a world where it is clearly impossible to imagine the realization of an ideal of justice that corresponds to every person’s ideal of justice, Nancy probes the limits of legal normativity starting from this problem. Moreover, the question is asked: how can legal normativity be legitimized? A legal order based on performativity and formal validity is questionable and forces below that of juridical normativity are at the heart of Dies Irae’s critical inquiry. This leads inevitably to the processes of inclusion and exclusion that characterize contemporary juridical systems and those issues of identity, hostility and self-representation so central to contemporary European and global political and legal debates.

Abstract

This book explores how, in Kant’s world view, our actions are informed, contextualized and dependent on the tension between emotion and reason. Arguing that affects and passions are illnesses of the mind, because both hinder the sovereignty of reason, Borges demonstrates Kant’s recognition of the malleability of reason. To this end, the book explores the full range of negative and positive emotions in Kant’s work, including self-control, compassion, sympathy, as well as anger. Kant’s argument on the gendered nature of emotion, that women’s innate morality disciplined men’s tendency to behave in immoral ways, is also discussed. Finally, Borges shows how Kant’s theory of emotion includes both physiological and cognitive aspects. Emotion, Reason and Action in Kant is an important new contribution to Kant Studies, suitable for students of Kant, ethics, and moral psychology.

Abstract

The book addresses the debate on whether the representational content of perceptual experience is conceptual or non-conceptual, by bringing out the points of comparison between Kant’s conception of intuition and the contemporary accounts of non-conceptual content, encountered in the writings of G. Evans, Ch. Peacocke, F. Dretske, T. Crane, M. G. F. Martin, and others. Following R. Aquila’s reading of Kant’s conception of representation, the author argues that intuition (Anschauung, intuitus) provides the most basic form of intentionality – pre-conceptual reference to objects, which underlies the acts of conceptualization and judgment. The book advances an interpretation of Kant’s theory of experience in the light of such questions as: Does conscious perceptual experience of objects require that subjects possess concepts of these objects? Do the contents of experience differ from the contents of beliefs or judgments? And if they do, what accounts for this difference? These questions take us to the most puzzling philosophical topic of the relation between mind and world. Anna Tomaszewska argues that this relation does not involve conceptual capacities alone but also, on the most basic level of perceptual experience, pre-cognitive “sensible intuition,” enabling relatedness to objects that remains uninformed by concepts. In a nutshell, on her interpretation, Kant can be taken to subscribe to the view that perceptual cognition does not have rational underpinnings.

Abstract

Kant's reflections on animals open up a hitherto overlooked approach to his conception of human intuition and imagination. In her book, Rahel Villinger shows how Kant's aesthetics, epistemology, and theory of history must be reread against the background of the assumption of sensible cognition in non-rational animals. Kant as a frigid thinker of human reason, who sees in the forces of sensibility nothing but immorality and animal baseness: this prejudice is still widespread. However, sensibility for Kant is first and foremost an autonomous and independent faculty of cognition through intuition and imagination. In this way, Kant’s account of sensibility differs radically from that of the rationalist school philosophy of his day and also from the newly emerging philosophy of German idealism. Furthermore, Kant thought that we need the imagination of other animals to be able to critically think our own. Therefore, an imagination of animals with Kant includes both: the notion of a superhuman power of purely sensible intuition and imagination whose singularity and immediacy reflect the perfection and infinity of divine intuition; and the specific imagination of rational animals, whose descriptive activity combines image and writing, intuition and concept, and which becomes possible only through the imagination of their prehistorical origin - their animal prototype. Kant’s reflections on animals thus reveal a hidden ambiguity in his thinking of sensible nature, which lives on in the foundations of modern aesthetics, poetics, and image theory.

Abstract

Ce volume regroupe trente-neuf articles publiés entre 1893 et 1917 par le philosophe de la logique, des mathématiques et du langage que fut Louis Couturat (1868-1914). Ces articles, publiés pendant dans diverses revues, en particulier dans la Revue de métaphysique et de morale, sont ici rassemblés pour la première fois. Ils portent essentiellement sur la logique, la philosophie des mathématiques et celle du langage sous l’angle de la langue universelle. Ils illustrent aussi la vigueur du lien entre sciences et philosophie à cette époque. Ce volume n’est pas seulement intéressant pour mieux comprendre les thèses rationalistes que défendit Couturat au tournant des XIXe et XXe siècles, alors que le logicisme d’un côté, le bergsonisme de l’autre, semblaient transformer totalement la philosophie. Il fournit également un nouvel éclairage sur le mouvement des idées à la veille de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, alors que la Société française de philosophie était créée et qu’étaient organisés les premiers Congrès internationaux rassemblant des savants par-delà les frontières.

Abstract

L’Esthétique musicale classique et romantique (1988), l’ultime ouvrage de Carl Dahlhaus, est une présentation de la réflexion musicale entre l’« époque-seuil » (Kosellek) située autour de 1770 et les décennies tardives du XIXe siècle, qui marquent le début de la modernité. Même s’il traite essentiellement de l’Allemagne, cet ouvrage est universel, dans la mesure où l’esthétique musicale allemande, en particulier durant la décennie décisive ouverte par la Critique de la faculté de juger de Kant (1790) et close par les Fantaisies sur l’art de Ludwig Tieck (1799), a été à la pointe de l’évolution européenne. Le romantisme fut un phénomène d’esthétique musicale avant de devenir un phénomène musical ; il s’affirma comme mode d’écoute avant de pénétrer les styles et les formes de la composition. Parmi les faits les plus curieux de l’époque sur laquelle le livre est centré, figure la simultanéité des esthétiques musicales classique et romantique. Néanmoins, l’esthétique musicale classique demeurait vers 1800 rudimentaire, parce qu’il n’y avait pas de liaison efficace entre Vienne, le lieu du classicisme musical, et le foyer essentiel de développement de la réflexion sur la musique, le centre et le nord de l’Allemagne. À certains égards, le grand critique musical autrichien Eduard Hanslick (†1904), qui a été injustement traité de formaliste, est l’esthéticien qui a réussi à donner une formulation légitime de l’esprit de la musique classique. C’est d’elle que purent partir plus tard, bien que sans le dire, August Halm et Heinrich Schenker.
