Download Le sorgenti del male (Italian Edition) by Bauman Zygmunt,Mazzeo Riccardo PDF

By Bauman Zygmunt,Mazzeo Riccardo

Che cos’è il male oggi? In che modo si può dire che le sue manifestazioni, le sue spinte, le sue modalità di aggredire il tessuto del mondo e delle persone che lo abitano si siano modificate?Zygmunt Bauman, uno dei più grandi pensatori viventi, già nel 1989, con Modernità e olocausto, aveva riletto le atrocità del Terzo Reich sovvertendo l’opinione comune che si fosse trattato un «incidente» della Storia e dimostrando che invece l. a. «società dei giardinieri» della modernità aveva raggiunto con l’olocausto il suo risultato più esemplare. In questo libro Bauman compie un ulteriore decisivo passo avanti nell’identificazione del «male» ai giorni nostri. E lo fa con una ricognizione delle tesi fallaci che si erano affermate nel Novecento (dalla «personalità autoritaria» di Adorno alla «banalità del male» di Hannah Arendt) consistent with mostrare poi, in un corpo a corpo con le opere di Jonathan Littell e di Günther Anders, che los angeles presa di distanza dagli esiti dei nostri atti distruttivi (resa non solo possibile, ma obbligata, dalle mirabilia tecnologiche e dalla costrizione «diversamente morale» a non sprecare armi l. a. cui produzione ha richiesto quantità esorbitanti di denaro) contribuisce a erodere l. a. nostra sensibilità già gravemente indebolita e oggi prossima alla cancellazione.

Download Essayistik als Selbsttechnik: Wahrheitspraxis im Zeitalter by Nina Hahne PDF

By Nina Hahne

Im Zeitalter der Aufklärung etabliert sich eine eigenständige deutschsprachige Essayistik. Ihre gesellschaftliche Funktion blieb in der Forschung bislang unberücksichtigt. Diese Studie kann erstmals zeigen, dass die Essayistik der Aufklärung als textbasierte Selbsttechnik angelegt ist.

Doch wo wird über die Aufgaben essayistischen Schreibens debattiert, und welche Subjektformen bildet der Essay im 18. Jahrhundert aus? Um diese Fragen zu beantworten, weist die Studie anhand exemplarischer Textanalysen nach, wie es der Essay dem Einzelnen ermöglicht, gezielt kollektive oder individuelle Idealvorstellungen einzuüben. Dabei berücksichtigt sie sowohl Konzeptionen des Essays durch Essayisten selbst als auch den starken Einfluss der französischen Essay-Tradition nach dem Vorbild Michel de Montaignes und der englischen culture nach dem Vorbild Francis Bacons. Ausgehend von einer Beschreibung des „essayistischen Ichs“, das sich jeweils in den Texten konstituiert, kann sie den Essay der Aufklärung als eine komplexe Wahrheitspraxis beschreiben, deren Reflexionsformen bis in die Gegenwart fortwirken. Damit leistet die Studie einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Gattungsgeschichte des Essays und zur Geschichte der Subjektformen der Aufklärung.
