Survol de l’anthropologie germanique

Qu’est-ce que la nature humaine ? C’est peut-être bien la plus importante question philosophique, parce que la philosophie elle-même est singulièrement humaine, et que les « problèmes » philosophiques se présentent seulement aux êtres humains. Tous les grands philosophes ont des réponses explicites ou implicites à cette question.  Read more …

F. W. J. Schelling & Indo-European Triparition

4,492 words

Friedrich Schelling, 1775–1854

Friedrich Schelling, 1775–1854

Part 6 of 6
