ber die Grundlage der Moral

Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
Publisher: Meiner Verlag
ISBN: 9783787327836
Release Date: 2016-03-01
Genre: Philosophy

Schopenhauer (1788–1860) plädiert in seiner Schrift "Über die Grundlagen der Moral" für einen deskriptiven und nicht für einen präskriptiven moralphilosophischen Ansatz. Trotz seiner Wertschätzung für Kant unterzieht er dessen Ethik einer eingehenden Kritik und ersetzt deren oberstes Prinzip, den kategorischen Imperativ, durch das Gefühl des Mitleids. In seiner 1839 bei der Dänischen Societät der Wissenschaften eingereichten und 1841 erstmals in dem Band "Die beiden Grundprobleme der Ethik" veröffentlichten Preisschrift über die Grundlage der Moral legt Schopenhauer eine Reihe bemerkenswerter Ergänzungen zu seiner Ethik bzw. Metaphysik der Sitten vor. In keinem anderen seiner Werke setzt er sich so ausführlich mit Kants Ethik auseinander, die er einerseits als bedeutende Leistung würdigt, andererseits aber auch einer gründlichen und - in vielen Punkten - überzeugenden Kritik unterwirft. Ein zentraler Einwand lautet, dass der kategorische Imperativ letzten Endes einem kalkulierten Egoismus entspringe. Damit wäre er kein formales, sondern ein materiales Prinzip, und er würde nicht kategorisch, sondern allenfalls hypothetisch gelten. Darüber hinaus weist Schopenhauer die "imperative Form" der Kantischen Ethik als unangemessen zurück. Nach seiner Auffassung besteht die Aufgabe der Ethik keineswegs darin, Vorschriften aufzustellen, nach denen sich die Menschen zu richten hätten, sondern lediglich darin, deren Verhalten zu beschreiben und verständlich zu machen. Was seine eigene Konzeption der Ethik anbelangt, so läuft sie darauf hinaus, daß das Mitleid die Grundlage der Moral bildet. Schopenhauer charakterisiert es als ein Gefühl, in dem einem Menschen das Leiden des Anderen ebenso unmittelbar zugänglich ist wie das eigene und das ihn dazu motiviert, den Anderen zum letzten Zweck des Handelns zu machen. Vor diesem Hintergrund entwickelt Schopenhauer seine eigene Tugendlehre, in deren Mittelpunkt die Gerechtigkeit und die Menschenliebe stehen.

L ngengrad

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Längengrad erzählt die Geschichte des unbekannten schottischen Uhrmachers John Harrison, dem es im 18. Jahrhundert gelang, die Schiffahrt durch die Lösung des Längengrad-Problems auf neuen Kurs zu bringen. Bislang hatten sich die Seefahrer bei ihrer Navigation am Verlauf der Breitengrade orientiert. Eine Methode mit fatalen Folgen: Seefahrer und Fracht wurden leichte Beute von Seeräubern, die den Handelsschiffen auf den Breitengraden auflauerten. Zudem irrten die Schiffe fast orientierungslos auf den Weltmeeren umher und erreichten ihre Zielorte wenn überhaupt — eher zufällig. Die ohnehin langen Schiffahrten dauerten noch länger. Der gefürchtete Skorbut raffte nicht selten die Mannschaft dahin. Mit einem Wort: Handelsschiffahrt war ein Unternehmen auf Leben und Tod. Längengrad rekonstruiert die Geschichte einer wissenschaftlichen Gralssuche, eines Davidskampfes gegen die großen Astronomen jener Zeit. Galileo Galilei, Sir Isaac Newton und Edmond Halley suchten die Lösung des damals schwierigsten nautischen Problems in den Gestirnen. Anders John Harrison: 40 Jahre lang arbeitete er besessen an seiner Idee eines perfekten Chronometers. Trotz der Intrigen seiner Rivalen setzte sich Harrisons geniale Erfindung letztendlich durch. Schon der berühmte Seefahrer James Cook ließ sich auf seinen Expeditionen von Harrisons Uhr leiten und nannte sie seinen »zuverlässigsten Freund« und »nie versagenden Führer«.

Die Akkumulation des Kapitals Gesamtausgabe in 3 B nden

Genre: Political Science

Die Akkumulation des Kapitals ist eine ökonomische Schrift von Rosa Luxemburg aus dem Jahre 1913. Sie war ein entscheidender Beitrag zur Imperialismusdebatte im Vorfeld des Ersten Weltkrieges. Rosa Luxemburgs Werk erschien erstmals 1913 im sozialdemokratischen Vorwärts-Verlag und erfuhr seitdem zahlreiche Neuauflagen. Luxemburg bezieht sich theoretisch auf K. Marx und seine Theorie der "ursprünglichen Akkumulation", welche dieser im ersten Band des "Kapital" entwickelte. Luxemburg untersucht vor allem im dritten Abschnitt der "Akkumulation des Kapitals" die Prozesse, in denen vorkapitalistische Wirtschafts- und Gesellschaftsformen in den kapitalistischen Wirtschaftskreislauf integriert werden. In der zeitgenössischen Debatte lieferte Luxemburg damit eine ökonomische Argumentation zur Kritik des Kolonialismus und den sich aus Kolonialkonflikten ergebenden außenpolitischen Krisen wie etwa der Marokkokrise sowie der Aufrüstung im Europa der Vorkriegszeit. Luxemburgs Argumentation basierte auch auf Hilferdings 1907 erschienener Schrift "Das Finanzkapital", Lenin griff ihre Argumentation in seiner 1916 erschienenen Schrift "Der Imperialismus als höchstes Stadium des Kapitalismus" vor dem Hintergrund des Weltkrieges neu auf. Rosa Luxemburg (1871-1919) war eine einflussreiche Vertreterin der europäischen Arbeiterbewegung, des Marxismus, Antimilitarismus und "proletarischen Internationalismus".
