Stuttgarter Privatvorlesungen 1810

Author: Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling
Publisher: Meiner Verlag
ISBN: 9783787328727
Release Date: 2016-04-05
Genre: Philosophy

Studienausgabe eines bislang unedierten Systementwurfs Schellings, die aufgrund der Ausrichtung des Textes auf ein nichtuniversitäres Publikum auch zur Einführung in das Denken Schellings dienen kann. Mit einer Nachschrift des Gastgebers Georgii und dem Briefwechsel zwischen ihm und dem Philosophen. Im Jahre 1810 hielt F. W. J. Schelling in Stuttgart vor einem kleinen Kreis hoher Staatsbeamter private Vorlesungen. Juristen, Ärzte und Literaten versammelten sich hier zum ›philosophischen Gespräch‹, um die Prinzipien des Schelling’schen Systems kennenzulernen und zu diskutieren. War Schelling Pantheist? Oder: Ließ sich die stufenweise Entfaltung der Natur mit dem Gang menschlicher Entwicklung in Pestalozzis Erziehungslehre zusammenbringen? Und: Wie stand es mit der Religion? – so fragte der prominente Veranstalter des Vorlesungszyklus, der württembergische Oberjustizrat E. F. von Georgii, in seinen Briefen an den Philosophen. In den »Stuttgarter Privatvorlesungen« legt Schelling einen klargegliederten Systementwurf vor, der aufgrund seiner Stringenz einen umfassenden und konzentrierten Überblick auf das breite Themenspektrum seines Denkens ermöglicht. Gott – Natur – Mensch bilden die metaphysischen Grundbegriffe des Systems, die hier mit Bezug auf Schellings Identitätsphilosophie (1801–1808) und zugleich über sie hinaus entfaltet werden. Nur ein Jahr nach der wirkungsmächtigen »Freiheitsschrift « (1809) und fast zeitgleich mit der Aufnahme der Arbeit an den »Weltaltern« (1811–1815) verfasst, nimmt der Text eine Schlüsselfunktion im Gesamtwerk des Philosophen ein, in dem sich 1810 der Übergang zu Schellings geschichtlicher Philosophie vorzeichnet. Der erst aus dem Nachlass von Schellings Sohn in den »Sämmtlichen Werken« herausgegebene Text wird hier zusammen mit der von Georgii angefertigten Nachschrift in einer Studienausgabe präsentiert und durch den Briefwechsel zwischen dem Philosophen und dem Juristen ergänzt.

Song of Increase

Genre: Technology & Engineering

The most joyful emanation produced by a colony of bees is known as the “song of increase”—declaring that the hive is flourishing and the bees are happy in its abundance. Song of Increase takes us inside the world of the honeybee to glean the wisdom of these fascinating creatures with whom humanity has shared a sacred bond for millennia. Within these pages is a bee-centric approach to living with honeybees, rather than advice for simply maximizing the products they provide. Jacqueline Freeman takes us beyond traditional beekeeping and offers a way to work in harmony with honeybees for both their good and ours. “Our way is one of kind observation,” she explains, “where we create supportive homes and fields for bees to live in, as well as tend the heartfelt relationships we form by being together.” Song of Increase focuses on hidden aspects of apiculture that lead us naturally to more sustainable practices. Freeman illuminates the unity consciousness that guides every action in the colony and how this profound awareness can influence the way we see both the natural world and ourselves. Each chapter presents a wealth of information about the life of bees, including Freeman’s personal insights and direct teachings received from the bees themselves.
