Nihilistisches Geschichtsdenken: Nietzsches perspektivische by Marcus Andreas Born

By Marcus Andreas Born

Mit dem proklamierten "Tod Gottes" stellt Friedrich Nietzsche auch das Geschichtsdenken vor große Herausforderungen. Seine Wendung gegen vermeintlich absolute Standpunkte bedeutet jedoch keinesfalls einen Verzicht darauf, über Vergangenes zu urteilen.
Stattdessen verlangt er, in der Geschichtserkenntnis die eigenen (nihilistischen) Grundlagen zu reflektieren. Gerade Elemente wie der menschliche Leib und das Machtstreben, die Nietzsche in der philosophischen culture vernachlässigt sieht, können zum positiven Bestandteil einer genealogischen Geschichtserkenntnis werden. Dadurch, dass der Erkennende eingesteht, dass sein eigener Standpunkt perspektivisch ist, kann der Geschichte in einem endlichen Horizont ein starkes Gewicht gegeben werden. Hierbei soll die Denkfigur einer auf Erkenntnis ausgerichteten Feindesliebe zeigen, dass der Interpret seine Thesen weder absolut setzen noch relativieren muss. Die Frage nach blinden Flecken, die Nietzsches Denken insbesondere im Umgang mit seinen Idealgegnern Sokrates und Jesus prägen, folgt somit seiner Aufforderung, auch seine Gedanken auf ihre Genesis hin zu untersuchen.

Le problème de l'essence de l'homme chez Spinoza by Julien Busse

By Julien Busse

Ni philosophe du sujet ni philosophe du moi, Spinoza, on le sait, n'accorde pas à l'homme le statut de substance, mais de mode. Cette désubstantialisation s'accompagne d'une apparente indifférence à l'égard du problème classique de l. a. différence spécifique de l'homme par rapport à l'animal. Dès lors on peut s'interroger sur l'étrange silence de l'Éthique au sujet d'une définition précise de l'essence humaine. À rebours des commentateurs qui ont essayé de reconstituer cette définition à partir des symptoms de l'auteur, Julien Busse cherche de manière originale à comprendre les raisons pour lesquelles Spinoza n'a pas jugé bon d'en fournir une. Plutôt que l. a. présence, il pense l'absence de définition de l'essence humaine pour montrer qu'elle ne tient pas à une carence, mais qu'elle obéit à une impossibilité. C'est sur los angeles nécessité de l'absence d'une telle définition que Julien Busse invite à se pencher pour en analyser aussi bien les explanations que les effets.
