Download Sobre la paz perpetua by Immanuel Kant PDF

By Immanuel Kant

Sobre l. a. paz perpetua es una obra política escrita por Immanuel Kant en 1795. Como se intuye por el título (también traducible por «Para l. a. paz perpetua»), el objetivo de este tratado es encontrar una estructura mundial y una perspectiva de gobierno para cada uno de los estados en specific que favorezca l. a. paz. El proyecto kantiano es un proyecto jurídico y no ético: Kant no espera que los hombres puedan volverse más buenos, sino que cree posible construir un orden jurídico tal, que coloque l. a. guerra como algo ilegal, como ocurre dentro de los estados federales. l. a. obra se compone de 6 artículos preliminares y three artículos definitivos y 2 suplementos alrededor de los cuales se desarrolla l. a. reflexión. El título de l. a. obra viene de l. a. obra del Abad de Saint Pierre quien escribió un ensayo sobre el proyecto de una confederación europea llamado "La paz perpetua", que fue sintetizado y comentado por el filósofo político Jean Jacques Rousseau. Si bien no ha sido probado que Kant leyera ese texto de manera directa, sí se sabe que su novela favorita fue "Emilio, o de l. a. educación" de J. J. Rousseau. En el libro V de dicha obra, Rousseau cita los comentarios del Abad de St. Pierre y resume su propuesta de manera sucinta. l. a. misma estructura del Abad y el mismo fin de lograr los angeles paz en una Europa unida son los motivos que impulsan a Kant. Otra historia menos possible es que el título es una ironía de Kant y que lo tomó de un dibujo que un hostelero había puesto en su casa: period los angeles imagen de un cementerio y abajo l. a. frase «paz perpetua». los angeles estructura de obra puede ser entendida también como ironía literaria: tiene los angeles forma de un tratado de paz, con artículos preliminares, definitivos y hasta una cláusula secreta.

Download Premières leçons sur Crépuscule des idoles de Nietzsche by Roche Bruno PDF

By Roche Bruno

« Le livre que je prends l. a. liberté de mettre entre vos mains est peut-être le livre le plus étonnant qui ait jamais été écrit - et, en considération de ce qu'il prépare, c'est presque un fragment de destin ». Les mots par lesquels Nietzsche présente à Taine son Crépuscule des Idoles signale le double dessein qu'il y poursuit : rassembler, d'une half, les grands thèmes de son œuvre (la décadence, le génie, los angeles critique de l. a. métaphysique… ) dans un texte incisif et synthétique, annoncer d'autre half une aube nouvelle dont le crépuscule serait los angeles préfiguration. L'étude de Bruno Roche, professeur en classe préparatoire, permet ainsi au lecteur d'appréhender les principaux thèmes de los angeles pensée de Nietzsche et d'en mesurer l'actualité : de quels avenirs se veut-il le prophète ?
