The questions of life : an invitation to philosophy by Fernando Savater( Book )

56 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, by one of Spain's most eminent philosophers, provides a lively and very accessible introduction to philosophy. Written for those who have no prior knowledge of the field, it reveals how the central problems of philosophy remain highly relevant to everyday contemporary life. Savater addresses the questions that we ourselves must face: what is this 'I' that I take for granted? What does it mean for me to be in the world? In what sense am I free? And how does the idea of death affect my life? In his discussion of concepts such as beauty, time and language, Savater frequently refers to earlier philosophers, yet he does so in a way that brings their ideas to life and shows their enduring relevance. Using quotations from the ancient Greeks through to more recent philosophers such as Wittgenstein and Sartre, Savater illustrates his own arguments, while also sketching a basic history of philosophical ideas. The Questions of Life has already been translated into ten languages and has enjoyed enormous success, selling over 70 000 copies in Spain alone. It is an elegant and straightforward book that abstains from specialized terminology. It constitutes an ideal introductory text for those studying philosophy at A-Level or university, and will also be of great interest to the general reader. -- Back cover

Professeur de philosophie, l'auteur propose une réflexion sur la fameuse crise de l'enseignement et pose les indispensables questions que tant de parents et d'enseignants ne se posent pourtant plus : apprendre, qu'est-ce que c'est? Y a-t-il des choses que l'on ne peut enseigner? Autrement dit : quel est le but de l'enseignement et quels doivent être ses contenus?

El valor de elegir by Fernando Savater( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in Spanish and French and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preguntarse por la libertad es hacerlo a la razón y al corazón de nuestra vida. Reconocer el valor de ser, sentirse y vivir libre es reconocerse como humano y por ello aceptar el compromiso feliz e inexcusable del esfuerzo continuado. Una tarea para toda la vida. Es el tema de este libro. Para empezar, ingenuamente, puede plantearse así: ¿En qué consiste la libertad? ¿Existe realmente la libertad? ¿Es algo que tengo antes de saberlo, algo que sólo adquiero al saber que lo tengo o algo que para tenerlo debo renunciar a saber con precisión qué es? ¿Soy capaz de libertad o soy libertad y por ello capaz de ser humano? Y tantas, tantas, demasiadas preguntas. En la primera parte se intenta una antropología a partir de la libertad, es decir, considerando la libertad como diferencia específica del género humano. Cuestiones sobre la elección, lo voluntario e involuntario, la intención o el azar ayudarán a comprender qué es. En la segunda parte se ofrecen algo así como unos ejercicios de libertad . Es una incitación a continuar pensando y repensando
Diccionario filosófico by Fernando Savater( Book )

37 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in Spanish and Italian and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Da democrazia a uguaglianza, da seduzione a stupidità, da Casanova a Rousseau, questo è un 'dizionario d'autore' di grande interesse e leggibilità. Accanto a temi tradizionali della filosofia come la natura, la morte, la giustizia, l'essere, ce ne sono altri che di rado figurano nei dizionari più comuni: il denaro, la malattia, i sogni, l'erotismo. Savater, benché prenda parte a svariate polemiche contemporanee, preferisce occuparsi dei problemi degli uomini piuttosto che delle dispute dei filosofi

Sobre vivir by Fernando Savater( Book )

27 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in Spanish and French and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resumen: Este conjunto de ensayos breves y articulos va precedido de una cita en la que Jierkegaard afirma : "como todo devenir, la vida es polemica." Voluntaria o involuntariamente, casi todo lo que se contiene en este libro ha nacido bajo el signo de la polemica. La selección de de temas no puede ser mas varia : de la novela policiaca al antimilitarismo, del vino a las películas de vaqueros, del paisaje de los cuentos infantiles a la guerra de las Malvinas o los relatos de espada y brujeria. Se habla de cosas de ayer mismo y de cosas sin tiempo, de lo que vendra y de lo perdido o sonado. Pero si cada parrafo nace de una confrontación con otras opiniones y de la critica ironica o de ciertas ideas vigentes, algunas mayoritarias y otras marginales. El conjunto es algo asi como el diario cultural de un intelectual espanol de hoy, que se pretende a la vez lucido e ingenuo, enfrentado cotidianamente al reto de la literatura, el cine. la política a la historia. en resumen, al desafio de la propia vida

Los invitados de la princesa by Fernando Savater( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La presidenta de Santa Clara, conocida popularmente como la Princesa, quiere convertir su pequeña república isleña en referencia cultural del mundo. Para ello convoca a escritores y artistas para celebrar un magno Festín de la Cultura. Sin embargo, un inoportuno volcán interfiere en sus planes y su nube de cenizas hace imposible que la anfitriona e invitados se reúnan en la isla. La joven periodista Xabi Mendia, enviado especial de Mundo Vasco, levanta acta de la paradójica situación y escucha las historias que cuentan unos y otros mientras todos esperan salir de allí: relatos de pasiones y terrores, intrigantes y fantásticos, en los que no faltan las perplejidades de la cultura contemporánea y hasta aparece la sombra de un vampiro-- "--Jacket
Etica per un figlio by Fernando Savater( Book )

37 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in Italian and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Non è vero che un'etica laica, senza assoluti e senza miti, non può fornire modelli educativi efficaci. Savater lo dimostra: la moralità è autonomia, capacità di non sottomettersi, amore di sé nel senso migliore del termine. Un libro intenso ma anche amichevole, che genitori e maestri dovrebbero leggere e commentare insieme ai loro figli, discepoli, amici adolescenti." (Gianni Vattimo)
