Das Erlebnis und die Dichtung : Lessing, Goethe, Novalis, Hölderlin by Wilhelm Dilthey( Book )

165 editions published between 1906 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sätzen eine ausführliche Analyse des N athan hinzugekommen. Und so mag neben dem farbenreichen Gemälde, das Erich Schmidt in seiner ausgezeichneten Lessingbiographie uns ge schenkt hat, diese Zeichnung eine bescheidene Stelle be haupten. Die allgemeineren Beziehungen, in welchen Lessing zum deutschen Geistesleben steht, werde ich an anderer Stelle behandeln, und dort werden auch einige Punkte von mehr systematischer Art wie die geistvolle Hypothese Spitzers über das Verhältnis Giordano Brunos zu Lessing sowie die histo rischen Zusammenhänge der Seelenwanderungslehre Leasings besprochen werden. Meine Darstellung der Seelen wanderungslehre gab damals Konstantin Rößler Anlaß, im Septemberheft des zwanzigsten Bandes der preußischen Jahrbücher eine von der meinigen abweichende Auffassung geltend zu machen, und auch von anderer Seite wurde versucht. die Widersprüche aufmklären, welche in Lessings Äußerungen zu liegen scheinen. Zwei Hypothesen Lessings liegen vor. Jede von ihnen soll gewisse Schwierigkeiten auflösen, die Lessing bei der Bildung seiner Weltanschauung aufstießen. Die eine Gruppe dieser Schwierigkeiten' scheint eine Wiederkehr des Menschen auf dieser Erde zu fordern. Soll die Vollkommenheit Gottes mit der Notwendigkeit der menschlichen Handlungen vereinigt werden, so muß diejenige Seele, die auf einer niederen Stufe der religiös moralischen Entwickelung zurückgeblieben ist, an den späteren Stufen dieser Entwickelung teilnelunen können. Diesen Forde rungen genügt die Wiederkehr der Seele auf unserer' Erde und in dem weiteren Ablauf unserer menschlichen Geschichte
The formation of the historical world in the human sciences by Wilhelm Dilthey( Book )

116 editions published between 1910 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides Dilthey's most mature and best formulation of his Critique of Historical Reason. It begins with three "Studies Toward the Foundation of the Human Sciences," in which Dilthey refashions Husserlian concepts to describe the basic structures of consciousness relevant to historical understanding. The volume next presents the major 1910 work The Formation of the Historical World in the Human Sciences. Here Dilthey considers the degree to which carriers of history--individuals, cultures, institutions, and communities--can be articulated as productive systems capable of generating value and meaning and of realizing purposes. Hegel's idea of objective spirit is reconceived in a more empirical form to designate the medium of commonality in which historical beings are immersed. Any universal claims about history need to be framed within the specific productive systems analyzed by the various human sciences. Dilthey's drafts for the Continuation of the Formation contain extensive discussions of the categories most important for our knowledge of historical life: meaning, value, purpose, time, and development. He also examines the contributions of autobiography to historical understanding and of biography to scientific history. The finest summary of Dilthey's views on hermeneutics can be found in "The Understanding of Other Persons and Their Manifestations of Life." Here, Dilthey differentiates understanding relative to three kinds of manifestations of life. After giving his analysis of elementary understanding, he examines the role of induction in higher understanding and interpretation, and the relevance of transposition and re-experiencing for grasping individuality."--Publisher description

Pattern & meaning in history : thoughts on history & society by Wilhelm Dilthey( Book )

26 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in English and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One may state Dilthey's significance in most general fashion by characterizing his work as the first thorough-going and sophisticated confrontation of history with positivism and natural science. Dilthey's sweep was universal: he strove to reduce to order the multifarious realms of knowledge, the conflicting traditions of cultural study, that he had embraced. Thus Dilthey laid out a program that no mortal - and certainly no one whose mind had been formed in the third quarter of the nineteenth century - could hope to bring to completion. Yet despite its inconclusiveness, Dilthey's work exerted enormous influence. The distinction he had drawn between natural and cultural science became standard for historians and, to a lesser extent, for social scientists also. After Dilthey historians no longer needed to apologize for the "unscientific" character of their discipline: they understood why its methods could never be quite the same as those of natural science. And the contemporary tradition of intellectual history grew naturally out of Dilthey's teaching."--H. Stuart Hughes

Selected writings by Wilhelm Dilthey( Book )

15 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dilthey is a figure of real importance in European philosophy and social theory. He exerted a significant influence on Husserl, Heidegger and Weber (among others) through his work on the nature of philosophy and the methodology and epistemology of human and social studies. He was also a distinguished and original historian of ideas and, indeed, many of his philosophical interests arose from the insights and practical difficulties he encountered as a historian. He produced a monumental biography of Schleiermacher, and a series of shorter, but no less striking studies of Hegel, Dickens, Shakespeare, Schiller and many others. --Publisher description
Poetry and experience by Wilhelm Dilthey( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1997 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the fifth volume in a six-volume translation of the major writings of Wilhelm Dilthey (1833-1911), a philosopher and historian of culture who has had a significant, and continuing, influence on twentieth-century Continental philosophy and in a broad range of scholarly disciplines. In addition to his landmark works on the theories of history and the human sciences, Dilthey made important contributions to hermeneutics and phenomenology, aesthetics, psychology, and the methodology of the social sciences. This volume presents Dilthey's principal writings on aesthetics and the philosophical understanding of poetry, as well as representative essays of literary criticism. The essay "The Imagination of the Poet" (also known as his Poetics) is his most sustained attempt to examine the philosophical bearings of literature in relation to psychological and historical theory. Also included are "The Three Epochs of Modern Aesthetics and its Present Task," "Fragments for a Poetics," and two final essays discussing Goethe and Hl̲derlin. The latter are drawn from Das Erlebnis und die Dichtung, a volume that was acclaimed on publication as a classic of literary criticism and that continues to be a model for the geistesgeschichtliche approach to literary history."--Publisher description

Descriptive psychology and historical understanding by Wilhelm Dilthey( Book )

11 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and German and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps no philosopher has so fully explored the nature and conditions of historical understanding as Wilhelm Dilthey. His work, conceived overall as a Critique of Historical Reason and developed through his well-known theory of the human studies, provides concepts and methods still fruitful for those concerned with analyzing the human condition. Despite the increasing recognition of Dilthey's contributions, relati vely few of his writings have as yet appeared in English translation. It is therefore both timely and useful to have available here two works drawn from different phases in the development of his philosophy. The "Ideas Concerning a Descriptive and Analytic Psychology" (1894), now translated into English for the first time, sets forth Dilthey's programma tic and methodological viewpoints through a descriptive psychology, while "The Understanding of Other Persons and Their Expressions of Life" (ca. 1910) is representative of his later hermeneutic approach to historical understanding. DESCRIPTIVE PSYCHOLOGY AND THE HUMAN STUDIES Dilthey presented the first mature statement of his theory of the human studies in volume one of his Einleitung in die Geisteswissenschaften (Introduction to the Human Studies), published in 1883. He argued there that for the proper study of man and history we must eschew the metaphysical speculation of the absolute idealists while at the same time avoiding the scientistic reduction of positivism
