Aristotle by Otfried Höffe( )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Otfried Hoffe provides a comprehensive introduction to the life and work of Aristotle, covering well-known Aristotelian topics such as ethics, politics, and metaphysics as well as the less familiar, such as biology, psychology, and rhetoric. Hoffe also compares Aristotle to other major figures in the history of European (especially German) philosophy, making connections to Kant and Hegel that are particularly insightful. A picture of Aristotle emerges as a philosopher who is much more modern than previously thought, one whose writings are still relevant today and continue to make valuable contributions to many contemporary philosophical debates."--Jacket
Thomas Hobbes by Otfried Höffe( )

30 editions published between 1981 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known for his contributions to political philosophy, Thomas Hobbes set out to develop a coherent philosophical system extending from logic and natural philosophy to civil and religious philosophy. In this introduction to Hobbes's thought, Otfried Höffe begins by providing an overview of the entire scope of his work, making clear its systematic character through analysis of his natural philosophy, his individual and social anthropology, and his political thought. He then offers an innovative examination of religious and ecclesiastical questions, touching not only on the political implications of religion so important to Hobbes, but also on his attempt to reconstruct Christianity in terms of a materialistic philosophy. He also explores Hobbes's continuous critique of Aristotle and Aristotelian Scholastics, in which Höffe argues that Hobbes and Aristotle have much more in common philosophically than is normally supposed - and certainly more than Hobbes himself acknowledged. Finally, Höffe sketches the influence Hobbes had and continues to have on the development of legal and political philosophy. -- from back cover

Aristotle's "Nicomachean ethics" by Otfried Höffe( )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anyone interested in theories of moral or human practice will find in Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics one of the few basic models relevant through to today. At the centre of his analysis, both sober and cautious, are such concepts as happiness, virtue, choice, prudence, incontinence, pleasure and friendship. Aristotle's arguments are by no means of merely historical interest, but continue to exert a key influence on present-day ethical debate. The thirteen contributions in this volume present the foundations of Aristotle's investigation, along with the modern background of its reception
Kant's moral and legal philosophy by Karl Ameriks( )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It also examines the relation of Kant's philosophy to politics. Collectively, the essays in this volume provide English readers with a direct view of how leading German philosophers are now regarding Kant's revolutionary practical philosophy, one of the outstanding achievements of German thought

Ciceros Staatsphilosophie ein kooperativer Kommentar zu "De re publica" und "De legibus" by Otfried Höffe( )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in German and English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marcus Tullius Cicero, der bedeutendste Redner, Staatsmann und Philosoph Roms, pragt mit seinen beiden politischen Hauptwerken De re publica und De legibus fur Jahrhunderte das abendlandische Rechts- und Staatsdenken. Deren charakteristische Uberhohung von griechischer Philosophie durch romische Staatsklugheit erfahrt hier von Fachleuten zum ersten Mal eine kooperative Kommentierung, die sowohl Fachleute als auch interessierte Laien anspricht. In De re publica lasst sich Cicero auf die drei Aufgaben einer Theorie des vorbildlichen Gemeinwesens ein. Jeweils zwei Bucher befassen sich mit der idealen Staatsverfassung (I-II), mit deren rechtlicher und sittlicher Grundlage (III-IV) und mit dem idealen Staatsmann (V-VI). Jedem dieser drei Gesprachspaare schickt Cicero eine personliche Vorrede (Proominium) voraus. In De legibus erganzt er diese Uberlegungen um Erorterungen zum Naturrecht, um eine detaillierte Darstellung des geltenden Sakralrechts und des Staats- und Verfassungsrechts von Rom, die dessen Einmaligkeit in politischer Stabilitat und Optimalitat belegen soll. Der kooperative Kommentar kann sowohl in Ciceros politisches Denken einfuhren als auch dessen Lekture begleiten

Democracy in an age of globalisation by Otfried Höffe( )

25 editions published in 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Democracy in an Age of Globalisation, Otfried Höffe develops a comprehensive analysis of the demands, which the process of globalization exerts on the political organisations of humanity. The author starts from a diagnosis of the process of globalisation and frees its concept from its economistic narrowing: Globalisation is a comprehensive process which puts new strains on the economies and political systems of the world, the cultural and social structures of peoples. The scope of its challenges demands solutions, which transcend the powers of the classical nation-state. The question central to the book can be formulated as follows: "How can the social, moral and legal achievements of the nation-state be retained while its structure is reshaped to satisfy the requirements of a globalised world?" "Against grass-roots communitarianism as well as against highbrow globalism, the author chooses the realisation of a multilevel world republic that plays the role of an instance of negotiation and settlement. He respects cultural particularities and national characters, while observing at the same time the commandments of the world social contract that governs the relations between the states and their citizens." Ludger Heidebrink, Die Zeit "'Democracy ... ' is a cautious precision-work. It is a bold, though carefully arguing book that does not deal with less than the legitimacy and the main characteristics of a future world republic. ... Höffe's extraordinary book represents a significant contribution to the most important questions asked by the beginning of the new century that is characterised by 'globalisation'." Georg Kohler, NZZ

Main description: Platons "Politeia" gehört zu den bedeutendsten und wirkungsreichsten Texten der Philosophigeschichte. Unter der Leitfrage nach der Gerechtigkeit weist Platon traditionelle Auffassungen zurück und leistet eine Sophistenkritik; er entwickelt im Anschluß dann seine -- Lehre von den drei Seelenteilen und die Lehre von den vier Kardinaltugenden. -- Er skizziert eine Erziehungstheorie, eine Staatsphilosophie mit der Lehre von der Philosophenherrschaft, eine Erkenntnistheorie und die Ideenlehre. Vor allem aber enthält die "Politeia" Platons bekannteste Gleichnisse: von der Sonne, der Linie und der Höhle. -- In Form eines kooperativen Kommentars führen anerkannte Platon-Interpreten, der Gliederung des Werkes folgend, in die Hauptthemen der "Politeia" und die wichtigsten Forschungsprobleme ein
Kant's Critique of pure reason : the foundation of modern philosophy by Otfried Höffe( )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason" is so outstanding among modern philosophical works, that it can be termed "the" foundation of modern philosophy. Schopenhauer termed it "the most important book ever to have been written in Europe." Otfried Hoffe guides the reader through the "Critique" one step at a time, expounding Kant's thoughts, submitting them to an interpretation and drawing a summary conclusion, placing the work and its topics within the context of its modern successors. A "critical" interpretation of Kant's text reveals that he had something to say on many discussions that are said to have originated after his death. Reducing his argumentation to its central tenets, it can be made stronger and applicable to current problems. Kant's eventual concern, however, even when writing theoretical philosophy, lay with the practical. Elaborating this concern and its connection to Kant's theoretical philosophy is a prime tenet of this book."--Résumé de l'éditeur
