The legitimacy of the modern age by Hans Blumenberg( )

100 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bajo el planteamiento más amplio en torno a la legitimidad las partes de este libro analizan todo el complejo de temas relacionados con la constitución de la Edad Moderna, apoyándose en una crítica de ese concepto fundamental que es la secularización, mediante el cual la autocomprensión de la modernidad quería tanto liberarse como también cerciorarse de sus vinculaciones retrógradas: ¿cuáles son las condiciones necesarias para que se produzca el desprendimiento de una época respecto a la realidad que la ha precedido? En este caso, en la relación entre la Edad Media y la Edad Moderna, la pregunta sería sobre el proceso de autoafirmación del hombre frente al absolutismo teológico (las dos primeras partes, sobre la Secularización y la Autoafirmación humana). Proceso en el que se da una visión detallada del cambio de valoración que va experimentando la curiosidad en el plano teorético y científico. El marco para ello es extraordinariamente amplio, yendo desde la Antigüedad hasta el psicoanálisis, desde Sócrates hasta Feuerbach y Freud (éste sería el tema de la tercera parte, El proceso de la curiosidad teórica). La última parte del libro intentaría ahondar de nuevo en la lógica del cambio de época desde una doble perspectiva: el punto de vista sobre el mundo y el hombre de Nicolás de Cusa y de Giordano Bruno, la preocupación por lo que estaba en trance de desaparición y el triunfo de lo que ya despuntaba despliegan sus diferencias fundamentales sobre un fondo de cuestiones metafísicas que siguen siendo comunes (Aspectos de un umbral de épocas). El conjunto de la obra trataría de captar la Edad Moderna que se estaba formando a partir de los impulsos procedentes del hundimiento de la Edad Media y que desembocaron en una concepción totalmente contrapuesta a sus expectativas. Un tema obligado de la obra es el de la relación entre la razón y la historia. Después de que la Ilustración europea se haya visto repetidamente sorprendida y perpleja por el fracaso de sus esfuerzos, presuntamente definitivos, en vez de refugiarse en romanticismos, de tono apacible o bronco, tendría que emprender el análisis de sus propios presupuestos, los manifiestos y los ocultos, es decir, hacer una verdadera ilustración sobre la Ilustración. Desde Kant sabemos muy bien –volviéndolo a olvidar cada vez– que la crítica de la razón no sólo es y será siempre una crítica mediante la razón, sino una crítica ejercida sobre la propia razón
Work on myth by Hans Blumenberg( )

Shipwreck with spectator : paradigm of a metaphor for existence by Hans Blumenberg( )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 1,632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through Blumenberg's seemingly inexhaustible knowledge of letters, from ancient texts through nineteenth-century reminiscences and modern speeches, we see layer upon layer revealed in the meanings humans have given to these metaphors; and in this way we begin to understand what metaphors can do that more straightforward modes of expression cannot. This edition of Shipwreck with Spectator also includes "Prospect for a Theory of Nonconceptuality," an essay that recounts the evolution of Blumenberg's ideas about metaphorology in the years following his early manifesto "Paradigms for a Metaphorology."
Paradigms for a metaphorology by Hans Blumenberg( )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What role do metaphors play in philosophical language? Are they impediments to clear thinking and clear expression, rhetorical flourishes that may well help to make philosophy more accessible to a lay audience, but that ought ideally to be eradicated in the interests of terminological exactness? Or can the images used by philosophers tell us more about the hopes and cares, attitudes and indifferences that regulate an epoch than their carefully elaborated systems of thought?
The genesis of the Copernican world by Hans Blumenberg( Book )

66 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major work by the German philosopher Hans Blumenberg is a monumental rethinking of the significance of the Copernican revolution for our understanding of modernity. It provides an important corrective to the view of science as an autonomous enterprise and presents a new account of the history of interpretations of the significance of the heavens for man

Care crosses the river by Hans Blumenberg( Book )

33 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of short meditations on various topics, Hans Blumenberg eschews academic ponderousness and writes in a genre evocative of Montaigne's Essais, Walter Benjamin's Denkbilder, or Adorno's Minima Moralia. Drawing upon an intellectual tradition that ranges from Aesop to Wittgenstein and from medieval theology to astrophysics, he works as a detective of ideas scouring the periphery of intellectual and philosophical history for clues--metaphors, gestures, anecdotes--essential to grasping human finitude. Images of shipwrecks, attempts at ordering the world, and questions of foundations are traced through the work of Goethe, Schopenhauer, Simmel, Husserl, Thomas Mann, and others. The book's reflections culminate in a rereading of the fable "Care Crosses the River" that lies at the center of Heidegger's analysis of Dasein in which the fable's elided Gnostic center is recovered: Care creates the human in its own image, as a reflection of its narcissism. - At stake throughout are two inextricable elements of Blumenberg's thought: a theory of nonconceptuality as essential to philosophizing and an exploration of culture understood as humanity's unceasing attempts to relieve itself of the weight of the absolutism of reality

Beschreibung des Menschen by Hans Blumenberg( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in German and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hans Blumenbergs Anthropologie ist eine philosophische Entdeckung ersten Ranges. Sie setzt ein mit einer einfachen, aber überaus folgenreichen These: Weil der Mensch als einziger unter den Primaten dauerhaft aufrecht steht und geht, kann er zwei Dinge besonders gut: sehen - und gesehen werden. Die Optimierung der visuellen Wahrnehmung geht einher mit dem Risiko erhöhter Visibilität. So exponiert zu sein, formt sein Weltverhältnis und macht ihn zum Virtuosen der Selbstinszenierung, aber auch der Selbstverstellung und Selbstverhüllung. Sichtbarkeit bedeutet deshalb auch: Der Mensch ist undurchsichtig - für andere wie für sich selbst. Blumenbergs überaus materialreiche Anthropologie hat ihren theoretischen roten Faden in dieser dezidiert phänomenologischen Ausrichtung
