Dimensions of goodness by Vittorio Hösle( )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Development, and the American legal scholars Steven D. Smith and Mary Ellen O'Connell examine the place of religion in the American constitution and the power of international law in limiting violence respectively. Finally, the last section consists of a chapter by the well-known Chinese intellectual Wang Hui on Lu Xun's struggle to find a middle way between respect of one's own tradition and the demands of globalization. There is probably no other volume in which so many different disciplines come together to try to find a convergence of perspectives on basic moral issues. The book will be invaluable to those who believe that goodness is the focal point of most academic disciplines and that academia can find a stronger point of unity in a common reflection on what goodness in various areas means

Morals and politics by Vittorio Hösle( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this ambitious work Hosle attempts no less than an outline of a political ethics for the twenty-first century. He raises the question of the relationship between morals and politics and proposes a relatively complex answer to it. This answer involves a search for a synthesis between the classical European conviction that political philosophy must be based on ethics and the more modern notion that ethical arguments themselves have a political function. Hosle's goal is to create a concrete political ethics for the situation in which humanity finds itself today."--Jacket

Kritik der verstehenden Vernunft : eine Grundlegung der Geisteswissenschaften by Vittorio Hösle( )

6 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Beliebigkeit, die für die Geisteswissenschaften zu Anfang des 21. Jahrhunderts kennzeichnend ist, hat viele Ursachen. Eine zentrale ist das Fehlen von Klarheit hinsichtlich grundlegender Begriffe, Methoden und Aufgaben dieser Wissenschaften. Die Beseitigung dieses Mankos unternimmt Vittorio Hösle mit seinem neuen großen Buch. Insbesondere geht es ihm darum, die Möglichkeit intersubjektiv gültigen Verstehens aufzuzeigen. Denn das Bestreiten dieser Möglichkeit, wie es postmodern gang und gäbe geworden ist, gefährdet die Geisteswissenschaften bis ins Fundament. Hösles Ausführungen setzen mit der Erkenntnis ein, dass zwischen dem Verstehen von Aussagen in der eigenen Muttersprache und den akrobatischen Interpretationsleistungen, die etwa der Entzifferer einer verschollenen Schrift vollbringt, zwischen Lebenswelt und Geisteswissenschaft also, eine erstaunliche Kontinuität waltet. Dabei geht er davon aus, dass die Hermeneutik eine Unterdisziplin der Erkenntnistheorie und daher normativ ausgerichtet ist – es geht in ihr darum, richtiges Verstehen von Missverstehen zu unterscheiden
Die Vollendung der Tragödie im Spätwerk des Sophokles : ästhetisch-historische Bemerkungen zur Struktur der attischen Tragödie by Vittorio Hösle( Book )

21 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in German and Italian and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eric Rohmer : filmmaker and philosopher by Vittorio Hösle( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rohmer is one of the most popular French directors of the second half of the 20th century. One of the members of the famous Nouvelle Vague that reconstituted French cinema based on the theoretical principles articulated in the Cahiers du Cinema, he was fired when as a conservative Catholic he opposed its turn toward politicization. Like some of his colleagues, Rohmer is extremely interested in both the history and the philosophy of film. Brother of the noted French philosopher Rene Scherer, he begins his career as a film critic. In his films, deep moral conflicts as well as the search for one's own identity emerge from the intricacies of seemingly superficial everyday life interactions, particularly between a man and a woman. Hosle's book puts Rohmer in the context of a long French tradition of reflected eroticism, with Marivaux, Musset, Stendhal, and Jean Renoir as crucial figures, and shows how Rohmer both recognizes the inner logic of eroticism and subjects it to moral demands that he inherits from his Catholic background. For Rohmer, the tension between the two can usually only be solved by some unexpected event that can be interpreted as an equivalent of grace
