Philosophie der Orientierung by Werner Stegmaier( )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2019 in German and English and held by 1,373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The very first thing one does in all situations of life is orient oneself. Decisions of orientation, which are mostly made under uncertainty and the pressure of time, largely determine subsequent decisions. But what is orientation? The problems of orientation are as old as humankind, the word is used everywhere, but the concept has never been thoroughly investigated. The philosopher Werner Stegmaier comprehensively clarifies for the first time the conditions and structures of orientation, including those of our sexual, economic, media, political, legal, scientific, artistic, religious, moral, and ethical orientations. He thereby establishes a new philosophical language and offers a philosophy for our time. "As if I unexpectedly slipped down into a deep vortex, I am swirled around in a way that I can neither put a foot down, nor swim to the surface. Nonetheless, I will work my way out ... " (René Descartes, Philosopher) "As often as my speculation seems to lead me too far from the paved road of common sense, I stand still and seek to orient myself. I look back at the point from which we started, and I seek to compare the two guideposts I have." (Moses Mendelssohn, Philosopher) "A philosophical problem has the form: 'I do not know my way about.'" (Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosopher) "The second O, orientation - as the repository of our genetic heritage, cultural tradition, and previous experiences - is the most important part of the O-O-D-A loop since it shapes the way we observe, the way we decide, the way we act." (John Boyd, Military Strategist)
Europa im Geisterkrieg : Studien zu Nietzsche by Werner Stegmaier( )

12 editions published in 2018 in 3 languages and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume unites 20 studies on Nietzsche by Werner Stegmaier, who has given strong impetus to Nietzsche's international research in the past three decades and, for eighteen years, together with Günter Abel, the Nietzsche Studies, the leading international organ of Nietzsche research. and published the monographs and texts on Nietzsche research. The studies deal with basic questions of Nietzsche's philosophy. They set (I) with its redefinition of truth and philosophy and (II) its temporalization of thinking under (III) renouncing 'reason' in the determination of man, interpret from here the (IV) anti-teachings of Nietzsche's Zarathustra, outline (V) Nietzsche's ethics for 'good Europeans' and conclude (VI) with the interpretation of Nietzsche's self-assessment as the fate of philosophy and humanity (Ecce Homo, Why I Am a Destiny 1) and an assessment of Nietzsche's future, which has started for over a century. Werner Stegmaier, born in 1946, was the founding director of the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Greifswald after the collapse of the Soviet Union and established the North and East European Forum for Philosophy, which brought the Institute of Philosophy around the Baltic Sea into new conversation with each other and there to philosophical reorientations contributed. He has worked in a variety of fields, including metaphysics and its basic concept of substance, great philosophers from antiquity to the present, the philosophical relevance of Jewish tradition, and above all to the philosophy of Nietzsche. He was always concerned with questions of First Philosophy, especially what constitutes our reality, how it is conveyed through signs and communication, how concepts exist in time and what we are dealing with in thinking. He introduced the concept of orientation as an elementary concept of philosophy and developed a comprehensive philosophy of orientation

15 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nietzsche ist mit dem 1887 erschienenen V. Buch der Fröhlichen Wissenschaft sein reifstes Aphorismen-Werk gelungen. Es handelt von der Heiterkeit der Zwischenzeit, in der die Befreiung des Geistes von jahrtausendealten Vorurteilen gelingt, bis die von der Tragödie des Nihilismus erreicht werden, die zu ihrer Orientierung weiterhin feste Bindungen nötig haben. Viele der 40 + 1 Aphorismen gehören zu den prominentesten in Nietzsches Werk. Hier werden sie methodisch in ihren internen und externen Kontexten und ihrer stets aussagekräftigen schriftstellerischen Form erschlossen. Dabei werden neue Tiefen in Nietzsches Philosophie sichtbar

Orientierung im Nihilismus - Luhmann meets Nietzsche by Werner Stegmaier( )

8 editions published in 2016 in German and English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite very different approaches to basic philosophical choices, Luhmann?s sociological systems theory and Nietzsche?s philosophy have convergent features. Taken together, their radical new approaches leave most philosophies and sociologies of the 19th and 20th centuries looking literally ancient. They may be viewed as pioneers in developing a philosophy for the 21st century, for setting a calm path amidst the disruptions of nihilism

Zur Philosophie der Orientierung by Andrea Christian Bertino( )

4 editions published in 2016 in German and English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Orientation is situated at the beginning of all things, without itself being a graspable beginning. Therefore, the Philosophy of Orientation does not regard orientation as a mere precondition, but rather, based on it, rethinks thought itself. This volume develops Werner Stegmaier's authentic approach and examines its significance for philosophy, and beyond philosophy, for a broader realm of discussion and reflection."--

Friedrich Nietzsche zur Einführung by Werner Stegmaier( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2020 in German and Chinese and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nur scheinbar ist über Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) alles gesagt. Das Vielgestaltige in Leben und Werk, die Dynamik und Offenheit seines Denkens haben noch jede auf dogmatische Lehrsätze ausgehende Interpretation unterlaufen. Nietzsches kritische philosophische Kraft ist ohne seine Lebenserfahrungen einerseits und die Formen seiner philosophischen Schriftstellerei andererseits nicht angemessen zu verstehen. Diese Einführung gibt einen fundierten Überblick über Nietzsches leitende Unterscheidungen, eine Anleitung zur methodischen Nietzsche-Interpretation und eine neue Deutung seiner berühmten und berüchtigten Begriffe des Willens zur Macht, des Übermenschen und der ewigen Wiederkehr des Gleichen. Zugleich erschliesst sie Nietzsches Kosmos auf unsere aktuellen Orientierungen hin
