Jakob von Uexküll : the discovery of the Umwelt between biosemiotics and theoretical biology by Carlo Brentari( )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is a comprehensive introduction to the work of the Estonian-German biologist Jakob von Uexküll. After a first introductory chapter by Morten Tønnessen and a second chapter on Uexküll's life and philosophical background, it contains four chapters devoted to the analysis of his main works; they are followed by a vast eighth chapter which deals with the influence Uexküll had on other philosophers and scientists, and by a conclusions focused on the possibility of updating Uexküll's work. The monograph combines a careful reconstruction of the historical context in which the Uexküllian concepts emerged (the debate between mechanism and vitalism, contemporary scientific studies) and a thorough analysis of the philosophical contents of the Uexküllian views. As far as the key issue is concerned, Uexküll's notion of Umwelt refers to the perceptive and operative world which surrounds animal species; it is a subjective species-specific construction which provides living organisms with great security and behaviour stability. Moreover, the relationship that the animal carries out with its environment proves to be a complex system of semiotic interactions: its behaviour is not a set of mechanical reactions, but the result of a spontaneous attribution of meaning to the outside world, whose environmental elements are actively interpreted by the subject. The environment of animal species becomes a field of meaning, an exceedingly complex subjective elaboration; this can lessen the distance between animals and men, crediting both with the cognitive ability to grasp meanings and to use signs
La nascita della coscienza simbolica : l'antropologia filosofica di Susanne Langer by Carlo Brentari( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in Italian and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antropologia cristiana by Romano Guardini( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Italian and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La traduzione di questo inedito (1931-1939) è un tassello fondamentale per comprendere il pensiero di Guardini sull'antropologia cristiana nella sua evoluzione. È centrale, in queste pagine, la necessità di rispondere, in quanto cristiano, alle incognite del mondo moderno - come l'evoluzionismo, l'eutanasia, l'eugenetica o l'ingegneria sociale - e riflettere sulla portata dei mutamenti sociali e culturali che esso comporta. Una domanda che attraversa l'intera opera guardiniana e mostra qui il suo nucleo antropologico più profondo: ontologicamente l'uomo è relazione aperta, verso l'altro, Dio, o il nulla. Spetta all'uomo - provocato dalla modernità - la libera decisione

Fenomenologia del dono by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dagli anni Ottanta del 20. secolo, con autori come Jean-Luc Marion, Michel Henry ed Emilie Tardivel, la fenomenologia francese ha assunto una fisionomia originale, che le deriva dall'aver elevato a idee direttrici concetti come quelli di dono, nascita, evento e chiamata e dall'avere ripensato il ruolo del soggetto tramite le corrispondenti nozioni di testimone, donatario e "interloquito". Il volume offre, in prima traduzione italiana, sei saggi - tre di Jean-Luc Marion e tre di Emilie Tardivel -che testimoniano della perdurante vitalità di questa prospettiva. In un puntuale confronto con i classici della fenomenologia (in primo luogo Heidegger e Husserl), ma anche con il pensiero cristiano (Agostino) e con pensatori più recenti (Jan Patocka, Claude Romano), le analisi fenomenologiche di Marion e Tardivel sanno restituire la meraviglia del primo sguardo dell'io venuto al mondo, la gratitudine di fronte al sovrabbondante donarsi dell'essere e la pienezza di senso che si offre a chi presta orecchio, in ogni cosa, all'eco dell'origine

Thinking about animals in the age of the Anthropocene by Almo Farina( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The term 'Anthropocene', the era of mankind, is increasingly being used as a scientific designation for the current geological epoch. This is because the human species now dominates ecosystems worldwide, and affects nature in a way that rivals natural forces in magnitude and scale. 'Thinking about Animals in the Age of the Anthropocene' presents a dozen chapters that address the role and place of animals in this epoch characterized by anthropogenic (human-made) environmental change
