Hegel and the tradition : essays in honour of H.S. Harris by Michael Baur( )

21 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in English and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) is considered a philosopher of the Tradition, both in the sense that his work is rooted in the political, artistic, religious, and philosophical traditions of European culture and in the sense that he takes up the notion of tradition as an object of philosophical investigation. This collection examines Hegel's philosophy as it bears on the meaning and relevance of tradition - historical, legal, aesthetic, religious, and philosophical. The thirteen original essays draw upon and celebrate the work of H.S. Harris, who is considered by many to be the most influential interpreter of Hegel in the English-speaking world."--Jacket

The emergence of German idealism by Michael Baur( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, an international group of leading scholars shows how the various aspirations at work in the emergence of German Idealism - moral, religious, aesthetic, political, and epistemological - can be understood as both consummating and overcoming Kant's critical philosophy. The volume also includes a chronology of the major works in the development of German Idealism, as well as a new translation of the seminal and still-controversial essay, "The Earliest System Programme of German Idealism.""--BOOK JACKET
Foundations of natural right : according to the principles of the Wissenschaftslehre by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fichte's thought marks a crucial transitional stage between Kant and post-Kantian philosophy. Foundations of natural right, thought by many to be Fichte's most important work of political philosophy, applies his ideas to fundamental issues in political and legal philosophy, covering such topics as civic freedom, right, private property, contracts, family relations, and the foundations of modern political organization. This volume offers the first complete translation of the work into English, by Michael Baur, together with an introduction by Frederick Neuhouser that sets it in its philosophical and historical context
The Beatles and philosophy : nothing you can think that can't be thunk by Michael Baur( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: The Beatles rapidly evolved from producing innocent teenage love lyrics to posing profound and disturbing questions about reality. They revolutionized popular songs intellectually as well as musically. Their work and their influence distilled all the enthusiasms and disquiets of the Sixties: the longing for more authentic relationships, the skepticism about radical leaders both spiritual and political, the eager yet critical embrace of consumer culture, the chemically assisted lift-off into inner space. In The Beatles and Philosophy, twenty professional philosophers and ardent Beatles fans take a close look at the thought of the Beatles, and explore the implications of their ideas for life, love, society, politics, and spirituality
G.W.F. Hegel : key concepts by Michael Baur( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The thought of G.W.F. Hegel (1770 -1831) has had a deep and lasting influence on a wide range of philosophical, political, religious, aesthetic, cultural and scientific movements. But, despite the far-reaching importance of Hegel's thought, there is often a great deal of confusion about what he actually said or believed. G.W.F. Hegel: Key Concepts provides an accessible introduction to both Hegel's thought and Hegel-inspired philosophy in general, demonstrating how his concepts were understood, adopted and critically transformed by later thinkers. The first section of the book covers the principal philosophical themes in Hegel's system: epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, ethical theory, political philosophy, philosophy of nature, philosophy of art, philosophy of religion, philosophy of history and theory of the history of philosophy. The second section covers the main post-Hegelian movements in philosophy: Marxism, existentialism, pragmatism, analytic philosophy, hermeneutics and French poststructuralism. The breadth and depth of G.W.F. Hegel: Key Concepts makes it an invaluable introduction for philosophical beginners and a useful reference source for more advanced scholars and researchers"--

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel : the phenomenology of spirit by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hegel's 'Phenomenology of spirit' (1807) is one of the most influential texts in the history of modern philosophy. In it, Hegel proposed an arresting and novel picture of the relation of mind to world and of people to each other. Like Kant before him, Hegel offered up a systematic account of the nature of knowledge, the influence of society and history on claims to knowledge, and the social character of human agency itself. A bold new understanding of what, after Hegel, came to be called 'subjectivity' arose from this work, and it was instrumental in the formation of later philosophies, such as existentialism, Marxism, and American pragmatism, each of which reacted to Hegel's radical claims in different ways. This edition offers a new translation, an introduction, and glossaries to assist readers' understanding of this central text

Beitrag zur rechnerischen Überprüfung von Betonhohlkastenbrücken by Gregor Borkowski( )

The structural assessment of existing bridges is gaining increasing importance within civil engineering, as many reinforced concrete bridges that were built 40 to 60 years ago show deficiencies regarding serviceability as well as load-bearing capacity. These deficiencies are due to poor detailing, increasing traffic loads as well as structural damage caused by vehicles, environmental influences and material fatigue. To ensure that the bridges remain viable, it is necessary to carry out structural assessments using state-of-the-art methods and to estimate the structural performance under current and future traffic loads. When the structural capacity of these bridges is assessed using widely used, simple static models, the bridges often do not meet the requirements of the current design codes. This is due to the fact that the design actions determined from simple models are greater than the capacities calculated according to current design codes. The shear capacities of concrete box girder bridges in particular are often insufficient, because previous design codes stipulated lower design loads and allowed lower shear reinforcement ratios in the webs. As current design codes demand larger shear resistances for webs and deck slabs, elaborate and expensive strengthening measures and even partial or complete bridge renewals can become necessary. Using more detailed analyses of the design loads and the structural behaviour of the bridges, more realistic design actions and structural resistances can be obtained. It is hence possible to gain a more complete understanding of the flow of forces and the structural resistances of the bridges. Therefore, this dissertation is concerned with determining the flow of forces in single- and multi-cell concrete box girder bridges. The goal is to show that the existing bridges meet the requirements stipulated in the current design codes, so that costly rehabilitation measures can be avoided. The focus of this dissertation is on determining the shear forces in the critical sections: in the webs near the supports as well as in the areas of the deck slab close to the webs. Experience shows that existing bridges generally have sufficient bending capacities, as they usually contain a sufficient amount of flexural reinforcement and are highly prestressed. The shear forces are determined according to the traffic load model described in DIN Report 101 [35], using spatial finite element calculations with shell elements and linear-elastic material laws. The comparison of these FE results with the results obtained from a two-dimensional analysis of framed structures shows distinct differences between the two methods. The analysis of framed structures yields non-conservative results for multi-cell sections, as the shear force is assumed to be evenly distributed among the webs as the bridge bends. The 3D FE calculations, however, indicate that the shear forces flow mainly through the webs closest to the load. Subsequently, the shear forces are determined from spatial FE models with non-linear material laws for reinforced concrete and compared with the results from the previous, linear-elastic analyses. Compared with the linear-elastic approach, the non-linear calculations yield lower shear forces in the critical web sections near the central support and higher shear forces in the critical sections near the end supports. An explanation for the different results obtained from the non-linear calculations is that the areas of the deck slab close to the webs aid in resisting the shear forces in the direction of the bridge axis. On the other hand, the load paths within the bridges change significantly, causing a decrease in the inclination of the compression fields and a hence a reduction of stress in the webs. Further investigations show that due to the redistribution of the longitudinal shear forces from the webs to the slabs the existing shear resistance in the slabs is not exceeded. The effective width of the deck slab overhang for point loads is also determined in this document. It is shown that the effective width is dependent on the slab geometry as well as on the location of the point load on the deck slab overhangs. The calculated effective widths are smaller for sections close to the diaphragms than elsewhere in the span. Diagrams based on these calculations are presented; they can be used to determine the effective slab widths for sections close to the diaphragms
