If there exists a philosophy, then there must also be for this philosophy a system of pure rational concepts, independent of any condition of intuition, in other words, a metaphysic. It may be asked whether metaphysical elements are required also for every practical philosophy, which is the doctrine of duties, and therefore also for Ethics.

Der Ausdruck Kritik in der Kritik der reinen Vernunft meint daher eine Selbstbegrenzung, die die Vernunft vornimmt, um sich vor Urteilen über Sachverhalte zu bewahren, die jenseits der Grenzen möglicher Erfahrung liegen, wie etwa Gott, Freiheit und Unsterblichkeit. Einzig bei der Freiheit, seinem Vermögen, sittlich zu handeln, ist dem Menschen ein Durchbruch in eine Welt möglich, die nicht vollständig beschrieben werden kann, wenn man sie nur im Licht der Naturgesetze betrachtet. Die Freiheit hat laut Kant ihre eigenen Gesetze. Ihnen widmet sich der Philosoph in seiner zweiten Kritik, der Kritik der praktischen Vernunft, die seine systematische Moralphilosophie enthält

Beyond Good and Evil is a book by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. It takes up and expands on the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but approached from a more critical, polemical direction. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting Judeo-Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favor of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectivistic nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual. In it he exposes the deficiencies of those usually called "philosophers" and identifies the qualities of the "new philosophers" imagination, self-assertion, danger, originality, and the "creation of values".

The ordinary reader will probably be somewhat surprised to discover in the aphorisms of the ancient Greeks and Hindus several close parallels to the doctrines of the Old and New Testaments, and he will have reasoned justly if he conclude that the so-called "heathens" could have derived their spiritual light only from the same Source as that which inspired the Hebrew prophets and the Christian apostles.

"HOW TO MARRY WELL" by Margaret Wolfe Hungerford (aka The Duchess), is just a brilliant work in so many ways. Fans of the Victorian era will rejoice to hear that particular 'voice' in her writing. And history lovers will be able to comb it over for delicious tidbits as Ms. Hungerford reveals her advice to young women, and her expectations of how they might act. I particularly liked where she admonishes society for releasing girls into society with so little education. "A smattering of French, a word or two of German, an idea of what music really means, as gained from three years' acquaintances with scales and movements, and songs without words--and that is all! There is, of course, a good deal of reading of the scientific masters that serves only to puzzle the brains half given to the matter in hand, and then the girl is emancipated from the schoolroom". And I personally found her advice to be most sound. And I'm plotting, even as I write this, on to how to get my own daughter to read this tract. It's short and fun, though I must tell you that Ms. Hungerford is not a duchess. She's just a mom and a writer with common sense and an active imagination.

Le Discours de la méthode est aussi l'occasion pour Descartes de présenter une morale provisoire, tenant en quelques maximes de conduite, et de développer des considérations sur les animaux (théorie des « animaux-machines ») et sur le rôle du cœur dans la circulation du sang. Enfin, le traité présente des déclarations sur le rapport de l'homme à la nature, représentatives de la modernité, puisque Descartes y dit que les hommes doivent se « rendre comme maîtres et possesseurs de la nature », par le progrès des techniques, au premier plan desquelles il recommande d'améliorer la médecine.

Thus, a real man and a figure in a picture can both lay claim to the name 'animal'; yet these are equivocally so named, for, though they have a common name, the definition corresponding with the name differs for each. For should any one define in what sense each is an animal, his definition in the one case will be appropriate to that case only.

Sous le nom d'Éthiopiens, les Grecs comprenoient tous les hommes noirs. Cette assertion s'appuie sur des passages de la bible des Septante, d'Hérodote, Théophraste, Pausanias, Athénée, Héliodore, Eusèbe, Flavius Josephe. Ils sont appelés de même par Pline l'ancien et Térence. On distinguoit les Éthiopiens orientaux, ou indiens, ou d'Asie, des Éthiopiens occidentaux, ou d'Afrique. Rome connut ceux-ci sans doute dans ses guerres avec les Carthaginois, qui en avoient dans leurs armées, à ce que prétend Macpherson, fondé sur un passage de Frontin. Rome ayant plus que la Grèce des relations fréquentes avec les côtes occidentales de l'Afrique, quelquefois, dans les auteurs latins, les Noirs furent appelés Africains. Mais en Orient, on continua de les désigner sous l1e nom d'Éthiopiens, parce qu'ils y arrivoient par la voie de l'Éthiopie, qui depuis l'an 651 paya, pendant assez longtemps aux Arabes, un tribut annuel d'esclaves, et qui, pour acquitter ce tribut, en tiroit peut-être de l'intérieur de l'Afrique. On les employoit à la guerre, car dans celle des croisades, on voit à Hébron, et au siége de Jérusalem, en 1099, des Noirs à cheveux crépus, que Guillaume de Malmesbury appelle également Éthiopiens.

This is an honest and earnest little book, if it has no other merit; and has been prepared expressly for the use of the young people of our great Republic, whom it is designed to aid in becoming, what we are convinced they all desire to be, true American ladies and gentlemen. Desiring to make our readers something better than mere imitators of foreign manners, often based on social conditions radically different from our own--something better than imitators of _any_ manners, in fact, we have dwelt at greater length and with far more emphasis upon general principles, than upon special observances, though the latter have their place in our work. It has been our first object to impress upon their minds the fact, that good manners and good morals rest upon the same basis, and that justice and benevolence can no more be satisfied without the one than without the other.

The science of Pedagogics cannot be derived from a simple principle with such exactness as Logic and Ethics. It is rather a mixed science which has its presuppositions in many others. In this respect it resembles Medicine, with which it has this also in common, that it must make a distinction between a sound and an unhealthy system of education, and must devise means to prevent or to cure the latter. It may therefore have, like Medicine, the three departments of Physiology, Pathology, and Therapeutics.

De l'esprit des lois est un traité de théorie politique publié par Montesquieu à Genève en 1748. Cette œuvre majeure, qui lui a pris quatorze ans de travail, a d'abord été publiée sans nom d'auteur à cause de la censure, et a fait l'objet d'une mise à l'Index en 1751. Dans cet ouvrage, Montesquieu suit une méthode révolutionnaire pour l'époque : il refuse de juger ce qui est par ce qui doit être, et choisit de traiter des faits politiques en dehors du cadre abstrait des théories volontaristes et jusnaturalistes1. Il défend ainsi une théorie originale de la loi : au lieu d'en faire un commandement à suivre2, il en fait un rapport à observer et à ajuster entre des variables. Parmi ces variables, il distingue des causes culturelles (traditions, religion, etc. ) et des causes naturelles (climat, géographie, etc. ). Il livre à partir de là une étude sociologique des mœurs politiques.

Richard Swinburne presents a substantially rewritten and updated edition of his most celebrated book. No other work has made a more powerful case for the probability of the existence of God. Swinburne gives a rigorous and penetrating analysis of the most important arguments for theism: the cosmological argument; arguments from the existence of laws of nature and the 'fine-tuning' of the universe; from the occurrence of consciousness and moral awareness; and from miracles and religious experience. He claims that while none of these arguments are deductively valid, they do give inductive support to theism and that, even when the argument from evil is weighed against them, taken together they offer good grounds to support the probability that there is a God. The overall structure of the discussion and its conclusion have been retained for this new edition, but much has been changed in order to strengthen the argumentation and to take account of Swinburne's subsequent work onthe nature of consciousness and the problem of evil, and of the latest philosophical and scientific writing, especially in respect of the laws of nature and the argument from fine-tuning. This is now the definitive version of a classic in the philosophy of religion.

De Ethica vormt het hoofdwerk van Spinoza (1632-1677); zijn wijsgerig systeem wordt hier volledig ontwikkeld. Wij hebben derhalve niet te maken met een ethiek in de hedendaagse zin van het woord. Spinoza zoekt een geheel nieuwe levensrichting die een algehele breuk inhoudt met wereldbeeld en Godsbegrip van de Middeleeuwen. Spinoza biedt zijn denken aan "in meetkundige trant uiteengezet". In de 17e eeuw was dit een zeer gebruikelijke vorm voor het opzetten van betogen. De aangeboden vertaling stamt van 1915. T. b. v. een eerdere uitgave van 1974 is de taal gemoderniseerd en zijn ook in de vertaling zelf wijzigingen aangebracht waardoor vooral de idealistisch-mystieke interpretatie van de vertaler werd afgezwakt. Een nieuwe wetenschappelijk-kritische vertaling blijft zeer wenselijk. Zolang deze niet voorhanden is, zal ieder die Spinoza grondig wil leren kennen op deze uitgave zijn aangewezen.

Ainsi parlait Zarathoustra est une oeuvre philosophique magistrale. Elle a bouleversé la pensée de l'Occident. "Nietzsche démolit, il sape", disait Gide. Il remet définitivement l'homme en question. Poète-prophète, Zarathoustra se retire dans la montagne et revient parmi les hommes pour leur parler. Sa leçon essentielle : "Vouloir libère". Son leitmotiv : rejeter ce qui n'est pas voulu, conquis comme tel, tout ce qui est subi. C'est le sens du fameux: "Deviens celui que tu es". La vertu est souvent le droit du plus faible, elle paralyse tout, désir, création et joie. Le surhomme nietzschéen est celui qui a la plus grande diversité d'instincts qui s'opposent puissamment mais qu'il maîtrise. La pensée de Nietzsche est un défi permanent. Elle échappe à tout système politique. La ferveur de sa poésie, sa vigou.

In this, we have the answer to our first question: How does the believer in the new faith picture his heaven?.

Les Livres de raison, tenus jadis au foyer de presque toutes nos familles de moyenne et de petite noblesse, de magistrature, de riche bourgeoisie, —en usage chez les artisans des villes comme chez les propriétaires ruraux, avaient été, jusqu'à ces dernières années, complètement négligés par les érudits. Il y a cinquante ans, nul ne songeait à les disputer aux rats, aux vers et à l'humidité, à les tirer de la poussière des greniers où ils dormaient oubliés depuis la Révolution, —depuis plus longtemps, peut-être; car, bien avant 1789, les liens de la famille s'étaient relâchés, et le respect des traditions avait perdu son empire. A peine quelques descendants respectueux avaient-ils pris les précautions indispensables pour soustraire les notes intimes de leurs ancêtres à toutes les causes de destruction qui les menaçaient. Un certain nombre de manuscrits domestiques furent ainsi sauvés; mais on ne les feuilleta guère, et, dans ceux qu'on ouvrit, on chercha surtout des renseignements généalogiques. C'est là sans doute un des genres d'informations qu'on peut leur demander; mais leur valeur à ce point de vue, si notable qu'elle soit, constitue un de leurs moindres mérites, et ils présentent, à beaucoup d'autres égards, un intérêt plus sérieux et d'un ordre incomparablement plus élevé.

Along with his critique of the civilized world, Thoreau examines other issues afflicting man in society, ranging from economy and reading to solitude and higher laws.

It is a philosophy book. Our minds as it were into some angelic prior state. If, as we have seen probable, evil (a concretion always, not an abstraction) made some perceptible ravages even in the unbounded sphere of a heavenly creation, how much more rapid and overwhelming would its avalanche (once ill-commenced) be seen, when the site of its infliction was a poor band of men and women prisoned on a speck of earth. How likely was it that, in the lapse of no long time, the whole world should have been 'corrupt before God, and filled with wickedness'. How probable, that taking into account the great duration of pristine human life, the wicked family of man should speedily have festered up into an intolerable guiltiness. And was this dread result of the primal curse and disobedience to be regarded as the Adversary's triumph.

The book belongs to Philosophy. This work was begun, soon after the appearance of the Young Man's Guide and was partially announced to the public. For reasons, however, which I have not room to give in this place, it was thought proper to defer its publication till the appearance of several other volumes in the same spirit, involving more particularly the relative duties. I wish to have it distinctly understood, that I do not propose to give a complete manual of the social and moral duties of young women. Every one has his own way of looking at things, and I have mine. Some of the duties of young women have appeared to me to receive from other writers less attention than their comparative importance demands; and others especially those which are connected with the great subject of "temperance in all things" I have believed to be treated, in several respects, erroneously. Permit me, however, to say, that while I have not intended to follow the path, or repeat the ideas of any other writer, I have not attempted to avoid either the one or the other. If I have presented here and there a thought which had already come before the public from my own pen, I can only say that I did not intend it, although I did not take special pains to avoid it. The sum is this. I have presented my thoughts, without so much reference to what has already been said by myself or others, as to what I have supposed to be the necessities of those for whom I write. I have gone straight forward, asking no questions; and I trust I shall be dealt with in a manner equally direct.

The book is a collection essays. In these essay matters like mankind and politics and discussed. The ensuing essay concerning the growth of the city of London was entitled "Another Essay", intimating that some other essay had preceded it, which was not to be found. I having been much importuned for that precedent essay, have found that the same was about the growth, increase, and multiplication of mankind, which subject should in order of nature precede that of the growth of the city of London, but am not able to procure the essay itself, only I have obtained from a gentleman, who sometimes corresponded with Sir W. Petty, an extract of a letter from Sir William to him, which I verily believe containeth the scope thereof; wherefore, I must desire the reader to be content therewith, till more can be had. The extract of a letter concerning the scope of an essay intended to precede another essay concerning the growth of the City of London, &c. An Essay in Political Arithmetic, concerning the value and increase of People and Colonies. The scope of this essay is concerning people and colonies, and to make way for "Another Essay" concerning the growth of the city of London. I desire in this first essay to give the world some light concerning the numbers of people in England, with Wales, and in Ireland; as also of the number of houses and families wherein they live, and of acres they occupy.

抱朴子曰:命之修短,实由所值,受气结胎,各有星宿。天道无为,任物自然,无亲无疏,无彼无此也。命属生星,则其人必好仙道,求之亦必得也。命属死星,则其人亦不信仙道,不信仙道,则亦不自修其事。所乐善否,判于所禀,移易予夺,非天所能。
