              Zug nge Zur Rationalit t Der Zukunft

              Zug nge Zur Rationalit t Der Zukunft (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Edited by Karafyllis, Nicole C.; Schmidt, Jan C.

              Rationalitat ist der vordringlichste Anspruch, der vor allem in der Wissenschaft an den denkenden und handelnden Menschen gestellt wird. Ist jedoch eine Handlung oder Fragestellung, die fur einen Okonomen rational ist, auch fur einen Physiker, eine Biologin, einen Philosophen, Ju...risten, Theologen, oder gar fur einen Nicht-Wissenschaftler rational? Rationalitat wird in diesem Band hier nicht, wie ublich, nur als formaler Begriff verstanden, sondern er wird an gelingende Praxen menschlichen Lebens gebunden. Zu Beginn des Jahrtausends ist die Gestaltung der Eigendynamik von Technologien, z.B. die der Bio- und Informationstechnologien, zu einer zentralen Herausforderung geworden.

              Naturphilosophie: Ein Lehr- Und Studienbuch

              Naturphilosophie: Ein Lehr- Und Studienbuch (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Edited by Karafyllis, Nicole C.; Kirchhoff, Thomas

              Was Natur ist und sein konnte, ist eine der meist debattierten Fragen der Geistesgeschichte. Dieses Lehrbuch bietet eine umfassende Einfuhrung in das naturphilosophische Denken von der Antike bis in die Gegenwart. Tradierte Grundbegriffe wie Kosmos und Leben, aber auch jungere wi...e Quanten und Felder werden eigenstandig erlautert, experimentelle, leibliche, asthetische, religiose und weitere Naturverhaltnisse differenziert erortert. Daruber hinaus wird die Bedeutung der Naturphilosophie im aktuellen Praxiszusammenhang behandelt: von Diskursen um Ernahrung und Gentechnik bis hin zur Faszination fur die Kosmologie. Ausfuhrliche Personen- und Sachregister runden den Band ab. Das Lehrbuch nimmt den pluralen Charakter der Wahrnehmung von, des Sprechens uber und des Umgangs mit Natur in den philosophischen Blick und ist auch zum Selbststudium bestens geeignet. Die weiteren Herausgeber: Dirk Evers, Brigitte Falkenburg, Myriam Gerhard, Gerald Hartung, Jurgen Hubner, Kristian Kochy, Ulrich Krohs, Thomas Potthast, Otto Schafer, Gregor Schiemann, Magnus Schlette, Reinhard Schulz, Frank Vogelsang
