Philosophy


Philosophy as a category is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek philosophia, which literally means "love of wisdom".

Frate Cu Meridianele Si Paralelele, Vol. 2

By: Florentin Smarandache

Vizitam mina Queen din oraselul asezat între dealuri, dar cochet, Bisbee. N-am stiut ca pe la începutul secolului Bisbee era cea mai mare localitate din Arizona (datorita mineritului). Mergem cu masina lui Ely, MAZDA ’84 – are deja peste 120.000 de mile la bord. Mina Queen a fost deschisa în 1917, în 1920 electrificata, în 1941 închisa, iar în 1975 refacuta pentru turisti. E grea viata sub pamânt! Nesigura, umezeala, întuneric. Intram la 500 de picioare adâncime pe o lun...

A Unifying Field in Logics : Neutrosophic Logic. Neutrosophy, Neut...

By: Florentin Smarandache

It was known to me his setting up in 1980’s of a new literary and artistic avant-garde movement that he called “paradoxism”, because I received some books and papers dealing with it in order to review them for the German journal “Zentralblatt fár Mathematik”. It was an inspired connection he made between literature/arts and science, philosophy.

Paradoxism is an avant-garde movement in literature, art, philosophy, science, based on excessive used of antitheses, antinomies, contradictions, parables, odds, paradoxes in creations.

I and Thou

By: Martin Bube

Tms work in its oripl, German form has already, since its publication fourteen years ago, exercised. on the Continent an influence, quite out of proportion to its slender size. In view of this influence alone it may be affirmed that 1 and Thou will rank &8 one of the epoch-making books 9f our generation. It has hitherto been eomparatively Unknown among English-speaking students of philosophy and theology.

The primal natm:e of the effort to establish relation is already to be seen in the earliest and most confined stage. Before anything isolated can be perceived, timid glances mOve out into indistinct space, towards something indefinite; and in times when there seems to be no desire for nourishment, hands sketch delicately and dimly in the empty air, apparently aimlessly seeking and reaching out to meet something indefinite. You may, if you wish, call this an animal acti...

Sextus Empiricus and Greek Scepticism

By: Mary Mills Patrick

The following treatise on Sextus Empiricus and Greek Scepticism has been prepared to supply a need much felt in the English language by students of Greek philosophy. For while other schools of Greek philosophy have been exhaustively and critically discussed by English scholars, there are few sources of information available to the student who wishes to make himself familiar with the teachings of Pyrrhonism. The aim has been, accordingly, to give a concise presentation of...

“Interest has revived in the works of Sextus Empiricus in recent times, especially, one may say, since the date of Herbart. There is much in the writings of Sextus that finds a parallel in the methods of modern philosophy. There is a common starting-point in the study of the power and limitations of human thought. There is a common desire to investigate the phenomena of sense-perception, and the genetic relations of man to the lower animals, and a common interest in the ...

Allegorical Expositions of the Holy Laws

By: Philo of Alexandria

Philo used philisophical representations to fuse and harmonize Jewish traditions and Greek philosophy. It interprets both Jewish and historic Greek philosophies.

“It is a melancholy reflection upon the history of the Jews that they have failed to pay due honor to their two greatest philosophers. Spinoza was rejected by his contemporaries from the congregation of Israel; Philo Judaeus was neglected by the generations that followed him.”

Annals, From the Death of the Divine Augustus

By: Cornelius Tacitus

The Annals was Tacitus's final work, covering the period from the death of Augustus Caesar in the year 14. He wrote at least 16 books, but books 7-10 and parts of books 5, 6, 11 and 16 are missing. Book 6 ends with the death of Tiberius and books 7-12 presumably covered the reigns of Caligula and Claudius. The remaining books cover the reign of Nero, perhaps until his death in June 68 or until the end of that year, to connect with the Histories. The second half of book 1...

Es ist gewiss ein wunderbares Ereigniss, dass am Ende des Zeitraums der romischen Litteratur, welcher zwar viel des Geistreichen und Vorzuglichen, aber noch mehr Verrungen hervorgebracht hat, in weichem sich neben der sittlichen Versukenbeit eine grosse Verweichlichung und Entkraflung auch in der Litteratur zeight und nach welchem der entschiedene Verfall der romischen Lutteratur beginnt, ein Schrifsteller auftritt, der zu den ausgezeichnetsten und grossartigsten Erschei...
