By Dimitris Vardoulakis

The Doppelgnger or Double offers literature because the doubleof philosophy. There are old purposes for this. The genesis of the Doppelgnger is literature's reaction to the philosophical concentrate on subjectivity. The Doppelgnger used to be coined by way of the German writer Jean Paul in 1796 as a critique of Idealism's statement of subjective autonomy, individuality and human service provider. This critique prefigures post-War extrapolations of the topic as decentred. From this attitude, the Doppelgnger has a kin resemblanceto present conceptualizations of subjectivity. It turns into the emblematic topic of modernity. this is often the 1st major learn at the Doppelgnger's impact on philosophical suggestion. The Doppelgnger emerges as a hidden and unexplored aspect either in conceptions of subjectivity and in philosophy's relation to literature. Vardoulakis demonstrates this by way of using the Doppelgnger to learn literature philosophically and to learn philosophy as literature. The Doppelgnger then appears to be like instrumental within the self-conception of either literature and philosophy.

Download E-books Totalité et finitude : Spinoza et Heidegger PDF

Philosophy

By Jean-Marie Vaysse

Spinoza est le penseur de los angeles totalité qui, allant de l'être au connaître, fait, contre l. a. culture métaphysique, de l'Absolu le principe d'affirmation d'une finitude essentielle et montre que l'homme, tout en n'étant pas " comme un empire dans un empire ", peut cependant accéder au savoir de son appartenance à l. a. totalité comme reason prochaine, en une instinct intellectuelle que los angeles culture réservait à Dieu. Heidegger est le penseur de l. a. finitude ontologique, pour qui l. a. pensée de l'Être est ancrée dans l'analytique du Dasein comme cet étant dont l. a. seule essence est l'existence finie. Là où Spinoza suggest une éthique excédant l. a. logique de l. a. métaphysique, Heidegger entreprend un travail de déconstruction de celle-ci, visant à sa métamorphose en une autre pensée permettant de rejouer le emblems, los angeles mort, le divin. Heidegger parle peu de Spinoza qui semble court-circuiter le fil historial de sa lecture de l. a. métaphysique. remark comprendre ce quasi-silence, si ce n'est en admettant que l'éthique fait retour dans l'ontologie fondamentale ? L'ethos doit alors se penser comme un séjour, qui est tout à l. a. fois un habiter et une manière d'exister ordonnés à une vérité de l'Être. Celui-ci n'est le transcendant absolu qu'en tant qu'il n'est pas une transcendance ontique, mais l'immanence de ce fond abyssal duquel tout ek-sister doit s'arracher et à partir duquel il trouve sa tenue. Joie lively, l. a. béatitude est l'affect ontologique par excellence, et elle est aussi l'angoisse comme sérénité. Le mutisme de Heidegger pourrait ainsi signifier un accord impensé avec los angeles seule pensée qui ne se laisse pas intégrer dans une histoire de l'Être et qui demeure comme une " anomalie sauvage ". S'il est vrai que tout penseur a deux philosophies, los angeles sienne et celle de Spinoza, on est en droit de se demander si l. a. philosophie de Spinoza ne fut pas l. a. philosophie silencieuse et sans cesse indicible de Heidegger
