  • Zijn wij ons brein?

    Studium Generale

Een discussie met grote implicaties voor de wetenschap en ons mensbeeld.

    Filosofie Meedenken of tegendenken, dat is het thema van dit eerste nummer van i-Filosofie. Moeten filosofen kritische eenlingen zijn, die vanuit de kantlijn de samenleving proberen bij te sturen, of is het juist zaak om met de filosofische gereedschapskist in de hand met burgers en politici mee te denken.

Verder in dit nummer de forensische filosofie van Ton Derksen, de Fenomenologie van Hegel, een lezing van Martha Nussbaum over nieuwe religieuze intolerantie en nog veel meer.
  • The Prince

    Niccolò Machiavelli & W.K. Marriott (Translator)

    Filosofie The Prince (Italian: Il Principe, [il ˈprin.tʃi.pe]) is a political treatise by the Italian diplomat, historian and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. From correspondence a version appears to have been distributed in 1513, using a Latin title, De Principatibus (About Principalities). However, the printed version was not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. This was done with the permission of the Medici pope Clement VII, but "long before then, in fact since the first appearance of the Prince, in manuscript, controversy had swirled about his writings".
  • Notes from the Underground

    Filosofie The Secret Teachings of the Mystery Lights: A Handbook on Overcoming Humanity and Becoming Your Own God is a philosophical book by the band, business, and belief system of YACHT.  It was originally published as a limited-edition printed book in 2009 in conjunction with the release of YACHT's album See Mystery Lights.

It's now in a new electronic edition with plenty of supplementary materials, including the official YACHT tattoo policy, the YACHT publication "On Mantra," and a digitized version of the YACHT Catalogue of Influences 2007-2009.
  • Encyclopedia Demonica

    Mike Erkulev

    Filosofie Most non-fiction works start by positing a problem, a solution to which the work aims to provide. This book addresses three such problems. Problems that have been first acknowledged at different times, yet none of which have a universally accepted solution to this date. In addition to providing alternatives to existing solutions of these problems, the aim of this book is to examine how they are interrelated and how solving each subsequent problem is not possible without having an adequate solution to the previous one. The first problem is as old as civilization itself. Its name is suffering. The problem of suffering is twofold: on one hand, thinkers throughout history have sought a way to cease suffering, on the other, many teachings have focused on finding a justification for it. While pursuing one of these directions does not necessarily exclude developments in the other, the most influential paradigms in human culture have usually focused on one of the two dilemmas. In the West the

  • Notes From The Underground

    Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    Filosofie This amazing novel marks the dividing line between nineteenth- and twentieth-century fiction, and between the visions of self each century embodied. One of the most remarkable characters in literature, the unnamed narrator is a former official who has defiantly withdrawn into an underground existence.

  • How to Live in the Present Moment: The Beginner's Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

    Beau Norton

    Filosofie If you are reading this now, you may have already come to the realization that striving for material gains and everything else the world calls “important” is not actually fulfilling. You probably have a yearning for something more significant. You might not know exactly what it is that you want, but I do know, because everyone on this planet is actually seeking the same thing… Each and every one of us is seeking for inner peace and a sense of completion. We attempt to reach this by different means, but the goal is always the same. Some people strive for this sense of completion by chasing money or success. Some people use food, some people use drugs, and some people use so-called ‘spirituality’ in an attempt to reach this state where they can finally say “all is well now.”  The problem with these means-to-an-end approaches is that they fail to take into account one simple truth, that time as we know it does not really exist. If you say, “I’m going to do this in
  • Introducción al Budismo

    H. Saddathissa

    Filosofie Dejad que se enfrente la verdad y la falsedad; Buda hizo hincapié en la completa libertad de pensamiento sin la cual no puede haber verdad ni comprensión ni se puede llevar al cabo ningún esfuerzo: No prestéis atención a lo que ha sido adquirido a fuerza de oírlo repetidamente; ni a la tradición, ni al rumor, ni a lo que hay en la escritura, ni prestéis atención a los axiomas, ni a sutiles razonamientos, ni a prejuicios respecto a un concepto que haya sido considerado con especial cuidado, ni a la capacidad aparente de otros, ni consideréis el dicho: «el monje es nuestro maestro». Cuando conozcáis por vosotros mismos: estas cosas son buenas; estas cosas no son censurables; estas cosas son alabadas por los sabios; cuando se llevan al cabo conducen al bienestar y a la felicidad, comenzadlas y permaneced en ellas.
  • The Republic

  • Beyond Good and Evil

    Friedrich Nietzsche & Helen Zimmern

    Filosofie Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future is a book by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886. It draws on and expands the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but with a more critical and polemical approach. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. Specifically, he accuses them of founding grand metaphysical systems upon the faith that the good man is the opposite of the evil man, rather than just a different expression of the same basic impulses that find more direct expression in the evil man. 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 favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern indi
  • Phaedo

    Filosofie The dead are first of all judged according to their deeds, and those who are incurable are thrust into Tartarus, from which they never come out. This deals with divine philosophy of existence.
  • Apology, Crito, and Phaedo of Socrates

    Plato

    Filosofie What Homer was to Epic poetry, what Cicero and Demosthenes were to oratory, and what Shakespeare was to the drama of England, Plato was to ancient philosophy, not unapproachable nor unapproached, but possessing an inexplicable but unquestioned supremacy. The theme revolves around religious philosophy.
  • Timaeus

    Plato

    Filosofie Timaeus is one of Plato's dialogues, mostly in the form of a long monologue given by the titular character, written circa 360 BC. The work puts forward speculation on the nature of the physical world and human beings and is followed by the dialogue Critias.
  • Protagoras

    Plato

    Filosofie The Protagoras, like several of the Dialogues , is put into the mouth of Socrates, who describes a conversation which had taken place between himself and the great Sophist at the house of Callias. Lombardo and Bell have translated this important early dialogue on virtue, wisdom, and the nature of Sophistic teaching into an idiom remarkable for its liveliness and subtlety. Michael Frede has provided a substantial introduction that illuminates the dialogue's perennial interest, its Athenian political background, and the particular difficulties and ironic nuances of its argument.
  • Meno

    Plato

    Filosofie The Meno begins abruptly with a question of Meno, who asks, whether virtue can be taught. Socrates replies that he does not as yet know what virtue is, and has never known anyone who did.

  • JeugdZORG? vergeet het maar!

    Rik Kroon

    Gezin en relaties Dit boek is gebaseerd op een waargebeurd verhaal. Opgetekend uit de ervaringen van een vader en zijn dochter. Het gaat over een zogeheten gebroken gezin; de ouders zijn gaan scheiden nadat hun problemen onoplosbaar bleken te zijn. En zoals vaak het geval is, is ook ditmaal het kind ook echt 'het kind van de rekening'. Het gaat over ongewenste gebeurtenissen in de jeugdzorg, ervaren met Bureau Jeugdzorg Overijssel, sinds kort genaamd Jeugdbescherming Overijssel, maar ook over een kind wat haar eigen onvermogen overwint. Niet dankzij maar ondanks het Bureau Jeugdzorg. Voor ouders die te maken hebben of krijgen met de jeugdzorg biedt het boek tips om valkuilen te vermijden. De medewerkers en beleidmakers binnen de jeugdzorg kunnen kennisnemen van hoe verstrekkend een verkeerd beleid kan zijn. Het kind om wie het gaat, wordt meestal niet gehoord. Dit boek heeft het betrokken kind de kans geboden om gehoord te worden. De auteur hoopt dan ook dat dit boek een positieve bijdrage zal oplevere

  • Ethica

    Benedictus de Spinoza

    Filosofie 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.
  • Beyond Good and Evil

    Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

    Filosofie 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".

We maakten het voor een aantal goede vrienden, maar besloten later het voor publicatie aan te bieden.

  • Politics: A Treatise on Government

    Aristotle

    Filosofie Ristotle provided many brilliant insights into the political thinking, strategy, of leaders and the military. In many ways, it remains unsurpassed and it ought to be required reading in undergraduate classes on political strategy.

  • Greetje Schrijft

    Greetje Vandekerckhove

    Gezin en relaties Dit boek is oorspronkelijk een afstudeerproject aan de richting Literaire Creatie aan de Academie te Genk. Greetje combineert in dit e-book het goede van verschillende genres; een resem verhalen over haar gezinsleven met echtgenoot en pubers worden vlot afgewisseld met overdenkingen, recepten en mooie foto's.  Een bonte mengeling van 'joie de vivre' en optimisme, veel meer dan een  verzameling van columns uit een vrouwenblad of de ernst van de krantencolumn. Recht uit het hart, pittig en met milde ironie gaat ze verder op het hobbelig pad van het leven. Vanuit die eigen invalshoek ontstaat een lappendeken van verhalen om je in te wentelen en het warm van te krijgen.

  • Walden

    Henry David Thoreau

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. He also takes time to talk about the experience at Walden Pond itself, commenting on the animals and the way people treated him for living there, using those experiences to bring out his philosophical positions.

  • Apology

    Plato

    Filosofie The Apology is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defended himself in 399 BC against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes. The Apology begins with Socrates saying he does not know if the men of Athens (his jury) have been persuaded by his accusers. This first sentence is crucial to the theme of the entire speech. Indeed, in the Apology Socrates will suggest that philosophy begins with a sincere admission of ignorance; he later clarifies this, dramatically stating that whatever wisdom he has, comes from his knowledge that he knows nothing.

    Filosofie Denken kun je niet uitbesteden aan een ander, stelt prof. Jan Bransen in zijn column in dit nummer van i-Filosofie.  Het is net zoiets als eten. Ook dat moet je zelf doen.

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
  • Why I Am Not a Christian

    Bertrand Russell

    Filosofie This is a famous but very controversial piece by Bertrand Russell. It was a lecture delivered in 1927 at National Secular Society, London. Later in 1957 it was part of a book with the same title and reached international fame. He examines one by one several highly regarded arguments for the existence (or necessity) of God. His main point however is the possibility of morality based on another principle than God. It is quite a challenging reading and one we must all face, regardless of our belief or lack of it, thereof. Enjoy!

  • The Memorable Thoughts of Socrates

    Xenophon

    Filosofie In writing he was clear and to the point; his practical mind made his work interesting. His "Anabasis" is a true story as delightful as a fiction; his "Cyropaedia" is a fiction full of truths. He wrote "Hellenica, " that carried on the history of Greece from the point at which Thucydides closed his history until the battle of Mantineia. He wrote a dialogue between Hiero and Simonides upon the position of a king, and dealt with the administration of the little realm of a man's household in his "OEconomicus, " a dialogue between Socrates and Critobulus, which includes the praise of agriculture.

  • The Problems of Philosophy

    Bertrand Russell

    Filosofie The Problems of Philosophy (1912) is one of Bertrand Russell's attempts to create a brief and accessible guide to the problems of philosophy. Focusing on problems he believes will provoke positive and constructive discussion, Russell concentrates on knowledge rather than metaphysics: If it is uncertain that external objects exist, how can we then have knowledge of them but by probability. There is no reason to doubt the existence of external objects simply because of sense data. Russell guides the reader through his famous 1910 distinction between "knowledge by acquaintance and knowledge by description" and introduces important theories of Plato, Aristotle, René Descartes, David Hume, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, G. W. F. Hegel and others to lay the foundation for philosophical inquiry by general readers and scholars alike.

  • De Nederlandsche Nationale Kleederdrachten

    Theodoor Molkenboer

    Sociale wetenschappen Molkenboer stelde zijn klederdrachtenboek samen in een tijd waarin de studie Volkenkunde zijn opwachting maakte. De oprichting van het tijdschrift Volkskunde in 1888 gold als begin van de Volkskunde als wetenschap. In die periode van industrialisatie en stedelijke groei ontstond er bij de burgerij een belangstelling voor de plattelandscultuur, die zij het liefst zagen als onveranderlijk en authentiek. Vanuit de burgerlijke belangstelling voor de volkskunst werden allerlei feestelijke manifestaties georganiseerd. Zo was er tijdens de herdenking van honderd jaar Nederlandse onafhankelijkheid in 1913 op het plein achter het Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam een zogeheten klederdrachtenfeest. Dit gebeurde onder leiding van Theo Molkenboer en koningin Wilhelmina was erbij aanwezig. In 1919 werd eenzelfde feest gegeven in het toen net geopende Openluchtmuseum in Arnhem. .

  • Racecar

    Matt Brown

    Vervoer In 2006, a small unavailing university auto racing team began building a racecar that would challenge the best engineering schools in the world. With fewer people and resources than any of the top competitors, the only way they were going to win was to push the limit, go for broke, and hope for more than a little luck. By the time they got to the racetrack, they knew: In the fog of fierce competition, whether you win or lose, you learn the hardest lessons about engineering, teamwork, friendship, and yourself.
  • Essays of Schopenhauer

    Arthur Schopenhauer

    Filosofie This selection of his writings on religion, ethics, politics, women and many other themes is taken from Schopenhauer's last work, Parerga and Paralipomena. He depicts humanity as locked in a struggle beyond good and evil, each individual absolutely free within a Godless world in which art, morality and self-awareness are our only salvation. This innovative and pessimistic view proved powerfully influential upon philosophy and art.
  • Het Leven der Dieren

    Alfred Edmund Brehm

    Sociale wetenschappen Het is tegenwoordig voor alle natuuronderzoekers een uitgemaakte zaak, dat het fret een, door gevangenschap en temming eenigszins veranderde, afstam- meling van den Bunzing is. Het Fret is reeds sinds overouden tijd bekend, hoewel alleen in getemden toestand. Wat gestalte en grootte betreft, gelijk het op een Bunzing. Wel is het iets kleiner en schraler, maar dit is bij vele dieren het geval, die geheel van den mensch afhankelijk zijn en dus slechts in gevangen staat leven. Gewoonlijk ziet men het Fret in Europa alleen als “Kakkerlak” of Albino, d. w. z. witachtig geel, van onderen iets donkerder van kleur en met lichtroode oogen. Slechts weinige exemplaren hebben een donkerder en daardoor een echt Bunzingachtig voorkomen.

  • Presentie, Ervaring, Aandacht

    Leon de Haas

    Filosofie Sinds 2007 ben ik als zelfstandig professional werkzaam in mijn filosofische praktijk. Kenmerkend voor mijn aanpak is een situatie - en ervaring -gerichte wijze van coachen. Mijn situationele en dialogische wijze van filosoferen zijn in de jaren 1980 voorbereid in een aantal studies rondom Georges Bataille en Joseph Beuys. Prof. Heinz Kimmerle gaf mij indertijd de gelegenheid om mij aan de Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam grondig in hen te verdiepen en een aantal essays te schrijven. Enkele van deze essays zijn hier gebundeld. Ze vormen een proeve van een filosofie van de ervaring en de situatie . Hun schrijfwijze is een poging om me te bevrijden van een stellige, wetende filosofie, op zoek naar een meer fenomenologische, vragende, onderzoekende en ontmoetende filosofie. Nu schrijf ik anders, maar toen was het nuttig. In 2009 schreef ik een inleiding op die opstellen uit 1987-1988. Sinds 2007 schreef ik voor het tijdschrift ‘Filosofie’ een aantal essays over een ervaringsgerichte en
  • De profundis

    Oscar Wilde

    Filosofie Op 28 februari 1895 liet de markies van Queensberry, vader van Lord Alfred Douglas, de 16 jaar jongere vriend van de gevierde schrijver Oscar Wilde, zijn visitekaartje achter in een Londense club met de beroemd geworden verschrijving: 'To Oscar Wilde posing as a somdomite'. Op aandringen van de mooie, verwende Douglas, die zijn querulante vader haatte, diende Wilde een aanklacht in wegens smaad. Dat was precies waar de markies op uit was: tijdens het proces keerde de bewijsvoering zich al gauw tegen Wilde en hij werd wegens 'het plegen van onzedelijke handelingen' veroordeeld tot de zwaarste straf: 2 jaar gevangenis met dwangarbeid. In de gevangenis schreef hij een lange brief aan Douglas ('Bosie'), waarin hij zowel de geadresseerde aanklaagt als zichzelf aan een genadeloos zelfonderzoek onderwerpt. Pas in 1949 werd de complete brief gepubliceerd en in 1971 vertaald (hier ongewijzigd herdrukt) door Gerrit Komrij, die we met recht de Nederlandse erfgenaam van de Wildeaanse geestigheid
  • Ethica. English

    Filosofie Terwijl westerse filosofie liefde voor wijsheid is, wil oosterse filosofie die wijsheid in dienst stellen van het leven zelf. Maar hoe doet oosterse filosofie dat?

  • Bases of Yoga

    Sri Aurobindo

    Filosofie In this collection of 156 extracts from letters to disciples, Sri Aurobindo explains the central principles and practices of his Integral Yoga.  "There can be no firm foundation in sadhana without equality, samatā. Whatever the unpleasantness of circumstances, however disagreeable the conduct of others, you must learn to receive them with a perfect calm and without any disturbing reaction. These things are the test of equality. It is easy to be calm and equal when things go well and people and circumstances are pleasant; it is when they are the opposite that the completeness of the calm, peace, equality can be tested, reinforced, made perfect."  - SRI AUROBINDO

  • The Soul of Man under Socialism

    Oscar Wilde

    Filosofie Wilde did not see kindness or altruism per se as a problem; what worried him was its misapplication in a way which leaves unaddressed the roots of the problem: "the altruistic virtues have really prevented the carrying out of this aim. Just as the worst slave-owners were those who were kind to their slaves, and so prevented the horror of the system being realised by those who suffered from it, and understood by those who contemplated it, so, in the present state of things in England, the people who do most harm are the people who try to do most good" while preserving the system.
