Posthumous people : Vienna at the turning point by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

28 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedrich Nietzsche imagined himself belonging to a society of visionaries, thinkers, architects, poets, musicians, and artists running ahead of the mainstream. They were condemned to be misunderstood or ignored in the present, but their work would become significant in the future. To them he addressed the aphorism from which Massimo Cacciari's book takes its name, saying "It is only after death that we will enter our life and come alive, oh, very much alive, we posthumous people!" Cacciari isolates Vienna as the European capital of posthumous people at a crucial turning point in Western thinking, as the nineteenth century ended. There he finds Ludwig Wittgenstein, together with Peter Altenberg, Robert Walser, Lou Andreas-Salome, Adolf Loos, Martin Buber, Egon Schiele, Karl Kraus, Gustav Klimt, and many others. Cacciari treats this extraordinarily rich concentration of activity as the hub upon which European culture wheeled into the twentieth century. He reaches directly to the intellectual content in each of the various figures he discusses

The necessary angel by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

50 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cacciari elabora una sua lettura filosofico-teologica dell'Angelo attraversando i testi e le immagini, a partire dall'antichità giudaico-cristiana o pagana o iranica sino a Klee o a Rilke o alla riflessione di Henry Corbin. E appare evidente come questa sua ricerca si connetta anche ai suoi lavori precedenti, e in particolare a Icone della Legge. Qui, sempre con riferimento a Benjamin e a Rosenzweig, torna a porsi il problema della rappresentazione e l'Angelo aiuta a configurarlo come un vero dramma gnoseologico che si svolge sulla soglia di quello che Corbin ha definito il mundus imaginalis. E intanto l'attenzione si fissa sulla fisiognomica degli <<ultimi, grandi incontri>> con l'Angelo. Ora gli Angeli diventano simili a <<dèi dell'istante>>, <<lampeggiano e scompaiono>>. Ormai sottratti a ogni stabile gerarchia, sedotti e quasi irretiti dall'umano, questi ultimi Angeli serbano in sé un riso, una disperazione e una paradossale libertà che ci sono più che mai essenziali

Dell'inizio by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Come già dichiara il titolo, Cacciari intende volgere lo sguardo a quel "cominciamento" che è il problema del pensiero filosofico. A questa inattualità nel porre il problema di sempre della filosofia corrisponde una novità perentoria nella articolazione della forma, che abbraccia i tre modi della scrittura filosofica: il dialogo (l'ironia, la ricerca), il trattato (la sistematicità), il parergon (la frammentazione aforistica). Da questi tratti apparirà evidente una voluta arcaicità dell'architetura formale, che implica una vis polemica contro ogni discorso filosofico rassegnato all'inerzia. Qui, al contrario, si riconosce che il pensiero filosofico non può che riproporsi le domande del Parmenide platonico

Della cosa ultima by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in Italian and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quale cosa attinge, "in ultimo", l'anima dopo essersi aperta, attraverso l'angoscia, alla ricerca di sé? E' questo l'interrogativo che sottende l'articolarsi di questo saggio. Tre voci in dialogo fra loro e con i "Maggiori Loro", da Platone a Husserl, cercano di rispondere a tale domanda, ognuna seguendo il proprio "demone custode": la voce portatrice di un radicale scetticismo dell'Intelletto, la voce che incarna l'atto di fede in lotta contro se stesso e quella dell'Autore, che si rivolge agli amici attraverso due lunghe serie di lettere, riprendendo e sviluppando le idee della sua più importante opera teoretica, "Dell'inizio". L'attenzione di Cacciari torna a volgersi a quel cominciamento che è il "problema" filosofico fondamentale

Arte, tragedia, tecnica by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in Italian and Spanish and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elevar la técnica a la categoría de problema filosófico no ha sido un acontecimiento sin importancia en el pensamiento occidental contemporáneo. El rechazo de la "moderna civilización tecnológica" -sobre todo en el contexto del pensamiento alemán de los últimos ciento cincuenta años, pero no sólo en él- en oposición a valores como la Cultura, la Vida (en particular la vida contemplativa como enfrentada a la vida activa, pero también la vida del espíritu en tanto espacio de la libertad y la autorrealización como enfrentada a la mera vida de las necesidades), el Arte o el Espíritu ha sido un gesto tan extendido en sus diversas aristas y versiones como significativo en su carácter de síntoma de una encrucijada epocal. Estos ensayos se inscriben en el debate sobre la técnica en el siglo XX y en particular, su vínculo con el arte, poniéndola en relación con las reflexiones de los pensadores griegos sobre la "techné"
