Morals and politics by Vittorio Hösle( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this ambitious work Hosle attempts no less than an outline of a political ethics for the twenty-first century. He raises the question of the relationship between morals and politics and proposes a relatively complex answer to it. This answer involves a search for a synthesis between the classical European conviction that political philosophy must be based on ethics and the more modern notion that ethical arguments themselves have a political function. Hosle's goal is to create a concrete political ethics for the situation in which humanity finds itself today."--Jacket

Eric Rohmer : filmmaker and philosopher by Vittorio Hösle( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rohmer is one of the most popular French directors of the second half of the 20th century. One of the members of the famous Nouvelle Vague that reconstituted French cinema based on the theoretical principles articulated in the Cahiers du Cinema, he was fired when as a conservative Catholic he opposed its turn toward politicization. Like some of his colleagues, Rohmer is extremely interested in both the history and the philosophy of film. Brother of the noted French philosopher Rene Scherer, he begins his career as a film critic. In his films, deep moral conflicts as well as the search for one's own identity emerge from the intricacies of seemingly superficial everyday life interactions, particularly between a man and a woman. Hosle's book puts Rohmer in the context of a long French tradition of reflected eroticism, with Marivaux, Musset, Stendhal, and Jean Renoir as crucial figures, and shows how Rohmer both recognizes the inner logic of eroticism and subjects it to moral demands that he inherits from his Catholic background. For Rohmer, the tension between the two can usually only be solved by some unexpected event that can be interpreted as an equivalent of grace
Vico's New science of the intersubjective world by Vittorio Hösle( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among the classics of the history of philosophy, the Scienza nuova (New Science) by Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) was largely neglected and generally misunderstood during the author's lifetime. From the nineteenth century onwards Vico's views found a wider audience, and today his influence is widespread in the humanities and social sciences. The New Science is often taught in courses at colleges and universities, both in philosophy and Italian departments and in general humanities courses. Despite the excellent English translations of this enigmatic book and numerous studies in English of Vico, many sections of the work remain challenging to the modern reader. Vico's New Science of the Intersubjective World offers both an in-depth analysis of all the important ideas of the book as well as an evaluation of their contribution to our present understanding of the social world. In the first chapter, Vittorio Hosle examines Vico's life, sources, and writings. The second and third chapters discuss the concerns and problems of the Scienza nuova. The fourth chapter traces the broader history of Vico's reception. Hosle facilitates the understanding of many passages in the work as well as the overarching structure of its claims, which are often dispersed over many sections. Hosle reformulates Vico's vision in such a way that it is not only of historical interest but may inspire ongoing debates about the nature of the humanities and social sciences as well as many other issues on which Vico sheds light, from the relation of poetry and poetics to the development of law. This book will prepare students and scholars for a precise study of the Scienza nuova, equipping them with the necessary categories and context and familiarizing them with the most important problems in the critical debate on Vico's philosophy. "Vico's New Science of the Intersubjective World delivers a comprehensive treatment of Vico, which is neither too detailed and technical nor too superficial. The book gives a clear picture of what Vico wanted to say, where he might have been wrong or become obsolete, and what his true achievements are for which he still deserves praise."--Peter Konig, University of Heidelberg"--
Dimensions of goodness by Vittorio Hösle( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Development, and the American legal scholars Steven D. Smith and Mary Ellen O'Connell examine the place of religion in the American constitution and the power of international law in limiting violence respectively. Finally, the last section consists of a chapter by the well-known Chinese intellectual Wang Hui on Lu Xun's struggle to find a middle way between respect of one's own tradition and the demands of globalization.There is probably no other volume in which so many different disciplines come together to try to find a convergence of perspectives on basic moral issues. The book will be invaluable to those who believe that goodness is the focal point of most academic disciplines and that academia can find a stronger point of unity in a common reflection on what goodness in various areas means
