Martin Heidegger : between good and evil by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

96 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the century's greatest philosophers, without whom there would be no Sartre, no Foucault, no Frankfurt School, Martin Heidegger was also a man of great failures and flaws, a Faustus who made a pact with the devil of his time, Adolf Hitler. The story of Heidegger's life and philosophy, a quintessentially German story in which good and evil, brilliance and blindness are inextricably entwined and the passions and disasters of a whole century come into play, is told in this biography. Heidegger grew up in Catholic Germany where, for a chance at pursuing a life of learning, he pledged himself to the priesthood. Soon he turned apostate and sought a university position, which set him on the path to becoming the star of German philosophy in the 1920s. Rudiger Safranski chronicles Heidegger's rise along with the thought he honed on the way, with its debt to Heraclitus, Plato, and Kant, and its tragic susceptibility to the conservatism that emerged out of the nightmare of Germany's loss in World War I.A chronicle of ideas and of personal commitments and betrayals, Safranski's biography combines clear accounts of the philosophy that won Heidegger eternal renown with the fascinating details of the loves and lapses that tripped up this powerful intellectual. Martin Heidegger: Between Good and Evil does not shy away from full coverage of Heidegger's shameful transformation into a propagandist for the National Socialist regime; nor does it allow this aspect of his career to obscure his accomplishments
Nietzsche : a philosophical biography by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 1,556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No other modern philosopher has proved as influential as Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1990) & none is as poorly understood. In the first major biography in decades, Rudiger Safranski re-creates the anguished life of Nietzsche while simultaneously assessing the philosophical implications of his morality, religion, & art. Plagued by illness & profoundly shaped by his tortured sexuality, Nietzsche was a man of masks & mood swings, a thinker who called himself "dynamite" yet labored under the weight of compulsive self-consciousness. Posing apt questions & at time offering unorthodox interpretations of Nietzsche's philosophical writings, Safranski offers a brilliant portrait of a historical figure in a work that is as groundbreaking as it will be long-lasting

40 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By captivating the intellectual life of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Europe, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe put into language the anxieties and ambitions of a civilization on the cusp of modernity. Indeed, Goethe's unparalleled literary output would come to define the Romantic age. Safranski surveys Goethe's wide-ranging genius, and crafts a portrait of Goethe's inner life that illuminates both his written work and the turmoil and triumphs of his era

How much globalization can we bear? by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

55 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this compelling new book, the philosopher Rudiger Safranski grapples with the pressing problems of the global age: 'Big Brother' states, terrorism, international security and the seeming impossibility of 'world' peace. He suggests that the era of globalization should not be thought of as that epoch in world history in which all human beings will see themselves in the same, indistinct situation. There will always be, Safranski argues, some need for understanding one's own situation by drawing boundaries and conceptualizing 'otherness' and individuality."--Jacket

Goethe und Schiller : Geschichte einer Freundschaft by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

27 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ihre Freundschaft ist eine Sternstunde des deutschen Geistes: Friedrich Schiller bringt seine Dramen mit Goethes Hilfe auf die Bühne. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe erlebt durch Schiller in Weimar seine zweite Jugend. Dennoch ist ihre gemeinsame Geschichte nicht frei von Konflikten: etwa Schillers Neid auf den bewunderten Goethe oder Goethes Angst vor dem Aufstieg Schillers. Trotz aller Gegensätze lernte Schiller in der Freundschaft, "dass es dem Vortrefflichen gegenüber keine Freiheit gibt als die Liebe". Und jeder der beiden sagte vom anderen: er sei ihm der wichtigste Mensch gewesen. Rüdiger Safranskis Buch ist die spannend erzählte Biographie dieser für die Dichtung in Deutschland so wichtigen Begegnung

Romanticism : a German affair by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The renowned scholar Rüdiger Safranski's Romanticism: A German Affair both offers an accessible overview of Romanticism and, more critically, traces its lasting influence, for better and for ill, on German culture. Safranski begins with the eighteenthcentury Sturm und Drang movement, which would sow the seeds for Romanticism in Germany. While Romanticism was a broad artistic, literary, and intellectual movement, German thinkers were especially concerned with its strong philosophical-metaphysical and religious dimension. Safranski follows this spirit in its afterlife in the work of Heinrich Heine, Richard Wagner, Friedrich Nietzsche, Thomas Mann, and through the later artistic upheavals of the twentieth century. He concludes by carefully considering Romanticism's possible influence in the rise of National Socialism and the student revolt of 1968.--

Conosciuto soprattutto per il concetto del <<superuomo>> e della <<morte di Dio>>, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844'1900) fu un vero e proprio vulcano nel campo del pensiero filosofico. Demolì valori faticosamente dedotti e indagati, quali i concetti di <<essere>>, <<natura>> e <<Dio>>, per dare centralità alla vita intesa come potenza creatrice, <<volontà di potenza>>. Il suo pensiero portò alla luce un orizzonte immenso, esaltante e vertiginoso, che si apriva di fronte alle verità possibili, a una coscienza di sé e del mondo strappata finalmente alla morsa del determinismo e restituita alla sua abissale libertà, la libertà dell'artista. <<Voglio essere il poeta della mia vita>>, annunciava Nietzsche giovanissimo quando, nel 1858, a soli quattordici anni, si cimentò in uno schizzo autobiografico ' il primo di nove ' preannunciando quella avventura di pensiero, bruciante e appassionata, che sarebbe stata la sua opera. Ripercorrendo i sentieri impervi di questo densissimo e affascinante cammino spirituale? dalle opere adolescenziali al periodo dionisiaco, dai libri della maturità all'esplosione della follia a Torino ' Rüdiger Safranski ricostruisce le mille sfaccettature del pensiero nietzschiano, regalandoci una splendida biografia intellettuale di quel genio che tanto nutrì e influenzò le ideologie del Novecento

Un maestro de Alemania : Martin Heidegger y su tiempo by Rüdiger Safranski( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hoy en día nadie pone en cuestión que Martin Heidegger es el filósofo más influyente del siglo XX. Pero también es una llaga en la filosofía alemana. Así, el 'caso Heidegger', las controversias en torno a su persona, y más concretamente en torno a su actitud política, han producido grietas en el mundo filósofico, y han impedido que su obra sea leída sin prejuicios, valorando lo que realmente tiene de importante
