Die 100 wichtigsten philosophischen Argumente by Steven Barbone( )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Wer sich mit Philosophie befasst, wird vor allem mit einem konfrontiert: mit Argumenten. Wie in keiner anderen Wissenschaft werden Thesen und Positionen strikt mit logischen Argumenten belegt und widerlegt. Es gehört daher für jeden (angehenden) Philosophen zu den Kernkompetenzen, Argumente klar und deutlich zu formulieren, sie auf Gültigkeit hin zu überprüfen und Schwachstellen in Argumentationen ausfindig zu machen. Gleichsam gibt es innerhalb der verschiedenen philosophischen Disziplinen zahlreiche Argumente, die als Standardargumente gelten. Dieses Buch fasst die 100 wichtigsten, gegliedert nach philosophischen Disziplinen, zusammen. Sie werden kurz und prägnant in ihrer typischen Form als Prämissen und Konklusion dargestellt. Einführende Hinweise ermöglichen eine Einordnung des Arguments in den Kontext der Debatte

"Philosophy has a history of expanding wisdom to include more worldly affairs. Continuing this tradition, College Sex--Philosophy for Everyone investigates a broad array of philosophical and moral issues relating to the sexual practices of students. Within the unique social setting of college comes a varied assortment of sexual relations and experiments, ranging from the mutually respectful, to the inebriated, meaningless, and the degrading. So lay back and ponder; " "Written with insight and humor, the essays shed light on sexual relations in college and examine a range of ethical issues, including: dating, cheating, courtship, homosexual experimentation, and drug and alcohol use, within the college setting."-P.
