The princess and the philosopher : letters of Elisabeth of the Palatine to René Descartes by Andrea Nye( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a number of years, those interested in recovering women's thought have known about Princess Elisabeth, a seventeenth-century correspondent, friend, and an acute, persistent critic of Descartes's philosophy. Her questions provoked the philosopher to think more seriously about ethics and the passions, as Elisabeth found his answer--that an all-powerful God can do anything--extremely unsatisfactory. Up to now, only a few of her letters have found their way into print. This volume includes translations of all of Elisabeth's extant letters to Descartes, as well as of other materials relevant to understanding her philosophical perspective and her life. Andrea Nye analyzes the correspondence between Elisabeth and Descartes to support the thesis that Elisabeth developed and defended a worldly philosophy of life in opposition to the unworldly rules Descartes offered for living a tranquil and happy life. Nye has supplemented the translations with a running commentary on the historical, biographical, and intellectual context of the letters

Der Briefwechsel mit Elisabeth von der Pfalz : Französisch - Deutsch by René Descartes( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in German and French and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erste vollständige deutsche Übersetzung des berühmten Briefwechsels zwischen Descartes und Elisabeth von der Pfalz aus den Jahren 1643 bis 1649. Der Briefwechsel zwischen René Descartes (1596–1650) und Elisabeth von der Pfalz (1618–1680) gehört zu den eindrücklichsten philosophischen Dokumenten der Frühen Neuzeit. Die rund 60 erhaltenen Briefe, welche die junge Prinzessin und der berühmte französische Philosoph von Mai 1643 bis Dezember 1649 austauschen, zeigen auf eng­stem Raum die wissenschaftlichen Auseinandersetzungen und gedanklichen Umbrüche im Europa des 17. Jahrhunderts. In Elisabeth von der Pfalz findet Descartes eine äußerst gelehrte Briefpartnerin. Ihre scharfsinnigen und kritischen Fragen spornen ihn an, seine philosophischen Positionen zu vertiefen und in neue Wissensgebiete vorzustoßen. So gibt er nicht nur zu, einige Aspekte seiner Philosophie bisher ungenügend erklärt zu haben, sondern legt sie in den Briefen zum ersten Mal detailliert dar: die Vereinigung von Geist und Körper, die Natur der Leidenschaften sowie die Bestimmung des höchsten Gutes oder der gerechten Regentschaft. Angeregt durch den Wissensdrang der Prinzessin liefert Descartes eigene Interpretationen wichtiger philosophischer Texte wie Senecas Über das glückliche Leben und Machiavellis Der Fürst. Die Edition enthält erstmals eine vollständige deutsche Übersetzung der Korrespondenz zwischen Descartes und Elisabeth. Sie wird um eine Auswahl philosophisch relevanter Briefe erweitert, die Descartes mit Königin Christina von Schweden (1626–1689) und mit seinem Freund, dem französischen Diplomaten Pierre Chanut (1601–1662), wechselt

Peut-on être philosophe dans n'importe quelle société et dans n'importe quelle situation ? Ou, plus précisément, peut-on philosopher quand on est l'homme le plus riche de son temps ? Peut-on philosopher quand on est pris dans les obligations de la vie sociale ? Ces interrogations sont peut-être les avatars d'une question plus fondamentale, celle du rapport de la philosophie au pouvoir politique - question qui ne pouvait manquer de passionner Sénèque, philosophe stoïcien, homme fabuleusement riche et précepteur de l'empereur Néron

The correspondence between Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia and René Descartes by Elisabeth( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between the years 1643 and 1649, Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia (1618 80) and Rene; Descartes (1596 1650) exchanged fifty-eight letters thirty-two from Descartes and twenty-six from Elisabeth. Their correspondence contains the only known extant philosophical writings by Elisabeth, revealing her mastery of metaphysics, analytic geometry, and moral philosophy, as well as her keen interest in natural philosophy. The letters are essential reading for anyone interested in Descartes s philosophy, in particular his account of the human being as a union of mind and body, as well as his ethics. They also provide a unique insight into the character of their authors and the way ideas develop through intellectual collaboration. Philosophers have long been familiar with Descartes s side of the correspondence. Now Elisabeth s letters never before available in translation in their entirety emerge this volume, adding much-needed context and depth both to Descartes s ideas and the legacy of the princess. Lisa Shapiro s annotated edition which also includes Elisabeth s correspondence with the Quakers William Penn and Robert Barclay will be heralded by students of philosophy, feminist theorists, and historians of the early modern period"--Publisher description
