Die Jahre 1919 bis 1929 markieren eine Epoche unvergleichlicher geistiger Kreativität, in der Gedanken zum ersten Mal gedacht wurden, ohne die das Leben und Denken in unserer Gegenwart nicht dasselbe wäre. Die großen Philosophen Ludwig Wittgenstein, Walter Benjamin, Ernst Cassirer und Martin Heidegger prägten diese Epoche und ließen die deutsche Sprache ein letztes Mal vor der Katastrophe des Zweiten Weltkriegs zur Sprache des Geistes werden. Wolfram Eilenberger, Bestsellerautor, langjähriger Chefredakteur des »Philosophie Magazins« und der wohl begabteste und zurzeit auffälligste Vermittler von Geistesgeschichte im deutschsprachigen Raum, erweckt die Philosophie der Zwanziger Jahre und mit ihr ein ganzes Jahrzehnt zwischen Lebenslust und Wirtschaftskrise, Nachkrieg und aufkommendem Nationalsozialismus zum Leben. Der kometenhafte Aufstieg Martin Heideggers und dessen Liebe zu Hannah Arendt. Der taumelnde Walter Benjamin, dessen amour fou auf Capri mit einer lettischen Anarchistin ihn selber zum Revolutionär macht. Der Genius und Milliardärssohn Wittgenstein der, während er in Cambridge als Gott der Philosophie verehrt wird, in der oberösterreichischen Provinz vollkommen verarmt Grundschüler unterrichtet. Und schließlich Ernst Cassirer, der Jahre vor seiner Emigration in den bürgerlichen Vierteln Hamburgs am eigenen Leib den aufsteigenden Antisemitismus erfährt. In den Lebenswegen und dem revolutionären Denken dieser vier Ausnahmephilosophen sieht Wolfram Eilenberger den Ursprung unserer heutigen Welt begründet. Dank der großen Erzählkunst des Autors ist uns der Rückblick auf die Zwanziger Jahre zugleich Inspiration und Mahnung, aber in allererster Linie ein mitreißendes Lesevergnügen. »Dieses schön erzählte Buch schildert die Jahre zwischen 1919 und 1929, in denen Heidegger, Wittgenstein, Benjamin und Cassirer Weltbedeutung gewannen. Zusammen bilden sie eine erstaunliche geistige Konstellation, vier Lebensentwürfe und vier Antworten auf die Frage: Was ist der Mensch? Herausgekommen ist dabei das Sternbild der Philosophie in einem großen Augenblick im Schatten der Katastrophen davor und danach.« Rüdiger Safranski

What makes psychology a science? What is the logic underlying psychological research? In this groundbreaking book Zoltán Dienes introduces students to key issues in the philosophy of science and statistics that have a direct and vital bearing on the practice of research in psychology. The book is organised around the influential thinkers and conceptual debates which pervade psychological research and teaching but until now have not been made accessible to students. In a clear and fluid style, Dienes takes the reader on a compelling tour of the ideas of: - Popper - Kuhn& Lakatos - Neyman& Pearson - Bayes - Fisher& Royall Featuring examples drawn from extensive teaching experience to ground the ideas firmly in psychological science, the book is an ideal companion to courses and modules in psychological research methods and also to those covering conceptual and historical issues.

The Commitments

Author: Roddy Doyle
Publisher: Vintage

Year: 2013-02-06
In the first volume of the Barrytown Trilogy, Roddy Doyle, winner of the Booker Prize for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, introduces The Commitments, a group of fame-starved, working-class Irish youths with a paradoxical passion for the music of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding and a mission—to bring Soul to Dublin. Doyle writes about the band with a fan's enthusiasm and about Dublin with a native's cheerful knowingness. His book captures all the shadings of the rock experience: ambition, greed, and egotism—ans the redeeming, exhilarating joy of making music. The Commitments is one of the most engaging and believable novels about rock'n'roll ever written, a book whose brashness and originality have won it mainstream acclaim and underground cachet.

Religion for Atheists

Religion for Atheists

Author: Alain De Botton
Publisher: Signal
ISBN: 0771025998
Pages: 336
Year: 2012-03-06
From the author of The Architecture of Happiness, a deeply moving meditation on how we can still benefit, without believing, from the wisdom, the beauty, and the consolatory power that religion has to offer. Alain de Botton was brought up in a committedly atheistic household, and though he was powerfully swayed by his parents' views, he underwent, in his mid-twenties, a crisis of faithlessness. His feelings of doubt about atheism had their origins in listening to Bach's cantatas, were further developed in the presence of certain Bellini Madonnas, and became overwhelming with an introduction to Zen architecture. However, it was not until his father's death -- buried under a Hebrew headstone in a Jewish cemetery because he had intriguingly omitted to make more secular arrangements -- that Alain began to face the full degree of his ambivalence regarding the views of religion that he had dutifully accepted. Why are we presented with the curious choice between either committing to peculiar concepts about immaterial deities or letting go entirely of a host of consoling, subtle and effective rituals and practices for which there is no equivalent in secular society? Why do we bristle at the mention of the word "morality"? Flee from the idea that art should be uplifting, or have an ethical purpose? Why don't we build temples? What mechanisms do we have for expressing gratitude? The challenge that de Botton addresses in his book: how to separate ideas and practices from the religious institutions that have laid claim to them. In Religion for Atheists is an argument to free our soul-related needs from the particular influence of religions, even if it is, paradoxically, the study of religion that will allow us to rediscover and rearticulate those needs.

At the Existentialist Café

Author: Sarah Bakewell
Publisher: Knopf Canada
ISBN: 0345810945
Pages: 352
Year: 2016-03-01
Great philosophy meets powerful biography in this entertaining and immensely readable portrait of mid-20th century Paris and the fascinating characters of Sartre, de Beauvoir, Camus, and their circle, who loved and hated, drank and debated with each other--and forever changed the way we think about thinking. At the Existentialist Café is a thrilling look at the famous group of post-war thinkers who became known as the Existentialists: Sartre, de Beauvoir, Camus, Heidegger, and their circle. Starting with Paris after the devastation of the Second World War, Sarah Bakewell (winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for her previous book) takes us inside the passionate debates and equally passionate lives of these brilliant, if flawed, characters. Here is a wonderful, vibrant look at the social, artistic and political currents that shaped the existentialist movement--a mode of thinking and being that, as Bakewell vividly shows, deeply affects us today. Never has the story of this influential group, and especially that of the legendary relationship between Sartre and de Beauvoir, been told with such verve and sweep, weaving personal life with social upheaval and the universal quest for understanding. From the Hardcover edition.

Goethe und der liebe Gott.

Author: Thomas O. H. Kaiser
Publisher: BoD – Books on Demand

Year: 2018-09-17
In dem Buch "Goethe und der liebe Gott" geht es um das "Verhältnis des Johann Wolfgang von Goethe zum Christentum, zur Kirche und zur Religion" (Untertitel). Oft wurde in der Goethe-Forschung behauptet, dass Goethe ein "Heide" gewesen sei. Der Autor ist anderer Meinung: Goethe war ein überzeugter Protestant, der als Kind evangelisch-lutherisch getauft wurde, sich konfirmieren ließ, kirchlich heiratete und schließlich evangelisch beerdigt wurde. Zeit seines Lebens hat sich Goethe mit Religion beschäftigt, ohne jedoch ein systematisches Lehrgebäude hinterlassen zu haben. Allerdings ist sein gesamtes Werk von theologischen und religionsphilosophischen Gedanken durchzogen. In ihm wird erkennbar, dass der bibelfeste Dichterfürst aus Weimar unorthodox, kritisch und auch zweifelnd im Umgang mit Religion war - Eigenschaften, die zum evangelischen Glauben dazugehören.

Peter Baker's authoritative history of the Obama presidency is the first complete account that will stand the test of time.

With vivid color photographs by New York Times photographers and others of the events, major and minor, public and behind-the scenes, that defined Barack Obama's eight years in office, Obama: The Call of History is a portrait in full of America's first African-American president against the background of these tumultuous times.

"I am not a Communist. I am not a Nazi. I am Max Heller." In the final days of the Third Reich, with the historic city of Dresden on the brink of destruction, terrifying rumors spread about the Fright Man, a demonic killer who exploited the cover of a nighttime air raid siren to mutilate and kill a young nurse. Just as seasoned detective Max Heller begins investigating, the Fright Man kills again... The investigation seems hopeless. Desperate refugees flood the streets, all of Heller's resources are depleted, and his new boss is a ruthless SS officer. And like so many others, Heller and his wife, Karin, survive on meager rations while fearing for the lives of their sons at the front. But as tensions mount and enemy firebombs decimate the city, dangerous new clues come to light--and the determined Heller pursues a violent and twisting path to unmask a monster.
