Download Phänomenologie des Hörens: Eine Untersuchung im Ausgang von by David Espinet PDF

By David Espinet

David Espinet nimmt die Frage nach der Rehabilitierung des Hörens im Kontext philosophischer Theoriebildung auf. Entgegen einer vielfach visualistisch geprägten, hörvergessenen Erkenntnistradition erweist sich für Heideggers Denken das auditive Erfahrungsmuster als ebenso zentral. Im Hören klingt auf besondere Weise jene vorintentionale Offenheit an, die das, was once zu denken gibt, zulässt. Hören und Denken prägen sich jeweils im differenzierten Wechselspiel aus - als hörendes Denken, das offen ist für unerwarteten, noch stillen Sinn; und als denkendes Hören, das in seiner Leiblichkeit über den verständlichen Sinn hinaus auch Unverständliches, mithin Fremdes oder Anderes, vernimmt.

Fleshing out Enlightenment considering within the works of Denis Diderot, Joseph Joubert, Pierre de Marivaux, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Jean-Siméon Chardin, this e-book explores idleness in all its guises, and illustrates that laziness existed, no longer as a vice of the wretched, yet as an exemplar of modernity and a resistance to ideals approximately advantage and utility.

Whether within the dawdlings of Marivaux's journalist who not on time and procrastinated or within the matters of Chardin's work who overjoyed in suspended, playful time, Pierre Saint-Amand indicates how eighteenth-century works supplied a robust argument for laziness. Rousseau deserted his earlier security of work to pursue reverie and botanical walks, Diderot emphasised a parasitic technique of resisting paintings that allows you to free up time, and Joubert's little-known posthumous Notebooks extensively hostile the principal philosophy of the Enlightenment in a quest to infinitely delay work.

Unsettling the obdurate view of the eighteenth century as an age of frenetic industriousness and exertions, The Pursuit of Laziness plumbs the texts and pictures of the time and uncovers planned yearnings for slowness and recreation.
