Download E-books Fundamentos de filosofía PDF

Con lucidez y claridad, el filósofo Bertrand Russell, Premio Nobel de Literatura de 1950 y una de las grandes mentes del siglo XX, expone su specific visión del mundo, desde los angeles condición humana hasta los angeles física.

Fundamentos de filosofía (1927) period una obra pensada para el gran público estadounidense que, sin embargo, despertó una aguerrida controversia en los círculos académicos. Su tesis clave afirma que los angeles humanidad es el instrumento mediante el cual adquirimos nuestro conocimiento del universo (o, según Gorgias, «el hombre es l. a. medida de todas las cosas»). De ahí, surgen varias cuestiones: ¿de qué maneras adquiere conocimiento el ser humano?, ¿es posible los angeles formulación de leyes universales?, ¿cómo podemos distinguir verdad y opinión? Todas las preguntas que plantea Russell abren las puertas al que es, al fin y al cabo, el más sugestivo de los interrogantes: ¿puede el ser humano llegar a conocerlo todo?

Reseñas:
«La claridad, seguridad e imparcialidad que [Russell] ha aplicado a los problemas lógicos, filosóficos y humanos no tienen rival.»
Albert Einstein

«Entre los pocos en quienes los angeles proposal se ha manifestado en los angeles propia carne y a quienes l. a. situación histórica de los angeles humanidad ha transformado de maestros en profetas está Bertrand Russell.»
Erich Fromm

By Harry G. Frankfurt

This fantastically written ebook via one of many world's best ethical philosophers argues that the most important to a fulfilled existence is to pursue wholeheartedly what one cares approximately, that love is the main authoritative kind of being concerned, and that the purest kind of love is, in a sophisticated approach, self-love.

crucial type of being concerned, Frankfurt writes, is love, a nonvoluntary, disinterested obstacle for the flourishing of what's enjoyed. Love is so very important simply because significant functional reasoning has to be grounded in ends that we don't search purely to achieve different ends, and since it truly is in loving that we turn into certain to ultimate ends wanted for his or her personal sakes.

Insofar as this can be precise, self-love is just a dedication to discovering which means in our lives.
