Download E-books Crepuscolo di un idolo. Smantellare le favole freudiane PDF

By Michel Onfray

Michel Onfray, coerente con sé stesso, prende di mira in questo libro una religione che, ancor più dei monoteismi del suo Trattato di ateologia, sembra dover ancora avere vita lunga e felice. Questa religione è l. a. psicoanalisi, e più in particolare il freudismo. L’idea di Onfray è semplice e radicale: Freud ha tentato di costruire una scienza e non vi è riuscito; ha voluto provare che l’inconscio ha le sue leggi, l. a. sua logica intrinseca, può essere studiato mediante protocolli che riteneva scientifici, e tuttavia ha mentito, in step with potersi fregiare degli emblemi della scientificità. Tutto ciò merita una controinchiesta.

Con il rigore e l. a. pazienza di un archivista, Onfray riprende daccapo in mano i testi sacri della nuova Chiesa. E senza timore dello stigma che si sarebbe senz’altro procurato, li mette a confronto con le testimonianze e ne esamina le contraddizioni. Il bilancio è terribile: los angeles psicoanalisi è un’appendice della psicologia, della letteratura, della filosofia, ma non può assolutamente aspirare allo statuto di scienza «dura».

Download E-books La Republique PDF

Résumé de l. a. République de Platon : los angeles République est le livre le plus célèbre et le plus influent de l. a. philosophie de Platon. Mais en soi, los angeles République n’existe pas, ni en théorie ni en pratique à son époque. Elle est donc inventée, construite par l’architecte Socrate. Mais le thème majeur de ce discussion est celui de la justice ou : remark organiser los angeles cité ? Le livre est organisé en 10 livres distincts, durant lesquels Platon présente les différents points de sa cité idéale, de l. a. position des philosophes dans l. a. cité à l. a. notion de los angeles subjectivité en passant par l’éducation des enfants. Dans le Livre I, Socrate donne deux définitions distinctes de l. a. justice. l. a. première est fournie par Polémarque, qui suggère que los angeles justice consiste à “faire du bien à vos amis et causer des dommages à vos ennemis.” Cette définition, qui est une traduction de los angeles morale conventionnelle, est prise en considération. Cependant, très vite, ses défauts apparaissent clairement : remark peut-on savoir qui est un ami et qui est un ennemi ? Les amis ne sont-ils pas capables de faire du mal ? Et qu’est-ce que faire du bien ? Ici affleure déjà l’idée qu’une définition doit reposer sur des notions solides : il faut donc remonter à l’essence du suggestion et non se contenter de fausses apparences. Une deuxième définition, donnée par Thrasymaque, est los angeles suivante : «La justice est l’obéissance à l’intérêt du plus fort». Mais selon Socrate, l. a. justice est bonne à los angeles fois dans ses moyens et dans sa fin et ne peut donc exiger los angeles soumission en tant que moyen. Selon Socrate, los angeles justice est “l’excellence de l’âme”. Socrate sait cependant qu’il a été trop imprecise et qu’il devra se faire plus précis. Le livre I se termine par une autre query. los angeles vie juste est-elle plus gratifiante que los angeles vie injuste? Même si le most advantageous livre n’a pas avancé de manière déterminante dans los angeles définition de los angeles justice, il a réussi néanmoins à poser le cadre et l. a. méthode utilisée.
