Download E-books Freiheit und Prädetermination unter dem Auspiz der prästabilierten Harmonie: Leibniz und Fichte in der Perspektive (Fichte-Studien Studien-Supplementa 21) (Fichte-Studien-Supplementa) (German Edition) PDF

Dieses Werk stellt das Denken zweier Geistesgrossen, Leibnizens und Fichtes sich gegenuber und vergleicht es. Fichte sieht in Leibniz einen Vorlaufer und erwahnt ihn mit liebevoller Bewunderung. Fichtes Wissenschaftslehre von 1801/02 wird Leibnizens "Monadologie" aufgreifen und Leibnizens Gedanken einer prastabilierten Harmonie. Beide Philosophen verstehen sich als Freiheitsapostel, wobei bei Leibniz Gott eine genaue proposal jedes Individuums hat, die Freiheit ein mentaler Akt ist, bei Fichte jedes Individuum ein je bestimmtes Soll hat, das es, Freiheit verwirklichend, im Leben zu erfullen gilt. Fichte erkennt in Leibniz einen Vorlaufer der eigenen Transzendentalphilosophie. Ein Unterschied zwischen den beiden Denkern besteht darin, dass Leibniz stets die Individualitat im Auge hat, wo Fichte vom reinen Vernunftwesen ausgeht, dessen individuelle Pathologien ihn nicht interessieren. Beide Philosophen supponieren, dass die Welt ein Ende habe, Leibniz, auf dass das Weltgericht stattfinden konne, Fichte, auf dass in einer neuen Welt nur noch die sittlichen Individuen wiedergeboren werden. Der vorliegende textual content versucht auch, den Bogen zu schlagen von der philosophischen culture des Abendlandes, und insbesondere von Leibniz, Kant und Fichte zu einer Gotteslehre auf Grund der modernen Physik. Die hochenergetische Urmasse wird gefasst als psychophysische Energeia, die sich - im Leibnizschen Sinne Wissen, Macht und Wollen - aus dem Nichts kontrahiert hat und nun ins All explodiert. In der Kontraktion aus dem ursprunglich Verwobenen hat das Absolute sich vom Nichts, das Gute sich vom Bosen geschieden, entsteht das Ubel als privatio boni.
