Philosophie der Kultur- und Wissensformen - Ernst Cassirer by Tobias Endres, Pellegrino Favuzzi, Timo Klattenhoff

By Tobias Endres, Pellegrino Favuzzi, Timo Klattenhoff

Das Potenzial der Philosophie Ernst Cassirers ist keinesfalls erschopft, sondern vielmehr in systematischer, transdisziplinarer und gesellschaftlich relevanter Perspektive anschlussfahig, um Fragestellungen der Gegenwartsphilosophie und der Wissenschaften zu begegnen. Die Cassirer-Rezeption befindet sich in dieser Hinsicht an der Schwelle des Eintritts in eine neue part, die im Lichte eines 'Neulesens' sowie einer zunehmend globalen Vernetzung betrachtet werden kann. Von der Wissensforschung und Wahrnehmungstheorie uber neue Gebiete symbolischer Formung wie movie, Geld und Virtualitat bis zum spannungsreichen Verhaltnis zwischen Demokratie und Mythos: Die Beitrage des Bandes verstehen sich als Aktualisierung von Cassirers Philosophie der Kultur- und Wissensformen im 21. Jahrhundert.

Der islamische Faschismus by Hamed Abdel-Samad

By Hamed Abdel-Samad

Der Islamismus entstand parallel zum italienischen Faschismus und zum Nationalsozialismus. Sein faschistoi­des Gedankengut allerdings reicht viel weiter zurück – es ist bereits im Ur-Islam angelegt. Hamed Abdel-Samad schlägt in seiner examine einen Bogen von den Ursprüngen des Islam bis hin zur Gegenwart. Die Grundzüge des Faschismus scheinen überall durch; in der Organisationsstruktur ebenso wie in der faith, die stets über dem Menschen steht. Ein wichtiges Buch, dessen Thesen Hamed Abdel-Samad eine Todes-Fatwa einbrachten. Allein das entlarvt den Islamismus.
