To philosophize is then at once to learn how to live and to know how to die Because of the uncertainty of temporal existence life is always an experiment Only transcendence can make this questionable life good, the world beautiful, and existence itself a fulfilment.If to philosophize is to learn how to die, then we must learn how to die in order to lead a good life.

I urge philosophy beginners to dismiss the book s title as it can only be perceived as a coherent introduction to philosophy after one either already has an introspective grip of an existential worldview or is somewhat knowledgeable about philosophy in general main topics, not necessarily different perspectives in order to be able to tell what the similiraties and differences of the authors focuses are, especially when considering existentialism and its predecessors It does not bother with descr [...]

Jaspers has this idea, and that idea is that ideas do matter, but they re not everything He s not interested in debates about how we can know what s really true or if there actually is a real world out there he s interested in how we come to decide what to do here and now Since the early 1950s, his work has provided a reference point both for cultural relativists and oppositional scholars, but his ideal audience seems to be concerned individuals who are dissatisfied with the current state of af [...]

I believe this book represents an accurate understanding of philosophy as a discipline Jaspers recognises that irrespective of their content as fixed ideas, the great works of philosophy embody an ineffable thread of truth that has to be continually reinterpreted by successive readers, in the same way that a musical masterpiece or Shakespeare s plays must be reinterpreted in performance This derives from their participation in a fundamental universal truth about the human condition.

No matter your personal philosophical beliefs, this book will open your eyes and give you a new perspective on philosophy Love this book.

I was going for a two star rating, but both appendices were actually interesting to read although biased, especially the second one and encouraged me to add the third star I have to state that the only section that felt remotely like a proper introduction to philosophy was the second appendix, On Reading Philosophy As it is, I really wouldn t recommend this work as an introduction to the topic of philosophy and free thinking.Being an atheist myself, I expected this book to be reasonably unbiased [...]


Armando Garcia

This book is not an introduction to the basic themes and authors of philosophy but rather a re definition of philosophy from an existential perspective Jaspers examines the sources and motivations for philosophizing as the human response to the problems of existence The ideas he presents presuppose an understanding basic existential works of Kant, Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Husserl, and Sartre, which otherwise makes his propositions difficult to understand He extensively discusses humankind s histo [...]

J crirai plus ult rieurement, mais mon impression chaud est la suivante Ce que je n ai pas saisi et qui est central au livre est le lien entre libert et transcendance qui semble vidente pour Jaspers, qui ne l est pas pour moi.Mais ce livre est magnifique, tr s profond L id e que la philosophie se trouve dans le domaine du non savoir me fait r fl chir depuis que je l ai lu et m int resse beaucoup.Le chapitre sur la relation sujet objet et sur l englobant sont int ressants aussi.

A bit too much theology Good insight we have to read every book at first as if everything in it is true.


Alex Obrigewitsch

An alright introduction into philosophy albeit biased by being Jasper s understanding of philosophy.And this is where I might hesitate to hand this to someone new to philosophy Overall Jaspers lays out a clear way, but it leads to some potential pitfalls Especially the appended section On Reading Philosophy This section is so very biased in its descriptions of the history of philosophy that it hurts.

T ko srozumiteln text alespo pro mne Nejlep na knize je z ejm jej dodatek, kter se jist bohu hodit student m filosofie.


Anthony

Highly recommended Less as an overview of Philosophy and as one of many possible starting points for thinking about important questions and how some others have addressed them.


Barış Özgür

en iyisi de il ama derli toplu bir a l konu mas olarak okunabilir.


Michal Kraft
