Alfons Reckermann's Den Anfang denken: Bände I-III (Philosophische Bibliothek PDF

By Alfons Reckermann

Dieses dreibändige Werk zur Philosophie der Antike beschreibt deren Entfaltung und ermöglicht dem Leser, anhand einer begründeten Auswahl thematisch aufeinander bezogener Texte den Weg nachzuverfolgen, den die Autoren der Zeit mit dem Ziel gegangen sind, das menschliche Denken und Handeln am ›Anfang aller Dinge‹ zu orientieren.

Im ersten Band (Vom Mythos zur Rhetorik) geht es zunächst um die vorsokratische Frage nach der Einheit und dem Ursprung des Seienden und den Übergang zur Ausbildung der Rhetorik; sodann im zweiten (Sokrates, Platon und Aristoteles) um die klassische Gestalt der Philosophie, die nach einer Verbindung zwischen dem Denken des Anfangs der Dinge und der Begründung der Ethik suchte; und schließlich im dritten (Vom Hellenismus zum Christentum) um die Metamorphosen des metaphysischen Denkens in der Zeit vom Hellenismus bis zur Ausbildung der theologia naturalis im Zeichen des Christentums.

Der besondere Wert dieses Kompendiums besteht in der Präsentation eines methodisch durchdachten Leitfadens, nach dem die philosophischen Konzepte, aber auch der Prozeß, in dem sich das philosophische Denken in der antiken Welt entfaltet, als sinnvolle Einheiten zu verstehen sind. Dieser Leitfaden wird nicht beliebig konstruiert, sondern im Blick auf die gedankliche Bewegung und die sich darin entfaltende shape gewonnen, in der sich erstmals im antiken Griechenland die Philosophie als eine besondere Kulturform des Denkens konstituiert hat.
Philosophische Konzepte sind keine Einheiten, die für sich stehen und Satz für Satz entwickelt werden können, sondern sie beruhen auf Prinzipien, die ihrer äußeren shape zugrunde liegen. Hegel hat sie in der ›freien Tat‹ verortet, in der philosophisches Denken sich selbst begründet.
