Inhaltsangabe

What is reality? Ask yourself whether you can actually know the answer, much less be sure that you can know it, and you've begun to grapple with the metaphysical and epistemological quandaries that have occupied, teased, and tormented modern philosophy's greatest intellects since the dawn of modern science and a century before the Enlightenment.

These 36 lectures are the perfect introduction to the basics of modern and contemporary Western approaches to the philosophies of both reality (metaphysics) and knowledge (epistemology), right through the end of the 20th century. Led by Professor Cahoone, you'll partake in an engaging intellectual journey that encompasses prominent figures from all the major traditions of Western philosophy.

You'll explore the ideas behind modern philosophy's most important movements, including dualism, rationalism, empiricism, idealism, existentialism, and postmodernism. You'll plunge into the thought of some of philosophy's most important thinkers, including Descartes, Locke, Spinoza, Hume, Kant, Hegel, Peirce, Nietzsche, James, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Rorty, and Derrida, learning how many of them were in fact considered radicals, their views appreciated far less in their own era than in later ones.

And you'll gain a clear sense of how each of these movements and thinkers fits into philosophy's broader progression, often pushing philosophy in dramatically new directions right up to the present day, as well as how philosophy is intimately related to a multitude of other disciplines.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

The best so far.

I think it's the fourth introduction to (modern) philosophy that I've read or heard and it's the best so far.
I like its balance between depth and intelligibility.
The balance between description of the discussed author's lives + anecdotes and their philosophy.
The cross references are very helpful as well as the careful evaluation.
As far as I can judge there is no hidden agenda or opinion of the author intermingled (except maybe the author's evaluation of Marxism).
But the most important and best thing about this audio book is the ability of the author to break all these complex things and thoughts down to comprehensible bits.
Simply love it!

etwas kompliziert und langatmig

Es wurde ein guter Überblick über die verschiedenen Strömungen gegeben, aber teilweise waren es zu viele Informationen und deshalb etwas schwer zu folgen.

Amazing Introduction to Philosophy

Auf welchen Platz würden Sie The Modern Intellectual Tradition: From Descartes to Derrida auf Ihrer Hörbuch-Bestenliste setzen?

1

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

..

Welche Figur hat Professor Lawrence Cahoone Ihrer Meinung nach am besten interpretiert?

Hard to say, but I found the lecture on Hume absolutely fascinating

Hat dieses Hörbuch Sie emotional stark bewegt? Mussten Sie laut z.B. lachen, weinen, zweifeln, etc.?

Of course you need to concentrate a bit while listening but nevertheless even complete beginners can appreciate these lectures.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

What I liked best about the lectures was how Professor Cahoone managed to draw a consistent line from the beginnings of philosophy to the modern days and by focusing on a few particular ideas and their development gives precious insight into the moving force that is philosophy - highly recommended!!
