David Hume (1711-1776), philosopher, historian, and essayist, is widely considered to be Britain's greatest philosopher. One of the leading intellectual figures of the Scottish Enlightenment, his major works and central ideas, especially his radical empiricism and his critique of the pretensions of philosophical rationalism, remain hugely influential on contemporary philosophers.

The Companion presents details of Hume's life, historical and philosophical context, providing students with a comprehensive overview of all the key themes and topics apparent in his work, including his accounts of causal reasoning, scepticism, the soul and the self, action, reason, free will, miracles, natural religion, politics, human nature, women, economics and history, and an account of his reception and enduring influence. This textbook is indispensable to anyone studying in the areas of Hume Studies, British, and eighteenth-century philosophy.

"Tristram Shandy", Laurence Sterne

L'irruption de Tristram Shandy sur la scène littéraire en 1760 fit sensation. Ce livre déconcertant et provocateur, au croisement de la culture classique et de la modernité, suscite depuis deux siècles et demi des réactions ambivalentes. Par sa mise à nu des procédés narratifs, il interroge la littérature et fut souvent pris comme modèle par les tenants de la déconstruction. Mais les vignettes sentimentales eurent aussi leur heure de gloire. Sterne aimait à dire qu'une lettre adressée à " Tristram Shandy, Europe " lui parviendrait, où qu'il se trouve. La parution du texte étalée de 1759 à 1767 le força à renouveler ses trouvailles afin d'entretenir sa réputation d'originalité, toujours d'actualité à l'heure de l'hypertexte et des adaptations postmodernes, des interrogations sur l'héritage du roman et sur l'avenir de la fiction.

Warum es die Welt nicht gibt

Die Welt gibt es nicht. Aber das bedeutet nicht, dass es überhaupt nichts gibt. Mit Freude an geistreichen Gedankenspielen, Sprachwitz und Mut zur Provokation legt der Philosoph Markus Gabriel dar, dass es zwar nichts gibt, was es nicht gibt – die Welt aber unvollständig ist. Wobei noch längst nicht alles gut ist, nur weil es alles gibt. Und Humor hilft durchaus dabei, sich mit den Abgründen des menschlichen Seins auseinanderzusetzen.

Das Goethe-Buch für unsere Zeit: Rüdiger Safranski nähert sich dem letzten Universalgenie aus den primären Quellen – Werke, Briefe, Tagebücher, Gespräche, Aufzeichnungen von Zeitgenossen. So wird Goethe ungewohnt lebendig: Ein junger Mann aus gutem Hause, dem Studentenleben zugetan und dauerverliebt, wird Bestsellerautor, bekommt eine gutdotierte Stellung, dilettiert in Naturforschungen, flüchtet nach Italien, lebt in wilder Ehe – und bei alledem schreibt er seine unvergesslichen Werke. Doch er wollte noch mehr: Das Leben selbst sollte zum Kunstwerk werden. Safranskis souverän geschriebenes Buch macht uns zu Zeitgenossen dieses Menschen und schildert eindringlich, wie Goethe sich zu Goethe gemacht hat.
