Mit der Globalisierung wachst das Gefahrenpotential regional begrenzter kriegerischer Auseinandersetzungen, die sich in einer scheinbar endlosen Kette folgen. In diesen ausseren Konflikten vervielfaltigt sich der innere Unfriede des Menschen. Eine vertiefte Selbst-Erkenntnis tut darum heute mehr denn je Not. -Wir benotigen eine grossere Kenntnis der menschlichen Natur-, sagt C.G. Jung, -denn die einzige wirkliche Gefahr, die es gibt, ist der Mensch selber.- Im Menschen angelegt sind aber auch die Heilmittel, diese Gefahr zu bannen. Die vorliegende Studie erinnert an den Archetypus des Anthropos, den -Grossen Menschen- (homo altus, homo maximus) der Alchemie, der den Menschen von jeher begleitet hat. Es gilt, den Zugang zu diesem -grosseren Menschen- und damit den Zugang zu den Quellen von Harmonie und Einheit in uns wieder zu entdecken."
Exploring the Boundaries between History and Anthropology
Author: Eric Tagliacozzo,Andrew Willford
Publisher: Stanford University Press
Category: Social Science
The intersection between history and anthropology is more varied now than it has ever been—a look at the shelves of bookstores and libraries proves this. Historians have increasingly looked to the methodologies of anthropologists to explain inequalities of power, problems of voicelessness, and conceptions of social change from an inside perspective. And ethnologists have increasingly relied on longitudinal visions of their subjects, inquiries framed by the lens of history rather than purely structuralist, culturalist, or functionalist visions of behavior. The contributors have dealt with the problems and possibilities of the blurring of these boundaries in different and exciting ways. They provide further fodder for a cross-disciplinary experiment that is already well under way, describing peoples and their cultures in a world where boundaries are evermore fluid but where we all are alarmingly attached to the cataloguing and marking of national, ethnic, racial, and religious differences.
The Jewel in the Anthropos is the first in a series of 3 books which should be considered together. This book's first draft was penned in December 2015. It is a journey of a shared nature, the nature that makes us who we are - human. The reader must realise that any journey faces challenges yet, great benefit is available to those who embrace true creativity. The reader may ask What is the Jewel in our being? The answer to that question is also the answer to many questions. This is not because it is clever but, because it is total. That totality, in leaving nothing out, is not considered but, relaxed to such a degree that it hangs in space like a powerful engine ready to take us anywhere, anytime, anyhow.
The discipline of anthropology is, at its best, characterized by turbulence, self-examination, and inventiveness. In recent decades, new thinking and practice within the field has certainly reflected this pattern, as shown for example by numerous fruitful ventures into the "politics and poetics" of anthropology. Surprisingly little attention, however, has been given to the simple insight that anthropology is composed of claims, whether tacit or explicit, about anthropos and about logos--and the myriad ways in which these two Greek nouns have been, might be, and should be, connected. Anthropos Today represents a pathbreaking effort to fill this gap. Paul Rabinow brings together years of distinguished work in this magisterial volume that seeks to reinvigorate the human sciences. Specifically, he assembles a set of conceptual tools--"modern equipment"--to assess how intellectual work is currently conducted and how it might change. Anthropos Today crystallizes Rabinow's previous ethnographic inquiries into the production of truth about life in the world of biotechnology and genome mapping (and his invention of new ways of practicing this pursuit), and his findings on how new practices of life, labor, and language have emerged and been institutionalized. Here, Rabinow steps back from empirical research in order to reflect on the conceptual and ethical resources available today to conduct such inquiries. Drawing richly on Foucault and many other thinkers including Weber and Dewey, Rabinow concludes that a "contingent practice" must be developed that focuses on "events of problematization." Brilliantly synthesizing insights from American, French, and German traditions, he offers a lucid, deeply learned, original discussion of how one might best think about anthropos today.
A Philosophical Interpretation of the Anthropic Cosmological Principle
Author: Errol E. Harris
Publisher: Humanities Press International
In Cosmos and Theos Professor Errol E. Harris develops the theological, ethical, and social implications of the Anthropic Cosmological Principle. He argues that the twentieth-century revolution in physics reinstates the traditional arguments for the existence of God that had been inevitably invalidated by the logic appropriate to Empiricism and the presuppositions of Newtonian science. Errol E. Harris stresses that the holism of contemporary science now demands a new dialectical logic and metaphysic, in the light of which old doctrines assume a new aspect and gain fresh vitality. Professor Harris reviews the history of religion in relation to contemporary developments in science, contending that the conflict between the two, persistent since the seventeenth century, is largely the effect of the Copernican-Newtonian scientific paradigm rather than of any insuperable divergence of aim or dogma. He also reviews the salient arguments--and the criticism of them--that have been offered in the history of Western philosophy for God's existence. Cosmos and Theos concludes with a reinterpretation of Christian doctrine, intended to demonstrate the essential congruity between its tenets and the current conceptions of the Anthropic Principle.
