Download E-books Diccionario filosófico PDF

By Fernando Savater

En sus páginas Fernando Savater aborda los angeles vida y obra de grandes pensadores como Voltaire, Rousseau, Spinoza, Nietzsche, Santayana o Bertrand Russell, y reflexiona sobre abundantes temas oficialmente filosóficos, como l. a. naturaleza, l. a. muerte, l. a. justicia o el ser. Pero el autor no rechaza otros que rara vez figuran en diccionarios de filosofía, como el dinero, los angeles enfermedad, los sueños, el erotismo o l. a. estupidez. Y aunque toma partido en diversas polémicas contemporáneas (la confusión entre ética y política, los angeles recaída en los angeles religión de ciertos pensadores, l. a. egolatría mística o revolucionaria, los angeles crítica posmoderna de l. a. universalidad...), prefiere ocuparse ante todo de los problemas de los hombres que de las querellas de los filósofos. Un diccionario heterodoxo que es una sugestiva iniciación en l. a. filosofía.
