Download E-books La Nature des choses PDF

By Lucretius

Le poème de Lucrèce (98 ou ninety four av J-C- fifty five av J-C) est un des textes fondateurs de l. a. philosophie en Occident. vehicle Lucrèce s'y montre plus qu'un basic sectateur d'Epicure : disciple fécond, il est comme le refondateur à Rome de l'épicurisme athénien. Loin de se présenter comme un système rigoureusement ordonné par des prémisses ou dicté par des axiomes, cette philosophie n'a d'autre yet que l'apaisement ethical de l'homme, plutôt que l. a. connaissance du monde. Tout au lengthy des siècles, une fois ce poème redécouvert au début de los angeles Renaissance, l. a. Nature des choses n'a cessé d'être une référence philosophique. Qu'on lise, au dernier livre, les passages consacrés à l. a. peste. l. a. peste est un argument que toute théodicée doit réfuter puisqu'elle pose, de manière spectaculaire, le scandale de l. a. mort du juste et de l'innocent. Or Lucrèce ne réfute pas los angeles peste, il s'en sert, au contraire, pour montrer l'absence de windfall, et du même coup guérir l'âme d'une maladie autrement essentielle, los angeles peur de los angeles mort. Ce qui fait scandale, ce n'est plus los angeles peste, c'est tout simplement Lucrèce.
