Menschen, die ihre Handys verschlingen, Bücher, die die Existenz Napoleons bestreiten und Seeräuber, die vorbildliche Kapitalisten abgeben – so absurd die Phänomene der modernen Gesellschaft erscheinen mögen, sie werfen dringliche Fragen auf: Blüht auf dem Boden einer überkorrekten Politik ein neuer Rassismus? Kann man sich im digitalen Dschungel durchschlagen, ohne völlig den Kopf zu verlieren? Ecos Antworten lassen das Röntgenbild einer modernen Gesellschaft entstehen, sie sind ein letztes Geschenk an seine Leser – scharfsinnig, witzig und immer erhellend. „Pape Satàn“ ist ein Buch, das belebend wirkt wie ein gutes Gespräch, und es ist eine Liebeserklärung an das Lesen.

The SAGE Handbook of Philosophy of Education

Author: Richard Bailey
Publisher: SAGE
ISBN: 9781446206973
Release Date: 2010-03-23
Genre: Education

This book provides an authoritative, yet accessible guide to the Philosophy of Education, its scope, its key thinkers and movements, and its potential contribution to a range of educational concerns. The text offers a balanced view of three key dimensions: first, in giving an equal weight to different styles and modes of philosophy; second, by including past and present perspectives on philosophy of education; and third, in covering both the general "perennial" issues in philosophy and issues of more contemporary concern. Section one of the book exemplifies different styles of philosophy, paying attention to the contemporary debates as to the nature, possibilities and limitations of these different approaches to philosophy of education. Section two is devoted to particular thinkers of the past, and more general coverage of the history of philosophy of education. Section three is dedicated to contemporary philosophic thought on education, providing the basis and reference point for an exploration of contemporary issues. The handbook is designed primarily to be useful to students studying the field of philosophy of education, in the context of the study of educational foundations or theory. But it is also designed to be of use to practising teachers who wish to gain easy access to current philosophical thinking on particular contemporary educational issues, and to educationalists of all types who want a succinct guide to questions relating to the nature, the history, and the current state of the art of philosophy of education.

Die Philosophie bei Harry Potter

Author: Gregory Bassham
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9783527505715
Release Date: 2010
Genre:

Der große Kampf ist vorbei. Das Gute hat gesiegt und so ist es nun an der Zeit innezuhalten, um einen Blick auf eines der bedeutendsten literarischen Phänomene unserer Zeit zu werfen und zu erkennen welche Magie hinter den unsterblichen Büchern von Joanne K. Rowling steckt. Die Philosophie bei Harry Potter zeigt, dass viel mehr in den mehr als 5000 Seiten und bald 8 Filmen über den kleinen Zauberlehrling steckt, als man mit bloßem Auge beim ersten Lesen erfassen kann. Und daher rührt schließlich auch der große Erfolg der Bücher und Filme, die nicht nur Kinder und Jugendliche sondern Erwachsene gleichermaßen faszinieren. Selbst die Großen Zauberer an den Universitäten befanden Harry Potter, seine Entwicklung und seine Abenteuer würdig, um sich damit zu beschäftigen. Was sie darin fanden, waren große Ideen und Erkenntnisse über alle wichtigen Dinge, die uns das Leben lehrt: Mut, Freundschaft, Gerechtigkeit, Liebe und Ehrgeiz verbinden sich mit der Frage nach Gut und Böse, Freiheit und Tod. So erweist sich Joanne K. Rowling nicht nur als eine großartige Geschichtenerzählerin, sondern beschäftigt sich durchaus mit Konzepten, die unser Leben jeden Tag aufs Neue bestimmen. *Was ist Liebe und warum gilt sie als mächtigster Zauber der Welt? *Was treibt die Mächtigen wie Dumbledore oder Lucius Malfoy an? *Was ist Realität - was Illusion? *Genießen die kleinen Zauberer im Zauberinternat eine gute Erziehung? *Ist es wirklich wie Dumbledore sagt, dass unsere Entscheidungen viel mehr über uns verraten als unsere Fähigkeiten?
