Ein Buch über das Sterben, das das Leben lehrt Die Medizin scheint über Krankheit und Tod zu triumphieren, doch sterben wir so trostlos wie nie zuvor. Der Bestsellerautor und renommierte Arzt Atul Gawande schreibt in seinem beeindruckenden Buch über das, was am Ende unseres Lebens wirklich zählt. Ungewöhnlich offen spricht er darüber, was es bedeutet, alt zu werden, wie man mit Gebrechen und Krankheiten umgehen kann und was wir an unserem System ändern müssen, um unser Leben würdevoll zu Ende zu bringen. Ein mutiges und weises Buch eines großartigen Autors, voller Geschichten und eigener Erfahrungen, das uns hilft, die Geschichte unseres Lebens gut zu Ende zu erzählen. »Dieses Buch ist nicht nur weise und sehr bewegend, sondern gerade in unserer Zeit unbedingt notwendig und sehr aufschlussreich.« Oliver Sacks »Die medizinische Betreuung ist mehr auf Heilung ausgelegt als auf das Sterben. Dies ist Atuls Gawandes stärkstes und bewegendstes Buch.« Malcolm Gladwell

Geschichte der antiken Philosophie

Author: Michaela Masek
Publisher: UTB
ISBN: 9783825238476
Release Date: 2012-10-04
Genre: Philosophy

Der Band führt historisch-systematisch in die antike Philosophie ein, indem zentrale philosophische Fragen anhand ausgewählter Themen und Texte dargestellt werden. In der griechischen Antike wurden erstmals die Problemstellungen, Methoden und Begrifflichkeiten entwickelt, die das abendländische Denken bis in die gegenwärtigen Debatten wesentlich prägen. Durch genaue Lektüre von kurzen und prägnanten Originaltexten wird das Bedeutungsspektrum klassischer griechischer Termini im jeweiligen Kontext erklärt, um an die Denkweisen antiker Philosophen heranzuführen und gleichzeitig aufzuzeigen, inwiefern griechisches Gedankengut für das Verständnis von Philosophie bis heute relevant ist.
