Behemoth oder Das Lange Parlament (Philosophische Bibliothek by Thomas Hobbes,Peter Schröder

By Thomas Hobbes,Peter Schröder

Dem biblischen Seeungeheuer Leviathan, das in Hobbes gleichnamigem
Hauptwerk für die Allmacht des absolutistischen Staates
steht, stellt der Autor in dieser Schrift, die aufgrund eines königlichen
Druckverbots erst posthum erscheinen konnte, das Landungeheuer Behemoth
aus der jüdischen Mythologie gegenüber.
The lengthy Parliament bestand im Gegensatz zum brief Parliament, das
nur 22 Tage, beginnend am thirteen. April 1640, tagte, offi ziell von 1640 bis
1660. Dies ist die Periode, die Hobbes in seinem Behemoth behandelt.
Während der Leviathan systematisch erarbeitet, welche Bedingungen
für einen funktionierenden Staat erfüllt sein müssen, diskutiert der
Behemoth die Gründe für den durch Aufruhr und Bürgerkrieg herbeigeführten
Verfall des englischen Staates. Behemoth or the lengthy Parliament
steht als Chiffre für Anarchie und Aufl ösung staatlicher Gewalt. Titel
und Inhalt der Schrift scheinen das bewusst gewählte Gegenbild zum
konstruktiven Staatsentwurf des Leviathan zu bilden, und in der Tat
sind beide Werke in engem Zusammenhang zu lesen.
Der Behemoth ist in Dialogform verfasst. Hobbes geht es darum, die
Gründe zu verstehen, die zur Aufl ösung des englischen Gemeinwesens
geführt haben, aber er verfolgt auch Fragen nach einer erfolgreichen
politischen Erziehung, die seiner Ansicht nach vom Souverän geleistet
werden muss.
In seinem einleitenden Essay beleuchtet der Herausgeber neben der
verwickelten Editionsgeschichte ausführlich den Gedankengang und
den historischen und philosophischen Hintergrund dieses wichtigen
Hobbes'schen Werks.

Das Labor des Anthropologen: Anthropologie und Kultur bei by Mario Bührmann

By Mario Bührmann

Die Rezeption der Schriften des schottischen Philosophen und Historikers David Hume (1711-1776) hat sich lange Zeit speedy ausschließlich auf eine Auseinandersetzung mit seinen erkenntnistheoretischen Überlegungen beschränkt. Diese Schwerpunktsetzung führte dazu, daß Humes Beobachtungen und Reflexionen zur Ethik, Ästhetik, Geschichte, Politik, faith und Ökonomie weniger Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt wurde.

Mit Blick auf das Gesamtwerk, einschließlich seiner Korrespondenz, rekonstruiert Mario Bührmann in dieser Studie sowohl das Anthropologieverständnis Humes als auch seine Auffassung von Kultur, denn gerade diese in seinem Werk implizit bleibenden Konzeptionen sind für seine auf Erfahrung und Beobachtung basierenden Analysen erkenntnisleitend. Er arbeitet Humes Blick auf den Menschen als Natur- und Kulturwesen heraus und verdeutlicht dabei die Spannungen zwischen seinem Gesetzmäßigkeiten fokussierenden Anthropologiekonzept und seinem Heterogenität wie Partikularität betonenden Kulturverständnis. Da Hume in seinen Schriften stets auf das von antiken Philosophen, Dichtern oder Historikern bereitgestellte Reflexionspotential Bezug nimmt, legt diese Studie besonderes Augenmerk auf die Beschäftigung Humes mit der griechisch-römischen Antike.
