Download Temperamentos filosóficos (El Ojo del Tiempo) (Spanish by Peter Sloterdijk,Jorge Seca PDF

By Peter Sloterdijk,Jorge Seca

«El título de los angeles presente colección alude a los angeles conocida sentencia de Fichte de que los angeles filosofía que uno elige depende del tipo de personality que se es.

Esta observación sigue siendo ahora tan verdadera como siempre. Espero haber mostrado con los breves estudios aquí reunidos que l. a. escala de los temperamentos filosóficos va mucho más allá de los angeles oposición entre tipos cobardes y orgullosos. Es tan extensa como el alma iluminada por el trademarks, cuyos límites, afirmaba Heráclito, resultan imposibles de alcanzar, por mucho que se los angeles recorra.» Peter Sloterdijk
