By Jean Lefranc

Schopenhauer est le plus méconnu des grands philosophes du XIXe siècle. L'influence de son pessimisme a été considérable chez les philosophes (Nietzsche), les musiciens (Wagner), les artistes, les écrivains russes (Tolstoï), allemands (Mann), anglais (Conrad), français (Maupassant, Mallarmé, Proust...). Pourtant, los angeles portée de son œuvre, malgré ou à reason de ses qualités littéraires, a très souvent été appréciée à contre-sens. On a vu en lui un romantique, un irrationaliste, un contempteur des sciences, un moraliste pénétrant mais amer, misogyne et réactionnaire, et, de plus, peu conséquent avec lui-même. Les wagnériens en ont fait le prophète d'une faith de los angeles musique et de l'art overall. Plus récemment, il est devenu un précurseur de l'existentialisme ou d'une philosophie de l'absurde. Le présent ouvrage entend rectifier cette snapshot. Schopenhauer, successeur authentique de Kant, prolonge l. a. critique de los angeles raison par elle-même et en tire toutes les conséquences. Sa métaphysique de l. a. volonté correspond bien à l. a. body des forces contemporaine et ne se confond ni avec une philosophie de l. a. décadence ni avec une exaltation mystique. Son pessimisme, ni psychologique ni historique, mais métaphysique, reste une example critique radicale. Son renversement des philosophies de l. a. moral sense ouvrant sur Freud, comme sa war of words de los angeles culture biblique occidentale et de l. a. pensée religieuse de l'Inde se sont avérés riches de prolongements.

Sample text

Johansen 1998:105) Interpreted in this light, Protagoras will have justification for advo cating his theory of truth in preference to other theories, since this is a more expedient and fruitful view than the absolutist conception he tries to overcome. It has also been argued that the main problem with Protagorean relativism is that a relativist cannot distinguish between what is right and what one thinks is right. Hilary Putnam maintains that the relativist cannot make sense of the distinction between being right and thinking that he is right (because whatever seems right to him is right).

Thus Persians do not regard it as strange to have sex with their daughters, while Greeks regard it as prohibited. The Messegetae, according to Eudoxus in Book 1 of his Journey round the World, have their wives in common; Greeks do not. The Cilicians used to take pride in being pirates; but not the Greeks. Different people believe in different gods; some believe in divine providence and others do not. The Egyptians dispose of their dead by embalming, the Romans by cremation, the Paeonians by throwing them into lakes.

He argues that everything is relative in two senses: firstly, relative to the person who makes the judgement and, secondly, relative to the context and object being observed. The example he gives is that of the right and left which can be established only in relation to other objects. The conclusion Sextus derives, like Agrippa, is So, since we have established in this way that everything is relative [pros ti], it is clear then that we shall not be able to say what each existing object is like in its own nature and purely, but only what it appears to be like relative to something.
