Für die RAF war er das System, für mich der Vater by Anne Siemens

By Anne Siemens

Vor 30 Jahren fand der Terror der RAF seinen Höhepunkt in den Ermordungen von Hanns-Martin Schleyer, Jürgen Ponto und der Ent­führung der »Landshut«: Ereignisse, die die Deutschen bis heute prägen. Anne Siemens erzählt diese dramatische Geschichte neu, aus der Sicht der Opfer. Dadurch, dass sich die Angehörigen – viele zum ersten Mal – in bewegenden Interviews öffnen, wird deutlich, was once der Terror der RAF wirklich bedeutet hat. Bislang gab es nur eine Tätergeschichte; die bekannten wie die unbekannten Opfer des Terrors blieben weitgehend ungehört. Sie sprechen nun in dem Buch von Anne Siemens, erzählen, wie ihre Väter und ihre Männer lebten, warum sie sterben mussten und wie sich das Leben ihrer Familien dadurch veränderte.

Knowing people and their unique rational and volitional capacities is among the valuable initiatives of philosophy. the duty calls for a transparent account of things like purposes, wishes, feelings and factors, and of ways they mix to provide and clarify human behaviour. In varieties of purposes, Maria Alvarez deals a clean and incisive therapy of those concerns, focusing particularly on purposes as they function in contexts of organisation. Her account builds on a few very important contemporary paintings within the region; yet she takes her major concept from the culture that gets its seminal modern expression within the writings of G.E.M. Anscombe, a convention that runs counter to the commonly Humean orthodoxy that has ruled the speculation of motion for the earlier 40 years. Alvarez's conclusions are accordingly prone to be arguable; and her daring and painstaking arguments can be discovered provocative by way of members on each part of the debates with which she engages. transparent and at once written, varieties of purposes goals to stake out a particular place inside some of the most hotly contested components of latest philosophy.

By Jean-Michel Berthelot

Quelle position est donnée aux explanations, quelle signification accordée aux raisons ? Faut-il opposer ou articuler explication et compréhension ? Les sciences sociales sont des disciplines aux frontières incertaines. Les unes, comme l'histoire ou los angeles géographie, remontent à l'Antiquité. Les autres, comme l. a. sociologie ou l. a. psychologie sociale, ont tout juste un siècle. Certaines prennent pour objet l'ensemble des phénomènes sociaux et d'autres - l'économie, los angeles linguistique, and so forth. - privilégient un domaine d'activité déterminé. Mais derrière cette diversité - d'origines, d'objet, de culture - surgissent des issues essentiels de rencontre et de recouvrement que synthétise et interroge ce manuel.

Contro il non profit by Moro, Giovanni

By Moro, Giovanni

Come una teoria riduttiva produce informazioni confuse, inganna l'opinione pubblica e favorisce comportamenti discutibili a danno di quelli da premiare.

Che cosa hanno in comune un’università non statale e un doposcuola in quartieri degradati? Un centro health e un’organizzazione sportiva in line with disabili? Un pub e una mensa consistent with i poveri? Una clinica religiosa e un’associazione di volontariato sanitario? consistent with tutti è ovvio che siano organizzazioni preziose perché non distribuiscono utili, favoriscono l. a. coesione sociale e rispondono ai bisogni dei più deboli. Il loro contributo all’interesse generale, però, non è scontato. Una teoria difettosa ha infatti unito in un insieme magmatico iniziative della massima utilità sociale, altre genericamente confident e altre che utilizzano a fini propri l’alone di benemerenza di cui questo insieme gode.
Giovanni Moro fornisce una prospettiva critica su questa realtà, sempre più importante ma conosciuta poco e male.
