  1. 6. Tingens lydnad och människans väntan : Nödvändighet, nåd, handling och tänkande i Simone Weils filosofi

    Författare :Victor Christola; [2017]
    Nyckelord :Weil; Simone Weil; nödvändighet; nåd; handling; tänkande; amor fati; uppmärksamhet; kärlek; rättvisa; etik; moral; epistemologi; vetenskapsteori; vetenskap; empiri; deduktion; analogi; matematik; ödet; tyngden; tyngdlagen; insikt; styrka; Homeros; Galilei; Newton; Spinoza; Winch; Leibniz; Nietzsche; Cockburn; Kate Larson; Rhees; Herakleitos; Parmenides; Lacan; Boethius; Jesus; Platon; Walter Benjamin;

    Sammanfattning : This bachelor thesis engages in a quest to understand the concepts of necessity and grace in Simone Weils thinking. The question in play, in which many more questions lie hidden, reads as follows: How does Weil understand the operations of grace in relation to the ”blind necessity” of the natural world, and what are the philosophical implications of this concept of grace? What are, for instance, given her understanding of the world as God’s creation, the metaphysical grounds for a basic human activitiy such as thinking or reflexion? A reading of Simone Weils works on necessity, grace, affliction and attention is contrasted with her thoughts on science, method and truth. LÄS MER

  2. 7. När tiden upphör vara krökt av Gud : en undersökning av Kants shakespeareska aspekt

    Kandidat-uppsats, Södertörns högskola/Filosofi

    Författare :August Hjalmarsson; [2016]
    Nyckelord :Deleuze; time; movement; metaphysics; Kant; Shakesepare; tragedy;

    Sammanfattning : This essay aims to understand the relationship between Shakespeare’s poetical formula, which is Hamlet´s claim that “time is out of joint” and Kant’s positioning of time (and space) based on Deleuze’s conception in Sur quatre formules poétiques qui pourraient résumerla philosophie kantienne from 1986. I explore this relationship in the way of how Deleuze relates it to the entanglement between time and movement. LÄS MER

  3. 8. Att Vandra i Intets Närhet : Wittgenstein, Heidegger och Vägen Bortom Filosofins Slut

    Magister-uppsats, Södertörns högskola/Filosofi

    Författare :Simon Norenius; [2016]
    Nyckelord :Heidegger; Wittgenstein; the end of philosophy; language; difference; being; nothing; meaning; truth; image; metaphysics;

    Sammanfattning : What does it mean to occupy the other side of what is - to “be” the nothing that lies beyond being? Or, in other words: Where yonder the End of Philosophy? Thus reads the first and final line of inquiry that we, the philosophers of this age, are impelled to pursue. Such is the case, I contend, in light of the fact that our time quite simply is that of the eschatological aftermath, the “postmodern” era where the purportedly “greatest” thinkers of our immediate past, Martin Heidegger and Ludwig Wittgenstein, have, each in his own way, already declared philosophical moratorium.

  4. 9. Om Gilles Deleuzes filosofiska läsart : Kritiskt skapande läsning genom tecken, begrepp och möte

    Kandidat-uppsats, Södertörns högskola/Institutionen för kultur och lärande

    Författare :Emet Brulin; [2016]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Gilles Deleuze once, in a letter, described reading in the following way: “It's like plugging in to an electric circuit.” This powerful statement together with the ”zone of indiscernibility” that readers of Deleuze often experience, as well as the insufficient scholarly engagement with Deleuze’s practice of reading philosophy constitute the starting points to study the metaphysical conditions of Deleuze’s act of reading.

  5. 10. Filebos : En nyckel till Platons tankar omDet goda livet, belyst genom grottliknelsen?

    Kandidat-uppsats, Södertörns högskola/Institutionen för kultur och lärande

    Författare :Monika Margareta Ringborg; [2015]
    Nyckelord :Philebus; Plato; Allegory of the Cave; dialectic; the good life; the soul; beauty; proportion; truth; pain; ranking;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this essay is to read Philebus based on three central themes – The Soul dialectic, the esoteric elements and some ethical problems, as well as to seek a comprehensive interpretation, rather than investigating, analyzing and interpreting individual concepts. Some questions that the essay aims to follow up are: 1) how can the dialogue on desire and rational knowledge highlighting Plato's ideas about the good life? 2) What are Plato’s real messages in the exposition of the good life? 3) Why are ethical questions related to esoteric elements of Plato's dialogues, and in general? The method is a reading between the lines; a hermeneutic interpretation process. LÄS MER
