Phenomenology of Communication
Kaiser, Benjamin ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (advisor) ; Joisten, Karen (referee) ; Schmiedl-Neuburg, Hilmar (referee)
Doctoral thesis by Benjamin Kaiser (FHS UK): Title in English: Relating and unrelating. A phenomenology of impartation. Abstract (English) Using a phenomenological analysis of the living body, this thesis investigates the dynamics of relating and unrelating in the context of philosophical anthropology. The first main chapter on "Mediation and Deprivation" argues that, in the context of early 20th century, certain philosophical paradigms arose which made the medium an absolute concept: some examples are those of environment; milieu and media theory. On the other hand, Husserl developed the phenomenological Epoché; and Plessner's and Scheler's emphasised the world/environment- difference as a negative response towards these paradigmatic accounts on mediation. An excursus further investigates the "sceptical beginnings of phenomenology" by making a comparison between the Epoché of the ancient Greek scepticism in the works of Sextus Empiricus and the phenomenological Epoché of Husserl. It shows that already in its earliest forms in ancient philosophy the Epoché was understood as related to our bodily existence. The second main chapter develops a "Phenomenology of Boundary Embodiment [Grenzleiblichkeit]". Following Hans Rainer Sepp's anthropology of the living body, this chapter analyses certain phenomena in...
Über den Pinselstrich - unter demAspekt des Verhältnisses von Gesichts- und Tastsinn. Eine phänomenologische Studie
Huang, Ziming ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (advisor) ; Schmiedl-Neuburg, Hilmar (referee) ; Joisten, Karen (referee)
Summary: The dissertation conducts a phenomenological study of the brushstroke in art from the perspective of the relationship between sight and touch. The previous analyzes of painting focus mostly on the sense of sight, this thesis is characterized by the emphasis on the importance of the sense of touch in visual art. The theme is related to both philosophy and art, so the investigation consists of two main parts, "Theoretical Analysis" and "Detailed Analysis". In the part of the "theoretical analysis" first a "historical overview of sight and touch" is led. The philosophical research on perception and the relationship of sight and touch are summarized. Phenomenological observation points to the fundamental meaning of the sense of touch in the corporeality. According to the research of simple perception, the "layer analysis of the image" is carried out. Image-consciousness is a matter of multiple objectivities and their apprehensions. Different layers in image theory by Husserl and Ingarden are presented and compared. In terms of aesthetic experience, Dufrenne's distinction between the artwork and the aesthetic object is guided. The importance of sight and touch in the aesthetic consideration of the brushstroke is recognized. On the basis of the "theoretical analysis" the "detailed analysis" is carried...
Forms of Absorbedness: The Role of Dream Analysis in the Early Works of Eugen Fink
Chu, Ming Hon ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (advisor) ; Nielsen, Cathrin (referee)
In Vergegenwärtigung und Bild, his doctoral thesis published in 1930, Fink has worked out the idea of being absorbed in a world for elaborating the specificities of unreality. And the phenomenon of being absorbed in a world is most exemplarily effective in the case of dream. The phenomenon of dream opens up a theoretical horizon for questioning the reality of the factual world, by indicating the conceivability that the factual world we believe as real might turn out to be a dream for another real world. Thanks to the "epistemological argument", Fink thereby discloses a conceivable emigration from the pre-given world to another world, with the clue of dream. And this "transworld" movement is not only an arbitrary speculation like a round square, but transcendentally threatens the self-familiarity of man. We would like to put forward the idea that the faith in the world is relativized by the conceivable unreality of our pre-given world. In this work, we attempt to articulate the transcendental instability of world- belief. Since the subject of transworld movement is neither a man living in the pre-given world, for it quits the pre-given world, nor the transcendental subject in its purity, for it is still situated in a worldly context, we suggest the inquiry of transword movement to be a supplementary part...
The phenomenality of the phenomenon of absolute Idem in Zen, citing the Shóbógenzó of Dogen Zenji - A work in the form of a translation of the state of emptiness or enlightenment in the perspective of the radical life phenomenology of Michel Henry
Wilmes, Ellen Ursula ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (advisor) ; Seyler, Frédéric (referee) ; Vogd, Werner (referee) ; Günther, Hans Christian (referee)
Ellen Wilmes, Dissertation 2017, Prof. Dr. Sepp, Prof. Dr.Vogd English version The present research project defines an expedition in a world investigating under a turned presupposition. This is the translation of a dualistic presupposition of world to a non-dualistic presupposition of world. The phenomenon of "absolute Idem", well-known as Satori or enlightenment in Zen Buddhism is the aim of this investigation. With the perspective of radical phenomenology of life of Michel Henry and Shobogenzo as basic work of Dogen Zenji, Japanese master of Zen characteristics of absolute Idem are compiled. These attributes (body, mind, thinking, doing, duality, non-duality, phenomenality of contemporaneity, phenomenon of exclusivity, causality and time, ethic) are investigated. With the turned presupposition, the expedition is a kind of "new formatting" of world. In this way, following topics unfold: 1. World is setting in non-duality under a turned presupposition. 2. Consequences of investigation in all areas of science succeed, because different question are possible. 3. Problems of the world and humanity (war, peace, global environment, energy) can find new ways of questions and answers. 4. The individual isn't simple only an individual in design of subject under, near and with an object, but the individual is...
Absolute knowledge and groundless certainty by Hegel and Wittgenstein.
Berg, Alexander ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (advisor) ; Rentsch, Thomas (referee) ; Novotný, Karel (referee)
A l e x a n d e r B e r g - Z u s a m m e n f a s s u n g - D i s s e r t a t i o n 2 0 1 7 Absolutes Wissen und Grundlose Gewissheit bei Hegel und Wittgenstein "Hegel seems to me to be always wanting to say that things which look different are really the same. Whereas my interest is in showing that things which look the same are really different." (Wittgenstein im Phoenix-Park, Dublin 1948) Abstract Der Wert dieser Untersuchung besteht darin, zum einen anhand des vielfältigen z. T. erst neu zugänglichen Materials Wittgensteins Phoenix-Park- Satz besser verstehen zu können und damit insgesamt eine tiefere Einsicht in den Zusammenhang des Wittgenstein'schen Denkens mit der Philosophie Hegels zu ermöglichen. Weiter stehen Wittgensteins Überlegungen zu Hegel aber auch im Kontext der Frage nach der Stellung seiner eigenen lebenslangen philosophischen Anstrengungen zu denjenigen der großen Denker der Philosophiegeschichte überhaupt. Die verschiedenen konkret historischen und ideengeschichtlichen Verbindungen, so wie sie in dieser Untersuchung von Wittgenstein's Denken über die philosophische Scholastik im Mittelalter bis zum antiken Ursprung der philosophischen Tradition zurückverfolgt werden konnten, helfen dabei, einer Antwort auf diese Frage Wittgensteins etwas näher zu kommen.
The Concept of "Autonomy of Reason" in the Philosophy of the Enlightenment by Ernst Cassirer: A Review of a Classical Work in the Light of the New Literature.
Arriola, Jonathan ; Zapero, David (advisor) ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (referee)
In this Master's thesis, I propose to first investigate the existence of this autonomy of reason, which Cassirer postulates as a differentia specifica of enlightenment against other epochs, and which articulates this entire flow. Secondly, the critique of Cassirer's work and its truth content will be examined more closely. In order to make this project feasible, I will focus, among others, on Jonathan Israel's depiction of Enlightenment, and his idea, according to which two irreconcilable explanations have been given, is a concept which Cassirer himself was altogether alien to. Cassirer, Enlightenment, Reason, Autonomy, Jonathan Israel.
Political Worlds. A Comparison Between Alain Badiou and Klaus Held
Palacios Bustamante, Oscar ; Gabriel, Markus (advisor) ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (referee)
The main thesis of this work is that Alain Badiou as well as Klaus Held think of the political as the connection of early separated worlds. This thesis is sustained through a comparison between Held's phenomenology of political world and Badiou's mathematical onto-logy. Crucial in this comparison is the difference between the points of departure of these investigations, where the limits and the present of phenomenology and "realist" Ontologies can be a subject of reflection. Key words: Alain Badiou, Klaus Held, political phenomenology, mathematical Ontology, event, subjectivity
The Principle of Sufficient Reason in Kant and Meillassoux: On the Reason and Unreason of Post-metaphysical Thought
Sistiaga, Sergey ; Novák, Aleš (advisor) ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (referee) ; Theis, Robert (referee)
The Principle of Sufficient Reason in Kant and Meillassoux: On the Reason and Unreason of Post-metaphysical Thought. The aim of this thesis is to probe the alleged grounds of post-metaphysical thought in order to unearth its foundations. This genetic-systematic inquiry thus not only aims to scrutinize possible interpretations of the judgment the tribunal of reason is said to have passed on itself qua reason, but, more importantly, to revise the very judgment itself and to question the legitimacy of the tribunal. Apart from the fact that self-administered justice rarely results in convictions, the process seems ill-conceived from the start. The thesis sets in with an analysis of Quentin Meillassoux's recent invigorating and highly original re- discovery of post-metaphysical thought's unreason and a close reading of Kant's relevant pre- critical and critical works: while judgment was indeed passed in the name of "pure reason", it was not passed on reason itself but merely on its "logical" use. Only reason's usus logicus, not its usus realis were indicted by reason. In other words, the judgment has been misunderstood. The reason for this misunderstanding is located in Kant's philosophical presuppositions, which thus emerge as the very unreason of post-metaphysical thought. Since such unreason cannot...
The Sublime Revisited: The Kantian Sublime in the Historical Context
Narimani Ghahnavieh, Golnar ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (advisor) ; Romer, Inga (referee)
it focuses on a close reading of Kant's pre nt's pre chronological approach towards Kant's predecessors, or treats Kantian sublime as the major focal historical context, in order to both find out Kant's specific contributions to the discourse of question addressed by this research is the influence and impact of Kant's moral theory for and on his aesthetics. The sublime is a pivotal element of Kantian aesthetics which reveals how Kant's theorists to one with a priori grounds, based on Kant's pure practical reason; moreover an analysis , but as independently crucial to Kant's philosphy. Kant's moral theory's development. Next, we have explored
Adorno's Concept of Utopia
Erfanmanesh, Safoura ; Rometsch, Jens (advisor) ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (referee)
This master's thesis examines Adorno's concept of Utopia. Throughout this work I argue that Adorno is a utopian thinker and his conception of Utopia is a constellation or montage of negative, messianic-materialistic, formal, and individualistic definitions of Utopia. I elucidate my argument by reconstructing Adorno's conceptual constellation of Utopia in different chapters and sections of this work in the form of an interpretive constellation. In the first chapter, I explain how Utopia got lost, by investigating the causes of the failure of Enlightenment's utopian goals such as rationality, freedom, progress, and establishment of the whole society as humanity. This failure necessitates a radical reconsideration of all fundamental principles of thought and society. In chapter two I analyze Adorno's conception of negative Utopia as the determinate negation of Dystopia. His negative dialectics is the recognition of what is non-identical to thought's concepts and categories. The non-identical is the condition of the possibility of Utopia, because it indicates that there is something 'more' than what our conceptual system of knowledge can comprehend, this 'more' is the utopian. I continue this chapter by discussing Adorno's inverse theology as messianic materialism which maintains that there is no transcendent...
