Item description for Relation Als Vergleich: Die Relationstheorie Des Johannes Buridan Im Kontext Seines Denkens Und Der Scholastik (Studien Und Texte Zur Geistesgeschichte Des Mittelalters) by Rolf Schonberger...

All central concepts in philosophy contain a relational aspect. The type of reality to be accorded to relations is for this reason one of the core questions of philosophical thought. This is particularly so in the case of nominalism. This book is devoted to John Buridan. While his towering importance in the late Middle Ages and for the development of early modern science has been recognised, his works are still not really well known. How does his theory of relations relate to those of his contemporaries, for example William of Ockham or Gregory of Rimini? The question of the reality of relations is not only of interest as an experimentum crucis of nominalism, but also because Buridan in his ethics frequently falls back upon older traditions. The first part of the book contains a discussion of theories of relation from Thomas Aquinas to Gregory of Rimini. The author then offers an exhaustive presentation of the basic lines of Buridan's philosophy and its relation to theology, before turning attention to his theory of relation. Finally he addresses particular forms of relation (identity, analogy, causality, etc.). FR Alle zentralen Begriffe der Philosophie enthalten ein relationales Moment. Die Frage, welche Wirklichkeit Relationen zukommt, bildet daher eine der Kernfragen des philosophischen Denkens. Dies gilt in besonderem Mae fur den Nominalismus. Das Werk widmet sich Johannes Buridan, dessen uberragende Bedeutung im spaten Mittelalter und fur die Herausbildung der neuzeitlichen Wissenschaft zwar anerkannt, dessen Schriften aber noch langst nicht erschlossen sind. Wie bestimmt der Nominalist Buridan den ontologischen Status von Relationen? Wie verhalt sich seine Relationstheorie zu anderen in seiner Zeit, wie etwa William Ockham oder Gregor von Rimini? Die Frage nach der Wirklichkeit von Relationen ist aber nicht allein als experimentum crucis des Nominalismus von Interesse, sondern auch deshalb, weil Buridan in der Ethik haufig auf altere Traditionen zuruckgreift. In einem ersten Teil diskutiert das Buch die Relationstheorien von Thomas von Aquin bis Gregor von Rimini und wendet sich dann nach ausfuhrlichen Darstellung der Grundform der buridanischen Philosophie und ihrem Verhaltnis zur Theologie seiner Relationstheorie zu. Abschlieend werden einzelne Relationen (Identitat, Analogie, Kausalitat, etc.) vorgefuhrt. CURRIC. Rolf Schonberger, Promotion 1983, Habilitation 1990, ist gegenwartig Professor fur Philosophie an der Padagogischen Hochschule Weingarten; er hat Arbeiten zum mittelalterlichen Seinsbegriff, zur Handlungstheorie des Thomas von Aquin und zum Begriff der Scholastik veroffentlicht.
