Why is There Something Rather Than Nothing? Penguin

Can nature make us happy? How can we know anything? What is justice? Why is there evil in the world? What is the source of truth? Is it possible for God not to exist? Can we really believe what we see? There are questions that have intrigued the world's great thinkers over the ages, which still touch a cord in all of us today. They are questions that can teach us about the way we live, work, relate to each other and see the world. Here, one of the world's greatest living philosophers, Leszek Kolakowski, explores the essence of these ideas, introducing figures from Socrates to Thomas Aquinas, Descartes to Nietzsche and concentrating on one single important philosophical question from each of them. Whether reflecting on good and evil, truth and beauty, faith and the soul, or free will and consciousness, Kolakowski shows that these timeless ideas remain at the very core of our existence.

Why should there be anything at all? Why, in particular, should a material world exist? Bede Rundle advances clear, non-technical answers to these perplexing questions. If, as the theist maintains, God is a being who cannot but exist, his existence explains why there is something rather than nothing. However, this can also be explained on the basis of a weaker claim. Not that there is some particular being that has to be, but simply that there has to be something or other. Rundle proffers arguments for thinking that that is indeed how the question is to be put to rest. Traditionally, the existence of the physical universe is held to depend on God, but the theist faces a major difficulty in making clear how a being outside space and time, as God is customarily conceived to be, could stand in an intelligible relation to the world, whether as its creator or as the author of events within it. Rundle argues that a creator of physical reality is not required, since there is no alternative to its existence. There has to be something, and a physical universe is the only real possibility. He supports this claim by eliminating rival contenders; he dismisses the supernatural, and argues that, while other forms of being, notably the abstract and the mental, are not reducible to the physical, they presuppose its existence. The question whether ultimate explanations can ever be given is forever in the background, and the book concludes with an investigation of this issue and of the possibility that the universe could have existed for an infinite time. Other topics discussed include causality, space, verifiability, essence, existence, necessity, spirit, fine tuning, and laws of Nature. Why There Is Something Rather Than Nothing offers an explanation of fundamental facts of existence in purely philosophical terms, without appeal either to theology or cosmology. It will provoke and intrigue anyone who wonders about these questions.

All for Nothing MIT Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A specter is haunting philosophy -- the specter of Hamlet. Why is this? Wherefore? What should we do? Entering from stage left: the philosopher's Hamlet. The philosopher's Hamlet is a conceptual character, played by philosophers rather than actors. He performs not in the theater but within the space of philosophical positions. In All for Nothing, Andrew Cutrofello critically examines the performance history of this unique role. The philosopher's Hamlet personifies negativity. In Shakespeare's play, Hamlet's speech and action are characteristically negative; he is the melancholy Dane. Most would agree that he has nothing to be cheerful about. Philosophers have taken Hamlet to embody specific forms of negativity that first came into view in modernity. What the figure of the Sophist represented for Plato, Hamlet has represented for modern philosophers. Cutrofello analyzes five aspects of Hamlet's negativity: his melancholy, negative faith, nihilism, tarrying (which Cutrofello distinguishes from "delaying"), and nonexistence. Along the way, we meet Hamlet in the texts of Kant, Coleridge, Hegel, Marx, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Freud, Russell, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Benjamin, Arendt, Schmitt, Lacan, Deleuze, Foucault, Derrida, Badiou, Zizek, and other philosophers. Whirling across a kingdom of infinite space, the philosopher's Hamlet is nothing if not thought-provoking.

Why Does the World Exist? PROFILE BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'Why is there a world rather than nothing at all?' remains the most curious and most enduring of all metaphysical mysteries. Moving away from the narrower paths of Christopher Hitchens, Roger Penrose and Stephen Hawking, the celebrated essayist Jim Holt now enters this fascinating debate with his broad, lively and deeply informed narrative that traces all our efforts to grasp the origins of the universe. With sly humour and a highly original personal approach Holt takes on the role of cosmological detective. Suggesting that we might have been too narrow in limiting our suspects to God and the Big Bang, he tracks down, among others, an eccentric Oxford philosopher, a Nobel Laureate physicist, a French Buddhist monk, and John Updike just before he died, to pursue this cosmic puzzle from every angle. As he pieces together a solution - while offering useful insights into time, consciousness, and eternity - he sheds fascinating new light on the meaning of existence. A New York Times bestseller on first publication, this new paperback edition provides a much-needed new take on history's greatest conundrum, in the vein of previous bestsellers like Michael Brooks' 13 Things that Don't Make Sense.

Wszechświat z niczego. Dlaczego istnieje raczej coś niż nic - Lawrence Krauss

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - Odważna i kontrowersyjna książka Lawrence`a M. Kraussa stanowi dla czytelników zainteresowanych fizyką i kosmologią takie samo wyzwanie, jakim dla zainteresowanych biologią były książki Richarda Dawkinsa. Zbieżność tę podkreśla wyraźnie posłowie, w którym autor "Samolubnego genu" stwierdza, że "Wszechświat z niczego" to w dziedzinie kosmologii ekwiwalent śmiertelnego ciosu, jakim dla supernaturalizmu w biologii było "O powstawaniu gatunków" Darwina. "Tytuł wyraża dokładnie to, co jest napisane. A to, co jest napisane, jest druzgocące" - pisze Dawkins.Jednak "Wszechświat z niczego" to nie tylko wspaniała polemika, ale przede wszystkim potężna dawka wiedzy na temat przyszłości naszego Wszechświata, opartej na najnowszych osiągnięciach fizyki, z odkryciem pola Higgsa na pierwszym miejscu, i przekazywanej w sposób prosty, niebanalny i z dużą dawką humoru. Ostatnio opublikowano wiele świetnych książek o kosmologii, w tym tylko kilka tak zaawansowanych, lecz żadnej, która z taką swadą - jak "Wszechświat z niczego" - zgłębiałaby zagadnienie, dlaczego niepotrzebne jest przywoływanie Boga do podpalenia lontu i wprawienia świata w ruch."Financial Times"Opisana przez Kraussa niestabilna nicość jest inspirująca, ponieważ w tej nicości można ujrzeć i zrozumieć wiele wspaniałych rzeczy."Nature"Lawrence M. Krauss jest światowej sławy fizykiem teoretykiem, zaangażowanym w badania dotyczące kosmologii, a także cząstek elementarnych. Pracuje na Wydziale Fizyki Uniwersytetu Stanowego Arizony, jest również dyrektorem kilku interdyscyplinarnych projektów naukowych.Wielokrotnie nagradzany za swoje badania oraz działalność popularyzatorską, jest jedynym laureatem nagród trzech głównych amerykańskich towarzystw fizycznych: American Physical Society, American Association of Physics Teachers i American Institute of Physics.

Weegies v Edingbuggers(Men) B&W PUBLISHING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

There's a slogan that Glaswegians use when talking about Edinburgh's world-famous joie de vivre: 'Edinburgh! A castle, a smile and a song...One out of three isn't bad.' Edinburghers retaliate by talking of why all the Wise Men come from the East and all the cowboys from the West. So we have the Far East, the Wild West and an apparently unbridgeable gulf in between, usually called Falkirk. These are the jokes, the songs and the stories of why citizens of these two great cities would rather take Osama bin Laden home for tea than a Weegie or an Edinbugger, citizens of no mean cities though they be. Except, of course, traditionally, there is no request to tea in Edinburgh, more of a statement delivered without a question mark, as in 'You'll have had your tea.' And 'pal' is the unfriendliest word there is in Glasgow. When a Glaswegian asks, 'Ur you lookin' at me, pal?', you would be very naive indeed to think of it as a question or that the deliverer is intent on making friends. It is, in fact, a statement meaning something like, 'Unless you come up with a smart reply sharpish, I'm going to attempt to remove your head from your shoulders with any weapon that comes to hand. Or my teeth.' There's nothing rational about it. Weegies know that all Edinburghers are just poncing about all day pretending to be flowers and waiting for dark to get up Calton Hill because, without exception, they like their vice versa. And Edinbuggers know that, in Weegie families, father, mother and sister often don't add up to three, but that they do keep their chibs sharp, whatever a chib might be. There are hard hits from both sides, sharp jibes and bludgeoning diatribes, but it's just friendly rivalry really. To use the double positive negative, a figure of speech unique to Scotland, 'Aye, right.'
