Acta Biológica Colombiana , 2009,
Abstract: in this paper, similarities and differences between the conceptions of nature of darwin and goethe are discussed by three german philosophers: friedrich nietzsche, ernst cassirer and georg simmel. the discussion focuses mainly on two issues: first, recognition of the historical method of quirky functional shift by the three philosophers, as a structural principle of historical methodology and second, recognition of differences in explanatory approaches, the goethe morphological and the darwinian functionalism. cassirer and nietzsche integrate into their philosophies morphological aspects of goethe?s theory, and while recognizing the importance of darwin?s theory of historical explanation, reject what they consider the permanence of teleological explanation in the theory of darwin. moreover, simmel establishes a relationship between the ideas of goethe and darwin, via the concept of action, through this, attempts to dissolve the dichotomy formalism-functionalism.
Simmel no Brasil
Waizbort, Leopoldo;
Dados , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0011-52582007000100002
Abstract: simmel?s presence in the social sciences in brazil is varied and longstanding. this article attempts to indicate some of the forms of appropriation, reception, and importation of his ideas and writings, visiting various brazilian social scientists who are in some way considered illustrative of the underlying questions and seeking to demonstrate the multiplicity of forms and modes of relations they establish with simmel?s work. from this point of view, the research allows tracing a history of sociology in brazil.
Cassirer’s View of Language
Ying Shen
International Education Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ies.v2n3p23
Abstract: Myth is the breakthrough point of Cassirer’s philosophy; Art is one of key words to understand his defined language; and Symbolism infiltrates into all aspects of human cultures especially language. The shift of Cassirer from great theories of science and philosophy to the world of art, language, myth, and culture mirrors his bold and imaginative analyses of human culture and language.
The Simmel effect and babies names  [PDF]
M. J. Krawczyk,A. Dydejczyk,K. Kulakowski
Computer Science , 2012, DOI: 10.1016/j.physa.2013.10.018
Abstract: Simulations of the Simmel effect are performed for agents in a scale-free social network. The social hierarchy of an agent is determined by the degree of her node. Particular features, once selected by a highly connected agent, became common in lower class but soon fall out of fashion and extinct. Numerical results reflect the dynamics of frequency of American babies names in 1880-2011.
Linguaggio, segno simbolo. L'anti-ontologia di Ernst Cassirer
Hans Joerg Sandkuehler
Rivista Internazionale di Filosofia e Psicologia , 2010,
Abstract: Language, Sign, Symbol. The Anti-ontology of Ernst Cassirer - This paper investigates the role of language and the function of science in Ernst Cassirer’s theory of knowledge. Cassirer’s position is interpreted in a constructivistic way: language is presented as a complex system of signs arbitrarily produced by the human mind to imbue the world with sense and meaning. Indeed, Cassirer’s theory is proposed as an ideal model for that part of the contemporary epistemology which agrees with the general principles of pluralism, but intends at the same time to stay away from sceptical, relativistic and subjectivistic temptations which are very popular in our time.
Goethe und die Kindsm rderin Goethe and the Child Murderer  [cached]
Ursula Künning
querelles-net , 2005,
Abstract: Am 28. November 1783 wurde in Weimar die vierundzwanzigj hrige Dienstmagd Johanna Catharina H hn wegen der T tung ihres neugeborenen Kindes hingerichtet. Ma geblich beteiligt am Todesurteil war Johann Wolfgang von Goethe als Mitglied des Beratungsgremiums des Herzogs von Weimar Carl Gustav. u erst kritisch beurteilt Rüdiger Scholz in seinem Text die Goetherezeption, die bis in die Gegenwart hinein den Schriftsteller idealisiert und Rechtfertigungen für seine Mitwirkung am Schicksal der Johanna Catharina H hn sucht. On the 28th of November, 1783, the 24-year old maidservant Johanna Catharina H hn was executed for the murder of her new-born child. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was significantly involved in the death sentencing as a member of the advisory body of Carl Gustav, the Duke of Weimar. In his text, Rüdiger Scholz very critically condemns Goethe reception that has, up to the present day, idealized and searched for justification for Goethe’s hand in Johanna Catharina H hn’s fate.
Cassirer e Sartre sobre o esclarecimento
Figueiredo, Vinicius de;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2005000200006
Abstract: this paper aims at throwing some light on the eighteenth-century aesthetics. after examining two classical interpretations - cassirer e sartre's - concerning this subject, i argue that both authors share a common analytical pressupposition. my main purpose is to show that without taking account of the the relationship between author and public, we cannot understand some essential characteristics of the literature in the enlightenment.
Mythe et technique. Autour de Cassirer
Edouard Jolly
Meta : Research in Hermeneutics, Phenomenology and Practical Philosophy , 2010,
Abstract: This article aims at analyzing the symbolic form which is technology in its relation with myth so as to examine its anthropological and political consequences. Technology, as opening of the possible, overrunning the imitation of nature and “emancipation with respect to organic barriers” turns the descriptive question “what is this” in the normative one, “what could this be?”. Man builds his horizon of objects, creates his world and the intuition of his own essence, by living in the field of possibility opened by technology. Thus, obeying the laws of nature has to be always “re-formed” and “reasserted”: it is changing. Passing from forma formata to forma formans, from having become to the principle of becoming, Cassirer invites us to establish a criticism of technology neither for the purpose of analyzing his works, nor for searching a historical essence. The purpose is to update the aim for the set up, change of sense and aspect of the world in the process of technological exteriorization.
Cassirer y Gadamer: El arte como símbolo
Montero Pachano,Patricia Carolina;
Revista de Filosofía , 2005,
Abstract: there have been recollected in this paper some observations related to the referential nature of symbolism, according to cassirer and gadamer?s considerations. the issue is to determine if abstraction takes off art?s mimetic character and, therefore, its symbolic nature; in view of that the symbol has being assumed sometimes as an indicator of the known world.
Between light and eye: Goethe's science of color and the polar phenomenology of nature  [PDF]
Alex Kentsis
Physics , 2005,
Abstract: In his interviews with Eckermann in the 1820s, Goethe referred to his Theory of Colors as his greatest and ultimate achievement. Its reception following publication in 1810 and subsequent reviews throughout the history of physical science did not reflect this self-assessment. Even Hermann von Helmholtz, who in part modeled his scientific work after Goethe's, initially thought that Goethe's poetic genius prevented him from understanding physical science. Why did Goethe champion his Farbenlehre so ardently even years after it was dismissed by almost everyone else? In answering this question, this essay will attempt to add to the existing scholarship by considering Goethe's Theory of Colors in the context of his natural philosophy, and generalizing the variety of objectifications of the concepts invoked by his color theory and their relationships to Goethe's epistemology and Newton's mechanics. In this fashion, I attempt to show that the reason for Goethe's self-assessment of his Theory of Colors is less enigmatic than appears from its examination solely as a work of physics. Rather, Zur Farbenlehre was the clearest expression of Goethe's most universal archetype-- polarity of opposites-- which bridged Goethe's conflicts with Kant's and Spinoza's epistemologies, and in an over-reaching way served as a cosmology underlying Goethe's art and his science.
