Reapprendre a Voir Le Monde: Merleau-Ponty Face Au Miroir Lacanien
La vraie philosophie est de rapprendre voir le monde, et en ce sens une histoire racont e peut signifier le monde avec autant de p- fondeur qu'un trait de philosophie. Nous prenons en main notre sort, nous devenons responsables de notre histoire par la r flexion, mais aussi bien par une d cision o nous engageons notre vie, et dans les deux cas 1 il s'agit d'un acte violent qui se v rifie en s'exer ant . Notre tude aura pour t che d' lucider ce passage, crit par Maurice Merleau-Ponty dans l'avant-propos de sa Ph nom nologie de la perception. S'agit-il d'une nouvelle notion de la philosophie comme apprentissage, non seulement d'un regard th orique sur le monde, mais aussi et surtout d'un regard engag , un regard qui est d j dans le monde ? La philosophie pourra- elle nous apprendre comment prendre en main notre sort , comment faire de notre histoire personnelle une histoire racont e, invent e et cr e par la r flexion ? Quelle pourrait donc tre cette r flexion en tant qu'acte violent ? Est-ce une philosophie qui se m le la vie, qui se confond avec elle tout en la rappelant, en la r apprenant, une fa on oubli e de regarder qui est en m me temps une fa on oubli e de vivre ? Et de quelle vie s'agit-il ? Celle du philosophe m me, de ses lecteurs ou de l'homme en tant que tel ? Ce sont ces questions qui vont nous occuper dans les pages qui

Jaakko Hintikka Selected Papers (Set)
Vol. 1: Ludwig Wittgenstein: Half-Truths and One-and-a-Half-Truths Because of his legendary impatience, Wittgenstein's published books are focused on his solutions to his latest problems and consequently often fail to explain not only his earlier solutions but also his problem situation. In the essays collected in this volume, Jaakko Hintikka counteracts the difficulty which this peculiarity of Wittgenstein's poses to his readers by analysing in depth the crucial stages of Wittgenstein's philosophical career and the relation of his ideas to those of other philosophers, especially Russell, Carnap and Husserl, with sometimes surprising results. Vol. 2: Lingua Universalis vs. Calculus Ratiocinator Twentieth-century philosophy has tacitly been dominated by a deep contrast between universalist and model-theoretical visions of language. The role of this contrast is studied here in Peirce, Frege, Wittgenstein, Carnap, Quine, Husserl, Heidegger and in the development of logical theory. Hintikka also develops a new approach to truth-definitions which strongly supports the model-theoretical view. Vol. 3: Language, Truth and Logic in Mathematics The foundations of mathematics are examined by reference to such crucial concepts as the informational independence of quantifiers, the standard-nonstandard distinction, completeness, computability, parallel processing and the extremality of models. Vol. 4: Paradigms for Language Theory and Other Essays Several of the basic ideas of current language theory are subjected to critical scrutiny and found wanting, including the concept of scope, the hegemony of generative syntax, the Frege-Russell claim that verbs like `is' are ambiguous, and the assumptions underlying the so-called New Theory of Reference. In their stead, new constructive ideas are proposed. Vol. 5: Inquiry as Inquiry: A Logic of Scientific Discovery In the essays collected here, Hintikka both defends and outlines a genuine logic of scientific discovery, the logic of questions and answers. Thus inquiry in the sense of knowledge-seeking becomes inquiry in the sense of interrogation. Using this new logic, Hintikka establishes a result that will undoubtedly be considered the fundamental theorem of all epistemology, viz., the virtual identity of optimal strategies of pure discovery with optimal deductive strategies. Vol. 6: Analyses of Aristotle This collection comprises several striking interpretations of Aristotle's logic and methodology that Jaakko Hintikka has put forward over the years, constituting a challenge not only to Aristotelian scholars and historians of ideas, but to everyone interested in logic, epistemology or metaphysics and in their history.
