Summary:

Dans La force de l'âge, Simone de Beauvoir a raconté comment, de 1935 à 1937, elle a écrit Quand prime le spirituel, son premier livre, resté longtemps inédit. 'Je résolus cette fois de composer des récits brefs. Je me limiterais aux choses, aux gens que je connaissais ; j'essaierais de rendre sensible une vérité que j'avais personnellement éprouvée. J'indiquais le thème par un titre ironiquement emprunté à Maritain. La première nouvelle décrit l'étiolement d'une jeune fille à l'institut Sainte-Marie. Dans la seconde, je m'amusais à imaginer, chez une adulte, la dégradation de la religiosité en chiennerie. Dans la troisième, l'héroïne, par son entêtement à jouer un rôle, jetait dans des désastres deux jeunes élèves qui l'admiraient. J'avais réussi à rendre cette distance de soi à soi qu'est la mauvaise foi. Dans la quatrième, je tentai à nouveau de ressusciter Zaza. J'échouai. Cinquième nouvelle : une satire de ma jeunesse. Mon enfance au cours Désir et la crise religieuse de mon adolescence. Ce récit était de loin le meilleur... Sartre en approuva de nombreux passages.'

Summary:

La mort est souvent perçue comme une injustice, un échec, une souffrance continue. L’allongement de l’espérance de vie dans nos sociétés occidentales, qui nous a éloignés des réalités de notre condition de mortels, y est assurément pour quelque chose. La pratique médicale aussi, qui a tendance à multiplier les soins et les traitements coûte que coûte, même quand l’espoir n’est plus permis.Face à cet état de fait, le chirurgien Atul Gawande s’interroge sur la mort et les limites de la médecine, et pose une question fondamentale : au crépuscule d’une vie, comment continuer à mener une existence aussi riche que possible ? Nombre de solutions existent, et une structure adaptée permet de gagner en qualité de vie. Atul Gawande l’illustre en racontant des histoires, parfois bouleversantes, et livre un véritable plaidoyer pour une médecine qui saurait écouter et discuter avec les patients de leurs désirs et de leurs peurs. À travers son approche humaniste de la question de la fin de vie, Atul Gawande a provoqué un vrai phénomène aux États-Unis, démontrant que la mort peut être apprivoisée et acceptée, et que l’on peut profiter jusqu’à la fin d’une vie pleine de sens, de satisfactions et de plaisirs. Traduit de l’anglais (États-Unis) par Odile DemangeAtul Gawande est un chirurgien américain réputé, professeur de médecine et rédacteur pour le New Yorker. Ses précédents ouvrages, Complications, Better et The Checklist Manifesto ont rencontré un très grand succès aux États-Unis.

Summary:

Les écrits de Gandhi, à la fois autobiographiques et philosophiques, nous font connaître un de ces hommes qui ont marqué notre siècle. Son génie tient à la manière dont il a su transposer la non-violence de la grande tradition indienne du domaine de la morale personnelle à celui de l'action publique. Il a vécu lui-même cette transmission à une telle profondeur qu'il a pu lui donner une valeur exemplaire au-delà d'une expérience individuelle.

Summary:

The aim of this series is to inform both professional philosophers and a larger readership (of social and natural scientists, methodologists, mathematicians, students, teachers, publishers, etc.) about what is going on, who's who, and who does what in contemporary philosophy and logic. PROFILES is designed to present the research activity and the results of already outstanding personalities and schools and of newly emerging ones in the various fields of philosophy and logic. There are many Festschrift volumes dedicated to various philosophers. There is the celebrated Library of Living Philosophers edited by P. A. Schilpp whose format influenced the present enterprise. Still they can only cover very little of the contemporary philosophical scene. Faced with a tremendous expansion of philosophical information and with an almost frightening division of labor and increasing specialization we need systematic and regular ways of keeping track of what happens in the profession. PROFILES is intended to perform such a function. Each volume is devoted to one or several philosophers whose views and results are presented and discussed. The profiled philosopher(s) will summarize and review his (their) own work in the main fields of significant contribution. This work will be discussed and evaluated by invited contributors. Relevant historical and/or biographical data, an up-to-date bibliography with short abstracts of the most important works and, whenever possible, references to significant reviews and discussions will also be included.

Summary:

'Nobody reads Mill today,' wrote a reviewer in Time magazine a few years ago. ! One could scarcely praise Mr Melvin Maddocks, who penned that remark, for his awareness of the present state of Mill studies, for of all nineteenth century philosophers who wrote in English, it is 1. S. Mill who remains the most read today. Yet it would not be so far from the truth to say that very few people pay much serious attention nowadays to Mill's writings about logic and metaphysics (as distinct from those on ethical and social issues), despite the fact that Mill put enormous effort into their composition and through them exerted a considerable influen ce on the course of European philosophy for the rest of his century. But the only sections of A System of Logic (1843) and An Examination of Sir William Hamilton's Philosophy (1865) to which much reference is now made comprise only a small proportion of those very large books, and the prevailing assumption is that Mill's theories about logical and meta physical questions are, with few exceptions, of merely antiquarian in terest. Bertrand Russell once said that Mill's misfortune was to be born at the wrong time (Russell (1951), p. 2). It can certainly appear that Mill chose an inauspicious time to attempt a major work on logic.

Summary:

1. A WORD ABOUT PRESUPPOSITIONS This book is addressed to philosophers, and not necessarily to those philosophers whose interests and competence are largely mathematical or logical in the formal sense. It deals for the most part with problems in the theory of partial judgment. These problems are naturally formulated in numerical and logical terms, and it is often not easy to formulate them precisely otherwise. Indeed, the involvement of arithmetical and logical concepts seems essential to the philosophies of mind and action at just the point where they become concerned with partial judgment and" belief. I have tried throughout to use no mathematics that is not quite elementary, for the most part no more than ordinary arithmetic and algebra. There is some rudimentary and philosophically important employment of limits, but no use is made of integrals or differentials. Mathematical induction is rarely and inessentially employed in the text, but is more frequent and important in the apP'endix on set theory and Boolean algebra. • As far as logic is concerned, the book assumes a fair acquaintance with predicate logic and its techniques. The concepts of compactness and maximal consistency turn out to have important employment, which I have tried to keep self-contained, so that extensive knowledge of meta logical topics is not assumed. In a word, the book presupposes no more logical facility than is customary among working philosophers and graduate students, though it may call for unaccustomed vigor in its application.

Summary:

In his essay on 'Broad on Induction and Probability' (first published in 1959, reprinted in this volume), Professor G. H. von Wright writes: "If Broad's writings on induction have remained less known than some of his other contributions to philosophy . . . , one reason for this is that Broad never has published a book on the subject. It is very much to be hoped that, for the benefit of future students, Broad's chief papers on induction and probability will be collected in a single volume . . . . " The present volume attempts to perform this service to future students of induction and probability. The suggestion of publishing a volume of this kind in Synthese Library was first made by Professor Donald Davidson, one of the editors of the Library, and was partly prompted by Professor von Wright's statement. In carrying out this suggestion, the editors of Synthese Library have had the generous support of Professor Broad who has among other things supplied a new Addendum to 'The Principles of Problematic Induction' and corrected a number of misprints found in the first printings of this paper. The editors gratefully acknow ledge Professor Broad's help and encouragement. A bibliography of Professor Broad's writings (up to 1959) has been compiled by Dr. C. Lewy and has appeared in P. A. Schilpp, editor, The Philosophy of C. D. Broad (The Library of Living Philosophers), pp. 833-852.

Summary:

Logical Atomism is a philosophy that sought to account for the world in all its various aspects by relating it to the structure of the language in which we articulate information. In The Philosophy of Logical Atomism, Bertrand Russell, with input from his young student Ludwig Wittgenstein, developed the concept and argues for a reformed language based on pure logic. Despite Russell’s own future doubts surrounding the concept, this founding and definitive work in analytical philosophy by one of the world’s most significant philosophers is a remarkable attempt to establish a novel way of thinking.
