Wir Epigonen: Kultur und Kulturstaat (German Edition) by Albert Schweitzer,Ulrich Körtner,Johann Zürcher PDF

By Albert Schweitzer,Ulrich Körtner,Johann Zürcher

Albert Schweitzer als Kulturpessimist - Wir Epigonen erstmals veröffentlicht

Dieser erste kulturphilosophische Entwurf Albert Schweitzers, entstanden in der Umbruchzeit des Ersten Weltkriegs, ist ein ebenso eindrucksvolles wie erstaunliches kulturkritisches Dokument, das an Oswald Spenglers Untergang des Abendlandes denken läßt. Zur selben Zeit abgefaßt wie die Vorarbeiten zu Verfall und Wiederaufbau der Kultur sowie zu Kultur und Ethik, bietet Wir Epigonen eine wichtige Ergänzung und Interpretationshilfe zu Schweitzers Kulturphilosophie. Seit seiner Gymnasialzeit zweifelte Schweitzer am Fortschritt der Menschheit und hatte den Eindruck, manches Wertvolle der geistigen Überlieferung Europas komme in der Gegenwart nicht mehr zu seinem Recht. Nach seiner eigenen Aussage geht der Titel Wir Epigonen zurück auf eine 1899 im Hause Curtius in Berlin gefallene Bemerkung: "Wir sind ja doch alle nur Epigonen!" Damit sind die Erben einer großen Zeit gemeint, die über dem Bewahren und Mehren der überkommenen äußeren Güter die geistigen unbemerkt verloren haben. Das Werk, dem Schweitzer später den Titel Kultur und Kulturstaat gab, befaßt sich u.a. mit dem "Niedergang der Kultur", dem "Kulturstaat", dessen Entvölkerung er fürchtet, mit "Nichtkulturstaaten" sowie mit Fragen des Kolonialismus und der Rassentrennung. Die hier zum ersten Mal publizierten Texte spiegeln auf eindrucksvolle Weise die Grundstimmung eines Intellektuellen im damaligen Zusammenbruch des alten Europas wider und dokumentieren in wichtigen Punkten die Genese des Denkens von Albert Schweitzer.

Download e-book for kindle: Vergessene Weisheiten: Impulse für Glück, Erfolg und by Marcellus Hihn

By Marcellus Hihn

In der modernen Zeit fühlen wir uns immer mehr verloren und oft orientierungslos.
Jeden Tag gibt es neue traits und Lebensentwürfe.
Daher suchen immer mehr Menschen nach spirituellen Lehren, die Ihnen Halt, Struktur, eine Ausrichtung und Verlässlichkeit bieten. Sie möchten alle in stability mit sich selbst und ihrem Nächsten finden. Viele sind auf der Suche.
Warum nur im fernen Osten oder in zusammengewürfelten Lehren (Esoterik) nach Lösungen für Probleme suchen.
Was ist mit unserem kulturellen spirituellen Schatz z.B. der Bibel, der Dogmatik, den Exerzitien, der Scholastik, des ritterlichen Kodex, der Volksweisheiten. Wir Europäer haben eine so reichhaltige spirituelle Vergangenheit. Die leider in der Modernen oft falsch verstanden, angefeindet oder verdrängt wird.
Vorurteile bestimmen die Ablehnung unserer originären Weisheiten, Mentalität und Lehre.
Unser Geist liebt jedoch das Unsere um zu gesunden, denn nur unsere Weisheiten, Mentalität und Lehre sind uns durch soziokulturelle Prägung wirklich einsichtig. Davon bin ich überzeugt! Daher der Versuch dem Leser diese wieder näher zu bringen.
Die Bibel, das Christentum und unsere originäre Mentalität allgemein besitzen so viel Potenzial!
Kaum einer kennt das Unsere noch. In einer Zeit der Verrohung, des Atheismus und der empirisch wissenschaftlichen Intoleranz dem Transzendenten und dem Spirituellen gegenüber verlieren wir uns zunehmend selbst und suchen Erlösung in fremden spirituellen Systemen. Auch diese können Heil bringen, solange sie GUTES in sich tragen.
Es ist eine individuelle Suche nach der passenden Lehre.
Jeder Mensch soll seinen eigenen Weg zu seinem persönlichen Heil finden, dafür muss er aber auch NICHT - Mainstreamangebote kennen. Anders, um sich konstruktivistisch einen Weg auswählen zu können, muss er die verschiedenen Lehren erst einmal kennen lernen. So auch die UNSERE!
Diese kleine Sammlung für den täglichen Gebrauch ist mit Sicherheit kein Mainstream und natürlich nur ein Ausschnitt unserer originären Weisheiten, Lehre und Mentalität. Es werden mehrere Bücher entstehen, die allmählich das Bild verdichten werden. Es sind uralte meist biblische Sentenzen und Weisheiten in moderne Sprache und in Korrelation zur heutigen Welt gebracht. Sie öffnen auf jeden Fall Einblick in eine oft –leider- längst vergessene Spiritualität – UNSERE!
Für den einen Unsinn – für den anderen Heil!
Hier eine kleine Sammlung von Impulsen für unser tägliches Leben.
Herzliche Grüße
