Tu ne tueras point : Réflexions sur l'actualité de by Corine Pelluchon

By Corine Pelluchon

L'interdiction du meurtre a un sens même en l'absence de toute référence à un Dieu transcendant et à l'idée selon laquelle los angeles vie humaine serait sacrée. Bien plus, l. a. justification de cette norme par des valeurs morales et l'effort pour los angeles fonder rationnellement l'affaiblissent. Malgré l'apport majeur de Kant à l. a. morale, son examine consistant à rapprocher les devoirs envers soi-même des devoirs envers autrui passe à côté de los angeles violence propre au meurtre et criminalise le suicide. Au contraire, en faisant de l'expérience de mon rapport à l'autre los angeles resource de l'éthique, los angeles description du meurtre, qui renvoie à los angeles volonté d'anéantir l'autre comme tel, permet de dégager l'essence de los angeles violence qui est un faire taire. Il y a donc dans le « tu ne tueras aspect » plus qu'une prohibition de l'homicide volontaire. Affirmer l'actualité de cet interdit, c'est rappeler le sens des crimes imprescriptibles tout en invitant à prendre los angeles mesure de ce qu'impliquent les guerres qui ne sont pas des génocides. C'est aussi préconiser des recommendations adaptées aux problèmes qui se posent au début et à los angeles fin de l. a. vie, comme on le voit avec l'avortement, le suicide supporté et l'euthanasie. Enfin, c'est reconnaître que le droit absolu que nous nous octroyons sur les animaux relève d'une transgression.

Truth and Truthfulness: An Essay in Genealogy by Bernard Williams

By Bernard Williams

What does it suggest to be honest? What function does fact play in our lives? What can we lose if we reject truthfulness? No thinker is healthier fitted to solution those questions than Bernard Williams. Writing along with his attribute mixture of ardour and chic simplicity, he explores the worth of fact and unearths it to be either much less and greater than we would imagine.

Modern tradition shows attitudes towards fact: suspicion of being deceived (no one desires to be fooled) and skepticism that goal fact exists in any respect (no one desires to be naive). This stress among a requirement for truthfulness and the doubt that there's any fact to be stumbled on isn't an summary paradox. It has political effects and signs a hazard that our highbrow actions, really within the humanities, may well tear themselves to pieces.

Williams's process, within the culture of Nietzsche's family tree, blends philosophy, background, and a fictional account of ways the human crisis with fact may need arisen. with out denying that we should always fear in regards to the contingency of a lot that we take with no consideration, he defends fact as an highbrow goal and a cultural price. He identifies simple virtues of fact, Accuracy and Sincerity, the 1st of which goals at checking out the reality and the second one at telling it. He describes assorted mental and social kinds that those virtues have taken and asks what principles could make most sensible experience of them today.

Truth and Truthfulness offers a robust problem to the modern trust that fact has no price, yet both to the conventional religion that its worth promises itself. Bernard Williams indicates us that after we lose a feeling of the worth of fact, we lose much either politically and in my view, and should good lose everything.
