Although the notion plays a central role in both philosophical systems, its meaning is slightly different. Hume's detailed epistemological analyzes make it possible to distinguish three planes of description in his philosophy: common-sense, mechanistic and phenomenalistic, with sympathy playing a different role in each of them. Smith saw the central importance of this concept in Hume's concept of mind and sentiments and adopted it in his theory of moral feelings, but lacks a subtle analysis of the "mechanics" of human thought. This deficiency, however, can be treated both as neglect. However, on the other hand - paradoxically - it allows us to perceive the doctrinaire character of Hume's concept resulting from the adoption of a physicalist model of the explication of human affectivity.</p> Adam Jerzy Grzeliński, Anna Markwart Copyright (c) 2022 Adam Jerzy Grzeliński, Anna Markwart https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/38413 Tue, 23 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Johannes Bobrowski und seine Kant-Erzählung https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/37276 <p><strong>Johannes Bobrowski i jego opowiadanie o Kancie</strong></p> <p>Johannes Bobrowski (ur. W Tylży, uczęszczał do Gimnazjum Miejskiego w Królewcu) obrał za „główny temat” swoich dzieł historyczno-kulturowe dziedzictwo swej ojczyzny. Jednym z jego historyczno-biograficznych odniesień do przeszłości jest opowiadanie „Epitafium dla Pinnaua”, gdzie rozmowa prowadzona na obiedzie u Kanta krąży wokół samobójstwa tego młodego księgowego i znajomego J. G. Hamanna. Tekst stanowi próbę podjęcia w tej perspektywie refleksji na temat filozoficznych postaw obu „krytycznych przyjaciół” – Kanta i Hamanna.</p> Dariusz Pakalski Copyright (c) 2022 Dariusz Pakalski https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/37276 Tue, 23 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Hannah Arendt and political economy by Jean-Jaques Rousseau https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/39554 <p>The text is a critical analysis of the objections made by Hannah Arendt against Rousseau. It shows how Rousseau’s concept of political economy fits into Arendt’s understanding of society. From this perspective, Rousseau turns out to be an ideologue of society. It manifests in the belief that it is not people but societies that inhabit the Earth. Arendt did not notice or at least did not consider Rousseau’s shift in perception of politics. Unlike the ancient Greeks, he did not regard man as a political being, but a natural one. Therefore, according to him politics requires external legitimization, that is given to it by morality and elementary biological needs. Nature, in turn, provides morality and politics with standards of law. Here, the general will proves to be a kind of social substitute in the context of natural laws’ absence.</p> Robert Rogoziecki Copyright (c) 2022 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/39554 Tue, 23 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Dialogiczny wymiar filozofii sztuki Hansa-Georga Gadamera https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/39552 <p><span style="font-family: Times New Roman, serif;">The article presents the results of research on the relationship between the philosophy of art by Hans-Georg Gadamer and the philosophy of dialogue. Play, symbol and festival are the three concepts of key importance to Gadamer's thought that Gadamer used in his ontology of works of art and that undergo analysis. Reinterpreted from the perspective of the philosophy of dialogue, the three categories reveal unique characteristics of Gadamer's hermeneutics: the striving to preserve the view of the other in dialogue; the role of ethics in interpersonal communication; the elitism of the dialogical relationship as well as a critique of the ideas of wholeness and totality. Thus, aesthetic experience appears as the pattern of the relationship between You and I.</span></p> Paweł Sznajder Copyright (c) 2022 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/39552 Tue, 23 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Translator`s Introduction https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/38668 Krzysztof Paweł Wawrzonkowski Copyright (c) 2022 Krzysztof Paweł Wawrzonkowski https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd/4.0 https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/38668 Tue, 23 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0200 O zmyśle lub smaku piękna https://apcz.umk.pl/szhf/article/view/39544 <p>Ninejszy przekład prezentuje fragment "An essay on Taste" Alexandra Gerarda.
