A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This study of axiology explores the axiocentricity of being human. Human beings dwell in the realm of value. Values are not simply what persons have; values in large part are what persons are. The mystique of values is analyzed here in terms of their cultural, phenomenological, and ontological status. The relationship between science and values is debated. Values should not be submitted to reductionism. Postmodernism raises new problems for the future of a philosophy of values. Yet, we may direct our hopes toward happiness, universalism, and humanism as inseparable from value-life. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9789042006706

Synopsis :

This study of axiology explores the axiocentricity of being human. Human beings dwell in the realm of value. Values are not simply what persons have; values in large part are what persons are. The mystique of values is analyzed here in terms of their cultural, phenomenological, and ontological status. The relationship between science and values is debated.

About the Author:

Ludwig Grunberg (1933-1995) graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Bucharest, Romania in 1955, with a Merit Diploma. He obtained his Doctor's Degree in 1962 and became a Doctor's Degree consultant in 1971. He was a Professor of Philosophy at the Academy of Economic Studies, Bucharest. A teacher by vocation, Ludwig Grunberg endeavored to pass on to his students, including doctoral students, some of his own pathos in asking questions and searching for answers, some of his own respect and critical spirit with which he related to the great moments in the history of philosophy, some of his own aspiration toward self-realization, some of his own exactness and imagination with which he would conceive his ideas. Trying to set up a philosophical school in axiology, he was the leader of the Circle of Axiology in Bucharest in an adverse ideological time. Grunberg produced a significant number of university textbooks, lectures in philosophy, axiology, the history of philosophy, aesthetics, and general sociology. He was a member of the International Institute of Sociology since 1969, of the American Society for Value Inquiry since 1973, of the World Institute of Advanced Phenomenological Research and Learning, since 1980, and of the International Society for Universalism since 1993. Grunberg left behind a multitude of manuscripts on axiology, the history of art, the history of culture, as well as a significant number of essays on varied related themes. His major interests were axiology and the ontology of the human.
