Download El Sentido de la historia : ensayo filosófico sobre los by Nikolaj Aleksandrovič Berdiaev ; Berdiaeff ; Berdyaev PDF

By Nikolaj Aleksandrovič Berdiaev ; Berdiaeff ; Berdyaev

Traducción de los angeles Editorial Araluce, Barcelona, 1946.

"Entre los angeles amplia gama de intereses filosóficos de Berdiaev, los angeles filosofía de los angeles historia ocupa un lugar preeminente, tanto por l. a. cantidad de obras dedicadas a ella (El sentido de l. a. historia, los angeles filosofía de los angeles desigualdad, los angeles nueva Edad Media, etc.), como por los angeles temática misma, que aparece en los angeles mayoría de sus escritos. los angeles obra que aquí presentamos fue escrita durante su exilio de Berlín e hizo célebre en Occidente a su autor (fue traducida al francés en 1949). Más que de filosofía de los angeles historia, trata de historiosofía, y busca en las profundidades del ser (de Dios) los orígenes, los angeles razón de ser, las leyes, los avalares, el significado y los angeles finalidad del drama de los angeles historia. Tomando como modelo las «primeras» filosofías de l. a. historia (el Libro de Daniel y l. a. Civitas Dei, de S. Agustín), ve en lo «histórico» los angeles manifestación de lo «metafísico», pone al descubierto las insuficiencias del método «ilustrado» en lo que respecta al estudio de los angeles historia, del cual reconoce los indiscutibles méritos científicos, a los angeles vez que muestra las insolubles aporías. Para Berdiaev, el iluminismo es un momento presente en toda época histórica, un momento dialéticamente inevitable, pero que debe ser superado, si queremos alcanzar una comprensión de l. a. historia. Sin ignorar las reservas de los angeles crítica histórica, Berdiaev se esfuerza apasionadamente por rehabilitar los angeles tradición histórica y el mito como las verdaderas fuentes de los angeles comprensión histórica, con lo cual se anticipa a ciertos autores occidentales, como Jung y Jaspers. Pone de relieve l. a. insuficiencia de l. a. comprensión histórica subyacente al mundo helénico, a los angeles cual contrapone los angeles comprensión judeo-cristiana, y en este punto también es un pionero.

Para Berdiaev, los angeles historia comienza en el seno mismo de l. a. Divinidad, y el hombre, a través de su propia historia, participa en este drama divino-humano. Sólo en Dios es posible comprender el tiempo y los angeles eternidad, el principio y el fin. En normal, el análisis del tiempo constituye uno de los momentos sobresalientes de esta obra; por el contrario, su comprensión de l. a. Divinidad (que guarda grandes semejanzas con los angeles de Böhme), aunque sugestiva, resulta más problemática.
Un capítulo especial y unique viene dedicado al destino del pueblo hebreo, con su grandeza y sus límites, con su función preparatoria del cristianismo y... del socialismo.

Según Berdiaev (que en esto sigue a Schelling), sólo en el cristianismo se da una comprensión plena y exhaustiva del misterio de l. a. historia, entre cuyos aspectos originales (que son muchos) destaca el de haber liberado al hombre del terror a las fuerzas de los angeles naturaleza, preparando así el advenimiento de l. a. ciencia moderna y de los angeles técnica. También aquí aparecen barruntos que anticipan el debate sobre el secularismo, tan de moda hoy."

"En suma, se trata de un libro que, después de casi cincuenta años, no ha perdido su actualidad, circunstancia que, por sí sola, acredita l. a. validez de sus planteamientos. Por otra parte, constituye un esbozo de lo que el autor ha desarrollado después en otras obras, pero un esbozo completo y elocuente en sí mismo, que nos da los angeles medida del genio de Berdiaev, cuya fuerza no estuvo nunca en l. a. precisión de los angeles investigación, l. a. multitud de citas bibliográficas, el aparato crítico, el trabajo de detalle.
