Download Illuminismo estremo. Controstoria della filosofia IV by Michel Onfray PDF

By Michel Onfray

In questo nuovo quantity della sua Controstoria, Onfray demolisce il mito di un Illuminismo razionalista e materialista, denunciando il carattere assai moderato o persino retrivo di alcuni fra i suoi più celebrati esponenti, e tracciando inedite demarcazioni fra i «buoni» materialisti e edonisti e i «cattivi» idealisti del secolo dei Lumi. Anche se messi all’Indice dal Sant’Uffizio, Voltaire e in fondo anche Diderot rimangono infatti deisti e antiatei, vincolati in maniera ambigua ai ricatti della trascendenza. Kant? Misogino e in step with di più razzista, come Diderot e Buffon. Sade? Un protofascista, che predica los angeles sopraffazione, lo sfruttamento e il disgusto del corpo. Rousseau poi, oltre che criptoidealista, è un reazionario luddista, contrario alla scienza e favorevole alla cieca obbedienza e all’ignoranza del popolo.
Chi è da salvare sono invece gli esponenti di una corrente minore e storicamente perdente dell’Illuminismo "estremista": pensatori come Meslier, los angeles Mettrie, Maupertuis, Helvétius, d’Holbach.
