By Søren Kierkegaard
En Berlín, entre noviembre de 1841 y febrero de 1842, Søren Kierkegaard asistió a las lecciones sobre l. a. Filosofía de los angeles Revelación impartidas por Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling. l. a. presente edición recoge los apuntes tomados por el pensador danés, un documento imprescindible para entender los angeles huella de Schelling en el giro que tomará l. a. producción kierkegaardiana hasta El concepto de l. a. angustia (1844). El viejo Schelling expone su concepto de filosofía positiva: una filosofía de l. a. existencia en los angeles que se orquesta su crítica a l. a. filosofía idealista de G. W. F. Hegel. El ideal-realismo del último Schelling servirá a Kierkegaard de orientación para su propia crítica a l. a. filosofía hegeliana. Se hace así eco de sus temas, como son l. a. importancia concedida por Schelling a l. a. mitología, l. a. necesidad de formular una verdadera filosofía de l. a. historia, el papel de l. a. Revelación y, sobre todo, los angeles radicalidad de los angeles angustia como fenómeno originario del drama de l. a. libertad en cuanto pura posibilidad. En este texto del joven Kierkegaard cabe hallar, por tanto, los angeles génesis de l. a. comprensión contemporánea de los angeles angustia.

Alan Goldman's purposes from inside of deals a folksy, available articulation and security of lifestyles Internalism approximately purposes, the thesis that the explanations a subject matter has needs to endure a few connection to that individual subject's motivations. this can be against all kinds of the view that you can have "external" purposes that aren't defined through any of one's antecedent wishes or matters. the talk over no matter if purposes are subjective or target has a tendency to continue in terms of explanatory scorekeeping, and Goldman's e-book properly lays out the terrain of concerns that pull in each one course. As is celebrated, Objectivism approximately purposes is metaphysically high priced: it faces hindrances in explaining how purposes encourage, why they appear to supervene on traditional non-normative homes, and the way we've got epistemic entry to them. commonly Humean perspectives on which all purposes are derived from or defined by way of subjective mental evidence are more often than not regarded as explanatorily greater in all 3 of those respects. Goldman's allegiance to Humean Internalism is strongly prompted by means of its perceived virtue from the viewpoint of a naturalistic, parsimonious metaphysics.
The problem is to flesh out the main points of the Humean view in a manner that avoids extensional inadequacy -- its Achilles' heel within the scorekeeping company. If a subject's purposes are generated via beneficial properties of her idiosyncratic motivational psychology, she is susceptible to be in ownership of either too many and too few purposes. Too many purposes simply because she can have irrational, rogue, or trivial motivations she intuitively has no cause to behave on; too few purposes simply because there appear to be agent-neutral purposes of morality and prudence that observe to her even if she occurs to be encouraged via them. Goldman's process in protection of Internalism is to chew the bullet at the Too Few purposes challenge whereas trying to block the Too Many purposes challenge. This tactic is the opposite of one other fresh and influential security of Humeanism approximately purposes, Mark Schroeder's Slaves of the Passions. Schroeder accepts the implication that we have got many extra purposes than we would have suggestion yet makes an attempt to rescue the compatibility of Humeanism with the conviction that there are agent-neutral purposes. jointly, those methods go away those who find themselves in a different way inspired with the theoretical benefits of Subjectivism within the lucky place of reflecting on which (if both) of those counterintuitive extensional implications is less complicated to swallow.
The challenge of Too Many purposes arises simply because, in response to Humeanism, an agent's purposes for motion are generated by means of her wants: she has cause to A simply in case A-ing may fulfill a few hope of hers. yet we intuitively haven't any cause to indulge trivial wants to remain in mattress rather than attending a tremendous assembly or uninformed wants to drink a pitcher of what's actually petrol. Goldman concedes this instinct and proposes a amendment of conventional Humeanism that excludes trivial and uninformed wants from producing purposes. the tactic is to say that purposes should not without delay defined by way of motivational evidence, yet in a roundabout way in terms of rationality. On his view, now not all of an agent's genuine wants generate purposes, yet basically those who might encourage a rational model of that agent to behave. it is a tactic we'd name "desire-laundering," favourite from the paintings of Bernard Williams, Richard Brandt, Harry Frankfurt, Michael Smith, and others. purposes become non-normative states of affairs that may encourage a rational agent via indicating how a definite motion may are likely to fulfill her wants and concerns:
S has an F [moral, prudential, non secular, aesthetic, . . . ] cause R to do act A = S is F-minded, and thanks to that, if rational, will be inspired by means of knowledge of R to do A (34).
Importantly, it truly is necessary to the Internalist view that this motivational truth is defined by way of a few antecedent crisis of the agent's and never in simple terms her understanding of that situation or a trust that it's a explanation for her.
So a lot is comparatively favourite territory. the place the rubber hits the line for Goldman's model of Internalism is the call for to supply an independently believable, naturalistic figuring out of rationality that doesn't itself attract purposes. this is often the duty of bankruptcy . the main interesting and unique component of Goldman's inspiration is that we must always comprehend rationality because the avoidance of self-defeat. in line with Goldman, rationality imposes major standards on us: info and coherence. First, a rational individual is relevantly proficient as to what it might be prefer to act or now not act at the foundation of her current wants. this can comprise goal info serious to the delight of her wants, resembling that the "gin" she needs to drink is actually petrol, in addition to extra subjective details touching on no matter if a plan of action will serve to frustrate her deeper matters. moment, rationality calls for coherence in one's motivational set, understood because the solution of clash among jointly inconsistent issues, the specification of broader issues into extra concrete objectives, the adoption of capability to those concrete ends, and the overall coordination of one's activities with a watch to selling the optimum mixture of hope pride over the years. The rational strain to obtain suitable info and to accomplish motivational coherence is in every one case pragmatic: those regulative beliefs give a contribution to fending off self-defeat, "defeat of one's personal motivations" (72).
A urgent query arises the following. Can the Subjectivist coherently declare that each one brokers are topic to normative strain to prevent self-defeat, despite their specific wishes? Goldman's circulation is to flooring this normative authority within the "natural aim" of motion. the assumption is that company has a constitutive goal that defines the traditional of winning motion, such that failing to achieve this goal is a failure inner to supplier as such and therefore person who any creature within the organization enterprise needs to see strain to prevent. The argument appeals loosely to a common choice research of functionality and is better understood via analogy with the skill for trust. Goldman claims that the usual target of trust is fact, simply because "organisms (systems within which ideals functionality) with mental states that shop exact information regarding the environments within which they stay (true ideals) are higher capable of act and live on . . . in these environments" (67) and that this explains why organisms with brains in a position to real ideals will be chosen for. With appreciate to motion, the declare is that the common goal of motion is to meet the incentive that triggered the motion. "Believing is what we do after we are looking to arrive on the fact; appearing is what we do once we are looking to fulfill our wishes. due to the fact that wants are as average to us as ideals, and because as motivations they target to be happy, this objective is a average constitutive aim" (71). the realization is that simply because motion evidently goals at wish delight, we brokers can't sensibly bring up the query of even if we have now cause to behave with the intention to fulfill our wishes and thereby keep away from self-defeat.
We can be suspicious concerning the quickness of those arguments and their skill to do the wanted paintings in Goldman's account. First, it isn't in any respect visible that, as Goldman places it, "actions are winning after they satisfy the motivations that suggested the actions" (71). pleasurable the motivations that instructed the motion turns out to me neither beneficial nor enough for winning motion. now not enough due to the danger of deviant causal chains, during which the specified end result is caused through an motion caused by means of that very wish yet the place the motion itself is a failure. In Daniel Bennett's instance, an unpracticed gunman could intend to shoot an enemy, omit via a mile, yet reason a stampede of untamed pigs along with his shot that tramples the enemy to loss of life. no longer invaluable simply because an motion plan will be accomplished completely and but go away the underlying motivation unhappy via no miscalculation of the agent's. The aforementioned gunman may have each cause to count on that killing his enemy will fulfill his wish for closure -- his reliable psychotherapist has guaranteed him -- and may pull off his vengeful aim in precisely the best way he had deliberate, merely to discover that he feels no answer in spite of everything. For all that, he has effectively dedicated the homicide he intended.
Even if we provide this average of winning motion within the specific case, it truly is uncertain why it's constitutive of enterprise to try at maximal hope pride, as Goldman wishes if the necessities of knowledge and coherence are to have a lot chunk. Does one relatively fail to be an agent if one goals simply at neighborhood instead of worldwide wish delight? For Goldman, the elemental resource of failure is self-defeat, so falling wanting maximal desire-satisfaction needs to develop into self-defeating if the remainder is to stick to. yet in what experience may possibly an motion that succeeds in pleasing the will that caused it still represent self-defeat? Goldman's suggestion looks that wishes might be kind of "deep" or "central" to one's motivational set, and that those deep and crucial matters may fail to inspire at a given time yet still have extra declare to be the worries of the "self. " appearing to meet peripheral wishes on the cost of extra authoritative issues may then be acknowledged to represent self-defeat.
But this line of suggestion is simply as convincing as our skill to funds out the metaphors of "depth" and "centrality" with recognize to wish. the trouble is that Goldman wishes those to be basically naturalistic notions that follow sooner than any laundering for informedness and coherence, because the strain to prevent self-defeat is meant to justify these rational calls for. which means he can't entice the Frankfurtian concept that the self emerges because the solid, wholehearted desiderative hierarchy that's the results of reflectively enforcing coherence on one's wishes. Goldman elaborates at the notions of intensity and centrality in different methods, none of that are gratifying. First, he says that deeper matters are "broader," either within the experience of connecting to many different matters and within the feel of being extra summary than their extra concrete requirements. yet this isn't elucidating until eventually we all know extra in regards to the type of connections in query -- semantic connections? Causal connections? it's not transparent why easily being extra summary or attached might entail larger authority.
Second, he claims that the kingdom of wish more often than not consists of an implicit evaluative judgment in prefer of the article of hope, and that those judgments are likely to replicate the intensity of the subject's issues in that the absence of an evaluative endorsement of a felt urge shows that the urge is volatile and peripheral. yet what precisely may possibly the content material of such judgments be? For the Subjectivist, evaluative judgments can't be the popularity of a few aim price within the wanted situation, yet neither does Goldman are looking to be an Expressivist approximately them. This leads him to claim that the concept that 'good' deployed within the evaluative judgments normally inquisitive about hope is a primitive, indefinable suggestion (113). this can serve to cast off thoroughly inexplicable urges from attention, yet i don't see the way it can do the paintings of privileging a few valid wants as extra very important to meet than others. For this we'd desire those judgments to be comparative, and Goldman's definition leaves no room for this; for all he says, those evaluative endorsements appear to be both found in a given hope or now not. The upshot is that i don't see how a lot of whatever the topic is admittedly influenced to do will count number as self-defeat and accordingly don't see how the need of heading off self-defeat can floor the call for for rational desire-laundering.
Does Subjectivism want desire-laundering to paintings with the intention to be believable? Goldman takes it to be a bonus of his model over Schroeder's that we turn out with out cause to meet remoted whims to spoil the crockery or activate radios. yet Schroeder seeks to sweeten the sour tablet of Too Many purposes via rejecting what he calls Proportionalism: the view that once a cause is defined via a wish, the burden of that cause varies in percentage to the power of the need and to how good the motion promotes that hope. as opposed to Proportionalism, Schroeder proposes an account of the burden of purposes in keeping with which a cause has a undeniable weight simply in case it's right to put that a lot weight on it, the place the correctness of reason-weighting is an agent-neutral commonplace and never a functionality of the energy of the suitable hope. If the account works, it permits Schroeder to carry that strange and remoted wants generate purposes of so little weight that they as a rule break out observe altogether. The payoff is that Schroeder can be able to say that whether a given agent cares much less for ethical, prudential, or aesthetic issues than a virtuous individual could, that agent may perhaps but have purposes to behave on these concerns which are a ways weightier than her miserly issues could suggest.
In distinction, Goldman accepts a model of Proportionalism in accordance with which the energy of a collection of purposes is proportional to the centrality of the troubles they replicate and to the anticipated efficacy of the urged motion in selling these matters. it is a a lot more suitable model of Subjectivism than that defended through Schroeder. For Goldman, the true amoralist, masochist, or philistine could have no cause to behave on extra virtuous issues -- and maybe extra relevantly, these folks whose issues for advantage are much less primary than they may be can have correspondingly susceptible purposes to behave virtuously. this can be a notoriously unappealing characteristic of conventional Humeanism that Goldman easily accepts as actual; a wide part of bankruptcy 4 is dedicated to protecting the rationality of the knave. during this admire, in contrast to Schroeder's, Goldman's e-book doesn't signify an attempt to make Humeanism to any extent further palatable to these with Externalist intuitions -- there are nonetheless too few reasons.
This leaves greatly resting at the arguments of bankruptcy 5 opposed to the concept of aim worth, a dedication which Goldman takes to underlie the plausibility of exterior purposes. the fees listed below are renowned. it really is obscure how aim values might be self sufficient of tangible motivations yet rationally require motivation. to give an explanation for how goal values can be efficacious in inflicting us to acknowledge them as such and in motivating us to behave, a tempting circulate is to assert that values are discovered in usual actual homes, yet this set of homes is so heterogeneous that they appear to don't have anything in universal in advantage of which all of them count number as values. additional, Goldman argues that if there's target price, then all of us should target to maximise it. yet this is often either fantastic and impracticable, for there isn't any strategy to degree levels of aim price independently of ways a lot humans truly do worth issues. worth is just obvious to us by means of connection with our personal issues and tasks, and it's most unlikely to name all of those matters into query instantly: "the view from nowhere is the view of no one" (211).
These are previous questions, and Goldman doesn't contemplate new solutions to them. He claims that the talk over the objectivity of values has no longer improved on account that Thomas Nagel's (1977) reaction to J. L. Mackie's 'queerness' argument and so doesn't have interaction without delay with more moderen contributions to the controversy. we should always agree that Objectivist debts fare worse with appreciate to the metaphysics and epistemology of worth, yet a extra concrete exam of Objectivist makes an attempt to mitigate those difficulties is required if we're to attract any conclusions approximately how harmful they're. In sum, if my concerns in regards to the optimistic view are correct, it isn't transparent that Goldman's e-book substantively adjustments the ranking in both path. however it is an interesting and accomplished articulation of Subjectivism and its naturalistic benefits in our realizing of purposes, and is during this regard a truly welcome contribution to the literature.

Kierkegaard verá en Sócrates un precedente del cristianismo. De hecho, las relaciones entre cristianismo y paganismo son centrales en la especulación kierkegaardiana. No obstante, él mismo, en la línea de Schelling, se da cuenta de que con el cristianismo irrumpe una libertad nueva que el mundo pagano no conoció. Véase S. Kierkegaard, Ejercitación del cristianismo, Trotta, Madrid, 2009, pp. 118-134. 47. Resultan claras en este punto las referencias ulteriores que Kierkegaard hará en El concepto de la angustia al papel de la mujer, a su mayor sensibilidad y capacidad de angustiarse, que la ponen en relación directa con la nada, con la pura posibilidad que angustia al hombre impeliéndole a la elección, al ejercicio de la libertad.
No tiene vitalidad. El ser humano está frente a la nada y la nada engendra la angustia. En el hombre natural, el espíritu está al acecho, pero todavía no está presente. La nada inunda al ser humano que desconoce la categoría del espíritu. El espíritu sueña, divaga y se imagina a sí mismo, pero todavía no existe en el individuo. La falta de espíritu sitúa al ser humano frente a la nada, frente al vacío. Pero el hombre natural, aunque no 42 SC H ELL I N G Y K I ER K E G AARD : LA G ÉNES I S DE LA AN G US T I A CON T E M P OR Á NEA participe del espíritu, no es un animal.
La huella de Schelling en el pensamiento kierkegaardiano Volvamos a la recepción de las lecciones de Schelling. Como se ha dicho, Kierkegaard quedó entusiasmado con la segunda lección de Schelling, pues creyó encontrar en él un revulsivo frente al pensamiento sistemático de Hegel. Movido por sus propias inquietudes y su progresivo antihegelianismo, quiso hallar en Schelling una filosofía nueva, centrada en el estudio de las condiciones propias del individuo. En otras palabras, una filosofía existencial, fundamentada en la inextricable particularidad de un sujeto abocado a la autocomprensión desde la soledad, con el horizonte de la trascendencia como horizonte de sentido.
