Uno dei motivi di fondo del dibattito filosofico degli ultimi anni ha nell’incontro-scontro tra analitici e continentali il proprio tema portante. Si è spesso detto che le tradizioni non comunicano e che i contenuti, oltre che gli stili filosofici, divergono in maniera significativa.
Ora si può forse indicare nella storia delle ermeneutiche applicate al pensiero di Nietzsche los angeles vicenda di un percorso alternativo, in cui due tradizioni in step with moti versi antitetiche convergono, sostenute da un duplice obiettivo: comprendere certo il pensiero nietzschiano, ma anche reinterpretare se stesse, in una direzione che è a un pace ricapitolazione genealogica del passato, e anticipazione teleologica del futuro. Questo studio traccia le linee essenziali di un lato di questo rapporto (Nietzsche e l. a. tradizione filosofica anglo-americana), concludendo come il dialogo tra opposti (non solo filosofia analitica efilosofia continentale, ma anche Nietzsche e tradizione analitica), o presunti tali sia non solo possibile, ma anche, di fatto, assolutamente proficuo.

Sample text

It is a well-known feature of social norms and values that they often tend to force humans to comply with certain rules and to pursue socially specified aims which do not necessarily coincide with these individuals’ own immediate interests. On the other hand, the capability to adapt one’s behavior to a specific situation and thereby to pursue one’s own immediate self-interest is the most outstanding property that allows for a distinction between man and most, if not all, other organisms. Sometimes, we can even simultaneously experience both forces at work: every moral conflict is characterized by the struggle between our conscience representing the social aims and our selfishness pursuing our narrow self-interests.

The relevance of such claims with regard to justice becomes even more evident in the above-mentioned case of market competition: in a capitalist economy, the supplier with the most innovative and, therefore, best-selling products is granted the highest profit. This does not mean that the other competitors will not do whatever they can to challenge the market leader’s position, but none of them would fundamentally question market competition as the underlying mechanism because it is admitted that higher or lower profits as ‘payoffs’ correlate with and are legitimized by some significant input, be it creativeness, social competence, cleverness, or the preparedness to take some risk.

The corresponding change of the organic structure is small and it requires only a minor extension of the genetic base. 3 Behaviorist approaches to learning In the last section, an attempt was made to hypothetically derive a suitable structure for the formation of learning-based behavior in a dynamically changing environment. This type of process in fact exists and it is known as classical conditioning. It was discovered accidentally by the Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov during his studies of the role of salivation in digestion.
