Vollkomene Dichtung Vittorio Hösles prägnanter Essay bietet den seit über hundert Jahren ausführlichsten Vergleich der beiden wichtigsten philosophischen Dichtungen des Christentums, Dantes Commedia und Goethes Faust (mit gelegentlichen Querverweisen auf Miltons Paradise Lost). Fragt man den ebenso belesenen wie originären Philosophen Vittorio Hösle, warum er zwei Werke miteinander vergleicht, deren Entstehungszeiten ein halbes Jahrtausend auseinanderliegen, erhält man Folgendes zur Antwort: Es sei die Balance zwischen umfassender Philosophie und poetischer Vollkommenheit, die diese zwei Werke charakterisiere und sie vor anderen grossen Werken der europäischen Literatur auszeichne. Diese poetisch-philosophische Balance, die beiden Kunstwerken gemeinsam ist, lädt zu allgemeinen Fragen ein wie: Was sind die Kriterien vollkommener Dichtung? Wie ist es möglich, philosophische Ideen poetisch auszudrücken? Hinsichtlich der Hervorbringung dieser beiden Werke können wir fragen: Inwiefern hat der religiöse Hintergrund zur Schaffung solcher Werke beigetragen? Weisen die Biographien beider Dichter gemeinsame Züge auf, die sie zu ihren grossen Werken befähigten? Darüber hinaus sind es aber auch die Unterschiede der beiden philosophischen Dichtungen, die Vittorio Hösle interessieren. Was geschah in der europäischen Geistesgeschichte, und zwar in der religiösen Entwicklung, in der Schöpfung neuer philosophischer Ideen sowie in der Produktion neuer literarischer Formen, das die Unterschiede zwischen den Werken Dantes und Goethes zu erklären vermag? Der vorliegende Band geht besonders auf die enzyklopädische Dimension der zwei Dichtungen ein, deren Bild von Natur und Wissenschaft sowie von Politik und Geschichte analysiert wird; hinzukommen Reflexionen zum Verhältnis von Philosophie und Religion sowie zum Unterschied der beiden Helden, dem Pilger Dante und dem Gelehrten Faust. Aus dem Inhalt Enzyklopädischer Ehrgeiz Natur und Wissenschaft Geschichte und Politik Philosophie und Religion Faust und der Pilger Dante

From the late nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, George Santayana was a highly esteemed and widely read writer of philosophy, poetry, essays, memoirs, and even a best-selling novel, The Last Puritan. After a period of relative neglect, interest in his work has revived. A complete edited edition of his works is in progress and he has become the object of renewed scholarly activity. Contributing significantly to the renewal was John McCormick's 1987 biography, the first full-scale volume to treat an elusive figure's life and thought in the detail they deserve. Santayana's life was rich in its interior and outer associations. There was his birth and early childhood in Spain followed by a move to Boston, where he came under the influence of William James at Harvard. This led to his career at Harvard as a professor, where Wallace Stevens, Robert Frost, Conrad Aiken, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Walter Lippmann were among his devoted students. We see Santayana in correspondence and conversation with Bertrand Russell, G.E. Moore, Ezra Pound, and Robert Lowell. Predominant in Santayana's life was his philosophical work. Hostile to the dominant empiricism of Anglo-American philosophy, he left the academy and remained detached from both the political and ideological movements of early decades of the twentieth century. McCormick relates his skepticism and materialism to a form of idealism deriving from his classical education in Plato and Aristotle, together with his readings in Descartes and Spinoza. He presents Santayana as a supreme stylist in English, who lived a long life always consistent with his stoic epicureanism. John McCormick is professor emeritus of comparative literature at Rutgers University, and an honorary fellow of English and other literatures at the University of York, England. He is the author of Seagoing: Memoirs, Bullfighting: Art, Technique, and Spanish Society, Fiction as Knowledge, American and European Literary Imagination, and Catastrophe and Imagination: English and American Writings from 1870 to 1950, all published by Transaction.

Santayana the Philosopher: Philosophy as a Form of Life highlights the far-ranging nuances of Santayana’s philosophical system, while also discussing his ever-present concern for contemporary human affairs. Santayana understood the activity of philosophy in a Greek manner, as a form of life, but his interests always included the perennial philosophical questions and how they related to the present.
