# Description

Roman o čovjeku koji je izmislio kreditnu karticu
“Taj dosjetljivi šarlatan, spretni i sretni hohštapler, učinjen je u romanu uvjerljivim, prihvatljivim i, usprkos svemu, simpatičnim. Denry najčešće iskorištava ipak tuđu glupost. Iako je i sam snob, njegovi se najefektniji potezi realiziraju upravo u razgoličavanju daleko većeg i glupljeg snobizma drugih. A to što je čitatelju učinjen prihvatljivim postignuto je finim psihološkim nijansiranjem i njegovim, u osnovi etičkim dilemama.”
“U velikoj mjeri u ovom romanu za Bennetta vrijedi upravo ono što je napisao u zadnjoj rečenici o svome junaku: On se identificirao (…) s velikim ciljem da nas sve uveseljava.”

# Description

Kod čitanja bilo kojeg njegova rada, jedna stvar je očita – Hrupec čita nevjerojatno puno. No, ono što je bitno jest da on u svemu što se zbiva oko nas uvijek vidi dobru priču, priču koju on tek treba ispričati. Tako priču s koncerta Arsena i Matije Dedića (Arsenova hiperrealistična autoreinterpretacija – “...kulture neće biti!”) Hrupec isprepleće s Fukuyaminim Krajem povijesti i s Horganovim Krajem znanosti. Ako bi Hrupeca trebalo usporediti s nekim tko bi mu bio sličan, onda bi Carl Sagan bio dobar za oglednu usporedbu. Baš poput Sagana, Hrupec dijeli istu strast za znanjem, a znalački uvjerljivo brani znanost i znanstveni pristup pred naletima predrasuda i pseudoznanstvenih besmislica. Hrupecovi tekstovi nisu tek jadikovke. On je duboko svjestan važnosti koju za društvo ima(ju) znanost(i). Stoga iz njegovih tekstova isijavaju stavovi i misli o važnosti slobode umjetničkog, znanstvenog i filozofskog stvaranja. Od čitanja Hrupecovih tekstova izranja i izravna korist za onog čitatelja koji želi biti dobro informiran. Naime, stalno čitajući na svojim putovanjima, on se i dobro načitao. Uočio je on tako i mnoštvo tekstualnih bisera, ali i one knjige koje to uopće nisu. Stoga, u njegov kritički sud o knjigama možemo se osloniti. (Saša Ceci)

# Description

This book is an anthology of essays in contemporary philosophy of human sexuality. Western thought offers four comprehensive conceptions of sex and sexuality. Sex is understood as ordained to procreation, as bound up with a particular type of personal love, as a language of the body, or as a source of a certain type of pleasure. These conceptions of sex and the related topic of sexual perversion are explored in the essays comprising the first part of the book. The second part contains essays on selected issues in sexual ethics such as adultery, prostitution, homosexuality, rape, incest etc.

Title The Face of the Circle Revealed

Year published 2004. 50.
ISBN 953-6463-13-X
Format 195x195 mm
Price 140,00 kn (+PDV 5%)
Pages 198
# Description

The Face of the Circle Revealed demonstrates its readers that the circle is not only a geometric shape and that the circumference is not only a rotation of a point on the radius distance. The circle has its face, and the circumference is a life-giving movement that puts itself in motion. Plato recognizes it in the soul of the cosmos and every living being. To reveal the face of the circle means to recognize in it opposed moments which belong to each other and to follow them in their interrelation. Furthermore, it means to see how these moment confront with external and internal obstacles, how they actualize the fullness of their interrelation, but also its and their own destruction. That is to say, the circumference as a life-giving movement of these opposed moments which belong to each other can be directed at the establishment of their unity, but it can also be reversed in a manner that each moment turns one against another, bringing themselves and the whole they belong to, to blindness and death. The understanding of this subtle and complex movement which is exposed in the main part of the book is made easier by the second part in which this movement is demonstrated through fine art media. In this part the face of the circle is being revealed through the interpretations of Dürer’s engraving Melencolia I, Magritte’s painting Condicio humana II and Escher’s lithograph Print Gallery.

Title The Reason Why: A Theory of Philosophical Explanation

Format 140x220 mm, 296+XIV str., hard cover
Price 260,00 kn►S POPUSTOM►160,00 kn (+PDV 5%)
# Description

Reasons for belief can be all sorts, but when do such reasons amount to a rational explanation? The thesis advanced in this book is that the scope and the limits of rational explanation are fixed by a number of fundamental ideas and principles which are all mutually complementary and interdependent, and provide an insight into how the world is actually made up. It is a logical requirement of rational explanation that such ideas, and the principles that go with them, should form a self-supporting analytical system. One such idea and a vital component of the system is the idea of self.
This runs counter to what might be described as a ‘naturalistic’ approach to explanation. A naturalistic explanation, essentially, is based on the assumption that the world is fashioned by factors that exist independently of the conditions under which they may feature as objects of belief, rational or otherwise. The ideas in terms of which we make sense of what we experience are treated, accordingly, as ‘emergent’ phenomena and products of human evolution. This feature of naturalistic explanations does not necessarily detract from their capacity to serve as useful prognostic tools. Nevertheless such pragmatic utility as they may have cannot hide their philosophical limitations.
“Edo Pivčević once again brings his own individual approach to a difficult topic in a book that is highly readable as well as original.”
Timothy Williamson, Wykeham Professor of Logic, University of Oxford

# Description

Ovdje objavljeni filozofski, znanstveni i znanstveno-popularni tekstovi, članci i knjige, prvenstveno imaju sveučilišnu i studijsku svrhu. Ako studiji na sveučilištima u Hrvatskoj (filozofski studiji te drugi znanstveni i akademski studiji) tu svrhu ne vide -- tim gore po njih.
