In seinem 1991 erstmals erschienenen Werk weist der Philosophie- und Sozialhistoriker Panajotis Kondylis nach, dass die sozialen und geistigen Wandlungen seit dem letzten Viertel des 19. Jahrhunderts bis heute eine strukturelle Einheit bilden. Die sich im Laufe von rund a hundred and fifty Jahren vollziehenden gesellschaftlichen Prozesse resultieren in einem Paradigmenwechsel: Statt der bürgerlich-liberalen Denk- und Lebensform bestimmt die egalitär-massendemokratische Konsumhaltung mit ihren Wohlstandsversprechungen die Welt des 20.

Example text

This really amounts to the same thing, since ideal states exist in things themselves, and the system of truth and reality (which here are one and the same thing) is still pre-existent and external to us. Thus truth, in all dogmatic conceptions, can be no more than the transcription of an external reality. Since this truth exists outside individual minds, it is impersonal. It does not express man, and is not attached to him. Consequently, it is ready-made. It 'holds or obtains', says James, 30 it imposes itself on us absolutely.

We shall discuss pragmatism as a theory of the universe only in so far as is necessary to under§tand it as a theory of truth. In this connection, the method has been indicated by James himself. The strength of pragmatism, he says in The Meaning of Truth (pp. 57-9), is the failure of earlier theories, and in particular the inadequacy of rationalism, which has led us to seek a different understanding of truth. Unfortunately, James's discussion of rationalism is for most of the time mixed up with the exposition of his own idea of truth.

38 It is worth noting that this period in Durkheim's life coincided with the introduction of James to a French readership (1879-82), although we have no direct evidence of Durkheim's familiarity with James during these years. The first reference to James which we find in Durkheim's work is a detailed discussion of his Principles of Psychology in an article entitled, 'Individual and collective representations' of 1898. 39 This article can be regarded as something of a turning-point in Durkheim's work, depicting as it does a shift from a central interest in the conscience collective of the Division of Labour to a concern for representations collectives.
