Ber Die Grundlage Der Moral

Schopenhauer (1788–1860) plädiert in seiner Schrift "Über die Grundlagen der Moral" für einen deskriptiven und nicht für einen präskriptiven moralphilosophischen Ansatz. Trotz seiner Wertschätzung für Kant unterzieht er dessen Ethik einer eingehenden Kritik und ersetzt deren oberstes Prinzip, den kategorischen Imperativ, durch das Gefühl des Mitleids. In seiner 1839 bei der Dänischen Societät der Wissenschaften eingereichten und 1841 erstmals in dem Band "Die beiden Grundprobleme der Ethik" veröffentlichten Preisschrift über die Grundlage der Moral legt Schopenhauer eine Reihe bemerkenswerter Ergänzungen zu seiner Ethik bzw. Metaphysik der Sitten vor. In keinem anderen seiner Werke setzt er sich so ausführlich mit Kants Ethik auseinander, die er einerseits als bedeutende Leistung würdigt, andererseits aber auch einer gründlichen und - in vielen Punkten - überzeugenden Kritik unterwirft. Ein zentraler Einwand lautet, dass der kategorische Imperativ letzten Endes einem kalkulierten Egoismus entspringe. Damit wäre er kein formales, sondern ein materiales Prinzip, und er würde nicht kategorisch, sondern allenfalls hypothetisch gelten. Darüber hinaus weist Schopenhauer die "imperative Form" der Kantischen Ethik als unangemessen zurück. Nach seiner Auffassung besteht die Aufgabe der Ethik keineswegs darin, Vorschriften aufzustellen, nach denen sich die Menschen zu richten hätten, sondern lediglich darin, deren Verhalten zu beschreiben und verständlich zu machen. Was seine eigene Konzeption der Ethik anbelangt, so läuft sie darauf hinaus, daß das Mitleid die Grundlage der Moral bildet. Schopenhauer charakterisiert es als ein Gefühl, in dem einem Menschen das Leiden des Anderen ebenso unmittelbar zugänglich ist wie das eigene und das ihn dazu motiviert, den Anderen zum letzten Zweck des Handelns zu machen. Vor diesem Hintergrund entwickelt Schopenhauer seine eigene Tugendlehre, in deren Mittelpunkt die Gerechtigkeit und die Menschenliebe stehen.

Das Handbuch Verantwortung vermittelt einen Überblick über Themen und Positionen der internationalen Verantwortungsforschung. Es befasst sich mit Geschichte und Etymologie der Verantwortung und zeigt, warum der Verantwortungsbegriff zum Grundvokabular des ethischen Denkens gehört. Wann immer von Verantwortung die Rede ist, spielen Begriffe wie Freiheit, Zurechnung, Schuld oder Pflicht eine wesentliche Rolle. Darüber hinaus werden unterschiedliche Typen und Arten der Verantwortung wie individuelle und kollektive Verantwortung behandelt. Der Leser wird mit den wichtigsten Handlungsbereichen vertraut gemacht, zu denen die politische und rechtliche Verantwortung gehören, aber auch die Rolle des Verantwortungsprinzips in Erziehung, Medien, Technik und Wissenschaft. Nicht zuletzt geht es um den Beitrag, den das Verantwortungsprinzip für den Umgang mit Herausforderungen der Menschenrechte, der Weltarmut oder des Klimawandels leistet.

This Hackett edition, first published in 1981, is an unabridged and unaltered republication of the seventh (1907) edition as published by Macmillan and Company, Limited. From the forward by John Rawls: In the utilitarian tradition Henry Sidgwick (1838-1900) has an important place. His fundamental work, The Methods of Ethics (first edition 1874, seventh and last edition 1907, here reprinted), is the clearest and most accessible formulation of what we may call 'the classical utilitarian doctorine.' This classical doctrine holds that the ultimate moral end of social and individual action is the greatest net sum of the happiness of all sentient beings. Happinesss is specified (as positive or negative) by the net balance of pleasure over pain, or, as Sidgwick preferred to say, as the net balance of agreeable over disagreeable consciousness. . . .
