From its Presocratic beginnings, Western philosophy involved itself with a quest for solidarity either when it comes to the systematization of data and as a metaphysical look for a solidarity of being—two developments that may be considered as converging and culminating in Hegel’s process of absolute idealism. when you consider that Hegel, despite the fact that, the philosophical quest for solidarity has turn into more and more complicated. Jussi Backman returns to that query during this publication, reading where of the solidarity of being within the paintings of Heidegger.

Das Problem des ,Ur-Ich, bei Edmund Husserl: Die Frage nach der selbstverständlichen ,Nähe' des Selbst

Der späte Husserl spricht von dem ,Ur-Ich’ als dem Ich, das der transzendentalen Intersubjektivität in einem gewissen Sinne vorangeht. Dies besagt aber nicht, dass es ein solipsistisches Ich wäre, das dem Anderen einseitig voranginge. Der Terminus ,Ur-Ich’ zeigt vielmehr die Ursprünglichkeit einer asymmetrischen und irreversiblen Relation zwischen Ich und Anderem zugespitzt an.

In order to show that it is indeed possible to construct a correct theory of truth for any natural language without question-beggingly presupposing any knowledge of the meanings actually possessed by expressions in the language, Davidson introduces the device of radical interpretation. This consists in attempting to determine, on the basis of observations as to what causes a speaker or group of speakers to make various utterances, the truth conditions possessed by these utterances.

A free, responsible exercise of certain conceptual capacities … with a suitable mode of togetherness would be judging that there is a red cube in front of one. Now we can say that in an ostensible seeing that there is a red cube in front of one – an experience in which it looks to one as if there is a red cube in front of one – the same conceptual capacities would be actualized with the same mode of togetherness. This cashes out the idea that an experience so described “contains” [as Sellars maintains] a claim, whose content is just what one would be judging in the corresponding judgement.
