Johannes does what we're informed to do--he truly doubts everything--he suffers via the entire discomfort of doing that, turns into crafty, nearly acquires a nasty judgment of right and wrong. whilst he has long past as a ways in that course as he can move and needs back, he can't achieve this. . . . Now he despairs, his lifestyles is wasted, his early life is spent in those deliberations. existence doesn't gather any which means for him, and all this can be the fault of philosophy."

Face à los angeles construction de Diderot, Montesquieu ou encore Rousseau, l’oeuvre philosophique de Voltaire ne semble pas peser lourd. On connaît Voltaire conteur, poète, dramaturge, historien, politique… qu’en est-il de Voltaire philosophe ? Les textes réunis dans ce quantity, depuis son superior ouvrage polémique – les célèbres Lettres philosophiques – jusqu’à ses derniers écrits sur Dieu, moins connus, invitent à découvrir los angeles singularité de los angeles pensée voltairienne.
Écrites en Angleterre, les Lettres philosophiques (1734) sont « l. a. première bombe lancée contre l’Ancien Régime » (Gustave Lanson) : avant d’éclater au visage de los angeles royauté de droit divin, elles condamnèrent leur auteur à l’exil. Remettant en reason les certitudes dont étaient pétris les Français d’alors, Voltaire y fustige les autorités en position : nourri des théories de Newton et de Locke, il bat en brèche le cartésianisme ; attaquant Pascal, il tire à boulets rouges sur l’institution religieuse. Cette hostilité à l’esprit de système ne l’a plus jamais quitté. Farouchement opposé aux articles de los angeles foi, il le fut aussi à l’athéisme, ainsi qu’en témoignent les brochures rédigées vers l. a. fin de sa vie, de Tout en Dieu (1769) à Il faut prendre un parti (1775) en passant par Dieu (1770) et les Lettres de Memmius à Cicéron (1771), dans lesquelles le déisme voltairien se précise en une étonnante synthèse des idées de Leibniz, Malebranche et Spinoza.

L. a. relation maître-disciple « défie toute étude d’ensemble », a écrit George Steiner, tant elle se singularise par l. a. stress entre ses cadres multiples et son caractère exact. Socle de l’édifice social, elle s’incarne entre deux personnes, tout en constituant le médium de l. a. pensée en partage. C’est en multipliant les angles et en diversifiant les domaines où cette relation s’exerce que pareil phénomène peut être approché. Tel est le propos de cet ouvrage rassemblant philosophes, historiens et ethnologues. De l’Académie d’Athènes à l’enseignement dans les associations scolaires et universitaires en Europe contemporaine, de filiations spirituelles et musicales hindoues à des pratiques chamaniques de Chine, les auteurs s’interrogent sur les acteurs de los angeles transmission – orale ou livresque, parlée ou muette, gestuelle ou musiquante –, et l’intimité de ces « passeurs de query ». Confucius dit transmettre mais ne pas innover, tout en considérant que de l’ancien émane los angeles nouveauté ; Fichte fait du rapport maître-disciple l. a. situation de l’éclosion du savoir. Autant de occasions dans des civilisations et des temps différents qui déploient toutes les facettes de cette rencontre interpersonnelle. Autant d’occasions de mettre en lumière los angeles continuité, l. a. perdurance de l’objet à transmettre.Une réflexion stimulante sur un phénomène social mal connu : l. a. transmission du savoir.
