The Past Is Yet to Come
Karl Jaspers — began his academic career working as a psychiatrist and, after a period of transition, he converted to philosophy in the early s. Throughout the middle decades of the twentieth century he exercised considerable influence on a number of areas of philosophical inquiry: especially on epistemology, the philosophy of religion, and political theory. Usually this evaluation is based on his reliance on the subjective-experiential transformation of Kantian philosophy, which reconstructs Kantian transcendentalism as a doctrine of particular experience and spontaneous freedom, and emphasizes the constitutive importance of lived existence for authentic knowledge. However, current commentators of his philosophy have started questioning this view. Jaspers obtained his widest influence, not through his philosophy, but through his writings on governmental conditions in Germany, and after the collapse of National Socialist regime he emerged as a powerful spokesperson for moral-democratic education and reorientation in the Federal Republic of Germany. Despite his importance in the evolution of both philosophy and political theory in twentieth-century Germany, today Jaspers is to a large extent a neglected thinker. The explanations that are given for this are various.
When did societies become modern? ‘Big history’ dashes popular idea of Axial Age
Karl Jaspers Half of article reproduced here. On February 23, I was born in Oldenburg, a son of Karl Jaspers, the former sheriff and later bank director, and bis wife Henriette, nee Tantzen. I passed a well-guarded childhood in the company of my brothers and sisters, either in the country with my grandparents or at the seaside, sheltered by loved and revered parents, led by the authority of my father, brought up with a regard for truth and loyalty, for achievement and reliability, yet without church religion except for the scanty formalities of the Protestant confession. I attended the high school of my home town, and from the University. My path was not the normal one of professors of philosophy. I did not intend to become a doctor of philosophy by studying philosophy I am in fact a doctor of medicine nor did L by any means, intend originally to qualify for a professorship by a dissertation on philosophy.

This paper takes this development as an occasion to reflect on how social thought works with and against nineteenth-century intellectual traditions in its efforts to understand history on a macro scale. Karl Jaspers, who initially formulated the axial age thesis in The Origin and Goal of History, revised the Hegelian account of world history by broadening the scope of the narrative to encompass all civilizations participating in the events of the first millennium BCE that saw the rise of major philosophical and religious traditions. However, his account, like the earlier philosophical accounts he seeks to improve upon, privileges cognitive developments over material practices and social interactions, and as such offers little to those seeking to make sense of how cultural patterns interact with others and spread. Here another social theorist engaging with Hegel, W.

The Origin and Goal of History
Axial Age also Axis Age ,  from German : Achsenzeit is a term coined by German philosopher Karl Jaspers in the sense of a "pivotal age", characterizing the period of ancient history from about the 8th to the 3rd century BCE. During this period, according to Jaspers' concept, new ways of thinking appeared in Persia , India , China and the Greco-Roman world in religion and philosophy , in a striking parallel development, without any obvious direct cultural contact between all of the participating Eurasian cultures. Jaspers identified key thinkers from this age who had a profound influence on future philosophies and religions, and identified characteristics common to each area from which those thinkers emerged. Many have questioned whether the 'axial age' is a legitimate category of history.
When did things start to go wrong? It is hard not to ask that question nowadays. Today, this singular has become even more evidently and disturbingly a universal, the techno-spiritual monoculture of the species. We do not recognize ourselves in pre-axial humanity, ancient or contemporary; the great archaic empires are like another planet to us.
Although the Axial Age has recently been the focus of increasing interest, its existence is still very much in dispute.
Jaspers, Stuart-Glennie, and the Origins of the Theory
В одно мгновение в шифровалке установилась полная тишина. Сирены захлебнулись, мониторы Третьего узла погасли. Тело Грега Хейла растворилось в темноте, и Сьюзан, инстинктивно поджав ноги, прикрылась пиджаком Стратмора. В шифровалке никогда еще не было так тихо, здесь всегда слышался гул генераторов. Теперь все умолкло, так что можно было различить облегченный вздох раненого чудовища - ТРАНСТЕКСТА, постепенно стихающее шипение и посвистывание, сопутствующие медленному охлаждению.
- Дай парню передохнуть. Ни для кого не было секретом, что Мидж Милкен недолюбливала Тревора Стратмора. Стратмор придумал хитроумный ход, чтобы приспособить Попрыгунчика к нуждам агентства, но его схватили за руку. Несмотря ни на что, АН Б это стоило больших денег.
- Попробую отгадать… из-за прически. - Верно, Шерлок Холмс. - Забавное имя. Сам придумал. - А кто же еще! - ответил тот с гордостью. - Хочу его запатентовать. - Как торговую марку? - Беккер смотрел на него изумленно.
