Aunque el título de esta obra de Jaspers -uno de los máximos representantes de la filosofía existencial- habla de los dos puntos teminales de la historia -el origen y la meta-, el tema verdaderamente es la situación actual del hombre. No podemos comprender nuestra situación más que encajándola en el conjunto de la historia universal, y para ello no basta solo considerar el...more

تصور می کنم همین کتاب یاسپرس باشد که توسط محمدحسن لطفی به عنوان "آغاز و انجام تاریخ" به فارسی برگردانده شده و توسط انتشارات خوارزمی چاپ و منتشر شده است. یاسپرس اگرچه فیلسوف بوده، اما در تاریخ مطالعه ی وافری داشته و نظریه هایش در مورد فلسفه ی تاریخ، مورد توجه بسیاری از اندیشمندان قرن گذشته قرار گرفته. نگاه به تاریخ از فلسفه ی یاسپرس، جهان را به گونه ای دیگر جلوه می دهد، کاملن متفاوت با آنچه بصورت معمول در تصور داریم

Jaspers was born in Oldenburg in 1883 to a mother from a local farming community, and a jurist father.

It soon became clear that Jaspers did not particularly enjoy law, and he switched to studying medicine in 1902.
