Wenn das Leben nichts als ein Traum ist, zu used to be erwachen wir dann?

Die zentrale Prämisse dieses Buches ist die zugegebenermaßen lächerliche und dennoch unwiderlegbar wahre Behauptung, dass das Universum nicht existiert.

Das ist etwas, das Sie entweder konzeptionell verstehen können, wie beim Sehen einer Dokumentation über die Antarktis, oder experimentell, wie beim Auswandern in die Antarktis.

Es gibt auch das verwandte Phänomen, dass Sie einschlafen während Sie die Dokumentation sehen und in der gefrorenen Wüste aufwachen.

Das muss sich komisch anfühlen, aber die Wahrheit ist, dass Sie in einer kargen Wüstenlandschaft schlafen und nur träumen, dass sie es nicht tun, daher müssen Sie dort herauskommen, sobald Sie aufwachen.

Dans l'histoire de los angeles problématique occidentale de l. a. connaissance de soi, un fil directeur est constamment maintenu, celui- là même qu'instaure le modèle réflexif de los angeles judgment of right and wrong que l'on trouve déjà chez Platon. l. a. devise connais-toi toi-même feel que l'âme fasse retour sur elle-même, qu'elle s'appréhende telle qu'elle est, afin que dans los angeles lumière de sa propre connaissance, elle trouve le sursaut de lucidité qui l. a. conduise à une vie plus juste. los angeles conscience-de-soi semble donc le résultat d'une réflexion de l'intellect sur un plan immédiat et irréfléchi qui est celui de los angeles vie naturelle. l. a. vie naturelle, en tant qu'elle est consciente, se déroule dans l'état de veille, et elle est essentiellement judgment of right and wrong d'autre selected et non pas exactement d'elle-même.
On peut aussi poser le problème autrement, en considérant de plus près l. a. valeur du sujet qui est éveillé. Qui est le moi vigilant ? Qui est lucide ? Est-ce le même moi qui, travel à journey, se reprend dans une réflexion sur soi ? l. a. conscience-de-soi qui se connaît elle-même, qui est auto-référente, est-elle vraiment le résultat de cet exercice d'une réflexion sur soi ? N'y a-t-il pas aussi une forme de sense of right and wrong, ou un sens intime, comme dirait Maine de Biran, qui supporte los angeles présence à soi et los angeles réflexion elle-même ? L'auto-référence n'est-elle pas l'attribut le plus originaire du Soi-même ? N'est-elle pas dans los angeles nature même du je suis antérieurement à toute réflexion ?
Depuis l. a. plus haute antiquité indienne, depuis les premières Upanisad, il est fait référence à l'avasthâtraya, los angeles théorie des trois états. Est désigné par là viveka, l'investigation de l. a. nature du sommeil profond, du rêve et de l'état de veille. Les auteurs indiens les plus contemporains ne cessent eux-mêmes de reprendre cette examine que l'on pourrait appeler une phénoménologie des états relatifs de moral sense. L'insistance est si constante dans los angeles durée, elle est si omniprésente dans les textes, qu'il serait tentant de voir dans los angeles théorie des trois états une clé qui ouvre los angeles porte de l'advaita, l. a. non-dualité, autre nom donné au Vedânta.
Le moment quantity rassemble les events III, sur l’état de veille et IV sur le quatrième état.

Thèse de doctorat soutenue à excursions. Une relecture de l. a. phénoménologie à l. a. lumière du Vedânta et inversement, une réappropriation du Vedânta par los angeles phénoménologie. Ce livre se situe dans l'exact prolongement d'un ouvrage précédent de l'auteur paru aux Presses universitaire de Nancy : moral sense et connaissance de soi.
