La sentencia de Anaximandro

Javier Alonso Aldama, Luis Garagalza


This work will focus on the Castoriadis´s coment on the maxim of Anaximander, a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, about Apeiron (the indefinite) as the source of all things. The work is based, to a great extent, on Castoriadis´s own criteria: the neccesity of understanding of the social-historical context in which the maxim was produced and transmitted, his critic of the dominant ensemblisticidentitary logic-ontology, and his hypothesis of the Greek experience of the abyss. The article deals also with the Castoriadis´s critique of Heidegger´s interpretation of the pre-Socratic maxim and of the translation proposed by the German philosopher.
