  2. Aspects of Sex Differences: Social Intelligence vs. Creative Intelligence.Ferdinand Fellmann & Esther Redolfi Widmann - 2017 - Advances in Anthropology 7:298-317.
    In this article, we argue that there is an essential difference between social intelligence and creative intelligence, and that they have their foundation in human sexuality. For sex differences, we refer to the vast psychological, neurological, and cognitive science research where problem-solving, verbal skills, logical reasoning, and other topics are dealt with. Intelligence tests suggest that, on average, neither sex has more general intelligence than the other. Though people are equals in general intelligence, they are different in special forms of (...)

    Das Paar als Quelle des Selbst: Zu den soziobiologischen Grundlagen der philosophischen Anthropologie.Ferdinand Fellmann - 2009 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 57 (5):745-756.
    This paper is about erotic love as source of the self. Unlike in the Platonic tradition, love is interpreted in the light of human mating systems. Following modern sociobiological theories I reconstruct the pair-bond as the original site in the evolution of man. For the philosophy of mind it follows that the unity of personal consciousness can be explained as a dialectic of emotional nearness to and distance from the beloved other.

  4. From Sexuality to Eroticism: The Making of the Human Mind.Ferdinand Fellmann & Rebecca Walsh - 2016 - Advances in Anthropology 6:11-24.
    This paper proposes that the human mind in its creativity and emotional self-awareness is the result of the evolutionary transition from sexuality to eroticism. Eroticism is arrived at and defined by the high amount of energy displayed in animal sexuality. We propose that the unique human emotional intelligence is due to this “overflow” of mating energy. What from the survival viewpoint looks like an enormous waste of time and energy reveals itself to be an unexpected psychological benefit. The diversion of (...)

  5. Eroticism: Why It Still Matters.Ferdinand Fellmann - 2016 - Psychology 7:976-983.
    This article is about Eroticism as a key-concept in the psychological understanding of the human mind. The meaning of the term can be defined as follows: Eroticism is the way humans experience sexuality as a self-sufficient mental activity. Sexuality underlies different social rules in varying cultural contexts and may lead to different ways of thinking, but there is no evidence that cultural diversity actually leads to fundamentally different ways of feeling. The constant disposition for recreational rather than procreational sex makes (...)

  6. Introduction to Phenomenology (Phänomenologie zur Einführung).Ferdinand Fellmann - 2015 - Hamburg, Germany: Junius.
    In this book, I bring together my researches on Edmund Husserl. I explain how the diverse temperaments of Scheler, Heidegger, Sartre, and Merleau-Ponty developed Husserl’s foundational idea. This book focuses on how phenomenology transformed cultural studies, and how phenomenology is being reclaimed as a general theory of media in modern life.

  7. The New Pair.Ferdinand Fellmann - manuscript
    The exclusive relationship, either as a pair or even as a married pair, has regained its attraction. Obviously, the traditional roles, the economically dependent woman who stands by the side of the ‘strong man’, no longer represent the pair bond.

    Emotional Selection and Human Personality.Ferdinand Fellmann - 2013 - Biological Theory 8 (1):64-73.
    This article addresses the emergence of human personality in evolution. The mechanisms of natural and sexual selection developed by Darwin are not sufficient to explain the sense of self. Therefore we attempt to trace the evolutionary process back to a form of selection termed “emotional selection.” This involves reconstructing selection out of subjective qualities and showing how emotions enable human forms of life that are relevant for the cultural level of cooperation that marks our species. We see a paradigm shift (...)

    Von den heroischen Leidenschaften.Giordano Bruno & Ferdinand Fellmann - 1996 - Meiner, F.
    Diese Schrift ist das letzte Werk Brunos, der 1600 nach einem aufsehenerregenden Prozeß als Ketzer verbrannt wurde. Hier entwickelt der Renaissancephilosoph sein philosophisches Credo und beeinflußte damit die Philosophie bis in die Zeit des deutschen Idealismus, insbesondere Schelling. Brunos anthropologischer Ansatz ist ein Meilenstein auf dem Weg der philosophischen Selbstreflexion vom Mittelalter in die Moderne.

    Die Geschichte auf den allgemeinen Begriff der Kunst gebracht.Benedetto Croce & Ferdinand Fellmann - 1984 - Meiner, F.
    Croces philosophische Akademieabhandlung von 1893, für die Philosophische Bibliothek erstmals ins Deutsche übertragen, gehört zu den fundamentalen Texten der neueren Geschichtstheorie. In Anknüpfung insbesondere an die deutschen Geschichtsphilosophen des 19. Jahrhunderts entwickelt Croce einen ästhetischen Ansatz, um die Geschichtswissenschaften vor ihrer positivistischen Auflösung in reine Gelehrsamkeit zu bewahren.

  14. Can Morals Be Taught? (Die Angst des Ethiklehrers vor der Klasse. Ist Moral lehrbar?).Ferdinand Fellmann - 2000 - Reclam.
    This work has proved to be the secret classic of pedagogy. Fellmann argues for the transition from the strict Kantian ethics to the utilitarian-based art of living. This is presented in five steps: The class asks the instructor unexpected questions; how the instructor can address the fascination with evil and utility; the desire for morality and the metamorphoses of hedonism; even in morality, nothing is as successful as success; a field trip experiences a shipwreck, the social foundations of morality.

    Das Ende der Kultur: Wie Georg Simmel den Begriff der Kultur soziologisch dekonstruiert.Ferdinand Fellmann - 2015 - Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie 2015 (1-2):79-94.
    In this paper I claim that the metaphysical concept of culture has come to an end. Among the European authors Georg Simmel is the foremost who has deconstructed the myth of culture as a substantial totality beyond relations or prior to them. Two tenets of research have prepared the end of all-inclusive culture: First, Simmel's formal access that considers society as the modality of interactions and relations between individuals, thus overcoming the social evolutionism of Auguste Comte; second, his critical exegesis (...)

  17. The Erosopher: A Philosophical Autobiography (Der Erosoph: Eine philosophische Autobiographie).Ferdinand Fellmann - 2019 - Königshausen und Neumann.
    In this autobiography, Fellmann’s personal experiences obtain in the light of philosophical themes a general significance. His connections to famous authors from the past and present situate his thought in a historical context. The focus of his Philosophy of Life is Eros; the Erosopher is the one who shares his wisdom of living. This book appeals to a broad public interested in the contemporary currents of philosophical reflection.

    The Love-Code is a continuation of The Couple to the family, whose image has changed dramatically. Sexual promiscuity, the social equality of male and female, the individual planning of biographies, all make traditional gender roles appear outdated. Whether these changes will make the living together of the sexes easier is doubtful. This book addresses the question, how can love even in the conditions of neo-liberalism keep its mysterious binding force: through the recognition of sexual identity as a way to knowing (...)

  21. The Couple. An Erotic Justification of Man (Das Paar. Eine erotische Rechtfertigung des Menschen).Ferdinand Fellmann - 2005 - Parerga.
    This work represents the turn in philosophical anthropology to intersubjectivity. In our day, when society threatens to disintegrate into elementary particles, the question becomes acute, What holds individuals together? Fellmann’s answer: the couple as anthropological radical liberates individual humans from isolation. Even outside of marriage and family institutions, erotic love is the communicative medium that cannot be replaced with discourse alone. Thus, the human finds justification through love: a way of living in no way inferior to Christian justification through belief.

A comparison of Husserl’s idea of life-world with the “critical theory” of Jürgen Habermas shows that both thinkers are bound to the same idea of integral rationality, which still exists in the German mind today.

  31. Philosophy of Life: Elements of a Theory of a Philosophy of the Self (Lebensphilosophie: Elemente Einer Theorie der Selbsterfahrung).Ferdinand Fellmann - 1993 - Hamburg, Germany: Rowohlt Taschenbuch Verlag.
    In his presentation of different life-philosophers, Fellmann shows that the discrediting of the Philosophy of Life as a dangerous irrationalism misses the main point. This lies in the discovery of emotional intelligence, which is found in modern forms of self-experience in opposition to the Cartesian Cogito. It is not about overcoming rationalism, but rather enriching it with the first-person perspective.

    In times of social upheaval, self-understanding has become shaky. Against this background, Fellmann asks the anthropological question anew: He does not inquire into human essence, but, in reference to Thomas Nagel’s question, “What is it like to be a bat?”, into subjective experience. The key concept that Fellmann rediscovers and focuses on is “life feelings”. He connects both sides of life experience, the subjective and the objective. In nine concise chapters, life feeling is viewed from diverse perspectives: from basic instincts (...)

The prehistory clarifies how Husserl arrived at transcendental idealism in his most famous work, Ideas.

Eastern wisdom is also considered.

    In contrast to the hermeneutics of Hans-Georg Gadamer, which maintains the interpretation of classical texts, I emphasize the role of images in our everyday understanding. I see the added value of images in the fact that they show the latent background, from which the manifest messages draw their actual significance. Before Thomas Mitchell’s “pictorial turn”, I referred to the iconic turn as “imagic turn” in order to emphasize the originary connection between images and magic rituals. The magical component of the (...)

    The Couple: Intimate Relations in a New Key.Ferdinand Fellmann - 2016 - Zürich, Switzerland: LIT Verlag.
    This book is about the couple, which I consider to be both the origin and the foundation of a strong social self. Despite increasing self-realisation, the individual is always in need of justification through an intimate relationship in which both partners accept one another as they are. In view of the process of global urbanization, empathy and reliability are the royal road to overcoming existential loneliness.

    The pair-bond model of human origin proposed by Lovejoy in his “Reexamining Human Origins in Light of Ardipithecus ramidus” combines fossil records with the unique sexual behavior of modern humans. This construct, however, seems to lack an emotionally important element. By connecting ovulatory crypsis with frontal copulation and face-to-face contact, the transition to the complexity and subtlety of human emotional life becomes more evident. Reproductive success and emotional representation are considered as two interacting levels in the phylogenetic scale. Thus, the (...)
