The Path of Archaic Thinking
The Path of Archaic Thinking (March 1995)
Unfolding the Work of John Sallis
Kenneth Maly - Editor

This is the first anthology of commentary on Sallis that shows what is genuinely unique in his thought: the transformative relation of reason and imagination in thinking "after Heidegger."
This book demonstrates that the kind of philosophy called Continental thought belongs to America in its own right. It reflects the depth, originality, and revolutionary character of Sallis's "re-doing" imagination--of his twisting imagination free fro...(Read More)

They address the question in its in...(Read More)
 
 
Nietzsche and the Modern Crisis of the Humanities

Peter Levine - Author

This is a critique of Nietzsche's theory of culture that proposes an alternative paradigm allowing a defense of the humanities against such Nietzschians as Leo Strauss and Derrida.

Nineteenth-Century Philosophy and Contemporary Theory
Tilottama Rajan - Editor
David L. Clark - Editor

This is a study of the relationship between postmodernism and post-enlightenment German thought reading the contemporary theoretical scene through its nineteenth-century counterpart and examining the intersections.

Dominique Janicaud - Author
Jean-Francois Mattei - Author
Michael Gendre - Translator

"Philosophy has come to an end" claimed Heidegger in the final posthumously published interview he granted to Der Spiegel. The goal of Janicaud's chapters ("Overcoming Metaphysics?," "Heideggeriana," "Metamorphosis of the Undecidable," and the dialogue "Heidegger in New York") first of all is to clarify the project of "overcoming" metaphysics, a project that Heidegger himself recognized as open to innumerable misunderstandings. Is it really...(Read More)
