Philosophy of the Sign
Philosophy of the Sign (July 1995)
Josef Simon - Author
George Heffernan - Translator

This book presents a coherent philosophy of signs without postulating objects to which they refer or meanings which they express.
In this book, Simon wields Ockham's razor like a scythe to argue historically and systematically for a coherent philosophy of the sign as sign with an unprecedented minimum of ontological and semantical commitments. Deconstructing Plato, Frege, and Husserl, he accounts for signs without positing the existence ...(Read More)
Semiological Reductionism
Semiological Reductionism (July 1995)
A Critique of the Deconstructionist Movement in Postmodern Thought
M. C. Dillon - Author

This critical interpretation shows Derridian thought to be permeated by a semiology that reduces all meaning to the signification of signs thus challenging the philosophy of deconstruction at its roots.

This book interprets Derrida and looks beyond deconstructionism. It is a critique that identifies a pervasive flaw in Derrida's thinking: the semiological reduction that permeates deconstructionist theory and postmoderni...(Read More)
Solitudes (July 1995)
From Rimbaud to Heidegger
Marc Froment-Meurice - Author

The author reads Rimbaud, Mallarme. Holderlin, and Trakl in relation to philosophy, and in particular to Heidegger.

"Not only has Froment-Meurice tackled the most demanding of poetic questions--what is modernity?--but he has not shied away from the truth that this is also and perhaps above all a political question, understanding this term in the broad sense. His work will be of importance to more than one constituency; scholars in ...(Read More)
Sources of Hermeneutics
Sources of Hermeneutics (July 1995)
Jean Grondin - Author

This book provides an introduction to the historical sources of philosophical hermeneutics as it has come to fruition in the work of Heidegger and Gadamer.

"This book represents the best work in the field by one of the best thinkers in the area. Without question, Grondin is in many respects Gadamer's best intepreter." -- Stephen Watson, University of Notre Dame

"I like the clarity of this book, and I like its directness and well-articu...(Read More)

The Site of Our Lives (July 1995)
The Self and the Subject from Emerson to Foucault
James S. Hans - Author

This book addresses the question of human uniqueness at a time when academic discourse has all but abandoned its long-held commitment to the value of individuality. Through an appraisal of the works of Emerson, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Derrida, and Foucault, the author establishes the ways in which the current critique of the self has grossly distorted the nature of the debate by reducing it to a simple choice between essential or constructed selves. ...(Read More)
The Stop
The Stop (May 1995)
David Appelbaum - Author

This book is about the turn toward consciousness by which we pass from ignorance to knowledge. The stop is the spark of initiation that arouses our habitual inattentiveness, motivating us toward a higherunderstanding.
"This is one of the most brilliant, interesting, and utterly original books I have read. Its almost mystical conception of embodied perception is solidly founded in reason and evidence. It replaces Derrida's despairing notio...(Read More)
The Trace of Political Representation
The Trace of Political Representation (May 1995)
Brian Seitz - Author

A philosophical analysis of the discourses, practices, and effects of representation in political institutions, focusing on American democracy.
"Seitz's book is a very fine example of a genre that we can expect to see gaining ascendancy in the next few years--a kind of genealogy of certain key political concepts, in this case 'representation.' As such, this work is at the cutting edge of a kind of politico-philosophical work that has its ...(Read More)
Spirits Hovering Over the Ashes
Spirits Hovering Over the Ashes (May 1995)
Legacies of Postmodern Theory
H. L. Hix - Author

This book explores the consequences of postmodern theory and answers the question, "What did postmodern theory begin?"
In a series of topical explorations structured like a sonata, H. L. Hix identifies the consequences of postmodern theory through such issues as grief, freedom, beauty, obscenity, love, and sex to its axiological consequences. A basic motif, postmodernism's distribution of meaning over space rather than time, recurs throug...(Read More)
The Art of Living
The Art of Living (March 1995)
Aesthetics of the Ordinary in World Spiritual Traditions
Crispin Sartwell - Author

This is a multicultural philosophy of art applied to common American and European experience and discussed in relation to Taoist, Buddhist, Hindu, Native American, and African traditions.
"This is a refreshing book, engaging in its style and imaginative in the unusual range of materials, from the great spiritual traditions to popular American culture, that Sartwell weaves into the texture of his argument. Reading it was both stimulating a...(Read More)
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)
