Double Truth
Double Truth (December 1994)
John Sallis - Author

This is an anthology of deconstructive writings on the doubly difficult theme of truth by the foremost American philosopher of postmodernity.

Sallis takes his readers by the hand, and, with great delicacy, introduces them to hitherto unseen subtleties at the very heart of the works o...(Read More)
 
 
Heidegger from Metaphysics to Thought
Heidegger from Metaphysics to Thought (December 1994)
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)

To Nietzsche: Dionysus, I Love You! Ariadne
To Nietzsche: Dionysus, I Love You! Ariadne (December 1994)
Claudia Crawford - Author

This book explores the possibility that Friedrich Nietzsche simulated his madness as a form of 'voluntary death,' and thus that his madness functioned as the symbolic culmination of his philosophy.

The book weaves together scholarly, mytho-poetic, literary critical, biographical, and dramatic genres not only to explore specifics of Nietzsche's 'madness,' but to question the 'reason/madness' o...(Read More)
 
 
Nietzsche's Aesthetic Turn
Nietzsche's Aesthetic Turn (November 1994)
Reading Nietzsche after Heidegger, Deleuze, Derrida
James J. Winchester - Author

This clearly written book, intended for both specialists and nonspecialists, focuses on Nietzsche's later writings, where he appears unsystematic and indifferent to questions of truth.

"This book undertakes three important and related tasks. The first is a comprehensive analysis of Nietzsche's notoriously slippery writings; the second is a critique of several major positions in Nietzsche interpretation; and the third is a proposal for a kind ...(Read More)

Red Square, Black Square (November 1994)
Organon for Revolutionary Imagination
Vladislav Todorov - Author

This book builds a new vision of the development of Russian revolutionary culture, bringing together fiction, criticism, utopian projects, manifestos, performance and film theory, religious philosophy, and the imaginary space of communism centered around the Mummy of Lenin.

Revolution and modernization are two main issues of the book. The author argues that in Modernism the work of art was conceived as a miniature of the world to come; thus,...(Read More)
 
 
The Necessary Angel
The Necessary Angel (November 1994)
Massimo Cacciari - Author
Miguel E. Vatter - Translator

"Cacciari tells a story. It is the story of the history of angels in Judaic, Islamic, and Christian traditions; and it continues as an amplification of the metaphor of angels in such writers as Dante, Rilke, Kafka, Benjamin, Klee, and Marc in order to speak about the phenomenology of language. Cacciari talks about angels in order to describe the contradictory nature of linguistic signs (absolute freedom and absolute determination). The greatest i...(Read More)
