Extensions (September 1992)
Essays on Interpretation, Rationality, and the Closure of Modernism
Stephen H. Watson - Author

"The author addresses the central issue of the structure and limits of rationality. He does so on the basis of a comprehensive reading of a wide variety of voices ranging from high modernity to what we now call 'postmodernity.' The author is a wide and intelligent reader of Kant and the German Idealists (including Fichte and Schelling), nineteenth century hermeneutics, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, contemporary French 'pos...(Read More)
 
 
Intimate Conflict
Intimate Conflict (August 1992)
Contradiction in Literary and Philosophical Discourse
Brian G. Caraher - Editor


In a comprehensive introduction and six tightly argued essays, the authors demonstrate how rich and suggestive the notion of contradiction in discourse can be.

Henry Johnstone on Hesiod, Charles Altieri on Plato and Socrates, Mili Clark on Milton and his God, Marc Shell on Kant and Hegel, Brian Caraher on Wordsworth and I. A. Richards, and Richard Kuhns on Melville, Freud, and Bertrand Russell contribute provocative analys...(Read More)
 
 
The Process of Democratization
The Process of Democratization (August 1992)
Georg Lukacs - Author
Susanne Bernhardt - Translator
Norman Levine - Translator

Georg Lukacs's The Process of Democratization provides indispensable reading for an understanding of the revolution that swept Russia and Eastern Europe during 1989-1990. Lukacs, a spokesman for anti-Bolshevik communism, was the advance guard of anti-Stalinist reform. Written in the aftermath of the Prague Spring, his book was a precursor to many of the Gorbachev reforms.

Lukacs was the leading communist intellectual in the world u...(Read More)
 
 
The Renewal of the Heidegger Kant Dialogue
The Renewal of the Heidegger Kant Dialogue (August 1992)
Action, Thought, and Responsibility
Frank Schalow - Author

"I regard this as one of the most important books on Kant and Heidegger that has yet been published. Once I picked it up, I could hardly put it down. Schalow succeeds, almost alone among Heidegger scholars, in bringing Heidegger's perspective to bear on questions of ethics, moral freedom, and its social implications--topics usually lost in arcane articles that find few readers. He also addresses the relationship between Heidegger and Kant with an...(Read More)
 
 
Kierkegaard and Kant
Kierkegaard and Kant (August 1992)
The Hidden Debt
Ronald M. Green - Author

"The author, an accomplished Kant scholar, is quite right to refer to this work as a detective story. The working hypothesis is that Kierkegaard's understanding of and relationship to Kant and Kantian philosophy is much closer and more positive than is customarily recognized, and that the lack of recognition of this affinity is a result of Kierkegaard's attempts to'obscure the degree of his indebtedness to the German thinker.'

"While much in...(Read More)
 
 
Matrix and line
Matrix and line (August 1992)
Derrida and the possibilities of postmodern social theory
Bill Martin - Author

"Bill Martin's Matrix and line is the most comprehensive and exciting of a number of recent North American attempts to assess the politics of deconstruction and the deconstruction of modernist politics. It shows how the question of the other, the marginal and the excluded are decisive for an emerging form of political thought and practice. A confrontation between Jacques Derrida's and Jurgen Habermas's philosophies of language sets the stag...(Read More)
 
 
The Experience of the Foreign
The Experience of the Foreign (August 1992)
Culture and Translation in Romantic Germany
Antoine Berman - Author
S. Heyvaert - Translator

"This book is the first authoritative analysis of the theory of translation in German Romanticism. In a systematic study of Herder, Goethe, Schlegel, Novalis, Humboldt, Schleiermacher, and Holderlin, Berman demonstrates the importance of the theory of translation for an understanding of German romantic culture, arguing that never before has the concept of translation been meditated in such detail and such depth. Indeed, fundamental questions that ...(Read More)
 
 
Beyond Hegel and Dialectic
Beyond Hegel and Dialectic (July 1992)
Speculation, Cult, and Comedy
William Desmond - Author

"I find the book utterly fascinating to read. It is fresh and challenging."-- Merold Westphal

"It is highly original and well written. It is free of all Hegelian, Scholastic jargon and as a result the reader is drawn into the narrative and thinks along with the author. It takes a fresh look at Hegel." -- Donald Verene

This book is a defense of speculative philosophy in the wake...(Read More)
 
 
Contextual Authority and Aesthetic Truth
Contextual Authority and Aesthetic Truth (July 1992)
James S. Hans - Author

This book explores the relationship between authority and context and attempts to establish the ways in which authority is a function of a particular agent or set of agents, and the degree to which it is a product of a context rather than an agent. The work is not a sociological or psychological study but rather a literary/philosophical speculation into the roots of our conceptions of authority. It declares all authority to be aesthetic in nature ...(Read More)
