In the Throe of Wonder
In the Throe of Wonder (July 1992)
Intimations of the Sacred in a Post-Modern World
Jerome A. Miller - Author

"Jerome Miller has done close to the impossible. He has brought the arcane prose of post-Heideggerian 'philosophy of difference' into contact with our initial wonder before the 'otherness' of the world, and so shown us the import of that current philosophical idiom. The reasoning is as tight as the subject is elusive; here is philosophy being done in a way that mitigates jargon and makes contact with that original wonder which impels us to want t...(Read More)
 
 
The Finitude of Being
The Finitude of Being (July 1992)
Joan Stambaugh - Author

"This book shows great insight into the main thrust of Heidegger's complex body of work, provides many clarifying examples, offers helpful parallels with the thought of other philosophers. And, perhaps most important of all, Stambaugh shows that her topic transcends narrow scholarly concerns, addressing the age-old and perennially vital question of the nature and limits of human knowledge and power.

"The author has a first-class reputation a...(Read More)
 
 
The Ring of Representation
The Ring of Representation (July 1992)
Stephen David Ross - Author

This book asks how we may undertake to represent representation.

"It's the ambitious question of how philosophical representation can proceed once it ceases to be naive regarding its representational means. Can philosophy recognize its own limits? (What is a 'limit' in this case?) It is Heidegger's question concerning the 'overcoming' of metaphysics. It is implicitly posed by Kant's 1st Critique: what is the status of the critique itself...(Read More)
 
 
The Step Not Beyond
The Step Not Beyond (July 1992)
Maurice Blanchot - Author
Lycette Nelson - Translator

This book is a translation of Maurice Blanchot's work that is of major importance to late 20th-century literature and philosophy studies. Using the fragmentary form, Blanchot challenges the boundaries between the literary and the philosophical. With the obsessive rigor that has always marked his writing, Blanchot returns to the themes that have haunted his work since the beginning: writing, death, transgression, the neuter, but here the figures a...(Read More)
 
 
The Title of the Letter
The Title of the Letter (April 1992)
A Reading of Lacan
Jean-Luc Nancy - Author
Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe - Author
François Raffoul - Translator
David Pettigrew - Translator

"I advise you to read a book called The Title of the Letter. It is with the greatest satisfaction that I have read it. I could not encourage its distribution enough. I can say, in a way, if it is a question of reading, that I have never been read so well..." --Jacques Lacan

This book is a close reading of Jacques Lacan's seminal essay, "The Agency of the Letter in the Unconscious or Reason Since Freud, " selected for t...(Read More)

The Banalization of Nihilism
The Banalization of Nihilism (February 1992)
Twentieth-Century Responses to Meaninglessness
Karen L. Carr - Author

"This book is an important contribution to the growing literature on nihilism and its role in contemporary culture. The commonalities the author demonstrates among such seemingly disparate thinkers as Nietzsche, Barth, and Rorty are illuminating, and I found especially intriguing her claim that Nietzsche and Barth are closer to one another than either is to Rorty." -- Donald A. Crosby, Colorado State University

After a historical and concept...(Read More)
 
 
The Normative Grounds of Social Criticism
The Normative Grounds of Social Criticism (December 1991)
Kant, Rawls, and Habermas
Kenneth Baynes - Author

"This is an outstanding contribution to the theory of justice. In addition to well-researched, lucid, and insightful accounts of its three principals, it offers far and away the best discussion available of the relative strengths and weaknesses of Rawls and Habermas. Baynes has provided us with an instructive example of how the usual, but often artificial divide between Continental and Anglo-American political theory can be successfully bridged, i...(Read More)
 
 
Alcyone
Alcyone (September 1991)
Nietzsche on Gifts, Noise, and Women
Gary Shapiro - Author

Shapiro explores an interrelated series of themes that contest and offer alternatives to some of the traditional concepts of metaphysics. The notion of gift giving and related ideas are seen to play fundamental roles in the economy of Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Shapiro articulates the relevance of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Marcel Mauss, and Georges Bataille for the thought of the gift and shows that Nietzsche's writing contains a conception of an ar...(Read More)
 
 
Merleau-Ponty Vivant
Merleau-Ponty Vivant (August 1991)
M. C. Dillon - Editor

"The topic is extremely significant. In my view, the study can help to reorient continental philosophy, and also have some impact on Anglo-American thought. Dillon is to be congratulated for having assembled such a splendid collection of essays." -- Fred Dallmayr, University of Notre Dame

"I find this a very impressive set of essays, both in terms of their quality and their representational characteristics. A true (and valid)...(Read More)
