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)

Ethics and Danger
Ethics and Danger (July 1992)
Essays on Heidegger and Continental Thought
Arleen B. Dallery - Editor
Charles E. Scott - Editor
P. Holley Roberts - With

Ethics and Danger examines Heidegger's association with German National Socialism and attempts to understand both the question of politics in Heidegger's thought and the thought that gives rise to that question. It explores the contribution of Heidegger's work to issues of ethics, technology, and social theory, as well as his relationship to other thinkers such as Parmenides, Aristotle, Hegel, Husserl, Benjamin, Levinas, Rorty, Foucault, and ...(Read More)
 
 
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)
