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)
 
 
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)
