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)

The Gadamer-Derrida Encounter
Diane P. Michelfelder - Editor
Richard E. Palmer - Editor

Before the encounter in 1981 between Hans-Georg Gadamer and Jacques Derrida, there had been virtually nor confrontation or dialogue between hermeneutics in Germany and post-structuralism in France, nor has there been since then. Part I of this book makes available for the first time in English the complete texts of the encounter at the Goethe Institute in Paris. This exchange raised such issues as Gadamer's relation to psychoanalytic interpretatio...(Read More)
 
 
Inner Experience
Inner Experience (April 1988)
Georges Bataille - Author
Leslie Anne Boldt-Irons - Translation and introduction by

"English readers will now be able to appreciate what many consider Bataille's finest work, undoubtedly one of the outstanding texts of modern French writing, just as they will be able to fill a major gap in the history of post-structuralist thought. Whereas Bataille may be the acknowledged forefather of such figures as Barthes, Foucault, and Derrida, this centrality is often not appreciated by American admirers of the latter."
-- Michele Richman...(Read More)

Adriaan Theodoor Peperzak - Author

The book begins with the problem of the relationship between systematic philosophy and the history of philosophy. Why does philosophy attach so much importance to history? Consideration of this question is an essential part of metaphysics, and it has important consequences for the methodology of both history and philosophy.

An analysis of the problem that begins the book leads to many other fundamental questions concerning the nature of philo...(Read More)
