Heidegger's Ways
Heidegger's Ways (February 1994)
Hans-Georg Gadamer - Author
John W. Stanley - Translator
Dennis J. Schmidt - Introduction

"The volume brings together interpretations of Heidegger's thought by a sympathetic follower recognized as one of today's greatest living philosophers. Some of the fifteen essays, written over a period of about 25 years, look back to Gadamer's early days as a student under Heidegger. These are not abstruse musings over points of interest only to eidegger specialists, but are engaging accounts of what Heidegger was up to, where he was coming from, ...(Read More)

Engendering Origins (December 1993)
Critical Feminist Readings in Plato and Aristotle
Bat-Ami Bar On - Editor

"This book presents a lively sense of cutting-edge feminist dialogue on the canonical works. While gender is at the center, the issues range from class structure to dualism to science to morality to epistemology. The Western philosophical tradition, including foundations of dualism and assumptions about neglect of women, is given a thorough reworking here." -- Inez Alfors, State University of New York, College at Oswego

Literature and Philosophy in Dialogue
Literature and Philosophy in Dialogue (December 1993)
Essays in German Literary Theory
Hans-Georg Gadamer - Author
Robert H. Paslick - Translation and introduction by

Hans-Georg Gadamer, the major proponent of philosophical hermeneutics, reveals himself here as a highly sensitive reader and critic of the German literary tradition. This is not the work of a specialist as narrowly defined in the typical literary study. Although he is a master of the techniques of criticism, Gadamer always sees the study of literature as a fundamentally human activity where human beings, generation after generation, pose their quest...(Read More)
 
 
Ideology and False Consciousness
Ideology and False Consciousness (July 1993)
Marx and His Historical Progenitors
Christopher L. Pines - Author

In this book Christopher Pines demonstrates that Karl Marx conceived of ideology as false consciousness. He shows how the different meanings of false consciousness found in the writings of Marx and Engels reflect the influence of the views of the Baconian-French Enlightenment and of Hegelian Feuerbachian philosophies. Pines argues that, for Marx, the diverse senses of false consciousness all generally denote a social consciousness that takes certa...(Read More)
 
 
Poetics, Speculation, and Judgment
Poetics, Speculation, and Judgment (July 1993)
The Shadow of the Work of Art from Kant to Phenomenology
Jacques Taminiaux - Author
Michael Gendre - Editor/translator

"Jacques Taminiaux has demonstrated his preeminence as a historian and philosopher of post-Kantian continental philosophy. In this book, he explicates the emergence of aesthetic judgment in Kant's thought, traces the theoretical provocation it provided for accounts in its wake in German Idealism, and finally, shows the effect of these considerations on developments in more recent accounts. To this end Taminiaux provides important readings of Schil...(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)
 
 
On Being and What There Is
On Being and What There Is (July 1992)
Classical Vaisesika and the History of Indian Ontology
Wilhelm Halbfass - Author

"It is a comprehensive study of some of the most difficult and poorly understood--yet central--issues of classical Indian philosophy. It covers an amazingly broad range of texts, explaining and analyzing some materials that have never been studied. It offers a synthetic picture of Vaisaesontology and convincingly explicates its 'genius.'
"No one has ever explained the concepts of substance, being, and universal in Vaisaesas comprehensively and ...(Read More)
