Philosophy without Foundations
Philosophy without Foundations (October 1994)
Rethinking Hegel
William Maker - Author

"The author offers a forthright, closely-reasoned, often pungently-worded series of arguments, often developing considerable persuasive momentum for considering Hegel as a non-metaphysical, non-foundational thinker, and for recognizing the continuing relevance of Hegel to ongoing philosophical discussion. Ever since the late 1960s contemporary philosophy has been rediscovering the 'radical' Hegel buried under lazy interpretations from the past. Th...(Read More)
 
 
False Fixes
False Fixes (August 1994)
The Cultural Politics of Drugs, Alcohol, and Addictive Relations
David Forbes - Author

"David Forbes has given us a book on drugs for the post-Reagan era. Even now there are few treatments of this subject from the point of view of its victims, the addicts. This book is an invaluable source for new social policy and widespread debate in the social sciences." -- Stanley Aronowitz, Graduate Center, City University of New York

This book examines recent efforts to rid society of addictions and finds them wanting. The author exami...(Read More)
 
 
Chaosmos
Chaosmos (July 1994)
Literature, Science, and Theory
Philip Kuberski - Author

"Kuberski has a talent for boldly synthesizing large currents of contemporary thought and extrapolating equally bold conclusions. While some of his assertions will give pause to scholars with a more empirical bent, there are few pages in this book where the reader does not experience the shock of the new. The concerns addressed in this book, ranging from revisions in critical theory to alternate metaphysical foundations of a postmodern epistemolog...(Read More)
 
 
Myth and Modernity
Myth and Modernity (July 1994)
Postcritical Reflections
Milton Scarborough - Author

"This book is an important voice in the current debate about the implications of pluralism, relativism, and nihilism for the culture and for the educational enterprise. But the fundamental contribution of the book is its hypothesis about how we think." -- William Elford Rogers, Furman University

This book surveys selected modern theories of myth from philosophy, religion, anthropology, sociology, and psychoanalysis to demonstrate a common com...(Read More)
 
 
Power and Emotion in Infant-Toddler Day Care
Power and Emotion in Infant-Toddler Day Care (July 1994)
Robin Lynn Leavitt - Author

"The book is quite powerful. I couldn't put it down! I read it every chance I got. I love the way it brings together several theories, real examples, and frank discussion to paint a picture of life for toddlers in child care. We have not examined the daily lives of children in care closely enough. The issues raised here are vital to healthy development."-- Kimberlee Whaley, Ohio State University, Laboratory for Child and Family Studies

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)
 
 
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)
 
 
The Poetics of the Common Knowledge
The Poetics of the Common Knowledge (November 1993)
Don Byrd - Author

"Don Byrd's book presents postmodernism as a continuation of the metaphysical skeptical tradition, reaching its dead end with deconstruction. Byrd's alternative in literary studies is a return to poetry as a revitalization of language. The book is very learned, and written with verve and vigor." -- Mihai I. Spariosu, The University of Georgia

"This is an important, provocative book. At a time when poetics--especially that of the dif...(Read More)
 
 
Critifiction
Critifiction (November 1993)
Postmodern Essays
Raymond Federman - Author

"I like the way this book makes available critical reflections on postmodern or 'experimental' literature from the perspective of one of its central practitioners in the West today. We hear Federman's voice speaking from both inside and outside the scholarly and pedagogical discourse on postmodernism--a discourse to which he brings the intensity, engagement, vitality of the fiction writer for whom the 'fate' of the postmodern novel is not merely an...(Read More)
