Phenomenology
Phenomenology (November 1991)
Jean-Francois Lyotard - Author
Brian Beakley - Translator
Gayle L. Ormiston - Foreword by

This translation of Lyotard's first book, La Phenomenologie, supplies an important link to Lyotard's more recent works. Phenomenology presents a commentary on the phenomenological movement. From the dual perspectives of a work on, and of, phenomenology, Lyotard's text profiles the different aspects of phenomenology, focusing particularly on the writings of Hegel, Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, and Tran Duc Thao. Phenomenology marks ...(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)
 
 
Heidegger and the Project of Fundamental Ontology
Heidegger and the Project of Fundamental Ontology (September 1991)
Jacques Taminiaux - Author
Michael Gendre - Editor/translator

"It is by all means a dubious thing to depend and rest on what an author himself has brought to the forefront. The important thing is rather to give attention to those things he left shrouded in silence."

Such was the methodological advice, given in 1924 by Heidegger himself, that is rigorously followed in this book, Heidegger and the Project of Fundamental Ontology. The project involves the vast complex of problems that emerged arou...(Read More)
 
 
Merleau-Ponty Vivant

Nietzsche as Postmodernist
Nietzsche as Postmodernist (September 1990)
Essays Pro and Contra
Clayton Koelb - Edited and with an introduction by

"This book addresses the quite timely question of the place of Nietzsche's thought with respect to the Western tradition; the question whether Nietzsche defines or denies the very notion of philosophy as a tradition. With recent shifts in philosophical movements, especially those following in the wake of Heidegger, Nietzsche's work, always of interest, takes on a new and enlarged significance. The topic is extraordinarily timely and significant no...(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)
 
 
Margins of Political Discourse
Margins of Political Discourse (July 1989)
Fred Dallmayr - Author

"Margins of political discourse" are those border zones where paradigms intersect and where issues of order and disorder, meaning and non-meaning must be continually renegotiated.

Our age is marked by multiple dislocations, by political as well as philosophical paradigm shifts. Politically, a Europe-centered world order has given way to a decentered arena of global power struggles. Philosophically, traditional metaphysics -- itself ...(Read More)
