Such a Deathly Desire (August 2007)
Pierre Klossowski - Author

Shocking, brilliant, and eccentric, the French author, translator, and artist Pierre Klossowski (1905–2001) exerted a profound effect on French intellectual culture throughout the twentieth century.

Sartre and Adorno (August 2007)
The Dialectics of Subjectivity
David Sherman - Author

Systematic comparison of Sartre and Adorno that focuses on their theories of the subject.

Focusing on the notion of the subject in Sartre’s and Adorno’s philosophies, David Sherman argues that they offer complementary accounts of the subject that circumvent the excesses of its classical formation, yet are sturdy enough to support a concept of political agency, which is lacking in both poststructuralism a...(Read More)
 
 
Ellipsis
Ellipsis (July 2007)
Of Poetry and the Experience of Language after Heidegger, Holderlin, and Blanchot
William S. Allen - Author

Examines poetic language in the work of Heidegger, Hölderlin, and Blanchot.

What is the nature of poetic language when its experience involves an encounter with finitude; with failure, loss, and absence? For Martin Heidegger this experience is central to any thinking that would seek to articulate the meaning of being, but for Friedrich Hölderlin and Maurice Blanchot it is a mark of the tragic and unanswera...(Read More)

F. W. J. Schelling - Author
Mason Richey - Translator
Markus Zisselsberger - Translator
Jason M. Wirth - Foreword by

Appearing in English for the first time, Schelling’s 1842 lectures develop the idea that many philosophical concepts are born of religious-mythological notions.

F. W. J. Schelling - Author
Bruce Matthews - Translated with an introduction and notes by

The first English translation of Schelling’s final “existential system.”

The Berlin lectures in The Grounding of Positive Philosophy, appearing here for the first time in English, advance Schelling’s final “existential system” as an alternative to modernity’s reduction of philosophy to a purely formal science of reason.

Tragedies of Spirit (October 2006)
Tracing Finitude in Hegel's Phenomenology
Theodore D. George - Author

Examines tragedy in Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit.

In Tragedies of Spirit, Theodore D. George engages Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit to explore the philosophical significance of tragedy in post-Kantian continental thought.

Words in Blood, Like Flowers
Words in Blood, Like Flowers (October 2006)
Philosophy and Poetry, Music and Eros in Holderlin, Nietzsche, and Heidegger
Babette E. Babich - Author

A philosophical exploration of the power that poetry, music, and the erotic have on us.

Why did Nietzsche claim to have “written in blood”? Why did Heidegger remain silent after World War II about his participation in the Nazi Party? How did Hölderlin’s voice and the voices of other, more ancient poets come to echo in philosophy? Words in Blood, Like Flowers is a classical expression of...(Read More)

F. W. J. Schelling - Author
Jeff Love - Translated with an introduction and notes by
Johannes Schmidt - Translated with an introduction and notes by

Schelling’s masterpiece investigating evil and freedom.

Jeff Love and Johannes Schmidt offer a fresh translation of Schelling’s enigmatic and influential masterpiece, widely recognized as an indispensable work of German Idealism.  The text is an embarrassment of riches—both wildly adventurous and somberly prescient. Martin Heidegger claimed that it was “one of the deepest works of Germ...(Read More)
 
 
Epochal Discordance
Epochal Discordance (September 2006)
Holderlin's Philosophy of Tragedy
Veronique M. Foti - Author

Examines the German poet Hölderlin’s philosophical insights into tragedy.

Friedrich Hölderlin must be considered not only a significant poet but also a philosophically important thinker within German Idealism. In both capacities, he was crucially preoccupied with the question of tragedy, yet, surprisingly, this book is the first in English to explore fully his philosophy of tragedy. Focusing on...(Read More)
 
 
Unquiet Understanding
Unquiet Understanding (September 2006)
Gadamer's Philosophical Hermeneutics
Nicholas Davey - Author

Argues that Gadamer’s philosophical hermeneutics merits a radical reappraisal.

“This is the most enlightening introduction available to Gadamer’s philosophical hermeneutics. It redefines transcendence and translation in hermeneutical terms, but it goes substantially beyond this to offer an introduction to many other topics in philosophical hermeneutics.” — Richard E. Palmer, coedito...(Read More)
