The Philosophical Foundations of Early German Romanticism
The Philosophical Foundations of Early German Romanticism (December 2003)
Manfred Frank - Author
Elizabeth Millán - Translator

Explores the philosophical contributions and contemporary relevance of early German Romanticism.

Often portrayed as a movement of poets lost in swells of passion, early German Romanticism has been generally overlooked by scholars in favor of the great system-builders of the post-Kantian period, Schelling and Hegel. In the twelve lectures collected here, Manfred Frank redresses this oversight, offering an in-depth expl...(Read More)

Derrida and the Future of Literature (September 1999)
Joseph G. Kronick - Author

Presented here is the fullest account to date of Derrida's unconventional understanding of literature and its importance to the development of a poststructural ethics. Kronick explains why Derrida has had such a great impact upon literary studies, and at the same time, he demonstrates how different Derrida's conception of literature is from the literary critic's. Focusing on such key topics as singularity, justice, law, aporia, and the event, this b...(Read More)
 
 
Manifesto for Philosophy
Manifesto for Philosophy (July 1999)
Alain Badiou - Author
Norman Madarasz - Editor, translator and introduction by

Contra those proclaiming the end of philosophy, Badiou aims to restore philosophical thought to the complete space of the truths that condition it.

“Alain Badiou’s work is a breath of fresh air in the ofttimes pious and romantic twentieth-century renderings of philosophy in which the latter seems to cover both everything and nothing. Delimiting and yet simultaneously radicalizing philosophy’s role, Badi...(Read More)
 
 
Fleeing the Universal
Fleeing the Universal (April 1998)
The Critique of Post-Rational Criticism
Carl Rapp - Author

Rapp mounts a devastating critique against the notion that literary and cultural theory since the 1960s has succeeded in effecting, or at least reporting, both the demise of philosophy and the emergence of a genuinely post-philosophical culture.

Fleeing the Universal takes issue with the popular view that contemporary literary and cultural theory has brilliantly effected, or at least brilliantly reported, the dem...(Read More)

Holderlin's Late Work - With an Essay on Keats and Melancholy
Anselm Haverkamp - Author
Vernon Chadwick - Translator

"One of the premier German/American critics of our time, Anselm Haverkamp interleaves the poetic word with its abyssal grounding in mourning.

A striking illumination of romantic texts and their theoretical foundations, Leaves of Mourning will compel vigorous responses from the contiguous c...(Read More)
 
 
Idea of Prose
Idea of Prose (July 1995)
Giorgio Agamben - Author

This book consists of prose pieces that find a new form of expression for philosophy, an expression showing the inseparability of idea and prose--the very form of truth.

In this book, thought seeks a new form, a new "prose." To this end, it brings into play the strategies of the apology, the aphorism, the short story, the fable, the riddle, and all those "simple forms" that are today no longer used, but whose task it has always been to...(Read More)
