Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This is the first anthology of commentary on Sallis that shows what is genuinely unique in his thought: the transformative relation of reason and imagination in thinking "after Heidegger."

This book demonstrates that the kind of philosophy called Continental thought belongs to America in its own right. It reflects the depth, originality, and revolutionary character of Sallis's "re-doing" imagination--of his twisting imagination free from a metaphysics of presence and of subjectivity.

The book includes essays by Walter Biemel, Peg Birmingham, Walter Brogan, Francoise Dastur, Jacques Derrida, Parvis Emad, Eliane Escoubas, Bernard Freydberg, Rodolphe Gasche, Michel Haar, John Llewelyn, Kenneth Maly, Adriaan Peperzak, James Risser, and Charles Scott. This array of contributors demonstrates the place that Sallis's work has on the forefront of contemporary Continental thought.

The book concludes with an original piece by John Sallis himself, in which he thinks the philosophical sense of wonder in Aristotle, Plato, Hegel, the end of metaphysics, and Heidegger.

"Sallis is, in my opinion, the single most influential American continental thinker. This book furthers what is genuinely unique in Sallis's work: the transformative relation of thought and imagination in thinking 'after Heidegger.' Sallis's essay in response to the anthology is a genuine addition to the growing literature on Heidegger's notion of attunement, specifically on the notion of wonder, in addition to being a reply to specific authors." -- Tom Davis, Whitman College

Kenneth Maly is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse.
