Discipline and Critique
Discipline and Critique (February 1994)
Kant, Poststructuralism, and the Problem of Resistance
Andrew Cutrofello - Author

"This is an excellently written, witty, and challenging book. It extends a Foucauldian debate on 'discipline' through an interesting critique of Kantian moralism and opens up new perspectives on a principled resistance in philosophy."
-- Martin Donougho, University of South Carolina

"Anyone interested in the current debates on poststructuralism and postmodernism, as well as anyone interested in the history of philosophy, or the connectio...(Read More)
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)
Heidegger and the Essence of Man
Heidegger and the Essence of Man (September 1993)
Michel Haar - Author
William McNeill - Translator
Herbert L. Dreyfus - Foreword by

Michel Haar argues that Heidegger went too far in transferring all traditional properties of man to being. Haar examines what is left, after this displacement, not only of human identity, but perhaps more importantly, of nature, life, embodiment--of the flesh of human existence. This sensitive yet critical reading of Heidegger raises such issues in relation to questions of language, technology, human freedom, and history. In doing so, it provides...(Read More)
Poetics, Speculation, and Judgment
Poetics, Speculation, and Judgment (July 1993)
The Shadow of the Work of Art from Kant to Phenomenology
Jacques Taminiaux - Author
Michael Gendre - Editor/translator

"Jacques Taminiaux has demonstrated his preeminence as a historian and philosopher of post-Kantian continental philosophy. In this book, he explicates the emergence of aesthetic judgment in Kant's thought, traces the theoretical provocation it provided for accounts in its wake in German Idealism, and finally, shows the effect of these considerations on developments in more recent accounts. To this end Taminiaux provides important readings of Schil...(Read More)
Towards a Phenomenological Ethics
Towards a Phenomenological Ethics (October 1992)
Ethos and the Life-World
Werner Marx - Author

This book investigates the possibility of a contemporary ethics of compassion based upon the experience of human mortality. During an age in which the traditional metaphysical guarantors of order, transcendent sources of meaning, and appeals to human rationality are becoming historical phenomena, it is important to investigate whether an alternative source of measure for human conduct can be discovered through phenomenological analysis.

Marx...(Read More)
Hermeneutics and Education
Hermeneutics and Education (October 1992)
Shaun Gallagher - Author

"This is a pathbreaking book. It proposes a fourfold typology of hermeneutics--conservative, moderate, critical, and radical--and unfolds four basic principles in each. Gallagher presents a philosophically careful and solid discussion of each position and four principles central to it, including evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses; then he searches out parallel standpoints in current educational theory and shows whether or how each parall...(Read More)
Foucault's Nietzschean Genealogy
Foucault's Nietzschean Genealogy (September 1992)
Truth, Power, and the Subject
Michael Mahon - Author

"There has long been a need to overcome the view that Foucault is totally unique, a philosophical eccentricity. In exploring him as a Nietzschean, Mahon meets this need in a very close reading of Foucault and one which is extremely well written.

"I regard it as very important for the world of scholarship about Foucault, but also for Nietzsche. Mahon shows that Nietzsche himself can lead to an important style of concrete critique.

Extensions (September 1992)
Essays on Interpretation, Rationality, and the Closure of Modernism
Stephen H. Watson - Author

"The author addresses the central issue of the structure and limits of rationality. He does so on the basis of a comprehensive reading of a wide variety of voices ranging from high modernity to what we now call 'postmodernity.' The author is a wide and intelligent reader of Kant and the German Idealists (including Fichte and Schelling), nineteenth century hermeneutics, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, contemporary French 'pos...(Read More)
The Process of Democratization
The Process of Democratization (August 1992)
Georg Lukacs - Author
Susanne Bernhardt - Translator
Norman Levine - Translator

Georg Lukacs's The Process of Democratization provides indispensable reading for an understanding of the revolution that swept Russia and Eastern Europe during 1989-1990. Lukacs, a spokesman for anti-Bolshevik communism, was the advance guard of anti-Stalinist reform. Written in the aftermath of the Prague Spring, his book was a precursor to many of the Gorbachev reforms.

Lukacs was the leading communist intellectual in the world u...(Read More)
