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)
 
 
Idealism and the Endgame of Theory
Idealism and the Endgame of Theory (January 1994)
Three Essays by F. W. J. Schelling
Thomas Pfau - Editor/translator

This is a well chosen group of essays by Schelling; it gives a sense of Schelling's development which is not available from those works already translated; as such it is a much needed complement to what is already available in English.

"Apart from its contribution to a greater understanding of Schelling, the presentation of this volume does much to define the issues at the source of the recurrent preoccupation with identity in contemporary th...(Read More)
 
 
The Other Nietzsche
The Other Nietzsche (January 1994)
Joan Stambaugh - Author

"Nietzsche is more important today than ever. Widely read, and co-opted into almost every conceivable philosophical fad and fashion, he is urgently in need of the rescue this fine volume provides. The book is a rich feast of new insights into Nietzsche's texts, and into the philosophical questions they pose.

"Stambaugh is an internationally-recognized authority on Nietzsche. She knows the texts backwards and forwards--and is keyed in to al...(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)

German Mysticism From Hildegard of Bingen to Ludwig Wittgenstein (July 1993)
A Literary and Intellectual History

Stoudt, University of Toledo

The Experience of the Foreign
The Experience of the Foreign (August 1992)
Culture and Translation in Romantic Germany
Antoine Berman - Author
S. Heyvaert - Translator

"This book is the first authoritative analysis of the theory of translation in German Romanticism. In a systematic study of Herder, Goethe, Schlegel, Novalis, Humboldt, Schleiermacher, and Holderlin, Berman demonstrates the importance of the theory of translation for an understanding of German romantic culture, arguing that never before has the concept of translation been meditated in such detail and such depth. Indeed, fundamental questions that ...(Read More)

Essays on Heidegger and Continental Thought
Arleen B. Dallery - Editor
Charles E. Scott - Editor

Ethics and Danger examines Heidegger's association with German National Socialism and attempts to understand both the question of politics in Heidegger's thought and the thought that gives rise to that question. It explores the contribution of Heidegger's work to issues of ethics, technology, and social theory, as well as his relationship to other thinkers such as Parmenides, Aristotle, Hegel, Husserl, Benjamin, Levinas, Rorty, Foucault, and ...(Read More)
