The Persistent Truth of Machiavellism

Michel Foucault's Epistemology
Walter Privitera - Author
Jean Keller - Translator

This is a unification of Michel Foucault's thought as a systematic epistemological project. Privitera shows that the method and unity of Foucault's writings can only be seen by examining their origins in the work of Bachelard and Canguilhem.
In this original reading, Privitera argues for a continuity in Foucault's work best seen when various themes and methodological strategies in his writings are traced back to the influence of Gaston B...(Read More)

Recovering the Ground
Recovering the Ground (October 1994)
Critical Exercises in Recollection
William H. Poteat - Author

This book sets forth an ontological Copernican revolution. By means of a critical phenomenology, it shifts the axis of reflection from the putatively bedrock dualisms in which philosophy was conceived, to our lively, intentional mindbodies that are ontologically antecedent to, beyond the grasp of, yet implicated in, all reflection.

In these exercises, reflection's center of gravity is shifted to our mindbodies, whose meditated what...(Read More)

Edmund Burke and the Politics of Progress
James Conniff - Author

Neither a polemic nor a highly specialized study, this book is a comprehensive assessment of Burke's political thought. Using evidence from such neglected sources as Burke's essays on history and law and making full use of his extensive correspondence, the author places Burke in the context of developments in a number of areas of eighteenth-century British intellectual life, ranging from philosophy to literature, and presents him as a key figure in ...(Read More)

“The Culture of Citizenship is provo...(Read More)
 
 
The Disenchantment of Reason

The Problem of Socrates in Modernity
Paul R. Harrison - Author

This book is an examination of nineteenth-century interpretations of Socrates by Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche in the light of the contemporary debates over rationality in the modern world. These interpretations of Socrates have fundamentally influenced modern and postmodern thought, and their complexity reflects both an attraction to, and a fear of, the peculiarly modern concept of reason that Socrates is read as embodying.

Socrates is ...(Read More)
