Double Truth (December 1994)
John Sallis - Author

This is an anthology of deconstructive writings on the doubly difficult theme of truth by the foremost American philosopher of postmodernity.

Heidegger from Metaphysics to Thought
Heidegger from Metaphysics to Thought (December 1994)
Dominique Janicaud - Author
Jean-Francois Mattei - Author
Michael Gendre - Translator

"Philosophy has come to an end" claimed Heidegger in the final posthumously published interview he granted to Der Spiegel. The goal of Janicaud's chapters ("Overcoming Metaphysics?," "Heideggeriana," "Metamorphosis of the Undecidable," and the dialogue "Heidegger in New York") first of all is to clarify the project of "overcoming" metaphysics, a project that Heidegger himself recognized as open to innumerable misunderstandings. Is it really...(Read More)

Individuation and Identity in Early Modern Philosophy
Individuation and Identity in Early Modern Philosophy (July 1994)
Descartes to Kant
Kenneth F. Barber - Editor
Jorge J. E. Gracia - Editor

Philosophy in the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries has traditionally been characterized as being primarily concerned with epistemological issues. This book is not intended to overturn this characterization but rather to balance it through an examination of equally important metaphysical, or ontological, positions held, explicitly or implicitly, by philosophers in this period.

Major philosophers whose views are discusse...(Read More)

Philosophical Foundations of Historical Knowledge
Philosophical Foundations of Historical Knowledge (July 1994)
Murray G. Murphey - Author

"This is philosophy of the highest order. Several of the most fundamental and challenging philosophical problems are discussed with analytical rigor, subtlety, originality, technical sophistication, detailed familiarity with the vast relevant literature, and lucidity. What I find most exciting is the way Murphey is able to make a powerful case for pragmatic naturalism and natural realism on the basis of an amazing mastery of the vast recent literatu...(Read More)

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)
