Fleeing the Universal
Fleeing the Universal (April 1998)
The Critique of Post-Rational Criticism
Carl Rapp - Author

Rapp mounts a devastating critique against the notion that literary and cultural theory since the 1960s has succeeded in effecting, or at least reporting, both the demise of philosophy and the emergence of a genuinely post-philosophical culture.

Fleeing the Universal takes issue with the popular view that contemporary literary and cultural theory has brilliantly effected, or at least brilliantly reported, the dem...(Read More)

The Concept of Darstellung in German Critical Discourse
Martha B. Helfer - Author

Examines the notion of Darstellung [representation] in the critical discourse of German Idealism and Romanticism, paying particular attention to Kant, Fichte, Novalis, and Kleist.
"I highly recommend The Retreat of Representation . Helfer's pursuit of the concept of Darstellung from Kant through the German Romantics is fresh and significant. Her patient and accessible readings are compelling, and they complement one a...(Read More)
Leaves of Mourning
Leaves of Mourning (March 1996)
Holderlin's Late Work - With an Essay on Keats and Melancholy
Anselm Haverkamp - Author
Vernon Chadwick - Translator

"One of the premier German/American critics of our time, Anselm Haverkamp interleaves the poetic word with its abyssal grounding in mourning. The result is an extraordinary work of Benjaminian allegory, which unfolds the intricacies of Holderlin's late works and the melancholic excesses of Keats. A striking illumination of romantic texts and their theoretical foundations, Leaves of Mourning will compel vigorous responses from the contiguous c...(Read More)
Idea of Prose
Idea of Prose (July 1995)
Giorgio Agamben - Author

This book consists of prose pieces that find a new form of expression for philosophy, an expression showing the inseparability of idea and prose--the very form of truth.

In this book, thought seeks a new form, a new "prose." To this end, it brings into play the strategies of the apology, the aphorism, the short story, the fable, the riddle, and all those "simple forms" that are today no longer used, but whose task it has always been to...(Read More)
On Bataille
On Bataille (July 1995)
Critical Essays
Leslie Anne Boldt-Irons - Editor

Essays on the French writer and critic Georges Bataille, that examine his thought in relation to Hegel, Nietzsche, and Derrida.

"I will say that Leslie Boldt-Irons' collection represents the most accurate and successful attempt made to popularize--without reducing--Bataille's thought in the United States. For this reason, it constitutes an indispensable asset for any scholar, Bataillian or not, in the field of postmoder...(Read More)
Solitudes (July 1995)
From Rimbaud to Heidegger
Marc Froment-Meurice - Author

The author reads Rimbaud, Mallarme. Holderlin, and Trakl in relation to philosophy, and in particular to Heidegger.

"Not only has Froment-Meurice tackled the most demanding of poetic questions--what is modernity?--but he has not shied away from the truth that this is also and perhaps above all a political question, understanding this term in the broad sense. His work will be of importance to more than one constituency; scholars in ...(Read More)
The Necessary Angel
The Necessary Angel (November 1994)
Massimo Cacciari - Author
Miguel E. Vatter - Translator

"Cacciari tells a story. It is the story of the history of angels in Judaic, Islamic, and Christian traditions; and it continues as an amplification of the metaphor of angels in such writers as Dante, Rilke, Kafka, Benjamin, Klee, and Marc in order to speak about the phenomenology of language. Cacciari talks about angels in order to describe the contradictory nature of linguistic signs (absolute freedom and absolute determination). The greatest i...(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)
Of the Sublime: Presence in Question
Of the Sublime: Presence in Question (July 1993)
Essays by Jean-Francois Courtine, Michel Deguy, Eliane Escoubas, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Louis Marin, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Jacob Rogozinski
Jeffrey S. Librett - Translator

"With its ruined castles and uncanny ghosts, the sublime has always been the secret truth of deconstruction, and indeed of post-structuralism in general. Hence it comes that these essays were first collected under the auspices of a series called 'L'Extreme contemporain.' Combining work by some of France's leading philosophers and by some of their most gifted students, it offers unique insights into the latest thinking about Schelling, Hegel, Nietz...(Read More)
