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
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)
 
 
Imagination and Chance
Imagination and Chance (January 1993)
The Difference Between the Thought of Ricoeur and Derrida
Leonard Lawlor - Author

"It is a patient and well organized exploration of the nexus between hermeneutics and deconstruction as embodied in the works of Ricoeur and Derrida. It should serve as a guide to the differences between the two projects. This is a very topical subject and should be of wide interest." -- Richard E. Palmer, MacMurray College

"This is one of the best--most accurate and precise--texts on Derrida's work in particular that I have seen. The anal...(Read More)
 
 
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)
 
 
The Step Not Beyond
The Step Not Beyond (July 1992)
Maurice Blanchot - Author
Lycette Nelson - Translator

This book is a translation of Maurice Blanchot's work that is of major importance to late 20th-century literature and philosophy studies. Using the fragmentary form, Blanchot challenges the boundaries between the literary and the philosophical. With the obsessive rigor that has always marked his writing, Blanchot returns to the themes that have haunted his work since the beginning: writing, death, transgression, the neuter, but here the figures a...(Read More)
 
 
The Hermeneutic Tradition
The Hermeneutic Tradition (December 1989)
From Ast to Ricoeur
Gayle L. Ormiston - Editor
Alan D. Schrift - Editor

Here are the major statements of the leading figures in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century German and French hermeneutic traditions--the major statements on the aims, methods, and techniques of interpretation. Some of these appear here for the first time in English.

This book establishes the context for contemporary analyses of interpretation. Part I traces the evolution of hermeneutics from Friedrich Ast and Friedrich Schleiermacher thr...(Read More)
 
 
Looking After Nietzsche
Looking After Nietzsche (October 1989)
Laurence A. Rickels - Editor

This book, like the post-Heideggerian reception of Nietzsche, rides out the splits and frays of the text offering an up-to-date look at international Nietzsche scholarship. Included are topics such as the collaboration of German thought with the rise of National Socialism and the alliance between Nietzschean genealogy and Freudian culture criticism in regard to technology and the unconscious, the status of moral imperatives from Kant to Heidegger, ...(Read More)
