Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"The author addresses the central issue of the structure and limits of rationality. He does so on the basis of a comprehensive reading of a wide variety of voices ranging from high modernity to what we now call 'postmodernity.' The author is a wide and intelligent reader of Kant and the German Idealists (including Fichte and Schelling), nineteenth century hermeneutics, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, contemporary French 'postmodernism;' he is also familiar with the analytic tradition, which is very rare for someone with these interests. This unusual range is a very attractive feature of a book whose display of scholarship is truly impressive. The position the author defends is sensible and astute: he seeks out a conception of rationality which moves between the extremes of historicism and eternal truth, timeless theory and literary imagination." -- John D. Caputo, Villanova University

Stephen Watson is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.
