A Question that Came Across ...

gregory recco writes (a comment on nancy's globalization)
Translators work very hard and make a pittance. Maybe they do it for the love of what they translate, or for other, less noble motives. Still, you're stealing their labor, and you should stop. The only people you're "rising up" against are overworked and underappreciated translators (and everyone else who works at the presses who publish these books).

What part of "No part of this book may be stored in a retrieval system or transmitted in any form ... without the prior permission in writing of the publisher" did you not understand?

I think here a question that should be under-stood.
[above all, what a brute way of speaking to the other]

the focus on 'you' is somewhat misleading. anyone can download any of the books from gigapedia or avax anytime. [this is already said in the header] I'm not denying responsibility. for example "made in istanbul" ones: when people heard of this blog here, they said hey we can contribute, so I'm publishing books scanned by students in istanbul, things developed in a way that I'm totally out of action, I just publish.

coming to poor translators; I also translate and totally agree with you. but here is the issue: an original book is about 25 - 50 dollars (for Husserl 100s), think a student like me who has 300$, and reading 6books in a month minimum. how can I live m'lord? or the students in 3rd world, what should they do? be silenced, obey information inequality. I have some pdf's that are not even in one library of turkey. [have you heard anything called 'print capitalism'?]

world is not so big brother, capitalism sucks, believe me. "my people" are hungry: for food, for serenity, for knowledge. colonialism fucks believe me, even in its handsome form of neo-colonialism, it deprivates Earth.

(do you understand this from your ivory tower? have you been in middle east? we try to dwell Hölderlin, home is not possible anymore. yes. but not because of the flight of the gods. bombardments... have you seen anyone dying because of the blameless west? you think the books and bombs have no relation, right? former is more destructive believe me.)

if there is a shame to be shared that is for all of us. Benjamin's 'the idea of mystery' on Kafka's "the trial" says a lot, all passed away, and still we are. and for you I am not. I try to understand Kurtz sorry I'm too dumb.

I don't how to handle world appropriately brother, if anyone knows please write down, at least a fragment, a comment, a testimony.

for my part I apologize. (I've no intenttion to normalize my acts by appealing economic anthropology). Being a muslim, it's haram [forbidden by religion(yet islam isn't a "religion" in western sense, there is no god but Law)] for me to use any thing without the permission of its owner. like my brothers in palestine who do haram by being suicide bombers, I'm on the violent track: an immense hecatomb of what is named 'right' by law. it's really hard for me. sometimes I get sick of this, look at posting dates sometimes weeks passed, I couldn't post anything. this is no attempt to justify. we bomb our body even it's wrong, I do wrong volitionally. I'll dynamite world, this is a promise to burn babylon.

syncopation of history on the side of the "rest" desolates even the abgrund, we suicide though. figure, muhmen, speechless we are at the closure of history. sorry, probably we have no "understanding" in the Kantian sense. I can't.

first photo is from sniper's alley in sarajevo, says all that is spelled above.
second photo is from palestine, he is sheikh ahmed yasin, rocketed by occupation forces in palestine. hatred, pure... trial haven't started yet.

edit: my voice may sound too abstract; indeed, symbolic violence takes subject into parentheses, ground slips away, too much.

please leave comments regarding the question if you are using this blog, I'm really thinking of closing down this space.

Jean-Luc Nancy - The Creation of the World or Globalization



The Creation of the World or Globalization
(SUNY Series in Contemporary French Thought)
by Jean-Luc Nancy

Francois Raffoul (Translator), David Pettigrew (Translator)

# Paperback: 129 pages
# Publisher: State University of New York Press (February 8, 2007)

Appearing in English for the first time, Jean-Luc Nancy's 2002 book reflects on globalization and its impact on our being-in-the-world. Developing a contrast in the French language between two terms that are usually synonymous, or that are used interchangeably, namely globalisation (globalization) and mondialisation (world-forming), Nancy undertakes a rethinking of what "world-forming" might mean. At stake in this distinction is for him nothing less than two possible destinies of our humanity, and of our time. On the one hand, with globalization, there is the uniformity produced by a global economical and technological logic leading to the contrary of an inhabitable world, "the un-world" (l'im-monde)--as Nancy refers to it--an un-world that entails social disintegration, misery, and injustice. And, on the other hand, there is the possibility of an authentic world-forming, that is, of a making of the world and of a making sense that Nancy calls a "creation" of the world. Nancy understands such world-forming in terms of an inexhaustible struggle for justice. This book is an important contribution by Nancy to a philosophical reflection on the phenomenon of globalization and a further development on his earlier works on our being-in-common, justice, and a-theological existence.

"Graced by a lucid introduction from his superb translators, Jean-Luc Nancy's The Creation of the World or Globalization plots the creative world-forming possibilities by which, in the name of a certain justice, the nihilism of globalization may be resisted. The future of the world hangs in the balance; Nancy makes a brilliant contribution to thinking new beginnings." -- David Wood, author of The Step Back: Ethics and Politics after Deconstruction

Heidegger - Poetry, Language, Thought

Poetry, Language, Thought
(Perennial Classics)
by Martin Heidegger

# Paperback: 256 pages
# Publisher: Harper Perennial Modern Classics (November 6, 2001)

Essential reading for students and anyone interested in the great philosophers, this book opened up appreciation of Martin Heidegger beyond the confines of philosophy to the reaches of poetry. In Heidegger's thinking, poetry is not a mere amusement or form of culture but a force that opens up the realm of truth and brings man to the measure of his being and his world.

Schelling - Philosophical Investigations into the Essence of Human Freedom

Philosophical Investigations into the Essence of Human Freedom
(Suny Series in Contemporary Continental Philosophy)
by Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Von Schelling

Jeff Love (Translator), Johannes Schmidt (Translator)

Jeff Love and Johannes Schmidt offer a fresh translation of Schelling's enigmatic and influential masterpiece, widely recognized as an indispensable work of German Idealism. The text is an embarrassment of riches--both wildly adventurous and somberly prescient. Martin Heidegger claimed that it was "one of the deepest works of German and thus also of Western philosophy" and that it utterly undermined Hegel's monumental Science of Logic before the latter had even appeared in print. Schelling carefully investigates the problem of evil by building on Kant's notion of radical evil, while also developing an astonishingly original conception of freedom and personality that exerted an enormous (if subterranean) influence on the later course of European philosophy from Schopenhauer and Kierkegaard through Heidegger

This translation of Schelling's notoriously difficult and densely allusive work provides extensive annotations and translations of a series of texts (by Boehme, Baader, Lessing, Jacobi, and Herder), hard to find or previously unavailable in English, whose presence in the Philosophical Investigations is unmistakable and highly significant. This handy study edition of Schelling's masterpiece will prove useful for scholars and students alike.

Heidegger - The Essence Of Human Freedom: An Introduction To Philosophy

The Essence Of Human Freedom: An Introduction To Philosophy
(Continuum Impacts)
by Martin Heidegger
Ted Sadler (Translator)

# Paperback: 220 pages
# Publisher: Continuum International Publishing Group; New Ed edition (May 2005)

Over the past decade, an abundant number of Heidegger's writings have been translated into English. Key among them are the lectures he delivered both prior to and following the writing of his magnum opus, Being and Time, which allow us as never before to chart Heidegger's philosophical development. Here are two new additions to the series. The Essence of Human Freedom, which derives from a set of lectures Heidegger delivered in 1930 at Freiburg, focuses on human freedom as the leading question of philosophy. Heidegger contends that this emphasis on freedom enables us to understand philosophy as a "going-after-the-whole" that is at the same time a "going-to-our-roots." In other words, we must search for the essence of human freedom in the constant presence of being-in-the-world that precedes and grounds philosophical thinking. Heidegger plunders Kant's understandings of freedom and Aristotle's theories of metaphysics to establish his own theory that the understanding of human freedom provides the starting point for philosophy (metaphysics). One year later, Heidegger turned his gaze on the essence of truth. In a lecture course delivered at Freiburg in 1931-32, he engaged in a close philosophical reading of Plato's "Allegory of the Cave" and a section from Plato's Theaetetus. In Plato's allegory, men are shackled and can only see the shadows cast on the cave's wall by a fire. These shadows are their reality. But when one of them escapes into the sunlight, he sees that the shadows are not reality but illusion. For Heidegger, this man-who in Plato's story becomes the model for a philosopher-has had the truth revealed to him. Truth cannot be possessed merely as correct propositions, as Heidegger argues that the history of philosophy has taught. Rather, he contends, "the question of the essence of truth as unhiddenness is the question of the history of human essence." A shorter essay that derives from this lecture can be found in both Basic Writings and in Existence and Being. These new volumes reveal Heidegger's consummate exegetical and hermeneutical skills, but given their technical philosophical jargon, they are recommended only for academic or large public libraries.

Nietzsche and Metaphysics

Nietzsche and Metaphysics
(Oxford Philosophical Monographs)
by Peter Poellner

# Paperback: 336 pages
# Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA; New Ed edition (June 15, 2000)

"Poellner brings philosophical learning of an impressive scope to bear on his reading of Nietzsche, situating his views in relation to those of his intellectual forbears and testing them against those of contemporary analytic philosophers."--The Review of Metaphysics
"...those wishing to discover a "new" yet "traditional" Nietzsche may easily encounter him in Nietzsche and Metaphysics."--German Studies Review

Product Description
Poellner here offers a comprehensive interpretation of Nietzsche's later ideas on epistemology and metaphysics, drawing extensively not only on his published works but also his voluminous notebooks, largely unpublished in English. He examines Nietzsche's various distinct lines of thought on
the traditionally central areas of philosophy and shows in what specific sense Nietzsche, as he himself claimed, might be said to have moved beyond these questions. He pays considerable attention throughout both to the historical context of Nietzsche's writings and to subsequent developments in
philosophy--English-language as well as Continental.

Nietzsche's Ethics and his War on "Morality"

Nietzsche's Ethics and his War on "Morality"
by Simon May

# Paperback: 232 pages
# Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA; New Ed edition (November 21, 2002)

`Review from previous edition In sum ... this is a serious and thought provoking analysis that challenges both Nietzsche and his interpreters. May's book stands out from the rest in his rigorous analysis of the implicit principles of life-enhancement and in his challenging of both the necessity of Nietzsche's rejection of the transcendent and the viability of his individualism to his overall project of life-enhancement.' International Philosophical Quarterly

`This book has many strengths, one of which is May's rigorous and patient scrutiny of each of Nietzsche's transvalued ethical concepts.' International Philosophical Quarterly

`lucid and rigorous' International Philosophical Quarterly

`his claims offer significant challenges to entrenched understandings of many aspects of Nietzsche's moral philosophy, and further consideration of these challenges is likely to be fruitful.' Tom Bailey, New Nietzsche Studies Journal

`These discussions ... provide numerous stimulating approaches to particular aspects of Nietzsche's moral philosophy.' Tom Bailey, New Nietzsche Studies Journal

Product Description
Nietzsche famously attacked traditional morality, and propounded a controversial ethics of "life-enhancement". Simon May presents a radically new view of Nietzsche's thought, which is shown to be both revolutionary and conservative, and to have much to offer us today after the demise of old
values and the "death of God".

After Nietzsche: Notes Towards a Philosophy of Ecstasy

After Nietzsche: Notes Towards a Philosophy of Ecstasy
by Jill Marsden

# Hardcover: 232 pages
# Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan (September 6, 2002)

This book explores the imaginative possibilities for philosophy created by Nietzsche's sustained reflection on the phenomenon of ecstasy. From The Birth of Tragedy to his experimental "physiology of art," Nietzsche examines the aesthetic, erotic, and sacred dimensions of rapture, hinting at how an ecstatic philosophy is realized in his elusive doctrine of Eternal Return. Jill Marsden pursues the implications of this legacy for contemporary Continental thought via analyses of such voyages in ecstasy as Kant, Schopenhauer, Schreber, and Bataille.

Wittgenstein, Language and Information: "Back to the Rough Ground!"

Wittgenstein, Language and Information: "Back to the Rough Ground!"
(Information Science and Knowledge Management)
by David Blair

# Hardcover: 358 pages
# Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (May 5, 2006)

This book is an extension of the discussions presented in Blairs 1990 book Language and Representation in Information Retrieval, which was selected as the "Best Information Science Book of the Year" by the American Society for Information Science (ASIS). That work stated that the Philosophy of Language had the best theory for understanding meaning in language, and within the Philosophy of Language, the work of philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein was found to be most perceptive. The success of that book provided an incentive to look more deeply into Wittgensteins philosophy of language, and how it can help us to understand how to represent the intellectual content of information. This is what the current title does, and by using this theory it creates a firm foundation for future Information Retrieval research.

The work consists of four related parts. Firstly, a brief overview of Wittgensteins philosophy of language and its relevance to information systems. Secondly, a detailed explanation of Wittgensteins late philosophy of language and mind. Thirdly, an extended discussion of the relevance of his philosophy to understanding some of the problems inherent in information systems, especially those systems which rely on retrieval based on some representation of the intellectual content of that information. And, fourthly, a series of detailed footnotes which cite the sources of the numerous quotations and provide some discussion of the related issues that the text inspires.

Wittgenstein and His Interpreters

Wittgenstein and His Interpreters
by Guy Kahane (Editor), Edward Kanterian (Editor), Oskari Kuusela (Editor)

# Hardcover: 368 pages
# Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell (September 17, 2007)

"Wittgenstein and his Interpreters is an exceptionally stimulating collection and a fine tribute to Gordon Baker, whose work on Wittgenstein leads us to see new aspects and to appreciate new possibilities. The rich variety of approaches to Wittgenstein represented in this collection will enable readers to engage more deeply with Wittgenstein’s thought, even as they become aware of the wide range of alternative ways in which his thought can be understood."
Cora Diamond, University of Virginia

"Gordon Baker was the most innovative and simply the most important reader of later Wittgenstein of his time. Thus he richly deserves a festschrift, and this volume is full of riches. It is encouraging to see a number of the papers engaging closely with Baker's own work. Particularly welcome is Katherine Morris's highly-Bakerian essay on Wittgenstein's method."
Rupert Read, University of East Anglia

Product Description
Comprising specially commissioned essays from some of the most significant contributors to the field, this volume provides a uniquely authoritative and thorough survey of the main lines of Wittgenstein scholarship over the past 50 years, tracing the history and current trends as well as anticipating the future shape of work on Wittgenstein.

Reflecting a range of different perspectives, some contributions offer an historical overview, mapping different schools and approaches to Wittgenstein interpretation. Others consider questions of methodology and style, or examine and shed new light on seminal controversies. Taken together, the essays provide a much needed overview of the complex landscape of both Wittgenstein exegesis and Wittgensteinian approaches to philosophy and will serve as an essential resource and guide for both students and scholars.


Wittgenstein's Apprenticeship with Russell

Wittgenstein's Apprenticeship with Russell
by Gregory Landini

# Hardcover: 312 pages
# Publisher: Cambridge University Press (August 13, 2007)

Wittgenstein's Tractatus has generated many interpretations since its publication in 1921, but over the years a consensus has developed concerning its criticisms of Russell's philosophy. In Wittgenstein's Apprenticeship with Russell, Gregory Landini draws extensively from his work on Russell's unpublished manuscripts to show that the consensus characterizes Russell with positions he did not hold. Using a careful analysis of Wittgenstein's writings he traces the Doctrine of Showing and the 'fundamental idea' of the Tractatus to Russell's logical atomist research program which dissolves philosophical problems by employing variables with structure. He argues that Russell and his apprentice Wittgenstein were allies in a research program that makes logical analysis and reconstruction the essence of philosophy. His sharp and controversial study will be essential reading for all who are interested in this rich period in the history of analytic philosophy

A Confusion of the Spheres: Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein on Philosophy and Religion

A Confusion of the Spheres: Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein on Philosophy and Religion
by Genia Schonbaumsfeld

# Hardcover: 216 pages
# Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA (November 17, 2007)

Cursory allusions to the relation between Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein are common in the philosophical literature, but there has been little in the way of serious and comprehensive commentary on the relationship of their ideas. Genia Schonbaumsfeld closes this gap and offers new readings of
Kierkegaard's and Wittgenstein's conceptions of philosophy and religious belief.

Chapter one documents Kierkegaard's influence on Wittgenstein, while chapters two and three provide trenchant criticisms of two prominent attempts to compare the two thinkers, those by D. Z. Phillips and James Conant. In chapter four, Schonbaumsfeld develops Kierkegaard's and Wittgenstein's
concerted criticisms of the "spaceship view" of religion and defends it against the common charges of "fideism" and "irrationalism".

As well as contributing to contemporary debate about how to read Kierkegaard's and Wittgenstein's work, A Confusion of the Spheres addresses issues which not only concern scholars of Wittgenstein and Kierkegaard, but anyone interested in the philosophy of religion, or the ethical aspects of
philosophical practice as such.

# Hardcover: 528 pages
# Publisher: Routledge; 1 edition (January 2003)

an absolutely fascinating collection of essays.What makes these writings important is that they all originate from the early 1930s. Hence, they may cast greater light on the nature, extent and cause of the change of mind, such that there was, that led Wittgenstein fro his 'early' to his 'later' thinking. Yet decisive or not, this material will surely add richness to the debate.' Daniel Hutto, British Journal for the History of Philosophy

Product Description
This brings together for the first time over one hundred short essays in philosophical logic and the philosophy of mind. It is an invaluable introduction to Wittgenstein's later philosophy.

by R. Arrington

# Hardcover: 308 pages
# Publisher: Routledge; 1 edition (September 9, 1996)

"This volume...certainly helps by furthering our understanding of the work of both these important philosphers."

Book Description
This unique study brings together for the first time two of the most important philosophers of the twentieh century. Are the views of Wittgenstein and Quine on method and philosophy compatible or radically opposed? Does Wittgenstein's conception of language engender that of Quine, or threaten its philosophical foundations? An understanding of the similarities and differences between the thought of Wittgenstein and Quine is essential if we are to have a full picture of the landscape of recent and contemporary philosophy. This collection of essays offers various and original ways in which to view their relationship.

The False Prison:
A Study of the Development of Wittgenstein's Philosophy Volume 1 & 2
by David Pears

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA (December 29, 1988)

'magisterial study ... Pears is of course an exceptionally well-qualified guide to theTractatus' Time Literary Supplement

'He has an unerring sense for what is central in Wittgenstein's investigations and an enviable gift for reconstructing Wittgenstein's thought by projecting himself into a problem as it presented itself to Wittgenstein, but without sacrificing his independence. The depth and density of his interpretation contrast sharply with most other efforts. His book is elegantly and imaginatively written, with an unrivalled sympathy for and rare mastery of its subject.' Malcolm Budd, TLS

'lucid and careful treatment' Times Higher Education Supplement

'This book provides a detailed and perceptive account of both the continuities and discontinuities in the development of Wittgenstein's later treatment of the ego, sensation and rule-following.' David Stern, University of Iowa, Canadian Philosophical Reviews

'The clarity of the exposition and the detail with which the arguments are untangled makes this an excellent book for student use.' Rom Harre, International Studies in Philosophy

Product Description
This is the second volume of David Pears's acclaimed study of Wittgenstein's philosophy from the Notebooks and the Tractatus to Philosophical Investigations and other later writings. Dealing with writings from 1929 onward, Volume II provides close discussions of those doctrines and ideas that
reveal the general overall structure of Wittgenstein's thought. Designed to fill the gap in the secondary literature between brief introductions and long commentaries, The False Prison relates the general to the particular within a clearly delineated framework, making Wittgenstein's difficult
thought more accessible to philosophy students and nonspecialists.

Agamben - The Open: Man and Animal

The Open: Man and Animal
by Giorgio Agamben
Kevin Attell (Translator)

# Hardcover: 120 pages
# Publisher: Stanford University Press; 1 edition (October 29, 2003)

The end of human history is an event that has been foreseen or announced by both messianics and dialecticians. But who is the protagonist of that history that is coming—or has come—to a close? What is man? How did he come on the scene? And how has he maintained his privileged place as the master of, or first among, the animals?

In The Open, contemporary Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben considers the ways in which the “human” has been thought of as either a distinct and superior type of animal, or a kind of being that is essentially different from animal altogether. In an argument that ranges from ancient Greek, Christian, and Jewish texts to twentieth-century thinkers such as Heidegger, Benjamin, and Kojève, Agamben examines the ways in which the distinction between man and animal has been manufactured by the logical presuppositions of Western thought, and he investigates the profound implications that the man/animal distinction has had for disciplines as seemingly disparate as philosophy, law, anthropology, medicine, and politics.

# Paperback: 264 pages
# Publisher: Stanford University Press; 1 edition (March 1, 1994)

Over the past decade, radical questioning of the grounds of Western epistemology has revealed that some antinomies of the aesthetic experience can be viewed as a general, yet necessarily open, model for human understanding. This book is a rigorous explication de texte of a central text for this thesis, Kant’s Analytic of the Sublime.


Leibniz and the Natural World: Activity, Passivity and Corporeal Substances in Leibniz's Philosophy

Leibniz and the Natural World: Activity, Passivity and Corporeal Substances in Leibniz's Philosophy
(The New Synthese Historical Library)
by Pauline Phemister

# Hardcover: 293 pages
# Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (August 11, 2005)

"[Leibniz and the Natural World] lives up admirably to its ambitious aims. [...] in arguing for her main thesis, Phemister also provides an original and fascinating approach to two formidable challenges in Leibniz's scholarship. [...] There is much more to be found in this rich book, which any serious student of Leibniz's metaphysics should study."

Ohad Nachtomy, Bar-Ilan University, Israel, in British Journal for the History of Philosophy 16:1, 2008

Product Description
In the present book, Pauline Phemister argues against traditional Anglo-American interpretations of Leibniz as an idealist who conceives ultimate reality as a plurality of mind-like immaterial beings and for whom physical bodies are ultimately unreal and our perceptions of them illusory. Re-reading the texts without the prior assumption of idealism allows the more material aspects of Leibniz's metaphysics to emerge. Leibniz is found to advance a synthesis of idealism and materialism. His ontology posits indivisible, living, animal-like corporeal substances as the real metaphysical constituents of the universe; his epistemology combines sense-experience and reason; and his ethics fuses confused perceptions and insensible appetites with distinct perceptions and rational choice. In the light of his sustained commitment to the reality of bodies, Phemister re-examines his dynamics, the doctrine of pre-established harmony and his views on freedom. The image of Leibniz as a rationalist philosopher who values activity and reason over passivity and sense-experience is replaced by the one of a philosopher who recognises that, in the created world, there can only be activity if there is also passivity; minds, souls and forms if there is also matter; good if there is evil; perfection if there is imperfection.


Self and Substance in Leibniz

Self and Substance in Leibniz
by Marc Elliott Bobro
# Hardcover: 144 pages
# Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (July 20, 2004)

We are omniscient but confused, says Leibniz. He also says that we live in the best of all possible worlds, yet do not causally interact. So what are we? Leibniz is known for many things, including the ideality of space and time, calculus, plans for a universal language, theodicy, and ecumenism. But he is not known for his ideas on the self and personal identity. This book shows that Leibniz offers an original, internally coherent theory of personal identity, a theory that stands on its own even next to Locke's contemporaneous and more famous version. This book will appeal not only to students of Leibniz's thought but also to philosophers and psychologists interested in methodological problems in understanding or formulating theories of self and personal identity.

by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka (Editor)

# Hardcover: 322 pages
# Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (December 20, 2007)

Paradoxically, our human virtues that maintain our societal fabric, emerge from passional grounds/sources in individual existence. It is the Human Condition that prompts our creative strivings beyond the natural round of life toward outstanding achievements.

Our full possibilities allow our singular existence: excellence of individual character, courage, engagement, and wisdom to unfold.

The transformations that the virtues work with a timing of human progress, never entirely accomplished, lift us toward personal fulfillment.

# Hardcover: 300 pages
# Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (January 13, 2006)

Identifying quickly illusion with deception, we tend to oppose it to the reality of life. However, investigating in this collection of essays illusion's functions in the Arts, which thrives upon illusion and yet maintains its existential roots and meaningfullness in the real, we might wonder about the nature of reality itself.

Does not illusion open the seeming confines of factual reality into horizons of imagination which transform it? Does it not, like art, belong essentially to the makeup of human reality?

Phenomenology of Life (Analecta Husserliana)

Phenomenology of Life
(Analecta Husserliana)
by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka (Editor)

Book I. In Search of Experience
Transcendental phenomenology presumed to have overcome the classic mind-body dichotomy in terms of consciousness, yet, according to progress in scientific studies, the biological functions of the brain seem to appropriate significant functions attributed traditionally to consciousness. Should we indeed dissolve the specificity of human consciousness by explaining human experience in its multiple sense-giving modalities through the physiological functions of the brain? The present collection of studies addresses this crucial question challenging such "naturalizing" reductionism from multiple angles. In search for the roots of "The Specifically Human Experience" (Bombala), moving along the line of "Animality and Intellection"(Gosetti-Ferencei), "Naturalistic Attitude and Personalistic Attitude"(Villela-Petit), and numerous other perspectives, we arrive at a novel proposal to explain the scholar functional differentiation of conscious modalities. We reach their source in the ontopoietic thread conducting the Logos of Life in its stepwise "Evolutive Unfolding"(Carmen Cozma), and in "sentience" as its quintessential core of further irreducible continuity (Tymieniecka) dispelling dichotomies and reductionisms.

Logos of Phenomenology and Phenomenology of the Logos (Analecta Husserliana)

from Analecta Husserliana
Logos of Phenomenology and Phenomenology of the Logos

During its century-long unfolding, spreading in numerous directions, Husserlian phenomenology while loosening inner articulations, has nevertheless maintained a somewhat consistent profile. As we see in this collection, the numerous conceptions and theories advanced in the various phases of reinterpretations have remained identifiable with phenomenology.

What conveys this consistency in virtue of which innumerable types of inquiry-scientific, social, artistic, literary  may consider themselves phenomenological?

Is it not the quintessence of the phenomenological quest, namely our seeking to reach the very foundations of reality at all its constitutive levels by pursuing its logos? Inquiring into the logos of the phenomenological quest we discover, indeed, all the main constitutive spheres of reality and of the human subject involved in it, and concurrently, the logos itself comes to light in the radiation of its force (Tymieniecka).

Crisis and Reflection: An Essay on Husserl's Crisis of the European Sciences

Crisis and Reflection: An Essay on Husserl's Crisis of the European Sciences (Phaenomenologica)
by J. Dodd

# Hardcover: 247 pages
# Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (July 20, 2004)

In his last work, "Crisis of the European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology", Edmund Husserl formulated a radical new approach to phenomenological philosophy. Unlike his previous works, in the "Crisis" Husserl embedded this formulation in an ambitious reflection on the essence and value of the idea of rational thought and culture, a reflection that he considered to be an urgent necessity in light of the political, social, and intellectual crisis of the interwar period. In this book, James Dodd pursues an interpretation of Husserl's text that emphasizes the importance of the problem of the origin of philosophy, as well as advances the thesis that, for Husserl, the "crisis of reason" is not a contingent historical event, but a permanent feature of a life in reason generally.


Derrida and Husserl: The Basic Problem of Phenomenology

Derrida and Husserl: The Basic Problem of Phenomenology
by Leonard Lawlor

# Paperback: 280 pages
# Publisher: Indiana University Press (June 1, 2002)

Book Description
Leonard Lawlor investigates Derrida's writings on Husserl in order to determine Derrida's transformation of the basic problem of phenomenology from genesis to language. To do so, he lays out a narrative of the period during which Derrida devoted himslef to formulating and interpretation of Husserl, from approximately 1954 to 1967. On the basis of the narrative, certain well known Derridean concepts are determined (in relation primarily to Husserl's phenomenology): deconstruction, the metaphysics of presence, diffŽrance (and Derrida's initial concept of dialectic), the trace, and spectrality.

About the Author
Leonard Lawlor is Dunavant Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of Memphis. He is author of Imagination and Chance: The Difference between the Thought of Ricoeur and Derrida and co-editor (with Fred Evans) of Chiasms: Merleau-Ponty's Notion of the Flesh. He is a founding editor of the journal Chiasmi International: Trilingual Studies Concerning the Thought of Merleau-Ponty.
