Event and Subjectivity presents a rich phenomenological analysis of the event in contemporary phenomenology by focussing on the work of Claude Romano and Jean-Luc Marion. Although the event is a major topic of contemporary philosophy, its centrality has not been acknowledged enough in the phenomenological movement. The book starts with the idea that the event cannot find a proper place in Husserl’s transcendental phenomenology and Heidegger’s existential phenomenology.
It proposes a phenomenological version of the event that transforms the definition of phenomenon, subjectivity and phenomenology itself in order to do justice to the phenomenality of the event.
At the same time, Event and Subjectivity is the first book on Claude Romano’s understanding of phenomenology in English. It also offers a fresh reading of the phenomenology of Jean-Luc Marion by highlighting the phenomenon of the event.

With figures such as Fichte, Schelling, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Feuerbach, Marx, Engels, and Nietzsche, the nineteenth century was a dynamic time of philosophical development. The period made lasting contributions to several fields of philosophy. Moreover, it paved the way for the development of the social sciences at the turn of the twentieth century. This volume is dedicated to exploring the rich tradition of nineteenth-century Continental philosophy in its different areas with the main purpose of highlighting the importance of this tradition in the development of the leading streams of thought of the twentieth and twenty-first century.
Daniel Bensaïd: From the Actuality of Revolution to the Melancholic Wager is the first systematic full-length study of Bensaïd’s renovation of Marxism. Bensaïd, a student leader during the May '68 revolt and founder of the Ligue communiste révolutionnaire, was an exemplar of a creative and open liberatory Marxism, leaving a vast oeuvre for a new generation of Marxists to explore. Much of Bensaïd’s writing remains untranslated into English, and Roso’s volume offers a comprehensive critical overview.
Nathaniel Barron offers the first book length account in English of Ernst Bloch’s contribution to a Marxist philosophy of language. It is ambitious both in situating Bloch’s ideas in the broader Marxist engagement with language as it currently exists, and in using Bloch’s utopian categories to challenge that engagement. In particular, Barron reads Voloshinov’s insights into language through Bloch’s categories, and argues that Bloch advances on Voloshinov by offering an understanding of the social materiality of language which is more useful for challenging fascist forms of utterance.

This exploration in the history of ideas examines the groundbreaking notion of the embodied mind in its analysis by the French philosopher and politician Maine de Biran (1766–1824) and in its afterlife: consciousness is generated through frequent interaction between the voluntary and the spiritual. The conscious, active self is constituted in its sovereign autonomy, as free and undivided, by an inner act of willful resistance, a physical effort towards its own body and the world. For the first time, a multidisciplinary group of senior and junior researchers from Japan, USA and Europe investigate origins and discursive cross-fertilization of this concept around 1800, an intermediary stage between 1870 and 1945, and its influence upon existentialism, phenomenology, and deconstructivism during the postwar-period and beyond, from 1943 to 2010.
Festschrift für Johann Kreuzer
Dass die Philosophie sich auf ihre Geschichte zu verstehen habe, ist ein Gemeinplatz. Wie aber diese Geschichte im Fragen und Deuten der Gegenwart zur Präsenz gebracht wird, ist ein philosophisches Problem ersten Rangs, dem sich Johann Kreuzer ebenso gewidmet hat wie der Frage, wie weit die Stränge unseres gegenwärtigen Denkens in die Vergangenheit zurückreichen. Wie kann Erinnerung als Vergegenwärtigung von Vergangenheit und Zukunft schöpferisch gedacht werden? Die hier versammelten Beiträge greifen diese Fragen aus unterschiedlichsten, interdisziplinären Perspektiven auf, um zu zeigen, welche Interferenzen, nicht hinreichend reflektierte oder auch verschüttete Voraussetzungen unsere Gegenwart prägen.
Mystical Theology and Platonism in the Time of Cusanus engages with the history of mystical theology and Neoplatonic philosophy through the lens of the 15th century philosopher and theologian, Nicholas of Cusa. The volume comprises nineteen essays that break down the barriers between medieval and Renaissance studies, reinterpreting Cusanus’ place in the history of thought by exploring the archive that informed his thinking, while also interrogating his works by exploring them from the standpoint of their later reception by modern philosophers and theologians. The volume also offers tribute to the career of Donald F. Duclow, a leading scholar in the field of Cusanus studies in particular and of the history of mystical theology and Neoplatonic philosophy more generally.

Hegels Philosophie eröffnet einen tiefen Blick auf das Phänomen von Religion – ein Blick, der dem Feuer der aufklärerischen Kritik standhält. Die Religion vergegenwärtigt den Lebenssinn in seiner Totalität. Darin ist sie Vollzug der sich in ihrer Wirklichkeit erfassenden Vernunft. Welche bleibende Relevanz hat dies? Die Beiträge des Bandes gehen dieser Frage nach.

Hegel's philosophy offers a deep insight into the phenomenon of religion—one that withstands the fire of Enlightenment criticism. Religion reveals the meaning of life in its totality. In that, religion is the fulfilment of reason grasping itself in its actuality. What lasting relevance does this have? The contributions in this volume explore this question.
