Perspectives contemporaines sur l’agentivité et le sujet
Volume Editor:
Phénoménologie de l'action présente d’une manière très originale certains des différents aspects débattus aujourd’hui dans la philosophie de l’action. Grâce au renouvellement au sein de la philosophie de l’esprit concernant la connaissance en première personne, l’analyse de la relation entre le sujet et ses actions a connu un net regain d’intérêt ces dernières années. En mobilisant à la fois la tradition anglo-américaine et la tradition européenne, l’ouvrage se focalise davantage sur la question du moi et sur celle de l’agentivité (agency). La possibilité d’un dialogue entre ces deux traditions concernant la théorie de l’action en phénoménologie constitue l’originalité du volume.

Phénoménologie de l’action presents in a very innovative way some of the different aspects debated today in the philosophy of action. Thanks to the renewal within the philosophy of mind concerning first-person knowledge, the analysis of the relation between the self and its actions has undergone a revival in recent years. Drawing from both the Anglo-American and the European tradition, this book focuses mainly on the relation between self and agency. The possibility of a dialogue between these two traditions concerning the theory of action from a phenomenological standpoint constitutes the originality of this volume.
Zur poetischen Argumentation in Nietzsches Also sprach Zarathustra
Die Studie präsentiert eine neue Lektüre von Nietzsches philosophischem Hauptwerk „Also sprach Zarathustra“. Der Text hat seit seinem ersten Erscheinen (1883–1885) extreme und stark divergierende Reaktionen hervorgerufen: Galt Nietzsche um 1900 als ‚Dichter-Philosoph‘, so bot zugleich die anti-demokratische und elitistische Haltung Anlass für vehemente politische Kritik. Die französische Philosophie der 1960er und -70er Jahre fand in Nietzsche hingegen den Kritiker und Freigeist par excellence. Den Sprachwitz von Nietzsches Text sowie dessen ironischen und parodistischen Charakter betonten poststrukturalistische Lesarten der 1980er und -90er Jahre. Vor dem Hintergrund einer bis heute fortwirkenden Spannung zwischen dekonstruktiven und hermeneutischen Zugriffen auf den Text unternimmt die Studie eine neue und konsequente Rekonstruktion der eigenwilligen Poetik von „Also sprach Zarathustra“.

Die Reihe ist mit Band 3 abgeschlossen.

Die Benjamin-Studien sind ein internationales Forum für die Auseinandersetzung mit den Schriften und dem Denken Walter Benjamins. Sie erscheinen in einem ein- bis zweijährigen Rhythmus.

Das Potential von Benjamins Denk- und Arbeitsweise ist längst nicht erschöpft, die Komplexität seiner Schriften in vielen Teilen und Aspekten längst nicht erschlossen. Trotz der Fülle vorhandener Untersuchungen und Adaptionen hat sich - angesichts der Entwicklung von Künsten, Medien und Technik und angesichts aktueller Ereignisse im Feld von Religion und Politik - der Wirkungsradius von Benjamin jüngst in internationaler und interdisziplinärer Perspektive ausgeweitet.

Prolegomena to Ecological Thinking in Heidegger
Author:
Nature as Limit provides an account of Nature in terms of the collapse of the subject-object binary, presenting Heidegger’s work as a series of prolegomena toward a prospective ecological thought. This begins with a critical re-evaluation of the homology Heidegger discovers between the essence of technology and the trajectory of Western metaphysics, with special attention paid to his return to Aristotle’s Physics in 1939. Reimagining technics and our understanding of Nature as ‘technical image’, the book examines Nature as the occurrence of (de)limitation. An uncapturable immanence in the field of total phenomena, Nature is the incompletedness of any naturalism, an understanding that raises strange and compelling questions about space, time, and history. Nature as Limit confronts Heidegger’s use of language on its own terms, exploring the full breadth of its intention and offering a demystification of that language, a reappraisal that offers a new lexicon for future readers.
This book is a masterpiece of critical theory. It provides an illuminating and original meta-theoretical account of Marx’s general views of critical economic theory. Sympathetic to the general aims of Marx, it also excavates the internal contradictions of the Marxian theory with unparalleled care. Written in Hungarian in the early 1970s, it was censored by the communist authorities immediately after its completion. Its belated publication in English signifies a major boon for research scholars in a range of disciplines, including philosophy, political economy, Marxism, intellectual history, and Eastern European studies.
