Depression and philosophy : from mal du siecle to malady of the century by Robert Redeker( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work is, in the words of Dr Norman Freed, a "rich picture of an empty landscape, the depression that is to be engaged to maximally avoid it and its ramifications." This work explores the philosophical aspects of the plague of depression found throughout the modern world." "Depression, once called melancholy (as in The Anatomy of Melancholy of Robert Burton, of 1621, or closer to us, that "Black Sun of Melancholy" of the suicide Nerval...), according to Robert Redeker - philosopher, teacher, author of half-a-dozen books and many articles and reviews, member of the 'comite' of Les Temps Modernes, and recently become a nomadic intellectual, or "scholar-gypsy," subsequent to Jihadist 'fatwas' that were leveled against him after an article he published in the Figaro calling on a 'terrorist' Islam to establish its humanist credentials, if there were any to establish - has lost its aristocratic, aesthetic and elitist luster, which it once had in the epoch of Musset's Confessions, Vigny's Chatterton, Chateaubriand's Reni, Nerval's El Deschidado, and, of course, Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal. Redeker shrewdly, even uncannily, locates a prophetically watershed moment in Flaubert's contemporaneous Emma Bovary, the first of the "desperate housewives", unprecedented in the fact that her melancholy had nothing to do with its typical etiology of an artist's alienation from a bourgeois world (say from Vigny's Chatterton to Artaud's "Van Gogh, Suicided by Society") but rather stemmed from the pressures and frustrations of living in society, as from Civilization and Its Discontents we all suffer from, artists or not (maybe nonartists even more, since they can't make art out of it), as Freud later was to conceptualize the issue..." "As a matter of fact in a previous book (Les Nouvelles figures de l'homme, 2004, Le Bord de l'eau; Eng. trans.: The New Face of Humanity, 2007, Academica Press) Redeker had explored the etiology of such common conditions of today as stress and nervousness (divorced from any reasonable cause, or, visibly, any cause at all, as in anxiety as opposed to fear), connecting them with a general ambiance of dysphoria or asthenia fostered by a cultural and political climate of derogation and meaninglessness - for instance one that made mere biological survival (shades of Agamben!), lamentably the only purpose left: life only for the sake of living; we like the slaves, famously of Hegel's "master-slave dialectic" who have chosen living on over living with dignity, if at risk of death; this providing: "...a soil fertile for nervousness....Everywhere we meet men and women on hot coals, as if being shocked by wires and batteries....The nervous person of today is...representative of dehumanization"" "Equally if not more widespread and spreading than the 'manic' nervousness and stress limned above, melancholy or depression today, as conceived in Redeker's book, Depression and Philosophy, may be the other side of this sad psychological seesaw of a syndrome (as in 'manic-depressive'), with its roots in the same soil, if the flagrant oxymoron may be allowed of a soil for rootlessness; depression rising from our being 'starved' of any meaningful tie, connection, bond to ourselves, a world or a cosmos, "A malady attacking these ties renders human life impossible. The ties which allow habitation are like ropes and cables in mountain climbing and at sea: when they're unloosened, we are loosened from ourselves, from others, and we're done for. A feeling of falling is frequent in the collapse which is depression."" "Our pandemic depression is also conceived of here as having been accompanied and even facilitated by a corresponding derogation of philosophy from its traditional 'task' of providing a stable basis and essence for human existence. However, as with Love the one who inflicted the wound may be in the best position to heal it; or, in the words of the mad, but strangely sane Hvlderlin: "there where the danger is greatest, rescue is nearest.""--BOOK JACKET

L'emprise sportive by Robert Redeker( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Envahissant, saturant l'espace et le temps, le sport est vécu aujourd'hui comme une activité allant de soi. Il n'est jamais questionné, échappant à toute critique approfondie. Le sport est pourtant, en quelque sorte, le moule dans lequel notre société est formée. Il est le nouveau pouvoir spirituel. Il façonne les âmes autant que les corps. Il promeut un corps fabriqué de type inédit, quand l'âme du sportif lui a été enlevée pour être remplacée par le mental. Robert Redeker se livre à une attaque sans concession du sport contemporain. Il en dénonce les mutations, les travers et surtout les fonctions nouvelles: transformation des organismes humains, culte de la performance infinie, ersatz de religion, substitut de relations internationales. Les sportifs sont-ils des mutants? Le sport est-il l'usine où se fabrique un nouveau type d'être humain?

Il faut tenter de vivre by Robert Redeker( Book )

"Le 19 septembre 2006, Robert Redeker, professeur de philosophie, publie dans Le Figaro une tribune intitulée : " Face aux intimidations islamistes, que doit faire le monde libre? ". Le lendemain, sa vie bascule. Accusé d'avoir " offensé le Prophète ", il reçoit par e-mail des menaces d'une extrême violence. Plus grave, il est frappé d'une condamnation à mort sur un site islamiste crypté, authentifié par la DST. Sa photo, son numéro de portable, son adresse, celle du lycée où il enseigne, des plans détaillés pour s'y rendre, tout cela figure sur ce site, où l'on appelle à lui trancher la tête. Depuis, Robert Redeker et les siens vivent cachés, sous protection policière permanente. Parce que sa vie est en danger, Robert Redeker est réduit au silence. Afin de rompre cet enfermement, afin de dire aussi combien il est inacceptable qu'en République française, un homme soit condamné à mort et de facto censuré pour avoir usé de sa liberté d'expression et d'opinion, voici son témoignage. Un texte poignant, où l'on prend la mesure, précise, concrète, quotidienne, de ce qu'il a traversé et devra encore affronter. Parce qu'il refuse tout simplement de capituler
L'Europe, l'ère du vide by Robert Redeker( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La crise de l'Europe aussi bien institutionnelle qu'intellectuelle et spirituelle est une crise métaphysique. Elle tient dans l'oubli de l'origine métaphysique des fondements de la civilisation européenne. D'ailleurs, bien avant nous, Europe il y a déjà eu : au Moyen-Âge, sous la forme de la chrétienté, lorsque cette dernière a retrouvé le fondement grec, pouvant du même coup lier le Christ au Logos, ou bien au XVIIIe siècle sous la forme des Lumières, lorsque ce Logos reçut une nouvelle interprétation, dirigée vers l'émancipation. C'est le lien à la Grèce, et lui seul, qui rend possible l'Europe. En ce sens, le conflit entre la Grèce et les institutions européennes est bien plus que conjoncturel. Il se pare d'une signification historique: cette Europe là, cette Europe issue des derniers traités internationaux, souvent adoptés en opposition à la volonté des peuples sommés de soumettre à eux, cette Europe qui fait fi de l'esprit, qui se construit contre les citoyens, contre leurs acquis sociaux et leur histoire, qui ne connaît d'autre dieu que l'économie, d'autre loi que la banque, s'est rendue orpheline de tout avenir en étant une trahison de ce que l'Europe a toujours été. La Grèce est le double révélateur de cet échec: philosophique et historique. C'est que, d'une certaine façon, Europe et Grèce sont des noms interchangeables."--Page 4 of cover

Entre 1938, date de l'édiction par le fascisme italien des "Lois sur la race", et 1945, date de l'ouverture des camps de concentration, la situation des Juifs dans les Alpes se dégrada à plusieurs reprises. Ceux qui se réfugièrent dans la partie française du massif virent ainsi le refuge se muer en piège, même dans les endroits les plus reculés
