The future of religion by Richard Rorty( )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and Danish and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Though coming from different and distinct intellectual traditions, Richard Rorty and Gianni Vattimo are united in their criticism of the metaphysical tradition. The challenges they put forward extend beyond philosophy and entail a reconsideration of the foundations of belief in God and the religious life. They urge that the rejection of metaphysical truth does not necessitate the death of religion; instead it opens new ways of imagining what it is to be religious - ways that emphasize charity, solidarity, and irony. This unique collaboration, which includes a dialogue between the two philosophers, is notable not only for its fusion of pragmatism (Rorty) and hermeneutics (Vattimo) but also for its recognition of the limits of both traditional religious belief and modern secularism."--Jacket
Weakening philosophy essays in honour of Gianni Vattimo ( )
12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gianni Vattimo is one of the world's most important philosophers, yet he has received scant attention in the English-speaking world. The essays in Weakening Philosophy, from leading figures such as Umberto Eco and Charles Taylor, introduce his ideas to a wider audience
The hermeneutic nature of analytic philosophy a study of Ernst Tugendhat by Santiago Zabala( )
16 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contemporary philosophers & mdash;analytic as well as continental & mdash;tend to feel uneasy about Ernst Tugendhat, who, though he positions himself in the analytic field, poses questions in the Heideggerian style. Tugendhat was one of Martin Heidegger's last pupils and his least obedient, pursuing a new and controversial critical technique. Tugendhat took Heidegger's destruction of Being as presence and developed it in analytic philosophy, more specifically in semantics. Only formal semantics, according to Tugendhat, could answer the questions left open by Heidegger. Yet in doing
Art's claim to truth by Gianni Vattimo( )
12 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First collected in Italy in 1985, Art's Claim to Truth is considered by many philosophers to be one of Gianni Vattimo's most important works. Newly revised for English readers, the book begins with a challenge to Plato, Aristotle, Kant, and Hegel, who viewed art as a metaphysical aspect of reality rather than a futuristic anticipation of it. Following Martin Heidegger's interpretation of the history of philosophy, Vattimo outlines the existential ontological conditions of aesthetics, paying particular attention to the works of Kandinsky, which reaffirm the ontological implications
Hermeneutic communism from Heidegger to Marx by Gianni Vattimo( )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Communism no longer represents an appealing alternative to capitalism, having lost much of its political clout and theoretical power. In its original Marxist formulation, communism promised an ideal of development, but only through a logic of war, and while a number of reformist governments still promote this ideology, their legitimacy has steadily declined since the fall of the Berlin wall. Separating communism from its metaphysical foundations, which include an abiding faith in the immutable laws of history and an almost holy conception of the proletariat, Gianni Vattimo and Sant
Nihilism & emancipation : ethics, politics, and law by Gianni Vattimo( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A marriage of philosophy and practical politics, this collection is the first of Gianni Vattimo's many books to combine his intellectual pursuits with his public and political life. Vattimo is a paradoxical figure, at once a believing Christian and a vociferous critic of the Catholic Church, an outspoken liberal but not a former communist, and a recognized authority on Nietzsche and Heidegger as well as a prominent public intellectual and member of the European parliament. Building on his unique position as a philosopher and politician. Vattimo takes on some of the most pressing questions of our times: Is it still possible, long after Nietzsche proclaimed the death of God, to talk of moral imperatives, individual rights, or political freedom? Are these values still relevant in today's world?"--Jacket
The remains of being : hermeneutic ontology after metaphysics by Santiago Zabala( Book )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Basic Concepts, Heidegger claims that ""Being is the most worn-out"" and yet also that Being ""remains constantly available."" Santiago Zabala radicalizes the consequences of these little known but significant affirmations. Revisiting the work of Jacques Derrida, Reiner Schürmann, Jean-Luc Nancy, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Ernst Tugendhat, and Gianni Vattimo, he finds these remains of Being within which ontological thought can still operate. Being is an event, Zabala argues, a kind of generosity and gift that generates astonishment in those who experience it. This sense of wo

Being shaken : ontology and the event ( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Despite the fact that over the last twenty years philosophies of the event have become more prevalent, their overall relation to the ontological paradigm remains largely unthought. This collection explores ways in which events destabilize this paradigm, producing powerful tremors that shake Being to its core. This book considers the personal, ethical, theological, aesthetic, and political dimensions of such disquietude, offering a multifaceted approach to the relation of ontology and the event
