La barbarie by Michel Henry( Book )

60 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbarism represents acritique, from the perspective of Michel Henry's unique philosophy of life, of the increasing potential of science and technology to destroy the roots of culture and the value of the individual human being. For Henry, barbarism is the result of a devaluation of human life and culture that can be traced back to the spread of quantification, the scientific method and technology over all aspects of modern life. The book develops a compelling critique of capitalism, technology and education and provides a powerful insight into the political implications of Henry's work. It also opens up a new dialogue with other influential cultural critics, such as Marx, Husserl, and Heidegger. First published in French in 1987, Barbarism aroused great interest as well as virulent criticism. Today the book reveals what for Henry is a cruel reality: the tragic feeling of powerlessness experienced by the cultured person. Above all he argues for the importance of returning to philosophy in order to analyse the root causes of barbarism in our world
I am the truth : toward a philosophy of Christianity by Michel Henry( Book )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le christianisme bouleverse notre conception de l'homme parce qu'il refuse la manière dont celui-ci se comprend depuis toujours : à partir du moment, de sa vérité, et de ses lois. Selon le christianisme, l'homme ne procède pas du monde, mais de Dieu. Cet ouvrage met à nu le genre de Vérité que le christianisme propose aux hommes, à partir d'une phénoménologie radicale du concept de Vie
Seeing the invisible : on Kandinsky by Michel Henry( Book )

38 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michel Henry was one of the leading French philosophers of the twentieth century. His numerous works of philosophy are all organized around the theme of life. In contrast to the scientific understanding of life as a biological process, Henry's philosophy develops a conception of life as an immediate feeling of one's own living. Seeing the Invisible marks Henry's most sustained engagement in the field of aesthetics. Through an analysis of the life and works of Wassily Kandinsky, Henry uncovers the philosophical significance of Kandinsky's revolution in painting: that abstract art reveals the in
Material phenomenology by Michel Henry( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En reposant la question fondamentale de la phénoménologie, et de la philosophie - la question de la donation -, en interprétant celle-ci non plus seulement, selon la pensée traditionnelle de l'Occident, comme apparition dans un monde mais comme l'étreinte invisible de la vie en son propre pathos, la phénoménologie matérielle soulève des problèmes nouveaux et paradoxaux. Trois d'entre eux font l'objet des présentes études : 1 / La matière de la conscience, l'Impression, n'est plus un contenu opaque attendant l'éclaircissement de la forme intentionnelle, ne s'exhibant que dans l'Ek-stase du Temps : elle accomplit la Révélation en elle-même, dans sa chair affective. Au lieu de définir une discipline mineure, vite oubliée, la phénoménologie hylétique - matérielle - dessine la tâche de l'avenir. 2 / La possibilité de connaître la vie invisible donne son sens au problème de la méthode phénoménologique et exige que celle-ci soit repensée entièrement. 3 / La relation à autrui change elle-même de nature si, avant de pouvoir être reconnue au milieu du monde, elle prend corps dans la vie où naissent tous les vivants, l'autre aussi bien que moi-même - si elle est un "pathos-avec". - Michel Henry

The genealogy of psychoanalysis by Michel Henry( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The certainty of the Cogito is more an "I feel" (an auto-affection), which on principle eludes the ek-stasis of representation in its modern sense. In such representation, subjectivity is always posed outside the self, whereas affectivity is felt in itself, immanently, without the mediation of any representation. In this sense, affectivity remains profoundly inaccessible to representation - not because it could only ever manifest itself as a representation, but because it manifests itself otherwise, in a manner anterior to the shown/hidden opposition that characterizes representational ek-stasis. The book traces this heritage from Descartes through Malebranche, Leibniz, Kant, and Schopenhauer to Freud. It also discusses Nietzsche, who the author argues stands outside this genealogy
From communism to capitalism : theory of a catastrophe by Michel Henry( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in French and English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Both a unique witness of transformative events in the late 20th century, and a prescient analysis of our present economic crises from a major French philosopher, Michel Henry's From Communism to Capitalism adds an important economic dimension to his earlier social critique. It begins by tracing the collapse of communist regimes back to their failure to implement Marx's original insights into the irreplaceable value of the living individual. Henry goes on to apply this same criticism to the surviving capitalist economic systems, portending their eventual and inevitable collapse. The influence of Michel Henry's radical revision of phenomenological thought is only now beginning to be felt in full force, and this edition is the first English translation of his major engagement with socio-economic questions. From Communism to Capitalism reinterprets politics and economics in light of the failure of socialism and the pervasiveness of global capitalism, and Henry subjects both to critique on the basis of his own philosophy of life. His notion of the individual is one that, as subjective affect, subtends both Marxist collectivism and liberalism simultaneously. In addition to providing a crucial economic elaboration of Henry's influential social critiques, this work provides a context for understanding the 2008 financial shock and offers important insights into the political motivations behind the 'Arab spring'"
Words of Christ by Michel Henry( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Words of Christ (Paroles du Christ) -- here translated into English for the first time -- Michel Henry asks how Christ can be both human and divine. He considers, further, how we as humans can experience Christ's humanity and divinity through his words. Are we able to recognize this speech as divine, and if so, then how? What can testify to the divine nature of these words? What makes them intelligible? Startling possibilities -- and further questions -- emerge as Henry systematically explores these enigmas. For example, how does the phenomenology of life bring to light the God of which scripture speaks? Might this new region of phenomenality broaden or transform the discipline of phenomenology itself, or theology? Henry approaches these questions starting from the angle of material phenomenology, but his study has far-reaching implications for other disciplines too. Intended for a wide audience, his work is a uniquely philosophical approach to the question of Christ and to the place of this question in human experience. This highly original, interdisciplinary perspective on Christ's words was Henry's last work, published shortly after his death in 2002"--Publisher's description

Généalogie de la psychanalyse : le commencement perdu by Michel Henry( Book )

21 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in French and English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le concept d'inconscient a fait son apparition dans la culture moderne en même temps que celui de conscience et comme son exacte conséquence : dès que l'essence originelle de la phénoménalité, révélée et occultée à la fois par Descartes dans le cogito , a été réduite à la représentation. Pour autant que Freud emprunte explicitement son concept de conscience à cette tradition philosophique, l'affirmation que le Fond de la Psyché échappe à la phénoménalité ainsi entendue revêt une portée immense : elle pose, après Schopenhauer et Nietzsche, que la vie ne s'exhibe jamais dans l'Ek-stase où la pensée, depuis la Grèce, la cherche. Et si, faute de moyens appropriés, le freudisme fut contraint de rejeter dans un arrière-monde les formes élémentaires de l'expérience, si l'affect fut ramené à la pulsion, et la pulsion à un système énergétique conforme aux schémas scientifiques de l'époque, il reste possible de reconnaître, derrière ces constructions spéculatives, à travers ces emboîtements d'hypothèses à l'infini, la figure même de cette vie - la nôtre.
