Renaissance man by Agnes Heller( Book )

24 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considering such witnesses of the time as Shakespeare, Dante, Petrarch, Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Montaigne, More and Bacon, Agnes Heller looks at both the concept and the image of a Renaissance man. The concept was generalised and accepted by all; its characteristic features were man as a dynamic being, creating and re-creating himself throughout his life. The images of man, however, were very different, having been formed through the ideas and imagination of artists, politicians, philosophers, scientists and theologians and viewed from the different aspects of work, love, fate, death, frien

A theory of feelings by Agnes Heller( Book )

18 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Theory of Feelings examines the problem of human feelings, widely understood, from phenomenological, analytic, and historical perspectives. It begins with an analysis of drives and affects, and pursues the nature of "feeling" itself, in all of its variability, through a close study of the distinctive categories of emotions, emotional dispositions, orientive feelings, and the passions. As such, the starting point of the analysis entails an examination of the characteristics of human involvement, or our ways of being in the world. Building upon this assessment of the conditions of human involvement, the philosophical history and emotional economy characteristic of modern relationships is treated, and the nature of expression, social division, suffering, and responsibility is evaluated in light of the theory of feeling presented here."--Jacket
Everyday life by Agnes Heller( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, first published in 1984, examines the politics and philosophy of ordinary men and women, and their ordinary transactions. It analyses the interaction between the individual and the social, both for the roots of everyday behaviour and for the means to change the social fabric. Using an approach that combines Marx, Husserl, Heidegger and Aristotle, Agnes Heller defines categories such as 'group', 'crowd', 'community', and deals with characteristics of everyday life such as repetition, rules, norms, economics, habits, probability, imitation. She also analyses everyday knowledge, and co
A theory of modernity by Agnes Heller( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by one of the most influential figures in post-World-War-II social thought, A Theory of Modernity is a comprehensive analysis of the main dynamics of modernity." "Heller's unique exploration of the canonical works of Hegel, Marx, Weber, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Foucault, and Arendt, combined with the wisdom gained from her life experiences, allows the reader to grasp the essence of modernity. Some of her encounters are idiosyncratic, while others are shared with all who lived through the Holocaust or under totalitarian dictatorships." "This view of modernity is an essential read for academics, researchers, and students of twentieth-century philosophy."--Jacket
