Architecture and nihilism : on the philosophy of modern architecture by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cacciari studies the relation between philosophy and modern architecture and applies the thinking of avant-garde architects, artists, and writers to the social and political problems raised by technological society. He begins by defining the modern metropolis, using the terms and ideas of Georg Simmel and Max Weber, but revealing where their frameworks are limited. He then examines the work of Adolf Loos and other architects and designers in early twentieth-century Vienna, showing how their architecture and criticism expose the alienation and utopianism in notions of the organic city. Cacciari demonstrates how architecture intersects with the city and the state but also with the interior of the private dwelling and with its resistance to the external world. Bringing together philosophy, sociology, urbanism, labor history, economics, and aesthetics, he helps us comprehend via these disciplines a crucial period in the history of modernity."--Jacket
Posthumous people : Vienna at the turning point by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

30 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedrich Nietzsche imagined himself belonging to a society of visionaries, thinkers, architects, poets, musicians, and artists running ahead of the mainstream. They were condemned to be misunderstood or ignored in the present, but their work would become significant in the future. To them he addressed the aphorism from which Massimo Cacciari's book takes its name, saying "It is only after death that we will enter our life and come alive, oh, very much alive, we posthumous people!" Cacciari isolates Vienna as the European capital of posthumous people at a crucial turning point in Western thinking, as the nineteenth century ended. There he finds Ludwig Wittgenstein, together with Peter Altenberg, Robert Walser, Lou Andreas-Salome, Adolf Loos, Martin Buber, Egon Schiele, Karl Kraus, Gustav Klimt, and many others. Cacciari treats this extraordinarily rich concentration of activity as the hub upon which European culture wheeled into the twentieth century. He reaches directly to the intellectual content in each of the various figures he discusses
The necessary angel by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

50 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cacciari elabora una sua lettura filosofico-teologica dell'Angelo attraversando i testi e le immagini, a partire dall'antichità giudaico-cristiana o pagana o iranica sino a Klee o a Rilke o alla riflessione di Henry Corbin. E appare evidente come questa sua ricerca si connetta anche ai suoi lavori precedenti, e in particolare a Icone della Legge. Qui, sempre con riferimento a Benjamin e a Rosenzweig, torna a porsi il problema della rappresentazione e l'Angelo aiuta a configurarlo come un vero dramma gnoseologico che si svolge sulla soglia di quello che Corbin ha definito il mundus imaginalis. E intanto l'attenzione si fissa sulla fisiognomica degli <<ultimi, grandi incontri>> con l'Angelo. Ora gli Angeli diventano simili a <<dèi dell'istante>>, <<lampeggiano e scompaiono>>. Ormai sottratti a ogni stabile gerarchia, sedotti e quasi irretiti dall'umano, questi ultimi Angeli serbano in sé un riso, una disperazione e una paradossale libertà che ci sono più che mai essenziali

Europe and empire : on the political forms of globalization by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The European Union and the single currency have given Europe more stability than it has known in the past thousand years, yet Europe seems to be in perpetual crisis about its global role. The many European empires are now reduced to a multiplicity of ethnicities, traditions, and civilizations. Europe will never be One, but to survive as a union it will have to become a federation of 'islands' both distinct and connected. Though drawing on philosophers of Europe's past, Cacciari calls not to resist Europe's sunset but to embrace it. Europe will have to open up to the possibility that in few generations new exiles and an unpredictable cultural hybridism will again change all we know about the European legacy. Though scarcely alive in today's politics, the political unity of Europe is still a necessity, however impossible it seems to achieve"--
Dell'inizio by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Come già dichiara il titolo, Cacciari intende volgere lo sguardo a quel "cominciamento" che è il problema del pensiero filosofico. A questa inattualità nel porre il problema di sempre della filosofia corrisponde una novità perentoria nella articolazione della forma, che abbraccia i tre modi della scrittura filosofica: il dialogo (l'ironia, la ricerca), il trattato (la sistematicità), il parergon (la frammentazione aforistica). Da questi tratti apparirà evidente una voluta arcaicità dell'architetura formale, che implica una vis polemica contro ogni discorso filosofico rassegnato all'inerzia. Qui, al contrario, si riconosce che il pensiero filosofico non può che riproporsi le domande del Parmenide platonico

Della cosa ultima by Massimo Cacciari( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in Italian and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quale cosa attinge, "in ultimo", l'anima dopo essersi aperta, attraverso l'angoscia, alla ricerca di sé? E' questo l'interrogativo che sottende l'articolarsi di questo saggio. Tre voci in dialogo fra loro e con i "Maggiori Loro", da Platone a Husserl, cercano di rispondere a tale domanda, ognuna seguendo il proprio "demone custode": la voce portatrice di un radicale scetticismo dell'Intelletto, la voce che incarna l'atto di fede in lotta contro se stesso e quella dell'Autore, che si rivolge agli amici attraverso due lunghe serie di lettere, riprendendo e sviluppando le idee della sua più importante opera teoretica, "Dell'inizio". L'attenzione di Cacciari torna a volgersi a quel cominciamento che è il "problema" filosofico fondamentale
