The principle of hope by Ernst Bloch( Book )

254 editions published between 1953 and 2011 in 12 languages and held by 1,800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il libro evoca ed esplora tutte le dimensioni dell'utopia nella coscienza individuale e nella storia collettiva, dai sogni infantili alle opere d'arte alle costruzioni della filosofia e della letteratura. Allievo di Simmel, amico di Lukacs, Benjamin e Adorno, considerato tra i massimi pensatori del secolo, Bloch organizzò in questo testo imponente una sintesi di vasto respiro, in cui messianesimo ebraico, rinascita kiekegaardiana, esperienza delle avanguardie artistiche e marxismo critico si confrontano in una prospettiva che oggi, dopo la caduta delle ideologie, rivolge al futuro una sfida attualissima

Traces by Ernst Bloch( Book )

150 editions published between 1930 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written between 1910 and 1929, Traces is considered Ernst Bloch's most important work next to The Principle of Hope and The Spirit of Utopia. This book, which collects aphorisms, essays, stories, and anecdotes, enacts Bloch's interest in showing how attention to "traces"--To the marks people make or to natural marks--can serve as a mode of philosophizing. In an elegant example of how the literary can become a privileged medium for philosophy, Bloch's chief philosophical invention is to begin with what gives an observer pause--what seems strange and astonishing. He then follows such traces into an awareness of the individual's relations to himself or herself and to history, conceived as a thinking into the unknown, the "not yet," and thus as utopian in essence. Traces, a masterwork of twentieth-century philosophy, is the most modest and beautiful proof of Bloch's utopian hermeneutics, taking as its source and its result the simplest, most familiar, and yet most striking stories and anecdotes."--Publisher's website

Aesthetics and politics by Theodor W Adorno( Book )

34 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No other country and no other period has produced a tradition of major aesthetic debate to compare with that which unfolded in German culture from the 1930s to the 1950s. In Aesthetics and Politics the key texts of the great Marxist controversies over literature and art during these years are assembled in a single volume. They do not form a disparate collection but a continuous, interlinked debate between thinkers who have become giants of twentieth-century intellectual history
The utopian function of art and literature : selected essays by Ernst Bloch( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 1996 in English and German and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aesthetic essays of the philosopher Ernst Bloch (1885-1977) belong to the rich tradition of cultural criticism represented by Georg Lukacs, Theodor Adorno, and Walter Benjamin. Bloch was a significant creative source for these thinkers, and his impact is nowhere more evident than in writings on art. Bloch was fascinated with art as a reflection of both social realities and human dreams. Whether he is discussing architecture or detective novels, the theme that drives his work is always the same -- the striving for "something better," for a "homeland" that is more socially aware, more humane, more just. The book opens with an illuminating discussion between Bloch and Adorno on the meaning of utopia; then follow 12 essays written between 1930 and 1973 on topics as diverse as aesthetic theory, genres such as music, painting, theater, film, opera, poetry, and the novel, and perhaps most important, popular culture in the form of fairy tales, detective stories, and dime novels. -- Back cover
