Derrida : a critical reader by Jacques Derrida( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques Derrida's prolific output has been the delight (and sometimes the despair) of philosophers and literary theorists for over twenty years. His influence on the way we read theoretical texts continues to be profound. No serious contemporary thinker can fail to respond to 'deconstruction', even if many fail to come to terms with it, and there have been a number of monographs devoted to his work, not least by the contributors to this volume. Each author combines an intimate knowledge of Derrida's texts with an 'independent' philosophical stance. Each was asked -- in the most positive sense -- to take just such a critical approach. And the variety of response to this request -- many contributors problematize the very idea of a critical approach -- testifies to the traumatic effect Derrida has had on traditional philosophical certainties. This volume includes substantive papers by Jean-Luc Nancy, Michel Haar, John Llewelyn, Geoffrey Bennington, John Sallis, Robert Bernasconi, Christopher Norris, Irene Harvey, Manfred Frank, Richard Rorty and by Jacques Derrida himself -- introduced by David Wood. Its remit is neither to praise nor to bury Derrida, but to draw out and confirm the openings he gives to philosophy, and whatever thinking may succeed it. Book jacket."--Jacket

23 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The deconstruction of time by David Wood( Book )

23 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Deconstruction of Time is the first book to examine what has become the fundamental, even defining, project in Continental philosophy: double rethinking. Begun by Edmund Husserl, this area of inquiry in part seeks to rethink time in terms of our experience of it; a second aspect, begun by Martin Heidegger, is an attempt to rethink ourselves (and philosophy itself) in terms of the results of that initial rethinking."--Jacket
Exceedingly Nietzsche : aspects of contemporary Nietzsche-interpretation by Exceedingly Nietzsche( Book )

19 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Multiple languages and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection brings together a wide range of original readings on Friedrich Nietzsche, reflecting many aspects of Neitzsche in contemporary philosophy, literature and the social sciences
Derrida and différance( Book )

17 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Society of the Friends of Difference would have to include Heraclitus, Nietzsche, Saussure, Freud, Adorno, Heidegger, Levinas, Deleuze, and Lyotard among its most prominent members. It is tempting to think of these figures as constituting a distinct philosophical tradition, one which would emphasize dissonance, separation, disparity, plurality, distinction, change, over against those who would continue the search for unity, identity, presence, permanence, foundations, structures, and essences
The Provocation of Levinas : rethinking the Other by Robert Bernasconi( Book )

19 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing recognition of Levinas's importance. It can in part be attributed to an increasing concern that twentieth-century continental philosophy seems to have no place for ethics. In making ethics fundamental to philosophy, rather than a problem to which we might one day return, Levinas transforms continental thought. The book brings together some of the most interesting and far-reaching responses to the work of Levinas, in three different areas: contemporary feminism, psychotherapy, and Levinas's relation to other philosophers. It includes a newly translated paper by Levinas on suffering, and a specially commissioned interview
Thinking after Heidegger by David Wood( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of Derrida, Heidegger, and spirit( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacques Derrida's De l'espirit: Heidegger et la question is one of his most interesting and accessible later works. In it, Derrida attempts to come to terms with Heidegger's Nazi connections by way of an extended reflection on Heidegger's use of the term "Geist." In Of Derrida, Heidegger, and Spirit, David Wood presents a variety of powerful and distinctive responses to Derrida's book
Kierkegaard and Levinas : ethics, politics, and religion( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent discussions in the philosophy of religion, ethics, and personal political philosophy have been deeply marked by the influence of two philosophers who are often thought to be in opposition to each other, Soren Kierkegaard and Emmanuel Levinas. Devoted expressly to the relationship between Levinas and Kierkegaard, this volume sets forth a more rigorous comparison and sustained engagement between them. Established and newer scholars representing varied philosophical traditions bring these two thinkers into dialogue in 12 sparkling essays. They consider similarities and differences in how each elaborated a unique philosophy of religion, and they present themes such as time, obligation, love, politics, God, transcendence, and subjectivity. This conversation between neighbours is certain to inspire further inquiry and ignite philosophical debate

The step back : ethics and politics after deconstruction by David Wood( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This original contribution to the ethical and political significance of philosophy addresses a number of major themes-identity, violence, the erotic, freedom, responsibility, religious belief, globalization-and critically engages with the work of Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Derrida, and Levinas. It promotes a unique blend of deconstructive critique and a certain English skepticism, leading to the affirmation of a negative capability-a patience and vigilance in the face of both human folly and philosophy's own homegrown pathologies. The author argues for the extension of our sense of openness and responsibility to animal life, and indeed life in general, and not just to the human. Book jacket
Philosophy at the limit by David Wood( Book )

12 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time after time by David Wood( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Time After Time, David Wood accepts, without pessimism, the broad postmodern idea of the end of time. Wood exposes the rich, stratified, and non-linear textures of temporal complexity that characterize our world. Time includes breakdowns, repetitions, memories, and narratives that confuse a clear and open understanding of what it means to occupy time and space. In these thoughtful and powerful essays, Wood engages Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida to demonstrate how repetition can preserve sameness and how creativity can interrupt time. Wood's original thinking about time charts a course through the breakdown in our trust in history and progress and poses a daring and productive way of doing phenomenology and deconstruction
Truth : engagements across philosophical traditions by José Medina( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Setting the stage with selections from Nietzsche and James, this reader on truth puts in conversation some of the main philosophical figures from the twentieth century in the analytic, continental, and pragmatist traditions. The volume's central focus is the value or normativity of truth, explored by constructing dialogues between different schools of thought. Topics include the normative relation between truth and subjectivity, consensus, art, testimony, power, and critique."--Jacket
Essays on philosophy in Australia by Jan T. J Srzednicki( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy flourished in Australia after the war. There was spectacular growth in both the number of departments and the number of philosophers. On top of this philosophy spread beyond the philosophy departments. Serious studies, and interest in philosophy is now common in faculties as diverse as law, science and education. Neither is this development merely quantitative, the Australian researcher has come of age and contributes widely to international debates. At least one movement originated in Australia. This makes the study of philosophy in Australia timely, evidenced by the number of articles concerned with this area that begin to appear in international journals. In Australia itself there is growing interest in the history of the country's philosophical development. There are discussions in conferences and meetings: the matter is now the subject of courses
