Michel Leiris writing the self by Seán Hand( )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 1,573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the first full-length study in English of Michel Leiris's work. Frequently cited as a central figure in contemporary French culture, Leiris was an outstanding writer whose double career as ethnographer and creative writer places him at important points of intersection within French cultural history. Sean Hand explores Leiris's active participation in some of the most striking intellectual and artistic movements of the twentieth century: surrealism in the twenties, ethnography in the thirties and existentialism in the forties. Hand locates his writing in these different contexts in relation to the major artistic, political and philosophical concepts of the period

The Levinas reader by Emmanuel Lévinas( Book )
23 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Emmanuel Levinas has been Professor of Philosophy at the Sorbonne and the director of the Ecole Normale Israelite Orientale. Through such works as "Totality and Infinity" and "Otherwise than Being", he has exerted a profound influence on twentieth-century continental philosophy, providing inspiration for Derrida, Lyotard, Blanchot and Irigaray. "The Levinas Reader" collects, often for the first time in English, essays by Levinas encompassing every aspect of his thought: the early phenomenological studies written under the guidance and inspiration of Husserl and Heidegger; the fully developed ethical critique of such totalizing philosophies; the pioneering texts on the moral dimension to aesthetics; the rich and subtle readings of the Talmud which are an exemplary model of an ethical, transcendental philosophy at work; the admirable meditations on current political issues. Sean Hand's introduction gives a complete overview of Levinas's work and situates each chapter within his general contribution to phenomenology, aesthetics, religion, politics and, above all, ethics. Each essay has been prefaced with a brief introduction presenting the basic issues and the necessary background, and suggesting ways to study the text further. -- Back cover
Facing the other : the ethics of Emmanuel Lévinas by Seán Hand( Book )
13 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Emmanuel Levinas is one of the key philosophers in the post-Heideggerian field and an increasingly central presence in contemporary debates about identity and responsibility. His work spans and encapsulates the major philosophical and ethical concerns of the twentieth century, combining the insights of a basic phenomenological training with the demands of a Jewish culture and its basis in the endless exegesis of Talmudic reading. His concerns and subjects are wide: they include the Other, the body, infinity, women, Jewish-Christian relations, Zionism and the impulses and limits of philosoph

Nietzsche, the body and culture : philosophy as a philological genealogy by Eric Blondel( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"First published in France in 1987, this book provides a definitive account of how to read and interpret Nietzsche, given that it is the work of Nietzsche himself that has so fundamentally changed our understanding of what 'reading' and 'interpreting' mean. The book's title points to the two central questions raised by Nietzsche: how culture is formed and how culture forms us; and the extent to which we are more body than spirit."--Bloomsbury Publishing
