An atheism that is not humanist emerges in French thought by Stefanos Geroulanos( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French philosophy changed dramatically in the second quarter of the twentieth century. In the wake of World War I and, later, the Nazi and Soviet disasters, major philosophers such as Kojeve, Levinas, Heidegger, Koyre, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, and Hyppolite argued that man could no longer fill the void left by the 'death of God' without also calling up the worst in human history and denigrating the dignity of the human subject. In response, they contributed to a new belief that man should no longer be viewed as the basis for existence, thought, and ethics; rather, human nature became dependent on other concepts and structures, including Being, language, thought, and culture. This argument, which was to be paramount for existentialism and structuralism, came to dominate postwar thought. This intellectual history of these developments argues that at their heart lay a new atheism that rejected humanism as insufficient and ultimately

Knowledge of life by Georges Canguilhem( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the work of thinkers such as Michel Foucault, Francois Jacob, Louis Althusser, and Pierre Bourdieu demonstrates, Georges Canguilhem exerted tremendous influence on the philosophy of science and French philosophy more generally. In Knowledge of Life, a book that spans twenty years of his essays and lectures, Canguilhem offers a series of epistemological histories that seek to establish and clarify the stakes, ambiguities, and emergence of philosophical and biological concepts that defined the rise of modern biology." "How do transformations in biology and modern medicine shape conceptions of life? How do philosophical concepts feed into biological ideas and experimental practices, and how are they themselves transformed? How does knowledge "undo the experience of life so as to help man remake what life has made without him, in him, or outside of him?" Knowledge of Life is Canguilhem's effort to explain how the movements of knowledge and life come to rest upon each other."--Jacket
Experimente im Individuum Kurt Goldstein und die Fragen des Organismus by Stefanos Geroulanos( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'During his escape from the Nazis, the neurologist Kurt Goldstein wrote a book in 1933-34, which brought together the findings of years of clinical research on brain injury, aphasia, tonic muscles and perceptual disturbances in a plant. The structure of the organism would become his masterpiece, a large-scale synthesis of his neurological, physiological and therapeutic approach. Goldstein developed in a concept of the individual, which goes far beyond the borders of normally with his name placed on the connection aphasia research and neurology and should lead to a comprehensive reassessment of the terms norm, health and healing in medicine and psychiatry. Experiments in the individual examined Goldstein's concept of organism, patient and self-reference to the close linkage of its activities as a physician, researcher and epistemologist. Beyond the holistic and vitalistic debates on Goldstein's work situate Stefanos Geroulanos and Todd Meyers Goldstein's epistemological criticism and therapeutic innovations within a context of changes in physiology that are driven by the violence of the First World War. Using recently rediscovered films research the authors focus on the experimental research, which is the structure of the organism based on the book, not least brings Goldstein therapeutic concerns expressed. Finally, they explore Goldstein's far-reaching philosophical influence, including in the work of Ernst Cassirer, Georges Canguilhem and Maurice Merleau-Ponty.' Publishers website
