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

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 221 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
Transparency in postwar France : a critical history of the present by Stefanos Geroulanos( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book returns to a time and place when the concept of transparency was met with deep suspicion. It offers a panorama of postwar French thought where attempts to show the perils of transparency in politics, ethics, and knowledge led to major conceptual inventions, many of which we now take for granted. Between 1945 and 1985, academics, artists, revolutionaries, and state functionaries spoke of transparency in pejorative terms. Associating it with the prying eyes of totalitarian governments, they undertook a critical project against it-in education, policing, social psychology, economic policy, and the management of information. Focusing on Sartre, Lacan, Canguilhem, Levi-Strauss, Leroi-Gourhan, Foucault, Derrida, and others, Transparency in Postwar France explores the work of ethicists, who proposed that individuals are transparent neither to each other nor to themselves, and philosophers, who clamored for new epistemological foundations. These decades saw the emergence of the colonial and phenomenological "other," the transformation of ideas of normality, and the effort to overcome Enlightenment-era humanisms and violence in the name of freedom. These thinkers' innovations remain centerpieces for any resistance to contemporary illusions that tolerate or enable power and social coercion
The scaffolding of sovereignty : global and aesthetic perspectives on the history of a concept by Zvi Ben-Dor Benite( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is sovereignty? Often taken for granted or seen as the ideology of European states vying for supremacy and conquest, the concept of sovereignty remains underexamined both in the history of its practices and in its aesthetic and intellectual underpinnings. Using global intellectual history as a bridge between approaches, periods, and areas, "The Scaffolding of Sovereignty" deploys a comparative and theoretically rich conception of sovereignty to reconsider the different schemes on which it has been based or renewed, the public stages on which it is erected or destroyed, and the images and ideas on which it rests. The essays reveal that sovereignty has always been supported, complemented, and enforced by a complex aesthetic and intellectual scaffolding. This collection takes a multidisciplinary approach to investigating the concept on a global scale, ranging from an account of a Manchu emperor building a mosque to a discussion of the continuing power of Lenin's corpse, from an analysis of the death of kings in classical Greek tragedy to an exploration of the imagery of "the people" in the Age of Revolutions. Across seventeen chapters that closely study specific historical regimes and conflicts, the book's contributors examine intersections of authority, power, theatricality, science and medicine, jurisdiction, rulership, human rights, scholarship, religious and popular ideas, and international legal thought that support or undermine different instances of sovereign power and its representations

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 4 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

Reconstructing the National Narrative: Questions of Sovereignty and the Rebuilding of Montecassino, 1944--1964 by Elizabeth A Michel( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation uses the framework of sovereignty to examine the destruction, in February 1944, of the famed Benedict monastery of Montecassino, and its rebuilding, from 1944--1964, to be "as it was and where it was." Rather than limiting the concept of sovereignty to legalistic discussions of state actors, I argue that only by understanding the claims or disavowals of legitimate authority by state and non-state actors can we understand fully the choices made to destroy, protect, restore or memorialize cultural heritage. The bombardment of Montecassino occurred as the Allied coalition was wracked by dissension over questions of authority, and in circumstances that made it difficult for the Allies exercise control over territory. The concept of "military necessity" both expanded and limited Allied sovereignty, thus enabling the bombardment of a monument that nearly all parties involved agreed was worthy of protection
The Turn To Childhood: Toward a Theory of the "Kinderstube" in Stifter, Rilke, and Benjamin by Lauren Shizuko Stone( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In mobilizing the various ways Benjamin's notion of "dwelling" (wohnen) provides a framework for thinking about representations of the bourgeois home, this dissertation argues that German literary writers of childhood from the mid-19th century to the early 20th century were also able to capitalize on such ordinary tropes of containment and circumscription in the image of the Kinderstube (children's parlor). The study addresses exemplary prose texts that were written during the solidification of the bourgeois class, specifically texts that appeared between the Romantic interest in aesthetic theories of childhood and the autobiographical explosion of the 20 th century. Starting with Realism and reading through Modernism, this project locates an emerging child figure in its shift away from both fairy tales and the Bildungsroman. In particular, these narratives take up the scene of childhood as an instrumental trope, binding representations of everyday domestic life with notions of 'origin, ' understood not as a question of psychological development, or even potentiality, but rather as itself a philosophical metaphor rendered in spatial terms. Through close readings of passages from prose works by Adalbert Stifter, R.M. Rilke, and Walter Benjamin, I show that these prototypes are able to serve as experimental zones for working out the relationship between empirical, everyday experience and synthetic notions such as fantasy, history, or transcendence. With great attention to rendering the material world, each author positions these quotidian figures as models for theoretical tensions that reach well beyond ordinary life, where each articulation of childhood operates as a model (1) for containing epistemological uncertainty (Stifter), (2) for phenomenological investigation as an analogue to poetic production (Rilke), and (3) for an aesthetic project that reframes the representation of history as a dialectic of space (Benjamin)
'More than Love': Eros and Family in Rosenzweig and Levinas by Andrea Dara Cooper( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Constructions of family relationships appear prominently in the major works of Franz Rosenzweig and Emmanuel Levinas, informing their philosophical approaches. This dissertation compares these influential twentieth-century thinkers by using family as a frame of analysis. I consider how they each conceptualize the erotic couple, maternity, paternity, filiation and fraternity. I investigate Levinas's conception of ethics and the feminine in relation to Rosenzweig's reading of the Song of Songs in his magnum opus, The Star of Redemption. My analysis is located alongside readings of kinship relations in Greek tragedies, such as the brother-sister bond in Sophocles' Antigone and the father-daughter sacrificial relationship in Aeschylus's Agamemnon. By bringing together theories of gender, psychoanalysis, and literature, I offer critical readings of each thinker's work
