Abstract:

This title analyses how modern conceptions of politics, ethics, and critical thought can be re-evaluated through the question of pain. Using a series of rigorous encounters with key critical figures, it argues that modern thought is, in more than one sense, the 'thought of pain'. It investigates the idea that modern European philosophy after Kant is less about offering the conceptual equipment to tackle pain in explanatory terms, and more about the experience of thought that accompanies the forms of pain and suffering about which it speaks.
