Abstract:

"In a series of alternative dialogues, philosophers Laura Lyn Inglis and Peter K. Steinfeld rethink the canon of Western thought using hermeneutics of subversion that reads between the lines. Here one will read about Plato's cave and the Eleusinian mysteries; what might happen if Anselm's proof for God encountered an argument for a Goddess; a version of Kierkegaard's myth of Abraham in which he must respond to Sarah; a curious conversation between Nietzsche's Ubermensch and an old woman in a nursery rhyme; and a Heidegger who must confront the matricidal nature of his abyss. Inglis and Steinfeld's alternative readings create texts that never occurred. But how might philosophy have been different if they had?"--Jacket.
