Of Jews and animals by Andrew E Benjamin( file )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,055 libraries worldwide
By developing his own conception of the 'figure' Andrew Benjamin has written an innovative and provocative study of the complex relationship between philosophy, the history of painting and their presentation of both Jews and animals. As Benjamin makes clear the 'Other' is never abstract. He underscores the means by which the ethical imperative, arising from the way the history of philosophy and the history of art are constructed, shows us how to respond to an already identified, even if unacknowledged, determinant other
Place, commonality and judgement continental philosophy and the ancient Greeks by Andrew E Benjamin( file )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 947 libraries worldwide
In this important and highly original book, place, commonality and judgment provide the framework within which works central to the Greek philosophical and literary tradition are usefully located and reinterpreted. Greek life, it can be argued, was defined by the interconnection of place, commonality and judgment. Similarly within the Continental philosophical tradition topics such as place, judgment, law and commonality have had a pervasive centrality. Works by Jacques Derrida and Giorgio Agamben amongst others attest to the current exigency of these topics. Yet the ways in which they are int

Judging Lyotard ( Book )
18 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 677 libraries worldwide
Best known for his work The Postmodern Condition, Jean-Francois Lyotard is one of the leading figures in contemporary French philosophy. This is the first collection of articles to offer an estimation and critique of his work. While the various chapters deal with different aspects of Lyotard's writings, they are all concerned with the question of judgement. The importance to Lyotard of judgement, and how it is to be judged, is a recurrent theme throughout the entire range of his work. It is particularly evident in his continuing engagement with the work of Kant. Lyotard's own essay, Sensus Communis, which opens this volume, investigates through Kant the presuppositions of judgement. Other essays variously consider how in his writings Lyotard has rendered problematic existing forms of aesthetic, ethical, legal and political judgement. Judging Lyotard is an important collection that will re-introduce Lyotard to English-speaking audiences

Art, mimesis, and the avant-garde : aspects of a philosophy of difference by Andrew E Benjamin( Book )
9 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and held by 435 libraries worldwide
Art, Mimesis and the Avant-Garde explores the relationship between art and philosophy. Andrew Benjamin argues for a reworking of the task of philosophy in terms of the centrality of ontology. It is in relation to this centrality, understood through the differences between modes of being, that art, mimesis, and the avant-garde come to be presented. Fundamental parts of this book include the original interpretations of important contemporary painters and their themes: Lucian Freud's self-portraits, Francis Bacon's use of mirrors, R.B. Kitaj and Jewish identity, Anselm Kiefer and iconoclasm. Apar

Translation and the nature of philosophy : a new theory of words by Andrew E Benjamin( Book )
9 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 287 libraries worldwide
This engrossing study, first published in 1989, explores the basic mutuality between philosophy and translation. By studying the conceptions of translation in Plato, Seneca, Davidson, Walter Benjamin and Freud, Andrew Benjamin reveals the interplay between the two disciplines not only in their relationship to language, but also at a deeper, cognitive level. Benjamin engages throughout with the central tenets of post-structuralism: the concept of a constant yet illusive 'true' meaning has lost authority, but remains a problem. The fact of translation seems to defy the notion that 'mean
