J.J. Rousseau : an afterlife of words by Eli Friedlander( )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and German and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eli Friedlander reads Rousseau's autobiography, Reveries of the Solitary Walker, as philosophy. Reading this work against Descartes's Meditations, Friedlander shows how Rousseau's memorable transformation of experience through writing opens up the possibility of affirming even the most dejected state of being and allows the emergence of the innocence of nature out of the ruins of all social attachments. In tracing the re-creation of a human subject in reverie, Friedlander remains alive to the very form of the experience of reading the Reveries, by showing the ways this work needs to - and in effect does - generate a reader, without betraying Rousseau's utter solitude."--Jacket
Walter Benjamin : a philosophical portrait by Eli Friedlander( )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and German and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedlander finds in Benjamin's early works initial formulations of the different dimensions of his philosophical thinking. He leads through them to Benjamin's views on the dialectical image, the nature of language, the relation of beauty and truth, embodiment, dream and historical awakening, myth and history, as well as the afterlife and realization of meaning. Those notions are articulated both in themselves and in relation to central figures of the philosophical tradition. They are further viewed as leading to and coming together in The Arcades Project. Friedlander takes that incomplete work to be the central theater where these earlier philosophical preoccupations were to be played out. Benjamin envisaged in it the possibility of the highest order of thought taking the form of writing whose contents are the concrete time-bound particularities of human experience. Addressing the question of the possibility of such a presentation of philosophical truth provides the guiding thread for constellating the disparate moments of Benjamin's writings."--Pub. desc
Signs of sense : reading Wittgenstein's Tractatus by Eli Friedlander( )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and German and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the heart of Eli Friedlander's interpretation is the internal relation between the logical and the ethical in the Tractatus, a relation that emerges in the work of drawing the limits of language. To show how the Tractatus, far from separating the ethical and the logical into distinct domains, instead brings out their essential affinity, Friedlander focuses on Wittgenstein's use of the term "form," particularly his characterization of the form of objects. In this reading, the concept of form points to a threefold distinction in the text among the problematics of facts, objects, and the world. Most important, it provides a key to understanding how Wittgenstein's work opens a perspective on the world through the recognition of the form of objects rather than through the grasping of facts - thus revealing the dimensions of subjectivity involved in having a world, or in assuming that form of experience apart from systematic logic." "Bearing on the question of the divide between analytic and Continental philosophy, this interpretation views Wittgenstein's work as a possible mediation between these two central philosophical traditions of the modern age. It will be of interest not only to Wittgenstein scholars but to anyone concerned with twentieth-century philosophy."--Jacket
Expressions of judgment : an essay on Kant's aesthetics by Eli Friedlander( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Expressions of Judgment emphasizes the internal connection of judgment and meaning in Kant{u2019}s aesthetics, showing how the pleasure in judging is intimately related to our capacity to draw meaning from our encounter with beauty. Although the meaningfulness of aesthetic judgment is most evident in the response to art, the appreciation of nature{u2019}s beauty has an equal share in the significant experience of our world. Friedlander{u2019}s attention to fundamental dualities underlying the Third Critique{u2014}such as that of art and nature{u2014}underscores how its themes are subordinated systematically to the central task Kant sets himself: that of devising a philosophical blueprint for the mediation between the realms of nature and freedom
