Infinity and perspective by Karsten Harries( )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 1,878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two spirits preside over the book: Alberti, the Renaissance author on art and architecture, whose passionate interest in perspective and point of view offers a key to modernity; and Nicolaus Cusanus, the fifteenth-century cardinal, whose work shows that such interest cannot be divorced from speculations on the infinity of God. The title Infinity and Perspective connects the two to each other and to the shape of modernity."--BOOK JACKET
Between nihilism and faith : a commentary on Either/Or by Karsten Harries( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: If the Enlightenment turned to reason to reoccupy the place left vacant by the death of God, the last two centuries have undermined such faith in reason. We cannot escape this history. The specter of nihilism haunts Either/Or. To exorcize it is Kierkegaard's most fundamental concern. But where are we to turn? To an aesthetic transfiguration of, or escape from reality? Does ethics promise an answer? Or is all that is left an irrational leap to religion? All such questions are shadowed by the specter of Kitsch. What does it mean to be authentic in the modern world?

Art matters : a critical commentary on Heidegger's "The origin of the work of art" by Karsten Harries( )

18 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years there has thus been a great deal of talk about a possible death of art. As the title of Heidegger's "The Origin of the Work of Art" suggests, the essay challenges such talk, just as it in turn is challenged by such talk, talk that is supported by the current state of the art-world. It was Hegel, who most profoundly argued that the shape of our modern world no longer permits us to grant art the significance it once possessed. Hegel's proclamation of the end of art in its highest sense shadows this commentary, as it shadows Heidegger's essay. Heidegger's problematic turn from the philosopher Hegel to the poet Hölderlin is born of the conviction that we must not allow Hegel to here have the last word. At stake is the future of art. But more importantly, if we are to accept Heidegger's argument, at stake is the future of humanity. But all who are eager to find in Heidegger's essay pointers concerning where not just art, but we should be heading, should be made wary by Heidegger's politicizing of art and aestheticizing of politics. Both remain temptations that demand a critical response. This commentary demonstrates the continued relevance of Heidegger's reflections

The antinomy of Being by Karsten Harries( )

9 editions published between 2019 and 2021 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One thing this book attempts to show is that Kant's antinomies open a way towards an overcoming of that nihilism that is a corollary of the understanding of reality that presides over our science and technology. But when Harries is speaking of the antinomy of Being he is not so much thinking of Kant, as of Heidegger. Not that Heidegger speaks of an antinomy of Being. But his thinking of Being leads him and will lead those who follow him on his path of thinking into this antinomy. At bottom, however, the author is neither concerned with Heidegger?s nor Kant?s thought. He shows that our thinking inevitably leads us into some version of this antinomy whenever it attempts to grasp reality in toto, without loss. All such attempts will fall short of their goal. And that they do so, Harries claims, is not something to be grudgingly accepted, but embraced as a necessary condition of living a meaningful life. That is why the antinomy of Being matters and should concern us all."--Back cover

Wahrheit : die Architektur der Welt by Karsten Harries( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was ist Wahrheit? Wann immer unser Denken versucht, die Wirklichkeit vollständig zu begreifen, verwickelt es sich in Antinomien. Die Wahrheit entzieht sich uns. Die Architektur der Welt bleibt eine Konstruktion.Nie scheint die Wirklichkeit unserem Erkenntnis- oder Sicherheitsbedürfnis zu entsprechen. Nie lässt sich ihre Komplexität in Gänze erfassen. Doch bereits der Versuch diesen Mangel denkend oder handelnd zu beheben, macht uns taub für ihren Anspruch. Jeder Versuch die Wirklichkeit in das Gestell einer Konstruktion zu zwängen, ihren Bauplan zu ergründen, muss an der Wirklichkeit selbst scheitern.Karsten Harries geht bei den großen Denkern der Philosophiegeschichte auf die Suche nach dem Begriff der Wahrheit. Er forscht bei Sartre, Nietzsche und Heidegger, Schopenhauer, Kant, Fichte und Hegel, Spinoza und Descartes nach Erklärungen für den Bauplan der Welt. Und auch literarische »Wahrheiten« durchleuchtet sein neues Buch nach ihrem Umgang mit Erkenntnis und Wirklichkeit.Als Ergebnis steht das Plädoyer, die Hoffnung endgültig aufzugeben, irgendwann einmal die Wirklichkeit in eine Begriffsarchitektur einpassen zu können. Denn nur ein solcher Verzicht öffnet uns dem Anspruch unserer Mitmenschen und der Natur, gibt uns zu verstehen, dass wir nicht uns selbst gehören, dass wir, was unserem Leben Maß und Richtung geben kann, nicht erfinden, sondern empfangen müssen. Karsten Harries legt überzeugend dar, dass wir trotzdem nicht das Haus, das uns unsere Vernunft gebaut hat, abreißen dürfen. Stattdessen fordert er, im Haus der Vernunft die Fenster und Türen weit zu öffnen: Nur so erhält das Leben einen Sinn
