Production of Presence

This book offers a personalized account of some of the central theoretical movements in literary studies and in the humanities over the past thirty years, together with an equally personal view of a possible future. It develops the provocative thesis that interpretation alone cannot do justice to the dimension in which cultural phenomena and cultural events become tangible and have an impact on us.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts / Gegenwart, Note: 1,0, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Von Gustave Flaubert ist der Ausspruch überliefert, er wolle am liebsten einmal „ein Buch über nichts“ schreiben. Das „nichts“, das dem Schriftsteller dabei vorschwebte, war in Wirklichkeit freilich kein „Nichts“, sondern „etwas“ - etwas Bedeutungsloses, etwas, das wegen seiner Alltäglichkeit bis dahin üblicherweise außerhalb des literarischen Interesses lag. In diesem Sinne wird das Wort „nichts“ im Alltag ständig verwendet: Es bezeichnet nicht die vollständig...

W. V. Quine

The most influential philosopher in the analytic tradition of his time, Willard Van Orman Quine (1908-2000) changed the way we think about language and its relation to the world. His rejection of the analytic/synthetic distinction, his scepticism about modal logic and essentialism, his celebrated theme of the indeterminacy of translation, and his advocacy of naturalism have challenged key assumptions of the prevailing orthodoxy and helped shape the development of much of recent philosophy. This introduction to Quine's philosophical ideas provides philosophers, students, and generalists with an authoritative analysis of Quine's lasting contributions to philosophy. The major themes covered inc...

Schopenhauer

Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) was one of the greatest writers and German philosophers of the nineteenth century. His work influenced figures as diverse as Wagner, Freud and Nietzsche. Best known as a pessimist, he was one of the few philosophers read and admired by Wittgenstein. In this comprehensive introduction, Julian Young covers all the main aspects of Schopenhauer's philosophy. Beginning with an overview of Schopenhauer's life and work, he introduces the central aspects of his metaphysics fundamental to understanding his work as a whole: his philosophical idealism and debt to the philosophy of Kant; his attempt to answer the question of what the world is; his account of science; and ...
