Nietzsche on language, consciousness, and the body by Christian Emden( )

15 editions published between 1900 and 2005 in English and held by 1,743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the early 1870s through the 1880s, language, consciousness, and the body stood as cornerstones of the philosophical project that culminated in Nietzsche's "anthropology of knowledge." Asserting both the timeliness and lasting value of Nietzsche's writings during this period, Emden argues that they were not based on a specific understanding of the philosophy of language or a specific conception of truth but were instead shaped by his interest in the theory of knowledge, philological scholarship, and contemporary life sciences." "Leveraging a truly astounding command of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century scientific and philological texts, Emden is able to situate Nietzsche's writings on language and rhetoric within their wider historical context, allowing him to distill the content of Nietzsche's writing from the form of his radical presentation. In the process, Emden reveals Nietzsche as more timely and less outrageous than he is widely thought to be, appearing instead as a powerful thinker interested in understanding the philosophical import of the heady scientific developments of his day. Finally, drawing on much previously unpublished and undiscussed Nietzsche material, Emden examines the role of metaphor and interpretation, reasserting the relevance of rhetoric to philosophy, in consonance with Nietzsche's own statements and practices."--Jacket
Beyond Habermas : democracy, knowledge, and the public sphere by Christian Emden( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1960s the German philosopher Jürgen Habermas introduced the notion of a 'bourgeois public sphere' in order to describe the symbolic arena of political life and conversation that originated with the cultural institutions of the early eighteenth-century; since then the 'public sphere' itself has become perhaps one of the most debated concepts at the very heart of modernity. For Habermas, the tension between the administrative power of the state, with its understanding of sovereignty, and the emerging institutions of the bourgeoisie �coffee houses, periodicals, encyclopedias, literary culture, etc. �was seen as being mediated by the public sphere, making it a symbolic site of public reasoning. This volume examines whether the 'public sphere' remains a central explanatory model in the social sciences, political theory, and the humanities.--

Initially propounded by the philosopher Jurgen Habermas in 1962 in order to describe the realm of social discourse between the state on one hand, and the private sphere of the market and the family on the other, the concept of a bourgeois public sphere quickly became a central point of reference in the humanities and social sciences
