The future of religion by Richard Rorty( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 1,697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though coming from different and distinct intellectual traditions, Richard Rorty and Gianni Vattimo are united in their criticism of the metaphysical tradition. The challenges they put forward extend beyond philosophy and entail a reconsideration of the foundations of belief in God and the religious life. They urge that the rejection of metaphysical truth does not necessitate the death of religion; instead it opens new ways of imagining what it is to be religious - ways that emphasize charity, solidarity, and irony. This unique collaboration, which includes a dialogue between the two philosophers, is notable not only for its fusion of pragmatism (Rorty) and hermeneutics (Vattimo) but also for its recognition of the limits of both traditional religious belief and modern secularism."--Jacket

Hermeneutic communism : from Heidegger to Marx by Gianni Vattimo( )

25 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having lost much of its political clout and theoretical power, communism no longer represents an appealing alternative to capitalism. In its original Marxist formulation, communism promised an ideal of development, but only through a logic of war, and while a number of reformist governments still promote this ideology, their legitimacy has steadily declined since the fall of the Berlin wall. Separating communism from its metaphysical foundations, which include an abiding faith in the immutable laws of history and an almost holy conception of the proletariat, Gianni Vattimo and Santiago Zabala recast Marx's theories at a time when capitalism's metaphysical moorings �in technology, empire, and industrialization �are buckling. While Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri call for a return of the revolutionary left, Vattimo and Zabala fear this would lead only to more violence and failed political policy. Instead, they adopt an antifoundationalist stance drawn from the hermeneutic thought of Martin Heidegger, Jacques Derrida, and Richard Rorty. Hermeneutic communism leaves aside the ideal of development and the general call for revolution; it relies on interpretation rather than truth and proves more flexible in different contexts. Hermeneutic communism motivates a resistance to capitalism's inequalities yet intervenes against violence and authoritarianism by emphasizing the interpretative nature of truth. Paralleling Vattimo and Zabala's well-known work on the weakening of religion, Hermeneutic Communism realizes the fully transformational, politically effective potential of Marxist thought.--
The hermeneutic nature of analytic philosophy : a study of Ernst Tugendhat by Santiago Zabala( )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 1,268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ernst Tugendhat is known more for his philosophical turn than for his phenomenological studies or for his position within analytic philosophy, and this creates some confusion regarding his philosophical propensities. Is Tugendhat analytic or Continental? Is he a follower of Wittgenstein or Heidegger? Does he belong in the culture of analysis or in that of tradition? Santiago Zabala presents Tugendhat as an example of merged horizons, promoting a philosophical historiography that is concerned more with dialogue and less with classification. In doing so, he places us squarely within a dialogue culture of the future and proves that any such labels impoverish philosophical research." "Santiago Zabala is Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at Potsdam University Institute of Philosophy."--Jacket
The remains of being : hermeneutic ontology after metaphysics by Santiago Zabala( )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Basic Concepts, Heidegger claims that "Being is the most worn-out" and yet also that Being "remains constantly available." This book radicalizes the consequences of these little known but significant affirmations. Revisiting the work of Jacques Derrida, Reiner Schürmann, Jean-Luc Nancy, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Ernst Tugendhat, and Gianni Vattimo, the author finds these remains of Being within which ontological thought can still operate. Being is an event, he argues, a kind of generosity and gift that generates astonishment in those who experience it. This sense of wonder has fueled questions of meaning for centuries-from Plato to the present day. Post-metaphysical accounts of Being, as exemplified by the thinkers of this analysis, as well as by Nietzsche, Dewey, and others, don't abandon Being. Rather, they reject rigid, determined modes of essentialist thought in favor of more fluid, malleable, and adaptable conceptions, redefining the pursuit and meaning of philosophy itself
Art's claim to truth by Gianni Vattimo( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Hungarian and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First collected in Italy in 1985, Art's Claim to Truth is considered by many philosophers to be one of Gianni Vattimo's most important works. Newly revised for English readers, the book begins with a challenge to Plato, Aristotle, Kant, and Hegel, who viewed art as a metaphysical aspect of reality rather than a futuristic anticipation of it. Following Martin Heidegger's interpretation of the history of philosophy, Vattimo outlines the existential ontological conditions of aesthetics, paying particular attention to the works of Kandinsky, which reaffirm the ontological implications
Nihilism & emancipation : ethics, politics, and law by Gianni Vattimo( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A marriage of philosophy and practical politics, this collection is the first of Gianni Vattimo's many books to combine his intellectual pursuits with his public and political life. Vattimo is a paradoxical figure, at once a believing Christian and a vociferous critic of the Catholic Church, an outspoken liberal but not a former communist, and a recognized authority on Nietzsche and Heidegger as well as a prominent public intellectual and member of the European parliament. Building on his unique position as a philosopher and politician. Vattimo takes on some of the most pressing questions of our times: Is it still possible, long after Nietzsche proclaimed the death of God, to talk of moral imperatives, individual rights, or political freedom? Are these values still relevant in today's world?"--Jacket

Being shaken : ontology and the event by Michael Marder( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the fact that over the last twenty years philosophies of the event have become more prevalent, their overall relation to the ontological paradigm remains largely unthought. This collection explores ways in which events destabilize this paradigm, producing powerful tremors that shake Being to its core. This book considers the personal, ethical, theological, aesthetic, and political dimensions of such disquietude, offering a multifaceted approach to the relation of ontology and the event

The West removed : economics, democracy, freedom : a counter-history of our civilization by Paolo Ercolani( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seven chapters of this book cover a variety of concepts (liberalism, freedom, Marxism) and classic thinkers (Mill, Marx, Hayek, Popper) in order to disclose several myths we’ve become accustomed to take for granted in the West. It posits that exploration of these myths is crucial for understanding the essence of West or, better, for seeing what has been “removed” from the West as the title of this book alludes to. What emerges is a rigorous and surprising counter-history of our civilization. --

Religionens fremtid by Richard Rorty( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in Danish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I dag opfatter mange mennesker sig som religiøse, uden at de dermed nødvendigvis tilslutter sig den kristendom, der i Vesten igennem to årtusinder har været den dominerende religion. Bogen rejser ikke mindst spørgsmålet om, hvorvidt oplysningen, sekulariseringen og demokratiseringen, der satte ind for et par århundreder siden, virkelig har distanceret os fra arven fra den kristne religion, eller om sekulariseringen snarere må ses som en konsekvens af kristendommen selv. Hvis man ønsker et indblik i den filosofiske og idehistoriske baggrund for denne diskussion, så er Religionens fremtid og dens
