Ricoeur across the disciplines by Scott Davidson( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While a number of books and anthologies on Ricoeur's thought have been published over the past decade, Ricoeur Across the Disciplines is unique in its multidisciplinary scope. The books currently available are typically one of either two kinds: either they provide a general overview of Ricoeur's thought or they focus on a narrow set of themes within a specific discipline. While other books may allude to the multidisciplinary potential for Ricoeur's thought, this book is the first to carry out a truly multidisciplinary investigation of his work. The aim of this approach is not only to draw out

Totality and infinity at 50( Book )

Hermeneutics and phenomenology in Paul Ricoeur : between text and phenomenon by Scott Davidson( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hermeneutics and Phenomenology in Paul Ricoeur: Between Text and Phenomenon calls attention to the dynamic interaction that takes place between hermeneutics and phenomenology in Ricoeur’s thought. It could be said that Ricoeur’s thought is placed under a twofold demand: between the rigor of the text and the requirements of the phenomenon. The rigor of the text calls for fidelity to what the text actually says, while the requirement of the phenomenon is established by the Husserlian call to return “to the things themselves.” These two demands are interwoven insofar as there is a hermeneutic component of the phenomenological attempt to go beyond the surface of things to their deeper meaning, just as there is a phenomenological component of the hermeneutic attempt to establish a critical distance toward the world to which we belong. For this reason, Ricoeur’s thought involves a back and forth movement between the text and the phenomenon. Although this double movement was a theme of many of Ricoeur’s essays in the middle of his career, the essays in this book suggest that hermeneutic phenomenology remains implicit throughout his work. The chapters aim to highlight, in much greater detail, how this back and forth movement between phenomenology and hermeneutics takes place with respect to many important philosophical themes, including the experience of the body, history, language, memory, personal identity, and intersubjectivity
From communism to capitalism : theory of a catastrophe by Michel Henry( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both a unique witness of transformative events in the late 20th century, and a prescient analysis of our present economic crises from a major French philosopher, Michel Henry's From Communism to Capitalism adds an important economic dimension to his earlier social critique. It begins by tracing the collapse of communist regimes back to their failure to implement Marx's original insights into the irreplaceable value of the living individual. Henry goes on to apply this same criticism to the surviving capitalist economic systems, portending their eventual and inevitable collapse. The influence of Michel Henry's radical revision of phenomenological thought is only now beginning to be felt in full force, and this edition is the first English translation of his major engagement with socio-economic questions. From Communism to Capitalism reinterprets politics and economics in light of the failure of socialism and the pervasiveness of global capitalism, and Henry subjects both to critique on the basis of his own philosophy of life. His notion of the individual is one that, as subjective affect, subtends both Marxist collectivism and liberalism simultaneously. In addition to providing a crucial economic elaboration of Henry's influential social critiques, this work provides a context for understanding the 2008 financial shock and offers important insights into the political motivations behind the 'Arab spring'

La barbarie by Michel Henry( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbarism represents acritique, from the perspective of Michel Henry's unique philosophy of life, of the increasing potential of science and technology to destroy the roots of culture and the value of the individual human being. For Henry, barbarism is the result of a devaluation of human life and culture that can be traced back to the spread of quantification, the scientific method and technology over all aspects of modern life. The book develops a compelling critique of capitalism, technology and education and provides a powerful insight into the political implications of Henry's work. It also opens up a new dialogue with other influential cultural critics, such as Marx, Husserl, and Heidegger. First published in French in 1987, Barbarism aroused great interest as well as virulent criticism. Today the book reveals what for Henry is a cruel reality: the tragic feeling of powerlessness experienced by the cultured person. Above all he argues for the importance of returning to philosophy in order to analyse the root causes of barbarism in our world

Flesh and body : on the phenomenology of Husserl by Didier Franck( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flesh and Body, originally released in French in 1981, is a pioneering study that provides both a close reading of Husserl's phenomenology of relationship between flesh and body as well as Didier Franck's own highly original account of flesh. Husserl's work on the body influenced many phenomenologists, including Merleau-Ponty, Ricoeur, Henry, and Levinas, to name just a few. But his work was often misunderstood. Franck thus guides the reader carefully through Husserl's multi-layered and complex observations about the notions of on the flesh and the body. Franck shows that the flesh is never

Material phenomenology by Michel Henry( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En reposant la question fondamentale de la phénoménologie, et de la philosophie - la question de la donation -, en interprétant celle-ci non plus seulement, selon la pensée traditionnelle de l'Occident, comme apparition dans un monde mais comme l'étreinte invisible de la vie en son propre pathos, la phénoménologie matérielle soulève des problèmes nouveaux et paradoxaux. Trois d'entre eux font l'objet des présentes études : 1 / La matière de la conscience, l'Impression, n'est plus un contenu opaque attendant l'éclaircissement de la forme intentionnelle, ne s'exhibant que dans l'Ek-stase du Temps : elle accomplit la Révélation en elle-même, dans sa chair affective. Au lieu de définir une discipline mineure, vite oubliée, la phénoménologie hylétique - matérielle - dessine la tâche de l'avenir. 2 / La possibilité de connaître la vie invisible donne son sens au problème de la méthode phénoménologique et exige que celle-ci soit repensée entièrement. 3 / La relation à autrui change elle-même de nature si, avant de pouvoir être reconnue au milieu du monde, elle prend corps dans la vie où naissent tous les vivants, l'autre aussi bien que moi-même - si elle est un "pathos-avec". - Michel Henry
