On the advantages and disadvantages of ethics and politics by Charles E Scott( )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2,419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his challenging new book, Charles E. Scott examines the paradox that our ethical and political ideals may perpetuate the very evils they intend to prevent. He takes as his point of departure the question of ethics: that values and their pursuit in the West often perpetuate their own worst enemies. At issue are the dangers in the structures and movements of images, values, and ways of knowing that are most intimately a part of our lives. The ethical and political dimensions we live by are called into question by virtue of their belonging to something excessive to their own identities. When this excess is ignored, we will be inclined to eliminate or dominate those values and political structures that are significantly different from our own. In this encounter with excess, Scott engages the thought of Nietzsche, Heidegger, Foucault, and Levinas on questions of responsibility, transcendence, tragedy, and self-fragmentation

Companion to Heidegger's Contributions to philosophy( )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication of the first English translation of Martin Heidegger's Beiträge zur Philosophie (Vom Ereignis) marked a significant event for Heidegger studies. Considered by scholars to be his most important work after Being and Time, Contributions to Philosophy (From Enowning) elaborates what Heidegger calls "being-historical-thinking," a project in which he undertakes to reshape what it means both to think and to be. Contributions is an indispensable book for scholars and students of Heidegger, but it is also one of his most difficult because of its aphoristic style and unusual language. In this Companion 14 eminent Heidegger scholars share strategies for reading and understanding this challenging work. Overall approaches for becoming familiar with Heidegger's unique language and thinking are included, along with detailed readings of key sections of the work. Experienced readers and those coming to the text for the first time will find the Companion an invaluable guide to this pivotal text in Heidegger's philosophical corpus
The time of memory by Charles E Scott( )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Time of Memory places emphasis on nonvoluntary memory and the mythology of memory in the context of questions that are prominent in contemporary thought. How do memories form experiences of origin and identity? How might we describe the functions of memory in thought or knowledge? Are there memories without images? How do past times become present? The book also addresses the force of mutation in the formation of memories as well as the roles of memories in experiences of ecstasy, sublimity, continuity, and discontinuity. The book engages Aristotle, Nietzsche, Foucault, Derrida, and Heidegger, as well as such mythological figures as Mnemosyne, Lethe, Dionysus, and Apollo

Interrogating the tradition : hermeneutics and the history of philosophy by Charles E Scott( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interrogating the Tradition interprets figures in the history of Western thought from a broad, "continental" perspective. Divided into three major sections - hermeneutical thought, Heidegger and the Greeks, and the question of nature in German Idealism - the question of origins is central throughout and takes various shapes, all within the context of the history of Western philosophy. Addressed are the form inquiries take into manners by which we receive our philosophical tradition, the originary force of Plato and Aristotle in the formation of philosophical interpretations of time and human life, and inceptional concepts of nature in the nineteenth century."--Jacket
