On Heidegger's Nazism and philosophy by Tom Rockmore( Book )

26 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and Japanese and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After developing a framework that clearly outlines the interrelation of Nazism and Heidegger's philosophy, Rockmore analyzes the famous rectoral address the philosopher delivered in 1933 upon becoming rector of the University of Freiburg. In that speech Heidegger sought to ground politics in philosophy. Rockmore examines the inseparable relation of politics and philosophy in Heidegger's Being and Time, the recently published Contributions to Philosophy (written from 1936 to 1938), and the interpretations of Holderlin, Nietzsche, and technology. In his conclusion Rockmore considers the ongoing discussion of Heidegger's thought and Nazism in France. Combining extensive documentation of the Heidegger controversy with philosophical and historical analysis, this book raises profound questions about the social and political responsibility of philosophy. Includes information on Heideggerʼs view of being, fundamental ontology, Adolf Hitler, Karl Jaspers, Ernst Junger, Immanuel Kant, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, Letter on Humanism, Karl Lowith, Georg Lukacs, Hugo Ott, Plato, Platonism, Heideggerʼs view of poetry, racism, Heideggerʼs view of technology, Heideggerʼs concept of truth, concept of Volk, Volk ideology, Weimar Republic, Heideggerʼs opposition to Weltanschauungsphilosophie, etc

The Heidegger case : on philosophy and politics by Tom Rockmore( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relation between Martin Heidegger's philosophical thought and his political commitment has been widely discussed in recent years, following the publication of Victor Farías's controversial study, Heidegger and Nazism, published in this country by Temple University Press. The Heidegger Case is a collection of original essays, by both American and European philosophers, on issues raised by Heidegger's involvement with the Nazis. The contributors consider such matters as the relationship between Heidegger's philosophical theories and his public statements and activities, the ways in which his ideas on social and political life compare with those of other philosophers, and the role of philosophy with respect to politics

In Kant's wake : philosophy in the twentieth century by Tom Rockmore( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the vantage point of a new century, twentieth-century philosophy in the Western world can be grouped according to four main trends: Marxism, Anglo-American analytic philosophy, American pragmatism, and continental philosophy. Rockmore evaluates the different strands of these discussions and analyzes their origins, arguing that they all evolved in reaction to Kant's fascinating and demanding philosophy

Cognition : an introduction to Hegel's Phenomenology of spirit by Tom Rockmore( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this companion volume to his general introduction to Hegel, Tom Rockmore offers a passage-by-passage guide to the Phenomenology for first-time readers of the book and others who are not Hegel specialists. Rockmore demonstrates that Hegel's concepts of spirit, consciousness, and reason can be treated as elements of a single, coherent theory of knowledge, one that remains strikingly relevant for the contemporary discussion. He shows how the various conceptions of cognition developed in the text culminate in absolute knowing, which Rockmore reads, in opposition to the frequent religious readings of Hegel, in a wholly secular manner
Kant and idealism by Tom Rockmore( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tom Rockmore examines one of the great lacunae of contemporary philosophical discussion - idealism. Addressing the widespread confusion about the meaning and use of the term, he surveys and classifies some of its major forms, giving particular attention to Kant. He argues that Kant provides the all-important link between three main types of idealism: those associated with Plato, the new way of ideas, and German idealism. The author also makes a case for the contemporary relevance of at least one strand in the tangled idealist web, a strand most clearly identified with Kant: constructivism. In terms of the philosophical tradition, Rockmore contends, constructivism offers a lively, interesting, and important approach to knowledge after the decline of metaphysical realism."--Jacket
Hegel, idealism, and analytic philosophy by Tom Rockmore( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"According to Rockmore, the first generation of British analytic philosophers to engage Hegel possessed a limited understanding of his philosophy and of idealism. Succeeding generations continued to misinterpret him, and recent analytic thinkers have turned Hegel into a pragmatist by ignoring his idealism. Rockmore explains why this has happened, defends Hegel's idealism, and points out the ways Hegel is a key figure for analytic concerns, focusing on the fact that he and analytic philosophers both share an interest in the problem of knowledge."--Jacket
Kant and phenomenology by Tom Rockmore( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phenomenology, together with Marxism, pragmatism, and analytic philosophy, dominated philosophy in the twentieth century--and Edmund Husserl is usually thought to have been the first to develop the concept. His views influenced a variety of important later thinkers, such as Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty, who eventually turned phenomenology away from questions of knowledge. But in this significant new work, Tom Rockmore argues for a return to phenomenology's origins in epistemology and does so by locating its roots in the work of Immanuel Kant. Kant and Phenomenology traces the formulation of Kant
Antifoundationalism old and new by Tom Rockmore( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The debate over foundationalism, the viewpoint that there exists some secure foundation upon which to build a system of knowledge, appears to have been resolved and the antifoundationalists have at least temporarily prevailed. From a firmly historical approach, the book traces the foundationalism/antifoundationalism controversy in the work of many important figures--Animaxander, Aristotle and Plato, Augustine, Descartes, Hegel and Nietzsche, Habermas and Chisholm, and others--throughout the history of philosophy. The contributors, Joseph Margolis, Ronald Polansky, Gary Calore, Fred and Emily Michael, William Wurzer, Charlene Haddock Siegfried, Sandra B. Rosenthal, Kathleen Wallace, and the editors present well the diversity, interest, and roots of antifoundationalism

Fichte, German idealism, and early romanticism by Daniel Breazeale( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of 23 previously unpublished essays explores the relationship between the philosophy of J.G. Fichte and that of other leading thinkers associated with German Idealism and the early Romantic movement. Several papers explore the broader question of Fichte's relationship and contribution to "German idealism" and "German romanticism" in general, while others offer comparative studies of the relationship between Fichte's writings and those of Leibniz, Kant, Schelling, Hegel, Friedrich Schlegel, Novalis, Schleiermacher, and Wilhelm von Humboldt. Taken collectively, this set of essays
Fichte and the phenomenological tradition by Violetta L Waibel( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of previously unpublished papers dealing with the neglected "phenomenological" dimension of the philosophy of Johann Gottlieb Fichte, which it compares and contrasts to the phenomenology of his contemporary Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and to those of Edmund Husserl and his 20th century followers. Issues discussed include a comparision of the early phenomenological method in Fichte and Hegel with the classical phenomenological method in Husserl, Heidegger and Sartre, as well as special topics, namely the problem of self-consciousness and intersubjectivity, very important in Fichte's trancendental philosophy of the Wissenschaftslehre but discussed as well in 20th century phenomenology. Fichte can be said to have invented the theory of intersubjectivity that was first developed by Hegel and then by Husserl, Sartre or Ricœur. Fichte can also be said to have in fact promoted a theory of intentionality based on tendencies, drives, purposes and will, that got a modern shape and language by Husserl and his followers. And even the deduction of the human body in Fichte's practical parts of the Wissenschaftslehre prepares the path for modern twentieth century theories of body, feeling and mind
