Kant and idealism by Tom Rockmore( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 1,813 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( )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,786 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
Fichte, Marx, and the German philosophical tradition by Tom Rockmore( )

11 editions published in 1980 in English and German and held by 1,757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heidegger and French philosophy : humanism, antihumanism, and being by Tom Rockmore( )

27 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and German and held by 1,567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rockmore examines the extraordinary influence this German philosopher has had on contemporary French thought. He argues that after the Second World War Heidegger became the master thinker of French philosophy and that his impact is underestimated
On Heidegger's Nazism and philosophy by Tom Rockmore( )

27 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and Japanese and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

That Martin Heidegger supported National Socialism has long been common knowledge. Yet the relation between his philosophy and political commitments remains highly contentious and recently has erupted into a vociferous debate. Boldly refuting arguments that the philosopher's political stance was accidental or adopted under coercion, Rockmore argues that Heidegger's philosophical thought and his Nazism are inseparably intertwined, that he turned to National Socialism on the basis of his philosophy, and that his later evolution is largely determined by his continuing concern with Nazism
Cognition : an introduction to Hegel's Phenomenology of spirit by Tom Rockmore( )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,413 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
Fichte, German idealism, and early romanticism by Daniel Breazeale( )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 1,377 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( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,251 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
Fichte's Vocation of man : new interpretive and critical essays by Daniel Breazeale( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kant and phenomenology by Tom Rockmore( )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 919 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
Before and after 9/11 : a philosophical examination of globalization, terror, and history by Tom Rockmore( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a philosophical analysis of the 9/11 events against the ongoing historical background. This clearly written and accessible work presents a philosopher's response to the series of events known as '9/11' and the global culture in the United States - and global society - that followed. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the emerging post-9/11 culture, situating it in a broad context that includes politics, religious discourse, economic theory, and philosophical orientation. Before and After 9/11 reconstructs the events that led to and departed from the attacks on September 11, 2001. It criticizes the attempts to explain 9/11 by George W. Bush, his administration's neoconservatives, Samuel Huntington, and Bernard Lewis. It also pays particular attention to the importance of the economic dimension in the emergence of conflicts in an age of globalization. The aim is to provide a philosophical overview of 9/11, understood as a series of connected events within an ongoing historical context
Heidegger and nazism by Víctor Farías( Book )

8 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marx after Marxism : the philosophy of Karl Marx by Tom Rockmore( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text argues that political Marxist influence obscures, transforms, distorts, and renders inaccessible Marx's basic philosophical insights. It concentrates on recovering Marx's philosophical ideas within the larger Hegelian framework
In Kant's wake : philosophy in the twentieth century by Tom Rockmore( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Japanese and held by 683 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
The Heidegger case : on philosophy and politics by T Rockmore( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 681 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.
