Walter Benjamin, an aesthetic of redemption by Richard Wolin( Book )

31 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few twentieth-century thinkers have proven as influential as Walter Benjamin, the German-Jewish philosopher and cultural and literary critic. Richard Wolin's book remains among the clearest and most insightful introductions to Benjamin's writings, offering a philosophically rich exposition of his complex relationship to Adorno, Brecht, Jewish Messianism, and Western Marxism. Wolin provides nuanced interpretations of Benjamin's widely studied writings on Baudelaire, historiography, and art in the age of mechanical reproduction. In a new Introduction written especially for this edition, Wolin discusses the unfinished Arcades Project, as well as recent tendencies in the reception of Benjamin's work and the relevance of his ideas to contemporary debates about modernity and postmodernity." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/ucal041/93030241.html
Heidegger's children : Hannah Arendt, Karl Löwith, Hans Jonas, and Herbert Marcuse by Richard Wolin( Book )

34 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin Heidegger is perhaps the twentieth century's greatest philosopher, and his work stimulated much that is original and compelling in modern thought. A seductive classroom presence, he attracted Germany's brightest young intellects during the 1920s. Many were Jews, who ultimately would have to reconcile their philosophical and, often, personal commitments to Heidegger with his nefarious political views. In 1933, Heidegger cast his lot with National Socialism. He squelched the careers of Jewish students and denounced fellow professors whom he considered insufficiently radical. Fo
The seduction of unreason : the intellectual romance with fascism : from Nietzsche to postmodernism by Richard Wolin( Book )

34 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifteen years ago, revelations about the political misdeeds of Martin Heidegger and Paul de Man sent shock waves throughout European and North American intellectual circles. Ever since, postmodernism has been haunted by the specter of a compromised past. In this intellectual genealogy of the postmodern spirit, Richard Wolin shows that postmodern's infatuation with fascism has been widespread and not incidental. He calls into question postmodernism's claim to have inherited the mantle of the left - and suggests that postmodern thought has long been smitten with the opposite end of the political spectrum."--Jacket

20 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The politics of being : the political thought of Martin Heidegger by Richard Wolin( Book )

30 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over fifty years the philosophical achievements of Martin Heidegger have been haunted by a devilʼs bargain struck between the philosopher and the National Socialist movement in the early 1930s-an alliance that Heidegger himself never explicitly renounced. The Politics of Being: the Political Thought of Martin Heidegger by Richard Wolin reconstructs the delicate interrelationship between philosophy and politics and the way in which Heideggerʼs failure as a political actor influenced the recasting of his philosophy in the 1930s and 1940s. Beginning with Heideggerʼs Being and Time, Wolin argues that the philosopherʼs decision for national Socialism cannot be understood apart form the most fundamental conditions of his philosophy. Thus, Heideggerʼs involvement with National Socialism was rooted in the innermost tendencies of his thought. And although Wolin denies that Heideggerʼs Nazism was a necessary outgrowth of Being and Time, he does suggest that the politics of the Nazi movement satisfied ideal of authentic historical commitment outlined in Heideggerʼs 1927 work
Martin Heidegger and European nihilism by Karl Löwith( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a work of impressive historical depth, Lowith traces the abandonment of higher European ideals in favor of a fatal flirtation with nihilism. These essays explore the enthronement of man above God, a trend that had begun to appear in European thought by the mid-nineteenth century in the works of Nietzsche and Marx and one that informed the nihilist philosophies of Heidegger and other theorists of the early twentieth century. An introduction by editor Richard Wolin provides lucid commentary, placing the three essays gathered here in a broad historical context, along with suggestions for further reading. This seminal work of intellectual history sheds light on the fascist impulses of nihilism in the first half of the twentieth century, but also offers unique perspective on the intellectual malaise of today
