Shipwreck with spectator : paradigm of a metaphor for existence by Hans Blumenberg( )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 1,695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through Blumenberg's seemingly inexhaustible knowledge of letters, from ancient texts through nineteenth-century reminiscences and modern speeches, we see layer upon layer revealed in the meanings humans have given to these metaphors; and in this way we begin to understand what metaphors can do that more straightforward modes of expression cannot. This edition of Shipwreck with Spectator also includes "Prospect for a Theory of Nonconceptuality," an essay that recounts the evolution of Blumenberg's ideas about metaphorology in the years following his early manifesto "Paradigms for a Metaphorology."
Paradigms for a metaphorology by Hans Blumenberg( )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What role do metaphors play in philosophical language? Are they impediments to clear thinking and clear expression, rhetorical flourishes that may well help to make philosophy more accessible to a lay audience, but that ought ideally to be eradicated in the interests of terminological exactness? Or can the images used by philosophers tell us more about the hopes and cares, attitudes and indifferences that regulate an epoch than their carefully elaborated systems of thought?

This major work by the German philosopher Hans Blumenberg is a monumental rethinking of the significance of the Copernican revolution for our understanding of modernity.

Care crosses the river by Hans Blumenberg( Book )

35 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of short meditations on various topics, Hans Blumenberg eschews academic ponderousness and writes in a genre evocative of Montaigne's Essais, Walter Benjamin's Denkbilder, or Adorno's Minima Moralia. Drawing upon an intellectual tradition that ranges from Aesop to Wittgenstein and from medieval theology to astrophysics, he works as a detective of ideas scouring the periphery of intellectual and philosophical history for clues--metaphors, gestures, anecdotes--essential to grasping human finitude. Images of shipwrecks, attempts at ordering the world, and questions of foundations are traced through the work of Goethe, Schopenhauer, Simmel, Husserl, Thomas Mann, and others. The book's reflections culminate in a rereading of the fable "Care Crosses the River" that lies at the center of Heidegger's analysis of Dasein in which the fable's elided Gnostic center is recovered: Care creates the human in its own image, as a reflection of its narcissism. - At stake throughout are two inextricable elements of Blumenberg's thought: a theory of nonconceptuality as essential to philosophizing and an exploration of culture understood as humanity's unceasing attempts to relieve itself of the weight of the absolutism of reality

Beschreibung des Menschen by Hans Blumenberg( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in German and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hans Blumenbergs Anthropologie ist eine philosophische Entdeckung ersten Ranges. Sie setzt ein mit einer einfachen, aber überaus folgenreichen These: Weil der Mensch als einziger unter den Primaten dauerhaft aufrecht steht und geht, kann er zwei Dinge besonders gut: sehen - und gesehen werden. Die Optimierung der visuellen Wahrnehmung geht einher mit dem Risiko erhöhter Visibilität. So exponiert zu sein, formt sein Weltverhältnis und macht ihn zum Virtuosen der Selbstinszenierung, aber auch der Selbstverstellung und Selbstverhüllung. Sichtbarkeit bedeutet deshalb auch: Der Mensch ist undurchsichtig - für andere wie für sich selbst. Blumenbergs überaus materialreiche Anthropologie hat ihren theoretischen roten Faden in dieser dezidiert phänomenologischen Ausrichtung
