Powers of the rational : science, technology, and the future of thought by Dominique Janicaud( )

18 editions published between 1985 and 1994 in French and English and held by 1,974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why has science placed itself almost exclusively in the service of power? Can the rational avoid being appropriated by a kind of "hyperpower"? Do other possibilities exist for the future of thought? Dominique Janicaud addresses the menacing explosion of power in contemporary life. Starting with a critical reflection upon the origins of the rational, he combines a phenomenology of power with a genealogy of rationality to investigate the role of rationality in linking science and technology to power. Motivated by Heidegger's critique of technology, Janicaud broadens the interrogation by critically engaging with such thinkers as Weber, Habermas, and Adorno. The book sheds new light not only on Heidegger's own work but also on its relationship with the phenomenological past and its contemporary competitors - the Frankfurt school, post-structuralism, and contemporary analytic philosophy
Heidegger from metaphysics to thought by Dominique Janicaud( )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 1,573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philosophy has come to an end" claimed Heidegger in the final posthumous interview he granted to Der Spiegel. The goal of Janicaud's chapters ("Overcoming Metaphysics?," "Heideggeriana," "Metamorphosis of the Undecidable," and the dialogue "Heidegger in New York") first of all is to clarify the project of "overcoming" metaphysics, a project that Heidegger himself recognized as open to innumerable misunderstandings. Is it really possible to surmount metaphysics, not by transgressing it, but by means of a patient elucidation of its key concepts? In the effort to underscore the originality of his own enterprise, doesn't Heidegger tend to project too harsh a dichotomy between the forgetfulness of Being and its authentic recollection? By raising these questions, Janicaud suggests that Heidegger himself does not elude the objections that he directs toward the great metaphysical thinkers. The final recourse to dialogue in the midst of twentieth-century New York - a landscape intentionally "different" from one expectedly Heideggerian - intends to hint at another possibility than the indefinite deconstruction of metaphysical texts. It suggests new ways for thoughtful meditation and a new cast for action. At the center of the book, Mattei evokes the "Heideggerian Chiasmus or the Setting-apart of Philosophy." Through an inquiry into the major Heideggerian texts produced between 1935 and 1969 and inspired by Holderlin's poetry, Mattei gradually detects the cosmic figure of the Geviert, the initial Fourfold where "earth and sky, the divine ones and the mortals" gather. Such a community, whose meaning Heidegger is the only one to decipher in our times, silently conforms to what is truly the archaic path to philosophy. The cosmic game of the Geviert also evokes, for Heidegger, the path of the Tao in the Chinese tradition. In this epoch characterized by the destruction of ontology, the two paths in which East and West meet may grant us moderns the hope one day of "dwelling" in the world
Heidegger in France by Dominique Janicaud( )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in French and English and held by 1,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dominique Janicaud claimed that every French intellectual movement--from existentialism to psychoanalysis--was influenced by Martin Heidegger. This translation of Janicaud's landmark work, Heidegger en France, details Heidegger's reception in philosophy and other humanistic and social science disciplines. Interviews with key French thinkers such as Françoise Dastur, Jacques Derrida, Éliane Escoubas, Jean Greisch, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, Jean-Luc Marion, and Jean-Luc Nancy are included and provide further reflection on Heidegger's relationship to French philosophy. An intellectual undertaking of authoritative scope, this work furnishes a thorough history of the French reception of Heidegger's thought.--Publisher website
Phenomenology "wide open" : after the French debate by Dominique Janicaud( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 1,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dominique Janicaud advises us to consider a "minimalist" approach to these questions, one that would leave phenomenology open to its greatest possibilities. We must consider the scientific and metaphysical overinvestment of phenomenology. Yet we must also imagine how phenomenology might finally escape this unifying and foundational tendency, which has driven it to overburden immanence with a transcendence that is none other than that of subjectivity in its various guises and at its various levels."--Jacket

On the human condition by Dominique Janicaud( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and French and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A reflection on where the idea of the human stands today. Janicaud argues that whilst we need to avoid apocalyptic talk of a posthuman condition, as embodied in technology such as cloning, we should neither fall back on a conservative humanism nor become technophobic. He urges us to acknowledge that the real danger facing humanity is not the superhuman but the inhuman

The shadow of that thought : Heidegger and the question of politics by Dominique Janicaud( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The debate on Heidegger's turning toward National Socialism that began in the 1940s returned in force with the publication of Victor Farias's Heidegger et le nazisme in 1987. The original debate has spread throughout Europe and across the Atlantic Ocean, and a number of books have appeared in response to the debate and to Farias's study itself. Janicaud draws a firm connection between Heidegger's philosophical position and his political engagement. He thus goes beyond those writers who attempt to handle the issue of Heidegger's Nazism simply on the level of his personal political judgment, in isolation from his philosophy, by attempting to distinguish rigorously between Heidegger the thinker and Heidegger the man. Janicaud's calm rejection of this approach, his refusal to salvage the philosopher from the wreck of the man, is a truly original contribution to this complex and emotional debate
