Modernity and the hegemony of vision by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of original essays by many of today's preeminent interpreters of Continental philosophy explores the question of whether Western thought and culture have been dominated by a vision-centered paradigm of knowledge, ethics, and power. It focuses on the character of vision in modern philosophy and on arguments for and against the view that contemporary life and thought are distinctively "ocularcentric."" "Can it be argued that in the period we call modernity this ocularcentrism has assumed a distinctively "modern" historical form? What remains today of the rational vision of the Enlightenment? How does vision figure in the methodology of the social sciences - in its hermeneutics of positions, perspectives, and horizons? Is visualism implicated in the problematics of relativism? In what sense is vision complicit with the exercise of power or the practice of a dangerous politics?" "The authors examine these ideas in the context of the history of philosophy and consider the character of visual discourse in the writings of Plato, Descartes, Hegel, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Benjamin, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, Derrida, Foucault, Gadamer, Wittgenstein, and Habermas. Ranging from the philosophical canon to such cultural oblects as television and the paintings of Manet, their essays provide an excellent guide to the many debates around ocularcentrism." "All the chapters are previously unpublished except for Hans Blumenberg's classic 1954 essay, "Light as a Metaphor for Truth," included here in its first English translation. Of equal interest to philosophers, intellectual historians, and readers in cultural and gender studies, Modernity and the Hegemony of Vision will surely generate discussion and controversy among all concerned with the meaning of vision in the modern world."--Jacket

The philosopher's gaze : modernity in the shadows of enlightenment by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Levin's view, all these philosophers attempted to understand, one way or another, the distinctive pathologies of the modern age. But every one also attempted to envision - if only through the faintest of traces, traces of mutual recognition, traces of another way of looking and seeing - the prospects for a radically different lifeworld."--Jacket
The body's recollection of being : phenomenological psychology and the deconstruction of nihilism by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( Book )

14 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a unique study, contuining the work of Merleau-Ponty and Heidegger, and using the techniques of phenomenology against the prevailing nihilism of our culture. It expands our understanding of the human potential for spiritual self-realization by interpreting it as the developing of a bodily-felt awareness informing our gestures and movements. The author argues that a psychological focus on our experience of well-being and pathology as embodied beings contributes significantly to a historically relevant critique of ideology. It also provides an essential touchstone in experience for a fruitful individual and collective response to the danger of nihilism. Dr Levin draws on Merleau-Ponty's phenomenology to clarify Heidegger's analytic of human beings through an interpretation that focuses on our experience of being embodied. He reconstructs in modern terms the wisdom implicit in western and semitic forms of religion and philosophy, considering the work of Freud, Jung, Focault and Neitzsche, as well as that of American educational philosophers, including Dewey.; In particular, he draws on the psychology of Freud and Jung to clarify our historical experience of gesture and movement and to bring to light its potential in the fulfilment of Selfhood. Throughout the book, the pathologies of the ego and its journey into Selfhood are considered in relation to the conditons of technology and the powers of nihilism
The opening of vision : nihilism and the postmodern situation by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( Book )

18 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nietzsche and Heidegger saw in modernity a time endangered by nihilism. Starting out from this interpretation, David Levin links the nihilism raging today in Western society and culture to our concrete historical experience with vision
Sites of vision : the discursive construction of sight in the history of philosophy by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central role of vision in relation to philosophy is evident in the vocabulary of the discipline - in words such as "speculation," "observation," "insight," and "reflection"; in metaphors such as "mirroring," "perspective," and "point of view"; and in methodological concepts such as "reflective detachment" and "representation." Because the history of vision is so pervasively reflected in the history of philosophy, it is possible for both vision and thought to achieve a greater awareness of their genealogy through the history of philosophy. The fourteen contributors to Sites of Vision explore the hypothesis that the nature of visual perception about which philosophers talk must be explicitly recognized as a discursive construction, indeed a historical construction, in philosophical discourse

Beckett's words : the promise of happiness in a time of mourning by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At stake in this book is a struggle with language in a time when our old faith in the redeeming of the word-and the word's power to redeem-has almost been destroyed. Drawing on Benjamin's political theology, his interpretation of the German Baroque mourning play, and Adorno's critical aesthetic theory, but also on the thought of poets and many other philosophers, especially Hegel's phenomenology of spirit, Nietzsche's analysis of nihilism, and Derrida's writings on language, Kleinberg-Levin shows how, because of its communicative and revelatory powers, language bears the utopian ""promise of h
