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

19 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 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 "All the chapters are previously unpublished except for Hans Blumenberg's classic 1954 essay, "Light as a Metaphor for Truth," included here in its first English translation.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 )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Michael Levin's ongoing exploration of the moral character and enlightenment-potential of vision takes a new direction in The Philosopher's Gaze. Levin examines texts by Descartes, Husserl, Wittgenstein, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Benjamin, Merleau-Ponty, and Levinas, using our culturally dominant mode of perception and the philosophical discourse it has generated as the site for his critical reflections on the moral culture in which we are living."--Jacket
The body's recollection of being : phenomenological psychology and the deconstruction of nihilism by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( Book )

16 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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.

20 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sites of vision : the discursive construction of sight in the history of philosophy by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( Book )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years scholars from many disciplines have become interested in the "construction" of the human senses - in how the human environment shapes both how and what we perceive. Taking a very different approach to the question of construction, Sites of Vision turns to language and explores the ways in which the rhetoric of philosophy has formed the nature of vision and how, in turn, the rhetoric of vision has helped to shape philosophical thought

Redeeming words : language and the promise of happiness in the stories of Döblin and Sebald by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this probing look at Alfred Döblin{u2019}s 1929 novel Berlin Alexanderplatz and the stories of W. G. Sebald, Redeeming Words offers a philosophical meditation on the power of language in literature. David Kleinberg-Levin draws on the critical theory of Benjamin and Adorno; the idealism and romanticism of Kant, Hegel, Hölderlin, Novalis, and Schelling; and the nineteenth- and twentieth-century thought of Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida. He shows how Döblin and Sebald{u2014}writers with radically different styles working in different historical moments{u2014}have in common a struggle against forces of negativity and an aim to bring about in response a certain redemption of language. Kleinberg-Levin considers the fast-paced, staccato, and hard-cut sentences of Döblin and the ghostly, languorous, and melancholy prose fiction of Sebald to articulate how both writers use language in an attempt to recover and convey this utopian promise of happiness for life in a time of mourning. -- From publisher's website

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

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 130 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
