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

22 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,158 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
The philosopher's gaze : modernity in the shadows of enlightenment by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 2,031 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
Modernity and the hegemony of vision by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 1,815 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 opening of vision : nihilism and the postmodern situation by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( )

21 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,766 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. He demonstrates that the sufferings, needs and injustices of our world are connected to a mode of vision determined by the patriarchal will to power. He emphasizes that vision is a capacity, a gift of nature which can be developed by self-awareness; and he brings out for further development the rich affective, moral and spiritual potential inherent in our experience with vision
Before the voice of reason : echoes of responsibility in Merleau-Ponty's Ecology and Levinas's Ethics by David Michael Kleinberg-Levin( )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 954 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 199 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

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contributors from a variety of disciplines provide a critical context for the relationship between feminist pedagogy and academic feminism by exploring the complex ways that critical perspectives can be brought into the classroom. This book discusses the processes employed to engage learners by challenging them to ask tough questions and craft complex answers, wrestle with timely problems and posit innovative solutions, and grapple with ethical dilemmas for which they seek just resolutions. Diverse experiences, interests, and perspectives--together with the various teaching and learning styles that participants bring to twenty-first-century universities--necessitate inventive and evolving pedagogical approaches, and these are explored from a critical perspective. The contributors collectively consider the implications of the theory/practice divide, which remains central within academic feminism's role as both a site of social and gender justice and as a part of the academy, and map out some of the ways in which academic feminism is located within the academy today."--Publisher's description
