Spinoza's modernity : Mendelssohn, Lessing, and Heine by Willi Goetschel( )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spinoza's Modernity is a major, original work that reconstructs a key moment in the European Enlightenment and offers a ground-breaking reading of the intersection of German literature and philosophy in the latter half of the eighteenth century. Willi Goetschel reassesses the philosophical project of Baruch Spinoza, uncovers his influence on later thinkers, and demonstrates how that crucial influence on Moses Mendelssohn, G.E. Lessing, and Heinrich Heine shaped the development of modern critical thought."--Jacket

Heine and critical theory by Willi Goetschel( Book )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heinrich Heine's role in the formation of Critical Theory has been systematically overlooked in the course of the successful appropriation of his thought by Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, and the legacy they left, in particular for Adorno, Benjamin and the Frankfurt School. This book examines the critical connections that led Adorno to call for a "reappraisal" of Heine in a 1948 essay that, published posthumously, remains under-examined. Tracing Heine's Jewish difference and its liberating comedy of irreverence in the thought of the Frankfurt School, the book situates the project of Critical Theory in the tradition of a praxis of critique, which Heine elevates to the art of public controversy. Heine's bold linking of aesthetics and political concerns anticipates the critical paradigm assumed by Benjamin and Adorno. Reading Critical Theory with Heine recovers a forgotten voice that has theoretically critical significance for the formation of the Frankfurt School. With Heine, the project of Critical Theory can be understood as the sustained effort to advance the emancipation of the affects and the senses, at the heart of a theoretical vision that recognizes pleasure as the liberating force in the fight for freedom

The legacy of German Jewry by Hermann Levin Goldschmidt( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in German and English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1957, The Legacy of German Jewry is a comprehensive rethinking of the German-Jewish experience. Goldschmidt challenges the elegiac view of Gershom Scholem, showing us the German-Jewish legacy in literature, philosophy, and critical thought in a new light." "Part One reexamines the breakthrough to modernity, tracing the moves of thinkers like Moses Mendelssohn, building on the legacies of religious figures like the Baal Shem Tov and radical philosophers such as Spinoza. This vision of modernity, Goldschmidt shows, rested upon a belief that "remnants" of the radical past could provide ideas and energy for reconceiving the modern world. Goldschmidt's philosophy of the remnant animates Part Two as well, where his account of the political history of the Jews in modernity and the riches of Jewish culture as recast in German-Jewish thought provide insights into Leo Baeck, Hermann Cohen, and Franz Rosenzweig, among others. Part Three analyzes the post-Auschwitz complex, and uses the Book of Job to break through that trauma."--Jacket
