The American philosopher conversations with Quine, Davidson, Putnam, Nozick, Danto, Rorty, Cavell, MacIntyre, and Kuhn by Giovanna Borradori ( )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 1,889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The American Philosopher explores the opposition between analytic and continental thought and shows how recent American work has begun to bridge the gap between the two traditions. Through a reexamination of pragmatism, and through an attempt to understand philosophy in a more hermeneutical way, the participants narrow the distance between America's distinctly scientific philosophy and Europe's more literary approach. Borradori's conversations offer an unconventional portrait of the way philosophers think about their work scholars and students will not be its only beneficiaries, so will everyone who wonders about the current state of American philosophy. -- Back cover
Philosophy in a time of terror : dialogues with Jürgen Habermas and Jacques Derrida by Jürgen Habermas ( Book )
18 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The idea for Philosophy in a Time of Terror was born hours after the terrorist attacks on 9/11 and came to realization just weeks later when Giovanna Borradori sat down with Jurgen Habermas and Jacques Derrida, in separate interviews, in New York City. Habermas and Derrida, guided by Borradori, evaluate the significance of the most destructive terrorist attack ever perpetrated. The book marks an unprecedented encounter between two of the most influential thinkers of our age: here for the first time Habermas and Derrida overcome their historical antagonism and agree to appear side by side." "In her introduction, Borradori contends that philosophy has an invaluable contribution to make to the understanding of terrorism. Just as the traumas produced by colonialism, totalitarianism, and the Holocaust wrote the history of the twentieth century, the history of the twenty-first century is already signed by global terrorism. Each dialogue here, accompanied by a critical essay, recognizes the magnitude of this upcoming challenge. Characteristically, Habermas's dialogue is dense, compact, and elegantly traditional. Derrida's, on the other hand, takes the reader on a long, winding, and unpredictable road. Yet unexpected agreements emerge between them: both have a deep suspicion of the concept of "terrorism" and both see the need for a transition from classical international law, premised on the model of nation-states, to a new cosmopolitan order based on continental alliances." "As Derrida and Habermas disassemble and reassemble what we think we know about terrorism, they break from the familiar social and political rhetoric increasingly polarized between good and evil. In this process, we watch two of the greatest philosophical minds at work."--BOOK JACKET
Islam and the West : a conversation with Jacques Derrida by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the spring of 2003, Jacques Derrida sat down for a public debate in Paris with Algerian intellectual Mustapha Cherif. The eminent philosopher arrived at the event directly from the hospital where he had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the illness that would take his life just over a year later. That he still participated in the exchange testifies to the magnitude of the subject at hand: the increasingly distressed relationship between Islam and the West, and the questions of freedom, justice, and democracy that surround it." "As Cherif relates in this account of their dialogue, the topic of Islam held special resonance for Derrida - perhaps it is to be expected that near the end of his life his thoughts would return to Algeria, the country where he was born in 1930. Indeed, these roots served as the impetus for their conversation, which first centers on the ways in which Derrida's Algerian-Jewish identity has shaped his thinking. From there, the two men move to broader questions of secularism and democracy; to politics and religion and how the former manipulates the latter; and to the parallels between xenophobia in the West and fanaticism among Islamists." "Ultimately, the discussion is an attempt to tear down the notion that Islam and the West are two civilizations locked in a bitter struggle for supremacy and to reconsider them as the two shores of the Mediterranean - two halves of the same geographical, religious, and cultural sphere. Islam and the West is a crucial opportunity to further our understanding of Derrida's views on the key political and religious divisions of our time an often moving testament to the power of friendship and solidarity to surmount them."--BOOK JACKET

Philosophie in Zeiten des Terrors by Giovanna Borradori ( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in German and Spanish and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nach den Anschlägen des 11. Septembers hat Giovanna Borradori Jürgen Habermas und Jacques Derrida in den USA befragt. Die bedeutendsten Protagonisten der zeitgenössischen deutschen und französischen Philosophie reflektieren über den Begriff des Terrorismus, über die Tauglichkeit von Dialogmodellen auf interkultureller Ebene und die Durchschlagskraft des internationalen Rechts. Jenseits inhaltlicher und stilistischer Differenzen überraschen die beiden Philosophen durch Einigkeit: in ihrem Votum für Aufklärung, in ihrem Eintreten für Demokratie und ihrem entschiedenen Plädoyer für den Ausbau internationaler Rechtsinstitutionen, und sie nehmen die Gelegenheit wahr, die Rolle des Intellektuellen in einer Zeit, die von Terror und Ungewißheit bestimmt ist, von Grund auf neu zu überdenken
