Aesthetics and subjectivity from Kant to Nietzsche by Andrew Bowie( Book )

47 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new, completely revised and re-written edition of aesthetics and subjectivity brings up to date the original book's account of the path of German philosophy from Kant, via Fichte and Holderlin, the early Romantis, Schelling, Hegel, Schleimacher, to Nietzsche, in view of recent historical research and contemporary arguments in philosophy and theory in the humanities. The original book helped make subjectivity, aesthetics, music and language a significant part of debate in the humanity. Bowie develops the approaches to these areas in relation to new theoretical advances which bridge the divide between the continental and analytical traditions of philosophy. In light of the huge growth of interest in German philosophy as a resource for re-thinking both literary and cultural theory, and contemporary philosophy, aesthetics and subjectivity will be indispensable reading for students and teachers in all humanities subjects, from literature, to philosophy, to music and beyond
On the history of modern philosophy by Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the History of Modern Philosophy is a key transitional text in the history of European philosophy. In it, F. W. J. Schelling surveys philosophy from Descartes to German Idealism and shows why the Idealist project is ultimately doomed to failure. The lectures trace the path of philosophy from Descartes through Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant, Fichte, Jacobi, to Hegel and Schelling's own work. The extensive critiques of Hegel prefigure many of the arguments to be found in Feuerbach, Kierkegaard, Marx, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida. This is the first English translation of On the History of Modern Philosophy. In his introduction Andrew Bowie sets the work in the context of Schelling's career and clarifies its philosophical issues. The translation will be of special interest to philosophers, intellectual historians, literary theorists, and theologians
Hermeneutics and criticism and other writings by Friedrich Schleiermacher( Book )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counter The founding text of modern hermeneutics. Written by the philosopher and theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher as a method for the interpretation and textual criticism of the New Testament, it develops ideas about language and the interpretation of texts that are in many respects still unsurpassed and are becoming current in the contemporary philosophy of language. Contrary to the traditional view of Schleiermacher as a theorist of empathetic interpretation, in this text he offers a view of understanding that acknowledges both the structurally and historically determined aspects of language and the need to take account of the activity of the individual subject in the constitution of meaning. This volume offers the text in a new translation by Andrew Bowie, together with related writings on secular hermeneutics and on language, and an introduction that places the texts in the context of Schleiermacher's philosophy as a whole

"The book is clearly written, and makes complex arguments accessible without running the risk of oversimplification. It will be essential reading for students in philosophy, literature and the humanities in general and for anyone wanting to know more about the role of the German tradition within philosophy and literature as a whole."--Jacket

From romanticism to critical theory : the philosophy of German literary theory by Andrew Bowie( Book )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Romanticism to Critical Theory argues that key problems in contemporary literary theory are inseparable from the main questions of modern philosophy after Kant. In addition to offering detailed accounts, based on many untranslated texts, of major positions in German literary theory since the Romantics, this controversial new approach to literary theory makes fascinating and important links between hermeneutics, analytical philosophy and literary theory, and will be a vital point of reference for future work in these areas
Schelling and modern European philosophy : an introduction by Andrew Bowie( Book )

25 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bowie's book is the first introduction in English to present Schelling as a major European philosopher in his own right. It surveys the whole of his philosophical career, reconstructing his key arguments and relating them to current ideas
Music, philosophy, and modernity by Andrew Bowie( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern philosophers generally assume that music is a problem to which philosophy ought to offer an answer. Andrew Bowie's Music, Philosophy, and Modernity suggests, in contrast, that music might offer ways of responding to some central question in modern philosophy. Bowie looks at key philosophical approaches to music ranging from Kant, through the German Romantics and Wagner, to Wittgenstein, Heidegger, and Adorno. He uses music to re-examine many current ideas about language, subjectivity, metaphysics, truth, and ethics, and he suggests that music can show how the predominant images of language, communication, and meaning in contemporary philosophy may be lacking in essential ways. His book will be of interest to philosophers, musicologists, and all who are interested in the relation between music and philosophy."--Jacket
The subject and the text : essays on literary theory and philosophy by Manfred Frank( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adorno and the ends of philosophy by Andrew Bowie( Book )

18 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theodor Adorno’s reputation as a cultural critic has been well-established for some time, but his status as a philosopher remains unclear. In Adorno and the Ends of Philosophy Andrew Bowie seeks to establish what Adorno can contribute to philosophy today. Adorno’s published texts are notably difficult and have tended to hinder his reception by a broad philosophical audience. His main influence as a philosopher when he was alive was, though, often based on his very lucid public lectures. Drawing on these lectures
