Reading Hegel's Phenomenology by John Russon( )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Reading Hegel's Phenomenology', John Russon uses the theme of reading to clarify the methods, premises, evidence, reasoning and conclusions developed in Hegel's seminal text. His approach facilitates comparing major sections and movement of the text and demonstrates that each section stands independently on the themes of human experience
The self and its body in Hegel's Phenomenology of spirit by John Russon( )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 1,829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A major criticism of Hegel's philosophy is that it fails to comprehend the experience of the body. In this book, John Russon shows that there is in fact a philosophy of embodiment implicit in Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. Russon argues that Hegel has not only taken account of the body, but has done so in a way that integrates both modern work on embodiment and the approach to the body found in ancient Greek philosophy."--Jacket
Hegel and the tradition : essays in honour of H.S. Harris by Michael Baur( )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 1,781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) is considered a philosopher of the Tradition, both in the sense that his work is rooted in the political, artistic, religious, and philosophical traditions of European culture and in the sense that he takes up the notion of tradition as an object of philosophical investigation. This collection examines Hegel's philosophy as it bears on the meaning and relevance of tradition - historical, legal, aesthetic, religious, and philosophical. The thirteen original essays draw upon and celebrate the work of H.S. Harris, who is considered by many to be the most influential interpreter of Hegel in the English-speaking world."--Jacket
Human experience : philosophy, neurosis, and the elements of everyday life by John Russon( )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with a study of the nature of perception, embodiment, and memory, Russon investigates the formation of personality through family and social experience. He focuses on the importance of the feedback we receive from others regarding our fundamental worth as persons, and on the way this interpersonal process embeds meaning into our most basic bodily practices: eating, sleeping, sex, and so on. Russon concludes with an original interpretation of neurosis as the habits of bodily practice developed in family interactions that have become the foundation for developed interpersonal life, and proposes a theory of psychological therapy as the development of philosophical insight that responds to these neurotic compulsions."--Jacket
Perception and its development in Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology by Kirsten Jacobson( )

14 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908--1961) shifted the terrain of western philosophy when he identified the body, rather than consciousness, as the primary site of our meaningful engagement with the world. His magnum opus, The Phenomenology of Perception (1945), revolutionized work in philosophy, psychology, cognitive science and other fields. Perception and Its Development in Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology brings together essays from fifteen leading Merleau-Ponty scholars to demonstrate the continuing significance of Merleau-Ponty's analysis. Mirroring the progression found in Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Perception, the essays in this volume engage in original phenomenological research to demonstrate the dynamic development of perceptual life from perception's most foundational forms (spatiality, temporality, intentionality, etc.) to its richest articulations in political life and artistic activity. This comprehensive volume is a powerful resource for students and scholars alike studying Merleau-Ponty's philosophy and serves both as a commentary upon and companion to his The Phenomenology of Perception."--
Infinite phenomenology : the lessons of Hegel's science of experience by John Russon( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Infinite Phenomenology builds on John Russon's earlier book, Reading Hegel's Phenomenology, to offer a second reading of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. Here again, Russon writes in a lucid, engaging style and, through careful attention to the text and a subtle attunement to the existential questions that haunt human life, he demonstrates how powerfully Hegel's philosophy can speak to the basic questions of philosophy. In addition to original studies of all the major sections of the Phenomenology, Russon discusses complementary texts by Hegel, namely, the Philosophy of Spirit, the Philosophy of Right, and the Science of Logic. He concludes with an appendix that discusses the reception and appropriation of Hegel's Phenomenology in twentieth-century French philosophy. As with Russon's earlier work, Infinite Phenomenology will remain essential reading for those looking to engage Hegel's essential, yet difficult, text. --
Sites of exposure : art, politics, and the nature of experience by John Russon( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Russon draws from a broad range of art and literature to show how philosophy speaks to the most basic and important questions in our everyday lives. In Sites of Exposure, Russon grapples with how personal experiences such as growing up and confronting death combine with broader issues such as political oppression, economic exploitation, and the destruction of the natural environment to make life meaningful. His is cutting-edge philosophical work, illuminated by original and rigorous thinking that relies on cross-cultural communication and engagement with the richness of human cultural history. These probing interpretations of the nature of phenomenology, the philosophy of art, history, and politics, are appropriate for students and scholars of philosophy at all levels

Bearing witness to epiphany : persons, things, and the nature of erotic life by John Russon( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this probing sequel to the popular and award-winning Human Experience, John Russon asks, "What is it to be a person?" The answer: the key in our humanity lies in our sexuality, where we experience the freedom to shape identities creatively in cooperation with another. With grace and philosophical rigor, Russon shows that an exploration of sexuality not only illuminates the psychological dimensions of our interpersonal lives but also provides the basis for a new approach to ethics and politics. Responsibilities toward others, he contends, develop alongside our personal growth. Bearing Witness in Epiphany brings to light the essential relationship between ethical and political bonds and the development of our powers of expression, leading to a substantial study of the nature and role of art in human life."--Jacket

A study of dialectic in Plato's Parmenides by Eric Sanday( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Eric Sanday boldly demonstrates that Plato’s “theory of forms” is true, easy to understand, and relatively intuitive. Sanday argues that our chief obstacle to understanding the theory of forms is the distorting effect of the tacit metaphysical privileging of individual things in our everyday understanding. For Plato, this privileging of things that we can own, produce, exchange, and through which we gain mastery of our surroundings is a significant obstacle to philosophical education. The dialogue’s chief philosophical work, then, is to destabilize this false privileging and, in Parmenides, to provide the initial framework for a newly oriented account of participation. Once we do this, Sanday argues, we more easily can grasp and see the truth of the theory of forms

Phenomenology and the arts( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Phenomenology and the arts develops the interplay between phenomenology as a historical movement and a descriptive method within Continental philosophy and the arts. Divided into five themes, this book explores first how the phenomenological method itself is a kind of artistic endeavor that mirrors what it approaches when it turns to describe paintings, dramas, literature, and music. From there, it turns to an analysis and commentary on specific work of art within the visual arts, literature, music, and sculpture. Contributors analyze important historical figures in phenomenology - Kant, Hegel, Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty. But there is also a good deal of work on art itself - Warhol, Klee, jazz, and contemporary and Renaissance artists and artworks. Edited by Peter R. Costello and Licia Carlson, this book will be of interest to students in philosophy, the arts, and the humanities in general, and scholars of phenomenology will notice incredibly rich, groundbreaking research that helps to resituate canonical figures in phenomenology with respect to what their works can be used to describe
