Heidegger's topology : being, place, world by Jeff Malpas( )

27 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This groundbreaking inquiry into the centrality of place in Martin Heidegger's thinking offers not only an illuminating reading of Heidegger's thought but a detailed investigation into the way in which the concept of place relates to core philosophical issues. In Heidegger's Topology, Jeff Malpas argues that an engagement with place, explicit in Heidegger's later work, informs Heidegger's thought as a whole. What guides Heidegger's thinking, Malpas writes, is a conception of philosophy's starting point: our finding ourselves already "there," situated in the world, in "place." Heidegger's concepts of being and place, he argues, are inextricably bound together. Malpas follows the development of Heidegger's topology through three stages: the early period of the 1910s and 1920s, through Being and Time, centered on the "meaning of being"; the middle period of the 1930s into the 1940s, centered on the "truth of being"; and the late period from the mid-1940s on, when the "place of being" comes to the fore. (Malpas also challenges the widely repeated arguments that link Heidegger's notions of place and belonging to his entanglement with Nazism.) The significance of Heidegger as a thinker of place, Malpas claims, lies not only in Heidegger's own investigations but also in the way that spatial and topographic thinking has flowed from Heidegger's work into that of other key thinkers of the past 60 years."--Publisher's website
Place and experience : a philosophical topography by Jeff Malpas( )

27 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and held by 1,591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a range of sources from Proust and Wordsworth to Davidson, Strawson and Heidegger, he argues that the significance of place is not to be found in our experience of place so much as in the grounding of experience in place, and that this binding to place is not a contingent feature of human existence, but derives from the very nature of human thought, experience and identity as established in and through place
From Kant to Davidson : philosophy and the idea of the transcendental by Jeff Malpas( )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 1,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent philosophy has seen the idea of the transcendental, first introduced in its modern form in the work of Kant, take on a new prominence. Bringing together an international range of younger philosophers and established thinkers, this volume opens up the idea of the transcendental, examining it not merely as a mode of argument, but as naming a particular problematic and a philosophical style. From contemporary rethinkings of the Kantian project through to the holistic, externalist inquiries of Donald Davidson, transcendental styles of reasoning and the broader framework of transcendental inquiry have come to play an important role in the work of a number of philosophers. Beginning with Kant, the contributions in this volume explore the idea of the transcendental in its original historical context, as well as its more recent appearance in relation to Heidegger, Husserl, Apel, Derrida, Chomsky, McDowell, and Davidson. As well as providing insight into the idea of the transcendental, the book also offers new approaches to the work of many of these thinkers.; With contributions engaging with both analytic and continental approaches, this book will be of essential interest to philosophers and philosophy students interested in the idea of the transcendental and the part that it plays in modern and contemporary philosophy

Heidegger, authenticity, and modernity( )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In keeping with Dreyfus's openness to others' ideas, many of the essays in this volume take the form of arguments with various of his positions.

Transcendental Heidegger by Steven Galt Crowell( )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thirteen essays in this volume represent the most sustained investigation, in any language, of the connections between Heidegger's thought and the tradition of transcendental philosophy inaugurated by Kant. This collection examines Heidegger's stand on central themes of transcendental philosophy: subjectivity, judgment, intentionality, truth, practice, and idealism. Several essays in the volume also explore hitherto hidden connections between Heidegger's later "post-metaphysical" thinking—where he develops a "topological" approach that draws as much upon poetry as upon the philosophical tradition—and the transcendental project of grasping the conditions that make experience of a meaningful world possible. This volume will interest philosophers in the continental tradition, where Heidegger's thought has long had a central role, as well as those many philosophers in the analytic tradition whose own approach to knowledge, semantics, and philosophy of mind traces its roots to Kant
Reading Heidegger's Black Notebooks 1931-1941 by Ingo Farin( )

15 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 975 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than forty years, the philosopher Martin Heidegger logged ideas and opinions in a series of notebooks, known as the "Black Notebooks" after the black oilcloth booklets into which he first transcribed his thoughts. In 2014, the notebooks from 1931-1941 were published, sparking immediate controversy. It has long been acknowledged that Heidegger was an enthusiastic supporter of the Nazi Party in the early 1930s. But the notebooks contain a number of anti-Semitic passages--often referring to the stereotype of "World Jewry"--Written even after Heidegger became disenchanted with the Nazis themselves. Reactions from the scholarly community have ranged from dismissal of the significance of these passages to claims that the anti-Semitism in them contaminates all of Heidegger's work. This volume offers the first collection of responses by Heidegger scholars to the publication of the notebooks. In essays commissioned especially for the book, the contributors offer a wide range of views, addressing not only the issues of anti-Semitism and Nazism but also the broader questions that the Black Notebooks raise"--Jacket
The intelligence of place : topographies and poetics by Jeff Malpas( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Place has become a widespread concept in contemporary work in the humanities, creative arts, and social sciences. Yet in spite of its centrality, place often remains a concept more often deployed than interrogated, and there are relatively few works that focus directly on the concept of place as such. The Intelligence of Place fills this gap, providing an exploration of place from various perspectives, encompassing anthropology, architecture, geography, media, philosophy, and the arts, and as it stands in relation to a range of other concepts. Drawing together many of the key thinkers currently writing on the topic, The Intelligence of Place offers a unique point of entry into the contemporary thinking of place - into its topographies and poetics - providing new insights into a concept crucial to understanding our world and ourselves
Perspectives on human dignity : a conversation by Jeff Malpas( )

26 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of human dignity is central to any reflection on the nature of human worth, and has become a key concept in international and national law, in medical ethics, and in much philosophical and political theory. However, the idea is a complex one that also takes on many different forms. This collection explores the idea of human dignity as it arises within these many different domains, opening up the possibility of a multidisciplinary conversation that illuminates the concept itself, as well as the idea of the human to which it stands in an essential relation. The book is not only an intri
Death and philosophy by Jeff Malpas( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thinkers such as Camus and Heidegger brought the idea of death to prominence in the twentieth century, but death as a topic has preoccupied philosophers since Greek times. This collection brings together well-known writers both from within philosophy and outside, providing a range of perspectives from the philosophical to the personal (including one account of a 'near-death experience') and the literary to the aesthetic."--BOOK JACKET. "Death and Philosophy is written with the general reader in mind. However, it will be of particular interest to philosophers, or those studying religion and theology."--Jacket
Perspectives on human suffering by Jeff Malpas( )

18 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together a range of interdisciplinary perspectives on a topic of central importance, but which has otherwise tended to be approached from within just one or another disciplinary framework. Most of the essays contained here incorporate some degree of interdisciplinarity in their own approach, but the volume nevertheless divides into three main sections: Philosophical considerations; Humanities approaches; Legal, medical, and therapeutic contexts. The volume includes essays by philosophers, medical practitioners and researchers, historians, lawyers, literary, Classical, and Judaic scholars. The essays are united by a common concern with the question of the human character of suffering, and the demands that suffering, and the recognition of suffering, make upon us

The Routledge companion to hermeneutics by Jeff Malpas( Book )

22 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hermeneutics is a major theoretical and practical form of intellectual enquiry, central not only to philosophy but many other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. With phenomenology and existentialism, it is also one of the twentieth century's most important philosophical movements and includes major thinkers such as Heidegger, Gadamer and Ricoeur. The Routledge Companion to Hermeneutics is an outstanding guide and reference source to the key philosophers, topics and themes in this exciting subject and is the first volume of its kind. Comprising over fifty chapters by a team of international contributors the Companion is divided into five parts: main figures in the hermeneutical tradition movement, including Heidegger, Gadamer and Ricoeur; main topics in hermeneutics such as language, truth, relativism and history; the engagement of hermeneutics with central disciplines such as literature, religion, race and gender, and art; hermeneutics and world philosophies including Asian, Islamic and Judaic thought; hermeneutic challenges and debates, such as critical theory, structuralism and phenomenology.--
Place and experience : a philosophical topography by Jeff Malpas( )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of Place and Experience established Jeff Malpas as one of the leading philosophers and thinkers of place and space and provided a creative and refreshing alternative to prevailing post-structuralist and postmodern theories of place. It is a foundational and ground-breaking book in its attempt to lay out a sustained and rigorous account of place and its significance. The main argument of Place and Experience has three strands: first, that human being is inextricably bound to place; second, that place encompasses subjectivity and objectivity, being reducible to neither but foundational to both; and third that place, which is distinct from, but also related to space and time, is methodologically and ontologically fundamental. The development of this argument involves considerations concerning the nature of place and its relation to space and time; the character of that mode of philosophical investigation that is oriented to place and that is referred to as 'philosophical topography'; the nature of subjectivity and objectivity as inter-related concepts that also connect with intersubjectivity; and the way place is tied to memory, identity, and the self. Malpas draws on a rich array of writers and philosophers, including Wordsworth, Kant, Proust, Heidegger and Donald Davidson. This second edition is revised throughout, including a new chapter on place and technological modernity, especially the seeming loss of place in the contemporary world, and a new Foreword by Edward Casey. It also includes a new set of additional features, such as chapter summaries, illustrations, annotated further reading, and a glossary, which make this second edition more useful to teachers and students alike
