Frege : a guide for the perplexed by Edward Kanterian( )

23 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gottlob Frege (1848-1925) was one of the founders of analytical philosophy and the greatest innovator in logic since Aristotle. He introduced many influential philosophical ideas, such as the distinctions between function and argument, or between sense and reference. However, his thought is not readily accessible to the non-expert. His conception of logic, which was crucial to his grand project, the reduction of arithmetic to logic, is especially difficult to grasp. This book provides a lucid and critical introduction to Frege's logic, as he developed it in his groundbreaking first book Begriffsschrift (Conceptual Notation, 1879). It guides the reader directly to the core of Frege's philosophy and to some of the most pertinent issues in contemporary philosophy of language, mathematics and mind. This commentary explains Frege's own logical notation, allowing students to study and appreciate those aspects of his work that he valued most but are least understood today. -- Book Jacket

Ludwig Wittgenstein by Edward Kanterian( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wittgenstein is widely regarded as one of the greatest philosophers since Kant, and his work, private life and historical events intertwine in a fascinating, complex web. Edward Kanterian explores these intersections and provides a careful account of Wittgenstein's notoriously abstract philosophical works, from Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1921) to the posthumously published Philosophical Investigations (1953), making them comprehensible to general readers as well as offering new interpretations. Yet the philosopher's passions were not solely confined to theoretical musings, and this book explores Wittgenstein's immersion in art, architecture and music as well as his social position as a member of the sophisticated Viennese upper class at the beginning of the twentieth century." "His personal and professional relationships also offer insights into his thought, as he was friends with some of the the most fascinating intellectual figures of the time, among them Gottlob Frege, John Maynard Keynes, George Edward Moore, Bertrand Russell and Adolf Loos."--Jacket
Kant, God, and metaphysics : the secret thorn by Edward Kanterian( )

16 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kant is widely acknowledged as the greatest philosopher of modern times. He undertook his famous critical turn to save human freedom and morality from the challenge of determinism and materialism. Intertwined with his metaphysical interests, however, he also had theological commitments, which have received insufficient attention. He believed that man is a fallen creature and in need of?redemption?. He intended to provide a fortress protecting religious faith from the failure of rationalist metaphysics, from the atheistic strands of the Enlightenment, from the new mathematical science of nature, and from the dilemmas of Christian theology itself. Kant was an epistemologist, a philosopher of mind, a metaphysician of experience, an ethicist and a philosopher of religion. But all this was sustained by his religious faith. This book aims to recover the focal point and inner contradictions of his thought, the?secret thorn? of his metaphysics (as Heidegger once put it). It first locates Kant in the tradition of reflection on the human weakness from Luther to Hume, and then engages in a critical, but charitable, manner with Kant?s entire pre-critical work, including his posthumous fragments. Special attention is given to The Only Possible Ground (1763), one of the most difficult, interesting and underestimated of Kant?s works. The book takes its cue from an older approach to Kant, but also engages with recent Anglophone and continental scholarship, and deploys modern analytical tools to make sense of Kant

Cioran als Nihilist, Skeptiker und politischer Essayist by Edward Kanterian( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zusammenfassung: tschland. Aufsätze aus den Jahren 1931-1937. Berlin 2011. Suhrkamp Verlag. 231 S. Emil Cioran: Über Frankreich. Essay. Berlin 2010. Suhrkamp Verlag. 103 S. Jürgen Grosse: Erlaubte Zweifel. Cioran und die Philosophie. Berlin 2014. Duncker +amp; Humblot. 319 S. Emil Cioran gilt vielen als ein besonders eindeutiges Beispiel eines nihilistischen Denkers. Wie hier aufgezeigt werden soll, ist es aber nicht nur fraglich, ob der Nihilismus eine kohärente Position ist, sondern auch, ob Ciorans schillerndes und widersprüchliches Werk wirklich als das eines Nihilisten, oder auch nur eines Skeptikers, zu klassifizieren ist. Am ehesten, so scheint es, war er ein Pessimist bezüglich der Grenzen und Möglichkeiten menschlicher Zivilisation. Es wird dargelegt, dass dieser Pessimismus, von dem wir gerade heute manches wieder lernen können, seine Wurzeln in der deutschen Lebensphilosophie hat, die Cioran in seinem rumänischen Frühwerk, zu der auch eine faschistische Episode gehörte, umfassend rezipierte. Dies wird anhand der Diskussion von vier Neuerscheinungen von und über Cioran belegt
