Heidegger on being and acting : from principles to anarchy by Reiner Schürmann( Book )

44 editions published between 1981 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Par une lecture à rebours de l'oeuvre de Martin Heidegger, Reiner Schürmann vise à mettre au jour ce qu'il identifie comme son impensé : le principe d'anarchie. Affirmant que le projet de destruction de l'ontologie annoncé dans Être et temps n'est pleinement intelligible qu'à partir des derniers jalons de cette pensée, Schürmann fait ainsi apparaître ce que Heidegger n'avait pu expliciter lui-même. Selon lui, la question de l'être telle qu'elle est posée par le philosophe de Fribourg est indissociable de celle de l'agir. Déconstruisant la métaphysique occidentale, Heidegger aurait ainsi sapé toute possibilité de donner une arché à l'action humaine. Le paradoxe d'un principe d'anarchie, principe de «dépérissement de la règle», est aux yeux de Schürmann ce qui permet de penser l'ambiguïté de la transition opérée par Heidegger

Origins by Reiner Schürmann( Book )

17 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his only literary work, Les Origines, which was awarded the Broquette-Gonin Prize by the Académie Française in 1977, he provides an autobiographical account of a pilgrimage of errancy, a search for redemption from the inauthentic throwness of a past filled with memories of guilt and despair, of being born German during World War II, "too late to see the war, too early to forget it."
Wandering joy : Meister Eckhart's, mystical philosophy by Eckhart( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book shows the seminal Western mystic Meister Eckhart as the great teacher of the birth of God in the soul. It is at once an exposition of Eckhart's mysticism - perhaps the best in English - and also an exemplary work of contemporary philosophy. Shurmann shows us that Eckhart is our contemporary. Writing from experience, he describes the threefold movement of detachment, releasement, and "dehiscence" (splitting open) that leads to the experience of "living without a why" in which all things are in God and which is sheer joy. Going beyond that, he describes the transformational force of approaching the Godhead, the God beyond God."--Back cover
Tomorrow the manifold : essays on Foucault, anarchy, and the singularization to come by Reiner Schürmann( Book )

11 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection assembles key essays of Reiner Schürmann centering on the concepts of anarchy and the singularization to come. Setting out from the question of the status of practical philosophy at the end of metaphysics, these texts track the crucial role of Schürmann's engagement with the work of Michel Foucault between 1983 and 1991. Drawing on his highly original reading of the philosophical tradition, Schürmann traces the status of identity and difference in Foucault's conception of history to develop a radical phenomenological understanding of anarchy. The texts pose the question of the fate of philosophy after the critique of the subject and the collapse of the divide between theory and praxis, philosophy and politics. Besides making Schürmann's seminal readings of Foucault widely available, the essay collection offers a concise and accessible introduction to Schürmann's thought and documents a shift in his thinking during the 1980s. Taken together, these pivotal essays introduce the reader to the entirety of Schürmann's most urgent concerns and assemble the conceptual tools for the project of his last book, Broken Hegemonies. This topology of broken hegemonies, which in many ways offers an alternative to Foucault's genealogical strategy, takes the form of a subversive re-reading of the history of Western metaphysics that urges our present relentlessly toward the singularization to come. To the reader unfamiliar with Schürmann's work, these texts establish him as one of the most radical thinkers of the late 20th century, whose work might eventually become legible in our present
Neo-Aristotelianism and the Medieval Renaissance : on Aquinas, Ockham, and Eckhart : lecture notes for courses at the New School for Social Research, Spring 1978/Spring 1991 by Reiner Schürmann( )

8 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this lecture course, Reiner Schürmann develops the idea that, in between the spiritual Carolingian Renaissance and the secular Humanist Renaissance, there was a distinctive Medieval Renaissance connected with the rediscovery of Aristotle. Focusing on Thomas Aquinas' ontology and epistemology, William of Ockham's conceptualism, and Meister Eckhart's speculative mysticism, Schürmann shows how thought began to break free from religion and the hierarchies of the feudal, neo-Platonic order and to devote its attention to otherness and singularity. A crucial supplement to Schürmann's magnum opus Broken Hegemonies, this volume will be essential reading for anyone interested in the rise and fall of Western principles, and thus in how to think and act today."
The philosophy of Nietzsche by Reiner Schürmann( )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nietzsche praised Kant for having?annihilated Socratism,? for exhibiting all ideals as essentially unattainable, and for having exposed himself to the despair of truth?all essential traits Nietzsche claimed for his own thinking. At the same time, the existentialist philosopher remained highly critical of Kant.0This volume of Reiner Schürmann?s lectures unpacks Nietzsche?s ambivalence towards Kant, in particular positioning Nietzsche?s claim to have brought an end to German idealism against the backdrop of the Kantian transcendental-critical tradition. Rather than simply compare the two philosophers, Schürmann?s lectures help us to understand the consequences Nietzsche derived from Kantian concepts, as well as the wider horizon within which Nietzsche?s ideas arose and can best be shown to apply. According to Schürmann?s trenchant reading: if Nietzsche was indeed?fatal? to Western philosophy, as he claimed, he was so in large part because of the Kantian transcendental thinking from which he inherited the very elements and tools of his criticism
