After modernity : Husserlian reflections on a philosophical tradition by James R Mensch( )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an important new answer to the much-discussed question of the nature and possibility of philosophy following the collapse of the modern foundationalist paradigm. Mensch offers an alternative based in phenomenology. Using Husserl's analysis of temporality to reinvigorate Aristotle's account of time, he shows how the passing of modernity is actually an opening for doing metaphysics in a new nonfoundationalist manner. Positioning Husserl within a wider context, Mensch views him both as a culmination of the modern foundationalist paradigm and as providing a way to overcome it through his descriptive analyses

Levinas's existential analytic : a commentary on Totality and infinity by James R Mensch( )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By virtue of the originality and depth of its thought, Emmanuel Levinas's masterpiece, Totality and Infinity: An Essay on Exteriority, is destined to endure as one of the great works of philosophy. It is an essential text for understanding Levinas's discussion of "the Other," yet it is known as a "difficult" book. Modeled after Norman Kemp Smith's commentary on Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, Levinas's Existential Analytic guides both new and experienced readers through Levinas's text. James R. Mensch explicates Levinas's arguments and shows their historical referents, particularly with regard to Heidegger, Husserl, and Derrida. Students using this book alongside Totality and Infinity will be able to follow its arguments and grasp the subtle phenomenological analyses that fill it. -- Amazon.com
The question of being in Husserl's Logical investigations by James R Mensch( Book )

16 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study proposes a double thesis. The first concerns the Logische Untersuchungen itself. We will attempt to show that its statements about the nature of being are inconsistent and that this inconsis tency is responsible for the failure of this work. The second con cerns the Logische Untersuchungen's relation to the Ideen. The latter, we propose, is a response to the failure of the Logische Untersuchungen's ontology. It can thus be understood in terms of a shift in the ontology of the Logische Untersuchungen, a shift motivated by the attempt to overcome the contradictory assertions of the Logische Untersuchungen. In this sense our thesis is that, in the technical meaning that Husserl gives the term, the Logische Untersuchungen and the Ideen can be linked via a "motivated path." We can, by way of an introduction, clarify our theses by regard ing three elements. The first is the relation of epistemology to ontology. The second is the notion of motivation as Husserl conceives the term. The third is the fundamental distinctions that are to be explained via the notion of motivation. 1. We should begin by remarking that the goal of the Logische Untersuchungen is explicitly epistemological; it is that of answer ing "the cardinal question of epistemology, the question concerning the objectivity of knowledge" (LU, Tub. ed., I, 8; F., p. 56V For Husserl, his other questions - i. e

Postfoundational phenomenology : Husserlian reflections on presence and embodiment by James R Mensch( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a fresh look at Edmund Husserl's philosophy as a nonfoundational approach to understanding the self as an embodied presence." "Contrary to the conventional view of Husserl as carrying on the Cartesian tradition of seeking a trustworthy foundation for knowledge in the "pure" observations of a disembodied ego, James Mensch introduces us to the Husserl who, anticipating the later investigations of Merleau-Ponty, explored how the body functions to determine our self-presence, our freedom, and our sense of time. The result is a concept of selfhood that allows us to see how consciousness's arising from sensuous experiences follows from the temporal features of embodiment."

Selfhood and appearing : the intertwining by James R Mensch( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the relation between our selfhood and appearing? Our embodiment positions us in the world, situating us as an object among its visible objects. Yet, by opening and shutting our eyes, we can make the visible world appear and disappear - a fact that convinces us that the world is in us. Thus, we have to assert with Merleau-Ponty that we are in the world that is in us: the two are intertwined. Author James Mensch employs the insights of Jan Patocka?s asubjective phenomenology to understand this double relationship of being-in. In this volume, he shows how this relation constitutes the reality of our selfhood, shaping our social and political interactions as well as the violence that constantly threatens to undermine them
Decisions and transformations : the phenomenology of embodiment by James R Mensch( )

5 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To say that we are embodied subjects is to affirm that we are both extended and conscious: both a part of the material world and a place where that world comes to presence. The ambiguity inherent in our being both can be put in terms of a double "being in." Thus, while it is true that the world is in consciousness taken as a place of appearing, it is equally true that, taken as embodied, consciousness is in the world. How can our selfhood support both descriptions? Starting with Husserl's late manuscripts on birth and death, James Mensch traces out the effects of this paradox on phenomenology. What does it mean to consider the self as determined by its embodiment? How does this affect our social and political relations, including those marked by violence? How does our embodiment affect our sense of transcendence, including that of the divine? In the course of these inquiries, such questions are shown to transform the very sense of phenomenology."-- Back cover
Patočka's asubjective phenomenology : toward a new concept of human rights by James R Mensch( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "For a reader versed in the Anglo-Saxon tradition of political philosophy, the Czech philosopher, Jan Potacka, appears as a paradoxical figure. A champion of human rights, he seems to present himself and his philosophy in quite traditional terms. He speaks of the "soul", its "care", and of "living in truth." Such concepts are combined with his insistence on the unconditional character of morality. Yet, in his proposal for an "asubjective" phenomenology, he undermines the traditional conceptions of the subjet of such rights. In factr, what Patocka forged in the last years of his life was a new conception of human being, one that finds its origins as much in Aristotle as in the phenomenological tradition. This book traces the influence of HUsserl, Heidegger, and Aristotle, among others, on the development of Patocka's thought. It shows how the confluence of these influences led patocka to redefine, not just phenomenology, but also the basic terms in which the debates on human rights have traditionally been cast."
