A Finite Thinking (Cultural Memory in the Present) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a rich collection of philosophical essays radically interrogating key notions and preoccupations of the phenomenological tradition. While using Heideggers Being and Time as its permanent point of reference and dispute, this collection also confronts other important philosophers, such as Kant, Nietzsche, and Derrida. The projects of these pivotal thinkers of finitude are relentlessly pushed to their extreme, with respect both to their unexpected horizons and to their as yet unexplored analytical potential. A Finite Thinking shows that, paradoxically, where the thought of finitude comes into its own it frees itself, not only to reaffirm a certain transformed and transformative presence, but also for a non-religious reconsideration and reaffirmation of certain theologemes, as well as of the body, heart, and love. This book shows the literary dimension of philosophical discourse, providing important enabling ideas for scholars of literature, cultural theory, and philosophy.

Book News Annotation:

Nancy (philosophy, U. Marc Bloch, Strasbourg) questions some key notions and preoccupations of the phenomenological tradition in 15 essays. Five of them were published in the volume e finie/> by Editions Galil<'e>e in 1990; Nancy and Sparks (of whom no more is said) added the others for the English edition. No index is provided.

Synopsis:

“This book is a splendid demonstration of the many joys of thinking about thought itself. The finitude highlighted in the title applies to the concepts of thinking that Nancy expertly and adroitly elucidates: sense, sacrifice, existence, presence, love, the body. Nancy shows us that thinking is not a chess game of large, ungainly abstract pieces; it is a dance of specificity much akin to poetry and art themselves.” &#8212;Henry Sussman,State University of New York at Buffalo
