Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through a series of in-depth studies of thinkers such as Kierkegaard, Husserl, Heidegger, Levinas, Ricoeur, Derrida, and others, Kearney explores the ways in which Continental philosophy has endeavored to respond to the crisis of values (ethics) and the crisis of imagination (poetics). Among the topics discussed are the fragmentation of inherited concepts of truth, ideology vs. utopia, myth versus critique, tradition versus reason, and modernity vs. postmodernity. Kearney also considers these themes in connection with postmodern texts in literature, painting, and politics.

Richard Kearney is Professor of Philosophy at University College Dublin and also Visiting European Professor for part of the year at Boston College.
