This book aims to make a philosophical contribut...

Ethics and the Philosophy ...

Questions of ethics and the study of culture are tightly interwoven. Are we to see ethics as one thread in the fabric created by human culture or does ethics rather transcend culture? The discussions in this volume take place within this spectrum. Eleven Wittgenstein scholars explore how ethics is embedded in everyday activities an...

Event and Decision

This book addresses the philosophies of Alain Badiou, Gilles Deleuze, and Alfred North Whitehead in relation to the concepts of event, ontology and politics.

Evolutionary Analogies

No philosopher in the second half of the twentieth century or the opening decade of the twenty-first did more to recover the voice of philosophy in the conversation of humankind than John Edwin Smith (1921–2009). From The Social Infinite (1950), his landmark study of Josiah Royce, to “Niebuhr’s Prophetic Voice” (2009), he has shown...

Expression and Survival

Philosophers know suicide primarily as an ethical problem. But in Expression and Survival, Craig Greenman argues that, when it comes to suicide, the standard ethical approach may do more harm than good.

Georg Simmel in Translatio...

Though Georg Simmel considered himself a philosopher, his intellectual influence went well beyond the confines of one academic discipline at the turn of the last century. His writings on money, modernity, and the metropolis, as well as the artwork, female culture, and psychologism, left a significant mark on contemporaries like Wal...

Greatness of Soul

Featuring a Nietzschean paragraph from Hume that smacks of Milton’s Satan, these pages also register how “claws and teeth” figure in Aristotle’s Greatness of Soul, and leave Hobbes to pose a still deeper challenge in the same vein. With poets, led by Milton, almost as thick underfoot as philosophers, we are given a glimpse of what ...

Hegel

The book is the analysis of the works of one important philosopher by another. Edward Caird is without doubt one of the leading Scottish philosophers of the late nineteenth century, and an important British Idealist. That his work (as with the work of other British Idealists) has been influenced by Hegel and other German Idealists ...

Hegel’s agonistic interpretation of these “ref...
