Abstract

Soren Kierkegaard was as much aesthete as philosopher, and his writings are as much literary and music criticism as philosophy. Kierkegaard, Literature, and the Arts contains fourteen essays that focus on the influence and reception of Kierkegaard in literature, the visual arts, and music. The essays in part I focus on Kierkegaard in relationship to literature, his own main medium of expression; part II, to the performing arts, including theater, music, and dance; part III, to visual arts and film; while the essays of part IV are comparative in nature, considering Kierkegaard in juxtaposition with a Romantic poet, a modern composer, and a contemporary musician, singer, and song-writer.

Abstract

Rabinoff strives to account for ethical perception (aisthesis) in Aristotle’s ethics—to give it a place of importance in ethical choice and action—and to offer an account of the faculty of perception expansive enough to include reception of the ethical significance of particulars. The book is motivated by particular features of Aristotle’s thought and by increasing philosophical awareness that the ethical agent is an embodied, situated individual, rather than a disembodied, abstract rational will. Traditionally, the soul has been understood to have a non-rational part characterized by desire and perception and a rational part characterized by thinking, knowledge, and argument. Depending on how the relationship between the sides is conceived, the non-rational is either a bane to be controlled by the rational, or plays an irreducible role in moral action. By establishing and accounting for perception’s place in ethics, Rabinoff shows the importance for ethical life of integrating both.

Abstract

This chapter reflects on what materiality-inflected methodologies1 can bring to&#xD;an anthropology of law, and to legal studies more generally. Its starting point is an&#xD;increasing attention across the social sciences and humanities for objects, and thinking&#xD;beyond the human. These have often, but not only, emerged from science and&#xD;technology studies (STS), to which we pay particular attention. However, approaches&#xD;to materiality have themselves become diversified, and their implications for law can&#xD;similarly be read in multiple ways. At the same time, legal anthropology has helped to&#xD;re-characterise the complexity of law as a field of social activity by paying attention&#xD;to its meanings, for actors within as well as outside its own institutions; to its modes of&#xD;action in practice, again within its explicitly designated spaces as well as its everyday;&#xD;to its unexpected forms, patterns and directions; to its multiplicity and uncertainty.&#xD;Approaches within a broadly defined ‘legal anthropology’ agenda have provided tools&#xD;to move away from grand and removed theorisation of the law, or an exclusive attention&#xD;to its own claims, and towards a subtler understanding of law as a relatively fluid,&#xD;changing and uncertain set of practices. While doing so, legal anthropology has also&#xD;reminded us of the significance of empirical research to identify and theorise the&#xD;complex existences of law, a contribution which echoes some of the implications of&#xD;materiality-oriented theories.

Abstract

What did Immanuel Kant really think about love? This book is the first in-depth study of the concept of love in Kant`s philosophy. It argues that love is much more important to Kant than previously thought, and that understanding love is actually essential for Kantian ethical life. Perhaps surprisingly, for Kant, love permeates human existence from the strongest impulses of nature to the highest ideals of morally deserved happiness.

Abstract

ca. 200 words; this text will present the book in all promotional forms (e.g. flyers). Please describe the book in straightforward and consumer-friendly terms.[Trump and Trumpism, 21st century warfare, chronic illness, intellectual property: These are just some of the issues examined here. Inspired by the work of Michel Foucault, this book includes articles from scholars employing political genealogy as a methodology and model of theoretical inquiry representing a wide range of disciplines, from the social sciences to the humanities, from philosophy to medicine, to economics, to political and cultural theory. Featuring some of the best and most current work in political genealogy, this work invites us to rethink many of the key concepts in political theory as well as cultural types of expression that we do not routinely think of as political, such as dance, romantic movies, and literature. Broadly conceived, this volume contains essays—excursions, explorations, experimentations—into how political genealogy helps us to understand what Foucault calls “the history of our present,” while at the same time looking to our future, to what being a political subject will look like in the 21st century.

Abstract

The book brings together seven essays on Cicero written by specialists in the Author. The essays are grouped into two sections: in the first one, papers on Cicero’s works (the dialogues: Lucullus, De finibus, De oratore, De officiis); in the second one, papers on both the early and late reception of Cicero (in Seneca, Petrarch and Erasmus). The essays belong to professors from Brazilian (Adriano Scatolin, Bianca Fanelli Morganti, Elaine Cristine Sartorelli, Sidney Calheiros de Lima), French (Carlos Lévy) and Italian universities (Aldo Setaioli, Ermanno Malaspina). The book avoids biographical approach, which sometimes takes the works of Cicero as a reliable witness of political and family events, sometimes distrusts them as a distorted picture of public and private actors; or yet, conceives of them as either the Author’s profession of faith in a philosophical doctrine, or a tendentious presentation of the theses of philosophical schools. Instead, the essays adopt another interpretative key, so that, when analyzing a philosophical dialogue of Cicero, instead of seeking references to its historical moment, focus on its controversial aspects (due to the dispute between the schools of philosophy), rhetorical aspects (the amplifying devices through which the Author compares the strength of one thesis with the weakness of another), fictional aspects (including the description of the scene and the picture of the characters). Thus, it can be said that the book seeks a more appropriate approach to Cicero’s works, not taking them as mere source of historical knowledge, but considering their historicity, that is, the devices for discursive production of their own time.

Abstract

The aim of the publication is both to provide the debates on globalization with a genuine philosophical perspective by working out its normative dimensions, and to scientifically ground the ethical-philosophical discourse on global responsibility. Other topics addressed are the altering consciousness of space and time, and globalization as a discourse, as an ideology and as a symbolic form.
