Nietzsche and Levinas : "after the death of a certain God" by Jill Stauffer 10 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide The essays that Jill Stauffer and Bettina Bergo collect in this volume locate multiple affinities between the philosophies of Nietzsche and Levinas. Both philosophers question the nature of subjectivity and the meaning of responsibility after the "death of God.
Both argue that goodness exists independently of calculative reason--for Nietzsche, goodness arises in a creative act moving beyond reaction and ressentiment; Levinas argues that goodness occurs in a spontaneous response to another person. In a world at once without God and haunted by multiple divinities, Nietzsche and Levinas reject transcendental foundations for politics and work toward an alternative vision encompassing a positive sense of creation, a complex fraternity or friendship, and rival notions of responsibility.
Stauffer and Bergo group arguments around the following debates, which are far from settled: What is the reevaluation of ethics and life that Nietzsche and Levinas propose, and what does this imply for politics and sociality?
Judeities: questions for Jacques Derrida
What is a human subject--and what are substance, permanence, causality, and identity, whether social or ethical--in the wake of the demise of God as the highest being and the foundation of what is stable in existence? Finally, how can a "God" still inhabit philosophy, and what sort of name is this in the thought of Nietzsche and Levinas?
Dis-enclosure : the deconstruction of Christianity by Jean-Luc Nancy 5 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "This book is Articulating this faith as works and as an objectless hope, Nancy deconstructs Christianity in search of the historical and reflective conditions that provided its initial energy. Working through Blanchot and Nietzsche, re-reading Heidegger and Derrida, Nancy turns to the Epistle of Saint James rather than those of Saint Paul, discerning in it the primitive essence of Christianity as hope.
The 'religion that provided the exit from religion, ' as he terms Christianity, consists in the proclamation of an end. It is the proclamation that counts, however, rather than any finality. In this proclamation there is proximity to others and to what was once called parousia. But parousia is no longer presence; it is no longer the return of the Messiah. Rather it is what is near us and does not cease to open and to close, a presence deferred yet imminent.
In a demystified age where we are left with a vision of a self-enclosed world--in which humans are no longer mortals facing an immortal being, but entities whose lives are accompanied by the time of their own decline--parousia stands as a question. Can we venture the risk of a decentered perspective, such that the meaning of the world can be found inside and outside, whithin and without our so-immanent world? The deconstruction of Christianity that Nancy proposes is neither a game nor a strategy. Our lives overflow the self-contained boundaries of their biological and sociological interpretations.
Out of this excess wells up a fragile, overlooked meaning that is beyond both confessionalism and humanism"--Page 4 of cover.

Nietzsche and the shadow of God by Didier Franck Book 6 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide. Zygmunt Zawirski, his life and work : with selected writings on time, logic and the methodology of science by Irena Szumilewicz-Lachman Book 5 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Zygmunt Zawirski - one of the most eminent and original Polish philosophers - belonged to the Lwow-Warsaw School LWS which left an indelible trace in logic, semiotics and philosophy of science.
LWS was founded in by K.
Twardowski, a disciple of Brentano, in the spirit of clarity, realism and analytic philosophy. This belies, inter alia, the not infrequently repeated statement that LWS was one of the many centers initiated by the Vienna Circle. The achievements of LWS in logic are well recognized, while those relating to philosophy of science are almost unknown. It is in order to fill this gap that some fragments of Zawirski's papers are presented, dealing mainly with causality, determinism, indeterminism and the philosophical implications of relativity and quantum mechanics.
It is one of the best books written on this subject, and by no means an obsolescent one. Zawirski took into account all the issues which are at present widely discussed. The real value of these achievements can be understood better today than in his own day. No cover image.
