Broken Hegemonies (Studies in Continental Thought) by Reiner Schürmann

By Reiner Schürmann

"... a publication of remarkable originality and intensity, an excellent and relatively new interpretation of the character and background of philosophy." —John Sallis

In damaged Hegemonies, the past due exotic thinker Reiner Schürmann deals an intensive rethinking of the historical past of Western philosophy from the Greeks via Heidegger. Schürmann translates the background of Western suggestion and motion as a sequence of eras ruled via the increase and fall of definite dominating philosophical rules that contained the seeds in their personal destruction. those eras coincided with their dominant languages: Greek, Latin, and vernacular tongues. examining philosophical texts from Parmenides, Plotinus, and Cicero, via Augustine, Meister Eckhardt, and Kant, to Heidegger, Schürmann lines the arguments in which those principles received hegemony and wherein their credibility used to be finally demolished. spotting the failure of final norms, damaged Hegemonies questions how humanity at the present time is to imagine and act within the absence of principles.
