    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2010; US$ 20.76

    Grenzerfahrung ist eine der grundsätzlichen Kategorien, die das Leben und Arbeiten zwischen Sterben und Tod kennzeichnen.

  • "Anerkennung" als Prinzip der Kritischen Theorieby Hans-Christoph Schmidt am Busch

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 168.00

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 168.00

    Nietzsche?s thinking is unparalleled in its contradictory effects and it continues to be relevant. Even today, opinions on him diverge strongly. Throughout the 20th century, philosophies, art movements and political ideologies have oscillated between euphoria and condemnation, affirmation and an ignoring silence. Incorrect and abusive readings in fascist... more...

  • "Idea matheseos universae"by Klaus-Dieter Herbst; Helmut G. Walther

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2012; US$ 24.57

    Der Mathematiker Erhard Weigel (1625?1699) gilt bisher als einer der bedeutendsten deutschen Vertreter der sog. "Frühaufklärung". Dieser Band hinterfragt nun diesen traditionellen und deshalb allzu bequemen philosophiegeschichtlichen Begriff nach seiner Erklärungsfunktion innerhalb der modernen Wissenschaftsgeschichte. In komparatistischer... more...
