    Editions Rodopi 2006; US$ 105.00

    One of the urgent tasks of modern philosophy is to find a path between the rationalism of the Enlightenment and the relativism of postmodernism.

  • Giordano Brunoby Heinrich von Stein

    Diplomica Verlag 2010; US$ 5.54

    "Das ist der Mutterschmerz der Wahrheit, daß sie den Schoß zerreißt, der sie gebiert. Ein jedes Neuerschaute wird für den, der es erschaut hat, ruhlose Qual. Es muß ja wohl so sein, daß das Neue, weil neu, nicht vernommen wird, und der Denker, weil er selten ist, einsam bleibt." Der umstrittene Dichter und Philosoph Heinrich Freiherr von Stein schreibt... more...

    The current economic crisis has triggered a broad debate about societal values.
