A Finite Thinking (Cultural Memory in the Present)
This book is a wealthy number of philosophical essays radically interrogating key notions and preoccupations of the phenomenological tradition. Whilst the use of Heidegger’s Being and Time as its permanent point of reference and dispute, this collection also confronts other essential philosophers, such as Kant, Nietzsche, and Derrida. The projects of those pivotal thinkers of finitude are relentlessly pushed to their extreme, with respect both to their unexpected horizons and to their as yet unexplored analytical potential. A Finite Thinking shows that, sarcastically, where the considered finitude comes into its own it frees itself, not only to reaffirm a certain transformed and transformative presence, but additionally for a non-religious reconsideration and reaffirmation of certain theologemes, in addition to of the body, heart, and love. This book shows the literary dimension of philosophical discourse, providing essential enabling ideas for scholars of literature, cultural theory, and philosophy.
