Download Nietzsche’s Nihilism in Walter Benjamin by Mauro Ponzi (.PDF)

Nietzsche’s Nihilism in Walter Benjamin by Mauro Ponzi
Requirements: .PDF reader, 4.2 Mb
Overview: This book reconstructs the lines of nihilism that Walter Benjamin took from Friedrich Nietzsche that define both his theory of art and the avant-garde, and his approach to political action. It retraces the eccentric route of Benjamin’s philosophical discourse in the representation of the modern as a place of “permanent catastrophe”, where he attempts to overcome the Nietzschean nihilism through messianic hope. Using conventions from literary criticism this book explores the many sources of Benjamin’s thought, demonstrating that behind the materialism which Benjamin incorporates into his Theses on the Concept of History is hidden Nietzsche’s nihilism. Mauro Ponzi analyses how Benjamin’s Arcades Project uses figures such as Baudelaire, Marx, Aragon, Proust and Blanqui as allegories to explain many aspects of modernity. The author argues that Benjamin uses Baudelaire as a paradigm to emphasize the dark side of the modern era, offering us a key to the interpretation of communicative and cultural trends of today.

Download Naming Evil, Judging Evil by Ruth W. Grant (.PDF)

Naming Evil, Judging Evil by Ruth W. Grant
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.9 Mb
Overview: Is it more dangerous to call something evil or not to? This fundamental question deeply divides those who fear that the term oversimplifies grave problems and those who worry that, to effectively address such issues as terrorism and genocide, we must first acknowledge them as evil. Recognizing that the way we approach this dilemma can significantly affect both the harm we suffer and the suffering we inflict, a distinguished group of contributors engages in the debate with this series of timely and original essays.

Drawing on Western conceptions of evil from the Middle Ages to the present, these pieces demonstrate that, while it may not be possible to definitively settle moral questions, we are still able—and in fact are obligated—to make moral arguments and judgments. Using a wide variety of approaches, the authors raise tough questions: Why is so much evil perpetrated in the name of good? Could evil ever be eradicated? How can liberal democratic politics help us strike a balance between the need to pass judgment and the need to remain tolerant? Their insightful answers exemplify how the sometimes rarefied worlds of political theory, philosophy, theology, and history can illuminate pressing contemporary concerns.

Download The Apophenion: A Chaos Magic Paradigm by Peter J. Carroll (.ePUB)

The Apophenion: A Chaos Magic Paradigm by Peter J. Carroll
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.6 MB
Overview: “My final Magnum Opus if its ideas remain unfalsified within my lifetime, otherwise its back to the drawing board.

Yet I’ve tried to keep it as short and simple as possible, it consists of eight fairly brief and terse chapters and five appendices. It attacks most of the great questions of being, free will, consciousness, meaning, the nature of mind, and humanity’s place in the cosmos, from a magical perspective.

Some of the conclusions seem to challenge many of the deeply held assumptions that our culture has taught us, so brace yourself for the paradigm crash and look for the jewels revealed in the wreckage.This book contains something to offend everyone; enough science to upset the magicians, enough magic to upset the scientists, and enough blasphemy to upset most trancendentalists.”

Download The Movement of Nihilism by Laurence Paul Hemming (.PDF)

The Movement of Nihilism: Heidegger’s Thinking After Nietzsche (Continuum Studies in Continental Philosophy) by Laurence Paul Hemming , Kostas Amiridis , Bogdan Costea
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.0 MB
Overview: When Nietzsche announced ‘the advent of nihilism’ in 1887/88, he argued that he was sketching ‘the history of the next two centuries’: ‘For some time now’, he wrote, ‘our whole European culture has been moving as toward catastrophe […]: restlessly, violently, headlong, like a river that want to reach the end, that no longer reflects, that is afraid to reflect.’

Can we gain a ground for reflection upon our own condition? Can we heed Nietzsche’s warning? Can we respond to the challenge? In this book, eleven newly commissioned essays from leading scholars offer an attempt to grasp Nietzsche’s prescience through Heidegger’s critique of it; attempting to think through the philosophical consequences of the last century in reading the signs of our own condition. The book also provides and fascinating and unique discussion of some of the lesser-known texts of the later Heidegger.

Download Heidegger and Marx by Laurence Paul Hemming (.PDF)

Heidegger and Marx: A Productive Dialogue Over the Language of Humanism by Laurence Paul Hemming
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.5 Mb
Overview: Martin Heidegger and Karl Marx remain two of the most influential thinkers in philosophy, in political science and other social sciences, and in the humanities. Yet there has never been a full-length study in English of the relationship between their ideas, and there has only been one study in German (from 1966). A Productive Dialogue fills this gap and contradicts the widely held assumption that Heidegger had no significant engagement with Marx. Hemming focuses on four related areas of inquiry—Heidegger’s reading of Marx; Marx’s relation to G. W. F. Hegel; Heidegger’s disastrous political involvement with National Socialism; and the significance of Hegel, Marx, Heidegger, and Friedrich Nietzsche for the politics of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. A Productive Dialogue explores the understanding of political processes, systems, and behavior that animates both thinkers.

Download The Macintyre Reader by Kelvin Knight (.PDF)

The Macintyre Reader by Kelvin Knight
Requirements: .PDF reader, 30.9 Mb
Overview: Alasdair MacIntyre is one of the most controversial philosophers and social theorists of our time. He opposes liberalism and postmodernism with the teleological arguments of an updated Thomistic Aristotelianism. It is this tradition, he claims, which presents the best theory so far about the nature of rationality, morality, and politics. This is the first reader of MacIntyre’s groundbreaking work. It includes extracts from and his own synopses of two famous books from the 1980s, After Virtue and Whose Justice? Which Rationality? as well as the whole of several shorter works and two interviews. Together, these pieces constitute not only a representative collection of his work but also the most powerful and accessible presentation of his arguments yet available. The MacIntyre Reader concludes with Kelvin Knight’s clear and insightful overview of MacIntyre’s central ideas and their development in his writings. Students will find this book an excellent introduction to one of the great thinkers of our time.

Download Reasons Why by Bradford Skow (.PDF)

Reasons Why by Bradford Skow
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2 MB
Overview: Reasons Why first argues that what philosophers are really after, or at least should be after, when they seek a theory of explanation, is a theory of answers to why-questions. It then advances a thesis about what form a theory of answers to why-questions should take: a theory of answers to why-questions should say what it takes for one fact to be a reason why another fact obtains. The book’s main thesis, then, is a theory of reasons why. Every reason why some event happened is either a cause, or a ground, of that event. Challenging this thesis are many examples philosophers have thought they have found of "non-causal explanations." Reasons Why uses two ideas to show that these examples are not counterexamples to the theory it defends. First is the idea that not every part of a good response to a why-question is part of an answer to that why-question. Second is the idea that not every reason why something is a reason why an event happened is itself a reason why that event happened. In the book’s final chapter its theory of reasons why is extended to cover teleological answers to why-questions, and answers to why-questions that give an agent’s reason for acting.

Download The Reception of Kant’s Critical Philosophy by Sally Sedgwick (.PDF)

The Reception of Kant’s Critical Philosophy: Fichte, Schelling, and Hegel by Sally Sedgwick
Requirements: .PDF reader, 5 MB
Overview: The period from Kant to Hegel is one of the most intense and rigorous in modern philosophy. The central problem at the heart of it was the development of a new standard of theoretical reflection and of the principle of rationality itself. The essays in this volume consider both the development of Kant’s system of transcendental idealism in the three Critiques, the Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science, and the Opus Postumum, as well as the reception and transformation of that idealism in the work of Fichte, Schelling, and Hegel.

Download Hegel’s Philosophy of Reality, Freedom by Robert M. Wallace (.PDF)

Hegel’s Philosophy of Reality, Freedom, and God (Modern European Philosophy) by Robert M. Wallace
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.71 Mb
Overview: This book shows that the repeated announcements of the death of Hegel’s philosophical system have been premature. Hegel’s Philosophy of Freedom, Reality, and God brings to light accomplishments for which Hegel is seldom given credit: unique arguments for the reality of freedom, for the reality of knowledge, for the irrationality of egoism, and for the compatibility of key insights from traditional theism and naturalistic atheism. The book responds in a systematic manner to many of the major criticisms leveled at Hegel’s system, from Feuerbach and Kierkegaard to Heidegger and Charles Taylor. It provides detailed interpretations of Hegel’s Philosophy of Spirit, large parts of his indispensable Science of Logic, and important parts of his Philosophy of Nature and Philosophy of Right. Unlike many academic books on Hegel, this one treats him very much as a ‘live’ thinker, whom we can learn from today.
