New Release: Richard D. Winfield, “In Defense of Reason after Hegel. Why We Are So Wise” (Anthem Press, 2022)

We are glad to give notice of the book In Defense of Reason after Hegel. Why We Are So Wise by Richard Dien Winfield (Anthem Press, 2022).

From the publisher’s webiste:

In Defense of Reason after Hegel builds upon and enlists the arguments of Hegel to refute the disempowerment of reason perpetrated by the peddlers of misinformation in public life and by analytic philosophy and postmodernism in the academy. Undermining their assaults on truth, this book shows how the fundamental character of nature and of mind allow reason to be autonomous and allow us to enact a reality of freedom in accord with right and freely create works of fine art.

The book examines how life and language provide the means for reason to be autonomous and how the autonomy of thought precludes natural evolution or bioengineering from enhancing our capacity for philosophical thinking. It unravels the perplexities of the logic of self-determination and to show how the will can achieve self-determination in the conventions by which agents engender the institutions of freedom. The book then unveils the limitations of the principle of contradiction, which bars the way to an understanding of how anything can be determinate and how thought and action can be free. The book also draws upon Hegel’s Philosophy of Mind to show how language can originate and be an appropriate vehicle of autonomous reason.

New Release: Georg Sans, Johannes Stoffers (eds.), “Religionsphilosophie nach Fichte” (J.B. Metzler, 2022)

We are glad to give notice of the release of the volume Religionsphilosophie nach Fichte. Das Absolute im Endlichen, edited by Georg Sans and Johannes Stoffers (J.B. Metzler, 2022).

From the publisher’s website:

Johann Gottlieb Fichte befasste sich zeitlebens mit Fragen der Religion. Er verbindet Religiosität mit der Perspektive persönlichen Wachstums und lebendiger Hoffnung. Dabei richtet er sein Augenmerk auf die moralischen Implikationen des religiösen Glaubens und ist sich auch der politischen Relevanz von Religion bewusst. In dem Band der Reihe Neue Horizonte der Religionsphilosophie wird die Denkbewegung Fichtes hermeneutisch nachvollzogen und systematisch reflektiert, um Fichtes Einsichten auch für die gegenwärtigen Debatten um das Verhältnis von Moral, Religion und Gesellschaft fruchtbar zu machen.

The question of the Master stretches back to times immemorial, to the very origins of human culture. It kept haunting our history throughout millennia, presenting ever new facets and enigmas. Why and how would someone acquire the superior status of a leader, a person in charge and in command, with the inscrutable aura of a Master, wielding the imperious power over people? And why would others submit to and accept the exceptional authority of the Master, comply with his commands, and acquiesce in their compliance?

The question is at the core of all political philosophy and more widely of a vast variety of reflections on the foundations of social domination, be it in the attempts to legitimize the power of some people over the others, be it in the attempts to put an end to it. The conference does not aim at addressing the vastness of these intricate questions, all of them with a very long and venerable history, engaging instead with the problem of the present-day figures of the Master. We want to explore in what ways these figures present a novelty in relation to tradition, recent and old, and what can be done to invent strategies to counteract them.

We want to explore in what ways these figures present a novelty in relation to tradition, recent and old, and what can be done to invent strategies to counteract them.

We are intrigued by contemporary phenomena like the obscenity of power and the theatricality of power, where it seems that the political domination depends on its public display, its representation in the media and its performance in front of the cameras, but in a very different sense that this could be said for the Monarch or for the totalitarian Leader. What are the prevailing forces of dominion today? How do they operate? How are they represented and what is their performative power? What are the novel forms of the master-slave dialectic in the interweaving of the digital and the physical and how do they affect the social and the intimate?
