Broken Hegemonies by Reiner Schurmann

Book Description

"...a book of striking originality and depth, a brilliant and quite new interpretation of the nature and history of philosophy." -John Sallis In Broken Hegemonies, the late distinguished philosopher Reiner Schurmann offers a radical rethinking of the history of Western philosophy from the Greeks through Heidegger. Schurmann interprets the history of Western thought and action as a series of eras governed by the rise and fall of certain dominating philosophical ideas that contained the seeds of their own destruction. These eras coincided with their dominant languages: Greek, Latin, and vernacular tongues. Analyzing philosophical texts from Parmenides, Plotinus, and Cicero, through Augustine, Meister Eckhardt, and Kant, to Heidegger, Schurmann traces the arguments by which these ideas gained hegemony and by which their credibility was ultimately demolished. Recognizing the failure of ultimate norms, Broken Hegemonies questions how humanity today is to think and act in the absence of principles.

Books By Author Reiner Schurmann

On Heidegger's 'Being and Time' by Reiner Schurmann On Heidegger's 'Being and Time', Hardback (June 2008)

Offers an exploration of Heidegger's work. This book argues that we must see "Being and Time" as a radicalization of Husserl's phenomenology, particularly his theories of intentionality, categorial intuition, and the phenomenological concept of the a priori. This leads to a reappraisal and defense of Heidegger's conception of phenomenology.

Wandering Joy by Reiner Schurmann Wandering Joy, Paperback (April 2001)

Both an exposition of Eckhart's mysticism and an exemplary work of contemporary philosophy.
