Dictations by Avital Ronell
Book DescriptionOne of the most influential of Goethe's works is one he didn't write but dictated to a young companion. Four years after his death at the age of eighty-three, the great poet spoke again from beyond the grave in "Conversations with Eckermann", Johann Peter Eckermann's account of his time with Goethe in the last years of his life. Proclaimed by Nietzsche to be "the best German book," "Conversations with Eckermann" contains Goethe's last thoughts about art, poetry, politics, religion, and a host of other highly invested areas of concern for the fate of German letters and philosophy. In "Dictations", Goethe is seen as the undead core of German literary and theoretical production, the basis of a poignant code of symptoms that Avital Ronell tracks and traces. Eckermann, for Ronell, emerges as the hero of haunted writing, the toxically depleted head of the class of Goethe scholars.

Although sex and philosophy have much in common, however, they have scarcely known one another. This study explains why philosophy has never been fully sexualized nor sex really philosophized. It highlights the marked deletion of sexual topics and themes from philosophical works, while also opening doors for their union.
