Traces and Influence Routledge Her new book, Philosophical Marranos. She is also a co-editor of Bamidbar. In The Star of Redemption, Rosenzweig continues the project started by Schelling in Weltalter, but he also improves it. While Schelling attempts to tell his story with the means of dialectic which will be able to solve the original con- tradiction in God, Rosenzweig gives up on the dialectical method in order to create a narrative which is based on a non-antithetical sequence.

Instead, Rosen- zweig elaborates a method of sequencing Yes and No in such a way that they never get bielik-robbson opposed. Storytelling as the modern piece of resistance more.

The imperative formulated in the title — You must write your own life — was originally used by Hans Jaeger, the founder In this chapter, I will use its slogan-like power to show how modernity enlists literature as an instrument of self-definition and individuation which resists submission to the societal law and order, yet, simultaneously, constitutes the highest and most lasting achievement of modern culture. The bielik-rlbson of liminoidality refers to the permanent borderline which, in modern times, moves from the fringe to the very center, now occupied by the anomian individual who evades being coopted by generic social roles.

Published in “Philosophische Anthropologie. Themen und Positionen” Band 8, ed. The aim of my paper is to place Helmuth Plessner’s anthropology within the fundamental debate on the nature of The aim of my paper is to place Helmuth Plessner’s anthropology within the agzta debate on the nature of freedom which in the last few decades took place between liberals and communitarians.

As a founding concept bielik-ribson modern liberalism, the bieli-krobson model of freedom — emancipation — hardly needs any clarification: On the other hand, the bielik-robzon as articulation is a relatively recent concept; it has emerged within the communitarian perspective, most notably in writings of Charles Taylor.

But, although it is Taylor to whom the credit of inventing the name ‘articulation’ should go, the very idea which lies behind it is, in fact, very old. The articulatory model of freedom has already been used against the emancipatory one by early romantics, especially by Herder. Emancipation offers a bieilk-robson of identity which is based on the absence of constraints; first, we must be free — only then we become ourselves, we finally gain identity by choosing it.


Contrary to this, articulation offers a model of identity which is based on recognition of original constraints as absolutely primary and indispensable: The essay written in Polish stages a confrontation between Helmuth Plessner and Jacques Derrida as the two continuators of philosophical anthropology, the discipline created by Johann Gottfried Herder who famously defined man as a Unlike the conservative wing of the Herderians, bielik-robsson stresses the need to compensate the original constitutive lack of human being e.

Arnold Gehlenboth Plessner and Derrida toy with the idea that the lack can be of value itself and that it does not call for the immediate cultural compensation.

Writing against the utopia of the radical community, Plessner and Derrida give an outline of another society respecting the limits and the distance implied by the constitutive lack which can never by fully revealed. PosthumanismNeohumanismand Postsecular theory.

The essay bielik-rrobson in Polish focuses on love as a characteristic marker of a finite existence and its inherent relationship with others. Against the thanatophilic thought of Martin Heidegger, who defined human life as Against the thanatophilic thought of Martin Heidegger, who defined human life as being-towards-death, the author would like to develop a philosophy of love which is, at the same time, an alternative philosophy of finitude.

In order to do gaata, she evokes the Jewish concept of ahava which cannot be reduced either to the Greek sublimatory eros or the Christian agape. The Messiah and the Great Architect: On bielik-ribson Difference Between the Messianic and the Utopian more.

This articles criticizes utopian thinking—but not beilik-robson the conservative perspective, seeing human society as inherently flawed and unable to progress, morally and politically. It opposes utopia in the name of messianic It opposes utopia in the name of messianic philosophico-theological heritage, often confused with the utopian strain or overshadowed by it.

Today, mostly thanks to Derrida and his own philosophical version of ” messianicity ” derived from Abrahamic religions, though by no means reducible to them—the messianic idea is undergoing a revival. The article examines this revival as an interesting alternative to utopian thinking: What Bloch and Derrida propose is a serious investment in the ” objective fantasy, ” not to be fully actualized but operative as a spectral source of ” inspiration ” in the progressive transformation of social laws.

Religion of the Finite Life? My essay emphasizes this connection, by arguing that the positive — My essay emphasizes this connection, by arguing that the positive — messianic — stake of deconstruction is the philosophical defense of the finite life.

I will claim that the gist of this intervention consists in arresting the sacrificial logic which life brings on itself while attempting to preserve itself, i. Nach dem Bilde des Schweigens. Konturen einer nicht gefallenen Sprache in den Gedichten Paul Celans more.
