Description

Focusing on nineteenth-century philosophers from Schelling and Hegel to Nietzsche, and on contemporary theorists from Derrida to Kristeva and Lyotard, the essays in this book suggest that the two areas are most similar at the points where they seem most unlike. Tracing the links of contemporary thought to its nineteenth-century precursors, the authors explore such issues as the re-theorizing of history and the subject, the limits and persistence of the metaphysical, and the ends of theory.

Review quote

"This book does much more than reassess certain currents in poststructuralism by returning to its preoccupation with such writers as the Jena Romantics, Hegel, Nietzsche, and Freud. This book reminds us that poststructuralism is indeed only part of a larger coming to terms with philosophical issues of post-enlightenment theory. The writing in this book is characterized by integrity, care, andand brilliance. What is remarkable about this book is less its overall conception than its superb execution." -- Alice Kuzniar, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
