The humanities--in their conceptual and intellectual specificity, disciplinary rigor, and ethical, social, and political potential--are very much in need of defense and rearticulation in our time, particularly from a perspective that moves beyond the political and philosophical reductions of identity politics. Leaving aside polemics, Fynsk asserts that discourses in the humanities will find real ethical-political purchase when they engage with the material events in art, literature, and social life that call for humanistic reflection.
Fynsk describes the collapse of the traditional terms of defense in the contemporary academy, and then sets out to establish that the humanities are more than a loose affiliation of academic disciplines and research projects. Showing how events in language raise questions fundamental to the humanities--questions about the nature of human experience in the modern era and the nature of the human itself--"The Claim of Language proposes a renewed relationship to language as a way to rethink humanistic research.
Fynsk extends his philosophical meditation with two essays on the university and the politics of philosophy. The first, devoted to the work of Gerard Granel, explores the political implications of a quite radical project of fundamental critique.
The second focuses on Jacques Derrida's propositions for a reconception of the nature and task of critical thought in the new College International do Philosophic. Other Formats: Hardcover , Paperback. First sustained critical reading of Lacoue-Labarthe's Phrase , which provides insights into a philosophically inspired work of prose poetry.
This book presents an interpretation of a volume of poetry and theoretical reflections Phrase by the late Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, who is widely known as one of the major contributors to thinking about the relation between philosophy and literature in the continental tradition.
His work has shaped the deconstructive approach to the question of the subject and has opened important paths of research relating to the topic of literary mimesis.
Along with Jean-Luc Nancy, he made very important contributions in the areas of romantic literary theory and psychoanalytic theory. Fynsk first deals with the theme of infancy and draws forth the deep relation to Blanchot that is revealed in this text. More Information. Anything else? Provide feedback about this page.
