History of Semiotics

This volume brings together a collection of papers on the general theoretical and methodological problems in the historiography of semiotics. It is not a history in the conventional sense, even though the main periods and figures in the development of semiotics are given due prominence. Nevertheless, it should offer the reader stimulation and food for thought in the critical approach to even the least questioned facts of semiotic history and the emphasis given to hitherto neglected problems and persons.

On the Use and Abuse of History for Life

Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

The treatise "On the Use and Abuse of History for Life" is one of Nietzsche's early writings on culture. It was published in 1874, after his professorship in Basel, Switzerland. At first, there was hardly any response to this text. It was only with the reception of Heidegger during the twenties and thirties of the next century that it developed its historical effect on modern thinking. Thanks to its easy-to-understand account, this paper is well suited to understand the thinking of the early Nietzsche. In addition, basic features of his later concepts of the "revaluation of all values" and the "overman" can already be detected here. In addition to the English language version, this e-book also contains the original German text.

Philosophy of History After Hayden White

Author: Robert Doran

Publisher: A&C Black


Category: Philosophy

Page: 256

View: 525

This anthology of new essays by an international group of preeminent scholars explores the ground-breaking work of Hayden White, whose thought, beginning with his seminal Metahistory (1973), has revolutionized the way we think about the philosophy of history, historiography, narrative, and the relation between history and literature. Representing a variety of disciplines and approaches, the contributions to this volume testify to the far-reaching effects and significance of White's philosophy of history. Individual essays relate White's ideas to contemporary art, cognitive studies, Heideggerian hermeneutics, experimental history, Kant's transcendental philosophy, analytic philosophy of history, Marxist cultural theory, the Kantian sublime, and American academic historiography. A substantial introduction by the editor traces the genesis of White's philosophy of history, situating it with respect to both the Anglo-American and Continental traditions. The volume also features a previously unpublished essay by White, which offers a concise overview of his later thought, and a "Comment" written specifically for this volume, in which White revisits the question of the philosophy of history.
