Composed at a vital second in historical past and in Heidegger's personal pondering, those conversations current meditations on technological know-how and know-how; the devastation of nature, the warfare, and evil; and the potential for liberate from representational considering right into a extra actual relation with being and the area. the 1st dialog comprises a scientist, a student, and a advisor jogging jointly on a rustic course; the second one happens among a instructor and a tower-warden, and the 3rd contains a more youthful guy and an older guy in a prisoner-of-war camp in Russia, the place Heidegger’s sons have been lacking in motion. certain as a result of their conversational sort, the lucid and distinctive translation of those texts bargains perception into the problems that engaged Heidegger’s wartime and postwar thinking.
For the final centuries, Western philosophy has built within the shadow of Hegel, a power every one new philosopher struggles to flee. As a consequence, Hegel’s absolute idealism has turn into the bogeyman of philosophy, obscuring the incontrovertible fact that he's the defining thinker of the historic transition to modernity, a interval with which our personal occasions proportion startling similarities.
Today, as worldwide capitalism comes aside on the seams, we're coming into a new period of transition. In under not anything, the made from a career-long concentration on the a part of its writer, Slavoj Žižek argues it's important we no longer easily go back to Hegel yet that we repeat and exceed his triumphs, overcoming his limitations by being much more Hegelian than the grasp himself. Such an process not only permits Žižek to diagnose our current situation, but additionally to interact in a critical discussion with key strands of latest thought—Heidegger, Badiou, speculative realism, quantum physics, and cognitive sciences. Modernity will begin and finish with Hegel.

Que pouvons-nous entendre aujourd’hui de ce que dit Nietzsche ? Voilà (presque) le seul objet de ce livre.
Il ne s’agit pas d’un pur commentaire explicatif de l. a. philosophie de Nietzsche (lequel s’explique très bien tout seul, quand il le fait), mais d’une évaluation, entre ses textes et notre lecture, de son pouvoir de dire et de notre volonté de lire.
Le variety d’homme auquel Nietzsche s’est adressé et dont il a interrogé l. a. puissance et los angeles volonté, il l’a appelé l’homme moderne. Il sentait bien que ses lecteurs n’existaient pas encore ; ses vrais lecteurs, c’est nous désormais. C’est à nous en tant que sujets de raison et de droit, démocrates et citoyens de sociétés libérales, qu’il s’adresse comme à un problème insurmonté : los angeles modernité est inachevée, et plus de cent cinquante ans après, nous n’en avons toujours pas fini avec los angeles détresse du présent éprouvée par Nietzsche et sa philosophie.
Jusqu’où pouvons-nous et voulons-nous l’entendre ?
