marriage of political theory and critical philosophy 10 April 1999
By nicklamb@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
peter osborne attempts to forge a philosophically coherent link between existential and phenomenological accounts of time consciousness and the more or less implicit political theses of key twentieth century philosophers. Focussing at some length on both Heidegger and Benjamin - two thinkers whose political views could not be more opposed - Osborne attempts to show that the connection between individual temporality and historical intersubjectivity in the former is potentially as politically productive as the exploration of aesthetic, redemptive temporality in the latter. This is of course a massive project, and as such Osborne's necessarily dense prose can become overwhelming. What does come through quite clearly howewver is the author's commitment to highlighting the political and eventually practical implications of some of the most influential twentieth century thinkers, at a time when 'theory' itself can appear as so much literary play.
