Product Description

German post-Kantian idealism was designed to effectuate a shift from epistemology to a new ontology, but without simply regressing to pre-critical metaphysics, contend Gabriel (philosophy, New School for Social Research, US) and Zizek (cultural studies, U. of Ljubljana, Slovenia). They locate the gap between the alleged absolute thing-in-itself and the relative phenomenal world within the absolute itself. It is a crucial duty of contemporary post-Kantian idealism, to make sense of this shift, they say, in order to contribute to the overcoming of epistemology as prima philosophia. Hegel and Fichte are the idealist figures they concentrate most on. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
