186 FENVES, PETER. The Messianic Reduction: Walter Benjamin And The Shape Of Time.
Stanford University Press, Stanford: 2011. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The Messianic Reduction is a groundbreaking study of Walter Benjamin's thought. Fenves places Benjamin's early writings in the context of contemporaneous philosophy, with particular attention to the work of Bergson, Cohen, Husserl, Frege, and Heidegger. By concentrating on a neglected dimension of Benjamin's friendship with Gershom Scholem, who was a student of mathematics before he became a scholar of Jewish mysticism, Fenves shows how mathematical research informs Benjamin's reflections on the problem of historical time. In order to capture the character of Benjamin's "entrance" into the phenomenological school, the book includes a thorough analysis of two early texts he wrote under the title of "The Rainbow," translated here for the first time. In its final chapters, the book works out Benjamin's deep and abiding engagement with Kantian critique, including Benjamin's discovery of the political counterpart to the categorical imperative in the idea of "pure violence." Peter Fenves is Joan and Sarepta Harrison Professor of Literature, Professor of German, Comparative Literary Studies, and Jewish Studies, and Adjunct Professor of Philosophy, Political Science, and English at Northwestern University. His most recent book is Late Kant: Towards Another Law of the Earth (2003).

189 FORMAN, LEWIS LEAMING; TULIN, ALEXANDER (FOREWORD). Selections From Plato.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2006. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
This classic text, which contains the complete Greek text of the Apology and of Crito with other selections, offers an introduction to Plato's language as well as an introduction to Socrates as presented by Plato. These two goals determined Lewis Leaming Forman's ample selection of passages from the writings of Plato. Forman's detailed and helpful notes enhance appreciation of how Greek prose—particularly Plato's—produces its effects. They include helpful discussions of syntax, the uses of particles, the effects of word order, and rhetorical devices. Forman also includes an appendix with an additional set of notes containing information chiefly on various syntactic patterns in the Greek language. Particularly suitable for second-, third-, or fourth-year students of Greek, this volume is also a useful resource for the Platonic scholar. Lewis Leaming Forman was Instructor in Greek at Cornell University and the author of Index Andocideus, Lycurgeus, and Dinarcheus (Morals and Law in Ancient Greece).

193 FRIEDLANDER, ELI. Expressions Of Judgment: An Essay On Kant's Aesthetics.
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2015. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The Critique of Judgment—the third and final work in Kant's critical system—laid the groundwork of modern aesthetics when it appeared in 1790. Eli Friedlander's reappraisal of this seminal accomplishment reformulates and elucidates Kant's thought in order to reveal the inner unity of the Third Critique. Expressions of Judgment emphasizes the internal connection of judgment and meaning in Kant's aesthetics, showing how the pleasure in judging is intimately related to our capacity to draw meaning from our encounter with beauty. Although the meaningfulness of aesthetic judgment is most evident in the response to art, the appreciation of nature's beauty has an equal share in the significant experience of our world. Friedlander's attention to fundamental dualities underlying the Third Critique—such as that of art and nature—underscores how its themes are subordinated systematically to the central task Kant sets himself: that of devising a philosophical blueprint for the mediation between the realms of nature and freedom. This understanding of the mediating function of judgment guides Friedlander in articulating the dimensions of the field of the aesthetic that opens between art and nature, the subject and the object, knowledge and the will, as well as between the individual and the communal. Expressions of Judgment illuminates the distinctness as well as the continuity of this important late phase in Kant's critical enterprise, providing insights for experienced scholars as well as new students of philosophy. Eli Friedlander is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Tel Aviv University. "In this elegant and pellucid essay, Eli Friedlander offers the most compelling defense to date of the classic, Goethean thesis that aesthetic reflective judgment does the great work of mediating and reconciling—of bringing into meaningful conversation with one another—the dualisms that score Kant's critical philosophy, above all the wrenching dualism between nature and culture, that we are free and self-determining creatures inhabiting living bodies within a living and mechanical universe. Bracing."—Jay Bernstein, New School for Social Research "Friedlander's Expressions of Judgment is the most illuminating single work on Kant's Third Critique that I have read. The book achieves a rare combination of overall perspicuity and clarity at the level of the individual sentence that repeatedly builds towards moments of penetrating insight, and thereby brings out aspects of Kant's thought and worldview from which the most experienced scholar is as likely to derive insight as is the new student."—Stephen Mulhall, Oxford University

195 FRYE, NORTHROP. The Modern Century: The Whidden Lectures 1967.
Oxford University Press, London: 1969. First Paperback Edition (Unstated). A Galaxy Book. 
Presents a brilliant array of ideas and observations on the mythology of our day and its central elements, alienation and progress; the effects of technology on the structure of the society; characteristics commonly associated with "modern"; anti-social attitudes in modern culture; the role of the arts in forming the contemporary imagination; and finally, the way in which the creative arts are absorbed into society through education. Everyone concerned with the states of mind and quality of life distinctive to the modern world - "where power and success express themselves so much in stentorian lying, hypnotized leadership, and panic-stricken suppression of freedom and criticism" - will be grateful for this lucid, sane and original discussion.

197 GAMEZ, DAVID. What We Can Never Know: Blindspots In Philosophy And Science.
The Continuum Publishing Company, New York: 2007. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
A lively, engaging and provocative examination of the limits of philosophy and science through studies of perception, time, madness and knowledge. Contemporary philosophy and science strive to give a complete account of the world and our position in it. In this original and provocative book, David Gamez engages the reader in a series of colorful thought experiments that illustrate the limits of this mission. Although we commonly believe that science will give a final description of everything, What We Can Never Know reveals blindspots in many of our theories that completely undermine their ability to explain reality. Each chapter explores these problems using a popular question or topic in philosophy, such as our perception of space, the nature of time, scepticism or the relationship between reason and madness. In this series of lively studies, Gamez pushes our everyday assumptions to their limits and opens up fresh perspectives on philosophy and science. By leading the reader progressively through key areas of our knowledge, this book will leave you questioning everything that you think you know. The Table Of Contents of this book is as follows: Introduction, 1. Stable and Collapsing Theories, 2. Evidence for the Brain?, 3. Impossible Speech about Time, 4. Merging Madness and Reason, 5. Lost in the Labyrinths of Knowledge, Endings..., Notes, Index. David Gamez is at the University of Essex, UK where he is working on a project to build a conscious robot. He has a PhD in Continental Philosophy and previous publications include What Philosophy Is (co-edited with Havi Carel, Continuum, 2003). "A wonderfully imaginative and powerfully written defence of positive scepticism." - Professor Simon Critchley - New School for Social Research, New York.

200 GARBER, DANIEL & AYERS, MICHAEL (EDITORS). The Cambridge History Of Seventeenth Century Philosophy ( Two Volume Set ).
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge: 2003. 0521531802 / 9780521531801 s Softcover. Brand new books in slip case. 
Offers a uniquely comprehensive and authoritative overview of early-modern philosophy written by an international team of specialists. As with previous Cambridge histories of philosophy the subject is treated by topic and theme, and since history does not come packaged in neat bundles, the subject is also treated with great temporal flexibility, incorporating frequent reference to medieval and Renaissance ideas. The basic structure of the volumes corresponds to the way an educated seventeenth-century European might have organised the domain of philosophy. Thus, the history of science, religious doctrine, and politics feature very prominently. The narrative that unfolds begins with an intellectual world dominated by a synthesis of Aristotelianism and scholastic philosophy, but by the end of the period the mechanistic or 'corpuscularian' philosophy has emerged and exerted its full impact on traditional metaphysics, ethics, theology, logic, and epistemology.
