Douglas Moggach, Editor. The New Hegelians: Politics And Philosophy In The Hegelian School, Todd Gooch Dec 2006

Douglas Moggach, Editor. The New Hegelians: Politics And Philosophy In The Hegelian School, Todd Gooch

Todd Gooch

Of the thirteen essays collected in this volume, several of which discuss more than one thinker, approximately three are devoted to Marx, two to Feuerbach, two to Bruno Bauer, two to Max Stirner, and one each to Eduard Gans, Edgar Bauer, and Friedrich Engels. Underlying the diversity of their individual positions, these "New Hegelians" were united by a common interest in exploiting the conceptual resources of Hegelian philosophy to develop new categories for analyzing and transforming the European intellectual and social order after the collapse of the traditional estate system. The concluding essay by Ardis Collins draws on the discussion ...

Max Stiner And The Apotheosis Of The Corporeal Ego, Todd Gooch Dec 2005

Max Stiner And The Apotheosis Of The Corporeal Ego, Todd Gooch

Todd Gooch

This paper clarifies Stirner’s relationship to his Left Hegelian contemporaries, Ludwig Feuerbch and Bruno Bauer, by showing how, in The Ego and Its Own, Stirner sought to exploit a fundamental contradiction that he perceived in the humanisitc atheism of Feuerbach and Bauer, and thereby to complete the critique of religious consciousness initiated by them. After having reconstructed Stirner’s position in relation to those of his contemporaries, the paper goes on to identify a significant weakness in it, and to identify resources in Feuerbach’s program for a future philosophy that might be enlisted in response to Stirner. The ...

Merold Westphal Overcoming Onto-Theology: Toward A Postmodern Christian Faith. Perspectives In Continental Philosophy, Todd Gooch Dec 2001

Merold Westphal Overcoming Onto-Theology: Toward A Postmodern Christian Faith. Perspectives In Continental Philosophy, Todd Gooch

Todd Gooch

This volume is a collection of fourteen essays, all but one of which were published separately between 1993 and 2000. Although the volume does not present a singe, sustained critique of onto-theology, or a systematic defense of the postmodern Christian faith alluded to in the title, each of the articles does contribute to Westphals' over-arching aim, which is to appropriate certain central themes of postmodern philosophy for the task of Christian thinking.

The following paper was written in response to a call for papers addressing "The Role of the Emotions in Religious Reasoning," and was presented to the Philosophy of Religion Group of the American Academy of Religion in Nashville, Tennessee on November 21, 2000. Whatever else might be said about it, Scheler's treatment of this theme is among the most original to have been articulated by any major twentieth-century philosopher. The paper is divided into two parts. The first part examines Scheler's views on religion in relation to his broader philosophical project. The second part seeks to determine the ...
