Philosophy, revision, critique : rereading practices in by David Wittenberg

By David Wittenberg

Philosophers have typically relegated the subject of revision to the sidelines in their self-discipline, in the event that they have thought of it in any respect. This ebook contends that acts of revision are relevant and imperative to the venture of philosophizing and that philosophy may be construed basically as a tradition of rereading and rewriting. The publication focuses mainly on Heidegger’s hugely influential interpretation of Nietzsche, carried out in lectures in the course of the Thirties and Nineteen Forties and released in 1961. the writer heavily analyzes the rhetorical capacity wherein Heidegger repositions Nietzsche’s pondering inside a wide heritage of metaphysics, at the same time Heidegger positions his personal reinterpretation as that history’s extra “proper” reading.

The writer argues that Heidegger’s revisionist venture recasts the philosophical textual content as paralipsis, a different form of ironic assertion that after “properly” obtained by means of the philosophical rereader, expresses what the textual content didn't and will now not say. The learn of such paraliptical revisionism in the philosophical canon bargains a brand new method of figuring out the elemental historicity of the philosophical textual content, a textual content that's severely indistinguishable from its personal destiny heritage of interpretations. Philosophy itself is revision, a deeply historicist rereading perform, a continuing reappropriation of its personal fallacious textual past.

In addition to being the 1st book-length released learn of Heidegger’s interpretation of Nietzsche, the e-book additionally examines the paintings of Hans-Robert Jauss, Harold Bloom, and different critics of revision. specifically, Ralph Waldo Emerson’s early essays on historical past, learn either with and opposed to Heidegger’s research of metaphysics, reveal why the ancient intervention completed via revisionist examining is not just a proper and thematic alteration of the earlier, but additionally a rhetorical coercion of destiny interpretive trends. No philosophical reader is just a consumer or sufferer of revisionist tools: in rereading philosophical pasts, the reader is the very mechanism during which such interpretive traits are first shaped into difficulties or innovations in the philosophical canon.
