About this product
- DescriptionAvi Kujman claims against the attempt of philosophy to do away with poetry. In his opinion, this neglect involves the giving-up on the spirit or the ideal of wisdom for the political, all-too-political sphere of recognition. Poetry is of great avail for philosophy in the way up and in the way down, in the way to wisdom and in the way of instilling it to others. Mr. kujman, thus, fights against the tradition in order to achieve its implicit desire in the all-encompassing meaning. He is doing so by refuting what the tradition implies about this fight vis-a-vis Plato as its originator. Again, this fight is t made against history, but within history and for history. Thus, though it seems besides the essential point and a cause for inconvenience for the author, he, netheless, tries his hand in confuting post-modernism as an option against the tradition, by the by, refuting the naivete of Roland Barthes by what appears here as its reductio-ad-absurdum, i.e., Michel Foucault.
