About this product
- DescriptionQuiet Powers of the Possible offers an excellent introduction to contemporary French phemelogy through a series of interviews with its most prominent figures. Guided by rigorous questions that push into the most important aspects of the latest phemelogical research, the book gives readers a comprehensive sense of each thinker's intellectual history, motivations, and philosophical commitments. The book introduces readers to debates that have t previously been accessible to the English-speaking world, such as the growing interest in the phemelogical concept of life in its affective and even vital dimensions, the emerging dialogue with the analytic philosophy of mind and language, and reassessments of the so-called theological turn. The diversity of approaches collected here has its origin in a deeper debate about the conceptual and historical foundations of phemelogy itself. In this way the book offers the most accessible and wide-ranging introduction to French phemelogy to have appeared in the English-speaking world to date.
