About this product
- DescriptionThe philosophical ideal of self-kwledge has been all but forgotten in what Walker Percy calls the age of theory. Hartle attempts to recover that ancient philosophical task and to articulate what that ideal could mean in the context of our historical situation. She considers and rejects claims that we can attain self-kwledge through theory, anti-theory, or narrative and she defends philosophy as a humanistic, rather than scientific, endeavor. Self-Kwledge in the Age of Theory will be of great interest t only to philosophers but to scholars of literature and other humanities.
- Author BiographyAnn Hartle is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Emory University and the author of Death and the Disinterested Spectator and The Modern Self in Rousseau's Confessions.
