About this product
- DescriptionLike Foucault and Levinas before him, though in very different ways, Scott makes an oblique incision into phemelogy...[it is] the kind of book to which people dazed by the specters of nihilism will be referred by those in the kw. -David Wood ...refreshing and original. -Edward S. Casey In The Lives of Things, Charles E. Scott reconsiders our relationships with ordinary, everyday things and our capacity to engage them in their particularity. He takes up the Greek tion of phusis, or physicality, as a way to point out limitations in refined and commonplace views of nature and the body as well as a device to highlight the often overlooked lives of things that people encounter. Scott explores questions of unity, purpose, coherence, universality, and experiences of wonder and astonishment in connection with scientific fact and kwledge. He develops these themes with lightness and wit, ultimately articulating a new interpretation of the appearances of things that are beyond the reach of language and thought.
- Author BiographyCharles E. Scott is Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Philosophy at the Pennsylvania State University. He is author of The Question of Ethics, On the Advantages and Disadvantages of Ethics in Politics (both published by Indiana University Press), and The Time of Memory.
