About this product
- DescriptionWhen future historians chronicle the twentieth century, they will see phemelogy as one of the preeminent social and ethical philosophies of its age. The phemelogical movement t only produced systematic reflection on common moral concerns such as distinguishing right from wrong and explaining the status of values; it also called on philosophy to renew European societies facing crisis, an aim that inspired thinkers in interwar Europe as well as later communist bloc dissidents. Despite this legacy, phemelogy continues to be largely discounted as esoteric and solipsistic, the last gasp of a Cartesian dream to base kwledge on the isolated rational mind. Intellectual histories tend to cite Husserl's epistemological influence on philosophies like existentialism and deconstruction without considering his social or ethical imprint. And while a few recent scholars have begun to te phemelogy's wider ethical resonance, especially in French social thought, its image as stubbornly academic continues to hold sway. The Far Reaches challenges that image by tracing the first history of phemelogical ethics and social thought in Central Europe, from its founders Franz Brenta and Edmund Husserl through its reception in East Central Europe by dissident thinkers such as Jan Patocka, Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II), and Vaclav Havel.
