Download E-books Very Little ... Almost Nothing: Death, Philosophy and Literature (Warwick Studies in European Philosophy) PDF
By Simon Critchley
Very Little ... nearly not anything puts the query of the which means of existence again on the centre of highbrow debate. Its vital quandary is how we will be able to discover a aspiring to human finitude with out recourse to something that transcends that finitude. A profound yet secular meditation at the subject matter of loss of life, Critchley lines the assumption of nihilism via Blanchot, Levinas, Jena Romanticism and Cavell, culminating in a studying of Beckett, in lots of methods the hero of the book.
In this moment version, Simon Critchley has additional a revealing and prolonged new preface, and a brand new bankruptcy on Wallace Stevens which displays at the thought of poetry as philosophy.
