"... a publication of outstanding originality and intensity, an excellent and rather new interpretation of the character and historical past of philosophy." —John Sallis
In damaged Hegemonies, the past due unique thinker Reiner Schürmann deals a thorough rethinking of the background of Western philosophy from the Greeks via Heidegger. Schürmann translates the heritage of Western idea and motion as a chain of eras ruled by means of the increase and fall of definite dominating philosophical rules that contained the seeds in their personal destruction. those eras coincided with their dominant languages: Greek, Latin, and vernacular tongues. reading philosophical texts from Parmenides, Plotinus, and Cicero, via Augustine, Meister Eckhardt, and Kant, to Heidegger, Schürmann strains the arguments wherein those principles won hegemony and during which their credibility was once eventually demolished. spotting the failure of final norms, damaged Hegemonies questions how humanity this day is to imagine and act within the absence of principles.
