Sacrifice in the Post-Kantian Tradition: Perspectivism, Intersubjectivity, and Recognition (SUNY series in Contemporary Continental Philosophy)

Paolo Diego Bubbio


An exam of the philosophical inspiration of sacrifice from Kant to Nietzsche.

In this ebook, Paolo Diego Bubbio bargains a substitute for common philosophical debts of the concept of sacrifice, which usually start with the hermeneutic and postmodern traditions of the 20th century, beginning in its place with the post-Kantian culture of the 19th century. He restructures the ancient improvement of the concept that of sacrifice via a examine of Kant, Solger, Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche, and exhibits how each one is indebted to Kant and has extra in universal with him than is usually said. Bubbio argues that even though Kant sought to loose philosophical proposal from non secular foundations, he didn't thereby render the position of non secular claims philosophically lifeless. This makes it attainable to give some thought to sacrifice as a regulative and symbolic thought, and results in an unorthodox suggestion of sacrifice: now not the destruction of whatever for the sake of whatever else, yet particularly a kenotic emptying, conceived as a withdrawal or a “making room” for others.
