Contradiction Set Free (eBook)
de Goldschmidt Hermann Levin Goldschmidt
Sobre o livro
First published in in 1976, Goldschmidt's Contradiction Set Free (Freiheit f r den Widerspruch) reflects the push to explore new forms of critical thinking that gained momentum in the decade book ended by Adorno's Negative Dialectics in 1966 and Feyerabend's Against Methods in 1975. The book articulates the initiative to reclaim an epistemologically critical position that recognized the deep underlying link between the modes of production of knowledge and the social and political life they produce. In signaling a breakout from the academic rut and its repressive hold, their interventions advanced critical alternatives for moving beyond the predicament of an ossified institutionalized way of doing philosophy whose traumatizing consequences could no longer be ignored.Contradiction Set Free makes available for the first time in English a pivotal work by one of the great critical thinkers of the 20th century.
