Ressentiment—the hateful desire for revenge—plays a pivotal role in Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals.

Hegel’s Metaphysics and the Philosophy of Politics

1st Edition

Michael J. Thompson

The renaissance in Hegel scholarship over the past two decades has largely ignored or marginalized the metaphysical dimension of his thought, perhaps most vigorously when considering his social and political philosophy. Many scholars have consistently maintained that Hegel’s political philosophy...

Hegel and Ancient Philosophy: A Re-Examination

Glenn Alexander Magee

Pragmatism, Kant, and Transcendental Philosophy

1st Edition

Gabriele Gava, Robert Stern
November 28, 2017

Philosophers working within the pragmatist tradition have pictured their relation to Kant and Kantianism in very diverse terms: some have presented their work as an appropriation and development of Kantian ideas, some have argued that pragmatism is an approach in complete opposition to Kant. This...

1st Edition

Justin Remhof
September 15, 2017
