Joseph P. Fell proposes that the answer to the matter of nihilism is located within the universal event of individuals and the standard commitments that one makes to humans, practices, and associations. In his landmark 1979 publication Heidegger and Sartre, and in his next essays, Fell describes a quiet yet radical reform within the philosophical culture that speaks to perennial dilemmas of suggestion and urgent concerns for action.

Since Descartes, a minimum of, we have now been questioned as to what we will be able to recognize, how we should always act, and what we must always price. The skeptical effect of contemporary dualism—distilled within the mind-body challenge at arose with the statement “I imagine, for this reason I am”—has shot via not only philosophy and psychology, but in addition society, politics, and tradition. With dualism arose radical subjectivism and the concomitant difficulties of nihilism and alienation. The huge objective of phenomenology is to fix the rupture of self and international. introduced via Edmund Husserl and constructed by way of Jean-Paul Sartre, Martin Heidegger, and John William Miller, who drew from the North American culture, this is often the venture to which Fell has committed greater than a part century of mirrored image and technical elaboration.

In this quantity, an array of students give some thought to, criticize, and domesticate Fell’s key contributions to the phenomenological undertaking. starting from analyses of key texts in Fell’s phenomenology to probing examinations of his the most important philosophical presuppositions to the clients for Fell’s name to discover the answer to nihilism in daily experience—these essays assemble the paintings of the authors considering with and during Fell’s key works on Sartre, Heidegger, and Miller. additionally incorporated are seminal statements from Fell on his pedagogical perform and his perception of philosophy.
