9780226123660: Phenomenology and Deconstruction, Volume One: The Dream is Over

"Philosophy as . . . a rigorous science . . . the dream is over," Edward Husserl once declared. Heidegger (Husserl's successor), Derrida, and Rorty have propounded versions of "the end of philosophy." Cumming argues that what would count as philosophy's coming to an end can only be determined with some attention to disruptions which have previously punctuated the history of philosophy. He arrives at categories for interpreting what is at issue in such disruptions by analyzing Heidegger's and Husserl's break with each other, Heidegger's break with Sartre, and Merleau-Ponty's break with Sartre.

In this analysis Cumming deals with how a philosophy can be vulgarized (as Heidegger's was by Nazism but in Heidegger's own view by Sartre), with problems of periodization, with how the history of philosophy can be disinguished as a philosophical discipline from intellectual history. Cumming also elaborates an analogy between a philosophical method and style.

From the Back Cover:

In this analysis, Cumming deals with how a philosophy can be vulgarized with problems of periodization, with how the history of philosophy can be distinguished as a philosophical discipline from intellectual history.

From Library Journal:

If we have entered a post-philosophic period, how did we get here and what is the next intellectual step? Using interpretations of Heidegger and Sartre and their relationships to Husserl and phenomenology as his main focus, Cumming explains the various meanings of the "end of philosophy." Questions of philosophic method, political affiliations, and literary styles are also discussed. Cumming is especially good in his close readings of the exact intellectual influence Sartre received from Husserl and Heidegger. A detailed, well-written study, recommended for large philosophy collections.
