Book Description Polity Press, United Kingdom, 1992. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Now available in paperback, this book provides an elegant analysis of the philosophical background to the post-modernity debate. Vattimo focuses on the work of Nietzsche and Heidegger and shows how their bitter criticisms of modern European thought prepared the way for more recent proclamations of the end of the modern era. Vattimo pursues questions central to aesthetics and hermeneutic philosophy and sides with contemporary philosophers such as Gadamer and Rorty in rejecting the search for stable and transcendent foundations for knowledge. Going beyond their work he introduces the notions of weak thought and weak ontology which, he argues, offer a way of going beyond metaphysics by curing philosophy of the modernist disease and by resituating questions of truth and being within the realm of human experience.
