About the Author:

Santiago Zabala is researcher in philosophy, Pontifical Lateran University of Rome, and the author of numerous books, including Tugendhat: The Hermeneutical Nature of Analytic Philosophy.

Review:

"Weakening Philosophy does what no other book has done with this major figure in contemporary thought: place him at the centre of a dialogue featuring important voices in philosophy today - Eco, Nancy, Rorty, Taylor, Frank, Welsch, and Oqate." William Egginton, romance languages and literatures, The Johns Hopkins University "An outstanding and unique collection. Vattimo has made numerous original, path-breaking contributions to the philosophy of religion, all of which are very intelligently discussed, analyzed, and criticized by the contributors." Barry Allen, philosophy, McMaster University

Book Description McGill-Queen's University Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Weakening Philosophy: Essays in Honour of Gianni Vattimo, Santiago Zabala, Gianni Vattimo is one of the world's most important philosophers, yet he has received scant attention in the English-speaking world. The essays in "Weakening Philosophy", from leading figures such as Umberto Eco and Charles Taylor, introduce his ideas to a wider audience. Moving away from Jacques Derrida's deconstructionism and Paul Ricoeur's hermeneutics, and building on his experiences as a politician, Vattimo asks if it is still possible to speak of moral imperatives, individual rights, and political freedom. Acknowledging the force of Nietzsche's "God is dead," Vattimo argues for a philosophy of pensiero debole or "weak thinking" that shows how moral values can exist without being guaranteed by an external authority. His secularising interpretation stresses anti-metaphysical elements and puts philosophy into a relationship with postmodern culture. Bringing together twenty-one influential philosophers, theologians, and literary critics, "Weakening Philosophy" is an important assessment of Vattimo's influence and the major tenets of his thought.
