9781573927758: The Long Path to Nearness: A Contribution to a Corporeal Philosophy of Communication

Bringing together Reichian psychoanalysis, the utopian Marxism of Ernst Bloch, and a rigorous phenomenology of communication following Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty, Ramsey argues that studies of corporeality are a necessary component of a philosophy of communicative praxis directed toward ethical concerns. Ramsey's work, which includes a detailed description of communicative praxis in a world whose destiny is determined by technology, offers an original response to this situation by developing an "ethics of relief."
