What Is Thinking?: And Other Philosophical Reflections (Hardcover)

What Is Thinking?: And Other Philosophical Reflections Cover Image


The philosophical essays of this collection argue, each time from a singular perspective, that the task of thinking is to release the element of the unconditional from various closures, and thus to make it manifest as the true and the essential task of our individual and social existence. Naming this unconditional element as the messianic, the book displays the profound ethico-political significance of messianic thought for our contemporary world.
