  2. Modernity and Subjectivity

    This work proposes a new view of modernity, arguing that although it may variously be associated wtih the Renaissance, the discovery of the New World and other significant ruptures with primitive or premodern society, modernity fails as an idea if it only defines itself against what it replaces.

  3. Acts

    Why do people act? Why are other people drawn to watch them? How is acting as a performing art related to role-playing outside the theatre? As the first philosophical study devoted to acting, Acts: Theater, Philosophy, and the Performing Self sheds light on some of the more evasive aspects of the acting experience— such as the import of the actor's voice, the ethical unease sometimes felt while embodying particular sequences, and the meaning of inspiration.

  8. The Birth of Theater from the Spirit of Philosophy

    Nietzsche's love affair with the theater was among the most profound and prolonged intellectual engagements of his life, but his transformational role in the history of the modern stage has yet to be explored. David Kornhaber vividly shows how Nietzsche reimagined the theatrical event as a site of philosophical invention that is at once ancestor, antagonist, and handmaiden to the discipline of philosophy itself.

  10. Free Will and the Human Sciences in Britain, 1870-1910

    From the late nineteenth century onwards religion gave way to science as the dominant force in society. This led to a questioning of the principle of free will. Smith takes an in-depth look at the problem of free will through the prism of different disciplines. His subtly nuanced navigation through these arguments has much to contribute to our understanding of Victorian and Edwardian science and culture. Learn More
