Produktbeschreibung

For a reader versed in the Anglo-Saxon tradition of political philosophy, the Czech philosopher, Jan Pato?cka, appears as a paradoxical figure. A champion of human rights, he seems to present himself and his philosophy in quite traditional terms. He speaks of the “soul,” its “care,” and of “living in truth.” Such concepts are combined with his insistence on the unconditional character of morality. Yet, in his proposal for an “asubjective” phenomenology, he undermines the traditional conceptions of the subject of such rights. In fact, what Pato?cka forged in the last years of his life was a new conception of human being, one that finds its origins as much in Aristotle as in the phenomenological tradition. This book traces the influence of Husserl, Heidegger, and Aristotle, among others, on the development of Pato?cka’s thought. It shows how the confluence of these influences led Pato?cka to redefine, not just phenomenology, but also the basic terms in which the debates on human rights have traditionally been cast.
