By Reiner Schürmann

"... a publication of amazing originality and intensity, an excellent and rather new interpretation of the character and background of philosophy." —John Sallis

In damaged Hegemonies, the past due distinct thinker Reiner Schürmann deals a thorough rethinking of the background of Western philosophy from the Greeks via Heidegger. Schürmann translates the heritage of Western proposal and motion as a chain of eras ruled by way of the increase and fall of sure dominating philosophical rules that contained the seeds in their personal destruction. those eras coincided with their dominant languages: Greek, Latin, and vernacular tongues. examining philosophical texts from Parmenides, Plotinus, and Cicero, via Augustine, Meister Eckhardt, and Kant, to Heidegger, Schürmann lines the arguments during which those rules won hegemony and during which their credibility used to be eventually demolished. spotting the failure of final norms, damaged Hegemonies questions how humanity at the present time is to imagine and act within the absence of principles.
