By Reiner Schürmann

"... a e-book of outstanding originality and intensity, a super and relatively new interpretation of the character and background of philosophy." —John Sallis

In damaged Hegemonies, the past due special thinker Reiner Schürmann bargains an intensive rethinking of the heritage of Western philosophy from the Greeks via Heidegger. Schürmann translates the heritage of Western notion and motion as a chain of eras ruled via the increase and fall of convinced dominating philosophical principles that contained the seeds in their personal destruction. those eras coincided with their dominant languages: Greek, Latin, and vernacular tongues. interpreting philosophical texts from Parmenides, Plotinus, and Cicero, via Augustine, Meister Eckhardt, and Kant, to Heidegger, Schürmann lines the arguments wherein those principles won hegemony and wherein their credibility was once eventually demolished. spotting the failure of final norms, damaged Hegemonies questions how humanity this present day is to imagine and act within the absence of principles.
