Johann Georg Hamann Philosophy and Faith

£45.00

Product description

THE PROBLEM OF THE INTERPRETATION OF HAMANN Johann Georg Hamann is an intriguing but poorly known figure in the contemporary intellectual world. Yet this is the man whom Kierkegaard saluted as "Emperor!," whose writings were to have been arranged for publication by none other than Goethe himself, and whom Dilthey numbered among the primordial figures in the rise of modern historical consciousness. There are reasons for the persistence of this general ignorance. Hamann is deep. And, in addition, there is his forbidding style. The readers of Kierkegaard and Dilthey, two other giants who them- selves achieved late recognition, have not had to face this kind of imposing obstacle. Not only does Hamann expect his readers to handle themselves in deep water, but to intuit their way between his ideas which bob up like islands with no visible connection between them. Like Kierkegaard too, Hamann has had his troubles with the public. He himself referred to the hope that he would be understood by a "better posterity." In fact only the last few years have seen the printing of some of his more controversial writings, in particular his theories on the nature of human sexuality.

Oxfam Bookshop Chiswick

Oxfam Books & Music Turnham Green is a local favourite for reasonably priced second hand books, CD's, DVD's and vinyl. Come along and have a good browse...


Turn left at Turnham Green tube, head under the bridge and we're a short walk along on the left.  Alternatively, head up Turnham Green Terrace from Chiswick High Road, and we're further up on the right.  Local bus routes include the E3, 27, 94, 237 and 272.


Donations of books, CD's DVD's and vinyl are very welcome.  If coming by car, you can stop to unload on the double yellow lines on the same side of the road as the shop, but on no account mount the pavement or park at the bus stop on the opposite side as you will be fined.  Overall, it's less tense to come to our side entrance on Thornton Avenue - access from Chiswick High Road, follow the No Through Road signs, and at the end you will see our door which has a grill on it and a buzzer to press for attention.  


We're looking forward to seeing you soon!
