Reviews - What do customers think about Philosophy at the Boundary of Reason: Ethics and Postmodernity?

Philosophy in Postmodernity  Jul 29, 2002
This is a fair rendition of the question of the boundary of reason in the postmodern situation. Chapter seven is particularly helpful for anyone at all honest in the attempt to think at the boundary in a postmodern situation. It throws into focus the cental issues of language and the living present, contrasting a postmodern view of these with one that still respects a sense of the phenomenological primordiality as a main contribution of the whole movement of phenomenology, in all of its phases. After considering the postive dimensions of postmodernity throughout this serious inquiry, an attempt is made to incorporate this dimension into a Ricoeurean ethical synthesis, one that can be easily seen to take into account the positive dimensions of postmodern thinking.

the boundaries of bad writing and bad thinking  May 22, 2001
Bourgeois's "Philosophy at the Boundary of Reason", a pretentious title if there is any, displays the characteristics of bad writing and stereotypical thinking that has become a feature of a lot of continental philosophy. In his latest (one would almost be tempted to hope: his last) book, he sets out to approach the boundary of reason within the context of "ethics and postmodernity." Thus he repeats the most common stereotypes on the Kantian distinction between Grenze und Schranke and, in his typical acontextual and ahistorical approach, shows neither knowledge nor interest in the complex discussion of that very problematic in post-Kantian German idealism. How an account of the boundary of reason could ever be written without taking into account this complex discussion, has fully escaped this reader. In addition, the lacking grasp of the most fundamental knowledge of the original German texts is more than obvious. And this Philosophy 101 approach, completely devoid of any awareness of the history of philosophy, extends into his discussion of Derrida. Derrida is erected as a mere straw-man of "postmodernity" (and there is also no awareness of the subtle distinctions that are to be drawn between postmoden, postmodernity, and postmodernism) that a completely unnuanced reading of Ricoeur is to take down under the auspices of an ethics that barely hides its tendentious theological underpinnings. In short, this book shows American continental philosophy at its worst - complex philosophical concepts, their sedimented history, are reduced to mere signal words that betray the ideological position of this philosopher whose style is a curious mixture of linguistic positivism and doctrinal thought.
