Transcendental History defends the claim that historicality is an essential prerequisite for human knowledge, and hence that human beings are always historical beings in a strict sense. This theory is vital to the present direction of European philosophy.
Transcendental History defends the claim that historicality is an essential prerequisite for human knowledge, and hence that human beings are always historical beings in a strict sense. This theory is vital to the present direction of European philosophy. By explaining this theory, and by tracing its development from the days of Kant and Hegel to those of Derrida and Agamben in a tale of how transcendental and speculative philosophy gradually gave way to historical thinking in the shape of phenomonology, hermeneutics and deconstruction, Søren Gosvig Olesen not only enriches our understanding of the history of philosophy but also contributes to epistemology, the philosophy of history, and philosophical anthropology. Seeking a broader audience, Transcendental History addresses itself to all those interested in the questions and controversies motivating contemporary European philosophy and its critical engagement with its past.
