A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. The concept of hope is central to the work of the German philosopher Ernst Bloch (1885-1977), especially in his magnum opus, The Principle of Hope (1959). The speculative materialism that he first developed in the 1930s asserts a commitment to humanity s potential that continued through his later work. In The Privatization of Hope, leading thinkers in utopian studies explore the insights that Bloch s ideas provide in understanding the present. Mired in the excesses and disaffections of contemporary capitalist society, hope in the Blochian sense has become atomized, desocialized, and privatized. From myriad perspectives, the contributors clearly delineate the renewed value of Bloch s theories in this age of hopelessness. Bringing Bloch s ontology of Not Yet Being into conversation with twenty-first-century concerns, this collection is intended to help revive and revitalize philosophy s commitment to the generative force of hope.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The concept of hope is central to the work of the German philosopher Ernst Bloch (1885-1977), especially in his magnum opus, The Principle of Hope (1959). The "speculative materialism" that he first developed in the 1930s asserts a commitment to humanity's potential that continued through his later work. In The Privatization of Hope, leading thinkers in utopian studies explore the insights that Bloch's ideas provide in understanding the present. Mired in the excesses and disaffections of contemporary capitalist society, hope in the Blochian sense has become atomized, de-socialized, and privatized. From myriad perspectives, the contributors clearly delineate the renewed value of Bloch's theories in this age of hopelessness. Bringing Bloch's "ontology of Not Yet Being" into conversation with twenty-first-century concerns, this collection is intended to help revive and revitalize philosophy's commitment to the generative force of hope.

Critique:

"Bloch ... is one of the rare figures of whom we can say: fundamentally, with regard to what really matters, he was right, he remains our contemporary, and maybe he belongs even more to our time than to his own." - Slavoj eiuek, from the preface
