4. Juni 2014 Cultural Memory in the Present
Spinoza Contra Phenomenology fundamentally recasts the history of postwar French thought, which is typically presumed by detractors and celebrants alike to have been driven by a critique of reason indebted above all to Nietzsche and Heidegger. Although the reception of German phenomenology gave rise to many of the most innovative developments in French philosophy, from existentialism to deconstruction, not everyone in France was pleased with this German import. The book recounts how a series of French philosophers used Spinoza's rationalism to erect a bulwark against the nominally irrationalist tendencies of Husserl's and Heidegger's thought in France. From its beginnings in the interwar years in philosophy of science and the history of philosophy, this Spinozist rationalism would prove foundational for Louis Althusser's rethinking of Marxism and Gilles Deleuze's ambitious metaphysics. There has been a renewed enthusiasm for Spinozism in various quarters of late by those who would see his work as a kind of neo-vitalism or philosophy of life and affect. Peden bucks the trend by tracking a decisive and neglected aspect of Spinoza's philosophy - his rationalism - in a body of thought too often presumed to have rejected reason. In the process, he demonstrates that the critical resources of Spinoza's rationalism have yet to be exhausted today.

"In this signal contribution to the study of European thought, Knox Peden shows that the importation of German phenomenology to France in the twentieth century was only part of the story. In appealing to Benedict Spinoza's version of rationalism, neglected figures whom this book restores to their centrality made conceptual moves of lasting importance, setting a context for the careers of Louis Althusser and Gilles Deleuze, with which Peden's absorbing reinterpretation culminates. Thanks to his sure grasp of the theoretical materials and ability to address them in lucid writing, Spinoza Contra Phenomenology redraws the map, not simply for the sake of having a better one, but because debates across the contemporary humanities need its orientation." - Samuel Moyn, Columbia University "The conventional understanding of twentieth-century French thought is just beginning to fracture, and we are now coming to appreciate the complexity and significance of intellectual trends that once-dominant schools - such as phenomenology and existentialism, structuralism and post-structuralism - have too long obscured. In this brilliant new study, Knox Peden breaks free of received wisdom to cast a new light on the movement of French philosophical rationalism that borrowed both its energies and its name from the metaphysical writings of a seventeenth-century heretical Jew. Spinozism, as reimagined in France by heterodox intellectuals such as Althusser and Deleuze, was something more than a philosophy: it was a veritable ethos. With verve and sophistication, Peden maps this inheritance and guides us through the formidable debates that have not yet reached their end." - Peter Eli Gordon, Harvard University

4.0 von 5 Sternen the rational as real; the real as rational 14. Juli 2014
Von toronto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This is a very well written, very careful study of a French thematic that has been overshadowed by the better known existentialist and phenomenological stories. It deals primarily with what could be called the anti-Cartesian approach to reality (beyond subjectivity) through (originally) the model of Spinoza. Much of the later part of the work is very dense, in its exposition of the vagaries of Althusser and Deleuze. I found the first two chapters the most interesting, since they retrieve the role of mathematical speculation (mathematics naturally raising the classic question of what the ontological status of mathematical truths might be); and I particularly appreciated the extraordinary story of Cavailles in the earlier part of this period. For a general reader, even more exposition of the basic background later history (Althusser, Deleuze, etc.) would have helped, though the details that were provided on French Communist Party politics were very interesting and valuable. This is not a book for people just coming to modern French philosophy, phenomenology, or Spinoza for that matter! -- you need to be very familiar with the "state of play".
