Review

"Art and accountability is a cosmopolitan exploration of the moral implications of the cultured and the cultured implications of the moral. Simon explores this subject via a phenomenological research of the idea of Heidegger and Rosenzweig. rather than generating an highbrow historical past of those thinkers, the writer seeks to elicit the moral repercussions in their philosophies of paintings via cautious philological-textual research in their dense writings. The juxtaposition of those seminal German thinkers has engendered a desirable research that absolutely will galvanize full of life dialogue and debate within the years to come." --

Example text

Hence, even though affirmation may be the primal determination, it is groundless, whereas “simple denial” is a primal positing that logically positions the proposition in its correct semantic order needed to depict Rosenzweig’s syntactical reconstruction of the semantics involved in linguistically expressing a concept that is meant to allude to the process involved in thinking the “nature” of god. In other words, the actual Thus of affirmation does not become situated without the implied “other” of denial because, in fact, each and any subject can only be one subject insofar as it is not any other subject.

Doubting Descartes For Rosenzweig, the world is the most self-evident object of knowledge. 32 The Mask of Mephistopheles 33 Rosenzweig’s metalogic begins by recalling this historical negation. But the actual goal of Descartes’ systematic doubt was to deny any attempt to found science on probability, in favor of science being founded on absolute certainty. Hence, Descartes’ use of the geometrical method can best be understood as an attempt to devise a method of discovery that is analytic and heuristic and not deductive and synthetic as in Spinoza’s case.

For Rosenzweig, each one of the three Nothings is initially a way of referring to one of the three elements as a hypothetical principle. Other philosophers besides Hegel, such as Plotinus or Spinoza, attempted to comprehend the All as Wirklichkeit, or what is actual, with the goal of determining what we should do in and with that comprehended reality. Rosenzweig begins with the assumption that an examination of how we think about what reality is and how it functions conditions our actions in and with that reality.
