The Ethics of Time: A Phenomenology and Hermeneutics of by John Panteleimon Manoussakis

By John Panteleimon Manoussakis

The Ethics of Time utilizes the assets of phenomenology and hermeneutics to discover this under-charted box of philosophical inquiry. Its rigorous analyses of such phenomena as ready, reminiscence, and the physique are performed phenomenologically, because it engages in a hermeneutical examining of such classical texts as Augustine's Confessions and Sophocles's Oedipus Rex, between others.

The Ethics of Time takes heavily phenomenology's declare of a cognizance either constituting time and being constituted through time. This declare has a few vital implications for the "ethical” self or, relatively, for the ways that this kind of self trained via time, may perhaps come to appreciate anew the issues of imperfection and moral goodness. even if a strictly philosophical endeavour, this publication engages knowledgeably and deftly with matters throughout literature, theology and the humanities and may be of curiosity to students all through those disciplines.
