A groundbreaking vintage of latest philosophy for the 1st time in English translation
Between 1961 and 1970, Emanuele Severino used to be subjected to an intensive research via the Vatican Inquisition. The “fundamental incompatibility” pointed out among his suggestion and Christian doctrine ejected him from his place as Professor of Philosophy on the Catholic collage in Milan. The Essence of Nihilism, released in 1972, used to be the 1st publication to stick to his expulsion, and it verified Severino’s preeminent place in the the constellation of up to date philosophy.
In this groundbreaking and vintage book—now for the 1st time on hand in English—Severino reinterprets the background of Western philosophy because the unfolding of “the maximum folly,” that's, of the assumption that “things pop out of not anything and fall again into nothing.” based on Severino, this sort of more often than not Western knowing of truth has ended in a conviction that there's a radical “nothingness” to life. In flip, this justifies the therapy of the area as an item of exploitation, degradation and destruction.
To circulate past Western nihilism, indicates Severino, we needs to to start with “return to Parmenides.” becoming a member of forces with the main venerable of Greek philosophers, Severino confutes nihilism’s “path of night”, and develops a brand new philosophy grounded at the precept of the eternity of fact and of each unmarried existent thing.
