Synopsis

Transcendental History defends the claim that historicality is the very condition for human knowledge, and hence that the human being is always strictly an historical being. This is a thesis vital to the present trajectory of European philosophy. Tracing its development from Kant and Hegel to Derrida and Agamben - in a tale of how transcendental and speculative philosophy gradually gave way to historical thinking in the shape of phenomenology, hermeneutics, and deconstruction - this book not only enriches our understanding of the history of philosophy, but also contributes to epistemology, the philosophy of history, and philosophical anthropology. Transcendental History also addresses itself to all those interested in the questions and controversies motivating contemporary European philosophy and its critical engagement with its past.
