English | July 1st, 2007 | ASIN: B005VRKQZ6, ISBN: 0826495621 | 192 Pages | EPUB | 0.26 MB

'Thought always exaggerates', Hannah Arendt writes. The question of exaggeration becomes a philosophical question when thought endeavours to clarify the ways in which it relates to limits. If its disclosing force depends on exaggeration, so does the confusion to which it can fall prey. This book analyses concepts such as truth and trust, practices such as politics and art, experiences such as the formation of a life line and its erasure, from the viewpoint of exaggeration.

English | September 7th, 2017 | ASIN: B07563WC8H, ISBN: 1350003972 | 224 Pages | EPUB | 0.38 MB
