Re-reading interpretation : The way forward for an ethico-political engagement

Mummery, J. (2002) Re-reading interpretation : The way forward for an ethico-political engagement. Philosophy Today, 46 (3). pp. 313-322.

Abstract

Now if we might be inclined to endorse Heidegger's deconstruction of politics [and ethics] in modernity as being complicitous with a certain metaphysics of the will, a metaphysics which is ultimately hegemonic and destructive, we might also be willing to wonder whether the task of thinking that emerges from this diagnosis is not ultimately heading toward a philosophical dead end, one which, to be more specific, seems to rule out the very possibility of praxis.
