Editorial Reviews


'... Pippin is one of the most original and imaginative philosophers now at work. ... I can think of no other philosopher writing today who is so consistently illuminating on such a wide range of topics. We can learn a lot from Pippin.' Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Book Description

The Persistence of Subjectivity examines several approaches to and critiques of the core notion in the self-undertanding and legitimation of the modern, "bourgeois" form of life: the free, reflective, self-determining subject. Since it is a relatively recent historical development that human beings think of themselves as individual centers of agency, and that one's entitlemen t to such a self-determining life is absolutely valuable, the issue at stake also involves the question of the historical location of philosophy.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Robert Pippin has a fluid ability that moves confidently upon the difficult German philosophical landscape of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and he has made himself into the go-to Hegel scholar in the U.S. over the past two decades. His writing is graceful with a certain ease, but has a tendency to glide and turn without enough horsepower in his voice to keep this reader's thoughts on the road ahead.
