The Collapse of Philosophy and Its Rebirth
An Intellectual History with Special Attention to Husserl, Richert, and Bakhtin
Mikhail Bakhtin has survived both his boom and his cult, and is now a twentieth-century "classic". His intellectual debts and philosophical contexts are the material for this work. Essentially, it provides the necessary background for an entire branch of Balkan Studies that is pursuing the secular and theological sources for the powerful philosophy of the Word that was often the conduit for salvaged parts of the ambitious projects of the "German Mandarins."
