Philosophy of Exaggeration

Full Product Description

This new book addresses the question of the philosophical relevance of exaggeration and discusses key European philosophers and writers such as Adorno, Agamben, Arendt, Benjamin, Deleuze, Derrida, Freud, Kant, Hegel, Levinas and Wittgenstein

'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.

Philosophy of Exaggeration by Alexander Garcia Duttmann was published by Continuum in April 2007 and is our 56164th best seller. The ISBN for Philosophy of Exaggeration is 9780826495624.
