Overview

De Oliveira's (ethics and political philosophy, Porto Alegre, Brazil) main purpose is "to articulate a philosophical discourse that addresses the methodological problematic lying at the critical intersection of archaeology and genealogy in Michel Foucault's conception of modernity." He builds his theory through a reconstruction of Kant's critique of metaphysics, discussions of HegelOs critique of Kant, Nietzsche's critique of Kant, Nietzsche's aestheticist critique of Christianity, and a reexamination of Foucault's genealogical account of modern ethics.
