The Paradox of Subjectivity: The Self in the Transcendental Tradition [NOOK Book]

Overview

Much effort in recent philosophy has been devoted to attacking the "metaphysics of the subject."

Carr maintains that the transcendental tradition, often misinterpreted as a mere alternative version of the metaphysics of the subject, is in fact itself directed against such a metaphysics.
