Overview

The Paradox of Subjectivity: The Self in the Transcendental Tradition by David Carr (3)

Challenging prevailing interpretations of the development of modern philosophy, this book proposes a reinterpretation of the transcendental tradition, as represented primarily by Kant and Husserl, and counters Heidegger's influential reading of these philosophers. Author David Cart defends their subtle and complex transcendental investigations of the self and the life of subjectivity, and seeks to revive an understanding of what Husserl calls "the paradox of subjectivity" -- an appreciation for the rich and sometimes contradictory character of experience.
