  1. Charles B. Guignon (ed.) (2006). The Cambridge Companion to Heidegger. Cambridge University Press.
    Martin Heidegger is now widely recognized as one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century.

His thought has contributed to the recent turn to hermeneutics and to current postmodernism and poststructuralism. Moreover, the disclosure of his deep involvement in Nazism has provoked much debate about the relation of philosophy to politics. This new edition brings to the fore new works, as well as new approaches (...)

  2. Charles B. Guignon (2004). On Being Authentic. Routledge.
    "To thine own self be true." From Polonius's words in Hamlet right up to Oprah, we are constantly urged to look within. Why is being authentic the ultimate aim in life for so many people, and why does it mean looking inside rather than out? Is it about finding the "real" me, or something greater than me, even God? Thought-provoking and with an astonishing range of references, On Being Authentic is a gripping journey into the self that begins with Socrates (...)

  3. Charles B. Guignon & David R. Hiley (eds.) (2003). Richard Rorty. Cambridge University Press.
    Arguably the most influential of all contemporary English-speaking philosophers Richard Rorty has transformed the way many inside and outside philosophy think about the discipline and the traditional ways of practising it. Drawing on a wide range of thinkers from Darwin and James to Quine, Wittgenstein, Heidegger and Derrida, Rorty has injected a bold anti-foundationalist vision into philosophical debate, into discussions in literary theory, communication studies, political theory and education, and, as public intellectual, into national debates about the responsibilities of America (...)

  8. Charles B. Guignon (1982). Saving the Differences: Gadamer and Rorty. PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1982:360 - 367.
    Bernstein's attempt to identify a convergence in the ethical and political implications of the writings of Gadamer and Rorty is found to be inadequate on two counts. First, by accepting the extreme antifoundationalism in Rorty, Bernstein tends to undermine the humanistic ideals he wishes to defend. And, second, the important differences in the conception of history in Gadamer and Rorty are concealed. It is argued that Gadamer's view of 'effective-history' offers a basis for enduring values which would not be possible (...)
