  3. John Grumley (2005). Hegel, Habermas and the Spirit of Critical Theory. Critical Horizons 6 (1):87-99.score: 240.0
    This paper explores the complex relation between Hegel and Habermas. Centring the discussion around the key themes of philosophy, modernity and political philosophy, it argues for a gradual re-approachment of Habermas towards Hegel. In the final section on critical theory, it takes up the question of the spirit of this theory to offer a more trenchant critique of Habermas' theoretical short-coming from this perspective.

  4. John Grumley (2008). New Adventures in the Dialectic of Humanism: Todorov, Sebald and Agamben. Critical Horizons 9 (2):189-213.score: 240.0
    This paper attempts to assess the state of the contemporary debate over humanism. Beginning with a brief recap of the main historical meanings of the concept of humanism itself, it details both the most recent articulation of the humanist standpoint in the work of Tzvetan Todorov and his "critical humanism" and the most potent anti-humanist replies in W.G. Sebald and Giorgio Agamben. While concerned to critically evaluate these new constellations of the debate, its main contention is not to wholly endorse (...)

  5. John Grumley (2011). Dialogue with the Dead: Sebald, Creatureliness, and the Philosophy of Mere Life. The European Legacy 16 (4):505 - 518.score: 240.0
    The idea of a ?dialogue with the dead? strikes us by turns as both impossible and intriguing. Yet, what can be really meant by it is far from clear. This essay attempts to explore this idea in the work of novelist W. G. Sebald. It examines the scope and the meaning of such an interchange in his works and connects this theme to his wider explorations of ?creaturely life.? It also links this particular dimension of Sebald's notion of ?creaturely? or (...)

  6. John Grumley (2001). From the Agora to the Coffee-House: Heller's Quest for Philosophical Radicalism. Critical Horizons 2 (2):255-282.score: 240.0
    This paper considers Agnes Heller's attempt to construct a post Marxist radical philosophy. It examines the two main phases of this project: beginning with her late seventies A Radical Philosophy, it charts her development towards the position she now characterises as reflective post-modernism. It shows that despite a constant commitment to rational critique, Heller's concept of philosophical radicalism has shifted from an emphasis on total critique to that of maintaining balance between the rival technological and historical imaginations that exercise a (...)

  13. John Grumley (2008). Agnes Heller's Existential Ethics and Bare Life. The European Legacy 13 (6):703-713.score: 240.0
    The following paper explicates and critically analyses the existential ethics of the reflective postmodernist phase in the work of Agnes Heller. Beginning with a brief summary of the biographical and theoretical roots of her development, it goes on to analyse the meaning of her key slogan of ?turning contingency into destiny.? After elaborating her version of the ?existential leap? and her later attempts to refine her position in An Ethics of Personality, the paper will employ some literary lives from W. (...)

  14. John Grumley (1999). A Utopian Dialectic of Needs? Heller's Theory of Radical Needs. Thesis Eleven 59 (1):53-72.score: 240.0
    The concept of `radical needs' has been a constant element in Heller's social philosophy over the last 25 years despite the fact that her own perspective moved progressively away from Marxian philosophical anthropology towards the position that she now characterizes as reflective post-modernism. This article charts this theoretical journey with a close examination of her articulation of the concept of radical needs in various phases of her work. Beginning with an attempt to rescue Marxism from the clutches of objectivism and (...)

  15. John Grumley (2003). Exploring the Options in No-Man's Land Heller and Markus on the Antinomies of Modern Culture. Thesis Eleven 75 (1):25-38.score: 240.0
    This paper compares the analysis of the antinomies of modern culture in the work of Agnes Heller and György Markus. It is particularly concerned with Heller’s innovative introduction of a third optative concept of culture as cultural conversation. The rationale, contours and diagnosis linked to this normative concept are explored and contrasted to the historicising alternative presented in Markus. It is argued that some weaknesses in Heller’s account are intimately linked to the utopian aspiration of her understanding of philosophy.
