    Gianni Vattimo reexamines the roots of modernism and postmodernism in Nietzsche, Benjamin, and Heidegger.

    The transparent society.Gianni Vattimo - 1992 - Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press.
    "This book is of major importance to the debate on the postmodern question."--Jean François Lyotard. "This is Vattimo at his best--and at his best he is very, very good, which is to say, erudite, witty, engaging, and precise. I do not think anyone comes close to Vattimo in his ability to correlate complex philosophical issues and arguments, such as those of Heidegger or Benjamin on such topics as &.

    The Future of Religion.Gianni Vattimo & Richard Rorty - 2005 - Columbia University Press.
    Though coming from distinct intellectual traditions, Richard Rorty and Gianni Vattimo are united in their criticism of the metaphysical tradition. The challenges they put forward extend beyond philosophy and entail a reconsideration of the foundations of belief in God and the religious life. They urge that the rejection of metaphysical truth does not necessitate the death of religion. Instead it opens new ways of imagining what it is to be religious. This unique collaboration fuses pragmatism and hermeneutics and recognizes the (...)

  10. Beyond interpretation: the meaning of hermeneutics for philosophy.Gianni Vattimo - 1997 - Stanford, Calif.: Stanford University Press.
    Hermeneutics has had a pervasive influence on contemporary philosophy, social and cultural theory, literary criticism, and aesthetics. In this book one of Europe's foremost contemporary philosophers provides hermeneutics with a fresh relevance and a substantive account of its philosophical meaning for science, ethics, religion, and art. Vattimo argues for a reading of hermeneutics that radicalises it according to what the author calls its 'nihilistic vocation', a term referring to the interpretive character of truth and taken from Nietzsche's statement that there (...)

    Hermeneutic Communism: From Heidegger to Marx.Gianni Vattimo & Santiago Zabala - 2011 - Cambridge University Press.
    Having lost much of its political clout and theoretical power, communism no longer represents an appealing alternative to capitalism. In its original Marxist formulation, communism promised an ideal of development, but only through a logic of war, and while a number of reformist governments still promote this ideology, their legitimacy has steadily declined since the fall of the Berlin wall. Separating communism from its metaphysical foundations, which include an abiding faith in the immutable laws of history and an almost holy (...)

    Nihilism and Emancipation: Ethics, Politics, and Law.Gianni Vattimo - 2004 - Columbia University Press.
    A daring marriage of philosophy and practical politics, Gianni Vattimo takes on some of the most pressing questions of our time: Is it still possible to talk of moral imperatives, individual rights, or political freedom? Are these values still relevant in today's world? Vattimo argues that nihilism is not the absence of meaning but the recognition of a plurality of meanings; it is not the end of civilization but the beginning of new social paradigms. Nihilism is an ethical doctrine in (...)

    An Ethics for Today: Finding Common Ground Between Philosophy and Religion.Richard Rorty, Jeffrey W. Robbins & Gianni Vattimo - 2010 - Cambridge University Press.
    Richard Rorty is famous, maybe even infamous, for his philosophical nonchalance. His groundbreaking work not only rejects all theories of truth but also dismisses modern epistemology and its preoccupation with knowledge and representation. At the same time, the celebrated pragmatist believed there could be no universally valid answers to moral questions, which led him to a complex view of religion rarely expressed in his writings. In this posthumous publication, Rorty, a strict secularist, finds in the pragmatic thought of John Dewey, (...)

    Dialogue with Nietzsche.Gianni Vattimo - 2006 - Columbia University Press.
    For more than forty years, Gianni Vattimo has been a leading participant in the postwar turn that has brought Nietzsche back to the center of philosophical enquiry. In this collection of his essays on the subject, which is a dialogue both with Nietzsche and with the Nietzschean tradition, Vattimo explores the German philosopher's most important works and discusses his views on the Ubermensch, time, history, truth, hermeneutics, ethics, and aesthetics. He also presents a different, more "Italian" Nietzsche, one that diverges (...)

    Il soggetto e la maschera: Nietzsche e il problema della liberazione.Gianni Vattimo - 1974 - Milano: Bompiani.
    La filosofia di Nietzsche, spesso oggetto di letture improprie e talvolta devianti o limitative, è al centro di questo illuminante saggio di Vattimo. A suo avviso, il problema principale posto dal filosofo tedesco è quello della necessaria allegoricità e profeticità del pensiero. Analizzando la strumentalizzazione delle dottrine di Nietzsche a opera delle teorie nazionalsocialiste, Vattimo mette in luce, oltre ai punti di forza, anche le debolezze di un pensiero tutto incentrato sul tema della liberazione. Un'interpretazione di un classico che si (...)

    In this 2017 conversation, Gianni Vattimo discusses with Paolo Diego Bubbio the core themes of his own philosophical journey. Vattimo first comments on the legacy of his mentor Luigi Pareyson and on the differences between Pareyson’s conception of the relation between truth and interpretation and his own. Vattimo and Bubbio then elaborate on the return to Hegel and the possibility of a “hermeneuticized” Hegelianism. The participants also discuss Vattimo’s view of religion and the role that the Christian notion of caritas (...)

    The Responsibility of the Philosopher.GianniHG Vattimo - 2010 - Columbia University Press.
    Over the course of his career, Gianni Vattimo has assumed a number of public and private identities and has pursued multiple intellectual paths. He seems to embody several contradictions, at once defending and questioning religion and critiquing and serving the state. Yet the diversity of his life and thought form the very essence of, as he sees it, the vocation and responsibility of the philosopher. In a world that desires quantifiable results and ideological expediency, the philosopher becomes the vital interpreter (...)

    Interpreting the World Is Transforming the World.Gianni Vattimo & Paolo Diego Bubbio - 2020 - Journal of Continental Philosophy 1 (1):77-84.
    Vattimo argues that the core of Gadamer’s hermeneutics resides in the identification of interpreting with changing the world, and analyzes the ontological turn in hermeneutics in light of such identification. Vattimo advocates for a radical reading of Gadamer’s claim “Being, which can be understood, is language” and maintains that hermeneutics requires a profound revolution in ontology, overcoming the idea of Being as a given object “out there”. In light of the dialogue that Gadamer’s Truth and Method establishes with Heidegger’s Being (...)

    Of Reality: The Purposes of Philosophy.Gianni Vattimo - 2016 - New York: Columbia University Press.
    We think it is wise to accept reality, rather than fight for something that does not exist or might never be. But in Of Reality, Gianni Vattimo condemns this complacency, with its implicit support of the status quo. Instead he urges us to never stop questioning, contrasting, or overcoming reality, which is not natural, inevitable, or objective. Reality is a construct, reflecting, among other things, our greed, biases, and tendencies toward violence. It is no accident, Vattimo argues, that the call (...)

    The Hermeneutic Nature of Analytic Philosophy: A Study of Ernst Tugendhat.Santiago Zabala & Gianni Vattimo - 2008 - Columbia University Press.
    Gianni Vattimo and Santiago Zabala recast Karl Marx's theories at a time when capitalism's metaphysical moorings are buckling. Leaving aside the ideal of development and the general call for revolution, hermeneutic communism relies on interpretation rather than truth and proves more flexible in different contexts. It motivates a resistance to capitalism's inequalities yet intervenes against violence and authoritarianism by emphasizing the interpretative nature of truth. Paralleling Vattimo and Zabala's work on the weakening of religion, Hermeneutic Communism realizes the effective potential (...)
