    The Civilizing Process - According to Mennell, Elias and Freud: A Critique.Harry Redner - 2015 - Thesis Eleven 127 (1):95-111.
    This article critiques theories of the civilizing process as expounded by its leading expositors: Mennell, Elias and Freud. It begins with a criticism of Stephen Mennell’s book The American Civilizing Process. This book relies on an even more famous work, Norbert Elias’s The Civilizing Process. Unfortunately, Mennell’s otherwise commendable attempt to capture American civilization in its historical scope and sociological complexity is misdirected because Eliasian theory is not applicable to America, as we will show, and, furthermore, offers a dubious account (...)

  6. A New Science of Representation: Towards an Integrated Theory of Representation in Science, Politics and Art.Harry Redner - 1994 - Westview Press.
    Redner (politics, Monash U., Melbourne, Australia) builds on the thesis that crucial changes in human cultural history correlate with fundamental transformations in modes of representation. He traces human development from primitive culture to that of the present age to construct a comprehensive theory of culture. His theory challenges some established approaches in disciplines such as philosophy, semiotics, sociology, political theory, aesthetics, and history itself.

  7. Malign Masters: Gentile, Heidegger, Lukács, Wittgenstein: Philosophy and Politics in the Twentieth Century.Harry Redner - 1997 - St. Martin's Press.
    A politically oriented study of the thought of the founders of the main schools of contemporary academic philosophy, those which dominate nearly all universities throughout the world. It concentrates on four key masters: Wittgenstein, who founded both Logical Positivism and the so-called Common Language or Analytic school; Heidegger, the acknowledged master of Hermeneutic Philosophy or the so-called Continental school; Lukacs, the founder of Hegelian Marxism and the leading Communist philosopher of the Soviet period; and, finally, the now lesser-known Gentile, the (...)

    Dialectics of Classicism: The Birth of Nazism From the Spirit of Classicism.Harry Redner - 2019 - Thesis Eleven 152 (1):19-37.
    This article is an attempt to revise and extend two prior conceptions: Adorno and Horkheimer’s dialectic of Enlightenment and Murphy and Robert’s dialectic of Romanticism. It traces a developmental trajectory within German Kultur, starting around the mid-18th century, that goes through three moments or phases: the Grecophilia of Goethe and Schiller, the Grecomania of Hölderlin, Schelling and early Hegel, and the Grecogermania of Wagner, Nietzsche and Heidegger. The latter provided the ideological underpinning of Hitler’s Nazism. Thus the paper aims to (...)

    Epistemic Responsibility.Harry Redner - 1988 - Review of Metaphysics 42 (1):134-135.
    In a review of the recent Heidegger controversy, Richard Rorty maintains that "as a human being Heidegger was a rather nasty piece of work--a coward and a liar, pretty much from first to last" but, nevertheless, that "Heidegger was as original a philosopher as we have had in this century." According to Rorty, "being an original philosopher is like being an original mathematician or an original microbiologist or a consummate chess master: it is the result of some neural kink that (...)

  16. In the Beginning Was the Deed: Reflections on the Passage of Faust.Harry Redner - 1982 - University of California Press.
    Now that the collective death of mankind has become a possibility, no other thought can remain unimpaired. Harry Redner traces historically the onset of this acute state of Nihilism from what might be called the Faustian revolution, symbolized by Faust's pronouncement “In the beginning was the Deed.” Redner reflects on the passage of the three main Fausts, from Marlowe’s to Goethe’s to Thomas Mann’s, and this reflection serves as the dramatic metaphor for a review of the relationship of Progress to (...)

    Hypothesis and the Spiral of Reflection.Harry Redner - 1991 - Review of Metaphysics 44 (3):662-663.
    These days every new departure in philosophy must be welcomed, even one that sounds old. Here at last is a philosopher who seems to take seriously Heisenberg's joke that the positivists are ready to engage in metamathematics, meta-language, meta-ethics and meta-anything until someone suggests meta-physics at which they gnash their teeth. But does Weissman wish to fly on "winged thought" to a new promised land of meta-physics or merely to take flight back to the old fleshpots of metaphysics? There are (...)

    Science and Politics: A Critique of Scientistic Conceptions of Knowledge and Society.Harry Redner - 2001 - Social Science Information 40 (4):515-544.
    The theory of a post-industrial knowledgeable society was accompanied by ambitious claims regarding the power and capacity of science in social planning and policy-making. These exaggerated claims are based on a number of cardinal errors concerning the relation between social scientific knowledge and social practice. These errors are exposed and refuted by reference to theories of the role of science in relation to politics to be found in the works of C.E. Lindblom and Gernot Böhme.
