    Body and World.Samuel Todes, Hubert L. Dreyfus & Piotr Hoffman - 2001 - MIT Press.
    Body and World is the definitive edition of a book that shouldnow take its place as a major contribution to contemporary existentialphenomenology. Samuel Todes goes beyond Martin Heidegger and MauriceMerleau-Ponty in his description of how independent physical natureand experience are united in our bodily action. His account allows himto preserve the authority of experience while avoiding the tendencytoward idealism that threatens both Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty.Todes emphasizes the complex structure of the human body ;front/back asymmetry, the need to balance in a (...)

    Heidegger and the Problem of Idealism.Piotr Hoffman - 2000 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 43 (4):403 – 411.
    Was Heidegger a 'realist' or an 'idealist'? The issue has been and continues to be hotly debated in Heidegger scholarship. Here it is argued that the much more desirable realistic interpretation of Heidegger can be sustained, provided his theory of moods is given its due. Moods, I argue, are not only 'equiprimordial' with Dasein's understanding of being, but are also irreducible to the latter. It is often held - correctly, as it seems to the author - that Heidegger's idealism is (...)

    The Quest for Power: Hobbes, Descartes, and the Emergence of Modernity.Piotr Hoffman - 1995 - Humanities Press.
    In this original analysis, Hoffman shows how the modern self's drive for total autonomy and independence defines the relations of human selves as essentially violent. He further argues that the notion of violence underlies some of the key components of mainstream modern philosophizing.

    Freedom, Equality, Power the Ontological Consequences of the Political Philosophies of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau.Piotr Hoffman - 1999 - Peter Lang.
    The concept of power shapes both the political philosophy and the general worldview of the modern age. For this reason, two areas of philosophy - ontology and political philosophy - which were hitherto treated separately, must be brought together. Freedom, Equality, Power brings out the ontological framework shared by the political philosophies of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau. In the last chapter, the author uses the results of his earlier analyses as the stepping stone for developing some themes belonging to ontology (...)

    Violence in Modern Philosophy.Piotr Hoffman - 1989 - University of Chicago Press.
    Following on the arguments adumbrated in his previous works, Piotr Hoffman here argues that the notion of and concern with violence are not limited to political philosophy but in fact form the essential component of philosophy in general. The acute awareness of the ever-present possibility of violence, Hoffman claims, filters into and informs ontology and epistemology in ways that require careful analysis. In his previous book, Doubt, Time, Violence , Hoffman explored the theme of violence in relation to Descartes' problematic (...)
