    Mihai Sora and the Traditions of Romanian Philosophy.Virgil Nemoianu - 1990 - Review of Metaphysics 43 (3):591 - 605.
    ROMANIAN CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY do not constitute themselves in an orderly and continuous system of their own. Nor are they indispensable to the serious student of central human reflections and searches for truth. Their real interest is a historical one and, in the light of the globalized civilization of the twentieth century, one of cultural geography. A national community placed at the margins of Western culture, pertaining to it, but not quite able to synchronize its intellectual or (...)

    An Ancient Quarrel Continued: The Troubled Marriage of Philosophy and LiteratureDostoevsky the Thinker.Virgil Nemoianu - 2004 - Review of Metaphysics 57 (3):637-638.
    The book of Mackey is actually a collection of analytical articles framed by a couple of explanatory theoretical essays. He writes with varying degrees of judiciousness about critics like Northrop Frye and I. A. Richards, and writers like Thomas Pynchon and Robert Coover, about science fiction and courtly love. Unfortunately, the foundation of these explorations is less than clear and firm. Mackey is convinced that philosophy at some point supplanted literature by positing a “naturalistic and conceptual” language to the vatic, (...)

    Am Rande Europas. Studien Zur Österreichisch-Ungarischen Philosophiegeschichte.Virgil Nemoianu - 1989 - Review of Metaphysics 42 (4):847-848.
    This is essentially a study in the philosophy of culture, which tries to define the specific East-Central European modes of thinking as dimensions of a "peripheral" identity. The first chapter argues that an "anthropological conservatism" underlies much of the intellectual evolution of the Danubian area in the last two hundred years or so. Nyíri traces five successive waves of conservatism beginning with the circle of St. Clemens Maria Hofbauer and Friedrich Schlegel soon after 1800 and going all the way to (...)

    To begin with the bad news. Mahoney does not write well. He moves in perplexing ways from the stylistic register of the journalistic, to that of the scholarly, to political philosophy and back again. His knowledge of Russian seems shaky or doubtful. The key work of Georges Nivat is given a handsome accolade but is never engaged seriously. It is not clear whether he is aware of the publication of the third volume of The Red Wheel, March 1917, in the (...)

  8. Blaise Pascal on Skepticism and Order.Virgil Martin Nemoianu - 2002 - Dissertation, University of Toronto (Canada)
    This work is a study of Blaise Pascal's Pensees. It proposes to show the way in which Pascal's philosophy of mind---his conception of order and the relation of reason, the emotions, and the will to the self---which emerges from his skepticism, can be used to draw out his views on morality, despite the fragmentary state of the work. The thesis begins with a consideration of the three major philosophical precursors to Pascal's project: Augustine, Montaigne, and Descartes. It continues with an (...)

    Dionysus Reborn. Play and the Aesthetic Dimension in Modern Philosophical and Scientific Discourse.Virgil Nemoianu - 1990 - Review of Metaphysics 44 (2):439-441.
    Spariosu, a professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Georgia, is really a philosopher of culture. In this book, in his earlier Literature, Mimesis, and Play: Essays in Literary Theory, and in different articles, he outlines a theory influenced by Eric Havelock, E. R. Dodds, Werner Jaeger, and Rene Girard, but which in fact is quite original. The author argues in the first half of his book that in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Western culture accommodates two opposing concepts (...)

    Dávila, one the few truly interesting thinkers of contemporary South America, was born and died in Bogota, Colombia. He led the life of a gentleman of leisure and wrote very little. His production is reduced to three books, with almost identical titles, a couple of essays, and little else. His work was virtually out of print until the publication of the current anthology, and it is little known in the West. Small publishers in Austria and Italy brought out about 10 (...)

    Probably the first striking feature of this book is to be found in its title. “Late modernity” is incomparably more adequate and philosophically more intelligent than “late capitalism/imperialism” which means nothing except a pointless bow in the direction of an intolerable form of totalitarianism. The second feature is the name of the author herself, one of the few true political philosophers at a time when “consultants” and pundits active in the so-called field of politology are a dime a dozen.

    Fictional Worlds.Virgil Nemoianu - 1988 - Review of Metaphysics 41 (4):845-846.
    There are several attempts to build a theory of art starting from analytical philosophy, the best of which is probably the one provided by Nelson Goodman. Pavel's work is the first attempt to write a theory of literature from the premisses of analytical philosophy. Pavel, whose earlier work was influenced among others by Eco, Greimas, Hrushovsky and Brooke-Rose, begins with an analysis of recent philosophical positions regarding fiction and distinguishes on one side the hard-line "segregationist" position of Bertrand Russell which (...)

    It is a good while since French intellectual life has seen the publication of a one-volume history of modern philosophy. The author of the present book is young. He has previously written on Tocqueville, Schopenhauer and Bataille, and has also proposed a renewed version of humanism, based upon a combination of science, ecologism, and the traditional values of literary culture. The present volume is interesting both in its structure and in its overall intentions. Up to a point Besnier accepts the (...)

    The body of poetry published by Coleridge during his lifetime was comparatively small. Its importance in terms of innovative merit was recognized almost immediately and so critical discussions are abundant. It took a good while even for specialists, let alone for the wider audiences, to recognize that his poetic output was just a fraction of his theoretical prose; it took even longer to get the latter completely in print; it took longest to admit that Coleridge was a quite significant thinker (...)

    One of the most adroit movements of the ideological “establishment” in the United States is to have occupied the channels of communication between national groups of intellectuals. By this arbitrary maneuver a certain impression of isolation is given to those who have the forlorn courage to oppose prevailing intellectual idola. The reader may know about philosophical oppositions inside America, but he rarely hears about similar movements outside. Yet, ironically, these are alive and very eloquent.

    Although Plesu started his career as an art historian, he soon came under the influence of Constantin Noica, a major Romanian thinker who had tried to combine Platonism with a rather idiosyncratic form of existentialism. Plesu was briefly a minister for culture in the first post-revolutionary Romanian cabinet, and thereafter worked as an editor and as an educator; he is currently the president of a small private graduate international college in Bucharest. He is the author of a number of books (...)

    Sheehan deals with relatively recent authors—Conrad, D. H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, Beckett. He is critical of humanism, by which he seems to understand a kind of anthropocentric and limitative image of human beings, imposed on the public by narrative, among other things. As against this, he is setting the animal, the mechanical, and the transcendental, but the definition of the latter is, to say the least, bizarre—“the ability to evade compromise and contingency”. Reformulating narrativity is, according to Sheehan, the best (...)

    Michael Oakeshott: An Introduction.Virgil Nemoianu - 2005 - Review of Metaphysics 59 (2):421-423.
    Franco’s book is meticulous and objective, but it does underline two points. The first is that Oakeshott cannot be portrayed simply as a “conservative”; thus T. S. Eliot was a more typical conservative than Oakeshott, the latter being rather a conservative Whig, in the tradition of Edmund Burke and Sir Robert Peel. The second is that throughout his life, Oakeshott, far from being an agnostic and religious indifferentist, interacted with religious theories and responded to them, even though this is not (...)

    In my previous short review of the Balthasar guide penned by the Dominican Prior of Blackfriars, Cambridge, I had included the complaint that no reference to Theodramatik is made in the discussion of the great Aesthetics. The criticism was vain, as the current book must have been well underway. In many respects this is perhaps an even better study than the previous one, and will most certainly contribute in great measure to our in-depth understanding of the innovative vision proposed by (...)

    Patapievici is rather young as philosophers go, barely forty. He gained a wider audience in Romania by his philosophical column in the intellectual weekly quaintly called “22,” as well as by a couple of books written mostly in the mode of the “philosophical journal.” The present book triggered enormous and passionate controversy upon its publication, not least because it revealed fully and openly what had been sensed only by relatively few specialized readers until then: namely that Patapievici may be said (...)

    Marga is the Dean of the school of philosophy at the University of Cluj, and his study seems to mark an interesting change in Romanian philosophy. In the last sixty or seventy years philosophy had been in that part of the world primarily Platonic, Hegelian, or existentialist, with an undisguised suspicion towards technological and rationalist orientations. There are a number of signs that the almost exclusive commitment to idealist modes of argument is being replaced in Romania by a much more (...)

    This book constructs a theory of ruins that celebrates their vitality and unity in aesthetic experience. Its argument draws upon over 100 illustrations prepared in 40 countries. Ruins flourish as matter, form, function, incongruity, site, and symbol. Ruin underlies cultural values in cinema, literature and philosophy. Finally, ruin guides meditations upon our mortality and endangered world.

  40. The Insufficiency of the Many Gods Objection to Pascal’s Wager.Virgil Martin Nemoianu - 2010 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 84 (3):513-530.
    Perhaps the best known criticism of Pascal’s wager is the many Gods objection. As so often with anglophone criticisms of Pascal, the many Gods objectiontypically treats the wager in isolation from the rest of Pascal’s thought. In this case, the truncated reading has issued in the view that Pascal was indifferent toor ignorant of the possibility that Gods other than the one described by Catholic theology might exist. This view is false. Even a cursory glance beyond the wagerfragment reveals that (...)

Against these reductive misunderstandings, I provide a detailed reconstruction of Pascal's political thought, drawn from the Pensées and other texts. I show that Pascal develops an account of two distinct and hierarchized orders of justice: a temporal order and an eternal order. Pascal (...)

    Although nowadays aesthetics tends to be marginalized, all the great philosophers of the world, from Plato and Aristotle on, through St. Bonaventure and Pseudo-Dionysus the Areopagite, to Kant and Hegel clearly thought that the Beautiful ought to be in close companionship with the True and the Good. The only open question remains when, specifically, aesthetics came to be recognized as an autonomous or self-controlled discipline.

    Balthasar was included belatedly in the Catholic Encyclopedia and until around 1980 his name was hardly known among Anglo-American theologians, let alone among intellectuals at large. Now the situation is dramatically changed, partly due to the tenacious work of prominent thinkers such as Schindler and Fessio, partly to Papal influence. In any case, new monographs appear yearly.
