The Unreasonable Silence of the World: Universal Reason and the Wreck of the Enlightenment Project - Avebury Series in Philosophy (Hardback)Gary Sauer-Thompson (author), Joseph Wayne Smith (author)
Hardback Published: 04/12/1997
This text aims to develop a postmodernist critique of philosophy - although not the postmodernism of literary philosophers such as Derrida. This postmodernism is one of ecological limitationism coupled with a practical commonsense "realism". The authors affirm the reality of the life-world and the primacy of practice against materialist, physicist and reductionists. They attempt to show that orthodox Anglo-American analytic philosophy is not merely incapable of completing its own quest to supply a regionally justified system of reality, but, more importantly, it fails as well to meet the challenges of the age.
