Opposition and Philosophy.


Opposition and Philosophy

Piotr Hoffman

Marquette University Press


174 pages


Marquette Studies in Philosophy; Number 87


Hoffman shows how the concept of opposition can be instrumental in solving some of the notorious problems philosophers have been grappling with and continue to grapple with. He does not search for new problems to take on, he says, but offers new solutions to problems identified and analyzed by other philosophers, because he does not find their own solutions satisfactory. What is new is the approach he advocates for dealing with three key issues he has selected as the testing ground of his theory. They are particularity, intersubjectivity, and temporality.
