Riassunto: This lucid new study offers a detailed and critical exposition of German metaphysics and philosophy of logic during the past century. Julian Roberts sets his argument in the context of the current debate between 'analytical' and 'continental' philosophers. The book centres on the problem of reflection - exploration of the boundaries of rationality, or (in analytical terms) of the 'limits of thought' - which Roberts claims lies at the heart of both traditions. Roberts concentrates on the work of Frege, Wittgenstein, Husserl, the Erlangen School, and Habermas. In the course of his examination, however, he also considers philosophers ranging from Russell and Quine to Putnam and Heidegger. Roberts argues that the technical advances of modern logic have not, as is sometimes believed by analytical thinkers, generated uniquely modern problems that can only be dealt with by a correspondingly modernist philosophy, for the problem of reflection was already at the heart of Kant's critical project and of his confrontation with Leibniz. If we recover this earlier debate, says Roberts, we can develop a more adequate understanding not merely of its echoes in the twentieth century, but of the role and contribution of metaphysics and of philosophy in general. 'The Logic of Reflection' is intended for advanced undergraduates across disciplines - in philosophy, the social sciences, literary theory and theology. Julian Roberts was educated at Cambridge. He has taught in London and Cambridge, and was Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Bayreuth. He has published 'Walter Benjamin' (1982) and 'German Philosophy. An Introduction' (1988).
