Hans Jonas: Life, Technology and the Horizons of Responsibility on ‘one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century’.
Hans Jonas: Life, Technology and the Horizons of Responsibility
‘I’m very happy,’ writes Lewis Coyne ‘to announce that my monograph, Hans Jonas: Life, Technology and the Horizons of Responsibility, is out now with Bloomsbury Academic’.
Hans Jonas was one of the most important German-Jewish philosophers of the 20th century. A student of Martin Heidegger and close friend of Hannah Arendt, Jonas advanced the fields of phenomenology and practical ethics in ways that are just beginning to be appreciated in the English-speaking world. The present book should be of interest to those working on Continental philosophy (phenomenology in particular), practical ethics (especially environmental ethics) and the history of Jewish philosophers.
