The Critique of Pure Modernity: Hegel, Heidegger, and After

Publication: University of Chicago Press, 1987. (Chinese translation, 2004)

This book analyzes “modern” selves and institutions as based on distinguishing form from content, and then criticizes that distinction. I use ideas from Hegel and Heidegger, study the ways they both try to find a context for modern selves and institutions that cannot be described in standard modern terms. Then by confronting their differences I try to find a space for new thinking.
