Intentionality - Source of Intelligibility

The Genesis of Intentionality

Prof. Ernest Joos

Throughout the work the author pursues one objective: to show that intentionality belongs to the fabric of reality, hence it is also the source of the intelligibility of this reality. As such, it has an ontological status and a causality of its own which enables it to play its role as intermediary between the knowing subject and the object of thought. This interdependence is responsible for its nature and the two-way movement expressed by intentio intellectus and intentio rei whose efficacy widens or reduces the scope of what is considered as intelligible by a philosophical doctrine.

An author engaged in ideological battles is rarely valued correctly during his lifetime. George Lukács died in 1971, hence a reassessment of his work is warranted. The essays published in this volume provide a philosophical evaluation of Lukács's work according to the criterion of the consistency of his arguments dealing with Hegel, Marx, Alienation and Aesthetics.

Heidegger wanted to take Nietzsche seriously as a thinker. But as a thinker or philosopher Nietzsche can be accused of inconsistency. Even his main objective - the transvaluation all values - may make no sense. This author wants to view Nietzsche as a poet. He opposes the universality of abstract truth to the poetic truth which is the incarnation of the absolute in the concrete and valid only as meaning in a particular context. A large part of the book is devoted to the application of this theory, hence the book is both a hermeneutic study and a practical guide for the interpretation of Nietzsche's controversial topics such as the Death of God, marriage, life and death, or - woman and the Superman ( Übermensch). Part Three deals with Hermeneutics and Metaphysics, then with Heidegger, Nietzsche and Metaphysics.
