This anthology of new essays by an international group of preeminent scholars explores the ground-breaking work of Hayden White, whose thought, beginning with his seminal Metahistory (1973), has revolutionized the way we think about the philosophy of history, historiography, narrative, and the relation between history and literature. Representing a variety of disciplines and approaches, the contributions to this volume testify to the far-reaching effects and significance of White's philosophy of history. Individual essays relate White's ideas to contemporary art, cognitive studies, Heideggerian hermeneutics, experimental history, Kant's transcendental philosophy, analytic philosophy of history, Marxist cultural theory, the Kantian sublime, and American academic historiography. A substantial introduction by the editor traces the genesis of White's philosophy of history, situating it with respect to both the Anglo-American and Continental traditions. The volume also features a previously unpublished essay by White, which offers a concise overview of his later thought, and a qCommentq written specifically for this volume, in which White revisits the question of the philosophy of history.Weissa#39;s German workers are in reality subalterns confronting the violence of a system of abstraction founded on the separation of mental and manual labor. ... and the labor expended in the signal act of dis-identification leading to the reunion of mental and manual work. ... German workers, who learned about resistance through history and myth as embodied in the statuary of the Pergamum Altar in Berlin.
