About the Author

Fred Dallmayr is Packey J. Dee Professor Emeritus in the departments of philosophy and political science at the University of Notre Dame.


Fred Dallmayr's new book is an extraordinary contribution to political theory and philosophy. In Against Apocalypse: Recovering Humanity's Wholeness, Dallmayr develops an ontological conception of human solidarity which allows him to put into question and also reconfigure some of the most basic notions of political theory such as freedom, individuality, and solidarity. By so doing, he calls for no less than entirely new beginnings of the political imagination. This is a must read for all who continue to heed the call of justice for a better world-for all of the inhabitants, human and nonhuman, of this planet. -- Drucilla Cornell, Rutgers University Moved by his relentless passion for global peace and justice, Fred Dallmayr has, over many years, engaged in an extraordinary intellectual journey of cross-cultural dialogue. When the world seems to be in an unprecedented state of conflict, disorder and injustice, Against Apocalypse reminds us that a different, more humane and peaceful world needs also something of a Heideggerian Abendland (evening land) attitude: the patient cultivation of a new humanism of dialogue between the philosophical and religious traditions of the world, in dialogue with nature and the divine, to recover the deep relational sense of humankind's wholeness and unity. -- Fabio Petito, University of Sussex
