Foreword to the English Translation, by Creston Davis Preface Plato Aristotle Augustine Bruno Descartes Pascal Leibniz Kant Fichte Hegel Schelling Schopenhauer Kierkegaard Marx Nietzsche Husserl Wittgenstein Sartre Foucault Notes Index
Peter Sloterdijk is not only an original thinker but is probably on the way to being one of the world's most prominent 'public philosophers.' In this book, he provides brief, highly charged, and colorful readings of the characters, lives, and ideas of leading Western philosophers. -- Carl Raschke, senior editor of the Journal for Cultural and Religious Theory Philosophical Temperaments is in fact a creative reworking of the idea of an introduction to philosophy. It invites readers to taste philosophy itself, to somehow catch that elusive sense of what it means to think. -- Ward Blanton, University of Kent
Peter Sloterdijk is professor of aesthetics and philosophy at the Institute of Design in Karlsruhe and teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. His numerous works include The Art of Philosophy: Wisdom as a Practice; Rage and Time: A Psychopolitical Investigation; and the best-selling Critique of Cynical Reason. Thomas Dunlap is also the translator of Wolfgang Benz's A Concise History of the Third Reich and Michael Stolleis's A History of Public Law in Germany, 1914-1945. Creston Davis is professor of philosophy at the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities in Skopje, Macedonia.
Overall, this is a scintillating introduction for Anglophone readers to a stimulating provocateur of contemporary European intellectual culture. Choice A highly engaging read. -- Dylan S Bailey Marx & Philosophy Review of Books
