Luther. The Origin of Modern Self-Consciousness - Lectures, Vol. 12 Paperback / softback
If we are to understand the specifically modern function of self-consciousness, we must first look to the origins of the concept.
Among the key thinkers who elaborated on self-consciousness was the German monk and theologian Martin Luther.
Reiner Schuermann's writings and lectures on Luther therefore offer an innovative reading of the systematic role of self-consciousness in both premodern and modern cultures.
The twelfth volume in a planned twenty-nine-part series, Reiner Schuermann: Luther.
The Origin of Modern Self-Consciousness sees Schuermann tracing Luther's conception of the rise of self-consciousness as the subjective reference point.
Schuermann then explores this conception in conversation with both the Cartesian cogito and Kantian apperception.
