Musil, Hermeneutics, Modernity

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

However, his apprpriation of the Romantic negotiation of literature as completion of philosophy offers theoretic possibilities for generating understanding of modernity in the absence of foundational discourses.
