sinopsis

what do Socrates, Hypatia, Giordano Bruno, Thomas More, and Jan Patocka have in common?
Dying for ideas explores the limit-situation in wich philosophers find themselves when the only means of persuasion they can use is their own dying bodies and the public spectacle of their death. The book tells the story of the philospher's encounter with death as seen from several angles: the tradition of philosophy as an art of living; the body as the site of self-transcending; death as a classical philosophical topic; taming death and self-fashioning; finally, the philospher's scapegoating and their live performance of a martyr's death, followed by apotheosis and disappearance into myth.
