Werner Hamacher: Für die Philologie & 95 Thesen zur Philologie (German > Russian)
These two texts by Werner Hamacher, the German philosopher and theorist of literature, became an instantaneous classic for scholars and lovers of philology after their publication in 2009, both in Europe and in the USA. They provide a new formulation for the program of philology as the fundamental linguistic practice. I am certain that Russian readers with an interest in literature and theory will find this book indispensable.
