From Plato to Kant, philosophers have demanded that the sensuous and corporeal aspects of existence be circumscribed by rational conditions and properties.

Without these, the sensuous is unintelligible. This elevation of the ability to reason as quintessentially human has obscured efforts to acknowledge the pivotal role the historical imagination has in grounding experience. In The Philosophical Uses of History, Gabriel Ricci explores the opposite tendency, from Vico to Heidegger, to emphasize temporal and historical foundations of human consciousness.Riccis goal is to demonstrate the reciprocity of history and philosophy.

He challenges the epistemological construction of the subject-object relationship and the facile dualism originating from Descartes. Arguing that consciousness must be defined in time and space, he shows how Vicos philosophy of humanity, with its historical epistemology, resurrects the practical implications of ancient philosophys demand that knowledge and truth derive from a productive process.

Ricci analyzes Heideggers philosophy as the modern embodiment of the temporality of consciousness, and he demonstrates the origins of his particular interpretation of human existence in Rickerts and Windelbands delineation of the historical and natural sciences.Ricci links their influence to Heideggers dissent over Rankes objectivist methodology, which ended with Heiddeggers emphasis of the historical character of human existence.

Finally, the author argues for the compatibility of Heideggers early existential analytic and his later investigation of poetry and his critique of the technological idiom which had colonized philosophy. In doing so, Ricci highlights the metaphoric and figurative predisposition of mind as synthetic functions of historical consciousness.In offering a thoroughly temporal interpretation of mind, Ricci illuminates the relationship between philosophy and history, poetry, the cognitive sciences, and the natural sciences.

This work will be of interest to philosophers, literary scholars, and cultural historians.
