This book traces the concept of melancholy in Walter Benjamins early writings. Rather than focusing on the overtly melancholic subject matter of Benjamins work or the unhappy circumstances of his own fate, Ferber considers the concepts implications for his philosophy. Informed by Heideggers discussion of moods and their importance for philosophical thought, she contends that a melancholic mood is the organizing principle or structure of Benjamins early metaphysics and ontology.

Her novel analysis of Benjamins arguments about theater and language features a discussion of the Trauerspiel book that is amongst the first in English to scrutinize the baroque plays themselves. Philosophy and Melancholy also contributes to the history of philosophy by establishing a strong relationship between Benjamin and other philosophers, including Leibniz, Kant, Husserl, and Heidegger.
