Welcome to Bloomsbury Philosophy Welcome to the new Philosophy catalogue. As you will have noticed, for the first time this catalogue is coming out under the Bloomsbury name instead of the separate Continuum and Bloomsbury Academic imprints. We wanted to give you some background to this rebranding. In 2008, Bloomsbury decided to invest in building a new academic division. Growth since that decision was taken has been very rapid: we now publish around 1,100 titles each year, with a particularly big presence in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and our backlist comprises some 20,000 titles. The purchase of Continuum in 2011 was a key part of this growth. We believe we are stronger as a group, which is why we have taken the strategic decision to adopt the Bloomsbury name for all academic titles that we publish. With effect from 1st September 2012, all new Continuum titles will be published under the Bloomsbury brand. The same applies to all Bristol Classical Press titles, as of 1st January 2013. This will make it easier for you to find quality philosophy publishing, rather than navigating across a number of imprints. The values of Continuum and other imprints, which you have appreciated over the years are already integral to the larger entity that is Bloomsbury. Much has changed over the past 12 months, but we remain as committed to our authors and to publishing the same high quality textbooks, course books, translations of key texts, research monographs, reference works, journals and online resources.

Publishing in Print and Digital

Bloomsbury leads the way in digital publishing, for example with the launch of the Churchill Archive in September 2012 and Drama Online in spring 2013 (see www.churchillarchive.com and www.dramaonlinelibrary.com). We are currently exploring digital publishing opportunities for the Philosophy list, over and above eBooks of individual titles. You can expect to hear more about this on our blog over the coming months. Please feel free to contact us with any ideas that you have for digital products (e.g. collections of works) and services.

Highlights

In this catalogue, we are delighted to introduce several new textbooks, including The Bloomsbury Anthology of Aesthetics (p.8), Philosophy of Action (p.9), Philosophy of Law (p.9) and Philosophy of Language (p.8), as well as the second edition of our popular Doing Philosophy (p.8). Our range of Companions continues to grow and now features Analytic Philosophy, Epistemology and Aesthetics along with Aristotle, Aquinas, Hegel and Heidegger (p.1416). Furthermore, we publish the three-volume reference work, The Complete Heidegger Concordance (p.18) and launch several new Philosophical Dictionaries, including Deleuze and Guattari, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty (p.17). Finally, we are proud to publish new translations of Heidegger’s Basic Problems of Phenomenology (p.21), Laruelle’s Mathematics of the Transcendental (p.19) and Anti-Badiou and Irigaray’s In the Beginning, She Was (p.20).

New Website

We are also delighted to announce the launch of a new global Bloomsbury website: www.bloomsbury.com. This site brings together everything under the Bloomsbury Group, including Continuum, Berg, Methuen Drama, Arden Shakespeare, T&T Clark, Bristol Classical Press, and A&C Black titles. The site features enhanced academic functionality such as online previews, digital inspection copies, textbook companion sites and online resources. Go to www.bloomsbury.com/academic for more information. We hope you enjoy reading our latest catalogue.

Bloomsbury Revelations Series Bringing together books and thinkers that have opened up startling new ways of looking at the world, the Bloomsbury Revelations series celebrates the originality and excellence of Bloomsbury’s non-fiction publishing. Including books by the likes of Gilles Deleuze, Ronald Dworkin, Mohandas Ghandi, Konstantin Stanislavski, Theodor Adorno and Karl Barth, this is an essential library of the thinkers who have fundamentally shaped the way we see the modern world.

Anti-Oedipus

A Thousand Plateaus

Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari The collaboration of the philosopher Gilles Deleuze and the psychoanalyst Felix Guattari has been one of the most profoundly influential partnerships in contemporary thought. AntiOedipus is the first part of their masterpiece, Capitalism and Schizophrenia. Ranging widely across the radical tradition of 20th-Century thought and culture that preceeded them - from Foucault, Lacan and Jung to Samuel Beckett and Henry Miller - this revolutionary analysis of the intertwining of desire, reality and capitalist society is an essential read for anyone interested in postwar continental thought. Gilles Deleuze was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII. Felix Guattari (1930-1992) was a French psychoanalyst, philosopher, social theorist and radical activist. He is best known for his collaborative work with Gilles Deleuze. UK April 2013 • US June 2013 712 pages PB 9781780936611 • £16.99 / $27.95 World English excluding USA/Canada Series: Bloomsbury Revelations

The Eclipse of Reason

Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari

Max Horkheimer

A Thousand Plateaus is the second part of Deleuze and Guattari’s landmark philosophical project, Capitalism and Schizophrenia - a project that still sets the terms of contemporary philosophical debate. Written over a seven year period, A Thousand Plateaus provides a compelling analysis of social phenomena and offers fresh alternatives for thinking about philosophy and culture. Its radical perspective provides a toolbox for ‘nomadic thought’ and has had a galvanizing influence on today’s anti-capitalist movement. Gilles Deleuze was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII. Felix Guattari (1930-1992) was a French psychoanalyst, philosopher, social theorist and radical activist. He is best known for his collaborative work with Gilles Deleuze. UK April 2013 / US June 2013 712 pages PB 9781780935379 • £16.99 / $27.95 World English excluding USA/Canada Series: Bloomsbury Revelations

The Politics of Aesthetics Jacques Ranciere Translated by Gabriel Rockhill “Jacques Rancière is one of the most important and original contemporary French philosophers. This book provides perhaps the best available introduction to his thought in English. Its main contents are two interviews with Rancière...they provide an extraordinarily concise and systematic summary by Rancière of the main themes of his recent work across its whole range.” Culture Machine “[A]n excellent introduction to Jacques Rancière.” London Review of Books Available now in the Bloomsbury Revelations series 10 years after its original publication, The Politics of Aesthetics includes an afterword by Slavoj Zizek, an interview for the English edition, a glossary of technical terms and an extensive bibliography. Jacques Rancière taught at the University of Paris VIII, France, from 1969 to 2000, occupying the Chair of Aesthetics and Politics from 1990 until his retirement.

In his most important work, Max Horkheimer surveys and demonstrates the gradual ascendancy of Reason in Western philosophy, its eventual total application to all spheres of life, and what he considers its present reified domination. First published in 1947, Horkheimer here explores the ways in which Nazism - that most irrational of political movements - had co-opted ideas of rationality for its own ends. Ultimately, the book is a warning of the ways this might happen again and, as such, this is a book that has never appeared more timely.

Aesthetic Theory Theodor W. Adorno Theodor Adorno (1903-69) was undoubtedly the foremost thinker of the Frankfurt School, the influential group of German thinkers that fled to the US in the 1930s. Aesthetic Theory is Adorno’s posthumous magnum opus and the culmination of a lifetime’s investigation. Analysing the sublime, the ugly and the beautiful, Adorno shows how such concepts frame and distil human experience and that it is human experience that ultimately underlies aesthetics. In Adorno’s formulation ‘art is the sedimented history of human misery’. Theodor W. Adorno (1903-69) was a founder and arguably the foremost thinker of the Frankfurt School. He worked with Max Horkheimer at the New York Institute for Social Research and later taught at the University of Frankfurt until his death in 1969.

To Have or To Be? Erich Fromm To Have Or to Be? is one of the seminal books of the second half of the 20th century. Nothing less than a manifesto for a new social and psychological revolution to save our threatened planet, this book is a summary of the penetrating thought of Eric Fromm. His thesis is that two modes of existence struggle for the spirit of humankind: the having mode, which concentrates on material possessions, power, and aggression, and is the basis of the universal evils of greed, envy, and violence; and the being mode, which is based on love, the pleasure of sharing, and in productive activity. To Have Or to Be? is a brilliant program for socioeconomic change. Erich Fromm (1900-1980) studied sociology and psychoanalysis. In 1933, he emigrated as a member of the Frankfurt School of social thinkers to the United States, moved to Mexico in 1950, and spent his twilight years between 1974 and 1980 in Switzerland. UK April 2013 • US June 2013 224 pages PB 9781780936802 • £12.99 / $19.95 Series: Bloomsbury Revelations

Truth and Method Hans-Georg Gadamer Truth and Method is a landmark work of 20th century thought which established Hans GeorgGadamer as one of the most important philosophical voices of the 20th Century. In this book, Gadamer established the field of ‘philosophical hermeneutics’: exploring the nature of knowledge, the book rejected traditional quasi-scientific approaches to establishing cultural meaning that were prevalent after the war. In arguing that ‘truth’ and ‘method’ acted in opposition to each other, Gadamer examined the ways in which historical and cultural circumstance fundamentally influenced human understanding. It was an approach that would become hugely influential in the humanities and social sciences and remains so to this day in the work of Jurgen Habermas and many others. Hans-Georg Gadamer was born on 11 February 1900 and died on 13 March 2002. He was the author, most notably, of Truth and Method, and, more recently, of The Beginning of Philosophy and The Beginning of Knowledge.

“A compelling analysis of what Washington has been pleased to call the global war on terror.” Times Literary Supplement “When it comes to mysterious paradoxes and lyrical complexity no French intellectual matches Jean Baudrillard in contemplating the New World - a sharp-shooting Lone Ranger of the postMarxist left.” New York Times In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, after the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and at the height of the “War on Terror”, the controversial postmodernist thinker Jean Baudrillard wrote The Intelligence of Evil. In tackling the rhetoric of the so-called “clash of civilizations” between a capitalist West and a fundamentalist religious Islam, the book also provides a summation of many of the most important themes of Baurdrillard’s philosophical project. Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) was one of the most influential and controversial thinkers of the post-War period. Perhaps the leading thinker of the postmodernist school, his writings cover art, media, sociology, culture and philosophy.

Alasdair MacIntyre, with a new preface by the author Highly controversial when it was first published in 1981, Alasdair MacIntyre’s After Virtue has since established itself as a landmark work in contemporary moral philosophy. In this book, MacIntyre sought to address a crisis in moral language that he traced back to a European Enlightenment that had made the formulation of moral principles increasingly difficult. In the search for a way out of this impasse, MacIntyre returns to an earlier strand of ethical thinking, that of Aristotle, who emphasised the importance of ‘virtue’ to the  ethical life. Alasdair MacIntyre is Senior Research Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame.

Ronald Dworkin, with a new preface by the author A landmark work of political and legal philosophy, Ronald Dworkin’s Taking Rights Seriously was acclaimed as a major work on its first publication in 1977 and remains profoundly influential in the 21st century. A forceful statement of liberal principles - championing the legal, moral and political rights of the individual against the state - Dworkin demolishes prevailing utilitarian and legal-positivist approaches to jurisprudence. Developing his own theory of adjudication, he applies this to controversial public issues, from civil disobedience to positive discrimination. Elegantly written and cuttingly insightful, Taking Rights Seriously is one of the most important works of public thought of the last fifty years. Ronald Dworkin is Professor of Philosophy and Frank Henry Sommer Professor of Law, New York University, USA.

Time for Revolution Antonio Negri “We discover here another Negri, a Negri deeply immersed in a philosophical, even a theological problematic. This book is a MUST: it provides the proper background for Negri’s widely circulated analysis of the global capitalist Empire.” ­Slavoj Zizek “Time for Revolution constitutes a major philosophical statement by one of the most important thinkers of our time.” Fredric Jameson Antonio Negri wrote the two essays that comprise Time for Revolution while serving a prison sentence for alleged involvement with radical left-wing groups. Although the essays were written two decades apart, their concerns are the same: is there a place for resistance in a society utterly subsumed by capitalism? Antonio Negri is one of the most significant figures in contemporary political thought. UK April 2013 • US June 2013 288 pages PB 9781780936093 • £12.99 / $19.95 Series: Bloomsbury Revelations

The Historical Present Medievalism and Modernity Walter Kudrycz Medievalism has become a central concern for those studying and teaching medieval history. It can be distinguished from traditional medieval history because it is not directly concerned with the study of the Middle Ages themselves, but rather it looks at how ideas about the medieval era operate in modern culture. This volume breaks new ground by moving beyond the arena of contemporary popular culture by interpreting modern academic attitudes towards the Middle Ages as themselves forms of medievalism. This volume argues that modernity’s sense of the medieval past is the product of the dominant intellectual movements of the nineteenth century, Romanticism and Idealism, and that nineteenth century attitudes have continued to inform current understandings of the Middle Ages. WALTER KUDRYCZ is lecturer in philosophy at the Australian National University, Canberra. UK September 2012 • US November 2012 256 pages PB 9781441109491 • £24.99 / $44.95

In Defence of Politics Sir Bernard Crick “He has written an exceedingly clever and disturbing book on important issues. All that he writes is alive and much of what he says, even when it seems perversely provocative, turns out to be penetrating and serious.” Isaiah Berlin Bernard Crick’s classic In Defence of Politics remains as important and inspiring a read as ever. First published in 1962 and regularly revised up until its final edition in 2002, this book argues passionately that politics however messy and complex it might be and for all its seeming compromises and bitter divisions - is a vital freedom that we take for granted at our peril. Sir Bernard Crick was Emeritus Professor of Politics, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK, and Honorary Fellow in Politics at the University of Edinburgh, UK.

Understanding Music

bestseller

Sinister Resonance

bestseller

Philosophy and Interpretation Roger Scruton

The Mediumship of the Listener David Toop

“The prolific philosopher turns his attention back to music, exploring the fundamental elements that make a great piece. Ranging from Wagner to Hoagy Carmichael and even a final chapter on ‘the disaster of pop’, this is trademark, provocotive Scruton.” Bookseller

“This is not just a book about the uncanny history of sound, but about the hidden affinities between eras and art forms. The patterns it divines make Sinister Resonance something like a sonically minded companion to Marina Warner’s Phantasmagoria, on the haunted nature of photography and cinema.” The Wire

Roger Scruton first addressed this topic in his celebrated book The Aesthetics of Music and in this new book he applies the theory to the practice and examines a number of composers and musical forms. Many will be delighted, others enraged. However, underlying this book there is a consistent argument and passion for tonality and rhythm. ROGER SCRUTON is visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, Senior Research Fellow at Blackfriars Hall Oxford and visiting Research Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of St Andrews, UK.

“Incredibly well researched, Sinister Resonance is a surprisingly thoughtprovoking work of pop-culture analysis.” David Sylvian David Toop is a musician, writer, and sound curator. His acclaimed books include Rap Attack, Ocean of Sound, Exotica, and Haunted Weather.

The Sexual Politics bestseller of Meat (20th Anniversary Edition) A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory Carol J. Adams “The connections traced between rampant masculinity, misogyny, carnivorism, and militarism operate as powerfully today as when Carol Adams first diagnosed then twenty years ago.” J M Coetzee “In the 20th-anniversary edition of this thought-provoking book, Adams explores the links between the slaughter of animals and violence directed against women, and ties the carnivorous diet to such patriarchal ideas as ‘the end justifies the means’.” Toronto Globe and Mail

The Purpose of Life

Dishonest to God

A Theistic Perspective Stewart Goetz

On Keeping Religion Out of Politics Mary Warnock

“A very stimulating and readable defence of a theistic hedonistic understanding of happiness as the purpose of life; it should be of interest to philosophers of religion and value theorists at every level, from the undergraduate upwards.” T. J. Mawson, Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy, University of Oxford, UK

“An excellent antidote to religious complacency.”-The Tablet

What does philosophy have to say on the question of the meaning of life? It may surprise some readers that there has, in fact, been a good deal of agreement on the answer to this question: the meaning of life is happiness. The Purpose of Life is a serious but engaging exploration and defense of this answer. Stewart Goetz provides a survey of the debates surrounding life’s meaning, from both theists and atheists alike.

bestseller

This book reflects on the nature of religion and how it relates or ought to relate to the rest of life. Many people today are totally indifferent to religion but religion is far from dead. Indeed religions are intensely defended and aggressively pursued. This book attempts to clarify the foundation of morality in a society largely indifferent to and ignorant of religion. Religion nevertheless emerges as a source of deep and unique imaginative experience. Mary Warnock is a fellow and tutor in Philosophy at St Hugh’s College, Oxford, UK.

Epistemology: The Key Thinkers Edited by Stephen Hetherington “The best history of philosophy is the wellspring of insightful metaphilosophy. This volume is a prime example of both. As these essays so vividly show, the history of epistemology may be a singularly bountiful supply of metaphilosophical insights, for the sharpness of its main problems and the complexity in its most seductive failures.” Claudio de Almeida, Professor of Philosophy, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS), Brazil Exploring what great philosophers have written about the nature of knowledge and about how we know what we know, this is a concise and accessible introduction to the field of epistemology. Epistemology: The Key Thinkers tells the story of how epistemological thinking has developed over the centuries, through the work of the finest thinkers on the topic.

He thoroughly explores such ideas as the function-argument and the sense-reference distinction, judiciously discriminating between what we should retain and what we should discard.

Kerry Walters does a splendid job of explaining all the major approaches to vegetarianism in a way that is comprehensive, fair, and thoughtful. Those new to vegetarianism will find no better guide. Even those who have followed these debates for decades will learn from Walters’ approach. Strongly recommended.” Deane Curtin, Professor and Chair, Department of Philosophy, Gustavus Adolphus College, USA Vegetarianism:  A Guide for the Perplexed offers a much needed survey of the different arguments offered by ethical vegetarians and their critics.  In a rigorous but accessible manner, the author scrutinizes the arguments in defense of vegetarianism based on compassion, rights, interests, eco-feminism, environmentalism, anthrocentrism, and religion.

Starting With… Bloomsbury’s Starting with… series offers clear, concise and accessible introductions to the key thinkers in philosophy.

Starting with Hume

Starting with Kant

Starting with Merleau-Ponty

Charlotte Randall Brown and William Edward Morris

Andrew Ward

Katherine J. Morris

“Ward is refreshingly sympathetic to Kant’s philosophy, and he defends it against a range of criticisms. He expounds Kant’s metaphysics and ethics with admirable clarity, and since he closely follows Kant’s own order of exposition in the first two Critiques, readers can easily use this book as a guide to their own reading of the texts. Throughout, Ward rightly stresses that Kant’s ethics can be understood only in the context of his metaphysics, and thus presents his philosophy as an organic whole.” ­George MacDonald Ross, Visiting Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at University of Leeds, UK

The Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Utilitarianism Edited by James E. Crimmins

Encyclopedia of the American Enlightenment Edited by Mark G. Spencer

Jeremy Bentham coined the term ‘utilitarian’ in 1781, but the idea of ‘utility’ as a value, goal or principle in political, moral or economic life has a long and rich history. The Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Utilitarianism captures the complex developmental history and the multi-faceted character of utilitarianism in its various contexts and forms more completely than any previous source. The Encyclopedia includes entries on the authors and texts that are recognised as having built the tradition of utilitarian thinking, as well as on the issues and critics that have arisen at every stage of the development of that tradition.

The Encyclopedia of the American Enlightenment is the first reference work on this key subject in early American history. With over 500 scholars participating, this book provides a comprehensive account to complement the intense scholarly activity that has centered on the European Enlightenment recently. There are substantial and original essays on the major American Enlightenment figures, including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, David Rittenhouse, Benjamin Rush, Jonathan Edwards, and many others. And the collection is wide-ranging – including many topical essays and entries on dozens of oftenoverlooked secondary figures, offering a fresh definition of the Enlightenment in America.

James E. Crimmins is Professor of Political Theory at Huron University College, The University of Western Ontario, Canada.

Mark G. Spencer is Professor of History at Brock University, Canada and has published widely in the fields relating to American Enlightenment.

The Complete Heidegger Concordance Edited by Francois Jaran and Christophe Perrin

Schizoanalytic Cartographies Felix Guattari Translated by Andrew Goffey Schizoanalytic Cartographies represents Félix Guattari’s most important later work and the most systematic and detailed account of his theoretical position and his therapeutic ideas. Guattari sets out to provide a complete account of the conditions of ‘enunciation’ - autonomous speech and self-expression - for subjects in the contemporary world. Over the course of eight closely argued chapters, he presents a breathtakingly new reformulation of the structures of individual and collective subjectivity. Based on research into information theory and new technologies, Guattari articulates a vision of a humanity finally reconciled with its relationship to machines. Félix Guattari (1930-1992) was a French psychoanalyst, philosopher, social theorist and radical activist. He is best known for his collaborative work with Gilles Deleuze.

The book is exceptionally clear and concise, entirely devoted to a single chain of reasoning. It combines a confident insistence on the self-sufficiency of rational demonstration with an equally rationalist suspicion of mere experience and consensus...[this] is a beautifully written and seductively argued book.” Radical Philosophy Quentin Meillassoux teaches Philosophy at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France.   UK November 2009 • US January 2010 160 pages PB 9781441173836 • £13.99 / $19.95 Individual eBook 9781441121332 • £13.99 / $15.99 Translation Rights Not Available

Onto-logy and being-there Alain Badiou Translated by A.J.

This important book combines both his elaboration of the disjunctive synthesis between ontology and onto-logy from the perspective of Category Theory and the categorial basis of his philosophical conception of ‘being there’.

Anti-Badiou

Logics of Worlds

On the Introduction of Maoism into Philosophy Francois Laruelle Translated by Robin Mackay

Being and Event II Alain Badiou Translated by Alberto Toscano

This compelling and highly original book represents a confrontation between two of the most radical thinkers at work in France today: Alain Badiou and the author, François Laruelle. At face value, the two have much in common: both espouse a position of absolute immanence; both argue that philosophy is conditioned by science; and both command a pluralism of thought. Anti-Badiou relates the parallel stories of Badiou’s Maoist ‘ontology of the void’ and Laruelle’s own performative practice of “nonphilosophy” and explains why the two are in fact radically different.

Francois Laruelle Translated by Nicola Rubczak and Anthony Paul Smith Principles of Non-Philosophy is a treatise on the method, axioms and objectives of non-philosophy. The book represents François Laruelle’s mature philosophy, bringing together all the elements of his thought developed over the preceding twenty years and laying the foundations for his later work. Arguably Laruelle’s magnum opus, the book contains a history of the development of non-philosophy, a novel conception of science, a discussion of non-philosophical causality, and new theories of the subject and object of thought. François Laruelle is Emeritus Professor at the University of Paris Ouest, Nanterre La Défense (Paris X) and lectures at the Collège International de Philosophie.

“This time it’s true; this really IS the book we have been waiting for. Since the publication of his magisterial Being and Event, we have been impatient to see what could not be foreseen: the way worlds look, according to Badiou. Logics of Worlds delivers a powerful theory of the uncanny appearance of truths; a rigorous polemic against the tedious nominalist-historicist materialism of our day; and a phenomenology every bit as impressive as Badiou’s justly celebrated ontology.” Joan Copjec, University at Buffalo, USA

In the Beginning, She Was Luce Irigaray In this new book, crucial for understanding her journey, Luce Irigaray goes further than in Speculum and questions the work of the Pre-Socratics at the root of our culture. Reminding us of the story of Ulysses and Antigone, she demonstrates how, from the beginning, Western tradition represents an exile for humanity. Indeed, to emerge from the maternal origin, man elaborated a discourse of mastery and constructed a world of his own that grew away from life and prevented perceiving the real as it is. To recover our natural belonging and learn how to cultivate it humanly is imperative and needs turning back before the golden age of Greek culture. Another language is, then, to discover, capable of expressing living energy and transforming our instincts into shareable desires.

Basic Problems of Phenomenology Winter Semester 1919/1920 Martin Heidegger Translated by Scott M. Campbell

“In short, this elegantly presented, tastefully produced volume provides, as far as their evaluation of his verse is concerned, all that is required to bring about a conversion of even Nietzsche’s sternest critics.” The Journal of European Studies The Peacock and the Buffalo presents the first complete English translation of the poetry of the celebrated and hugely influential German thinker, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900). Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a German philosopher and classical philologist.

Basic Problems of Phenomenology presents the first English translation of Martin Heidegger’s early lecture course from the Winter of 1919/1920, in which he attempts to clarify phenomenology by looking at the phenomenon of life, which he sees as the primary area of research for phenomenology. Heidegger investigates the notions of life and world, and in particular the self-world, Christianity, and science in an attempt to discern how phenomenology is the primordial science of life and how phenomenology can take account of the streaming character of life. Basic Problems of Phenomenology provides invaluable insights into the development of Heidegger’s thoughts about human existence up to Being and Time.

James Luchte is Lecturer of Philosophy and Programme Co-ordinator of the MA in European Philosophy at the University of Wales, Trinity St. David, in Wales.

Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) is regarded as one of the twentieth century’s most important philosophers.

“Philosophy and Simulation is a book about affection - the capacity to affect and be affected by others - an organon for a non-reductive and emergent Theory of Everything, running from inorganic matter to the dawn of civilisation. Moving elegantly between science, history and computer simulation, the book is a fascinating and enormously wide-ranging introduction to DeLanda’s singular world-view.” Andrew Pickering, Professor of Sociology and Philosophy, Exeter University, UK

The Concept of Time presents Heidegger’s so-called Dilthey review, widely considered the first draft of his celebrated masterpiece, Being and Time. Here Heidegger reveals his deep commitment to Wilhelm Dilthey and Count Yorck von Wartenburg. He agrees with them that historicity must be at the centre of the new philosophy to come. However, he also argues for an ontological approach to history. From this ontological turn he develops the so-called categories of Dasein.

Speculative Realism

Posthumanism

Flesh and Body

Problems and Prospects Peter Gratton

A Critical Analysis Stefan Herbrechter

This book introduces the contexts out of which speculative realism has emerged and provides an overview of the major contributors and latest developments. The book begins with the speculative realist’s critique of ‘correlationism’, the view that we can never reach what is real beneath our language systems, our means for perception, or our finite manner of beingin-the-world. Gratton goes on to introduce the work of the movement’s most important thinkers, including Quentin Meillassoux, Ray Brassier, Graham Harman and Bruno Latour, whose writings delineate alternative approaches to the real. He interrogates the crucial questions these thinkers have raised and concludes with a look toward the future of speculative realism.

Who comes after the human? This is the question that posthumanists are taking as their starting point. This critical introduction understands posthumanism as a discourse, which, in principle, includes everything that has been and is being said about the figure of the ‘posthuman’. It outlines the genealogy of the various posthuman ‘scenarios’ in circulation and engages with their theoretical and philosophical assumptions and social and political implications. It does so by connecting the philosophical debate about the future of humanity with a range of texts, including examples from new media, popular culture, science and the media.

Issues in Phenomenology and Hermeneutics

Ricoeur and the Negation of Happiness

Issues in Phenomenology and Hermeneutics presents original research work that appeals to the phenomenological method while also being informed by the tradition of hermeneutics. The books in this series abide by the rigor of traditional Husserlian phenomenology and bridge the gap between philosophical, religious, literary and legal hermeneutics. Informed by current debates within both these fields, the series advances and promotes dialogue between the two movements.

Ricoeur lectured and wrote for over twenty years on negation (‘Do I understand something better if I know what it is not, and what is notness?’) and never published his extensive writings on this subject. Ricoeur and the Negation of Happiness draws on previously unavailable archival material.Alison Scott-Baumann argues that Ricoeur’s search to understand humans and help us to improve our lives is suffused with the conviction that negative thought is necessary but not sufficient; what is also required is some sort of affirmation that we know we are split by contradictions and nevertheless try to overcome them.

Known for influencing Merleau-Ponty’s groundbreaking work on the body as well as Levinas’s interest in concrete existence, Husserl’s work on the body is nevertheless often overlooked and underappreciated by phenomenologists. Franck offers a lucid and concise analysis that serves as an aide to guide the reader through the multi-layered and complex observations Husserl takes pains to communicate over the span of several years.In taking a phenomenological approach to questions of the body, ego, temporailty and intersubjective relations with the ‘other, this book is a much-needed exposition of an often overlooked dimension of Husserl’s enormous body of work that in turn corrects many misperceptions about Husserl and his theories.

Lyotard and the figural in Performance, Art and Writing Kiff Bamford “At last, an articulate and sensitive study that meshes detailed analyses of significant moments in an emerging history of performance with an informed reading of Lyotard’s philosophy. Bamford’s book demonstrates the deep affinity - long sensed by scholars and artists, but rarely, if ever, performed so adroitly - between creative practice and Lyotard’s thought, and firmly establishes the figural as a key term in the vocabulary of contemporary art history, criticism and philosophy.” Anthony Hudek, University College London, UK Kiff Bamford is Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Art and Graphic Design at Leeds Metropolitan University, UK.

Deleuze and the Diagram Aesthetic Threads in Visual Organization Jakub Zdebik “Zdebik’s book fills handsomely a glaring gap in the literature on diagrammatic thinking in general and the role the diagram plays in Gilles Deleuze’s ontology and aesthetics. It is thoughtful, well written, informative and will be of immense interest to those who want to understand the recent prominence of diagrammatic thinking and the way in which it rivals semiotic thinking. It will also show Deleuze scholars how exactly the diagram – a concept at the center of Deleuze’s work – was meant to work.” Constantin V. Boundas, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Trent University, Ontario, Canada Jakub Zdebik teaches at the University of Ottawa, Canada.

Revisiting Normativity with Deleuze

Deleuze and Art Anne Sauvagnargues Translated by Samantha Bankston with Robert King

Edited by Rosi Braidotti and Patricia Pisters This impressive collection of essays demonstrates how far Deleuzian research has moved into a new phase of engagement with fundamental questions in the humanities and sciences. It reflects the recent turn towards normative issues in Deleuzian philosophy, not only in the domains of political and legal philosophy in which they have been prominent but also in new areas such as epistemology, aesthetics and visual art. It provides informative and rigorous application of Deleuzian ideas to problems arising in philosophy, economics, literature and cognitive science. Rosi Braidotti is Distinguished University Professor and founding Director of the Centre for the Humanities at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. Patricia Pisters is Professor of Media and Film Studies at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Deleuze and the History of Mathematics In Defence of the ‘New’ Simon Duffy Gilles Deleuze’s engagements with mathematics, replete in his work, rely upon the construction of alternative lineages in the history of mathematics, which challenge some of the selfimposed limits that regulate the canonical concepts of the discipline. For Deleuze, these challenges are an opportunity to reconfigure particular philosophical problems - for example, the problem of individuation - and to develop new concepts in response to them. The highly original research presented in this book explores the mathematical construction of Deleuze’s philosophy, as well as addressing the undervalued and often neglected question of the mathematical thinkers who influenced his work. Simon Duffy is a Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Sydney, Australia.

In Deleuze and Art Anne Sauvagnargues, one of the world’s most renowned Deleuze scholars, offers a unique insight into the constitutive role played by art in the formation of Deleuze’s thought. By reproducing Deleuze’s social and intellectual references, Sauvagnargues is able to construct a precise map of the totality of Deleuze’s work, pinpointing where key Deleuzian concepts first emerge and eventually disappear. This innovative methodology, which Sauvagnarges calls “periodization”, provides a systematic historiography of Deleuze’s philosophy that remains faithful to his affirmation of the principle of exteriority.. This book is the product of insightful and careful research, which has not been made available to English readers of Deleuze before now.

Derrida, Badiou and the Formal Imperative Christopher Norris “There is no other current work that so persuasively demonstrates that the way out of the current impasses of philosophy and towards a more open-minded and communicative philosophic culture is to overcome the assumption that the analytical and the creative are axiomatically at odds with each other. The book is a major contribution in the overcoming of the still pervasive ‘two cultures’ mentality.” Patricia Waugh, Professor in the Department of English Studies, Durham University, UK In this path-breaking study Christopher Norris proposes a transformed understanding of the much-exaggerated differences between analytic and continental philosophy. This book focuses on the work of Jacques Derrida and Alain Badiou, two of the most original and significant figures in the recent history of ideas. Norris argues that these thinkers have decisively reconfigured the terrain of contemporary philosophy and, between them, pointed a way beyond some of those seemingly intractable issues that have polarized debate on both sides of the notional rift between the analytic and continental traditions. Norris provides a remarkably wideranging assessment of their joint contribution to philosophy’s current - if widely resisted potential for self-transformation. Christopher Norris is Distinguished Research Professor in Philosophy at the University of Cardiff, Wales.

Breathing with Luce Irigaray Edited by Lenart Skof and Emily A. Holmes Contributors to this volume consider the implications of ‘the Age of Breath’: a spiritual shift in human awareness to the needs of the other figured through breathing. Awareness of the breath allows us to attend to our bodies and the bodies of others, to animals, nature, other cultures, oppressed minorities, and the other of sexual difference. As a way to connect body and spirit, self and other, nature and culture, and East and West, breathing emerges as the significant theological and philosophical gesture of our time.

Thinking Between Deleuze and Kant A Strange Encounter

Between the Canon and the Messiah The Structure of Faith in Contemporary Continental Thought Colby Dickinson Dickinson traces the development of two concepts, the messianic and the canonical, as they circulate, interweave and contest each other in the work of three prominent continental philosophers: Walter Benjamin, Jacques Derrida and Giorgio Agamben, though a strong supporting cast of Jan Assmann, René Girard, Gershom Scholem, Jacob Taubes and Paul Ricoeur, among others, also play their respective roles throughout this study. He isolates how their various interactions with their chosen terms reflects a good deal of what is said within the various discourses that constitute what we have conveniently labelled, often in mistakenly monolithic terms, as ‘Theology’.

Post-Rationalism Psychoanalysis, Epistemology and Marxism in Post-War France Tom Eyers Post-Rationalism takes as its main source the experimental journal of psychoanalysis and philosophy, the Cahiers pour l’Analyse, established by students of Louis Althusser in 1966. In this book Eyers provides an important corrective to standard histories of the period. Each chapter engages the early work of figures now famous in contemporary critical thought, including Alain Badiou, JacquesAlain Miller and André Green. Throughout, emphasis is laid on the ways that French epistemological writing of the 1930s and 1940s laid the ground for the emergence of structuralism in the 1950s and 1960s, thus questioning the standard historical narrative that posits structuralism as emerging chiefly in reaction to phenomenology and existentialism.

Jean-Luc Nancy and the Question of Community Ignaas Devisch The French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy has made of the question of community one the central questions of his oeuvre. For Nancy, the question of community is the question of our time. It is not so much a new theory of community Nancy has in mind. Rather than abandoning a specific form of thought, he aims to put the ways we speak and think about the social bond into question, to break them open and exhaust all of their registers. Nancy’s work takes another look at community, at the social bond and at identity more generally, than we are used to. Ignaas Devisch is Professor in Ethics and Philosophy. He holds positions at Ghent University and University College Arteveldehogeschool, Belgium.

The New Phenomenology A Philosophical Introduction J. Aaron Simmons and Bruce Ellis Benson The New Phenomenology: A Philosophical Introduction is the first available introduction to the so-called ‘theological turn’ in contemporary French thought. Starting with the foundational works of Emmanuel Levinas and Michel Henry and moving on to examine later works by the likes of Jacques Derrida, Jean-Luc Marion and Jean-Louis Chretien, the book explores how the work of these thinkers form a coherent philosophical school - the ‘New Phenomenology.’ From here, the book goes on to map out the contributions of the movement to key areas of philosophical inquiry, from metaphysics, through aesthetics, to ethics and politics.

Emmanuel Levinas A Philosophy of Exile Abi Doukhan “Arguing against the received position that exile carries a negative connotation, Abigail Doukhan offers a re-reading of exile as a positive trope … Doukhan reads Levinas’s philosophy as a philosophy of exile, one that bridges the gap between exile and ethics and thus offers new interpretive tools for thinking about societies in crisis as a result of the exile inside and outside the community.” Claire

Katz, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Women’s Studies at Texas A&M University, USA

Abi Doukhan argues that Levinas’s philosophy can be understood as a comprehensive philosophy of exile, from his ethics to his thoughts on society, love, knowledge, spirituality and art, thereby presenting a comprehensive view of the philosophy of Levinas himself as well as a renewed understanding of the wealth and contribution of exile to a given society.

Nietzsche’s Therapeutic Teaching For Individuals and Culture Edited by Horst Hutter and Eli Friedland This collection of essays by leading scholars in the field is composed around the Nietzschean insight, which has its roots in the Hippocratic tradition of ancient medicine, that beliefs, behaviours, ideals and patterns of striving are not things for which individuals or even cultures are responsible. Rather, they are symptoms of what an individual or culture is, which symptoms require diagnostic interpretation and evaluation. The book identifies three principal approaches in Nietzsche’s philosophy: diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic. Each essay takes up this essential insight into Nietzsche’s therapeutic philosophy from a different perspective and collectively they reveal an array of insightful approaches to self-induced enhancement, for both individuals and cultures.

Gadamer’s Poetics: A Critique of Modern Aesthetics John Arthos This is the first full-length exposition of Gadamer’s approach to art. From the full corpus of Gadamer’s writings, it draws together a coherent theory of the work of art.  Close readings of Gadamer’s treatment of aesthetics in Truth and Method and his numerous essays and lectures on art, reveal a way of approaching art that is not ancillary to historical, philosophical, and linguistic themes. It establishes Gadamer’s position on the vexed issue of criteria for the judgment of art and the balance between production and reception from a hermeneutic perspective. Alongside numerous extended illustrations of art, to give a sense of the coherence of Gadamer’s theory a fully developed case study is provided.

Revaluating German Aesthetics from Kant to Adorno Ayon Maharaj This study examines how key figures in the German aesthetic tradition – Kant, Schelling, Friedrich Schlegel, Hegel, and Adorno – attempted to think through the powers and limits of art in post-Enlightenment modernity. Maharaj has two interrelated aims. First, to balance close exegesis with a more synthetic interpretive perspective, and, second, to revive the discourse of aesthetic agency. The result is an original, new account of the aesthetic standpoints of Kant, Schelling, Schlegel, Hegel and Adorno. Focusing on aspects of their aesthetic thought that have been neglected or misunderstood in both Anglo-American and German scholarship, this is an important contribution to both the German aesthetic tradition and the wider history of aesthetics.

The Ethical in Kierkegaard and Levinas Michael R. Paradiso-Michau

Performatives After Deconstruction Edited by Mauro Senatore

The Ethical in Kierkegaard and Levinas investigates the philosophical, ethical, religious, and socialpolitical thought of Soren Kierkegaard and Emmanuel Levinas alongside, and in conversation with, one another. ParadisoMichau disentangles Levinas’s troubled misconceptions about Kierkegaard’s multifaceted ideas of ‘the ethical’ sphere of human existence, revealing a deeper agreement and synergy than previously considered. While Kierkegaard, Levinas and some of their leading interpreters would identify their specific religious orientations (nineteenth-century Christianity and twentieth-century Judaism, respectively) as significant points of departure, this book places them in dialogue to reconsider the convergence of ethical and social-political horizons between human subjectivity and intersubjectivity.

What has happened since de Man and Derrida first read Austin? How has the encounter between deconstruction and the performative affected each of these terms? In addressing these questions, this book brings together scholars whose works have been provoked in different ways by the encounter of deconstruction and the performative. The contributors to this book suggest various ways of re-reading the heritage and future of both deconstruction and the performative after their encounter, bringing into focus both the constitutive aporias of the performatives and the role they play within the deconstruction of the metaphysical tradition. Mauro Senatore is a Lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies at Kingston University, UK.

The telling of tales is always a troubling business, and the way in which we tell stories about ourselves and about others always involves a degree of ethical risk. Levinas, Storytelling and Anti-Storytelling explores the troubling nature of storytelling through a reading of the work of Emmanuel Levinas. Levinas is a thinker who has a complex relationship with literature and with storytelling. At times, Levinas is a teller of powerful tales about ethics; at other times, on ethical grounds, he disavows storytelling altogether. This book explores the tensions between philosophy and storytelling that run throughout Levinas’s work.

The Philosophy of Simondon

open

Between Technology and Individuation Pascal Chabot Chabot’s introduction to Simondon’s work was published in French in 2002 and is now available in English for the first time. It is the most accessible guide to Simondon’s important but often opaque work. Chabot provides an excellent introduction to Simondon, positioning him as a philosopher of technology, and he describes his theory of individuation including his crystalline ontology. He goes on to offer a bridge between these two concerns, exploring how they are related.

Žižek and his Contemporaries The Emergence of Slovenian Neo-Lacanianism Jones Irwin and Helena Motoh Although only coming to international notice in the early 1990s, the Slovenian school needs to be understood as the culmination of a series of intellectual, artistic and political movements inextricably connected to the quest for the succession of Slovenia from Yugoslavia. These developments in thought must also be seen in the light of one of the giants of Continental philosophy: Jacques Lacan. Featuring brand new interviews with three of its forerunners - Žižek, Mladen Dolar and Alenka Zupancic - this fascinating account details each philosopher’s individual concerns, whilst shedding light on the complex genealogy and continuing development of the Slovenian Neo-Lacanian school.

Philosophy After Deleuze

Theology After Deleuze

Joe Hughes “Philosophy After Deleuze is a bold, wide-ranging and informative book. Joe Hughes affirms unequivocally that there is a Deleuzian philosophy and then shows us how to find it despite the many changes in subject matter and vocabulary that characterize Deleuze’s work. He traces the outlines of a Deleuzean philosophy across key manifestations in the fields of ontology, ethics, aesthetics and politics. He provides insightful accounts of Deleuze’s engagements with familiar interlocutors such as Kant, Spinoza, Bergson and Nietzsche, but also his less studied engagements with figures such as Blanchot, Klossowski and Hume. This book is essential reading for every serious student of Deleuze.” Paul Patton, Professor of Philosophy at the University of New South Wales, Australia Joe Hughes received his PhD from the University of Edinburgh, UK and currently teaches at the University of Minnesota, USA.

Kristien Justaert “The book is striking for its even-handed and open-ended approach to both Deleuze and to theology, sensitive to the complex nature of spiritual categories in Deleuze’s thought as well as to the intricate ways theological thought and practice have been constructed and contested in history. A provocative and compelling manifesto for religious and political experimentation.” Joshua Ramey is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Haverford College, USA This is the ideal introduction to Deleuzian theologies, and Deleuze’s own theology, for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Badiou and the Philosophers Interrogating 1960s French Philosophy Translated by Tzuchien Tho and Giuseppe Bianco Between 1965 and 1968, the celebrated French philosopher Alain Badiou hosted a televised series in which he interviewed some of the most influential contemporary philosophers of the period. This book presents the first English-language translation of those interviews. These highly accessible and entertaining interviews provide a snapshot of French philosophy in the 1960s, setting the scene for the very public and political context of philosophy in the period immediately preceding the events of May ’68, where philosophy played a crucial role. The book includes a new essay by Badiou in which he reflects on the project 30 years on.

Boring Formless Nonsense The Culture of Yellow Experimental Music and the Aesthetics of Failure eldritch Priest Boring Formless Nonsense intervenes in an aesthetics of failure that has largely been delimited by the visual arts and its avantgarde legacies. It focuses on contemporary experimental composition in which failure rubs shoulders with the categories of chance, noise, and obscurity. Reshaping debates on failure as an aesthetic category, eldritch Priest shows failure to be a highly dubious concept. The book frames recent experimental composition as a deviant kind of sound art whose affective and formal elements reflect on current issues in contemporary culture, and offers analyses of musical works and performance practices that are rarely heard. Eldritch Priest is a composer, writer and coartistic director of the experimental music collective Neither/Nor. He lives in Toronto. UK March 2013 • US January 2013 336 pages • 20 b/w illus.

Or, The Visual Politics of Late Modernity Sabine Doran This is the first book to explore the cultural significance of the colour yellow, showing how its psychological value marked and shaped many of the intellectual, political, and artistic currents of late modernity. It contends that yellow functioned during the period 1890-1990 primarily as a colour of stigma and scandal. Though scholars have commented on these associations in particular contexts, Doran offers the first overarching account of how yellow connects disparate cultural phenomena, such as turn-of-the-century decadence (the ‘yellow nineties’), the rise of mass media (yellow journalism), mass immigration from Asia (‘yellow peril’), and mass stigmatization (the yellow stars of Nazi Germany). Sabine Doran is Associate Professor of German and Comparative Literature and Director of the German Program at the University of California, Riverside, USA.

Noise and Contemporary Music Edited by Michael Goddard, Benjamin Halligan, and Nicola Spelman

Contemporary Art between Museum and Marketplace Martha Buskirk

Sound, Music, Affect features brand new essays that bring together the burgeoning developments in sound studies and affect studies. The first section sets out key methodological and theoretical concerns. The second section deals with particular musical case studies, exploring how reference to affect theory might change or reshape some of the ways we are able to make sense of musical materials. The third section examines the politics and practice of sonic disruption and the final section engages with some of the ways in which affect can help us understand the politics of chill, relaxation and intimacy as sonic encounters.

Noise Matters Towards an Ontology of Noise Greg Hainge Everyone knows what noise is. Or do they? Can we in fact say that one man’s noise is another teenager’s music? Is noise in fact only an auditory phenomenon or does it extend far beyond this realm? If our common definitions of noise are necessarily subjective and noise is not just unpleasant sound, then it merits a closer look (or listen). Greg Hainge sets out to define noise in this way, to find within it a series of operations common across its multiple manifestations that allow us to apprehend it as something other than a highly subjective term that tells us very little.

Noise seems to stand for a lack of aesthetic grace, to alienate or distract rather than enrapture. And yet the drones of psychedelia, the racket of garage rock and punk, the thudding of rave, the clatter of jungle and the stuttering of electronica, together with notable examples of avant-garde noise art, have all found a place in the history of contemporary musics, and are recognised as representing key evolutionary moments. Noise therefore is the untold story of contemporary popular music. Resonances is a compelling collection of new essays by scholars, writers and musicians - all seeking to explore and enlighten this field of study.

“A significant addition to the field of museum studies. Buskirk is a perpetually engaging writer, and her pages overflow with the most provocative, humorous and informative case studies of the often confounding installations and exhibitions that occur in current art practice … This is a great primer for both neophytes and arts professionals trying to clearly see the place of nontraditional artworks in today’s museum landscape.” Bill Arning, Director, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston Buskirk argues that understanding the dynamics of art itself cannot be separated from the business of presenting art to the public.

The Engagement Aesthetic Experiencing New Media Art through Critique Francisco J. Ricardo The Engagement Aesthetic details the first comprehensive overview of art practices that have, in recent years, been subjected to forms of mediation characterized as digital, electronic and new. Francisco J. Ricardo proposes an ‘engagement aesthetic’ as revealing certain commonalities in the practices of new media art and thus as providing a crucial critical framework. By examining specific works or instances of creation in multiple categories (performance + digital projection; kinetic sculpture + video; projection + text messaging, etc), Ricardo implements the use of phenomenology in order to understand the processes necessary to complete these emerging types of works. Francisco J. Ricardo is affiliated with the University Professors of Boston University, he is cofounder of the Digital Video Research Archive, and also teaches digital media theory at the Rhode Island School of Design, USA.

Philosophy, Aesthetics, and Cultural Theory

20th-Century Aesthetics Towards A Theory of Feeling Mario Perniola Translated by Massimo Verdicchio 20th-Century Aesthetics explores five major themes that, in Perniola’s view, have been central to European aesthetic theory: Life, Form, Consciousness, Action and Feeling. During the course of this exploration, he takes in many of the most important thinkers of the century, from Foucault, Deleuze and Merleau-Ponty, through Agamben, Jung and Adorno, to McLuhan and Rorty. Originally published in 1997 and fully updated for its first English translation, the book also includes a new conclusion by Perniola in which he outlines his own aesthetic theory of feeling.

Monster Culture in the 21st Century A Reader Edited by Marina Levina and Diem-My T. Bui Analyzing popular films and televisions shows, such as True Blood, Twilight, Paranormal Activity, District 9, Battlestar Galactica, and Avatar, the essays in this collection argue that monstrous narratives of the past decade have become omnipresent specifically because they represent collective social anxieties over resisting and embracing change in the 21st century. The first comprehensive text that uses monstrosity not just as a metaphor for change, but rather a necessary condition through which change is lived and experienced in the 21st century, this approach introduces a different perspective toward the study of monstrosity in culture.

The Re-Enchantment of the World The Value of the Human Spirit vs Industrial Populism Bernard Stiegler Translated by Trevor Arthur Bernard Stiegler’s work on the intimate relations between the human and the technical have made him one of the most important voices to have emerged in French philosophy in the last decade. The Re-Enchantment of the World advances a critique of consumer capitalism that draws on Freud and Marx to construct an utterly contemporary analysis of our time. The book explores the cognitive, affective, social and economic effects of the ‘proletarianization’ of the consumer in late capitalism and the resulting destruction of the consumer’s savoir-vivre.

Merleau-Ponty and the Paradoxes of Expression Donald A. Landes Merleau-Ponty and the Paradoxes of Expression offers a comprehensive reading of the philosophical work of Maurice MerleauPonty, a central figure in 20th-century continental philosophy. Donald A. Landes explores the paradoxical logic of expression as it appears in both his explicit reflections on expression and his non-explicit uses of this logic in his philosophical reflection on other topics, and thus establishes a continuity and a trajectory of his thought that allows for his work to be placed into conversation with contemporary developments in continental philosophy.

Kubrick’s Total Cinema

Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon

Philosophical Themes and Formal Qualities Philip Kuberski

Maria Pramaggiore

“Kubrick’s Total Cinema by Philip Kuberski belongs to a vanishingly small number of books that treat the films of Stanley Kubrick with the delicate combination of critical virtues they demand and deserve: a thorough knowledge of the medium of film, a penetrating insight into the aesthetic and philosophical perspectives informing Kubrick’s choices, a capacious imagination, and discerning taste. For the first time, Kubrick’s cinema is understood in ways that fully acknowledge the cognitive, metaphysical, and spiritual themes that are pertinent to his art as well as the dazzling visual achievements for which the films are justly famous.” Frederick M.

A esthetics and C ultural T heory

Transnationality, Imagery, and a Director’s Mark Considered by critics to be Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, Barry Lyndon has suffered from scholarly and popular neglect. Taking a novel approach, Maria Pramaggiore argues that one key reason that this film remains unappreciated, even by Kubrick aficionados, is that its transnational and intermedial contexts have not been fully explored. Taking a novel approach, she looks at the film from a transnational perspective – as a foreign production shot in Ireland and an adaptation of a British novel by an American director about an Irish subject. Pramaggiore argues that, in Barry Lyndon, Kubrick develops his richest philosophical mediation on cinema’s capacity to mediate the real and foregrounds film’s relationship to other technologies of visuality, including painting, photography, and digital media.

The Phenomenology of Modern Art

On Bathos

Exploding Deleuze, Illuminating Style Paul Crowther

Literature, Art, Music Edited by Sara Crangle and Peter Nicholls

As a philosophical approach, phenomenology is concerned with structure in how phenomena are experienced. The Phenomenology of Modern Art uses phenomenological insights to explain the significance of style in modern art, most notably in Impressionism, Expressionism, Cezanne and Cubism, Duchampian conceptualism and abstract art. Paul Crowther explores this thematic approach in a new way, addressing specific visual artworks and tendencies in detail and introduces a new methodology - post-analytic phenomenology. Crowther uses Deleuze’s important phenomenological insights as a starting point and goes on to develop arguments found in two other thinkers, Nietzsche and Merleau-Ponty, as well as addressing those figures and tendencies in relation to whom twentieth-century critical appropriations of Kant have been most influential.

Aesthetic and Artistic Autonomy Edited by Owen Hulatt Covering examples from Philosophy, Music and Art History and drawing on continental and analytic sources, this volume clarifies the relationship between artworks and extraaesthetic considerations, including historic, cultural or economic factors. It presents a comprehensive overview of the question of aesthetic autonomy, exploring its relevance to both philosophy and the comprehension of specific artworks themselves. By closely examining how the creation of artworks, and our judgements of these artworks, relate to society and history, Aesthetic and Artistic Autonomy provides an insightful and sustained discussion of a major question in aesthetic philosophy.

The Philosophy of Art: The Question of Definition From Hegel to Post-Dantian Theories Tiziana Andina Translated by Natalia Iacobelli Drawing on the philosophies of art developed by the continental authors and studies of Anglo-American philosophers, this book presents a panorama of the philosophy of art. It discusses definitions offered from the analytical school including Arthur Danto’s representationalism, Dipert’s theories of artefactualism, Dickie’s institutional and procedural theories and Levinson’s historical and cultural theories. The result is not only a presentation of philosophy of art from the beginning of the twentieth century to present day, but a study that proposes a theory capable of synthesizing the finest contributions of the analytic and continental traditions. Tiziana Andina is Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Turin, Italy.

Edited by Scott M. Campbell and Paul W. Bruno Scholars from aesthetics, bioethics and ontology examine how the notion of life has made its way into contemporary philosophical discussions. They identify three main themes: the shift toward biological and technological views of life, altering Dilthey and Nietzsche’s emphasis on historical life over biological life; the relationship between biopolitics and political liberalism and the re-emergence of the idea of life - so important for the traditional lifephilosophers -in recent discussions about care of the self, existential gratitude skepticism and the emotions. Anticipating new directions of philosophical thinking, this study restores a vital school of thought to crucial discussions about the dangers of contemporary politics and the threat of new technologies.

The Cognitive Value of Philosophical Fiction Jukka Mikkonen “Jukka Mikkonen contributes a welcome new voice, at once meticulous and creative, to contemporary discussion of what has become known as ‘philosophy through literature’. In The Cognitive Value of Philosophical Fiction intentionalist semantics is shown to be capable of taking significant account both of characteristically literary uses of language and of literary activity as a range of social practices. In part through seeking to defuse the well-known objections, Mikkonen uses this semantics to develop a powerful case for a nuanced version of the claim that certain forms of imaginative literature offer genuine and distinctive cognitive gains, with particular attention to how it is that they do so.” Martin Warner, Associate Fellow of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Warwick, UK Jukka Mikkonen is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Tampere, Finland.

Art, Language and Figure in Merleau-Ponty Excursions in Hyper-Dialectic Rajiv Kaushik This study identifies and explores the problem of relating language and art. To understand the relationship, Rajiv Kaushik places it in the broader context of Merleau-Ponty’s later thoughts. He closely examines Merleau-Ponty’s “figured” philosophy and hyper-dialecticism, using them to trace art and language back to a common root. Drawing on the thought of Saussure and Ricoeur, Kaushik shows how autofiguration connects to the common matrix of language and the work of art. He responds to the objections that Merleau-Ponty’s approach is anti-structuralist and ignorant of issues internal to the work of art by revealing its relevance to Heidegger, Gadamer and the project of hermeneutics.

Discourse on Free Will

Divine Self, Human Self

Desiderius Erasmus and Martin Luther

The Philosophy of Being in Two Gita Commentaries Ram-Prasad Chakravarthi

Comprising Erasmus’s “The Free Will” and Luther’s “The Bondage of the Will”, Discourse on Free Will is a landmark text in the history of Protestantism. Encapsulating the perspective on free will of two of the most important figures in the history of Christianity, it remains to this day a powerful, thoughtprovoking and timely work. Desiderius Eramsus (1466/9-1536) was the most renowned scholar of his age, a celebrated humanist and Classicist, and the first teacher of Greek at Cambridge. Martin Luther (1483-1546) was the founder of the German Reformation. His 95 Theses became a manifesto for reform of the Catholic Church and led to his being tried for heresy.

The Evolving God Charles Darwin on the Naturalness of Religion J. David Pleins In focusing on the story of Darwin’s religious doubts, scholars too often overlook Darwin’s positive contribution to the study of religion.  J. David Pleins traces Darwin’s journey in five steps. He begins with Darwin’s global voyage, where his encounter with religious and cultural diversity transformed his understanding of religion. Next, we follow Darwin as his doubts about traditional biblical religion take root, affecting his career choice and marriage to Emma Wedgwood. Pleins then examines Darwin’s secret notebooks as he searches for a materialist theory of religion. Finally, he considers Darwin’s later reflections on the religion question, as he wrestled with whether his views led to atheism, agnosticism, or a new kind of theism. J.

The Gita is a central text in Hindu traditions, and commentaries on it express a range of philosophical-theological positions. Two of the most significant commentaries are by Sankara, the founder of the Advaita or Non-Dualist system of Vedic thought and by Ramanuja, the founder of the Visistadvaita or Qualified Non-Dualist system. Their commentaries offer rich resources for the conceptualization and understanding of divine reality, the human self, being, the relationship between God and human, and the moral psychology of action and devotion. This book approaches their commentaries through a study of the interaction between the abstract atman (self) and the richer conception of the human person.  Chakravarthi Ram-Prasad is Professor of Comparative Religion and Philosophy and Associate Dean for Research, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, at Lancaster University, UK.

The Iconic Imagination Douglas Hedley Why is beauty consoling? The theistic religions assume a link between beauty, goodness and truth, all of which are viewed as Divine attributes. Creative fictions of great artistic beauty aspire to a certain truthfulness. A work of the imagination may deepen or purify our emotions such that we gain a clearer understanding of reality. Beauty is consoling because it resolves the contradictions of experience; art can be a conduit to a supreme transcendent unity. The Iconic Imagination is both a reflection on the redemptive potential of art, and an investigation of the traditions of occidental Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Islam in their confrontations with the particular power of art to represent the transcendent.

Phillips’ influential Wittgensteinian approach to the philosophy of religion without ever denying or ignoring its weaknesses. This is a sympathetic and reliable guide to an enormous and controversial body of work.” Duncan Richter, Professor of Philosophy, Virginia Military Institute, USA Mikel Burley elucidates and critically examines the work of these two philosophers in relation to various aspects of religion, including ritual, mystical experience, faith and reason, realism and non-realism, conceptions of eternal life, and the use of literature as a resource for the contemplation of religious and non-religious beliefs.

Excursions with Kierkegaard Others, Goods, Death, Final Faith Edward F. Mooney Noted Kierkegaard scholar Edward Mooney guides the reader through the major themes of the Danish philosopher’s life and thought. Each chapter frames a striking issue, usually encapsulated in a short passage from Kierkegaard, and pursues it directly and deeply. The book follows and re-animates Kierkegaard’s brilliant and humorous discussions of death and authenticity, of the maternal and paternal in faith and self-transformations, of self-deception and obsessive judgmentalism, of love and the search for stable centers, of subjectivity as refinement of responsiveness to others, the world, and all we can value. Mooney’s aim is to bring his matchless impulse and aspiration once more alive. Edward F. Mooney is Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Syracuse University, USA.

Free Will

2nd

edition

Sourcehood and its Alternatives Kevin Timpe Contemporary debates on free will are numerous and multifaceted. According to compatibilists, it is possible for an agent to be determined in all her choices and actions and still be free. Incompatibilists, on the other hand, think that the existence of free will is incompatible with the truth of determinism. There are also two dominant conceptions of the nature of free will. According to the first, it is primarily a function of being able to do otherwise than one in fact does. The second approach focuses on issues of sourcehood, holding that free will is primarily a function of an agent being the source of her actions in a particular way.  This book guides the student through all these debates, demarcating the different conceptions of free will and exploring the relationships between them. Kevin Timpe is Professor of Philosophy at Northwest Nazarene University, USA, and former Templeton Research Fellow at St. Peter’s College, University of Oxford, UK.

The Place of God and the God of Place in Philosophy and Theology Nick Trakakis

RELIGION

PlACe of God and the God of PlACe IN PhIloSoPhy ANd TheoloGy

The tendency after the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century has been for ‘place’ (the landscapes and dwellings that make meaningful social life possible) to be assimilated to objective ‘space’ (a homogenous, mappable territory). The past three centuries in the West have therefore witnessed the neglect, if not the active suppression of place, especially in science and philosophy. To redress this, Trakakis develops a dynamic understanding of place that opens up the way for a new understanding of God. In contrast with both the overly anthropomorphic view of God prevalent in contemporary philosophy of religion, and the highly metaphysical strands of Christian theology, a model of divinity is proposed that sees God as at once below (earthbound) and beyond (incomprehensible).   NICK TRAKAKIS

Cross-cultural Comparisons between Views of Human Nature in Greek and Shakespearean tragedy and the Mahabharata and Bhagavadgita Lourens Minnema TRAGIC VIEWS OF THE HUMAN CONDITION

Tragic views of the human condition are primarily embedded in stories. Only afterwards are these tragic views of the human condition expounded in theories of tragedy and in philosophical anthropologies. In the West, these stories constitute a specific narrative genre: ‘tragedy’. Minnema identifies embedded views of human nature in stories – issues such as coping with evil, suffering, loss, death, power, gender, injustice, fate, freedom – and explores them first in terms of their particular settings before comparing them crossculturally. Thus, each chapter represents one set of aspects of tragedy, studied in a comparative context. In the end, the underlying question is: are Indian views of human nature very different from the Western perspective? Cross-cultural Comparisons between Views of Human Nature in Greek

God and Evidence Problems for Theistic Philosophers Rob Lovering God and Evidence presents a new set of compelling problems for theistic philosophers. The problems pertain to three types of theistic philosopher, which Lovering defines here as ‘theistic inferentialists,’ ‘theistic non-inferentialists,’ and ‘theistic fideists.’  Lovering argues that each type of theistic philosopher faces a problem unique to his type and that they all share two particular problems. Some of these problems take us down an entirely new discursive path; others down a new discursive path branching off from an old one.

RELIGION Non-dualism in Eckhart, Julian of Norwich and Traherne A Theopoetic Reflection Charlton James The words ‘me,’ ‘mine,’ ‘you,’ ‘yours,’ can mislead us into feeling separate from other people. This book is an exhilarating contribution to the spirituality of non-duality or non-separation. Meister Eckhart, Mother Julian of Norwich and Thomas Traherne are interpreted as ‘theopoets’ of the body/soul who share a moderate non-dualism. Charlton draws on poetry, theology and philosophy to perceive fresh connections. The concept of non-duality is basic to much of Asian religion. On the other hand, Christianity has usually ignored its own non-dual roots. This text contributes to a recovery, in the West, of the vital, unifying power of non-dual awareness and connectedness. James Charlton is a poet and theological writer with an interest in transformative spiritual knowledge and experience, across traditions.

Pluralism The Future of Religion Kenneth Rose Theology of religions has defaulted in the last two decades to an epicyclic inclusivism which seeks to undermine pluralism with claims that it is covertly triumphalistic and that it mirrors the logic of exclusivism. With the exception of pioneers in the field such as John Hick and Paul Knitter, most major figures in this theological field have retreated from pluralism and promote versions of particularism and inclusivism. Pluralism: The Future of Religion argues for an apophatic pluralism that is motivated by the insight that it is impossible to secure universal assent for changeable bodies of religious teachings. These conclusions point us inevitably toward pluralism and lead us out of the inclusivistic impasse of contemporary theology in religions.

Religion and Revelation after Auschwitz Essays on Catholic Philosophy Balazs M. Mezei Following such authors as A. Dulles, R. Swinburne, or K. Ward, Balazs Mezei investigates some of the main problems of revelation and connects them to the general problem of religion today. Religion is considered in the perspective of the age “after Auschwitz”, an expression coined by Hans Jonas and further elaborated by J. B. Metz. Mezei develops the insights of these philosophers and investigates various aspects of religion and revelation “after Auschwitz”: contemporary theistic philosophy, phenomenology, art, mysticism, and the question of university education today. A fascinating amalgam of subjects and approaches, Religion and Revelation After Auschwitz is an important contribution to contemporary discussions on the possibility of Catholic philosophy.

Free Will in Philosophical Theology Kevin Timpe

RELIGION

RELIGION

Free Will in Philosophical Theology takes the most recent philosophical work on free will and uses it to elucidate and explore theological doctrines involving free will. Rather than being a work of natural theology, it is a work in what has been called clarification – using philosophy to understand, develop, systematize, and explain theological claims without first raising the justification for holding the theological claims that one is working with. Timpe’s aim is to show how a particular philosophical account of the nature of free will – an account known as source incompatibilism – can help us understand a range of theological doctrines.

The notion that hell is everlasting and also a place of unending suffering inevitably gives rise to the following question for theists: how could an omnipotent, all-good and all-loving God allow anyone to suffer the torments of hell for eternity? There have been several attempts to shore up the doctrine of hell in the face of this problem. Love focuses on ‘universalist’ attempts to face the problem and, in particular, on three contemporary philosophers who defend universal salvation: John Hick, Thomas Talbott and Marilyn McCord Adams. She argues that they fail in their attempts to make a plausible case for universalism. One of her chief criticisms is that there is significant tension between their universalist accounts and the value of human freedom.

The Moral Argument Paul Copan and Mark D. Linville The Moral Argument offers a wide-ranging defense of the necessary connection between God and objective moral values, moral duties, proper function, and human rights. It presents several versions of the moral argument for God’s existence; a survey of the history of the argument, including the more recent work of Robert Adams, John Hare, John Rist, and others; an assessment of competing metaethical views that attempt to ground or explain ethics; a defense of moral knowledge; and an assessment of the Euthyphro Dilemma (and related objections) for any theistic conception of moral values. Paul Copan is Professor and the Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics at Palm Beach Atlantic University, FL, USA.

Well-Being and Theism

Weighing Hearts

Linking Ethics to God William A. Lauinger

Character, Judgment, and the Ethics of Reading the Bible Stuart Lasine

“In Well-Being and Theism, William Lauinger defends a new and provocative theory of human well-being – the desire-perfectionist view. His account draws on insights from the objective list and desirefulfillment traditions, while challenging key assumptions of these views ... As his argument progresses, Lauinger introduces several distinctions which will be of interest to all theorists of well-being. He also connects the well-being debate to recent developments in psychology, metaethics, and the philosophy of religion. Full of examples from everyday life, Lauinger’s volume is a pleasure to read and a welcome contribution to the well-being debate.” Christopher M. Rice, Professor of Philosophy, Fordham University, USA

Issues involving ‘character’ have been the object of increasing interest and debate in recent years. Social psychologists attempt to determine the role of character as a cause of human behavior, moral philosophers explore the significance of character for understanding ethics and virtue, and literary scholars investigate the depiction of character in narrative. Weighing Hearts represents the first serious attempt to integrate all these approaches in order to gain a deeper and more precise understanding of how readers evaluate characters in biblical narrative. While the primary focus is on the Hebrew Bible, the author also includes several comparative analyses involving other ancient and modern literary works.

William A. Lauinger is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Chestnut Hill College, PA, USA.

“I have to confess to liking this book a lot. It is a literary, theoretical and autobiographical tour de force. Docherty’s acute critical sense ranges across the philosophical and cultural landscape to read Paul de Man, Giorgio Agamben, Hannah Arendt and the Lisbon Lions. A few more books like this and the humanities might be worth fighting for after all.” Martin McQuillan, Dean of Kingston University, UK This book explores what is at stake in our confessional culture. Thomas Docherty examines confessional writings from Augustine to Montaigne and from Sylvia Plath to Derrida, arguing that through all this work runs a philosophical substratum – the conditions under which it is possible to assert a confessional mode – that needs exploration and explication.

Self-Evident Truths? Human Rights and the Enlightenment (The Oxford Amnesty Lectures) Edited by Kate E. Tunstall The keywords of the Enlightenment – freedom, tolerance, rights, equality – are today heard everywhere, and they are used to endorse a wide range of positions, some of which are in perfect contradiction. Based on the critically acclaimed Oxford Amnesty Lectures series, this book brings together a number of major international figures to debate the history of freedom, tolerance, equality, and to explore the complex legacy of the Enlightenment for human rights. The lectures are published here with responses from other leading figures in the field. Kate E.

Science’s First Mistake

open new in PB

Delusions in Pursuit of Theory Ian Angell and Dionysios Demetis This ambitious book is written in reaction to the so-called ‘rigour’ that pervades much of today’s scientific research and practice. Taking examples from across the natural and social sciences, the authors examine the deep-seated assumptions that underpin the discovery of knowledge. They claim that all scientific methods are delusions in pursuit of theory. Their controversial argument uses Systems Theory, and in particular the concept of self-reference. For them, the very process of observing must mask the underlying delusions, tricking the human mind into developing a self-consistent description of itself. Ian Angell is Professor of Information Systems in the Department of Management at the London School of Economics, UK.

An Ethics of Nonviolence brings together his best essays on the topic, both classic works and more obscure pieces, as well as several important essays that have never been published.

Philippa Foot’s Moral Thought John Hacker-Wright Philippa Foot (1920-2010) is widely regarded as one of the most important Anglophone moral philosophers of the 20th century. This book represents the first comprehensive and accessible introduction to Foot’s work. It offers a complete chronological and thematic overview, emphasising the role Foot played in the development of contemporary virtue ethics. It situates her thought in the context of the historical development of analytic moral philosophy and discusses the various objections to her views. John HackerWright argues that there is a coherent, systematic moral perspective throughout Foot’s work that she does not make fully explicit. John Hacker-Wright is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Guelph, Canada.

Iain Brassington The field of biotechnology has provided us with radical revisions and reappraisals of the nature and possibilities of our biological existence. Yet beyond its immediate utility, does a life that is healthier, longer, or freer from disease make us ‘better’ or more moral people? Bioscience and the Good Life explores the complex relationship between modern biosciences and human flourishing, their sympathies and schisms, and the instances of their reconciliation. Here cognitive enhancement, longevity, and the spectacle of excellence in sports, are examined within the context of what constitutes a life well lived.

Bloomsbury Ethics Bloomsbury Ethics is a series of books written to help students explore, engage with and master key topics in contemporary ethics and moral philosophy.

Autonomy

Intuitionism

Andrew Sneddon

David Kaspar

Philosophers have various reasons to be interested in individual autonomy. Individual self-rule is widely recognized to be important. But what, exactly, is autonomy? In what ways is it important? And just how important is it? This book summarizes the attempts made by philosophers in the late 20th century to describe autonomy, providing an introduction to contemporary philosophical thought about the nature and significance of individual self-rule. Self-rule is divided into autonomy of choice and autonomy of persons. Unlike in most philosophical treatments of autonomy, Andrew Sneddon connects autonomy to empirical study of the psychology of action. The book presents the significance of self-rule through examination of political liberalism and paternalism.

Throughout modern history philosophers have tried to construct elaborate moral systems to determine what’s right. Recently, however, some have revived the position that we have intuitive knowledge of right and wrong. In this book, David Kaspar introduces and explores the perspective known as ‘Intuitionism’. Charting intuitionism’s fall in the twentieth century and its recent resurgence, Kaspar looks at the intuitionist approach to the most important topics in ethics, from moral knowledge to intrinsically good moral action. The book defends intuitionism against criticisms from competing metaethical schools, such as moral nihilism and ethical naturalism. It also takes on normative rivals, such as utilitarianism, Kantianism, and virtue ethics.

In the context of examining and connecting these different debates, the book presents its own unique form of moral realism according to which values may be belief-independent while also being characterized by an ontological pluralism that generates incommensurable moral disagreements and ‘tragic’ dilemmas.

Nafsika Athanassoulis Exploring how contemporary moral philosophy has tackled the issue of ‘character’, this is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to virtue ethics. Looking back to Aristotle and considering the work of key contemporary thinkers such as MacIntyre and McDowell, Virtue Ethics critically explores the historical development of the field and competing accounts within it. From here, the book goes on to defend an Aristotelian account of virtue ethics that emphasizes moral perception and practical wisdom and explore the potential use of this approach in medical ethics and other areas of applied ethics. In its final section, the book also explores new challenges and insights from psychology and potential future directions in virtue ethics.

The Future of Blasphemy

Anatomy of Failure

Speaking of the Sacred in an Age of Human Rights Austin Dacey

Philosophy and Political Action Oliver Feltham

“The world of blasphemy and religious conflict studies is in something of a constant whirl. Not only are contemporary situations constantly changing but the implications from them so often make us revisit the historical account of why blasphemy endures and persists into the modern world … Austin Dacey’s excellent The Future of Blasphemy gives us indispensible insight into both of these processes. Without such observation and knowledge, our attempts to think about and resolve such conflicts are potentially doomed to failure.” D ­ avid Nash, Professor of History, Oxford Brookes University and Author of Blasphemy in the Christian World “If universally adopted and practiced, Dacey’s proposed No Compliance Principle would force those offended, or pretending to be offended, by blasphemy to fight back with art, literature and argument rather than bombs and daggers.” – The New York Post Austin Dacey is a Representative to the United Nations, International Humanist and Ethical Union, and Instructor of Humanities at Polytechnic Institute of New York University, USA.

The Economy as Cultural System Theory, Capitalism, Crisis Edited by Todd Dufresne and Clara Sacchetti

The 1640s are a period of institutional failure and political disaster: the country plunges into civil war, every agent is naked. Five queries emerge that outline an anatomy of failure, isolating the points at which actors disagree, conflict flares up, and alliances dissolve: Who can act? On what grounds? Who is right about what is to be done? Why do we succeed or fail? If you and I split, were we ever united, and to what end? No mere philosophical abstractions, the Hobbesian and Lockean models of sovereign and contractual action have dominated the very practice of politics for centuries. Today it is time to recuperate the Leveller-agitator model of joint action, a model unique in its adequacy to the threat of failure and in its vocation for building the common-wealth.

The 2008 global crisis, unemployment, lack of retirement funds, bank bailouts... today, the “economy” is on everyone’s mind. This collection of essays explores contemporary capitalism from a variety of theoretical perspectives and by confronting the economy as a cultural system, a theory, and a driving force of everyday life in the West. The first part of the book discusses past and present representation of capitalism (from Hegel and Marx to Negri and Florida) along with their continuing impact. The second part focuses on capitalism as a locus of power and resistance, and maps possible responses to the current situation.

Civil Disobedience

Encountering Althusser

Protest, Justification and the Law Tony Milligan

Politics and Materialism in Contemporary Radical Thought Edited by Katja Diefenbach, Sara R. Farris, Gal Kirn, and Peter D. Thomas

Civil disobedience is examined here in the context of contemporary political activism, in the light of classic accounts by Thoreau, Tolstoy, and Gandhi to call for a broader attitude towards what civil disobedience involves. The question of violence is discussed, arguing that civil disobedience need only be aspirationally non-violent and that although some protests do not clearly constitute law-breaking they may render people liable to arrest.

These original essays by leading scholars aim to provide a new assessment of Althusser’s thought. The book discusses materialism and the different formulations of the relationship between politics and philosophy, Althusser’s interpretations of political thinkers (including Machiavelli, Deleuze and Gramsci), the resources he provides to critique political economy and politics in post-Marxist thought, and the theorization of ideology and politics.

Democracy

Multiculturalism

Gideon Calder

Monica Mookherjee

Democracy combines comparison of historical models, from those of ancient Athens and the early modern Republican traditions, with a sustained focus on contemporary trends and debates in political philosophy. It addresses the relationship of democracy to other key concepts such as liberty, equality and citizenship, aspects of political struggle and alternative economic systems. It explores each of these theoretical issues via topical examples, ranging from the smallscale experiments in local democratic control to national voting systems to international issues such as the European Union, climate change, and the possibility of global government.

Monica Mookherjee considers reparations for historical injustice as a form of minority ‘recognition’, indigenous land rights and the toleration of religion and culture. The book evaluates each issue from the perspective of moral commitments to equality and freedom. An instructive text for students, as well as of great interest to researchers in the field, the book argues that while multicultural debates always appeal to values of equality and freedom, a deeper reason for respecting diversity lies in the human capability to plan a life in accordance with one’s existing values and attachments.

“Richard Vernon provides a thorough, critical and thought-provoking examination of the answers that philosophers have given to this question. His book both informs and engages non-specialist readers and challenges the present preoccupation with historical justice and memory.” Janna Thompson, Professor of Philosophy at La Trobe University, Australia Should settler societies in North America and Australasia compensate the aboriginal peoples whom they dispossessed? Should Israel have accepted Germany’s compensation for Nazi extermination policies? Exploring recent and high profile cases, Vernon focuses on the issue of responsibility. Responsibility isn’t something inherited. How, then, can it fall to one generation to make good the wrongs done by another? The book addresses all the main issues and arguments and concludes by arguing for a forward-looking approach that focuses on the right of future generations to live just lives.

The Aesthetic Turn in Political Thought Nikolas Kompridis The growing exploration of political life from an aesthetic perspective has become so prominent that we can now speak of an “aesthetic turn” in political theory. But what does it mean and why an aesthetic turn? This collection of essays aims to answer such questions from a variety of perspectives, to think in a new way about the possibilities and weaknesses of democratic politics.The book first outlines the theoretical motivations and historical conditions that led to the turn to aesthetics. Essays then call attention to the presence of aesthetic themes and arguments in political theory as well as to parallels between theories of aesthetics and politics, revealing how much political theory can gain from making use of aesthetic modes of thought.

Politics of the One Concepts of the One and the Many in Contemporary Thought Edited by Artemy Magun This volume in the Political Theory and Contemporary Philosophy series examines one of the most important topics in contemporary political theory: how to conceptualize the relationship between the one and the many.  The essays discuss how to reconcile multiple ontologies without subsuming them to a totalitarian unity. While one school of thought (Deleuze, Negri) seeks to create a new ontology based on the many instead of the one, (which, politically, is close to anarchy), another proposes to understand the “one” as the “ultra-one” of the event (Badiou). In this groundbreaking work, leading thinkers explore these debates and offer alternative concepts. Building on Jean-Luc Nancy’s essay who proposes an ontology of “singular plurality,” contributors aim to synthesize the one and the many and suggest different ways of forming collectives, beyond the dominant representative political forms.

The Metaphysics of Terror The Incoherent System of Contemporary Politics Rasmus Ugilt This groundbreaking study aims to provide a philosophical analysis of the phenomenon of terror, in particular the political reactions to it, such as public anxiety and pre-emptive wars, and to re-articulate the understanding of metaphysics through a consideration of its political implications. The book reveals that the key feature of terror is “potentiality,” that is, terror is always about “what could happen” as opposed to “what is likely to happen.” Each chapter begins with an empirical discussion, examining such topics as the political practices in reaction to terror, the politics of fear, warfare, sovereignty, and the debates about the state of exception in relations to anti-terrorism laws. Rasmus Ugilt is Assistant Professor in the Department of Culture and Society, Aarhus University, Denmark.

This unique and engaging study argues that the Western concern with achieving happiness should be understood in terms of its relationship to the political ideologies that have emerged since the Enlightenment. To do so, each chapter examines the place that happiness occupies in the construction of ideologies that have formed the political terrain of the West, including liberalism, postmodernism, socialism, fascism, and religion. Throughout, Hegel’s phenomenology, Nietzsche’s genealogy, and Derrida’s account of deconstruction as reactions to modernization are used to show that the politics of happiness are always a clash of fundamental ideas of belonging, overcoming, and ethical responsibility.

He offers fascinating insights into the replication of practices that are required to constitute free peoples but that never eliminate the always-present threats that are the other side of their freedom. He also throws new light onto the arguments of a number of  political philosophers, past and present, including Locke and the threat posed by the now forgotten absolutist view of freedom.” Carole Pateman, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, UCLA

Ancient Mediterranean Philosophy

Arguing With Socrates

An Introduction Stephen R.L. Clark

Christopher Warne

Although the Greeks were responsible for the first systematic philosophy of which we have any record, they were not alone in the Mediterranean world and were happy to draw inspiration from other traditions; traditions that are now largely neglected by philosophers and scholars. This book tells the story of ‘Greek Philosophy’, paying due attention to its historical context and the contributions made by Egyptians, Hebrews, Persians and even barbarians from northern Europe. Stephen Clark provides a narrative history of the philosophical traditions that took shape over several centuries in the Mediterranean world and offers a comprehensive survey of this crucial period in the history of philosophy. Ideal for undergraduate students, this concise and accessible book provides a comprehensive guide to a fascinating period in the history of philosophy. Stephen R.L. Clark is Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Liverpool, UK.

Ranging from the Symposium to the Phaedo, this is a concise but authoritative guide to the most important and widely studied of Plato’s Socratic dialogues.

Lucan and Vergil as Theorists of Politics and Space Ika Willis “This is an extremely important book. Not only is its scholarship impeccable it forms part of a systematic rethinking of the Classical heritage. Rather than looking to the past for either edification or consolation Ika Willis reworks the tradition by looking at the ‘Romaness of now’. In so doing she makes ‘Rome’ part of the present. Drawing on leading figures within the European philosophical tradition she has written a work on Lucan and Vergil that allows for De Bello Ciuili, the Georgics and the Aeneid, to be read as contributing to a rethinking of the exigencies of the political today.” Andrew Benjamin, Monash University, Australia Ika Willis is Lecturer in Reception at the University of Bristol, UK.

The Presocratics and the Supernatural Magic, Philosophy and Science in Early Greece Andrew Gregory This book examines the relationship between magic, philosophy and the investigation of nature in presocratic Greece. Did the presocratic thinkers, often praised for their rejection of the supernatural, still believe in gods and the divine and the efficacy of magical practices? Did they use animism, astrology, numerology and mysticism in their explanations of the world? This book analyses the evidence in detail and argues that we need to look at each of these beliefs in context.

Cicero’s Ideal Statesman in Theory and Practice Jonathan Zarecki The resurgence of interest in Cicero’s political philosophy in the last twenty years demands a re-evaluation of Cicero’s ideal statesman and its relationship not only to Cicero’s political theory but also to his practical politics.

Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy as a Product of Late Antiquity Antonio Donato The book focuses on three topics: Boethius’ social/ political background, his notion of philosophy and its sources, and his understanding of the relation between Christianity and classical culture. These topics deal with issues that are of crucial importance for the exegesis of the Consolation. The study of Boethius’ social/ political background allows us to gain a better understanding of the identity of the character Boethius and to recognize his role in the Consolation. Examination of the possible sources of Boethius’ notion of philosophy and of their influence on the Consolation offers valuable instruments to evaluate the role of the text’s philosophical discussions and their relation to its literary features. Finally, the long-standing problem of the lack of overt Christian elements in the Consolation can be enlightened by considering how Boethius relies on a peculiar understanding of philosophy’s goal and its relation to Christianity that was common among some of his predecessors and contemporaries.

Jonathan Zarecki proposes three original arguments: firstly, that by the publication of his De Republica in 51 BC Cicero accepted that some sort of return to monarchy was inevitable. Secondly, that Cicero created his model of the ideal statesman as part of an attempt to reconcile the mixed constitution of Rome’s past with his belief in the inevitable return of sole-person rule. Thirdly, that the ideal statesman was the primary construct against which Cicero viewed the political and military activities of Pompey, Caesar and Antony, and himself.

“A scholarly marvel … A massive scholarly endeavour of the highest importance. For such an undertaking to be commissioned in this day and age is the stuff of which legends are made.” — Peter Jones, The Times “One of the great scholarly achievements of our time.” — Christopher Taylor, British Journal for the History of Philosophy “The Greek commentators are now being read around the world with an intensity of interest they have not received since they were first written.” — Myles Burnyeat, Classical Association News “The situation has changed radically during the last three decades, mostly thanks to Sorabji’s projects. The huge corpus of the Commentaria in Aristotelem Graeca is now intensively studied and the philosophy of the commentators is widely recognized as a crucial aspect of ancient thought.” — Riccardo Chiaradonna and Marwan Rashed, Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy

Kant on Spontaneity Marco Sgarbi “The idea of spontaneity is central to interpreting Kant’s philosophy and has been surprisingly underdeveloped in Kant’s English-language reception. Marco Sgarbi addresses this lacuna by insightfully and lucidly articulating the historical development and philosophical significance of spontaneity in Kant’s thought. This book will be an important resource for students and scholars” Eric S. Nelson, Associate Professor of Philosophy at University of Massachusetts Lowell, USA “An encyclopedic treatment of this central Kantian theme, a theme lying at the heart of the critical philosophy that, despite the massive Kantian literature, has apparently never been discussed in depth in any language.

Between Hegel and Spinoza A Volume of Critical Essays Edited by Hasana Sharp and Jason E. Smith For many philosophers and political theorists today, one must choose between Hegel or Spinoza. This collection of essays seeks to find the suppressed kinship between Hegel and Spinoza. Both philosophers offer vigorous and profound alternatives to the methodological individualism of classical liberalism. Likewise, they sketch portraits of reason that are context-responsive and emotionally contoured, offering an especially rich appreciation of our embodied and historical existence. The authors of this collection carefully lay the groundwork for a complex and delicate alliance between these two great iconoclasts, both within and against the Enlightenment tradition.

Kant: The Art of Judgment in Aesthetic Education Pradeep Dhillon With educational concerns at the core of her analysis, Dhillon examines Kant’s argument for making room for judgment in human affairs, shows how judgment serves to link knowledge to ethics and discusses the relation between aesthetics, art, and the faculty of judgment. Following Kant’s theory of judgment as it moves from the creation of artworks to unique instances of judgment, Dhillon explores ways to develop and refine the power of judgment and represents acts of judging in light of Kant’s theory. This is the first systematic treatment of what Kant’s theory of judgment means for all fields of learning, revealing the importance of education in: an important contribution to studies of aesthetics in both humanistic research and educational scholarship.

Languages of Intentionality A Dialogue Between Two Traditions on Consciousness Paul S. MacDonald “Paul S. MacDonald has written a beautifully clear, deeply well-informed, and up-to-date critical history of the puzzling but immensely important notion of intentionality. He seamlessly integrates discussion of phenomenological and analytical approaches to the topic, demonstrating their many points of contact. This book will not only be extremely useful to students of philosophy and their teachers as a core text on the subject, but also makes illuminating reading for professional philosophers.” E. J. Lowe, Professor of Philosophy at Durham University, UK This book considers the work of Brentano and Husserl and subsequent existentialist critiques. From there, it explores how empirical-analytic philosophers took up the topic and finally MacDonald presents a new ‘hybrid’ account of intentionality that will be a crucial work for scholars working on consciousness and the mind.

Devin Zane Shaw

In this important study, Patrice Philie establishes a conceptual narrative of 20th-Century accounts of rationality, the capacity to formulate and understand meaningful thoughts. Philie connects eight key thinkers from both the analytic and continental traditions: Frege, Husserl, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Davidson, Gadamer, Habermas and Rawls. In elucidating the nature of rationality, Philie shows that the two traditions as not as far apart as it is generally assumed. Rationality in 20th Century Philosophy argues that the best place to begin an investigation into human nature is with the nature of rationality.

American Philosophy A Tradition of Resistance Erin McKenna and Scott L. Pratt Born out of the social and political turmoil of the Civil War, American philosophy was a means of dealing with conflict and change. Placing the work of present-day American philosophers in the context of a history of resistance through a philosophical tradition marked by a commitment to pluralism, fallibilism and liberation, this book tells the story of a philosophy shaped by major events that call for philosophical reflection and illustrates the ways in which philosophy is relevant to lived experience. The book presents a survey of the historical development of American philosophy, as well as coverage of key contemporary issues in America including race theory, feminism, indigenous peoples, and environmentalism.

Richard Rorty Ronald A. Kuipers

Philosophy of History After Hayden White

Ronald A. Kuipers introduces Rorty’s complex thought through the exploration of three Rortyan personas: The Philosophical Therapist, The Liberal Ironist, and the Anticlerical Prophet. This exploration of Rorty’s multivalent yet deeply coherent intellectual identity is set against the background of Rorty’s personal motivations for studying philosophy, and for pursuing the controversial questions he did. The book portrays how, in conversation with the traditions of American Pragmatism, Analytic Philosophy, and Continental Thought, Rorty weaves his own unique and original philosophy. Rorty’s originality resides in his fresh approach to interrelated social and political problems, revealing a thinker who has important reasons for wading into controversial intellectual waters.

This anthology of new essays by an international group of pre-eminent scholars explores the groundbreaking work of Hayden White, whose thought, beginning with his seminal Metahistory (1973), has revolutionized the way we think about the philosophy of history, historiography, narrative, and the relation between history and literature. Individual essays relate White’s ideas to contemporary art, cognitive studies, Heideggerian hermeneutics, experimental history, Kant’s transcendental philosophy, analytic philosophy of history, Marxist cultural theory, the Kantian sublime, and American academic historiography.

Democratic Transformations

Progressive Education

Eight Conflicts in the Negotiation of American Identity Kerry T. Burch

A Critical Introduction John Howlett

“In Kerry Burch’s Democratic Transformations we have a unique approach to better understanding our country, our schools, and ourselves.  It’s a pleasure to read such a clearly articulated and accessible work that nonetheless problematizes many of the concepts, phrases, and ideas that we often take for granted. This work reminds us to never stop considering and reconsidering the terms and conditions under which we developed as a nation – and are continuing to grapple with as we reach for an authentic democracy.” Deron Boyles, Professor of Philosophy of Education, Georgia State University, USA This innovative book proposes that instead of ignoring or repressing the conflicted nature of American identity, these conflicts should be recognized as sites of pedagogical opportunity.

Rethinking Citizenship A Theory and Practice of Contemporary Critical Education Kevin D. Vinson and E. Wayne Ross Are we, as educators, preparing students to be effective citizens in a society that no longer is?  Today’s technological change means a difference in the very definition of society and is associated increasingly with the possibilities, problematics, and interpretations of globalization and of neoliberal and neoconservative cultural economics, some of today’s most significant and contested concepts. With respect to critical pedagogy, these shifts present both problems and possibilities, specifically with respect to social justice. What is meaningful citizenship in an age of separated connectedness or connected separation? In light of these issues, Vinson and Ross brilliantly work towards a contemporary critical pedagogy and its implications for citizenship education. Kevin D.

Learning to Flourish

Disposed to Learn

A Philosophical Exploration of Liberal Education Daniel R. DeNicola

Schooling, Ethnicity and the Scholarly Habitus Megan Watkins and Greg Noble

Learning to Flourish offers a lucid, penetrating, philosophical exploration of liberal learning. Daniel R. DeNicola weighs the views of both advocates and critics of the liberal arts, and interprets liberal education as aimed supremely at understanding and living a good life, as a vital tradition generating five competing but complementary paradigms that transcend theories of curriculum and pedagogy and are manifested in particular social contexts. He examines the transformative power of liberal education and its relation to such values as freedom, autonomy, and democracy, reflecting on the importance of intrinsic value and moral understanding. Finally, he considers age-old obstacles and current threats to liberal education, ultimately asserting its value for and urgent need in a global, pluralistic, technologically advanced society.

Disposed to Learn explores the relationship between ethnicity and dispositions towards learning. The authors challenge the tendency towards the essentializing of ethnicity within multiculturalism to argue for a more nuanced understanding of the relationship between culture and academic performance. Drawing on the work of Bourdieu, they examine how home and school practices produce particular attributes that are embodied as dispositions towards learning - the scholarly habitus.

Daniel R. DeNicola is Professor of Philosophy at Gettysburg College, USA.

Flint, Adam Barnard, and Paul Gibbs Drawing on the work of Derrida, Foucault and Heidegger, this engaging guide applies a deconstructive reading to the practices of the researching professional, aligning its present hegemony with a technological will-to-power. The authors explore context, issues, methodologies and methodological issues in context in considering key questions, including:

The Ethics of Community

Acts of Knowing

Nancy, Derrida, Morrison, and Menendez Ana M. Luszczynska

Claiming Critical Pedagogy for Higher Education Stephen Cowden and Gurnam Singh

“Spirited and insightful, The Ethics of Community explores the importance of community in the writings of Jacques Derrida and Jean-Luc Nancy and shows how major works of African American and Latino literature complement (and sometimes contest) these thinkers’ views. A unique contribution to the dialogue between literature and philosophy.” Gustavo Pérez Firmat, David Feinson Professor of Humanities, Columbia University, USA

Kevin J Flint is Senior Lecturer in Education at Nottingham Trent University, UK.

“Our engagement with both literature and philosophy must always crystallise as an ethical imperative and political necessity … Luszczynska’s remarkable scholarly vision initiates a synergetic dialogue between literature and philosophy that is groundbreaking and truly original.” Professor Berthold Schoene, Professor of English and Director of the Centre of Research in English, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK

Adam Barnard is Senior Lecturer in Human Services at Nottingham Trent University, UK.

Rethinking Knowledge within Higher Education Adorno and Social Justice Jan McArthur Rethinking Knowledge within Higher Education argues for a higher education that is neither a romantic idyll of learning for its own sake nor an instrumental institution designed to train a willing workforce for the prevailing economic system. Instead, using analysis informed by critical theorist Theodor Adorno, this book argues that higher education should have social and economic roles at its heart, and that these should encompass the needs of all society. Higher education has a special role in society as a place in which complex, contested and dynamic knowledge is engaged with, challenged and created. The realization of this purpose challenges traditional dichotomies between economic and social purposes, liberal and vocational education, and theory and practice.

Acts of Knowing aims to provide readers with a means of understanding the issues from the perspective of Critical Pedagogy: an educational philosophy which believes that ‘knowing’ must be freed from the constraints of the financial and managerialist logics which dominate the contemporary university. Cowden and Singh argue that the conception of education as simply a means for securing economic returns for the individual and for the society’s positioning in a global marketplace, represents a fundamentally impoverished conception of education, which impoverishes not just individuals, but society as a whole.

Echoes from Freire for a Critically Engaged Pedagogy Peter Mayo

Paulo Freire’s Philosophy of Education Origins, Developments, Impacts and Legacies Jones Irwin

In this concise and accessible text, Peter Mayo outlines some of the major concepts in Freire’s praxis. Chapters in the book include discussions of the State’s role in education – specifically higher education; a critical analysis of the dominant discourse in education centering on ‘competences’ and the type of slant this discourse takes; a study of adult education through a Freirean lens; a fresh perspective on the role of social movements in the contexts of social transformation; a new analysis of the relevance of Freirean concepts for transformative research, and an exploration of educators as intellectuals and social actors.The result is a compelling study of how Paulo Freire’s writings continue to resonate around the world, and of how we must continue to apply and interpret them anew.

“In this ground-breaking treatise, Jones Irwin argues eloquently for the growing relevance and significance of Paulo Freire’s philosophy, particularly in light of increasing social diversity and escalating political conflicts worldwide. In so doing, Irwin restores Freire’s innovative paradigm of literacy to its rightful place as the vital cornerstone in the evolution of his pedagogy of the oppressed – a pedagogy fueled by Freire’s deep passion for life, unyielding commitment to justice, and unwavering faith in the capacity of human beings to recreate the world. An outstanding addition to the existing literature on Paulo Freire and his contribution to education.” Antonia Darder, Leavey Presidential Endowed Chair of Ethics and Moral Leadership, Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, USA

If, in their different ways, Freire and Ranciere stage alternative pedagogies, Lewis himself stages a confrontation and conversation between them that opens up the classroom to new and more democratic theatrical and political possibilities.” Todd May, Class of 1941 Memorial Professor, Clemson University, USA “In this book Tyson Lewis provides a penetrating analysis of the work of Jacques Rancière as it pertains to the theory and practice of education. The book is an engaging, compelling, highly original and much needed intervention in current discussions about education, politics and democracy.” Gert Biesta, University of Stirling, UK Tyson E.

Education in a PostMetaphysical World Rethinking Educational Policy and Practice Through Jürgen Habermas′ Discourse Morality Christopher Martin “In Education in a PostMetaphysical World, Christopher Martin shows in a highly elaborated way how the articulation and the justification of norms and criteria of education can be carried out by the practice of public moral reasoning. In doing so he makes a great contribution to the conceptual analysis of education (and so to the philosophy of education in general).” Krassimir Stojanov, Professor and Chair of Philosophy of Education and Educational Theory at the Catholic University of Eichstaett-Ingolstadt, Germany “This book provides further evidence that Christopher Martin is today one of the most interesting and promising young philosophers in the field of educational philosophy. His reading and application of Habermas’ Discourse Theory of Morality is a bold and important contribution to contemporary scholarship in educational policy and will no doubt prove to be fruitfully contentious over the coming years.” Walter Okshevsky, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Education, Memorial University, Canada

A Hermeneutics of Religious Education David Aldridge What does it mean to understand a religion? How should the concept of truth be addressed in the contemporary classroom? What is the proper subject matter of religious education and how does it relate to other subjects and the school curriculum as a whole? A Hermeneutics of Religious Education argues that although the tradition of philosophical hermeneutics has transformed both educational thought and the academic discipline of religious studies, the literature of religious education pedagogy has paid only limited attention to these developments. To engage with them fully entails a transformation of our understanding of religious education and its importance in a curriculum of the twenty-first century.

Philosophical Perspectives on Social Cohesion New Directions for Educational Policy Mary Healy Philosophical Perspectives on Social Cohesion challenges the basis of how we characterize civic bonds and how we best organize schools to encourage and develop them. Mary Healy argues that metaphors and social imaginaries often give a framework for considering our interrelatedness. She reexamines the metaphor of fraternity, used as a precursor to elements of the ‘Big Society’, arguing that such attempts to align fraternity with liberty are mistaken and that equality plays a vital role. At a time of increasing diversity of school provision, this pertinent book indicates the connection between how we organize school structures and the models of citizenship we value.

The Pedagogy of Objects Politics, Aesthetics, and the Project of Learning Matthew Carlin and Nathan Clendenin The Pedagogy of Objects attempts to reorient our thinking about education toward a world made up of autonomous objects.  This innovative book puts forth the argument that through discussing the way that objects teach we can reconfigure some of the most pressing political problems confronting education today including increasing forms of institutionality; the often debilitating relationships that exist between teachers and students; the obsessive compulsion to equate education with verification; the manufacture of self-management inherent to curriculum design; and the inability to think vocationalism in a non-instrumental manner; among other issues. Matthew Carlin is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Critical and Visual Studies program at Pratt Institute, USA.

Education as a Human Right

Educating the Postmodern Child The Struggle for Learning in a World of Virtual Realities Fiachra Long Educating the Postmodern Child traces the philosophical challenges posed by children living in an information age. Fiachra Long explores the construction of childhood in today’s society arguing that the postmodern child is exposed to the public world before its time and he explores the significance of this public/ private shift. Issues considered include education, appearance, space, empowerment, globality, tactility, talent, and visibility. After setting the context, each chapter uses a phenomenological approach to describe experiences common across computer-literate children today. Chapters draw on sources in the history of ideas to critique the situation described, provide a rich combination of educational and philosophical theory and apply some speculative concepts to the situation of children. Fiachra Long is Senior Lecturer in Education at the University College Cork, Ireland.

Principles for a Universal Entitlement to Learning Tristan McCowan Education is widely recognized as a fundamental human right, yet the nature of the right remains unclear. Is it an entitlement to go to school, to acquire particular forms of knowledge or develop particular skills or attributes? And why exactly is education so important that we might defend all people’s right to it? This book provides a much-needed exploration of this key contemporary issue. As well as basic education, there are also discussions of higher and lifelong education, of human rights education, and of the intersection of rights-based approaches with others such Amartya Sen’s ‘capabilities’.

Mary Healy is a Senor Lecturer in Education at the University of Roehampton, UK.

Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’ and Contemporary Thought Revisiting the Horror with LacoueLabarthe Edited by Nidesh Lawtoo Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and Contemporary Thought includes the first publication in English of philosopher Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe’s essay, ‘The Horror of the West’. In the company of Lacoue-Labarthe, leading scholars explore new readings of Conrad’s text from a full range of theoretical perspectives, including deconstructive, psychoanalytic, narratological and postcolonial approaches. Drawing on the very latest insights of contemporary thought, this is an essential study of one of the most important literary texts of the 20th century.

Estimating Emerson An Anthology of Criticism from Carlyle to Cavell Edited by David LaRocca As ‘America’s Plato,’ it is perhaps not surprising that Emerson has drawn a great deal of critical (in both senses of the word) attention. What is surprising, however, is the fact that so much of the attention was given by writers and thinkers as varied as Thomas Carlyle, Matthew Arnold, the James brothers, Walt Whitman, D. H. Lawrence, George Santayana, Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, John Updike, and William Gass. Estimating Emerson collects for the first time the writing of these and many other notable writers as they consider the impact of Emerson on their life and work.

An acknowledged authority on Blanchot and his peers, Leslie Hill guides the reader through some of the most difficult and exciting writing produced after the Second World War: his remarks on the imbrications of literature and philosophy are never less than illuminating.

The Late Walter Benjamin

Edward T. Duffy

John Schad

Secular Mysteries: Stanley Cavell and English Romanticism serves as both introduction to Cavell for Romanticists, and to the larger question of what philosophy means for the reading of literature, as well as to the importance and relevance of Romantic literature to Cavell’s thought. The turn to romanticism of America’s most distinguished “ordinary-language” philosopher is shown to be tied to the neo-Romantic claim that far from being merely an illustrator of the truths discovered by philosophy, poetry is its equal partner in the instituting of knowledge.

The Late Walter Benjamin is a documentary novel that juxtaposes the life and death of Walter Benjamin with the days, hours and minutes of a working-class council estate on the edge of London in post-war Austerity England. The novel centres on one particular tenant who claims to be Walter Benjamin, and only ever uses words written by Benjamin, apparently oblivious that the real Benjamin committed suicide 20 years earlier whilst fleeing the Nazis. Initially set in the sixties, the text slips back to the early years of the estate and to Benjamin’s last days, as he moves across Europe seeking ever-more desperately to escape the Third Reich. Through this fictional narrative, John Schad explores not only the emergence of Benjamin’s thinking from a politicised Jewish theology forced to confront the rise of Nazism but also the implications of his utopian Marxism, forged in exile, for the very different context of a displaced working class community in post-war Britain.

The Transformative Humanities

Samuel Beckett and Arnold Geulincx

A Manifesto

Tracing ‘ A Literary Fantasia’ David Tucker

Mikhail Epstein Edited and Translated by Igor E. Klyukanov Foreword bv Caryl Emerson Mikhail Epstein outlines the “desirable” disciplines and methodologies that may emerge in the humanities in response to the new realities of the twenty-first century. Are the humanities a purely scholarly field, or should they have some active, constructive supplement? We know that technology serves as the practical extension of the natural sciences, and politics as the extension of the social sciences. Both technology and politics are designed to transform what their respective disciplines study objectively. The Transformative Humanities: A Manifesto addresses the question: Is there any activity in the humanities that would correspond to the transformative status of technology and politics? It argues that we need a practical branch of the humanities which functions similarly to technology and politics, but is specific to the cultural domain.

“Every now and again, rarely, a book comes along that offers a definitive account of a particularly vexing critical question this study is one of them. Drawing on a range of published and unpublished materials, David Tucker offers a comprehensive and sensitive examination of the role Geulincx plays in Beckett’s writing and aesthetics, and in doing so makes us think differently about Beckett’s work.” Mark Nixon, Director, Beckett International Foundation, and Lecturer, University of Reading, UK Samuel Beckett once wrote that were he in the ‘unfortunate position’ of a critic studying his work, one of his points of departure would be the ideas of the seventeenth-century philosopher, Arnold Geulincx. This is the first full-length study to document the extent of the influence Geulincx’s philosophy had on Beckett’s prose and late drama.

Coleridge and Kantian Ideas in England, 1796-1817 Coleridge’s Responses to German Philosophy Monika Class

L iterature

L iterature

Samuel Taylor Coleridge was the central figure in the British transmission of German idealism in the nineteenth century. The advent of Immanuel Kant in Coleridge’s thought is traditionally seen as the start of the poet’s turn towards an internalized Romanticism. Demonstrating that Coleridge’s discovery of Kant came at an earlier point than has been previously recognized, this book examines the historical roots of Coleridge’s life-long preoccupation with Kant over a period of twenty years from the first extant Kant entry until the publication of his autobiography. Drawing on previously unpublished contemporary reviews of Kant and seeking socio-political meaning outside the literary canon in the English radical circles of the 1790s, Monika Class here establishes conceptual affinities between Coleridge’s writings and that of Kant’s earliest English mediators and in doing so revises Coleridge’s allegedly non-political response to Kant.

Contemporary Caribbean Writing and Deleuze Literature Between Postcolonialism and Post-Continental Philosophy Lorna Burns Contemporary Caribbean Writing and Deleuze maps a new intellectual and literary history of postcolonial Caribbean writing and thought spanning from the 1930s surrealist movement to the present, crossing the region’s language blocs, and focused on the interconnected principles of creativity and commemoration. Exploring the work of René Ménil, Édouard Glissant, Wilson Harris, Derek Walcott, Antonio Benítez-Rojo, Pauline Melville, Robert Antoni and Nalo Hopkinson, this study reveals the explicit and implicit engagement with Deleuzian thought at work in contemporary Caribbean writing.Uniting for the first time two major schools of contemporary thought - postcolonialism and postcontinental philosophy - this study establishes a new and innovative critical discourse for Caribbean studies and postcolonial theory beyond the oppositional dialectic of colonizer and colonized.

Weakness A Literary and Philosophical History Michael O’Sullivan “A real tour de force in literary theory and criticism that relates to an impressive array of issues, ideas, and arguments, and offers much for students of literature, literary theory, and philosophy to reflect on and think through. An important book, and definitely worth reading.” Zhang Longxi, City University of Hong Kong Beginning with Plato and Aristotle, this first book-length study of the concept explores weakness as it is interpreted by Lao Tzu, Nietzsche, Derrida, the Romantics, Dickens and the Modernists. It examines what feminist writers Simone de Beauvoir and Luce Irigaray have made of the gendered biomythology constructed around the figure of the “weaker vessel” and it considers related notions such as im-potentiality, a “syntax of weakness” and human vulnerability in the work of Agamben, Beckett and Coetzee.

Blake, Deleuzian Aesthetics, and the Digital Claire Colebrook Drawing on recent theories of digital media and on the materiality of words and images, this fascinating study makes three original claims about the work of William Blake. First, Blake offers a critique of digital media. His poetry and method of illuminated printing is directed towards uncovering an analogical language. Second, Blake’s work can be read as a performative. Finally, Blake’s work is at one and the same time immanent and transcendent, aiming to return all forms of divinity and the sacred to the human imagination, stressing that ‘all deities reside in the human breast,’ but it also stresses that the human has powers or potentials that transcend experience and judgement: deities reside in the human breast.

Dante and the Sense of Transgression

Agamben’s Joyful Kafka

The Trespass of the Sign’ William Franke

Finding Freedom Beyond Subordination Anke Snoek

In Dante and the Sense of Transgression, William Franke combines literary-critical analysis with philosophical and theological reflection to cast new light on Dante’s poetic vision. Conversely, Dante’s medieval masterpiece becomes our guide to rethinking some of the most pressing issues of contemporary theory. His work as a poet culminates in the Paradiso in a transcendence of language towards a purely ineffable, mystical experience beyond verbal expression. Yet Dante conveys this experience, nevertheless, in and through language and specifically through the transgression of language, violating its normally representational and referential functions. Paradiso’s dramatic sky-scapes and unparalleled textual performances stage a deconstruction of the sign that is analyzed philosophically in the light of Blanchot, Levinas, Derrida, Barthes, and Bataille, as transgressing and transfiguring the very sense of sense.

Both Giorgio Agamben and Franz Kafka are best known for their gloomy political worldview. A cautious study of Agamben’s references on Kafka, however, reveals another dimension right at the intersection of their works: a complex and unorthodox theory of freedom. The inspiration emerges from Agamben’s claims that ‘it is a very poor reading of Kafka’s works that sees in them only a summation of the anguish of a guilty man before the inscrutable power’. Agamben’s work sheds new light on these questions and arrives, through Kafka, at different strategies for freedom at the point where this freedom is most blatantly violated.

Contagious Metaphor Peta Mitchell “Peta Mitchell’s highly readable Contagious Metaphor explores medical and popular beliefs and practices about contagion – and the metaphors that shape them. Reaching back through the nineteenth century and then ranging widely through more recent decades, she shows how ambivalence about figurative language and misunderstanding of metaphor itself has shaped our responses to epidemics both imagined and experienced. From miasma to Dionysian frenzy to memes on the internet, Mitchell challenges our assumptions about both language and contagion, providing engaging and provocative analyses of examples from film, philosophy, linguistics and literature.” Pamela K. Gilbert, University of Florida, USA In Contagious Metaphor, Peta Mitchell offers an innovative, interdisciplinary study of the metaphor of contagion and its relationship to the workings of language. Examining both metaphors of contagion and metaphor as contagion, Contagious Metaphor suggests a framework through which the emergence and often epidemic-like reproduction of metaphor can be better understood.

Ethics in British Children’s Literature Unexamined Life Lisa Sainsbury Ethics in British Children’s Literature explores the extent to which contemporary writing for children might be considered philosophical, tackling ethical spheres relevant to and arising from books for young people, such as naughtiness, good and evil, family life, and environmental ethics. Rigorously engaging with influential moral philosophers, from Aristotle through Kant and Hegel, to Arno Leopold, Iris Murdoch, Mary Midgley, and Lars Svendsen, this book demonstrates the narrative strategies employed to engage young readers as moral agents.

In this original, interdisciplinary approach to evil in French literature, Damian Catani links literary depictions of evil with cultural events to chart a history of the concept in some of the most important texts in modern literature. Beginning with Balzac and Baudelaire, Catani covers the restoration and the Second Empire before interpreting how Catholic stereotypes of the ‘evil feminine’ and new scientific theories impacted the work of Lautréamont and Zola. Moving into the twentieth century, evil is then explored in terms of the Self, power, knowledge and politics through readings of Proust, Céline, Sartre and Foucault. By seamlessly bringing together aesthetic, philosophical, historical and ideological concerns to read key French writers from the 18th to the 21st century, this study argues why a broader treatment of literary evils is vital to understanding our contemporary moral and political climate.

Mindful Aesthetics Literature and the Science of Mind Edited by Chris Danta and Helen Groth In the last few decades, literary critics have increasingly drawn insights from cognitive neuroscience to deepen and clarify our understanding of literary representations of mind. While cognitive literary studies has reinforced how central the concept of mind is to aesthetic practice from the classical period to the present, critics have questioned its literalism and selective borrowing of scientific authority. Mindful Aesthetics presents both these perspectives as part of a broader consideration of the ongoing and vital importance of shifting concepts of mind to both literary and critical practice.   Chris Danta is Senior Lecturer in English in the School of English, Media and Performing Arts at the University of New South Wales.

The Textual Life of Airports

Iris Murdoch: Philosophical Novelist

Reading the Culture of Flight Christopher Schaberg

Miles Leeson

“For most of us, time spent in airports is filled with inconvenience, discomfort, and often explicit insult to our psychological well-being. Reading Christopher Schaberg’s The Textual Life of Airports is guaranteed to dispel your tedium and inspire you to join along with him in a rich foray of cultural inquiries about these colossi and the complex narratives they convey.  From the canon of airport reading to aesthetic images of baggage, from the resonances of 9/11 to the semiotic absence and presence of birds in the terminals, Schaberg approaches airports with a keen critical energy that will make you welcome your next four-hour layover in Atlanta or your missed connection in Newark as an opportunity to explore his fascinating insights.  I have sometimes felt that all the good topics in cultural studies have been exhausted; this book restores my faith that fertile ground remains.  I savored every paragraph.” Randy Malamud, Professor of English, Georgia State University, USA

Narrative Care Biopolitics and the Novel Arne De Boever The twenty-first century has been marked by a series of crises in which life’s vulnerability was brutally exposed. As a result, care has moved to the forefront of ethical and political debates. Narrative Care shows that care is also an aesthetic issue: through closereadings of J.M. Coetzee’s Slow Man, Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, Paul Auster’s The Book of Illusions, and Tom McCarthy’s Remainder, it investigates how literary representations of care are shaped by and have helped shape discussions about the welfare state and pastoral care; about the concentration camps and bare life; about Sadism and the realist aesthetic; and about how the rise of the novel as a genre is related to all of the above.
