Two Lessons on Lacan Introduction by K en n et h r ei n h A r d


Letter from the Philosophy Editor: It is with great pleasure that I present the Columbia University Press philosophy catalog for 2018. These books, which span subjects from aesthetics to ethics, critical life studies, Asian studies, philosophy of religion, and critical and political theory, reflect the interdisciplinary and global approach of our list and exemplify the quality of scholarship that we value. Among the many outstanding titles in this year’s wide-ranging catalog several deserve special notice. We are especially proud to present titles from Roland Barthes, Album, which collects unpublished correspondence beginning in his adolescence and sanatorium years, and from Jacques Derrida, Artaud the Moma, his controversial Museum of Modern Art talk on Antonin Artaud. Alain Badiou and Barbara Cassin return with the provocatively titled There’s No Such Thing as a Sexual Relationship, which inhabits Lacan’s essay L’Etourdit and scours it for insights on knowledge and truth. And Elizabeth Grosz gives us her groundbreaking The Incorporeal, which proposes an entirely new way to think about the new materialisms. Other innovative projects include several titles in the areas of critical life studies, environmental humanities, and LGBTQ studies. Speculative Taxidermy by Giovanni Aloi views the nonhuman turn through the lens of natural history and art in the Anthropocene. Foucault’s Futures by Penelope Deutscher examines the biopolitics of reproduction. Energy Dreams by Michael Marder is a surprising look at what energy actually is and does, an original account that challenges our assumptions about its negative environmental impacts. The collection Extinction Studies, edited by Deborah Bird Rose, Thom van Dooren, and Matthew Chrulew, introduces a new field through evocative narrative, rich ethnography, and insightful historiography. And The Ethics of Opting Out by Mari Ruti offers a new theoretical agenda that revitalizes the field by bringing together the contentious divisions that have long defined it. Finally, we are delighted to highlight our flagship Asian titles. Taking Back Philosophy by Bryan van Norden is a lively, passionate, and powerful plea for the discipline’s global traditions, and Hans-Georg Moeller’s and Paul D’Ambrosio’s subtle and witty Genuine Pretending shows a Zhuangzi that you have never seen before. I am sure that you will find much to enjoy and ponder in these pages. I, and my colleagues at Columbia University Press, look forward to continuing our dialogue. Wendy Lochner Publisher, Philosophy, Religion, Political Theory, Animal and Critical Life Studies

Speculative Taxidermy

The Incorporeal Ontology, Ethics, and the Limits of Materialism

Natural History, Animal Surfaces, and Art in the Anthropocene

Elizabeth Grosz

Giovanni Aloi G I O VA N N I A L O I

"Speculative Taxidermy makes a fascinating contribution to the nonhuman turn and invites us to find new ways to envisage the relationships between human and nonhuman animals. It will be a significant text for ethical and political debates in animal studies and the environmental humanities."

"A remarkable and groundbreaking work, The Incorporeal intensifies Grosz's already complex and nuanced account of bodies and difference: incorporeality is not to be equated with mind, ideality or the disembodied. It is, rather, part of the volatility that Grosz has always discerned in bodies, human and nonhuman."

Posthumous Life

"This superb book haunts in all of the best and most disquieting ways: memories of a future already lost to ourselves, with writers who illuminate those registers of nonlife and postlife that arise when all of the living-on and living-through of humans has been exhausted or self-extinguished. The chapters serve as a chanting of rites to the nonhuman animal, to plants, to birds, to the inorganic, to the planet, to the ends of stories."-Gregory Seigworth, Millersville University

The Sarcophagus of Identity Tribalism, Nationalism, and the Transcendence of the Self

Kuhn’s Legacy E P I S T E M O L O G Y,

Kuhn's Legacy Epistemology, Metaphilosophy, and Pragmatism



James M. Skelly

Bojana Mladenović


“Drawing on his own research and personal experiences, including his lawsuit against the U.S. Secretary of Defense, [James M. Skelly], makes a compelling case for resisting the identities that other individuals and institutions try to impose upon us—an insight that has particular relevance in an age of ever increasing surveillance by governments and corporations."—Daniel Ellsberg, author of Papers on the War, Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers, and Risk, Ambiguity and Decision

“Mladenović’s Kuhn may well be the closest to Kuhn’s Kuhn that we are ever going to get. This book is a deeply impressive, thorough, fair weighing of how to think Kuhn’s philosophy of science. With a rich diet of comparisons, Mladenović takes one through the voluminous literature on Kuhn, setting out a compelling case for his excellence and contemporary relevance." —Rupert Read, University of East Anglia $60.00 / £49.95 cloth 978-0-231-14668-5 2017 256 pages

Heidegger's Black Notebooks

The Duplicity of Philosophy's Shadow


Heidegger, Nazism, and the Jewish Other

Black Notebooks z

Elliot R. Wolfson



Responses to AntiSemitism Edited by Andrew J. Mitchell and Peter Trawny


Andrew J. Mitchell and Peter Trawny

In spite of Heidegger’s explicit anti-Semitic statements, Elliot R. Wolfson reveals some crucial aspects of his thinking—including criticism of the biological racism and militant apocalypticism of Nazism—that betray an affinity with dimensions of Jewish thought: the triangulation of the concepts of homeland, language, and peoplehood; Jewish messianism and the notion of historical time as the return of the same that is always different; inclusion, exclusion, and the status of the other; the problem of evil in kabbalistic symbolism. $30.00 / £25.00 paper 978-0-231-185639 $90.00 / £75.00 cloth 978-0-231-18562-2 May 2018 336 pages

“There can be no last word on Heidegger’s Black Notebooks and the incomprehensible and unjustifiable positions of one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. Only a collective, plurivocal approach can help us read what is illegible. Avoiding the extremes of justification and excommunication, the authors in this collection succeed in this painful but necessary task." —Catherine Malabou, Kingston University and U.C.

Foucault's Futures

His Life and Philosophy

A Critique of Reproductive Reason

Alain Badiou and Barbara Cassin Translated by Susan Spitzer. Introduction by Kenneth Reinhard.



“Short, clear, and powerful. It succinctly overcomes the deadlock between pro- and antiHeideggerians embedded in the debate about his Nazism while shedding light on the intimate, subtle connections between Heidegger's fundamental ontology and his relations (both intellectual and amorous) with women." —Adrian Johnston, coauthor of Self and Emotional Life: Philosophy, Psychoanalysis, and Neuroscience $20.00 / £14.95  paper 978-0-231-15797-1 $60.00 / £49.95  cloth 978-0-231-15796-4

“Foucault's Futures opens up a new future for Foucault by showing how profoundly, and how unexpectedly, his account of biopolitical power informs the procreative politics implicit in his various writings on sex.... Penelope Deutscher proposes and enacts a critical ethics that mobilizes the 'suspended reserves' of Foucault... to generate striking conceptual convergences that make for a brilliantly productive critique of reproductive reason."—Lee Edelman, Tufts University $30.00 / £24.95 paper 978-0-231-17641-5

Foucault/Derrida Fifty Years Later

Concealing the Effort of Art from Aristotle to Duchamp

The Futures of Genealogy, Deconstruction, and Politics

Paolo D'Angelo

Edited by Olivia Custer, Penelope Deutscher, and Samir Haddad

$105.00 / £87.95 cloth 978-0-231-17194-6

In this book, the first to consider sprezzatura in its own right, philosopher of art Paolo D’Angelo reconstructs the history of concealing art, from ancient rhetoric to our own times. The precept that art must be hidden turns up in a number of fields, from cosmetics to interior design, politics to poetry, the English garden to shabby chic. Through exploring different articulations of this idea, D’Angelo shows the paradox of aesthetics: art hides that it is art, but in doing so it reveals itself to be art and becomes an assertion about art.

$30.00 / £24.00 cloth 978-0-231-17582-1

“The essays of this volume for the first time offer a comprehensive and profound analysis of the many aspects of what, retrospectively, can be called the Foucault-Derrida-debate and thus help us to better understand an alternative that—often unnoticed and unacknowledged— has shaped for over half a century large fields of critical thinking."—Christophe Menke, GoetheUniversität, Frankfurt/Main, Germany $35.00 / £27.95 paper 978-0-231-17195-3

Why Only Art Can Save Us

Against Reason

Aesthetics and the Absence of Emergency

Schopenhauer, Beckett and the Aesthetics of Irreducibility

Santiago Zabala

Anthony Barron Foreword by Matthew Feldman

"Zabala's extraordinary book strikes at the very heart of our spiritual predicament. From austerity politics to security measures, everything is legitimized with the axiom that we live in a state of emergency. The first task of the critique of ideology today is thus to dispel this myth of emergency—something that Zabala does brilliantly, combining theoretical stringency with immense readability." —Slavoj Žižek, author of Less Than Nothing and Absolute Recoil

Using Schopenhauer's thought as a presiding interpretative framework, Anthony Barron demonstrates how the widespread presence of philosophical and theological ideas in Samuel Beckett's creative texts signifies less about his personal convictions than it does about his authorial aims. He thereby highlights the ways in which discursive ideas were appropriated and manipulated by Beckett for purely literary ends. $50.00 paper 978-3-8382-1125-1 2017 450 pages IBIDEM PRESS

From the Absurd to Revolt Dynamics in Albert Camus's Thought

Adorno's Theory of Philosophical and Aesthetic Truth Owen Hulatt

Edited by Piotr Mróz and Maciej Kałuża

This book presents essays devoted to two key issues of Albert Camus thought: absurdity and rebellion. Contributors explore the problem of transition in Camus's The Rebel from philosophical considerations over the absurd in the human condition to the attitude of rebellion. In addition there is analysis of The Outsider, Camus's rebellion from the perspective of contemporary humanities, and comparative studies between Camus, Dostoyevsky, Kolakowski, and Iwaszkiewicz.

"There is no other book that more lucidly and compellingly reconstructs the difficult relationship between epistemology and aesthetics in Adorno's work.... For anyone interested in the status and fate of art in modernity, this book will be a landmark."—Espen Hammer, author of Adorno's Modernism: Art, Experience, and Catastrophe $60.00 / £49.95 cloth 978-0-231-17724-5 2016 272 pages

Framing Production and Value in Contemporary Performing Arts

Edited by Bernd Kracke and Marc Ries

Livia Andrea Piazza

Which concepts of the new can be identified within contemporary performing arts? Livia Andrea Piazza addresses art production in neoliberal capitalism as well as its discourse. Combining research based on sociology, economics, art theory, and philosophy with studies of European contemporary theater and dance, Piazza defines the poetics and politics of the new as well as concrete actions to trigger change in the world of performing arts. $40.00 paper 978-3-8638-8737-7 2017  210 pages BARBARA BUDRICH PUBLISHERS

This book examines the "expansion of the senses" provoked by the rise of new moving media images. Contributors investigate cinema's "cinaesthetic" experience, the blurring of the sensuous self and the transgression of borders already inscribed in media. They explore the interplay among new media's moving images and the transformation of our sensuous and mental capacities through techniques of modulation, simulation, prosthetics, networking, and digital cartography. $35.00 paper 978-3-8376-3362-7 2016 432 pages TRANSCRIPT-VERLAG

Of Time and Lamentation

God and the Mathematics of Infinity

Reflections on Transience

What Irreducible Mathematics Says about Godhood

Raymond Tallis

H. Chris Ransford Raymond Tallis seeks to find a place at which the scientific and humanistic views of humanity can be reconciled. By placing human consciousness at the heart of time, he shows that we are "more than cogs in the universal clock, forced to collaborate with the very progress that pushes us towards our own midnight." Tallis believes our temporal lives deserve a richer attention than is afforded by the equations of mathematical physics.

Using mathematics, H. Chris Ransford addresses humankind's abiding core debate on the meaning of spirituality and God. He explores key questions in this debate including why does evil exist if there is a God? Ranford follows allowable mathematics wherever it leads without taking sides or proffering opinions.

On Folding Towards a New Field of Interdisciplinary Research




Philosophies of Happiness A Comparative Introduction to the Flourishing Life

Diana Lobel

Edited by Michael Friedman and Wolfgang Schäffner DIANA LOBEL

Folding as a material and structural process offers a new methodology to think about the close relationship of matter, form, and code. It undoes old dichotomies, such as the organic and the inorganic or nature and technology, and blurs the boundaries between experimental, conceptual, and historical approaches. This anthology explores this new interdisciplinary field and its disciplinary impact, ranging from materials science, biology, architecture, and mathematics to literature and philosophy. $35.00 paper 978-3-8376-3404-4 2016 180 pages TRANSCRIPT-VERLAG 10

"Diana Lobel’s Philosophies of Happiness engagingly examines a broad range of perspectives—encompassing the ancient Greeks, key Asian traditions, and central figures in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam—to conclude with more contemporary approaches such as mindfulness. On Lobel’s model, 'the first building block of a life of happiness is attentive awareness.' This keen insight underlies not only her approach to flourishing but also the very spirit of this outstanding book." -John D.

Aesthetic Practice of Cookery

Jonathan K. Crane

Edited by Nicolaj van der Meulen and Jörg Wiesel

Jonathan K. Crane

“An accomplished ethicist and philosopher, Crane crafts a careful argument for what it means to eat well. Following a trajectory set by Michael Pollan and others, Eating Ethically is set apart by its interdisciplinarity, using biblical scholarship, nutritional science, biochemistry, and medicine to effectively buttress the idea that eating is an activity that resonates in both personal and social contexts." —Benjamin Zeller, coeditor of Religion, Food, and Eating in North America $35.00 / £27.95 cloth 978-0-231-17344-5 2017 256 pages

Kitchen, cooking, nutrition, and eating have become omnipresent cultural topics. Artists have appropriated cooking as an aesthetic practice – in turn, cooks are adapting the staging practices that go with an artistic selfimage. This development is accompanied by a philosophy of cooking as a speculative cultural technique. This volume investigates the dimensions of a new "culinary turn," combining for the very first time contributions from the theory and practice of cooking. $40.00 paper 978-3-8376-3031-2 2017 350 pages TRANSCRIPT-VERLAG

The Habermas Handbook

Critical Theory in Critical Times Transforming the Global Political and Economic Order

Edited by Hauke Brunkhorst, Regina Kreide, and Cristina Lafont

"A global, comprehensive one-stop volume—truly a handbook—for anyone working seriously with Habermas."—Max Pensky, Binghamton University

Edited by Penelope Deutscher and Cristina Lafont

"This volume is, and will likely remain for the indefinite future, the most definitive and exhaustive scholarly compendium on Habermas's life work. An astoundingly comprehensive study of virtually every detail of Habermas's thought spanning disciplines."

“This excellent collection of essays shows that we have to rethink the core concepts and scope of critical theory in light of contemporary challenges to democracy, human rights, and socioeconomic justice posed by neoliberal forms of globalization and by critical theory's own insufficient attention to colonialism and postcolonialism.... A must-read for anyone interested in progressive social change."

Providing new insights into the limitations of traditional strategies to confront poverty, contributors highlight how social organizations are working to transform the livelihoods of people through bottom-up struggle and more participatory approaches rather than passively waiting for top-down solutions. $45.00 paper 978-3-8382-1044-5 2017 340 pages IBIDEM PRESS

"Adrian Parr...does not simply argue that capitalism, neoliberalism, and militarism are incompatible with environmental concerns but also provides concrete examples of how to overcome this incompatibility, which is the cause of our greatest natural, political, and social emergencies. Parr calls upon activists and intellectuals to forcefully resist false policies that claim to foster global sustainability in favor of radical interventions that, one local step at a time, will truly save the world." —Santiago Zabala, author of Why Only Art Can Save Us $28.00 / £22.95 paper 978-0-231-18009-2 $85.00 / £70.95 cloth 978-0-231-18008-5 2017 328 pages

Everyday Economics

Planning for Crisis Strategy and Management Theory and the Impact of Economic Uncertainty

A User's Guide to the Modern Economy Steve Coulter

Carol M. Connell

By placing the individual front and center in his analysis, Steve Coulter is able to demonstrate how the things we experience, need, and consume fit into the fast-changing and interdependent global economic setting. Coulter shows the role of government, markets, and welfare in shaping our lives, and builds on the latest economic research and data to provide an overview of the workings of the economy that takes as its starting point the interface between the individual and the system overall.

Carol M. Connell investigates how theorists have used the economic recessions that defined their time to inform strategies for institutional management and growth in times of crisis. She shows that the postwar period saw an ever-growing body of research and theory from economics, the behavioral and social sciences, finance and business management, devoted to avoiding or limiting the effects, at the organizational level, of such economic downturns.

Life and Money

The Market

The Genealogy of the Liberal Economy and the Displacement of Politics

Matthew Watson

Ute Tellmann

"A fascinating and intricately argued study that redescribes significant moments in the development of economics not just as 'discoveries' but as moments in which the very nature of the economic and the political is reconstituted." —Stephen J. Collier, The New School

Complementing Michel Foucault’s influential account of liberal governmentality, Life and Money opens up liberalism, including our neoliberal present, to a new sense of economic and political possibility.


We’ve become accustomed to economists and politicians talking about “market forces” as if they are immutable laws of the universe. But what exactly is “the market”? Matt Watson unpacks the concept to ask what does it really mean to allow ourselves to submit to market forces. And does economic theory really provide insights into the market institutions that shape our everyday life? In tackling these questions, the book challenges the idea that we can simply defer to the “logic of the market.”

Reflections on the Future of the Left

Left-Wing Melancholia

Edited by David Coates

Marxism, History, and Memory Enzo Traverso

These essays from leading left intellectuals—Dean Baker, Fred Block, David Coates, Hillary Wainwright, Colin Crouch, Wolfgang Streeck, and Leo Panitch—reflect on the scale and nature of the task that the Left now faces. Akin to The Forward March of Labour Halted published some thirty years ago, these essays represent a major statement on the future for center-left politics and a frank appraisal of the Left's current capabilities to keep conservatism at bay and radical politics in the ascendancy. $25.00 paper 978-1-911116-52-3 2017 224 pages

"A pathbreaking work that combines history and political theory with a concise, richly analytical, exciting narrative. Enzo Traverso redefines our understanding of the current regimes of temporality—a sorrowful transition from the twentieth to the twenty-first century—and challenges historians and critical theorists alike to think beyond the standard binaries between history and memory, revolution and defeat, and melancholy and politics. In other words, this book is a gem."—Federico Finchelstein, The New School for Social Research $35.00 / £27.95 cloth  978-0-231179423 2017 312 pages

Conservatism, the Right Wing, and the Far Right

The Hungarian Far Right Social Demand, Political Supply, and International Context

A Guide to Archives Archie Henderson

Péter Krekó and Attila Juhász This volume contains a detailed overview of primary sources housed in more than 2,400 archives across twenty countries. It includes personal and institutional papers; archives of right-wing periodicals in Japanese, Romanian, and Russian; pamphlets, ephemera, vertical files, and press cuttings; oral histories; libraryaccessible commercial databases; digitized collections and exhibitions; archived websites; and microfilm and microfiche of right-wing materials. $136.00 cloth 978-3-8382-0725-4 2017 800 pages

In this book, the authors analyze the story of Jobbik (and Fidesz), contemporary players of the Hungarian radical right scene, not as separate case studies, but as representatives of broader international political trends. They argue that far-right parties such as Jobbik (and increasingly Fidesz) are not pathologic and extraordinary, but exaggerated, seemingly pathological manifestations of normal, mainstream politics. $40.00 paper 978-3-8382-1184-8 2017 260 pages IBIDEM PRESS

Political Uses of Utopia

New Marxist, Anarchist, and Radical Democratic Perspectives

César Rendueles Foreword by Roberto Simanowski. Translated by Heather Cleary.

“Rendueles's book transcends the national context in which it was written, and... goes to the heart of the contemporary problem of political organization, as it concerns radical protest and resistance movements. The refreshing aspect of Sociophobia is its sober approach to the role of new media in fomenting alternative political structures."—Michael Marder, University of the Basque Country and University of Diego Portales $25.00 / £19.95 paper 978-0-231-17527-2 $75.00 / £62.95 cloth 978-0-231-17526-5 2017 200 pages

A needed contribution, it will prove indispensable for all those who are trying to ground the desire for another world in political theory."—Peter Fitting, University of Toronto $35.00/ £27.95 paper 978-0-231-17959-1 $105.00 / £87.95 cloth 978-0-231-17958-4 2017 376 pages

The Social Work of Narrative

What Implicit Bias Gets Wrong About the Struggle for Racial Justice

Human Rights and the Cultural Imaginary

Jonathan Kahn

"This book sounds the loudest warning yet that the current seduction to considering racism as implicit bias can dangerously undermine longfought attempts to better understand the structural sources of racial inequality. Little irony is lost in suggesting that twenty-first century neuroscience has enabled a reincarnation of the early twentieth-century conception of race in America, a view that an analysis of discrimination can be reduced to individuals’ personal bias."—Troy Duster, University of California, Berkeley $35.00 / £27.95 cloth 978-0-231-18424-3 2017 304 pages

Edited by Gareth Griffiths and Philip Mead

"This finger-on-the-pulse collection dramatically expands debates on human rights, law, and literature. Recognizing the paradox of human rights as universal but exclusionary, these elegant essays cover an impressive range of media genres, showing how narrative form shapes claims-for-rights, not the other way around. Addressing pressing issues like new technologies of war, indigenous struggles, the refugee crisis, and much more, this interdisciplinary volume needs to be on the bookshelf of anyone interested in human rights." —Isabel Hofmeyr, NYU $50.00 paper 978-3-8382-0958-6 March 2018 414 pages IBIDEM PRESS

The Intimate Universal

Complicity New Perspectives on Collectivity

The Hidden Porosity Among Religion, Art, Philosophy, and Politics

Gesa Ziemer

William Desmond

"How can something singular, in all the depths of its singularity, communicate with the universal, with the result that the singular is not contracted to itself and the universal is not a free floating abstraction? William Desmond explores this basic question in all its dimensions in the steady, systematic and meticulous manner we have come to expect from him in this not to be missed new volume." —John D. Caputo, Syracuse University and Villanova University

Occupy, Commons and other social experiments demonstrate that new collectivities are invented and tested. Gesa Ziemer argues that in this process, the reinterpretation of old forms of joint action can play an essential role. By looking at complicities in art, science, and economy, ongoing collectivization is examined. $90.00 cloth 978-3-8376-3517-1 2017 184 pages TRANSCRIPT-VERLAG

Ernst Tugendhat

Timothy Morton

Translated by Alexei Procyshyn and Mario Wenning

"Ernst Tugendhat demonstrates how a sense of mysticism, that is, the capacity for 'stepping back,' is not only necessary for a more humane anthropology but also for philosophy's own theoretical practice." —Santiago Zabala, author of The Remains of Being: Hermeneutic Ontology After Metaphysics

In Egocentricity and Mysticism, Ernst Tugendhat casts mysticism as an innate facet of what it means to be human—a response to an existential need for peace of mind. $50.00 / £41.95 cloth 978-0-231-16912-7 2016 200 pages

“Morton commands readers' attention with his free-form style.... [Dark Ecology] extends his previous work to offer a seismically different vision of the future of ecology and humankind."—Publishers Weekly "[Morton] calls for scholars to recognize the structures of entwinement between (the human) species and ecological phenomena and to develop modes of thought for accommodating them.”—Kate Marshall, University of Notre Dame $30.00 / £24.95 cloth 978-0-231-17752-8 2016 208 pages

Julia Kristeva and Philippe Sollers

Michael Jackson

Translated by Lorna Scott Fox

“Kristeva’s and Sollers’s shared love of literature and interpretation, their appreciation of each other’s work is evident throughout this volume. These play a very real part in their fine art of marriage. As they explore its lineaments, they also share their deep knowledge of psychoanalysis and literature with us.” —Lisa Appignanesi, author of All About Love and Trials of Passion $26.00/ £20.95  cloth  978-0-231-18010-8 2016 128 pages  

"[The Work of Art] offers intriguing insights into how we might understand art and religion as two modes of the same creative impulse." —Publishers Weekly

Combining phenomenological and existential insights with honest and intimate ethnographic reflection, Jackson teases out the productive and transformative implications of art practice."—Adrian Parr, author of The Wrath of Capital $40.00 / £32.95  cloth 978-0-231-17818-1 2016 256 pages

An Archaeology of the Political Regimes of Power from the Seventeenth Century to the Present

Global and Aesthetic Perspectives on the History of a Concept

Elías José Palti

Edited by Zvi Ben-Dor Benite, Stefanos Geroulanos, and Nicole Jerr

"In this bold and ambitious survey of Western political theory and practice since the 17th century, which draws its lessons from European and Latin American history, as well as baroque and modern art, Elias Palti provides a ruthlessly incisive analysis of the sources of our unfolding crisis. An Archaeology of the Political exemplifies the power of conceptual history at its best not only to illuminate the past, but also perhaps light the way a better future."—Martin E. Jay, University of California, Berkeley


The Scaffolding of Sovereignty

"This volume showcases the best of global intellectual history. Sovereignty emerges as a complex force: aesthetically layered, politically mutable, historically contingent, and consistently elusive. At the same time, despite the apparent Eurocentrism of the concept's recent lineage, readers will come away convinced of the importance of sovereignty as an analytical category, key to making sense of political culture in world history and political thought in global context." —Lauren Benton, author of A Search for Sovereignty

As Wide as the World Is Wise

The Pursuit of Pleasure Overcoming a Civilizational Challenge

Reinventing Philosophical Anthropology

Arsen Dallan and Karlen Dallakyan

"From early warnings by leading philosophers of their day to modern neuroscience insights, the authors present evidence showing the prevalence of pleasure seeking and the resulting degradation of the world we live in." —Peter Steidl, author of Neurobranding

This compelling volume analyzes how the pleasure principle has taken humanity hostage to the powers of branding and consumerism, steering our most basic desires. The authors radically reevaluate the notion of pleasure arguing for societal change to a more humanist culture.

Michael Jackson

"Jackson shows us how in our time much philosophical practice is an attempt to think through the immediate and pressing issues of everyday existence. Anthropology, Jackson argues, is perfectly positioned to contribute significantly to such thinking. The result is an important and innovative articulation of a potential philosophical anthropology." —Jarrett Zigon, author of Morality: An Anthropological Perspective $35.00 / £27.95  cloth 978-0-231-17828-0 2016 272 pages

Sociality and Justice Toward Social Phenomenology

The Two Wests in the Age of Austerity

Maria Dimitrova

Edited by Alice KesslerHarris and Maurizio Vaudagna

Building on the work of Emmanuel Levinas, Maria Dimitrova puts the phenomenological paradigm into a new perspective. Overcoming the focus on self-reflection of the thinking subject and instead arguing for the importance of sociality as responsibility for the Other, this new approach is based on inter-subjectivity and introduces a social dimension in phenomenology. $38.00 paper 978-3-8382-0965-4 2016 250 pages IBIDEM PRESS

Democracy and the Welfare State

“Has neoliberalism effectively ended the (always uneasy) marriage of capitalism and democracy? Taking the measure of welfarestate decline across the 'Two Wests,' the contributors to this authoritative volume offer subtle and probing reckonings of the fate of democracy in an age of exclusion. The result is a complex and disturbing portrait of our times."—Nancy Fraser, New School for Social Research $35.00 / £27.95 paper 978-0-231-18035-1 $105.00 / £87.95 cloth 978-0-231-18034-4 2017 424 pages

"Shapiro does more than hammer some more nails in the coffin of miracles that David Hume fashioned. He marshals much of what we have learned about inference to the best explanation and Bayes's theorem in the 270 years since Hume's inquiry. Yet he does it with Hume's lightness of touch, a wealth of relevant examples of contemporary credulousness, and no equations."—Alex Rosenberg,
