(P/B) PIERRE BOURDIEU
KEY CONCEPTS
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0045

The French social philosopher Pierre Bourdieu (1930 - 2002) is now recognised as one of the major thinkers of the twentieth century. In a career of over fifty years, Bourdieu studied a wide range of topics: education, culture, art, politics, economics, literature, law, and philosophy. Throughout these studies, Bourdieu developed a highly specialised series of concepts that he referred to as his thinking tools, which were used to uncover the workings of contemporary society. Pierre Bourdieu: Key Concepts takes a selection of his most import...

(P/B) THE PHILOSOPHY OF AGAMBEN
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0035

Giorgio Agamben has gained widespread popularity in recent years for his rethinking of radical politics and his approach to meta-physics and language. However, the extraordinary breadth of historical, legal and philosophical sources which contribute to the complexity and depth of Agamben's thinking can also make his work intimidating. Covering the full range of Agamben's work, this critical introduction outlines Agamben's key concerns: metaphysics, language and potentiality, aesthetics and poetics, sovereignty, law and biopolitics, ethics ...

(P/B) W. V. QUINE
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0050

The most influential philosopher in the analytic tradition of his time, Willard Van Orman Quine (1908 - 2000) changed the way we think about language and its relation to the world. His rejection of the analytic/synthetic distinction, his scepticism about modal logic and essentialism, his celebrated theme of the indeterminacy of translation, and his advocacy of naturalism have challenged key assumptions of the prevailing orthodoxy and helped shape the development of much of recent philosophy. This introduction to Quine's philosophical ideas...

(P/B) SIGHT AND THE ANCIENT SENSES
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0075

What did Greeks and Romans "see" when they saw? How did Graeco-Roman theories of seeing shape classical art, literature and philosophy? And how does such thinking relate to the "senses in antiquity" as well as to more modern western theoretical frameworks? Sight and the Ancient Senses examines the sense that Greek and Roman antiquity theorized above all others. Approaching vision from a range of different thematic angles, the book provides the first thorough introduction to concepts of "seeing" in ancient philosophy, science, literature, r...

(P/B) THE ZIZEK DICTIONARY
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0073

Slavoj Zizek is the most popular and discussed philosopher in the world today. His prolific writings - across philosophy, psychoanalysis, political and social theory, film, music and religion - always engage and provoke. The power of his ideas, the breadth of his references, his capacity for playfulness and confrontation, his willingness to change his mind and his refusal fundamentally to alter his argument - all have worked to build an extraordinary international readership as well as to elicit much critical reaction. The Zizek Dictionary...

(P/B) ALAIN BADIOU
KEY CONCEPTS
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0040

Alain Badiou is one of the world's most influential living philosophers. Few contemporary thinkers display his breadth of argument and reference, or his ability to intervene in debates critical to both analytic and continental philosophy. Alain Badiou: Key Concepts presents an overview of and introduction to the full range of Badiou's thinking. Essays focus on the foundations of Badiou's thought, his 'key concepts'; truth, being, ontology, the subject, and conditions; and on his engagement with a range of thinkers central to his philosophy...

(P/B) JURGEN HABERMAS
KEY CONCEPTS
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0039

A rare systematic thinker, Habermas has furthered our understanding of modernity, social interaction and linguistic practice, societal institutions, rationality, morality, the law, globalization, and the role of religion in multicultural societies. He has helped shape discussions of truth, objectivity, normativity, and the relationship between the human and the natural sciences. This volume provides an accessible and comprehensive conceptual map of Habermas' theoretical framework and its key concepts, including the theory of communicative ...

(P/B) INTRODUCING PHILOSOPHY OF MATHEMATICS
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0074

What is mathematics about? Does the subject-matter of mathematics exist independently of the mind or are they mental constructions? How do we know mathematics? Is mathematical knowledge logical knowledge? And how is mathematics applied to the material world? In this introduction to the philosophy of mathematics, Michele Friend examines these and other ontological and epistemological problems raised by the content and practice of mathematics. Aimed at a readership with limited proficiency in mathematics but with some experience of formal lo...

(P/B) RICHARD RORTY
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0061

Richard Rorty is notorious for contending that the traditional, foundation-building and truth-seeking ambitions of systematic philosophy should be set aside in favour of a more pragmatic, conversational, hermeneutically guided project. This challenge has not only struck at the heart of philosophy but has ricocheted across other disciplines, both contesting their received self-images and opening up new avenues of inquiry in the process. Alan Malachowski provides an authoritative overview of Rorty's considerable body of work and a general a...

(P/B) CAUSATION AND EXPLANATION
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0022

What is the nature of causation? How is causation linked with explanation? Can there be an adequate theory of explanation? These questions and many others are addressed in this unified and rigorous examination of the philosophical problems surrounding causation, laws and explanation. Part 1 of the book explores Hume's views on causation, theories of singular causation, and counterfactual and mechanistic approaches. Part 2 considers the regularity view of laws and laws as relations among universals, as well as recent alternative approaches ...

(P/B) THE MUSICAL STRUCTURE OF PLATO'S DIALOGUES
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0031

J. B. Kennedy presents a radical interpretation of the dialogues of Plato. In a detailed and systematic examination of the Symposium and Euthyphro, Kennedy reveals an underlying musical structure to Plato's dialogues, one that uses symbols to encode Pythagorean doctrines. The followers of Pythagoras famously thought that the cosmos had a hidden musical structure and that wise philosophers would be able to hear this "harmony of the spheres". Kennedy, an expert in Pythagorean mathematics and music theory, shows that Plato - thought by many o...

(P/B) THE PHILOSOPHY OF KIERKEGAARD
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0008

Although the ideas of Soren Kierkegaard played a pivotal role in the shaping of mainstream German philosophy and the history of French existentialism, the question of how philosophers should read Kierkegaard is a difficult one to settle. His intransigent religiosity has led some philosophers to view him as essentially a religious thinker of a singularly anti-philosophical attitude. In this major new survey of Kierkegaard's thought, George Pattison addresses this question head on to show that although it would be difficult to claim a "philo...

(P/B) ROBERT NOZICK
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0062

Although best known for the hugely influential Anarchy, State and Utopia, Robert Nozick (1938 - 2002) eschewed the label "political philosopher" because the vast majority of his writings and attention have focused on other areas. Indeed the breadth of Nozick's work is perhaps greater than that of any other contemporary philosopher. This book is the first to give full and proper discussion of Nozick's philosophy as a whole, including his influential work on the theory of knowledge, his notion of "tracking the truth", his metaphysical writin...

AN INTRODUCTION
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0065

Can we know whether something is right and wrong? Is morality a fiction? Metaethics: An Introduction presents a very clear and engaging survey of the key concepts and positions in what has become one of the most exciting and influential fields of philosophy. Free from technicality and jargon, the book covers the main ideas that have shaped metaethics from the work of G. E....

Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0036

The Philosophy of Heidegger is a readable and reliable overview of Heidegger's thought, suitable both for beginning and advanced students.

(P/B) FILM, THEORY AND PHILOSOPHY
THE KEY THINKERS
Εκδότης: ACUMEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0032-0023

Philosophy, and in particular continental philosophy, has provided a conceptual underpinning for cinema since its beginnings, especially in the development of cinematic aesthetics. In its turn, film has rethought the abstractions of space and time and the categories of sex and gender and has created new concepts which illuminate phenomenology, metaphysics and epistemology. Film, Theory and Philosophy brings together leading scholars to provide a detailed overview of the key thinkers who have shaped the field of film philosophy. The thinker...
