(P/B) COUNTERSEXUAL MANIFESTO
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0224

Countersexual Manifesto is an outrageous yet rigorous work of trans theory, a performative literary text, and an insistent call to action. Seeking to overthrow all constraints on what can be done with and to the body, Paul B. Preciado offers a provocative challenge to even the most radical claims about gender, sexuality, and desire. Preciado lays out mock constitutional principles for a countersexual revolution that will recognize genitalia as technological objects and offers step-by-step illustrated instructions for dismantling the hetero...

(H/B) WHAT IS A PEOPLE?
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0175

"What Is a People?" seeks to reclaim "people" as an effective political concept by revisiting its uses and abuses over time. Alain Badiou surveys the idea of a people as a productive force of solidarity and emancipation and as a negative tool of categorization and suppression. Pierre Bourdieu follows with a sociolinguistic analysis of "popular" and its transformation of democracy, beliefs, songs, and even soups into phenomena with outsized importance. Judith Butler calls out those who use freedom of assembly to create an exclusionary "we,"...

(H/B) SECULARISM AND COSMOPOLITANISM
CRITICAL HYPOTHESES ON RELIGION AND POLITICS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0198

What is the relationship between cosmopolitanism and secularism - the worldwide and the worldly? While cosmopolitan politics may seem inherently secular, existing forms of secularism risk undermining the universality of cosmopolitanism because they privilege the European tradition over all others and transform particular historical norms into enunciations of truth, valid for all cultures and all epochs. In this book, the noted philosopher Etienne Balibar explores the tensions lurking at this troubled nexus in order to advance a truly democ...

(P/B) POWERS OF HORROR
AN ESSAY ON ABJECTION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0026

"Kristeva is one of the leading voices in contemporary French criticism, on a par with such names as Genette, Foucault, Greimas and others... [Powers of Horror is] an excellent introduction to an aspect of contemporary French literature which has been allowed to become somewhat neglected in the current emphasis on para-philosophical modes of discourse. The sections on Celine, for example, are indispensable reading for those interested in this writer and place him within a context that is both illuminating and of general interest." (Paul de...

(P/B) AVICENNA AND THE ARISTOTELIAN LEFT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0210

Ernst Bloch was one of the most significant twentieth-century German thinkers, yet he remains overshadowed by his Frankfurt School contemporaries. Known for his engagement with utopianism and religious thought, Bloch also wrote incisively about ontological questions. In his short masterpiece Avicenna and the Aristotelian Left, Bloch gives a striking account of materialism that traces emancipatory elements of modern thought to medieval Islamic philosophers' encounter with Aristotle. Bloch argues that the great medieval Islamic philosopher A...

(H/B) SOCIAL EMPATHY
THE ART OF UNDERSTANDING OTHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0218

Our ability to understand others and help others understand us is essential to our individual and collective well-being. Yet there are many barriers that keep us from walking in the shoes of others: fear, skepticism, and power structures that separate us from those outside our narrow groups. To progress in a multicultural world and ensure our common good, we need to overcome these obstacles. Our best hope can be found in the skill of empathy. In Social Empathy, Elizabeth A. Segal explains how we can develop our ability to understand one an...

(P/B) WHAT KIND OF CREATURES ARE WE ?
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0212

Noam Chomsky is widely known and deeply admired for being the founder of modern linguistics, one of the founders of the field of cognitive science, and perhaps the most avidly read political theorist and commentator of our time. In these lectures, he presents a lifetime of philosophical reflection on all three of these areas of research, to which he has contributed for over half a century. In clear, precise, and nontechnical language, Chomsky elaborates on fifty years of scientific development in the study of language, sketching how his ow...

(H/B) LEFT-WING MELANCHOLIA
MARXISM, HISTORY, AND MEMORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0217

The fall of the Berlin Wall marked the end of the Cold War but also the rise of a melancholic vision of history as a series of losses. For the political left, the cause lost was communism, and this trauma determined how leftists wrote the next chapter in their political struggle and how they have thought about their past since. Throughout the twentieth century, argues Left-Wing Melancholia, from classical Marxism to psychoanalysis to the advent of critical theory, a culture of defeat and its emotional overlay of melancholy have characteriz...

(H/B) JACQUES SCHIFFRIN
A PUBLISHER IN EXILE, FROM PLEIADE TO PANTHEON
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0221

Jacques Schiffrin changed the face of publishing in the twentieth century. As the founder of Les ?ditions de la Pl?iade in Paris and cofounder of Pantheon Books in New York, he helped define a lasting canon of Western literature while also promoting new authors who shaped transatlantic intellectual life. In this first biography of Schiffrin, Amos Reichman tells the poignant story of a remarkable publisher and his dramatic travails across two continents. Just as he influenced the literary trajectory of the twentieth century, Schiffrin's lif...

(P/B) FOUCAULT AT THE MOVIES
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0197

Michel Foucault's work on film, although not extensive, compellingly illustrates the power of bringing his unique vision to bear on the subject and offers valuable insights into other aspects of his thought. Foucault at the Movies brings together all of Foucault's commentary on film, some of it available for the first time in English, along with important contemporary analysis and further extensions of this work. Patrice Maniglier and Dork Zabunyan situate Foucault's writings on film in the context of the rest of his work as well as within...

(P/B) POLITICAL FREUD
A HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0205

In this masterful history, Eli Zaretsky reveals the power of Freudian thought to illuminate the great political conflicts of the twentieth century. Developing an original concept of "political Freudianism," he shows how twentieth-century radicals, activists, and intellectuals used psychoanalytic ideas to probe consumer capitalism, racial violence, anti-Semitism, and patriarchy. He also underscores the continuing influence and critical potential of those ideas in the transformed landscape of the present. Zaretsky's conception of political F...

(P/B) BLACK GODS OF THE ASPHALT
RELIGION, HIP-HOP, AND STREET BASKETBALL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0225

J-Rod moves like a small tank on the court, his face mean, staring down his opponents. "I play just like my father," he says. "Before my father died, he was a problem on the court. I'm a problem." Playing basketball for him fuses past and present, conjuring his father's memory into a force that opponents can feel in each bone-snapping drive to the basket. On the street, every ballplayer has a story. Onaje X. O. Woodbine, a former streetball player who became an all-star Ivy Leaguer, brings the sights and sounds, hopes and dreams of street ...

(P/B) UNHOUSED
ADORNO AND THE PROBLEM OF DWELLING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0196

Unhoused: Adorno and the Problem of Dwelling is the first book-length study of Theodor Adorno as a philosopher of housing. Treating his own experience of exile as emblematic of late modern life, Adorno observed that twentieth-century dwelling had been rendered "impossible" by nativism, by the decimations of war, and, in the postwar period, by housing's increasingly thorough assimilation into private property. Adorno's position on the meaning and prospects for adequate dwelling - a concept he never wrote about systematically but nevertheles...

(H/Β) INDENTIFYING WITH NATIONALITY
EUROPEANS, OTTOMANS, AND EGYPTIANS IN ALEXANDRIA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0220

Nationality is the most important legal mechanism sorting and classifying the world's population today. An individual's place of birth or naturalization determines where he or she can and cannot be and what he or she can and cannot do. Although this system may appear universal, even natural, Will Hanley shows that it arose just a century ago. In Identifying with Nationality, he uses the Mediterranean city of Alexandria to develop a genealogy of the nation and the formation of the modern national subject. Alexandria in 1880 was an immigrant...

(P/B) BLACK SUN
DEPRESSION AND MELANCHOLIA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0223

In Black Sun, Julia Kristeva addresses the subject of melancholia, examining this phenomenon in the context of art, literature, philosophy, the history of religion and culture, as well as psychoanalysis. She describes the depressive as one who perceives the sense of self as a crucial pursuit and a nearly unattainable goal and explains how the love of a lost identity of attachment lies at the very core of depression's dark heart. In her discussion she analyzes Holbein's controversial 1522 painting "The Body of the Dead Christ in the Tomb," ...

(P/B) REDUCTIONISM IN ART AND BRAIN SCIENCE
BRIDGING THE TWO CULTURES
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0201

Are art and science separated by an unbridgeable divide? Can they find common ground? In this new book, neuroscientist Eric R. Kandel, whose remarkable scientific career and deep interest in art give him a unique perspective, demonstrates how science can inform the way we experience a work of art and seek to understand its meaning. Kandel illustrates how reductionism - the distillation of larger scientific or aesthetic concepts into smaller, more tractable components - has been used by scientists and artists alike to pursue their respectiv...

(H/B) LACAN
ANTI-PHILOSOPHY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0222

Alain Badiou is arguably the most significant philosopher in Europe today. Badiou's seminars, given annually on major conceptual and historical topics, constitute an enormously important part of his work. They served as laboratories for his thought and public illuminations of his complex ideas yet remain little known. This book, the transcript of Badiou's year-long seminar on the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan, is the first volume of his seminars to be published in English, opening up a new and vital aspect of his thinking. In a hi...
