(P/B) ENLIVENMENT
TOWARD A POETICS FOR THE ANTHROPOCENE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0436

A new understanding of the Anthropocene that is based on mutual transformation with nature rather than control over nature. We have been told that we are living in the Anthropocene, a geological era shaped by humans rather than by nature. In Enlivenment, German philosopher Andreas Weber presents an alternative understanding of our relationship with nature, arguing not that humans control nature but that humans and nature exist in a commons of mutual transformation. There is no nature-human dualism, he contends, because the fundamental dim...

(P/B) THE TECHNOLOGICAL SINGULARITY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0433

The idea of technological singularity, and what it would mean if ordinary human intelligence were enhanced or overtaken by artificial intelligence. The idea that human history is approaching a "singularity"-that ordinary humans will someday be overtaken by artificially intelligent machines or cognitively enhanced biological intelligence, or both-has moved from the realm of science fiction to serious debate. Some singularity theorists predict that if the field of artificial intelligence (AI) continues to develop at its current dizzying rat...

(H/B) THE ADVENTURE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0356

Agamben charts a journey that ranges from poems of chivalry to philosophy, from Yvain to Hegel, from Beatrice to Heidegger. An ancient legend identifies Demon, Chance, Love, and Necessity as the four gods who preside over the birth of every human being. We must all pay tribute to these deities and should not try to elude or dupe them. To accept them, Giorgio Agamben suggests, is to live one's life as an adventure - not in the trivial sense of the term, with lightness and disenchantment, but with the understanding that adventure, as a spec...

(P/B) NIHILISM
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0412

An examination of the meaning of meaninglessness: why it matters that nothing matters. When someone is labeled a nihilist, it's not usually meant as a compliment. Most of us associate nihilism with destructiveness and violence. Nihilism means, literally, "an ideology of nothing. " Is nihilism, then, believing in nothing? Or is it the belief that life is nothing? Or the belief that the beliefs we have amount to nothing? If we can learn to recognize the many varieties of nihilism, Nolen Gertz writes, then we can learn to distinguish what is...

(P/B) GOOD ENTERTAINMENT
A DECONSTRUCTION OF THE WESTERN PASSION NARRATIVE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0416

A philosopher considers entertainment, in all its totalizing variety-infotainment, edutainment, servotainment-and traces the notion through Kant, Zen Buddhism, Heidegger, Kafka, and Rauschenberg. In Good Entertainment, Byung-Chul Han examines the notion of entertainment-its contemporary ubiquity, and its philosophical genealogy. Entertainment today, in all its totalizing variety, has an apparently infinite capacity for incorporation: infotainment, edutainment, servotainment, confrontainment. Entertainment is held up as a new paradigm, eve...

(P/B) THE PARALLAX VIEW
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0182

The Parallax View is Slavoj Zizek's most substantial theoretical work to appear in many years; Zizek himself describes it as his magnum opus. Parallax can be defined as the apparent displacement of an object, caused by a change in observational position. Zizek is interested in the "parallax gap" separating two points between which no synthesis or mediation is possible, linked by an "impossible short circuit" of levels that can never meet. From this consideration of parallax, Zizek begins a rehabilitation of dialectical materialism. Modes ...

(P/B) THE IMAGE OF THE CITY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0044

What does the city's form actually mean to the people who live there? What can the city planner do to make the city's image more vivid and memorable to the city dweller? To answer these questions, Mr. Lynch, supported by studies of Los Angeles, Boston, and Jersey City, formulates a new criterion - imageability - and shows its potential value as a guide for the building and rebuilding of cities. The wide scope of this study leads to an original and vital method for the evaluation of city form. The architect, the planner, and certainly the c...

(P/B) MATADATA
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0386

Everything we need to know about metadata, the usually invisible infrastructure for information with which we interact every day. When "metadata" became breaking news, appearing in stories about surveillance by the National Security Agency, many members of the public encountered this once-obscure term from information science for the first time. Should people be reassured that the NSA was "only" collecting metadata about phone calls - information about the caller, the recipient, the time, the duration, the location - and not recordings of...

(P/B) LEARNING FROM LAS VEGAS
THE FORGOTTEN SYMBOLISM OF ARCHITECTURAL FORM
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0290

This new edition of "Learning from Las Vegas" arose from the displeasure expressed by students and others at the price of the original version. Knowing that a second printing of the original version would be almost twice the original price, we have chosen instead to abridge the book to bring its ideas within the reach of those who would like to read it. At the same time, we have taken the opportunity to focus our argument more clearly and to add a little, so the new edition, although abridged, stands on its own and goes beyond its progenit...

(P/B) JOURNEY TO THE EAST
EDITED, ANNOTATED, TRANSLATED AND WITH A NEW PREFACE BY IVAN ZAKNIC
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0160

This is the legendary travel diary that the twenty-four-year-old Charles-Edouard Jeanneret (Le Corbusier) kept during his formative journey through Southern, Central, and Eastern Europe in 1911. In a flood of highly personal impressions and visual notations, it records his first contact with the vernacular architecture that would preoccupy him for the rest of his life and his first sight of the monuments he most admired: the mosque complexes, the Acropolis, and the Parthenon. Le Corbusier himself suppressed publication of this book during ...

(P/B) IN THE SWARM
DIGITAL PROSPECTS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0343

"The shitstorm represents an authentic phenomenon of digital communication." Digital communication and social media have taken over our lives. In this contrarian reflection on digitized life, Byung-Chul Han counters the cheerleaders for Twitter revolutions and Facebook activism by arguing that digital communication is in fact responsible for the disintegration of community and public space and is slowly eroding any possibility for real political action and meaningful political discourse. In the predigital, analog era, by the time an angry ...

(P/B) TOPOLOGY OF VIOLENCE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0363

One of today's most widely read philosophers considers the shift in violence from visible to invisible, from negativity to excess of positivity. Some things never disappear - violence, for example. Violence is ubiquitous and incessant but protean, varying its outward form according to the social constellation at hand. In Topology of Violence, the philosopher Byung-Chul Han considers the shift in violence from the visible to the invisible, from the frontal to the viral to the self-inflicted, from brute force to mediated force, from the rea...

(H/B) THE DEEP LEARNING REVOLUTION
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0378

How deep learning - from Google Translate to driverless cars to personal cognitive assistants - is changing our lives and transforming every sector of the economy. The deep learning revolution has brought us driverless cars, the greatly improved Google Translate, fluent conversations with Siri and Alexa, and enormous profits from automated trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Deep learning networks can play poker better than professional poker players and defeat a world champion at Go. In this book, Terry Sejnowski explains how deep le...

(H/B) DEEP LEARNING
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0445

Deep learning is a form of machine learning that enables computers to learn from experience and understand the world in terms of a hierarchy of concepts. Because the computer gathers knowledge from experience, there is no need for a human computer operator to formally specify all the knowledge that the computer needs. The hierarchy of concepts allows the computer to learn complicated concepts by building them out of simpler ones; a graph of these hierarchies would be many layers deep. This book introduces a broad range of topics in deep le...

(P/B) 3D PRINTING
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0420

An accessible introduction to 3D printing that outlines the additive manufacturing process, industrial and household markets, and emerging uses. The use of 3D printing-digitally controlled additive manufacturing-is growing rapidly. Consumer models of 3D printers allow people to fabricate small plastic objects, from cabinet knobs to wedding cake toppers. Industrial uses are becoming widespread, as businesses use the technology to fabricate prototypes, spare parts, custom-fitted prosthetics, and other plastic or metal items, often at lower ...

(P/B) SUSTAINABILITY
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0431

A concise and accessible examination of sustainability in a range of contemporary contexts, from economic development to government policy. The word "sustainability" has been connected to everything from a certain kind of economic development to corporate promises about improved supply sourcing. But despite the apparent ubiquity of the term, the concept of sustainability has come to mean a number of specific things. In this accessible guide to the meanings of sustainability, Kent Portney describes the evolution of the idea and examines it...

(P/B) CARBON CAPTURE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0417

A concise overview of carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS), a promising but overlooked climate change mitigation pathway. The burning of fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide (CO2), and these CO2 emissions are a major driver of climate change. Carbon capture offers a path to climate change mitigation that has received relatively little attention. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Howard Herzog offers a concise guide to carbon capture, covering basic information as well as the larger context of climate technolo...

(P/B) THE CONSPIRACY OF ART
MANIFESTOS, TEXTS, INTERVIEWS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0061

The images from Abu Ghraib are as murderous for America as those of the World Trade Center in flames. The whole West is contained in the burst of sadistic laughter of the American soldiers, as it is behind the construction of the Israeli wall. This is where the truth of these images lies. Truth, but not veracity. As virtual as the war itself, their specific violence adds to the specific violence of the war. In The Conspiracy of Art, Baudrillard questions the privilege attached to art by its practitioners. Art has lost all desire for illusi...

(P/B) THE AGONY OF EROS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0342

Byung-Chul Han is one of the most widely read philosophers in Europe today, a member of the new generation of German thinkers that includes Markus Gabriel and Armen Avanessian. In The Agony of Eros, a bestseller in Germany, Han considers the threat to love and desire in today's society. For Han, love requires the courage to accept self-negation for the sake of discovering the Other. In a world of fetishized individualism and technologically mediated social interaction, it is the Other that is eradicated, not the self. In today's increasing...
