(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...

(P/B) THE BOOK
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0371

The book as object, as content, as idea, as interface. What is the book in a digital age? Is it a physical object containing pages encased in covers? Is it a portable device that gives us access to entire libraries? The codex, the book as bound paper sheets, emerged around 150 CE. It was preceded by clay tablets and papyrus scrolls. Are those books? In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Amaranth Borsuk considers the history of the book, the future of the book, and the idea of the book. Tracing the interrelationship o...

(P/B) MEMES IN DIGITAL CULTURE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0390

Taking "Gangnam Style" seriously: what Internet memes can tell us about digital culture. In December 2012, the exuberant video "Gangnam Style" became the first YouTube clip to be viewed more than one billion times. Thousands of its viewers responded by creating and posting their own variations of the video - "Mitt Romney Style," "NASA Johnson Style," "Egyptian Style," and many others. "Gangnam Style" (and its attendant parodies, imitations, and derivations) is one of the most famous examples of an Internet meme: a piece of digital content...

(P/B) FOOD
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0428

A consumer's guide to the food system, from local to global: our part as citizens in the interconnected networks, institutions, and organizations that enable our food choices. Everybody eats. We may even consider ourselves experts on the topic, or at least Instagram experts. But are we aware that the shrimp in our freezer may be farmed and frozen in Vietnam, the grapes in our fruit bowl shipped from Chile, and the coffee in our coffee maker grown in Nicaragua, roasted in Germany, and distributed in Canada? Whether we know it or not, every...

(H/B) PLASTIC CAPITALISM
CONTEMPORARY ART AND THE DRIVE TO WASTE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0437

An argument for the centrality of the visual culture of waste - as seen in works by international contemporary artists - to the study of our ecological condition. Ecological crisis has driven contemporary artists to engage with waste in its most non-biodegradable forms: plastics, e-waste, toxic waste, garbage hermetically sealed in landfills. In this provocative and original book, Amanda Boetzkes links the increasing visualization of waste in contemporary art to the rise of the global oil economy and the emergence of ecological thinking. ...

(H/B) RULES OF PLAY
GAME DESIGN FUNDAMENTALS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0272

As pop culture, games are as important as film or television-but game design has yet to develop a theoretical framework or critical vocabulary. In Rules of Play Katie Salen and Eric Zimmerman present a much-needed primer for this emerging field. They offer a unified model for looking at all kinds of games, from board games and sports to computer and video games. As active participants in game culture, the authors have written Rules of Play as a catalyst for innovation, filled with new concepts, strategies, and methodologies for creating an...

(P/B) ARCHITECTURE AND DISJUNCTION
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0311

Avant-garde theorist and architect Bernard Tschumi is equally well known for his writing and his practice. Architecture and Disjunction, which brings together Tschumi's essays from 1975 to 1990, is a lucid and provocative analysis of many of the key issues that have engaged architectural discourse over the past two decades - from deconstructive theory to recent concerns with the notions of event and program. The essays develop different themes in contemporary theory as they relate to the actual making of architecture, attempting to realign...

THE EXILES OF MARCEL DUCHAMP
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0161

Marcel Duchamp was a famous expatriate, a wanderer, living and working in Paris, New York, and Buenos Aires and escaping from them in turn. But exile, argues T. J. Demos in this innovative reading, is more than a fact in Duchamp's biography. Exile -in the artist's own words, a "spirit of expatriation"- infuses Duchamp's entire artistic practice. Indeed a profound sense of dislocation - from geographical situation, national identity, and cultural conventions - deeply informs the mobile objects and disjunctive spaces of Duchamp's ready-mades...

(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...

(P/B) LAW AS REFUGE OF ANARCHY
SOCIETIES WITHOUT HEGEMONY OR STATE
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0399

A study of communities in the Horn of Africa where reciprocity is a dominant social principle, offering a concrete countermodel to the hierarchical state. Over the course of history, people have developed many varieties of communal life; the state, with its hierarchical structure, is only one of the possibilities for society. In this book, leading anthropologist Hermann Amborn identifies a countermodel to the state, describing communities where reciprocity is a dominant social principle and where egalitarianism is a matter of course. He p...

(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 ...

(H/B) PUBLISHING MANIFESTOS
AN INTERNATIONAL ANTHOLOGY FROM ARTISTS AND WRITERS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0429

Manifestos by artists, authors, editors, publishers, designers, zinesters explore publishing as artistic practice. Independent publishing, art publishing, publishing as artistic practice, publishing counterculture, and the zine, DIY, and POD scenes have proliferated over the last two decades. So too have art book fairs, an increasingly important venue-or even medium-for art. Art publishing experienced a similar boom in the 1960s and 1970s, in response to the culture's "linguistic turn." Today, art publishing confronts the internet and the...

(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...

(H/B) HAUNTED BAUHAUS
OCCULT SPIRITUALITY, GENDER FLUIDITY, QUEER IDENTITIES, AND RADICAL POLITICS
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0443

An investigation of the irrational and the unconventional currents swirling behind the Bauhaus's signature sleek surfaces and austere structures. The Bauhaus (1919-1933) is widely regarded as the twentieth century's most influential art, architecture, and design school, celebrated as the archetypal movement of rational modernism and famous for bringing functional and elegant design to the masses. In Haunted Bauhaus, art historian Elizabeth Otto liberates Bauhaus history, uncovering a movement that is vastly more diverse and paradoxical th...

(P/B) MACHINE LEARNING
THE NEW AI
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0357

A concise overview of machine learning - computer programs that learn from data - which underlies applications that include recommendation systems, face recognition, and driverless cars. Today, machine learning underlies a range of applications we use every day, from product recommendations to voice recognition - as well as some we don't yet use everyday, including driverless cars. It is the basis of the new approach in computing where we do not write programs but collect data; the idea is to learn the algorithms for the tasks automatical...

(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) SEXUAL CONSENT
Εκδότης: MIT PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2615-0430

An introduction to issues of sexual consent, covering key strands of feminist thought, how sexual consent is negotiated in practice, the influence of popular culture, and more. The #MeToo movement has focused public attention on the issue of sexual consent. People of all genders, from all walks of life, have stepped forward to tell their stories of sexual harassment and violation. In a predictable backlash, others have taken to mass media to inquire plaintively if "flirting" is now forbidden. This volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowled...
