(P/B) DISPOSSESSION
THE PERFORMATIVE IN THE POLITICAL
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0446

Dispossession describes the condition of those who have lost land, citizenship, property, and a broader belonging to the world. This thought-provoking book seeks to elaborate our understanding of dispossession outside of the conventional logic of possession, a hallmark of capitalism, liberalism, and humanism. Can dispossession simultaneously characterize political responses and opposition to the disenfranchisement associated with unjust dispossession of land, economic and political power, and basic conditions for living? In the context of ...

THEN AND NOW
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0559

This third and final volume of the series of writings by Antonio Negri examines how Spinoza's thought constitutes a radical break with past ideas and an essential tool for envisaging a form of politics beyond capitalism. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE EDGES OF FICTION
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0541

What distinguishes fiction from ordinary experience is not a lack of reality but a surfeit of rationality - this was the thesis of Aristotle's Poetics. The rationality of fiction is that appearances are inverted. Fiction overturns the ordinary course of events that occur one after the other, aiming to show how the unexpected arises, happiness transforms into unhappiness and ignorance into knowledge. In the modern age, argues Ranci?re, this fictional rationality was developed in new ways. The social sciences extended the model of causal lin...

(P/B) THE LOGIC OF PRACTICE
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0206

Now available in paperback, this book offers a major statement of Bourdieu's theoretical approach, illustrating it with examples from anthropology. It will consolidate his reputation as one of the most original and exciting theorists in the social sciences today. Drawing on his own field work as well as a wide range of ethnographic and anthropological texts, Bourdieu unfolds a theoretical perspective which does justice to the practical logic of everyday action as well as the objective structures within which such action takes place. A tho...

(P/B) RADICAL EVIL
A PHILOSOPHICAL INTERROGATION
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0118

At present, there is an enormous gulf between the visibility of evil and the paucity of our intellectual resources for coming to grips with it. We have been flooded with images of death camps, terrorist attacks and horrendous human suffering. Yet when we ask what we mean by radical evil and how we are to account for it, we seem to be at a loss for proper responses. Bernstein seeks to discover what we can learn about the meaning of evil and human responsibility. He turns to philosophers such as Kant, who coined the expression 'radical evil'...

In recent years there has been a rapid growth of interest in the sociological study of childhood. This new book draws together the major developments in the field.

(P/B) THE POSTHUMAN
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0494

The Posthuman offers both an introduction and major contribution to contemporary debates on the posthuman. Digital 'second life', genetically modified food, advanced prosthetics, robotics and reproductive technologies are familiar facets of our globally linked and technologically mediated societies. This has blurred the traditional distinction between the human and its others, exposing the non-naturalistic structure of the human. The Posthuman starts by exploring the extent to which a post-humanist move displaces the traditional humanistic...

(P/B) PERSONS AND THINGS
FROM THE BODY'S POINT OF VIEW
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0499

What is the relationship between persons and things? And how does the body transform this relationship? In this highly original new book, Roberto Esposito - one of Italy's leading political philosophers - considers these questions and shows that starting from the body, rather than from the thing or the person, can help us to reconsider the status of both. Ever since its beginnings, our civilization has been based on a strict, unequivocal distinction between persons and things, founded on the instrumental domination of persons over things. ...

From an Other to the Other, Book XVI
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0603

Sollers once wrote that, to him, Claudel was first and foremost the man who wrote, "Paradise is around us at this very moment, all its forests attentive like a great orchestra that invisibly adores and implores. The whole invention of the Universe with its notes falling vertiginously one by one into the abyss where the wonders of our dimensions are written." Well, Lacan is, to me, the one who says in this Seminar, "We are all familiar with hell, it is everyday life." Is that the same thing? No, I don't think so. Here there is no adoratio...

(P/B) YOUTH ON SCREEN
REPRESENTING YOUNG PEOPLE IN FILM AND TELEVISION
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0597

Right from the origins of cinema, countless films and television dramas have offered sensational and seductive representations of young people's lives. Youth is typically associated with energy, idealism and physical beauty, but it is often represented as both troubled and troubling. These representations are almost always created by adults, implicitly reflecting an adult perspective on how young people 'come of age'. Youth on Screen provides a historical account of representations of youth in Britain and the United States, stretching back...

(P/B) DESIRE AND ITS INTERPRETATION
THE SEMINAR OF JACQUES LACAN, BOOK VI
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0588

What does Lacan show us? He shows us that desire is not a biological function; that it is not correlated with a natural object; and that its object is fantasized. Because of this, desire is extravagant. It cannot be grasped by those who might try to master it. It plays tricks on them. Yet if it is not recognized, it produces symptoms. In psychoanalysis, the goal is to interpret-that is, to read-the message regarding desire that is harbored within the symptom. Although desire upsets us, it also inspires us to invent artifices that can serve...

(P/B) DICTATORSHIP
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0450

Now available in English for the first time, Dictatorship is Carl Schmitt's most scholarly book and arguably a paradigm for his entire work. Written shortly after the Russian Revolution and the First World War, Schmitt analyses the problem of the state of emergency and the power of the Reichsprasident in declaring it. Dictatorship, Schmitt argues, is a necessary legal institution in constitutional law and has been wrongly portrayed as just the arbitrary rule of a so-called dictator. Dictatorship is an essential book for understanding the...

(P/B) THE STATE
PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0525

Debates about the role and nature of the state are at the heart of modern politics. However, the state itself remains notoriously difficult to define, and the term is subject to a range of different interpretations. In this book, distinguished state theorist Bob Jessop provides a critical introduction to the state as both a concept and a reality. He lucidly guides readers through all the major accounts of the state, and examines competing efforts to relate the state to other features of social organization. Essential themes in the analysis...

(P/B) THE THEORY OF COMMUNICATIVE ACTION (VOLUME 2)
THE CRITIQUE OF FUNCTIONALIST REASON
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0256

This study offers a systematic reconstruction of the theoretical foundations and framework of critical social theory. It is Habermas' "magnum opus", and it is regarded as one of the most important works of modern social thought. In this second and final volume of the work, Habermas examines the relations between action concepts and systems theory and elaborates a framework for analyzing the developmental tendencies of modern societies. He discusses in detail the work of Marx, Durkheim, G.H. Mead and Talcott Parsons, among others. By distin...

(P/B) READING MARX
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0532

Marx's critique of political economy is vital for understanding the crisis of contemporary capitalism. Yet the nature of its relevance and some of its key tenets remain poorly understood. This bold intervention brings together the work of leading Marx scholars Slavoj Zizek, Frank Ruda and Agon Hamza, to offer a fresh, radical reinterpretation of Marxism that explains the failures of neoliberalism and lays the foundations for a new emancipatory politics. Avoiding trite comparisons between Marx's world view and our current political scene, t...

(P/B) POSTHUMAN KNOWLEDGE
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0547

The question of what defines the human, and of what is human about the humanities, have been shaken up by the radical critiques of humanism and the displacement of anthropomorphism that have gained currency in recent years, propelled in part by rapid advances in our knowledge of living systems and of their genetic and algorithmic codes coupled with the global expansion of a knowledge-intensive capitalism. In Posthuman Knowledge, Rosi Braidotti takes a closer look at the impact of these developments on three major areas: the constitution of...

(P/B) THE THEORY OF COMMUNICATIVE ACTION (VOLUME 1)
REASON AND THE RATIONALIZATION OF SOCIETY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0255

Here, for the first time in English, is volume one of Jurgen Habermas's long-awaited magnum opus: The Theory of Communicative Action. This pathbreaking work is guided by three interrelated concerns: (1) to develop a concept of communicative rationality that is no longer tied to the subjective and individualistic premises of modern social and political theory; (2) to construct a two-level concept of society that integrates the 'lifeworld' and 'system' paradigms; and (3) to sketch out a critical theory of modernity that explains its sociopat...

(P/B) THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTIONS
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0344

In the autumn of 1905 Weber turned the full power of his intellect to the revolutionary events in Russia. Fascinated by the world-historical importance of the revolution, and dismayed by the coverage it received in the German press, Weber set out to write his own 'chronicles'. This book is the first English-language edition of these writings, and it also includes two essays written by Weber in the aftermath of the February revolution of 1917. Weber examines the various social classes which might function as the bearers of democratization i...

Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0004

What is time? How has our relationship to time changed through history and how does time structure our social lives? In this lively introduction, Barbara Adam explores the changing ways in which time has been understood and how this knowledge is embedded in cultural practices. She takes the reader on a journey of discovery that extends from ancient mythology and classical philosophy to the contemporary social world of high-speed computer networks and globalized social relations. The book poses key questions about the nature of time, how ...
