(P/B) LECTURES ON NEGATIVE DIALECTICS
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0350

This volume comprises one of the key lecture courses leading up to the publication in 1966 of Adorno's major work, Negative Dialectics. These lectures focus on developing the concepts critical to the introductory section of that book. They show Adorno as an embattled philosopher defining his own methodology among the prevailing trends of the time. As a critical theorist, he repudiated the worn-out Marxist stereotypes still dominant in the Soviet bloc -- he specifically addresses his remarks to students who had escaped from the East in the ...

(P/B) CULTURAL HYBRIDITY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0282

The period in which we live is marked by increasingly frequent and intense cultural encounters of all kinds. However we react to it, the global trend towards mixing or hybridization is impossible to miss, from curry and chips - recently voted the favourite dish in Britain - to Thai saunas, Zen Judaism, Nigerian Kung Fu, 'Bollywood' films or salsa or reggae music. Some people celebrate these phenomena, whilst others fear or condemn them. No wonder, then, that theorists such as Homi Bhabha, Stuart Hall, Paul Gilroy, and Ien Ang, have engaged...

(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) LIQUID FEAR
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0248

Modernity was supposed to be the period in human history when the fears that pervaded social life in the past could be left behind and human beings could at last take control of their lives and tame the uncontrolled forces of the social and natural worlds. And yet, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, we live again in a time of fear. Whether it's the fear of natural disasters, the fear of environmental catastrophes or the fear of indiscriminate terrorist attacks, we live today in a state of constant anxiety about the dangers that could...

(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 ...

(P/B) WALTER BENJAMIN AND THE MEDIA
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0466

Walter Benjamin (1892-1940), one of the most original and perceptive thinkers of the twentieth century, offered a unique insight into the profound impact of the media on modern society. Jaeho Kang's book offers a lucid introduction to Benjamin's theory of the media and its continuing relevance today. The book provides a systematic and close reading of Benjamin's critical and provocative writings on the intersection between media - from print to electronic - and modern experience, with reference to the information industry, the urban specta...

(P/B) THE SECOND COMING
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0546

We have entered the gateway to the apocalypse. This theological concept is the best metaphor to describe the world in which we are already living. Chaos is all around us: political folly, economical delirium, ecological catastrophe, intellectual cynicism, technological simulation of life. This is what Franco 'Bifo' Berardi suggests in this wry, dark, disconcerting but also brilliant and invigorating journey through the main events that we have witnessed in recent years. One century after the Communist revolution, the very idea that the wor...

(P/B) HOW TO STOP LIVING AND START WORRYING
CONVERSATIONS WITH CARL CEDERSTROM
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0393

The question of how to lead a happy and meaningful life has been at the heart of philosophical debate since time immemorial. Today, however, these questions seem to be addressed not by philosophers but self-help gurus, who frantically champion the individual's quest for self-expression and self-realization; the desire to become authentic. Against these new age sophistries, How to Stop Living and Start Worrying tackles the question of 'how to live' by forcing us to explore our troubling relationship with death. For Critchley, philosophy beg...

(P/B) UBERWORKED AND UNDERPAID
HOW WORKERS ARE DISRUPTING THE DIGITAL ECONOMY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0565

This book is about the rise of digital labor. Companies like Uber and Amazon Mechanical Turk promise autonomy, choice, and flexibility. One of network culture's toughest critics, Trebor Scholz chronicles the work of workers in the "sharing economy," and the free labor on sites like Facebook, to take these myths apart. In this rich, accessible, and provocative book, Scholz exposes the uncaring reality of contingent digital work, which is thriving at the expense of employment and worker rights. The book is meant to inspire readers to join th...

(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 STATE NOBILITY
ELITE SCHOOLS IN THE FIELD OF POWER
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0217

In this major work, Bourdieu examines the distinctive forms of power - political, intellectual, bureaucratic and economic - by means of which contemporary societies are governed. What kinds of competence are claimed by the bureaucrats and technocrats who administer our societies? And how do those who govern come to gain the recognition of those who are governed by them? Bourdieu examines in detail the work of consecration which is carried out by the educational system - and especially in France by the grandes ecoles. The work of consecrati...

(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...

(H/B) WHAT IS AT STAKE NOW
MY APPEAL FOR PEACE AND FREEDOM
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0577

Thirty years after the end of the Cold War, world peace is at risk again. The United States has withdrawn from the disarmament treaty with Russia, Europe is disintegrating, China is surging forward and a wave of nationalism and populism is destabilizing established political institutions and endangering hard-won liberties. Moreover, the coronavirus pandemic has brought into sharp relief the fragility of the global order and the speed with which it can slide into chaos. In view of this dangerous and unpredictable state of affairs, Mikhail G...

(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...

(P/B) BEYOND JOURNALISM
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0584

In the context of profound transformations in the professional, business, technological and social context of journalism, it is crucial for journalism studies and education to move beyond limited approaches to the discipline. Among the most significant changes affecting journalism worldwide is the emergence of startup culture, as more and more journalists strike out on their own. In Beyond Journalism, Deuze and Witschge combine extensive global and comparative fieldwork. Through rich case studies of journalism startups around the world, th...

(P/B) POSTANARCHISM
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0573

What shape can radical politics take today in a time abandoned by the great revolutionary projects of the past? In light of recent uprisings around the world against the neoliberal capitalist order, Saul Newman argues that anarchism - or as he calls it postanarchism - forms our contemporary political horizon. In this book, Newman develops an original political theory of postanarchism; a form of anti-authoritarian politics which starts, rather than finishes, with anarchy. He does this by asking four central questions: who are we as subjects...

(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. ...

(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) MODERNITY AND SELF-IDENTITY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0260

This major study develops a new account of modernity and its relation to the self. Building upon the ideas set out in The Consequences of Modernity, Giddens argues that 'high' or 'late' modernity is a post traditional order characterised by a developed institutional reflexivity. In the current period, the globalising tendencies of modern institutions are accompanied by a transformation of day-to-day social life having profound implications for personal activities. The self becomes a 'reflexive project', sustained through a revisable narrat...
