(P/B) ANOTHER ECONOMY IS POSSIBLE
CULTURE AND ECONOMY IN A TIME OF CRISIS
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0585

Throughout the Western world, governments and financial elites responded to the financial crisis of 2008 by trying to restore the conditions of business as usual, but the economic, social and human damage inflicted by the crisis has given rise to a reconsideration of the inevitability of unfettered capitalism as a fact of life. A number of economic practices and organizations emerged in Europe and the United States that embodied alternative values: the value of life over the value of money; the effectiveness of cooperation over cut-throat ...

(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) POSTHUMAN FEMINISM
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0586

In a context marked by the virulent return of patriarchal and white supremacist attitudes, a new generation of activists, from the Xenofeminists to Pussy Riot, are continuing the struggle, fighting alongside star feminists like Emma Watson and Scarlett Johansson: these are very feminist times. But how do these and other struggles relate to our contemporary posthuman condition? In this important new book, Rosi Braidotti examines the implications of the posthuman turn for feminist theory and practice. She defines the posthuman turn as a conv...

(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...

(P/B) FORMATIONS OF THE UNCONSCIOUS
THE SEMINAR OF JACQUES LACAN, BOOK V
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0587

When I decided to explore the question of Witz, or wit, with you this year, I undertook a small enquiry. It will come as no surprise at all that I began by questioning a poet. This is a poet who introduces the dimension of an especially playful wit that runs through his work, as much in his prose as in more poetic forms, and which he brings into play even when he happens to be talking about mathematics, for he is also a mathematician. I am referring to Raymond Queneau. While we were exchanging our first remarks on the matter he told me a j...

(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) THE PLURAL ACTOR
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0469

The individual that the social sciences take as an object is most often studied in a particular context or from a single dimension. The actor is analysed as a student, worker, consumer, spouse, reader, sportsperson, voter, etc. However, in societies where people often live through simultaneously and successively heterogeneous and sometimes contradictory social experiences, each individual inevitably carries a plurality of roles and manners of seeing, feeling and acting. The aim of this study is to consider the ways in which this plurality ...

(P/B) THE CONSTITUTION OF SOCIETY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0277

Anthony Giddens has been in the forefront of developments in social theory for the past decade. In The Constitution of Society he outlines the distinctive position he has evolved during that period and offers a full statement of a major new perspective in social thought, a synthesis and elaboration of ideas touched on in previous works but described here for the first time in an integrated and comprehensive form, A particular feature is Giddens's concern to connect abstract problems of theory to an interpretation of the nature of empirical...

(P/B) LIQUID SURVEILLANCE
A CONVERSATION
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0493

Today the smallest details of our daily lives are tracked and traced more closely than ever before, and those who are monitored often cooperate willingly with the monitors. From London and New York to New Delhi, Shanghai and Rio de Janeiro, video cameras are a familiar and accepted sight in public places. Air travel now commonly involves devices such as body-scanners and biometric checks that have proliferated in the wake of 9/11. And every day Google and credit-card issuers note the details of our habits, concerns and preferences, quietly...

(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) SYRIZA IN POWER
REFLECTIONS OF AN ACCIDENTAL POLITICIAN. BY COSTAS DOUZINAS
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0521

Amid the turmoil of economic crisis, Greece has become the first European experiment of left rule in a sea of neoliberalism. What happens when a government of the Left, committed to social justice and the reversal of austerity, is blackmailed into following policies it has fought against and strongly opposes? What can the experience of the Syriza government tell us about the prospects for the Left in the twenty-first century? In this engaging and provocative book, Costas Douzinas uses his position as an 'accidental politician', unexpectedl...

(P/B) DEMOCRACY AND COMMUNITY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0554

The concept of community is tainted by the events of the twentieth century, frequently appropriated by totalitarian regimes for the purposes of exclusion and oppression. In this dialogue with Peter Engelmann, philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy attempts to reframe community as central to a reconceptualization of politics and democracy. Observing that all our interactions are in some way shared experiences, Nancy demonstrates that a common sense of life precedes our existence as individuals: we can only truly make sense of life in a plurality. Democ...

(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) WILL THE GIG ECONOMY PREVAIL?
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0549

Increasingly, employees are being falsely treated as 'self-employed'. This phenomenon - the 'gig economy' - is seen as the inevitable shape of things to come. In this book, Colin Crouch takes a step back and questions this logic. He shows how the idea of an employee - a stable status that involves a bundle of rights - has maintained a curious persistence. Examining the ways companies are attacking these rights, from proffering temporary work to involuntary part-time work to 'gigging', he reveals the paradoxes of the situation and argues th...

(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) 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) 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 ...

SOCIAL SUFFERING IN CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY

This book can be read like a series of short stories - the story of a steel worker who was laid off after twenty years in the same factory and who now struggles to support his family on unemployment benefits and a part-time job; the story of a trade unionist who finds his goals undermined by the changing nature of work; the story of a family from Algeria living in a housing estate in the outskirts of Paris whose members have to cope with pervasive, everyday forms of racism; the story of a school teacher confronted with urban violence; and ...

(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'...
