(P/B) NEW DARK AGE
TECHNOLOGY AND THE END OF THE FUTURE
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0694

We live in times of increasing inscrutability. Our news feeds are filled with unverified, unverifiable speculation, much of it automatically generated by anonymous software. As a result, we no longer understand what is happening around us. Underlying all of these trends is a single idea: the belief that quantitative data can provide a coherent model of the world, and the efficacy of computable information to provide us with ways of acting within it. Yet the sheer volume of information available to us today reveals less than we hope. Rather...

(P/B) AGAINST METHOD
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0248

Paul Feyerabend's globally acclaimed work, which sparked and continues to stimulate fierce debate, examines the deficiencies of many widespread ideas about scientific progress and the nature of knowledge. Feyerabend argues that scientific advances can only be understood in a historical context. He looks at the way the philosophy of science has consistently overemphasized practice over method, and considers the possibility that anarchism could replace rationalism in the theory of knowledge. This updated edition of the classic text includes ...

(P/B) THE PERFECT CRIME
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0115

In his new book, perhaps the most cogent expression of his mature thought, Jean Baudrillard turns detective in order to investigate a crime which he hopes may yet be solved: the "murder" of reality. To solve the crime would be to unravel the social and technological processes by which reality has quite simply vanished under the deadly glare of media "real time". But Baudrillard is not merely intending to lament the disappearance of the real, an occurrence he recently described as "the most important event of modern history", nor even to me...

(P/B) ON IDEOLOGY
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0286

The publication of "For Marx and Reading Capital" established Louis Althusser as one of the most controversial figures in the Western Marxist tradition, and one of the most influential renewals of Marxist thought. Collected here are Althusser's most significant philosophical writings from the late sixties and through the seventies. Intended to contribute, in his own words, to a "left-wing critique of Stalinism that would help put some substance back into the revolutionary project here in the West", they are the record of a shared history. ...

REFLECTIONS ON THE ORIGIN AND SPREAD OF NATIONALISM
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0124

The definitive, bestselling book on the origins and development of nationalism.

Since then it has sold over a quarter of a million copies and is widely considered the most important book on the subject. In this greatly anticipated revised edition, Anderson updates and elaborates on the core question: what makes people live, die and kill in the name of nations? He shows how an originary nationalism born in the...

(P/B) IS MOTHER DEAD
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0793

"To mother is to murder, or close enough," thinks Johanna, as she looks at the spelling of the two words in Norwegian. She's recently widowed and back in Oslo after a long absence as she prepares for a retrospective of her art. The subject of her work is motherhood and some of her more controversial paintings have brought aboiut a dramatic rift between parent and child. This new proximity, after decades of acrimonius absence, set both women on edge, and before too long Johanna finds her mother stalking her thoughts, and Johanna starts stal...

(H/B) TOWARDS A GREEN DEMOCRATIC REVOLUTION
LEFT POPULISM AND THE POWER OF AFFECTS
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0794

In recent years, the promises of the populist moment have faltered, as seen in the defeats of Jeremy Corbyn, Bernie Sanders, Jean-Luc Melenchon. In addition, the pandemic has brought about a strong need for protection, creating a favorable terrain for authoritarian forms of politics. This new situation represents a challenge for the left, whose rationalism and modernist idea of progress is rightly suspicious of such demands. How, therefore, can the left deal with the economic, social and ecological crisis that the pandemic has brought to t...

(P/B) DEMOCRACY IN THE POLITICAL PRESENT
A QUEER-FEMINIST THEORY
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0795

A queer feminist theory of democracy "Presentist democracy is without a people and without nation. Rather than regimes of borders and migration, its borders are sexism and racism, homo- and transphobia, colonialism and extractivism." In the midst of the crises and threats to liberal democracy, Isabell Lorey develops a democracy in the present tense; one which breaks open political certainties and linear concepts of progress and growth. Her queer feminist political theory formulates a fundamental critique of masculinist concepts of the peop...

(H/B) WINSTON CHURCHILL
HIS TIMES, HIS CRIMES
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0780

The modern Churchill cult is out of control, closing down debate and encouraging support for twenty-first-century wars. The wartime leader has become a household god for many, preserving an antiquated vision of Britain still shared by all three parties. Yet, was he anything more than a plump carp happy to swim in the foulest of ponds to defend the Empire? Churchill himself never bothered to conceal his passionate defence of the British Empire or its attendant racism. On a more personal level, his complacent self-belief influenced his every...

(P/B) TOMORROW SEX WILL BE GOOD AGAIN
WOMEN AND DESIRE IN THE AGE OF CONSENT
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0771

Women are in a bind. In the name of consent and empowerment, they must proclaim their desires clearly and confidently. Yet sex researchers suggest that women's desire is often slow to emerge. And men are keen to insist that they know what women-and their bodies-want. Meanwhile, sexual violence abounds. How can women, in this environment, possibly know what they want? And why do we expect them to?In this elegant, searching book-spanning science and popular culture; pornography and literature; debates on Me-Too, consent and feminism-Katherin...

(H/B) MODERN TIMES
TEMPORALITY IN ART AND POLITICS
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0774

The critique of modernist ideology from France's leading radical theorist Time is more than a line drawn from the past to the future. It is a form of life, marked by the ancient hierarchy between those who have time and those who do not. This hierarchy still governs a present which clings to the fable of historical necessity and its experts. In opposition to this, Jacques Ranciere shows how the break with the hierarchical conception of time implies a completely different idea of the modern. He sees the fulfilment of this in two arts of mov...

(P/B) FUTURE OF THE IMAGE
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0169

A leading philosopher presents a radical manifesto for the future of art and film. In The Future of the Image, Jacques Ranciere develops a fascinating new concept of the image in contemporary art, showing how art and politics have always been intrinsically intertwined. He argues that there is a stark political choice in art: it can either reinforce a radical democracy or create a new reactionary mysticism. For Ranciere there is never a pure art: the aesthetic revolution must always embrace egalitarian ideals. (From the publisher)...
