(P/B) EROS AND THE INTOXICATIONS OF ENLIGHTENMENT
ON PLATO'S SYMPOSIUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0077

An original analysis of one of Plato’s most well-known and pivotal dialogues, this study is based upon the effort to think together the most manifest themes of the Symposium (the nature of eros and the relation between poetry and philosophy) with its less obvious but no less essential themes (the character of the city and the nature and limitations of sophistic enlightenment). Author Steven Berg offers an interpretation of this dialogue wherein all the speakers at the banquet -with the exception of Socrates- not only offer their views on t...

(P/B) KURT VONNEGUT'S CRUSADE
OR, HOW A POSTMODERN HARLEQUIN PREACHED A NEW KIND OF HUMANISM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0037

"I've worried some about why write books when presidents and senators and generals do not read them, and the university experience taught me a very good reason: you catch people before they become generals and senators and presidents, and you poison their minds with humanity. Encourage them to make a better world." - Kurt Vonnegut Kurt Vonnegut's desire to save the planet from environmental and military destruction, to enact change by telling stories that both critique and embrace humanity, sets him apart from many of the postmodern autho...

(P/B) FOUNDATIONS AND PUBLIC POLICY
THE MASK OF PLURALISM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0067

In this pathbreaking study of foundation influence, author Joan Roelofs produces a comprehensive picture of philanthropy's critical role in society. She shows how a vast number of policy innovations have arisen from the most important foundations, lessening the destructive impact of global "marketization." Conversely, groups and movements that might challenge the status quo are nudged into line with grants and technical assistance, and foundations also have considerable power to shape such things as public opinion, higher education, and el...

(H/B) PHILOSOPHY AND THE RECONSTRUCTION OF CULTURE
PRAGMATIC ESSAYS AFTER DEWEY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0062

"The book is timely and useful, for it brings together some of the best Dewey scholars and focuses on an issue not only at the center of Dewey's concern but also in need of the serious, sustained, and systematic attention it receives here." -- Vincent M. Colapietro, Fordham University "This is a near uniformly excellent collection of essays, which does more than merely interpret classical American philosophy but brings that tradition to bear upon central, present-day, cultural issues in original and thoughtful ways. Those represented all ...

(P/B) LEVINAS AND LACAN
THE MISSED ENCOUNTER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0000

Levinas and Lacan traces the similar concepts and logics of Jacques Lacan and Emmanuel Levinas, to explicitly render the rigorous questioning of the philosophic tradition undertaken by these thinkers, and to articulate the theoretical stakes and practical consequences of such a conjunction for ethics. In this book, contemporary philosophers examine this missed encounter between Levinas and Lacan by tracing their preoccupation with issues that emerge in late modernity: language, subjectivity, alterity, and ethics. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) ADORNO AND 'A WRITING OF THE RUINS'
ESSAYS ON MODERN AESTHETICS AND ANGLO-AMERICAN LITERATURE AND CULTURE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0057

Extends critical discussion of Adorno to works by Samuel Beckett, T.S. Eliot, Ralph Ellison, and Amiri Baraka, arguing that Adorno's work can best be assessed in terms of its relevance in specific localized contexts. Arguing that postmodernism has so shifted current critical paradigms that Adorno's work can best be assessed in terms of its relevance in specific localized contexts, this book pursues a course that preserves Adorno's opposition to hegemonic programs but that is also wary of Adorno's own (negative) penchant for totalizing conc...

(P/B) THE REAL GAZE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0061

The Real Gaze develops a new theory of the cinema by rethinking the concept of the gaze, which has long been central in film theory. Historically film scholars have located the gaze on the side of the spectator; however, Todd McGowan positions it within the filmic image, where it has the radical potential to disrupt the spectator's sense of identity and challenge the foundations of ideology. This book demonstrates several distinct cinematic forms that vary in terms of how the gaze functions within the films. Through a detailed investigatio...

(P/B) SPIRITS OF RESISTANCE AND CAPITALIST DISCIPLINE
FACTORY WOMEN IN MALAYSIA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0059

In the two decades since its original publication, Spirits of Resistance and Capitalist Discipline has become a classic in the fields of anthropology, labor, gender and globalization studies. Based on intensive fieldwork, the book captures a moment of profound transformation for rural Muslim women even as their labor helped launch Malaysia's rise as a tiger economy. Aihwa Ong's analysis of the disruptions, conflicts, and ambivalences that roiled the lives of working women has inspired later generations of feminist ethnographers in their st...

(P/B) INVISIBLE FACTORIES
INFORMAL ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT IN SPAIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0058

Invisible Factories analyzes the role of the informal economy in national development and weighs alternative claims about its impact on industrial development. Detailed case studies of the electronics and shoe industries in Spain demonstrate the restructuring process. Benton examines the transformation of ideas about work and gender, the shifting lines of conflict between workers and employers, and growing tensions between national and regional interests. She shows that these elements of the workplace and national politics, rather than the...

(P/B) MARKEDNESS
THE EVALUATIVE SUPERSTRUCTURE OF LANGUAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0056

Battistella traces the development of markedness theory as a central part of structuralist theories of language. He outlines the concepts of marked and unmarked from Prague School structuralism to present day applications in linguistic theory and cultural analysis, using the reference point of English grammar and sound structure. The author focuses on the fundamental asymmetry between terms of linguistic relationships, in which one term is more broadly defined and hence dominant (the unmarked term) while the other is more narrowly defined...

(P/B) THE REMOTE BORDERLAND
TRANSYLVANIA IN THE HUNGARIAN IMAGINATION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0052

Explores how Transylvania figures in the Hungarian imagination and how this border region functions in the creation of national identity. The Remote Borderland explores the significance of the contested region of Transylvania to the creation of Hungarian national identity. Author Laszlo Kurti illustrates the process by which European intellectuals, politicians, and artists locate their nation's territory, embody it with meaning, and reassert its importance at various historical junctures. The book's discussion of the contested and negotiat...

(P/B) HEIDEGGER AND PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0053

Leading scholars address the ethical and practical dimensions of Heidegger's thought. Heidegger has often been reproached for his alleged neglect of practical issues, specifically his "inability" to propose or articulate an ethics or politics. This book investigates the extent to which Heidegger's thought can be read as a crucial resource for practical philosophy and the articulation of an ethos for our time. Leading scholars from around the world offer a sustained and intensive focus on Heidegger's thought of praxis, working through such ...

(P/B) INTERROGATING THE TRADITION
HERMENEUTICS AND THE HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0050

Interrogating the Tradition interprets figures in the history of Western thought from a broad, "continental" perspective. Divided into three major sections--hermeneutical thought, Heidegger and the Greeks, and the question of nature in German Idealism--the question of origins is central throughout and takes various shapes, all within the context of the history of Western philosophy. Addressed are the form inquiries take into manners by which we receive our philosophical tradition, the originary force of Plato and Aristotle in the formation...

(P/B) THE ORPHIC MOMENT
SHAMAN TO POET-THINKER IN PLATO, NIETZSCHE, AND MALLARME
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3794-0049

This is an extraordinary book on Orpheus, one that is willing to circumvent explanations and fixed positions. Itself it teaches us how to live and imagine Orphically on the invisible and impossibly thin line that separates and unites all opposites. Robert McGahey writes with authority, sculpting out a precise place and time that is the Orphic moment, and he also straddles the difficult but necessary ambiguity of historical time and poetic eternity. The sheer joy of the book comes in part from the multiple fugal counterpoints of many school...
