(P/B) PHILOSOPHY, MYTH AND EPIC CINEMA
BEYOND MERE ILLUSIONS
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0095

Philosophy, Myth and Epic Cinema looks at the power of cinema in creating ideas that inspire our culture. Sylvie Magerst?dt discusses the relationship between art, illusion and reality, a theme that has been part of philosophical debate for centuries. She argues that with the increase in use of digital technologies in modern cinema, this debate has entered a new phase. She discusses the notion of illusions as a system of stories and values that inspire a culture similar to other grand narratives, such as mythology or religion. Cinema thus ...

(P/B) THE EVOLUTION OF HUMAN SOCIALITY
A DARWINIAN CONFLICT PERSPECTIVE
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0105

This book attempts a broad theoretical synthesis within the field of sociology and its closely allied sister discipline of anthropology. It draws together what the author considers the best of these disciplines' theoretical approaches into a synthesized theory called Darwinian conflict theory. This theory, in the most general sense, is a synthesis of the tradition of economic and ecological materialism and conflict theory stemming from Marx, Marvin Harris, and the tradition of biological materialism deriving from Darwin. The first half of ...

CLASS AND HUMOR FROM THE 1920S TO THE PRESENT
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0108

High Comedy in American Movies explores the "comedy of manners" film throughout the twentieth century, from the advent of movie sound to recent films, and shows how class comedy's inside view of the aristocratic lifestyle has been influenced by the culture and times in which the movies are produced. Outlining the conventions of class comedy, Steve Vineberg discusses its British roots and analyzes how many American filmmakers have modified the genre, creating a distinctly American approach to class. Easily accessible, High Comedy in America...

(P/B) RECUPTURING SOPHOCLES' ANTIGONE
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0063

In this book, Wm. Blake Tyrrell and Larry J. Bennett examine Sophocles' Antigone in the context of its setting in fifth-century Athens. The authors attempt to create an interpretive environment that is true to the issues and interests of fifth-century Athenians, as opposed to those of modern scholars and philosophers. As they contextualize the play in the dynamics of ancient Athens, the authors discuss the text of the Antigone in light of recent developments in the study of Greek antiquity and tragedy, and they turn to modern Greek rituals...

(P/B) ARENDT, LEVINAS AND A POLITICS OF RELATIONALITY
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0097

Born in Eastern Europe, educated in the West under the guidance of Martin Heidegger and the phenomenological tradition, and forced to flee during the Holocaust because of their Jewish identity, it should come as no surprise that Emmanuel Levinas and Hannah Arendt's ideas intersect in an important way. This book demonstrates for the first time the significance of a dialogue between Levinas' ethics of alterity and Arendt's politics of plurality. Anya Topolski brings their respective projects into dialogue by means of the notion of relational...

(P/B) NAZIS AFTER HITLER
HOW PERPETRATORS OF THE HOLOCAUST CHEATED JUSTICE AND TRUTH
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0070

This deeply researched and informative book traces the biographies of thirty "typical" perpetrators of the Holocaust - some well known, some obscure - who survived World War II. Donald M. McKale reveals the shocking reality that the perpetrators were only rarely, if ever, tried or punished for their crimes, and nearly all alleged their innocence in Germany's extermination of nearly six million European Jews during the war. He highlights the bitter contrasts between the comfortable postwar lives of many war criminals and the enduring suffer...

(P/B) THE COSMOPOLITAN IDEAL
CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0100

Cosmopolitanism has resurfaced as a prominent perspective within philosophy and the social sciences. Its critics, though, suggest that contemporary cosmopolitanism is abstract and ultimately meaningless, or that it is the globalized expression of a very European, and modern, ideal. This book aims to develop a new cosmopolitanism: one that is critical, inclusive, and relevant for the twenty-first century. The first section considers why we should behave as cosmopolitans at all; why do we owe some concept of justice to those who are sufferin...

(H/B) GANGSTERS AND G-MEN ON SCREEN
CRIME CINEMA THEN AND NOW
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0099

While the gangster film may have enjoyed its heyday in the 1930s and '40s, it has remained a movie staple for almost as long as cinema has existed. From the early films of Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, and Edward G. Robinson to modern versions like Bugsy, Public Enemies, and Gangster Squad, such films capture the brutality of mobs and their leaders. In Gangsters and G-Men on Screen: Crime Cinema Then and Now, Gene D. Phillips revisits some of the most popular and iconic representations of the genre. While this volume offers new perspectiv...

(P/B) THE POLITICAL IS POLITICAL
CONFORMITY AND THE ILLUSION OF DISSENT IN CONTEMPORARY POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0096

Nobody should really have to point out that political philosophy is political. Yet in this highly original and provocative book Lorna Finlayson argues that in fact it is necessary to do so. Offering a critique of mainstream liberal political philosophy through close, critical engagement with a series of specific debates and arguments, Finlayson analyzes the way in which apparently neutral methodological devices such as "charitable interpretation" and "constructive criticism" function so as to protect against challenges to the status quo. A...

(P/B) CLASSICAL SOCIAL THEORY AND MODERN SOCIETY
MARX, DURKHEIM, WEBER
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0091

Karl Marx, Emile Durkheim, and Max Weber are indispensable for understanding the sociological enterprise. They are among the chief founders of the discipline and among the foremost theorists of modernity, and their work can stimulate readers to reflect on their own identities and worldviews. Classical Social Theory and Modern Society introduces students to these three thinkers and shows their continued relevance today. The first chapter sets the stage by situating the work of Marx, Durkheim, and Weber in the context of three modernizing r...

(P/B) KIERKEGAARD AND THE MATTER OF PHILOSOPHY
A FRACTURED DIALECTIC
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0094

Soren Kierkegaard is often cast as the forefather of existentialism and an anti-Hegelian proponent of the single individual. Yet this book calls these traditional characterizations into question by arguing that Kierkegaard offers not only a systematic critique of idealist philosophy, but more surprisingly, a political ontology that is paradoxically at home in the context of twenty-first-century philosophical and political thought. Through a close consideration of his authorship in the context of nineteenth-century German idealism, Michael...

(P/B) MEDIA AFTER KITTLER
Εκδότης: ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3678-0092

Is it possible to incite a turn towards Media Philosophy, a field that accounts for the autonomy of media, for machine agency and for the new modalities of thought and subjectivity that these enable, rather than dwelling on representations, audiences and extensions of the self? In the wake of the field-defining work done by Friedrich Kittler, this important collection of essays takes a philosophical approach to the end of the media era in the traditional sense and outlines the implications of a turn that sees media become concepts of the ...
