Abstract

Written specifically to cover the A2 component of the GCE Government and Politics A-level, this book is a comprehensive introduction to the political ideas and movements that have shaped the modern world. Underpinned by the work of major thinkers such as Hobbes, Locke, Marx, Mill, Weber and others, the first half of the book looks at political concepts including the state and sovereignty, the nation, democracy, representation and legitimacy, freedom, equality and rights, obligation and citizenship. There is also a specific chapter which addresses the role of ideology in the shaping of politics and society. The second half of the book addresses traditional theoretical subjects such as socialism, Marxism and nationalism, before moving on to more contemporary movements such as environmentalism, ecologism and feminism. The subject is covered in a clear, accessible style, and includes a number of student-friendly features, such as chapter summaries, key points to consider, definitions and tips for further sources of information. There is a definite need for a text of this kind. It will be invaluable for students of government and politics at introductory level.

Abstract

Multicultural Dynamics and the Ends of History provides a strikingly original reading of key texts in the philosophy of history by Kant, Hegel, and Marx, as well as strong arguments for why these texts are still relevant to understanding history today. Réal Fillion offers a critical exposition of the theses of these three authors on the dynamics and the ends of history, in order to provide an answer to the question: "Where are we headed?" Grounding his answer in the twin observations that the world is becoming increasingly multicultural and increasingly unified, Fillion reasserts the task of the speculative philosophy of history as it had been understood by German philosophy: the articulation and understanding the historical process as a developmental whole.

Abstract

The blog The Funambulist: Architectural Narratives, a daily architectural platform written and edited by Léopold Lambert, finds its name in the consideration for architecture’s representative medium, the line, and its philosophical and political power when it materializes and subjectivizes bodies. If the white page represents a given milieu — a desert for example — and one comes to trace a line on it, (s)he will virtually split this same milieu into two distinct impermeable parts through its embodiment, the wall. The Funambulist, also known as a tightrope walker, is the character who, somehow, subverts this power by walking on the line. The Funambulist Pamphlets is a series of small books archiving articles published on The Funambulist, collected according to specific themes. These volumes propose a different articulation of texts than the usual chronological one. The eleven volumes are respectively dedicated to Spinoza, Foucault, Deleuze, Legal Theory, Occupy Wall Street, Palestine, Cruel Designs, Arakawa + Madeline Gins, Science Fiction, Literature, and Cinema.

Abstract

Part of Philosophical Theology in Transition (Vol. II/2): Atheistic Philosophers after Hegel and den scotistisch Tradition, wich obscures an phaenomenological and existential understanding of being (creation) as a gift, reject the existence of God to protect human dignity, independence and liberty, developed their own ontologies and are not postmetaphysical thinkers.

Abstract

La théorie de la reconnaissance constitue aujourd’hui un paradigme essentiel pour les sciences humaines et fait l’objet de multiples métamorphoses et controverses dans la pensée contemporaine, par exemple dans les domaines du droit, de la politique, de l’économie, de la morale, de l’éducation, de l’épistémologie. Le présent ouvrage de Hans-Christoph Schmidt am Busch offre l’exemple d’une réinterprétation active de la théorie envisagée aussi bien en rapport à l’exégèse de la tradition philosophique dont elle procède qu’au renouvellement du débat critique contemporain sur l’état de la société et du capitalisme. Le travail de Schmidt am Busch est représentatif de la façon dont une nouvelle génération de philosophes se confronte à la théorie de la reconnaissance en se rapportant à la fois aux textes fondateurs de Hegel et de Marx comme aux interprétations récentes d’Axel Honneth et Ludwig Siep, qui tous deux ont placé la philosophie hégélienne en général et la question de la reconnaissance en particulier au centre de leur investigation philosophique.

Abstract

Questo libro chiude una trilogia i cui momenti precedenti sono dati da Un parricidio mancato (2004), dedicato a un’analisi critica eterodossa del rapporto del giovane Marx con i suoi numi tutelari Hegel e Feuerbach, e Un parricidio compiuto (2014), che trattava della relazione ormai risolta del Marx maturo con Hegel. Nei capitoli-saggi che compongono il nuovo volume, l’autore, ampliando il discorso attraverso una lettura attenta di Freud, una ripresa di Spinoza, e con un confronto con la stessa tradizione postidealistica e antiheideggeriana del pensiero italiano (è una perla il capitolo su un maestro dimenticato come Guido Calogero), mette capo a un’originale proposta teorica: quella di un’antropologia filosofica dell’emancipazione basata su una visione bio-psicoanalitica della relazione corpo-mente nell’essere umano. Il fine è di concorrere così alla costruzione di una nuova etica sociale materialistica, al di là del vecchio materialismo storico, capace di sfidare le seduzioni più allettanti dell’individualismo atomizzante del consumo e del mercato. Una prospettiva che interviene direttamente nell’odierna crisi generale della sinistra, mostrando come questa sia anzitutto di ordine teorico e poi anche politico.

Abstract

Karl Marx' (1818-1883) Polemiken gegen das »Genie bürgerlicher Dummheit« Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) sind weithin bekannt. Gegenstand seiner strategischen Attacken war jedoch weniger die Person Bentham selbst, sondern vielmehr die bürgerliche Marktgläubigkeit der Zeit, zu dessen Stammvater er Bentham als »Urphilister« stilisierte. Jenseits seiner Polemik kam Marx aber tatsächlich zu einer ambivalenten Einschätzung von Benthams Utilitarismus. Beim systematischen Vergleich beider Autoren und deren Kritik an anti-demokratischen Zuständen deckt Gregor Ritschel viele gemeinsame Themen und Gedanken auf, die zusammengenommen eine neue, komplementäre Lesart zulassen.

Abstract

The Message is Murder analyses the violence bound up in the everyday functions of digital media. At its core is the concept of 'computational capital' - the idea that capitalism itself is a computer, turning qualities into quantities, and that the rise of digital culture and technologies under capitalism should be seen as an extension of capitalism's bloody logic.Engaging with Borges, Turing, Claude Shannon, Hitchcock and Marx, this book tracks computational capital to reveal the lineages of capitalised power as it has restructured representation, consciousness and survival in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.Ultimately The Message is Murder makes the case for recognising media communications across all platforms - books, films, videos, photographs and even language itself - as technologies of political economy, entangled with the social contexts of a capitalism that is inherently racial, gendered and genocidal.

Abstract

Marx und Nietzsche sind die exponierten Gestalten der nachidealistischen Philosophie, deren gemeinsame Substanz das Bewusstsein der Krise von Geist und Gesellschaft ist. Vor dem Hintergrund einer ausführlichen ideengeschichtlichen Rekonstruktion der Genesis des Denkens von Marx und Nietzsche eruiert dieses Buch systematisch die jeweiligen Theoriekerne und bringt sie dialektisch miteinander ins Spiel: Marx' Kritik der Verkehrung der Freiheit trifft auf Nietzsches tragische Aufklärung - eine notwendige Begegnung für die Möglichkeit einer aktuellen politischen Theorie der universellen und reflexiven Emanzipation des Nichtidentischen.
