Art in its time : theories and practices of modern aesthetics by Paul Mattick( )

23 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the role of art in everyday life? Art writing normally contrasts art with "everyday life." This book explores art as integral to the everyday life of modern society, providing materials to represent class and conflict, to explore sex and sexuality, and to think about modern industry and economic relationships. Art, as we know it, is not common to all forms of society but is peculiar to our own; what art is changes with people's conceptions of the tasks of art, conceptions that are themselves a part of social history. The history of society does not shape art from the outside, but includes the attempts of artists to find new ways of making art and thinking about it. The essays in Art in Its Time offer a critical examination of the central categories of art theory and history. They propose a mode of understanding grounded in concrete case studies of ideas and objects, exploring such topics as the gender content of eighteenth-century theories of the sublime and beautiful, the role of photography in the production of aesthetic 'aura, ' the limits of political art, and the paradox by which art, pursued for its own sake with no thought of commercial gain, can produce the highest-priced of all objects. Employing an unusually wide range of historical sources and theoretical perspectives to understand the place of art in capitalist society, Art in Its Time shows a way out of many of the cul-de-sacs of recent art history and theory
Business as usual : the economic crisis and the failure of capitalism by Paul Mattick( )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains the global economic downturn in relation to the development of the world economy since World War II, but also as a fundamental example of the cycle of crisis and recovery that has characterized capitalism since the early nineteenth century. Mattick argues that today's recession is not the result of a singular financial event but instead is a manifestation of long-term processes within the world economy. Arguing that the economic downturn can best be understood within the context of business cycles, which are unavoidable in a free-market economy, Mattick uses this explanation as a springboard for exploring the nature of our capitalist society and its prospects for the future.

Eighteenth-century aesthetics and the reconstruction of art by Paul Mattick( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eighteenth-Century Aesthetics and the Reconstruction of Art is a collection of essays exploring the rise of aesthetics as a response to, and as a part of, the reshaping of the arts in modern society. The theories of art that were developed under the name of "aesthetics" in the later eighteenth century have traditionally been understood as contributions to a field of study in existence at least since the time of Plato. If art is a practice to be found in all human societies, then the philosophy of art is the search for universal features of that practice, statable in definitions of art and beauty. Despite appearances to the contrary, however, art as we know it - the system of "fine arts"--Is largely peculiar to modern society. Aesthetics, far from being a perennial discipline, emerged when it did in an effort both to understand and to shape this new social practice. The essays included in this volume share the conviction that aesthetic ideas can be fully understood when seen not only in relation to intellectual and social contexts but as themselves constructed in history. This is relevant to the concept of art itself, which acquired its current meaning in relation to actual changes in the social uses made of painting, writing, and the other media. Ranging widely in method, with allegiance to no particular theoretical outlook, these studies are both grounded in the history of philosophy and drawn from recent developments in literary theory, art history, and social history, and seek to clarify philosophical issues by taking their historical content into account

Theory as critique : essays on Capital by Paul Mattick( )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theory as Critique, while discussing many central issues of Marxian theory, has two main emphases: First, as the title suggests, it takes seriously Capital's claim to be a critique of economic theory, rather than a contribution to political economy. Understanding what this means, it shows, goes far to unraveling many difficulties traditionally found in Marx's book, from the nature of his theory of class to the 'transformation problem'. Secondly, Mattick's volume carefully explores how to bridge the gap between the extreme abstraction of Marx's ideas and the complex reality that they are intended to help us understand."--Page 4 of cover
Bloodstained : one hundred years of Leninist counterrevolution by Iain McKay( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the centenary of the 1917 Russian Revolution, paeans to the conquering Bolsheviks will be sung. Bloodstained highlights the darker echoes coming from that event, with a mixture of classic and new essays that expose a murderous dictatorship as it developed, paving the way for Stalin, Mao, Castro, and others to slaughter and starve their opponents. The defense of this criminal enterprise, later categorized as "actually existing socialism," ends here. No more velvet-gloved hagiography. No more Lenins. Includes essays from Mark Leier, Barry Pateman, Alexander Berkman, Iain MacKay, Herman Gorter, Rudolf Rocker, Luigi Fabbri, Maurice Brinton, and more."--
