The philosophy of Marx by Étienne Balibar( Book )

"The only guide to Marx that the student and scholar will need. Providing a lucid and accessible introduction to Marx, complete with pedagogical boxes, a chronology and guides to further reading, Etienne Balibar makes the most difficult areas of his philosophy easy to understand. One of the most influential French philosophers to have emerged from the 1960s, Balibar brings a lifetime of study and expertise to create a brilliantly concise portrait of Marx that will initiate the student and intrigue the scholar. He examines all the key areas of Marx's writings, including his early works, The Communist Manifesto, The German Ideology and Capital, explaining their wider historical and theoretical context. Making clear such concepts as class struggle, ideology, humanism, progress, determinism, commodity fetishism and the state, Balibar includes brief yet incisive biographical studies of key Marxists such as Althusser, Gramsci, Engels and Lenin. The Philosophy of Marx will become the standard guide to Marx's thought."--Publisher's description

Packed with clear-sighted historical analysis and productive debates, this book marks a major shift in Western Marxism towards a deeper understanding of social strife
Spinoza and politics by Étienne Balibar( Book )

53 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spinoza y la política: ¡qué paradoja, a primera vista, en esta simple formulación! Si la política es del orden de la historia, he aquí un filósofo en el cual, todo su sistema se presenta como el desarrollo de la idea de que conocer es conocer a Dios, y que Dios es la Naturaleza misma. Si la política es del orden de la pasión, he aquí un filósofo que se propone conocer (intelligere) los deseos y las acciones de los hombres "a la manera de los Geómetras ... como si fuera cuestión de curvas, superficies y volúmenes". Si la política es la toma de partido en la actualidad, he aquí un filósofo para quien, justamente, la sabiduría y el soberano bien consisten en concebir todas las cosas singulares "desde el punto de vista de la eternidad". ¿Qué nos podría decir que no sea pura especulación? Sin embargo, él mismo no vio ninguna contradicción, muy por el contrario, en la combinación de la inteligencia y la convicción, del concepto y la práctica. Al comenzar su Tratado Político, y retomando las mismas expresiones, se propone alcanzar "las conclusiones que concuerdan mejor con la práctica", dice, "deduciéndolas de la propia condición de la naturaleza humana ... con la misma libertad de espíritu a la cual los matemáticos nos tienen acostumbrados", a fin de conocer las acciones humanas por sus causas necesarias, "en lugar de burlarse de ellas, deplorarlas y maldecirlas". Y la primera gran obra de su madurez, el Tratado Teológico-Político, había sido un libro de combate, un manifiesto filosófico y político en el cual no sería difícil encontrar algunos detalles irónicos o de preocupación, si no de condena."--Contratapa

Citizenship by Étienne Balibar( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If fundamental political categories were represented as geometric shapes, citizenship would be one of those rotating polyhedrons with reflective surfaces that together create effects of light and shade. With extraordinarily acute discernment, the leading philosopher Étienne Balibar examines one by one the various faces of this object, more numerous - and far more fissured - than one would imagine. The question of what it means to be a citizen has, from the dawn of Western politics, been anything but clear and straightforward; and modernity has shown it to be even more enigmatic and contested. Inseparable from democracy, and the demands for equality and liberty from which democracy draws its origins, citizenship is constantly being redefined within the unresolved contradiction between universal principles and the discriminatory mechanisms that regulate membership of a political community. Not everyone is a citizen, even within one nation-state. It has been said that certain persons are in society without being of society? The dynamics of inclusion and exclusion continue to generate dramatic asymmetries and create openings and closures, especially today in a time of particular fragility and when national sovereignty is in flux. So are there too many antinomies within citizenship? Balibar does not shy away from these antimonies, but he knows that to renounce citizenship would be to abandon the chance to create new modes of collective autonomy, in short, to democratize democracy.--
Identity and difference : John Locke and the invention of consciousness by Étienne Balibar( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Locke's foundational place in the history of British empiricism and liberal political thought is well established. So, in what sense can Locke be considered a modern European philosopher? Identity and Difference argues for reassessing this canonical figure. Closely examining the "treatise on identity" added to the second edition of An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, Étienne Balibar demonstrates Locke's role in the formation of two concepts central to the metaphysics of the subject--consciousness and the self--and the complex philosophical, legal, moral and political nature of his terms. With an accompanying essay by Stella Sandford, situating Balibar's reading of Locke in the history of the reception of the Essay and within Balibar's other writings on "the subject," Identity and Difference rethinks a crucial moment in the history of Western philosophy
