Growing up absurd; problems of youth in the organized system by Paul Goodman ( Book )
57 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paul Goodman's Growing Up Absurd was a runaway best seller when it was first published in 1960, and it became one of the defining texts of the New Left. Goodman was a writer and thinker who broke every mold and did it brilliantly'he was a novelist, poet, and a social theorist, among a host of other things'and the book's surprise success established him as one of America's most unusual and trenchant critics, combining vast learning, an astute mind, utopian sympathies, and a wonderfully hands-on way with words. For Goodman, the unhappiness of young people was a concentrated form of the unhappiness of American society as a whole, run by corporations that provide employment (if and when they do) but not the kind of meaningful work that engages body and soul. Goodman saw the young as the first casualties of a humanly repressive social and economic system and, as such, the front line of potential resistance. Noam Chomsky has said, "Paul Goodman's impact is all about us," and certainly it can be felt in the powerful localism of today's renascent left. A classic of anarchist thought, Growing Up Absurd not only offers a penetrating indictment of the human costs of corporate capitalism but points the way forward. It is a tale of yesterday's youth that speaks directly to our common future

Drawing the line once again Paul Goodman's anarchist writings by Paul Goodman ( )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Painting a vivid picture of 1960s counterculture ideas, this new collection of the late Paul Goodman's essential anarchist writings?from utopian essays to practical proposals?reveals how he inspired the dissident youth of the era and profoundly influenced movement theory and practice. Long out-of-print, these provocative, insightful, and incisive pieces analyze citizenship and civil disobedience, decentralization and the organized system?all while still mindful of the long anarchist tradition and of the Jeffersonian democracy that resonated strongly in Goodman's own political thought. A potent antidote to U.S. global imperialism and domestic anomie, this collection also includes a new introduction by Goodman's friend and literary executor, Taylor Stoehr, who explains why these nine core texts will thoroughly explicate anarchism for future generations
New reformation notes of a neolithic conservative by Paul Goodman ( )
8 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Emphasizing the importance of culture and the arts in society, this reprint of a 1960s classic?the author's last book of social criticism?includes a new introduction that situates the late Paul Goodman in his era and traces the development of his characteristic insights. The probing introduction speaks for a new generation of young scholars as it discusses the initial impact and continuing relevance of Goodman's problematic love affair with the radical youth of the 1960s. Timely and compelling, Goodman's narrative reassesses what he considered a moral and spiritual upheaval comparable to the Protestant Reformation?the breakdown of belief, and the emergence of new belief, in sciences and professions, education, and civil legitimacy. With new analysis of 1960s activism, this survey shows that Goodman's prescient voice is as relevant today as it was four decades ago
