The sociology of Marx by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

93 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic study by Henri Lefebvre raises the question whether today we must study Marx as we study Plato, or rather whether Marx's work retains a contemporary value and significance; in other words, whether his work contributes to an elucidation of the contemporary world. For Lefebvre, Marx's thought remains a key--perhaps even the key--to an understanding of modern societies and modern reality
The production of space by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

98 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henri Lefebvre has considerable claims to be the greatest living philosopher. His work spans some sixty years and includes original work on a diverse range of subjects, from dialectical materialism to architecture, urbanism and the experience of everyday life. The Production of Space is his major philosophical work and its translation has been long awaited by scholars in many different fields. The book is a search for a reconciliation between mental space (the space of the philosophers) and real space (the physical and social spheres in which we all live). In the course of his exploration, Henri Lefebvre moves from metaphysical and ideological considerations of the meaning of space to its experience in the everyday life of home and city. He seeks, in other words, to bridge the gap between the realms of theory and practice, between the mental and the social, and between philosophy and reality. In doing so, he ranges through art, literature, architecture and economics, and further provides a powerful antidote to the sterile and obfuscatory methods and theories characteristic of much recent continental philosophy. This is a work of great vision and incisiveness. It is also characterized by its author's wit and by anecdote, as well as by a deftness of style which Donald Nicholson-Smith's sensitive translation precisely captures." --Publisher
The urban revolution by Henri Lefebvre( )

39 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1970, The Urban Revolution marked Henri Lefebvre's first sustained critique of urban society, a work in which he pioneered the use of semiotic, structuralist, and poststructuralist methodologies in analyzing the development of the urban environment. Although it is widely considered a foundational book in contemporary thinking about the city, The Urban Revolution has never been translated into English - until now. This first English edition, deftly translated by Robert Bononno, makes available to a broad audience Lefebvre's sophisticated insights into the urban dimensions of modern life. Lefebvre begins with the premise that the total urbanization of society is an inevitable process that demands of its critics new interpretive and perceptual approaches that recognize the urban as a complex field of inquiry. Dismissive of cold, modernist visions of the city, particularly those embodied by rationalist architects and urban planners like Le Corbusier, Lefebvre instead articulates the lived experiences of individual inhabitants of the city. In contrast to the ideology of urbanism and its reliance on commodification and bureaucratization - the capitalist logic of market and state - Lefebvre conceives of an urban utopia characterized by self-determination, individual creativity, and authentic social relationships

Dialectical materialism by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

112 editions published between 1939 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the aim of widening the scope of Marxist theory, Henri Lefebvre finished Dialectical Materialism just before the beginning of World War II and the Resistance movement against the Vichy regime. As the culmination of Lefebvre's interwar activities, the book highlights the tension-fraught relationship between Lefebvre and the French Communist Party (PCF). For Lefebvre, unlike for the PCF, Marxism was above all a dynamic movement of theory and practice. Dialectical Materialism is an implicit response to Joseph Stalin's Dialectical and Historical Materialism and an attempt to show that the Sta
State, space, world : selected essays by Henri Lefebvre( )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rhythmanalysis : space, time, and everyday life by Henri Lefebvre( )

33 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rhythmanalysis displays all the characteristics which made Lefebvre one of the most important Marxist thinkers of the twentieth century. In the analysis of rhythms -- both biological and social -- Lefebvre shows the interrelation of space and time in the understanding of everyday life. With dazzling skills, Lefebvre moves between discussions of music, the commodity, measurement, the media and the city. In doing so he shows how a non-linear conception of time and history balanced his famous rethinking of the question of space. This volume also includes his earlier essays on "The Rhythmanalysis Project" and "Attempt at the Rhythmanalysis of Mediterranean Towns."
Critique of everyday life by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

77 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyday Life is perhaps the richest, most prescient work by one of the twentieth century's greatest philosophers. The first volume presented an introduction to the concept of everyday life. Written twenty years later, this second volume attempts to establish the necessary formal instruments for analysis, and outlines a series of theoretical categories within everyday life such as the theory of the semantic field and the theory of moments. In its impetuous, often undisciplined prose, the reader may catch a glimpse of how charismatic a lecturer Lefebvre must have been
The explosion; Marxism and the French Revolution by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

40 editions published between 1968 and 1998 in 7 languages and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette analyse sur la "révolution de mai", écrite par le sociologue marxiste Henri Lefèbvre, traite d'un aspect particulier mais peut-être essentiel. Le mouvement n'a pu qu'entamer la "base" de la société existante ; par contre il en a ébranlé les superstructures, et certaines d'entre elles se sont littéralement effondrées
Toward an architecture of enjoyment by Henri Lefebvre( )

16 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toward an Architecture of Enjoyment is the first publication in any language of the only book devoted to architecture by Henri Lefebvre. Written in 1973 but only recently discovered in a private archive, this work extends Lefebvre's influential theory of urban space to the question of architecture. Taking the practices and perspective of habitation as his starting place, Lefebvre redefines architecture as a mode of imagination rather than a specialized process or a collection of monuments. He calls for an architecture of jouissance--of pleasure or enjoyment--centered on the body and its rhythms and based on the possibilities of the senses. Examining architectural examples from the Renaissance to the postwar period, Lefebvre investigates the bodily pleasures of moving in and around buildings and monuments, urban spaces, and gardens and landscapes. He argues that areas dedicated to enjoyment, sensuality, and desire are important sites for a society passing beyond industrial modernization. Lefebvre's theories on space and urbanization fundamentally reshaped the way we understand cities. Toward an Architecture of Enjoyment promises a similar impact on how we think about, and live within, architecture."--
Le marxisme by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

140 editions published between 1948 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il y a un siècle et demi, Karl Marx, peu avant la révolution de 1848, et en rapport étroit avec la fermentation révolutionnaire de l'Europe - aperçut, au départ dans l'indifférence générale, les grandes lignes de ce vaste ensemble théorique qui devait porter le nom de marxisme. Dès que l'influence et le rayonnement du marxisme commencèrent t s'imposer, les interprétations plus ou moins erronées et autres exégèses de son oeuvre se multiplièrent. En partant de l'oeuvre de l'auteur du Capital, Henri I,efebvre, dans cette introduction lue par des générations d'étudiants, expose la " conception du monde développée par Marx, conception philosophique, morale, sociologique, historique, économique et politique qui a profondément marqué le monde contemporain.

30 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The selection of writings is contextualized by an introduction - itself a significant contribution to the interpretation of Henri Lefebvre's work - which places the material within the context of Lefebvre's intellectual and political life and times and raises pertinent issues as to their relevance for contemporary debates over such questions as the nature of urban reality, the production of space and modernity."--Pub. desc

Du rural à l'urbain by Henri Lefebvre( Book )

36 editions published between 1970 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aunque De lo rural a lo urbano es una antología de trabajos dispersos del autor, la unidad que les confiere el enfoque de un mismo tema han convertido el presente volumen en una de las obras más importantes y más estructuradas de Lefebvre. Recopilados por Mario Gaviria, uno de los mejores conocedores de la obra de Henri Lefebvre, los trabajos que ahora se publican tienen, nos advierte el propio autor, "un centro teórico: las relaciones campo-ciudad, a saber, una razón dialéctica, una oposición conflictiva que tiende a trascender simultáneamente los antiguos conceptos de campo y ciudad en un 'tejido urbano' generalizado (Internet)
