The politics and pleasures of consuming differently( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection offers a vital intervention in the context of this anxiety, disenchantment and openness to other ways of living. It engages with these developments as they are being reflected in culture and shaping experience in Britain, Europe and the United States. Its 'alternative hedonist' perspective informs an analysis that covers representations in film, TV and writing; new initiatives in the production and marketing of food; the ethics and politics of consumer choice; and philosophical and cultural enquiry into the nature of happiness and desire. Original, forcefully written and timely, it points towards a new interdisciplinary understanding of how the consumer society and its future will be theorised, researched and taught in higher education and beyond."--BOOK JACKET

The enigma of Piero : Piero della Francesca : the Baptism, the Arezzo cycle, the Flagellation by Carlo Ginzburg( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Enigma of Piero is a book about painting written by a historian. Carlo Ginzburg painstakingly sifts the evidence to produce a fascinating portrait of Piero's patrons and convincing explanations for the contemporary intrigues resonant in his paintings - in particular The Baptism, The Arezzo Cycle, and the mysterious Flagellation." "Apparently trivial details - a hat, a column, the turn of a hand - lead Ginzburg into the archives to discover remarkable new chains of evidence. Making Ginzburg's impressive argument even more compelling, this new edition includes additional material dealing with the work of Roberto Longhi, the dating of The Arezzo Cycle and the rediscovery of Piero della Francesca in the twentieth century."--Jacket
The Freudian slip : psychoanalysis and textual criticism by Sebastiano Timpanaro( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an iconoclastic work of great verve--with an introductory essay by Perry Anderson--Sebastiano Timpanaro submits the whole field of psychoanalysis to one of its most sustained and serious Marxist critiques. Using textual criticism, Timpanaro reconsiders the most famous cases of the 'slips' analyzed by Freud in The Psychopathology of Everyday Life, and argues that in virtually every case Freud's explanations of them are arbitrary or unnecessary. His book ends with a remarkable interpretation of the cultural and historical destiny of Freud's work within early twentieth-century thought. This edition of Timpanaro's compelling study also includes his essay 'Freud's Roman Phobia', originally published in New Left Review
