A theory of literary production by Pierre Macherey( Book )

93 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who is more important: the reader, or the writer? Originally published in French in 1966, Pierre Macherey's first and most famous work, "A Theory of Literary Production" dared to challenge perceived wisdom, and quickly established him as a pivotal figure in literary theory. In this provocative work, Macherey puts the focus as much on the reader as the writer, stating that the very act of reading is a form of production in its own right, generating interpretation and meanings which are beyond the control of the author. Part of the birth of a whole new branch of post-structuralist theory, Macherey's work also influenced a new generation of critics among them Jacques Derrida, his contemporary, and Terry Eagleton. His ideas have also led some observers to claim that he announced the death of the author fully two years before Roland Barthes' famous essay
The object of literature by Pierre Macherey( Book )

28 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuing the project of Althusserian theory, Macherey engages in a series of close exegeses of classical texts in French literature and philosophy, from the late eighteenth century down to the 1970s, that explore the historically variable but thematically similar ways in which literary texts represent philosophical topoi in an unmediated manner, Macherey shows the conceptual sophistication - and broad intellectual influence - that literary art has displayed in the modern period
Hegel or Spinoza by Pierre Macherey( Book )

30 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hegel or Spinoza is a surgically precise interrogation of the points of misreading of Spinoza by Hegel. Pierre Macherey explains the necessity of Hegel's misreading in the kernel of thought that is "indigestible" for Hegel, which makes the Spinozist system move in a way that Hegel cannot grasp. In doing so, Macherey exposes the limited and situated truth of Hegel's perspective--which reveals more about Hegel himself than about his object of analysis. Against Hegel's characterization of Spinoza's work as immobile, Macherey offers a lively alternative that upsets the accepted historical progression of philosophical knowledge. He finds in Spinoza an immanent philosophy that is not subordinated to the guarantee of an a priori truth. --- Book Description

8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first English translation of Macherey's philosophical work. Best known for hiswork in literary criticism, Pierre Macherey has, over the past two decades, producted a series of original philosophical works. This first collection of his philosophical writings to be published in English discloses the full range of Macherey's interventions, testifying to his signal status as one of France's leading philosophers. In a Materialst Way ranges over Macherey's writings on philosophy and theory, critiques of the work of major figures in contemporary French thought such as Lacan, Foucoult and Canguilhem, and analyses of the work of Spinoza. It reveals to English-speaking audiences what has long been common knowledge in France: that Pierre Macherey is among the most fertile, imaginative and subtle of contemporary philosophers

10 editions published in 1992 in French and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proust : entre littérature et philosophie by Pierre Macherey( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Proust, écrivain et théoricien de l'art, n'a cessé de réfléchir aux rapports qu'entretiennent philosophie et littérature. Dans cet ouvrage, Pierre Macherey interroge la manière dont on peut faire de la philosophie avec du roman, et quel genre assez inhabituel de philosophie peut émerger sous cette forme. L'exemple de Proust est à cet égard très parlant: si l'intérêt philosophique de son fameux cycle À la recherche du temps perdu est incontestable, la nature de cet intérêt se dérobe aux critères de la philosophie en titre. La recherche de vérité à laquelle se livre Proust est inséparable des méandres que parcourt l'intelligence stylistique qui définit son travail d'écrivain; un écrivain qui pense en écrivant, et qui ne pense qu'en écrivant. Au cours de cette expérience philosophique parfaitement originale, littérature et philosophie, sans se confondre, communiquent et se stimulent réciproquement. Pierre Macherey suit ici pas à pas, et comme à l'aveugle, les tours et détours d'une réflexion qui fait texte en se romançant, et s'actualise à travers cet exercice que Proust a poussé à un degré de sophistication rarement égalé."--Page 4 of cover

6 editions published in 1999 in French and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ces textes, dont la rédaction s'est étalée sur plus de trente ans, sont reliés par une conception de la philosophie en tant que prise de position pratique effectuée dans une conjoncture déterminée. Cette conception de la philosophie en tant qu'activité ou "pratique théorique" est celle qu'Althusser avait entrepris d'élaborer dès 1967 dans le cadre d'un Cours de philosophie pour scientifiques

Reading Capital by Louis Althusser( Book )

21 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zusammen mit der Sammlung von Louis Althussers philosophischen Interventionen unter dem Titel Für Marx markierte dieses Buch einen radikalen Neubeginn der Debatte über den Marxismus und ihre Streitpunkte: Worin liegt eigentlich der wissenschaftliche Durchbruch, den Marx in seiner "Kritik der politischen Ökonomie" auf dem Felde der Wissenschaften von Geschichte und Gesellschaft vollzogen hat? Und: In welchem Sinne liefert dieser wissenschaftliche Durchbruch unverzichtbare Grundlagen für eine Politik der Überwindung der Herrschaft der kapitalistischen Produktionsweisen in unseren gegenwärtigen Gesellschaften? Sowie schließlich: Welchen Beitrag kann ein kritisches Philosophieren dazu leisten, dass sich wirklich wissenschaftliche Forschung und revolutionäre Politik als solche entwickeln und gegen alle Störungen durch herrschende Ideologien behaupten können? - Um eben diese Fragen zu bearbeiten und neu zu beantworten, ist heute immer noch das Kapital zu lesen - und dieses Buch hilft heute erst recht dabei, die Kapital-Lektüre auf diese Fragen zu beziehen.

La parole universitaire by Pierre Macherey( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C'est sous un angle inhabituel que ce livre interroge l'Université : il ne s'agit pas de doctes recommandations sur ce qu'elle devrait être pour surmonter ses difficultés actuelles, mais d'une lecture croisée de discours tenus par des penseurs, les uns universitaires et les autres pas. Certains sont des philosophes - Kant, Hegel, Heidegger - qui ont entrepris, souvent dans des discours solennels, de fixer l'essence de l'Université, d'en dégager les finalités profondes. D'autres, qui représentent des << sciences humaines >> comme la psychanalyse (Lacan) ou la sociologie (Bourdieu et Passeron), ont cherché à faire la théorie de la réalité universitaire, en portant sur elle un regard objectif et pour une grande part désenchanté. D'autres enfin sont des écrivains (François Rabelais, Thomas Hardy, Hermann Hesse, Vladimir Nabokov) qui ont abordé l'Université par le biais de la fiction, ce qui leur a permis d'en révéler certaines dérives, perceptibles seulement d'un point de vue extérieur. Ce livre balise les étapes d'un parcours, enclenche la dynamique d'une prise de distance, indispensable pour y voir plus clair sur la nature de cette << chose >> aujourd'hui en péril qu'est l'Université
