Dreamworld and catastrophe the passing of mass utopia in East and West by Susan Buck-Morss ( )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers a reevaluation of the twentieth century. It argues that the disintegration of Soviet socialism marked the abandonment of the idea of mass utopia by both sides in the Cold War. One of the casualties of the end of that war was the shattering of dreamworlds of industrialization, mass culture, and historical progress that gave meaning to collective social life in East and West. Dreamworld and Catastrophe is an experiment in visual culture, using images as philosophy, presenting, literally, a way of seeing the past. Its pictorial narrative rescues historical data that with the end of the Cold War are threatened with oblivion, and challenges common conceptions of what the century was about. The book is written for the general public but will be of special interest to critical theorists, historians, philosophers, and artists."--Jacket

Thinking past terror : Islamism and critical theory on the left by Susan Buck-Morss ( Book )
15 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Thinking Past Terror' presents the empowering idea of a global counter-culture as a very real possibility. If the language of a global, radically cosmopolitan Left is not presumed but its attainment struggled for, if the Leftist project is itself this struggle, then democracy defines its very core
Hegel, Haiti and Universal history by Susan Buck-Morss ( Book )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this path-breaking work, Susan Buck-Morss draws new connections between history, inequality, social conflict, and human emancipation. Hegel, Haiti, and Universal History offers a fundamental reinterpretation of Hegel's master-slave dialectic and points to a way forward to free critical theoretical practice from the prison-house of its own debates. Historicizing the thought of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and the actions taken in the Haitian Revolution, Buck-Morss examines the startling connections between the two and challenges us to widen the boundaries of our historical imagination. She finds that it is in the discontinuities of historical flow, the edges of human experience, and the unexpected linkages between cultures that the possibility to transcend limits is discovered. It is these flashes of clarity that open the potential for understanding in spite of cultural differences. What Buck-Morss proposes amounts to a "new humanism," one that goes beyond the usual ideological implications of such a phrase to embrace a radical neutrality that insists on the permeability of the space between opposing sides and as it reaches for a common humanity.--publisher description

Emily Jacir & Susan Buck-Morss by Emily Jacir ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This notebook combines photographs by Palestinian artist Emily Jacir with a text by political philosopher Susan Buck-Morss, who teaches at the City University of New York, written in response to the images and to conversations with the artist. Jacir's photographs depict the former Benedictine monastery of Breitenau, near Kassel. A prison camp in the Nazi era, it became a girl's reformatory after World War II. These images as well as other photographs taken in Kassel are accompanied by selections from the artist's diary entries, which investigate questions around the histories of the represented sites. Recalling Walter Benjamin's reading of Paul Klee's Angelus Novus, Buck-Morss' textual response unravels how truth and collective memory are established and how the inextricable relation between knowledge and power leads to the selection of what is archived and remembered."--Publisher's website

Teoria estética by Theodor W Adorno ( Book )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in Spanish and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'ultimo libro, postumo, di Adorno è senz'altro l'opera più concettualmente aspra del filosofo francofortese. L'asprezza deriva dal compito che l'autore si è visto assegnare dal proprio oggetto: pensare l'opera d'arte dall'interno spingendola al concetto pur sapendo che essa è qualcosa di altro dal concetto. Pensarla senza cedere alle facili sirene dell'empatia e del vissuto; non in un'astratta essenza, bensì nella complessa fenomenicità delle sue manifestazioni storiche. Pensare l'opera d'arte, dunque, nella sua appartenenza al mondo delle merci, ma fino in fondo, ossia come una mercé assoluta che nega se stessa, non facile asilo di una interiorità e di una soggettività in via di sparizione, bensì "cosa" che si rifiuta alla reificazione. Pensare il negativo che si mostra come il vero e proprio interno dell'opera d'arte contemporanea, senza consegnarlo ad un'ontologia edificante, ma cogliendovi piuttosto l'attestazione oggettiva che il circolo dell'effettualità non è perfetto e chiuso in se stesso
Origen de la dialéctica negativa : Theodor W. Adorno, Walter Benjamin y el Instituto de Frankfurt by Susan Buck-Morss ( Book )
9 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A treinta años de su primera edición en español, este libro ya es un clásico de la teoría y el pensamiento intelectual, así como una referencia ineludible en los debates en torno a la escuela de Frankfurt. En tiempos de la Alemania de la Social Democracia y de levantamientos estudiantiles, Susan Buck-Morss se propuso rescatar la figura de Adorno y releer la tradición filosófica de la teoría crítica desde sus orígenes históricos. Así, analiza el pensamiento de Adorno, su formación y el desarrollo de lo que denominó "dialéctica negativa", pero también su deuda para con Walter Benjamin, con quien compartió una amistad intelectual y muchas afinidades pero también entabló un extenso debate teórico. ¿Cómo la temprana filosofía no marxista de Benjamin proporciona la clave para el método dialéctico, materialista, de Adorno?, ésta es una de las preguntas que trata de responder Buck-Morss, quien ve en Adorno una figura central dentro de la revisión del marxismo del siglo XX." --Contratapa
