The dialectics of seeing : Walter Benjamin and the Arcades project by Susan Buck-Morss( Book )

The origin of negative dialectics : Theodor W. Adorno, Walter Benjamin and the Frankfurt Institute by Susan Buck-Morss( Book )

39 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 706 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
Dreamworld and catastrophe : the passing of mass utopia in East and West by Susan Buck-Morss( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
Hegel, Haiti and Universal history by Susan Buck-Morss( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 422 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
New ways of knowing : the sciences, society, and reconstructive knowledge by Marcus G Raskin( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 395 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

Emily Jacir & Susan Buck-Morss by Emily Jacir( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 65 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

Aesthetic theory by Theodor W Adorno( Book )

13 editions published between 1972 and 2011 in German and Spanish and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The culmination of a lifetime of aesthetic investigation, Aesthetic Theory is Adorno's major work, a defense of modernism that is paradoxical in its defense of illusion. In it, Adorno takes up the problem of art in a day when "it goes without saying that nothing concerning art goes without saying." In the course of his discussion, Adorno revisits such concepts as the sublime, the ugly, and the beautiful, demonstrating that concepts such as these are reservoirs of human experience. These experiences ultimately underlie aesthetics, for in Adorno's formulation "art is the sedimented history of human misery."
