Michel Foucault by Didier Eribon( Book )

70 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michel Foucault (15 October 1926 - 25 June 1984) was a French philosopher, social theorist, historian of ideas, and literary critic. His philosophical theories addressed what power is and how it works, the manner in which it controls knowledge and vice versa, and how it is used as a form of social control. Foucault is best known for his critical studies of social institutions, most notably psychiatry, social anthropology of medicine, the human sciences, the prison system, and the history of human sexuality. His writings on power, knowledge, and discourse have been widely influential in academic circles

Looking for answers : conversations on art and science by E. H Gombrich( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"People know me as the author of The Story of Art who have never heard of me as a scholar. But many of my colleagues have never read the book. They may have read my papers on Poussin or Leonardo, but not that. It is a curious double life." Sir Ernst Gombrich is one of the very few men able to lead such a double life, as familiar to the general public as to academicians. Recently the French intellectual Didier Eribon engaged in a series of probing conversations with Gombrich, seeking to discover how his mind and attitudes had been formed during his early years in Vienna and how they developed after he emigrated to England in 1939. There, Gombrich wrote The Story of Art, his acclaimed introductory art survey, and became director of the Warburg Institute in London. The result of the dialogue between these two men is found in this fascinating and thought-provoking volume. Gombrich tells of reading, examining, pondering and talking to numerous historians, psychologists, artists, and philosophers - among them Erwin Panofsky, Karl Popper, Oskar Kokoschka, and Konrad Lorenz - about subjects ranging from art history to biology and zoology. The reader observes one of our century's most acute minds as he informally brings together all the themes that have preoccupied him for over sixty years - the "meaning" of paintings especially those of the Renaissance; the relation between representational art and perception; and the way in which our responses are conditioned by conventions, history, social pressures, and changes of taste. As undogmatic, skeptical, and wide-ranging as ever, Gombrich not only provides a brilliant account of his life's work but also makes us think anew about fundamental issues, provoking as many questions as he answers

Returning to Reims by Didier Eribon( Book )

On thinking the matter through, it doesn't seem exaggerated to assert that my coming out of the sexual closet, my desire to assume and assert my homosexuality, coincided within my personal trajectory with my shutting myself up inside what I might call a class closet. -- from Returning to Reims After his father dies, Didier Eribon returns to his hometown of Reims and rediscovers the working-class world he had left behind thirty years earlier. For years, Eribon had thought of his father largely in terms of the latter's intolerable homophobia. Yet his father's death provokes new reflection on Eribon's part about how multiple processes of domination intersect in a given life and in a given culture. Eribon sets out to investigate his past, the history of his family, and the trajectory of his own life. His story weaves together a set of remarkable reflections on the class system in France, on the role of the educational system in class identity, on the way both class and sexual identities are formed, and on the recent history of French politics, including the shifting voting patterns of the working classes -- reflected by Eribon's own family, which changed its allegiance from the Communist Party to the National Front. Returning to Reims is a remarkable book of sociological inquiry and critical theory, of interest to anyone concerned with the direction of leftist politics in the contemporary world, and to anyone who has ever experienced how sexual identity can clash with other parts of one's identity. A huge success in France since its initial publication in 2009, Returning to Reims received enthusiastic reviews in Le Monde, Liberation, L'Express, Les Inrockuptibles, and elsewhere

Gesellschaft als Urteil : Klassen, Identitäten, Wege by Didier Eribon( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in German and French and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Didier Eribons Rückkehr nach Reims gilt bereits heute als Klassiker der Zeitdiagnose. In seinem neuen Buch greift Eribon viele Themen des Vorgängers wieder auf und vertieft seine Überlegungen zu zentralen Fragen. Die Gesellschaft, so der französische Soziologe im Anschluss an Pierre Bourdieu, weist uns Plätze zu, sie spricht Urteile aus, denen wir uns nicht entziehen können, sie errichtet Grenzen und bringt Individuen und Gruppen in eine hierarchische Ordnung. Die Aufgabe des kritischen Denkens besteht darin, diese Herrschaftsmechanismen ans Licht zu bringen. Zu diesem Zweck unternimmt Eribon den Versuch, die Analyse der Klassenverhältnisse sowie der Rolle zentraler Institutionen wie des Bildungssystems auf eine neue Grundlage zu stellen. Dabei widmet er sich auch Autorinnen und Autoren wie Simone de Beauvoir, Annie Ernaux, Assia Djebar und Jean-Paul Sartre sowie ihrem Einfluss auf seinen intellektuellen Werdegang. Nur indem wir uns den Determinismen stellen, die unser Leben regieren, können wir einer wahrhaft emanzipatorischen Politik den Weg bereiten
