Philosophy in the present by Alain Badiou( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two controversial thinkers discuss a timeless but nonetheless urgent question: should philosophy interfere in the world? Nothing less than philosophy is at stake because, according to Badiou, philosophy is nothing but interference and commitment and will not be restrained by academic discipline. Philosophy is strange and new, and yet speaks in the name of all - as Badiou shows with his theory of universality. Similarly, Zizek believes that the philosopher must intervene, contrary to all expectations, in the key issues of the time. He can offer no direction, but this only shows that the question has been posed incorrectly: it is valid to change the terms of the debate and settle on philosophy as abnormality and excess. At once an invitation to philosophy and an introduction to the thinking of two of the most topical and controversial philosophers writing today, this concise volume will be of great interest to students and general readers alike. -- Publisher description

Margins of philosophy by Jacques Derrida( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in German and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this densely imbricated volume Derrida pursues his devoted, relentless dismantling of the philosophical tradition, the tradition of Plato, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger -- each dealt with in one or more of the essays. There are essays too on linguistics (Saussure, Benveniste, Austin) and on the nature of metaphor ("White Mythology"), the latter with important implications for literary theory. Derrida is fully in control of a dazzling stylistic register in this book -- a source of true illumination for those prepared to follow his arduous path. Bass is a superb translator and annotator. His notes on the multilingual allusions and puns are a great service."--Alexander Gelley -- Description from (April 11, 2012)
Philosophy and the idea of communism : Alain Badiou in conversation with Peter Engelmann by Alain Badiou( Book )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a well-known text called 'The Communist Hypothesis', first published in 2007, the renowned philosopher Alain Badiou breathed fresh life into the idea of communism as an intellectual representation that provides a critical perspective on existing politics and offers a systemic alternative to capitalism. Now, in the course of this wide-ranging conversation with Peter Engelmann, Alain Badiou explains why he continues to value the idea of communism against the background of current social crises and despite negative historical experiences. From the anticipation of a communism without a state to the problem of the concept of democracy and an analysis of capitalism as a system, the two thinkers discuss the key political issues of our time. Whilst explaining his political philosophy, Badiou also reflects on current socio-political developments such as the turmoil in the Middle East and the situation in China. This compelling dialogue is both a highly topical contribution to the question of how we might organize our societies differently and an accessible introduction to Badiou's philosophical thinking

4 editions published in 2010 in German and Multiple languages and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has been said that the Austrian Cultural Forum, designed by Austrian architect and theorist Raimund Abraham (1933-2010), is the most spectacular modern structure built in New York since the Seagram Building and the Guggenheim Museum. Despite or because of the exceedingly restrictive conditions of the location, Abraham succeeded in producing extraordinary stylistic elements while meeting utilitarian criteria. This publication features contributions on a range of political, historical and aesthetic issues related to the building and its creator

Geschlecht (Heidegger) by Jacques Derrida( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die gegenwärtige Debatte um Heidegger krankt daran, dass es nicht gelingt, den politischen Heidegger mit dem Philosophen, seine praktischen Entscheidungen mit den entscheidenden Figuren seines Denkens zusammenzubringen. Diese beiden Texte Derridas zeigen, warum man Heidegger wieder lesen muss. Und sie zeigen, wie man es nach dem Streit um Heideggers Engagement für den Nationalsozialismus tun muss. Denn es geht darum, über das Schema reiner Zurechnung ("War Heidegger ein Nazi oder nicht?") hinauszukommen, das nichts erklärt. Derrida befragt den heideggerschen Text nach den Bedingungen eines philosophischen Nationalismus. Seit Fichtes Reden an die deutsche Nation ist dieser Nationalismus eine deutsche Tradition, diese Tradition brauchte Heidegger nur zu beerben. Der zweite Text fragt, ob die Geschlechterdifferenz die ontologische Differenz in Frage stellt oder ob sie ihr ohne weiteres unterzuordnen ist. Um die Heimsuchung durch die Radikalität der sexuellen Differenz zu vermeiden, wird sie bei Heidegger ontologisch entschärft, sie wird zur "transzendentalen Zerstreuung"
