Gilles Deleuze's Logic of sense : a critical introduction and guide by James Williams( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers the first critical study of The Logic of Sense, Gilles Deleuze's most important work on language and ethics, as well as the main source for his vital philosophy of the event. Deleuze's philosophy has always promised a revolution in ethical theories and in our understanding of the relation between language, thought and action. This book develops a critical reading of Deleuze's work in order to convey the potential and risks of his new approaches to questions of how to live an intense life in response to the excitement and danger of events. This interpretation covers all aspects of Deleuze's book, including engagements with phenomenology, with analytic philosophy of language, with stoicism, with literary theory and with psychoanalysis. Its aim is to open new debates and develop current ones around Deleuze's work in philosophy, politics, literature, linguistics and sociology."--Jacket
Gilles Deleuze's Difference and repetition : a critical introduction and guide by James Williams( )

30 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a revised, expanded and fully up-to-date critical introduction to Deleuze's most important work of philosophy. This is the first critical introduction to "Difference and Repetition" (first published in 1968): Gilles Deleuze's most important work of philosophy and one of the most significant texts of contemporary philosophy. By critically analysing of Deleuze's methods, principles and arguments, James Williams helps readers to engage with the revolutionary core of Deleuze's philosophy and take up positions for or against its most innovative and controversial ideas. The book will also help to extend Deleuze's work to philosophers working in the analytic tradition. New for this edition: significant new material on intensity, Deleuze and science and questions of action after Difference and Repetition, all of which feed into current debates about how Deleuzian philosophy relates to politics and ethics; guides students through the key debates and oppositions by engaging with latest interpretations of Deleuze by Levi Bryant, Anna Sauvagnargues, Daniel W. Smith, Henry Somers-Hall and Miguel de Beistegui; and, a final critical section introduces and gives brief descriptions of new works on Deleuze, contrasting the Williams reading with others. -- Description from http://www.booktopia.com.au (July 23, 2014)

Gilles Deleuze's philosophy of time : a critical introduction and guide by James Williams( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout his career, Deleuze developed a series of original philosophies of time and applied them successfully to many different fields. Now James Williams presents Deleuze's philosophy of time as the central concept that connects his philosophy as a whole. Through this conceptual approach, the book covers all the main periods of Deleuze's philosophy: the early studies of Hume, Nietzsche, Kant, Bergson and Spinoza, the two great philosophical works, Difference and Repetition and Logic of Sense, the Capitalism and Schizophrenia works with Guattari, and the late influential studies of literature, film and painting. The result is an important reading of Deleuze and the first full interpretation of his philosophy of time

Lyotard : towards a postmodern philosophy by James Williams( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean-Francois Lyotard was one of the most influential European thinkers in recent decades. He was a leading participant in debates about post-modernism and the decline of Marxism, and he made important contributions to ethics, aesthetics and political philosophy. In this authoritative introduction, Williams tracks the development of Lyotard's thought from his early writings on the libidinal economy to his more recent work on the post-modern condition. Williams argues that despite the wide-ranging character of Lyotard's writings, they are animated by a long-standing concern to develop a

A process philosophy of signs by James Williams( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is a sign? We usually think that it is a fixed relation; for instance, a red light signifies 'Stop'. This book argues that signs are actually processes, making them an occasion for creative responses rather than automatic and legitimate actions. A red light triggers a process: should I stop? James Williams develops this new process philosophy of signs through a formal model, in contrast to earlier structuralist definitions. He draws on the philosophies of Deleuze and Whitehead, earlier work on the sign in biology by Jakob von Uexkull and connects critically to contemporary work on process in the philosophy of biology by John Dupre. A series of practical cases in art, biology, politics, technology, nature and science demonstrate that this formal model for the sign will have wide applications not only for academic subjects but within social and political critique
Postanalytic and metacontinental : crossing philosophical divides by Ed Mares( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arctic in Global Affairs examines the forces that are transforming the Arctic region and related issues of governance, resource development, trade, environmental policies, and international cooperation. Globalization and climate change are having a great impact on the physical and political properties the region. From changes at the local community level to possible new trade routes, the political constitution of the Arctic as a region in global politics is undergoing a major shift. Since the Arctic is largely considered as terra nullius, much of the debates center on who owns the Arctic and who should decide. It is not yet clear whether it will become a region of peace and cooperation or one of increased competition and conflict. The Arctic in Global Affairs is a comprehensive text that will appeal to anyone researching Arctic politics and international politics. It provides a unique case study to help understand the nature of global change and promote new concepts in international relations theory

For René Girard : essays in friendship and in truth by Sandor Goodhart( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his explorations of the relations between the sacred and violence, René Girard has hit upon the origin of culture - the way culture began, the way it continues to organize itself. The way communities of human beings structure themselves in a manner that is different from that of other species on the planet. Like Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Émile Durkheim, Martin Buber, or others who have changed the way we think in the humanities or in the human sciences, Girard has put forth a set of ideas that have altered our perceptions of the world in which we function. We will n
