Michel de Certeau : cultural theorist by Ian Buchanan( )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 1,652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michel de Certeau is often considered to be the pre-eminent theorist of everyday life. This book provides an unrivalled critical introduction to his work and influence. It examines his key ideas and asks how should we try to understand him in relation to theories of modern culture and society?" "Ian Buchanan demonstrates the influence of Lacan, Merleau-Ponty and Greimas on the work of de Certeau. The theoretical underpinnings of de Certeau's crucial notions of 'strategy', 'tactics', 'place' and 'space' are clearly described. The book argues that de Certeau died before developing the full importance of his work for the study of culture, and, convincingly, it tries to complete or imagine the directions that his work would have taken, had he lived." "This book will be of major interest to students of sociology and cultural studies."--Jacket

A Deleuzian century?( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michel Foucault's suggestion that this century would become known as "Deleuzian" was considered by Gilles Deleuze himself to be a joke "meant to make people who like us laugh, and make everyone else livid." Whether serious or not, Foucault's prediction has had enough of an impact to raise concern about the potential "deification" of this enormously influential French philosopher. Seeking to counter such tendencies toward hagiography--not unknown, particularly since Deleuze's death--Ian Buchanan has assembled a collection of essays that constitute a critical and focused engagement with Deleuze and his work

Deleuze and the schizoanalysis of visual art by Ian Buchanan( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Schizoanalysis is Deleuze and Guattari's fusion of psychoanalytic-inspired theories of the self, the libido and desire with Marx-inspired theories of the economy, history and society. Schizoanalysis holds that art's function is both political and aesthetic - it changes perception. If one cannot change perception, then, one cannot change anything politically. This is why Deleuze and Guattari always insist that the artists operate at the level of the real (not the imaginary or the symbolic). Ultimately, they argue, there is no necessary distinction to be made between aesthetics and politics. One is simply the flipside of the other because both concern the formation and transformation of social and cultural norms. Deleuze and the Schizoanalysis of Visual Art explores how every artist, good or bad, contributes to the structure and nature of society because their work either reinforces social norms, or challenges them. On this view of things, we are all artists, we all have the potential to exercise what might be called a 'aesthetico-political function' and change the world around us; or, just as easily, we can dwell like assassins, and not only let the status quo endure but fight to preserve it as though it were freedom itself"--
Deleuze and the schizoanalysis of literature( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1972, the French theorists Deleuze and Guattari unleashed their collaborative project-which they termed schizoanalysis-upon the world. Today, few disciplines in the humanities and social sciences have been left untouched by its influence. Through a series of groundbreaking applications of Deleuze and Guattari's work to a diverse range of literary contexts, from Shakespeare to science fiction, this collection demonstrates how schizoanalysis has transformed and is transforming literary scholarship. Intended for upper-level undergraduates, postgraduates and scholars with an interest in continental philosophy, literary theory and critical and cultural theory, Deleuze and the Schizoanalysis of Literature is a cutting edge volume, featuring some of the most original voices in the field, setting the agenda for future research"-- Back cover
