Politics of culture and the spirit of critique : dialogues by Alfredo Gómez-Muller( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 1,520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book of tightly woven dialogues engages prominent thinkers in a discussion about the role of culture-broadly construed-in contemporary society and politics. Faced with the conceptual inflation of the notion of 'culture, ' which now imposes itself as an indispensable issue in contemporary moral and political debates, these dynamic exchanges seek to rethink culture and critique beyond the schematic models that have often predominated, such as the opposition between "mainstream multiculturalism" and the "clash of civilizations." Prefaced by an introduction relating current cultural debates to the critical theory tradition, this book examines the politics of culture and the spirit of critique from three different vantage points. To begin, Gabriel Rockhill and Alfredo Gomez-Muller provide a stage-setting dialogue, followed by discussions with two major representatives of contemporary critical theory: Seyla Benhabib and Nancy Fraser
Radical history & the politics of art by Gabriel Rockhill( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book opens new space for rethinking the relationship between art and politics. Rather than understanding the two spheres as separated by an insurmountable divide or linked by a privileged bridge, Rockhill demonstrates that art and politics are not fixed entities with a singular relation but rather dynamically negotiated, sociohistorical practices with shifting and imprecise borders. This book proposes a significant departure from extant debates on what is commonly called art and politics, and the result is an impressive foray into the force field of history, in which cultural practices are meticulously analyzed in their social and temporal dynamism without assuming a conceptual unity behind them. Rockhill thereby develops an alternative logic of history and historical change, as well as a novel account of social practices and a multidimensional theory of agency. Engaging with a diverse array of intellectual, artistic, and political constellations, this tour de force diligently maps the various interactions between different dimensions of aesthetic and political practices as they intertwine and sometimes merge in precise fields of struggle
Jacques Rancière : history, politics, aesthetics by Gabriel Rockhill( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2019 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interventions in contemporary thought : history, politics, aesthetics by Gabriel Rockhill( )

15 editions published between 2016 and 2022 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critical intervention in contemporary theoretical debates on history, politics and aesthetics. With the aim of rethinking the state and stakes of contemporary theory, Gabriel Rockhill critically works through some of the most important recent philosophical writings on the intertwined topics of history, politics and art. He offers guidance to some of the complex debates in these areas, as well as a commanding overview of the key issues and some of the central figures, including Foucault, Derrida, Castoriadis, Badiou and Ranci÷re. By resituating theoretical work in a broader force field of culture and power, he advances an innovative and nuanced description of recent intellectual developments that calls into question the now standard but rather stereotypical accounts of prominent thinkers and philosophical movements. Far from hiding behind the towering figures with whom he engages, Rockhill stakes out positions in relationship to them and formulates precise arguments in favour of a novel understanding of the historical relationship between art and politics, arguing that there is a need for a deep shift in the tectonic plates that undergird these debates. The result is an invitation not only to retool extant methodological paradigms but also to ultimately reinvent the practice of theory itself

Postscript on insignificance -- Dialogues
Counter-history of the present : untimely interrogations into globalization, technology, democracy by Gabriel Rockhill( )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gabriel Rockhill contests, dismantles, and displaces one of the most widespread understandings of the contemporary world: that we are all living in a democratized and globalized era intimately connected by a single, overarching economic and technological network. Noting how such a narrative fails to account for the experiences of the billions of people who lack economic security, digital access, and real political power, Rockhill interrogates the ways in which this grand narrative has emerged in the same historical, economic, and cultural context as the fervid expansion of neoliberalism. He also critiques the concurrent valorization of democracy, which is often used to justify U.S. military interventions on the behalf of capital. Developing an alternative account of the current conjuncture that acknowledges the plurality of lived experiences around the globe and in different social strata, he shifts the foundations upon which debates about the contemporary world can be staged. Rockhill's counter-history thereby offers a new grammar for historical narratives, creating space for the articulation of futures no longer engulfed in the perpetuation of the present
The politics of aesthetics : the distribution of the sensible by Jacques Rancière( Book )

48 editions published between 2004 and 2021 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Politics of Aesthetics rethinks the relationship between art and politics, reclaiming 'aesthetics' from the narrow confines it is often reduced to. Jacques Rancière reveals its intrinsic link to politics by analysing what they both have in common: the delimitation of the visible and the invisible, the audible and the inaudible, the thinkable and the unthinkable, the possible and the impossible. Presented as a set of inter-linked interviews, The Politics of Aesthetics provides the most comprehensive introduction to Rancière's work to date, ranging across the history of art and politics from the Greek polis to the aesthetic revolution of the modern age. Available now in the Bloomsbury Classics series 10 years after its original publication, The Politics of Aesthetics includes an afterword by Slavoj Žižek, an interview for the English edition, a glossary of technical terms and an extensive bibliography
Technologies de contrôle dans la mondialisation enjeux politiques, éthiques et esthétiques by Pierre-Antoine Chardel( Book )

Logique de l'histoire : pour une analytique des pratiques philosophiques by Gabriel Rockhill( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosopher serait faire de l'histoire de la philosophie à la lecture et l'interprétation des textes canoniques des grands penseurs de la tradition européenne en suivant l'enchaînement des idées depuis les Grecs anciens. Par cette pratique devenue tellement naturelle la philosophie semble en avoir oublié sa propre historicité. D'où la nécessité de la mettre en évidence en examinant de près ses multiples conséquences. Ce livre propose en même temps une logique historique et herméneutique alternative s'inscrivant en faux contre la philosophie contemporaine. Ne visant pourtant pas à entériner la réduction de la philosophie à une pratique historique et herméneutique, il s'agit avant tout de mettre en lumière la contingence d'une telle détermination afin de déplacer les marges de manœuvre imposées aux penseurs d'aujourd'hui et faire de la place à d'autres pratiques théoriques. Le résultat, c'est une investigation méthodologique dont les enjeux et les conséquences dépassent de loin les limites de la philosophie
Critique et subversion dans la pensée contemporaine américaine : dialogues by Alfredo Gómez-Muller( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au XIXe siècle et jusqu'aux années 70 du XXe, les hérauts de la subversion morale et de la critique sociale étaient, en Amérique du Nord, l'apanage des poètes, des écrivains, des musiciens et des peintres. Ce sont maintenant les professeurs des meilleures universités qui ont pris cette place. Les auteurs de ces entretiens, très influencés par l'Ecole de Francfort et [oeuvre de Michel Foucault partagent de nombreux points communs : la question du " genre ", la critique sociale radicale et une interrogation exigeante sur le multiculturalisme. Sous la forme de dialogues, Nancy Fraser, Judith Butler, Cornel West, Seyla Benhabib, Immanuel Wallerstein, Michael Sandel et Will Kymlicka exposent un des grands débats du monde anglophone qui est en train de s'installer en France
Contre-histoire du temps présent : interrogations intempestives sur la mondialisation, la technologie, la démocratie by Gabriel Rockhill( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il est communément admis que nous vivrions une ère mondiale où un réseau économique et technologique relie toujours davantage les quatre coins du globe et où la démocratie s'impose comme la condition nécessaire de la vie politique. Pourtant, cette image d'un âge global aussi avancé que civilisé est loin d'aller de soi où d'être anodine. Enracinée dans un champ de force sociopolitiques et économiques, elle sert souvent de véhicule clandestin pour des projets redoutables. Une telle vision du temps présent, ainsi que l'imaginaire historique et politique qui l'a produite, demandent à être interrogés, en particulier les concepts clés de mondialisation, technologie et démocratie. Et ceci non point pour présenter une description alternative de notre époque à partir des mêmes phénomènes de base mais pour développer une contre-histoire visant à reconfigurer le possible historique. Tenter d'ouvrir une brèche pour participer à un véritable futur, autre que celui qui s'impose à nous, en nous enfermant dans le destin intransigeant d'un avenir à subir, tel est l'objet de ce livre

Politics of Culture and the Spirit of Critique : Dialogues( )

Faced with the conceptual inflation of the notion of 'culture,' which now imposes itself as an indispensable issue in contemporary moral and political debates, these dynamic exchanges seek to rethink culture and critique beyond the schematic models that have often predominated, such as the opposition between "mainstream multiculturalism" and the "clash of civilizations."

To begin, Gabriel Rockhill and Alfredo Gomez-Muller provide a stage-setting dialogue, followed by discussions with two major representatives of contemporary critical theory: Seyla Benhabib and Nancy Fraser. Working at the horizons of this tradition, Judith Butler, Immanuel Wallerstein, and Cornel West then provide important critical perspectives on cultural politics. The book's concluding section engages with Michael Sandel and Will Kymlicka, who work out of the Rawlsian tradition yet are uniquely concerned with the issue of culture, broadly understood. The epilogue, an interview with Axel Honneth, returns to the core issue of critical theory in cultural politics. Ranging from recent developments and progressive interventions in critical theory to dialogues that incorporate its insights into larger discussions of social and political philosophy, this book sharpens old critical tools while developing new

Mute speech : literature, critical theory, and politics by Jacques Rancière( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques Ranciere has continually unsettled political discourse, particularly through his questioning of aesthetic "distributions of the sensible," which configure the limits of what can be seen and said. Widely recognized as a seminal work in Ranciere's corpus, the translation of which is long overdue, Mute Speech is an intellectual tour de force proposing a new framework for thinking about the history of art and literature. Ranciere argues that our current notion of "literature" is a relatively recent creation, having first appeared in the wake of the French Revolution and with the rise of Romanticism. In its rejection of the system of representational hierarchies that had constituted belles-letters, "literature" is founded upon a radical equivalence in which all things are possible expressions of the life of a people. With an analysis reaching back to Plato, Aristotle, the German Romantics, Vico, and Cervantes and concluding with brilliant readings of Flaubert, Mallarme, and Proust, Ranciere demonstrates the uncontrollable democratic impulse lying at the heart of literature's still-vital capacity for reinvention."--Publisher description
Logique de l'histoire : la pensée contemporaine aux prises avec le passé by Gabriel Rockhill( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce travail porte sur les dispositifs conceptuels employés par la pensée contemporaine--notamment francophone et anglophone--pour écrire l'histoire de la philosophie. Pour délimiter ce sujet aussi vaste et délicat, il nous a semblé légitime d'organiser notre étude autour d'un ensemble de controverses portant sur trois moments privilégiés de l'histoire philosophique : le commencement, le tournant moderne, l'actualité. En étudiant les communautés intellectuelles engagées dans ces débats, nous nous sommes interrogés sur les transformations subites par la pratique philosophique depuis deux siècles environ, notamment en ce qui concerne son rapport au mot imprimé et à son propre passé. Nous avons repéré au sein de ces mutations, l'émergence d'une logique substantialiste de l'histoire des idées à laquelle nous avons opposé, tout au long de notre étude et toujours dans des analyses circonstancielles, une logique relationnelle des pratiques intellectuelles
