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

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 173 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( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pavel Lembersky:Rockhill's ambitious and erudite Radical History and the Politics of Art covers a sizable and variegated terrain. One welcomes [an] ambitious, iconoclastic work like Gabriel Rockhill's Radical History and the Politics of Art. Rockhill's book is a polemic against the various theoretical presuppositions and postures, which fatally misconstrue the relevant factors for assessing the actual agency of aesthetic practices. It is also an assertive defence of the 'politicity' of these practices.... [His] book is important because it gives exemplary attention to the factors that a competent approach to this area needs to consider. More than this, Rockhill shows that obscurity is the appropriate fate for undisciplined conceptual speculation. Ádám Takács, Eötvös Loránd University Budapest:We are living in a period when in many fields of humanities history is taken for granted more often than it is taken seriously. Radical History and the Politics of Art thoroughly challenges this attitude by demonstrating the subversive explanatory power of historical analysis. By considering art and politics as entirely immanent in sociohistorical practices, Rockhill argues for their multiform relationship as displayed in various temporal, geographical, and social configurations. Thus, he integrates the disciplinary priorities of a theoretician of art into a style of discourse that offers a powerful philosophical way of reading history. Radical History and the Politics of Art is elegantly written, informative, and never less than provocative. The result is a radical voice long unheard in the field of theoretical discourse on
The politics of aesthetics : the distribution of the sensible by Jacques Rancière( Book )

29 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 134 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 fr

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

6 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 40 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
Postscript on insignificance : dialogues with Cornelius Castoriadis by Cornelius Castoriadis( Book )

Cornelius Castoriadis (1922-1997) was a philosopher, social critic, political activist, practicing psychoanalyst and professional economist. His work is widely recognized as one of the most singular and important contributions to twentieth-century thought. In this collection of interviews, Castoriadis discusses some of his most important ideas with leading figures in the disciplines that play such a crucial part in his philosophical work: poetry, psychoanalysis, biology and mathematics. Available in English for the first time, these interviews provide a concise and accessible introduction to h

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

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout his career, shaped by a notable collaboration with Louis Althusser, Jacques Rancière has continually unsettled political discourse, particularly by examining its relationship to aesthetics. Like Michel Foucault, he broke with his many of his predecessors to upend dominant twentieth-century historical narratives and critical theories. Often overlooked in the canon of his works, Mute Speech contains the critical seeds of Rancière's most provocative assertions, challenging the intellectual orthodoxy that had come to define the nature of art and representation. Arguing that
Logique de l'histoire : la pensée contemporaine aux prises avec le passé by Gabriel Rockhill( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study focuses on the conceptual constructs used in contemporary theory--notably in the French- and English-speaking worlds--to write the history of philosophy. In order to delimit such a vast and delicate subject, our research was organized around a set of controversies concerning three privileged moments in philosophic history: the beginning, the modern turn, and the present. In studying the intellectual communities engaged in these debates, we raised questions concerning the transformations undergone by the philosophic practice over approximately the last two centuries, particularly concerning its relationship to the printed word and its own past. We located within these mutations the emergence of a substantialist logic of the history of ideas that we countered throughout our study, and always in circumstantial analyses, with a relational logic of intellectual practices
