Politics of culture and the spirit of critique : dialogues( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 1,254 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( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 811 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

Counter-history of the present : untimely interrogations into globalization, technology, democracy by Gabriel Rockhill( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 236 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 )

37 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in English and held by 186 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 )

3 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

5 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 46 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

4e de couv.: 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 l'œuvre 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

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

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

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
