History of madness by Michel Foucault( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 1,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenging entrenched views of madness and reason, History of Madness is one of the classics of 20th century thought. It is Foucaultʼs first major work, written in a dazzling and sometimes enigmatic literary style. It also introduces many of the inspiring and radical themes that he was to write about throughout his life, above all the nature of power and social exclusion. History of Madness begins in the Middle Ages with vivid descriptions of the exclusion and confinement of lepers. Why Foucault asks, when the leper houses were emptied at the end of the Middle Ages, were they turned into places of confinement for the mad? Why, within the space of several months in 1656, was one out of every hundred people in Paris confined? Foucaultʼs bold and controversial answer is that throughout modern history, madness has meant isolation, repression and exclusion. Even the Enlightenment, which attempted to educate and include the mad, ended up imprisoning them in a moral world. As Foucault famously declared to a reporter from Le Monde in 1961, ʺMadness exists only in society. It does not exist outside the forms of sensibility that isolate it, and the form of repulsion that expel it or capture it.ʺ Shifting brilliantly from Descartes and early Enlightenment thought to the founding of the Hopital General in Paris and the work of philanthropists and early psychiatrists such as Philippe Pinel and Samuel Tuke, Foucault focuses throughout not only on the philosophical and cultural values attached to the mad. He also urges us to recognize the creative forces that madness represents, drawing on examples from Goya, Nietzsche, Van Gogh and Artaud. History of Madness is an inspiring and classic work that challenges up to understand madness, reason and power and the forces that shape them. Also includes information on alienation, animal spirits, asylums, Hieronymus Bosch, brain, burning at the stake, Christ and symbolism, classical age, confinement, convulsions, crime, delirium, dementia, dreams, alienation and exclusion, fear, God, hallucinations, hospitals, houses of confinement, houses of correction, hysteria, the insane, lunatics, mania, melancholy, mind, morality, positivism, prisons, poverty, punishment, the Renaissance, the French Revolution, sin, soul, suicide, symbolism, treatments, vapours, venereal disease, water, wisdom, witchcraft, women, work, workhouses, etc
An introduction to the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze by Jean Khalfa( )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 1,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilles Deleuze has been labelled the "post-x" thinker: post-structuralist, post-modern, post-spinozist, post-Nietzschean, and even post-utopian. This book explodes such categorizations and places Deleuze and Deleuzian method at the heart of contemporary thought. Whether analyzing the work of key philosophers, or key concepts such as time, difference and subjectivity, or the nature of creation (film, painting, literature), Deleuze's concern is always the same. From under the layers of history, criticism and interpretation, he aims to reveal the problem itself in its own life, as it develops in a particular thought or activity. This book focuses on the key processes and concepts essential to the understanding of the totality of the work, setting these within their intellectual background and context. It is designed for students across the humanities and social sciences

Alienation and freedom by Frantz Fanon( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and French and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alienation and Freedom collects together previously unpublished works comprising around half of his entire output - which were previously inaccessible or thought to be lost. This book introduces audiences to a new Fanon, a more personal Fanon and one whose literary and psychiatric works, in particular, take centre stage. These writings provide new depth and complexity to our understanding of Fanon's entire oeuvre revealing more of his powerful thinking about identity, race and activism which remain remarkably prescient. Shedding new light on the work of a major 20th-century philosopher, this disruptive and moving work will shape how we look at the world." --Jacket flap

Poetics of the Antilles : poetry, history and philosophy in the writings of Perse, Césaire, Fanon and Glissant by Jean Khalfa( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays collected in this volume study the poetry and thought of four major Francophone Caribbean writers: Saint-John Perse, Aimé Césaire, Frantz Fanon and Édouard Glissant. In a context where identity was a question, an original conception of subjectivity appeared, as the end point rather than the origin of a process which was inseparably poetic and political. It entailed an aesthetics of dispersion or errance, rather than belonging. This volume thus questions the traditional teleological narrative of negritude as {u2018}renaissance{u2019} or {u2018}awakening{u2019}. A careful look at the birth of different negritude movements shows the complexity of this history and explains Fanon{u2019}s philosophical and political critique of the notion. These writers{u2019} astonishingly rich production rests on original aesthetic ideas and philosophical reflections which the vagaries of history and displacement, and their comparison with major metropolitan literary movements, had masked. Fanon{u2019}s thought is at the heart of the book, but this volume also traces the important debates these authors had with the major French thinkers of their time, notably Bergson, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty and Deleuze. --

Oeuvres by Frantz Fanon( Book )

in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frantz Fanon, born in Martinique in 1925, died in Washington in 1961, psychiatrist and anti-colonial activist, left a work that, half a century later, retains an astonishing topicality and is increasingly spread throughout the world. Chief medical officer at the psychiatric hospital of Blida (Algeria) from 1953 onwards, he is confronted with the effects of the situation of "systematic dehumanization" of the "natives". This led him very quickly to join the struggle of the National Liberation Front which engaged in November 1954 the "war of liberation" of Algeria. Two years later, he resigned from his post and joined the FLN in Tunis, where he collaborated with the newspaper El Moudjahid , before being carried away, on 6 December 1961, by leukemia at the age of thirty-six. His lightning trajectory is marked by the publication of three major books: Black Skin, White Masks (Seuil, 1952), The An V of the Algerian Revolution (Maspero, 1959), The Damned of the Earth (Maspero, 1961). And in 1964, François Maspero published a collection of some of his political texts, under the title Pour la révolution africaine . It is these four works that compile this volume, supplemented by a preface by the historian Achille Mbembe and an introduction by the philosopher Magali Bessone. The Damned of the Earth (Maspero, 1961). And in 1964, François Maspero published a collection of some of his political texts, under the title Pour la révolution africaine .

L’étonnante diversité des possibilités esthétiques offertes par le livre comme support matériel de la fin du XIXe siècle aux expérimentations les plus contemporaines, est au cœur de la réflexion proposée dans ce livre. La page, le feuillet et le livre, l’écran aussi, débordent le cadre du codex et du livre relié (livre en éventail, leporello, recueil d’affiches, livre dressé, livre sculpté, livre éclaté, livre numérique, etc.), par l’hétérogénéité de leurs matières, de leurs formes et de leurs formats. Ils deviennent des supports actifs dans le processus de conception et de réception de l’œuvre. Observer les processus de composition et de diffusion des œuvres dans leurs singularités matérielles, tel est l’objet de ce livre. Cette recherche engage à prendre la mesure du rôle des différents acteurs dans la conception du livre, non plus seulement l’écrivain et l’artiste mais aussi le typographe, le relieur, l’éditeur ou le galeriste, chaque acteur pouvant lui-même être polyvalent. La porosité des frontières entre les activités, les métiers, engendre naturellement la porosité entre les genres littéraires et artistiques. The heart of the reflection in this book is the diversity of aesthetic possibilities of the book as material support, from the late nineteenth century to contemporary experiments. The page, the sheet and the book go well beyond the codex and the bound book, in the heterogeneity of their materials, forms and formats (fans, leporellos, poster collections, upright books, book sculptures, exploded books, electronic books, etc.): they are active supports in the design and reception process. This book observes the process of composition and distribution of works in their material singularities, including the role of the different stakeholders in the design of the book, not only the writer and the artist but also the typographer, bookbinder, publisher or gallery owner, each playing a multiplicity of roles. Such porous borders between roles and crafts generate porosity between the literary and artistic genres
