An introduction to the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze by Jean Khalfa( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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

The theology of death by Douglas James Davies( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This book aims to offer some sharply defined schemes of thought in a Christian environment in which death, hell and heaven have almost lost their place. The topic of hope is a key element and the book explores the birth and fostering of hope within Christian traditions." "The first part of the book is grounded in biblical issues and in historical and philosophical theology. It seeks to establish several schemes of death theology related, for example, to early Christianity's Jewish cultural milieu, to belief in Christ's resurrection and to Christology, to issues of millennial belief and to an emergent liturgical practice. The rise of notions of the soul in relation to medieval thought and practice and the place of death in reformation theology are both covered, as is the role of the nineteenth and twentieth century. Finally the rise of biblical theology is considered, especially in the twentieth century. The second part of the book takes up several contemporary models of the theology of death. The first pursues a traditional acceptance of an other-worldly afterlife, the second explores worldly analysis of eternal life as a quality of contemporary existence devoid of any future state. The third develops the worldly model and considers a wider sense of self as a part of an ecological view of the world as a divine creation and explores the meaning of birth-life and death amidst a divine environment."--Jacket
The politics of aesthetics : the distribution of the sensible by Jacques Rancière( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Politics of Aesthetics rethinks the relationship between art and politics outside of the models established by the Marxist tradition, the Frankfurt School, and the more recent contributions made by the post-structuralists. Reclaiming aesthetics from the narrow confines it is often reduced to, Jacques Ranciere reveals its intrinsic link to politics by analyzing 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."

Byzantium and the Crusades by Jonathan Harris( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The first great city the crusaders came to in 1089 was not Jerusalem but Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine empire. Almost as much as Jerusalem itself, Constantinople was the key to the foundation, survival and ultimate eclipse of the crusading kingdom. The Byzantines had developed an ideology over seven hundred years which placed Constantinople rather than Rome or Jerusalem at the center of the world. The attitudes of its rulers reflected this priority, and led to tensions with the crusaders over military and diplomatic strategy. At the same time, the riches and sophistication of the great city made a lasting impression on the crusaders, even though they found Byzantine society alien and remote. In the end, the lure of the city's wealth was irresistibly fatal to the claims of Christian unity. In 1204 the Fourth Crusade, under Enrico Dandolo, captured and sacked Constantinople, signaling the effective end of almost a thousand years of Byzantine dominance in the east

Here he further develops his general theory of interpretation in relation to his own philosophical background and influences: Hegel, Husserl, Gadamer and Weber. This is a hugely important work from a key figure in contemporary philosophy that will be of interest to those starting out in the field of hermeneutics, as well as those already familiar with Ricoeur's work."The Continuum Impacts" are seminal works by the finest minds in contemporary thought, including Adorno, Badiou, Derrida, Heidegger and Deleuze. They are works of such power that they changed the philosophical and cultural landscape when they were first published and continue to resonate today.
