A Society Adrift

A Society Adrift
Cornelius Castoriadis, Translated by Helen Arnold, Edited by Enrique Escobar, Myrto Gondicas, and Pascal Vernay
This posthumous collection of interviews and occasional papers is a lively, direct introduction to the thinking of a writer who never abandoned his radically critical stance. It provides a clear, handy résumé of Castoriadis's political ideas, in advance of their times and profoundly relevant to today's world.

Manhattan

Manhattan

The Queer Turn in Feminism

The Queer Turn in Feminism
Anne Emmanuelle Berger, Translated by Catherine Porter
More than any other area of late-twentieth-century thinking, gender theory and its avatars have been to a large extent a Franco-American invention. In this book, a leading Franco-American scholar traces differences and intersections in the development of gender and queer theories on both sides of the Atlantic.

Being Nude

Being Nude
Jean-Luc Nancy, and Federico Ferrari, Translated by Anne O'Byrne, and Carlie Anglemire
26 reflections on nude images from the history of Western art including Rembrandt, Goya, David Hockney and Nan Golden. The authors, both philosophers, develop an approach to the nude that involves shedding preconceived concepts and exposing ourselves to the fleeting sense that passes over the surface of the nude
