    ABC-CLIO 1999; US$ 74.00

    The evolution of science through the ages has often been marred by people's misconceptions.

Science has grown through the... more...

    With death looming, Jacques Derrida, the world's most famous philosopher, known as the father of "deconstruction," sat down with journalist Jean Birnbaum of the French daily Le Monde .

  • Mad for Foucaultby Lynne Huffer

    Columbia University Press 2009; US$ 27.99

    Michel Foucault was the first to embed the roots of human sexuality in discipline and biopolitics, therefore revolutionizing our conception of sex and its relationship to society, economics, and culture.

  • Crossing Horizonsby Shlomo Biderman; Ornan Rotem

    Columbia University Press 2008; US$ 54.99

    In this book, Shlomo Biderman examines the views, outlooks, and attitudes of two distinct cultures: the West and classical India.

In studying the West, Biderman considers the Bible... more...

  • Hermeneutic Communismby Gianni Vattimo; Santiago Zabala

    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 21.99

    Having lost much of its political clout and theoretical power, communism no longer represents an appealing alternative to capitalism. In its original Marxist formulation, communism promised an ideal of development, but only through a logic of war, and while a number of reformist governments still promote this ideology, their legitimacy has steadily... more...

  • Afternessby Gerhard Richter

    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 54.99

    Gerhard Richter's groundbreaking study argues that the concept of "afterness" is key to understanding the thought and aesthetics of modernity. He pursues such questions as what it means for something to "follow" something else and whether that which follows marks a clear break with what comes before. Or does that which follows tacitly perpetuate its... more...

  • Art's Claim to Truthby Gianni Vattimo; Santiago Zabala; Luca D'Isanto

    Columbia University Press 2008; US$ 19.99

    First collected in Italy in 1985, Art's Claim to Truth is considered by many philosophers to be one of Gianni Vattimo's most important works. Newly revised for English readers, the book begins with a challenge to Plato, Aristotle, Kant, and Hegel, who viewed art as a metaphysical aspect of reality rather than a futuristic anticipation of it. Following... more...
