    The co-author of the internationally bestselling The Rebel Sell brings us "slow politics": promoting slow thought, slow deliberation and slow debate.

What?s more, the crazies seem... more...

  • Ernst Jünger und die Bundesrepublikby Matthias Schöning; Ingo Stöckmann

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 168.00

    Even today Ernst Jünger (1895?1998) still continues to provoke debate.

  • Japanese Aesthetics and Animeby Dani Cavallaro

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 35.00

    This study addresses the relationship between Japanese aesthetics, a field steeped in philosophy and traditional knowledge, and anime, a prominent part of contemporary popular culture. There are three premises: (1) the abstract concepts promoted by Japanese aesthetics find concrete expression at the most disparate levels of everyday life; (2) the abstract... more...

  • Kitschby Wolfgang Braungart

    De Gruyter 2002; US$ 140.00

    Modern aesthetics is the product of a process of segregation. Works of art are something necessarily distinct from that which merely »finds the dubious acclaim of the crowd« (Schiller). All the way up to Adorno and beyond, this postulate asserted itself successfully. Any blurring of the boundaries between art and kitsch was pilloried as... more...
