In a series of reflective and critical essays, Samuel Moyn engages with some of the leading theorists of human rights, who have been creating a field from scratch without due reflection... more...

  • Mankind in the Makingby H. G. Wells

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 4.99

    One of the primary motivations behind H. G. Wells most popular science fiction works was his exploration of the factors that could help or harm society.

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    Though it may be surprising in today's political context, in which the term "socialism" is often uttered like a profane insult, this political school of thought was quite popular in the early twentieth century and gained a significant amount of traction among prominent thinkers and leaders.

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 32.00

One unfortunate result of preoccupation with the nuclear threat, however, has been a new kind of "respectability"... more...

  • Freudianismby Valentin Voloshinov; Neal Bruss; I.R. Titunik

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 17.95

    Freudianism is a major icon in the history of ideas, independently rich and suggestive today both for psychoanalysis and for theories of language. It offers critical insights whose recognition demands a change in the manner in which the fundamental principles of both psychoanalysis and linguistic theory are understood. Volosinov went to the root... more...
