  • Identity And Differenceby Etienne Balibar

    Verso Books 2013; US$ 23.95

    John Locke?s foundational place in the history of British empiricism and liberal political thought is well established. So, in what sense can Locke be considered a modern European philosopher? Identity and Difference argues for reassessing this canonical figure. Closely examining the "treatise on identity" added to the second edition of An Essay... more...

  • Indeterminacy and Societyby Russell Hardin

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 27.95

    In simple action theory, when people choose between courses of action, they know what the outcome will be. When an individual is making a choice "against nature," such as switching on a light, that assumption may hold true. But in strategic interaction outcomes, indeterminacy is pervasive and often intractable. Whether one is choosing for oneself... more...

  • The Faith of the Faithlessby Simon Critchley

    Verso Books 2012; US$ 24.95

    The return to religion has perhaps become the dominant cliché of contemporary theory, which rarely offers anything more than an exaggerated echo of a political reality dominated by religious war. Somehow, the secular age seems to have been replaced by a new era, where political action flows directly from metaphysical conflict. The Faith of the Faithless... more...

  • First As Tragedy, Then As Farceby Slavoj Zizek

    Verso Books 2009; US$ 12.95

    Billions of dollars have been hastily poured into the global banking system in a frantic attempt at financial stabilization. So why has it not been possible to bring the same forces to bear in addressing world poverty and environmental crisis? In this take-no-prisoners analysis, Slavoj Žižek frames the moral failures of the modern world in terms of... more...

  • In Defense of Lost Causesby Slavoj Zizek

    Verso Books 2009; US$ 21.95

    In this combative major new work, philosophical sharpshooter Slavoj Žižek looks for the kernel of truth in the totalitarian politics of the past. Examining Heidegger?s seduction by fascism and Foucault?s flirtation with the Iranian Revolution, he suggests that these were the ?right steps in the wrong direction.? On the revolutionary terror of Robespierre,... more...

  • Living in the End Timesby Slavoj Zizek

    Verso Books 2011; US$ 22.95

    The underlying premise of the book is a simple one: the global capitalist system is approaching an apocalyptic zero-point. Its four riders of the apocalypse are the ecological crisis, the consequences of the biogenetic revolution, the imbalances within the system itself (problems with intellectual property, the forthcoming struggle for raw materials,... more...

  • Staging the Peopleby Jacques Ranciere; David Fernbach

    Verso Books 2011; US$ 29.95

    These essays from the 1970s mark the inception of the distinctive project that Jacques Rancičre has pursued across forty years, with four interwoven themes: the study of working-class identity, of its philosophical interpretation, of ?heretical? knowledge and of the relationship between work and leisure. For the short-lived journal Les Révoltes Logiques... more...
