  • The Vocation Lecturesby Weber Max; Owen David

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2004; US$ 13.50

    Originally published separately, Weber's "Science as a Vocation" and "Politics as a Vocation" stand as the classic formulations of his positions on two related subjects that go to the heart of his thought: the nature and status of science and its claims to authority; and the nature and status of political claims and the ultimate justification for such... more...

  • The Silence of Animalsby John Gray

    Penguin Books Ltd 2013; US$ 15.98

    The powerful, beautiful and chilling sequel to the bestselling Straw Dogs John Gray draws on an extraordinary array of memoirs, poems, fiction and philosophy to make us re-imagine our place in the world. Writers as varied as Ballard, Borges, Freud and Conrad are mesmerised by forms of human extremity - experiences on the outer edge... more...

  • The Philosophy of Povertyby Joseph-Pierre Proudhon

    The Floating Press 2012; US$ 4.99

    This important work of political and moral philosophy set off a firestorm of criticism upon its publication in the mid-nineteenth century. Most notably, Joseph-Pierre Proudhon's The Philosophy of Poverty compelled Karl Marx to write a treatise in response. Marx's rejoinder, entitled The Poverty of Philosophy, is a fascinating companion piece... more...

  • 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?

  • 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 Somehow, the secular age seems to have been replaced by a new era, where political action flows directly from metaphysical conflict.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...
