Popular Film and American Culture 1990-1992
Joseph Natoli - Author

This book is about the way that popular film brings to a "sayable" level that which haunts us in the media headlines.
"This book is so very topical--in the best of all possible senses. It uses contemporary films to comment upon broader social issues: violence, homophobia, sexual abuse, television, capitalism, class, marriage, ecology, democracy, greed, subcultures, and the list could go on.

To Nietzsche: Dionysus, I Love You! Ariadne
To Nietzsche: Dionysus, I Love You! Ariadne (December 1994)
Claudia Crawford - Author

Nietzsche's Aesthetic Turn
Nietzsche's Aesthetic Turn (November 1994)
Reading Nietzsche after Heidegger, Deleuze, Derrida
James J. Winchester - Author

This clearly written book, intended for both specialists and nonspecialists, focuses on Nietzsche's later writings, where he appears unsystematic and indifferent to questions of truth.

The Necessary Angel
The Necessary Angel (November 1994)
Massimo Cacciari - Author
Miguel E. Vatter - Translator

"Cacciari tells a story. It is the story of the history of angels in Judaic, Islamic, and Christian traditions; and it continues as an amplification of the metaphor of angels in such writers as Dante, Rilke, Kafka, Benjamin, Klee, and Marc in order to speak about the phenomenology of language. Cacciari talks about angels in order to describe the contradictory nature of linguistic signs (absolute freedom and absolute determination). The greatest i...(Read More)

The Play of the Self
The Play of the Self (September 1994)
Ronald Bogue - Editor
Mihai I. Spariosu - Editor

“The book covers extraordinary ground in literature, the arts, philosophy, and even the social sciences. The concern about the issue of self and the representations of self brings far-reaching ideas together in the most surprising and mutually illuminating ways. Poststructuralist and postmodernist critiques of self-identity have made the topic controversial and broadly relevant to all the fields represented. Extreme statements abound on both s...(Read More)
 
 
Gods of Play
Gods of Play (August 1994)
Baroque Festive Performances as Rhetorical Discourse
Kristiaan Aercke - Author

"While most scholars who have worked on the relationship of art and power in the Renaissance and Baroque ages have limited their focus to one national tradition, or at best to England, France, and Italy, Aercke brings the baroque spectacle performance to life as a truly pan-European phenomenon, as interesting for its common characteristics as for its particular formulation in particular courtly settings. The depth and breadth of his research are mo...(Read More)
