Spirits Hovering Over the Ashes
Spirits Hovering Over the Ashes (May 1995)
Legacies of Postmodern Theory
H. L. Hix - Author

This book explores the consequences of postmodern theory and answers the question, "What did postmodern theory begin?"
In a series of topical explorations structured like a sonata, H. L. Hix identifies the consequences of postmodern theory through such issues as grief, freedom, beauty, obscenity, love, and sex to its axiological consequences. A basic motif, postmodernism's distribution of meaning over space rather than time, recurs throug...(Read More)

Reflections Across the Disciplines
Robert F. Goodman - Editor
Walter R. Fisher - Editor

This is an exploration of modernism and postmodernism in regard to knowledge: methods of inquiry, operations of the mind, the role of values, conceptions of self, and the problematic of reason.

It Looks At You
It Looks At You (January 1995)
The Returned Gaze of Cinema

This is a study of the "returned gaze" from the cinema screen, demonstrating that the films that we watch watch us, guide us, control our gaze, and enforce societal codes.

A Reader in (Post)Modern Critical Theory

Hauntings

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.

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. The fears of America--the hauntings by the Ro...(Read More)
 
 
Heidegger from Metaphysics to Thought
Heidegger from Metaphysics to Thought (December 1994)
Dominique Janicaud - Author
Jean-Francois Mattei - Author
Michael Gendre - Translator

"Philosophy has come to an end" claimed Heidegger in the final posthumously published interview he granted to Der Spiegel. The goal of Janicaud's chapters ("Overcoming Metaphysics?," "Heideggeriana," "Metamorphosis of the Undecidable," and the dialogue "Heidegger in New York") first of all is to clarify the project of "overcoming" metaphysics, a project that Heidegger himself recognized as open to innumerable misunderstandings. Is it really...(Read More)
 
 
To Nietzsche: Dionysus, I Love You! Ariadne
To Nietzsche: Dionysus, I Love You! Ariadne (December 1994)
Claudia Crawford - Author

This book explores the possibility that Friedrich Nietzsche simulated his madness as a form of 'voluntary death,' and thus that his madness functioned as the symbolic culmination of his philosophy.

The book weaves together scholarly, mytho-poetic, literary critical, biographical, and dramatic genres not only to explore specifics of Nietzsche's 'madness,' but to question the 'reason/madness' o...(Read More)

Red Square, Black Square (November 1994)
Organon for Revolutionary Imagination
Vladislav Todorov - Author

This book builds a new vision of the development of Russian revolutionary culture, bringing together fiction, criticism, utopian projects, manifestos, performance and film theory, religious philosophy, and the imaginary space of communism centered around the Mummy of Lenin.
