_David Macey____The Lives of Michel Foucault

[Vintage_1995]

When he died of an AIDS-related condition in 1984, try Michel Foucault had become the most influential French philosopher since the end of World War II. His powerful studies of the creation of modern medicine, prisons, psychiatry, and other methods of classification have had a lasting impact on philosophers, historians, critics, and novelists the world over. But as public as he was in his militant campaigns on behalf of prisoners, dissidents, and homosexuals, he shrouded his personal life in mystery.

In The Lives of Michel Foucault — written with the full cooperation of Daniel Defert, Foucault’s former lover — David Macey gives the richest account to date of Foucault’s life and work, informed as it is by the complex issues arising from his writings.

_Donald MacKenzie____An Engine, Not a Camera : How Financial Models Shape Markets

[The MIT Press_2006]

In An Engine, Not a Camera, Donald MacKenzie argues that the emergence of modern economic theories of finance affected financial markets in fundamental ways. These new, Nobel Prize-winning theories, based on elegant mathematical models of markets, were not simply external analyses but intrinsic parts of economic processes.

Paraphrasing Milton Friedman, MacKenzie says that economic models are an engine of inquiry rather than a camera to reproduce empirical facts. More than that, the emergence of an authoritative theory of financial markets altered those markets fundamentally. For example, in 1970, there was almost no trading in financial derivatives such as “futures.” By June of 2004, derivatives contracts totaling $273 trillion were outstanding worldwide. MacKenzie suggests that this growth could never have happened without the development of theories that gave derivatives legitimacy and explained their complexities.

MacKenzie examines the role played by finance theory in the two most serious crises to hit the world’s financial markets in recent years: the stock market crash of 1987 and the market turmoil that engulfed the hedge fund Long-Term Capital Management in 1998. He also looks at finance theory that is somewhat beyond the mainstream–chaos theorist Benoit Mandelbrot’s model of “wild” randomness. MacKenzie’s pioneering work in the social studies of finance will interest anyone who wants to understand how America’s financial markets have grown into their current form.

_John Maeda____The Laws of Simplicity

[The MIT Press_2006]

Finally, we are learning that simplicity equals sanity. We’re rebelling against technology that’s too complicated, DVD players with too many menus, and software accompanied by 75-megabyte “read me” manuals. The iPod’s clean gadgetry has made simplicity hip. But sometimes we find ourselves caught up in the simplicity paradox: we want something that’s simple and easy to use, but also does all the complex things we might ever want it to do. In The Laws of Simplicity, John Maeda offers ten laws for balancing simplicity and complexity in business, technology, and design–guidelines for needing less and actually getting more.

Maeda–a professor in MIT’s Media Lab and a world-renowned graphic designer–explores the question of how we can redefine the notion of “improved” so that it doesn’t always mean something more, something added on.

Maeda’s first law of simplicity is “Reduce.” It’s not necessarily beneficial to add technology features just because we can. And the features that we do have must be organized (Law 2) in a sensible hierarchy so users aren’t distracted by features and functions they don’t need. But simplicity is not less just for the sake of less. Skip ahead to Law 9: “Failure: Accept the fact that some things can never be made simple.” Maeda’s concise guide to simplicity in the digital age shows us how this idea can be a cornerstone of organizations and their products–how it can drive both business and technology. We can learn to simplify without sacrificing comfort and meaning, and we can achieve the balance described in Law 10. This law, which Maeda calls “The One,” tells us: “Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful.”

_Saree Makdisi____Marxism Beyond Marxism

[Routledge_1995]

Marxism Beyond Marxism is a collection of essays that critically rethinks Marxism at time when its practice and theory has been seemingly taken to task by the events in 1989 in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Containing essays from a group of internationally distinguished writers and intellectuals, this collection addresses Marxism as a cultural-political problematic.

Contending that Marxism is deeply embedded in specific cultural practices, the contributors illuminate Marxism’s contribution to discussions of labor in post-industrial capitalism, to controversies surrounding compulsory heterosexuality and queer theory, and to debates about the institutionalization and academicization of the “New” Left. In examining Marxism’s relationship to cultural practices, the contributors make a vigorous and compelling case for Marxism’s continued relevance. By combining a diversity of perspectives, these essays demonstrate that Marxism addresses urgent needs that are often foresaken by other political and ideological practices. They show how–now more than ever–Marxism’s reaffirmation can serve as a sophisticated and cunning response to the latest global devlopments–and travesties.

_Catherine Malabou____Que faire de notre cerveau ?

[Bayard_2004]

Ne soyons pas dupes de la façon dont on nous parle de notre cerveau
Le cerveau a toujours été l’organe le plus sujet aux métaphores politiques. Certainement parce qu’il est celui qui commande. Mais les dernières découvertes le concernant, notamment celle qui touche à sa plasticité, ont fondamentalement remis en cause cette fonction.
Que trouve-t-on en effet dans le cerveau ? Des milliards de neurones, connectés par un réseau de jonctions innombrables, qui ne cessent de se développer et de changer tout au long de la vie. Le cerveau se sculpte lui-même, notamment par la mort cellulaire. Il est aussi sensible aux stimulations extérieures qui influencent directement le développement et le volume des connexions. Il sait également se réparer lui-même. Bref, le cerveau est flexible.
La question que pose ici Catherine Malabou est la suivante : le cerveau a cessé de fait d’être la métaphore d’un pouvoir centralisé et rigide. Mais pour autant, la description que l’on en fait actuellement est-elle dénuée de toute arrière-pensée politique ? Il est en effet troublant de constater que les mêmes mots, à commencer par la flexibilité, sont utilisés communément dans la vie économique.
La description du cerveau aujourd’hui n’est-elle pas l’image du monde capitaliste dans lequel nous vivons ? Ne décrit-elle pas une autre forme de pouvoir qui ne serait pas centralisé mais n’en resterait pas moins un poste de commande, d’où on encense l’adaptabilité absolue, la flexibilité et d’où on rejette les individus sans mobilité, trop rigides ?
Ne soyons pas dupes de la façon dont on nous parle de notre cerveau.

Une critique originale du capitalisme.

_Catherine Malabou____Le change Heidegger : Du fantastique en philosophie

[Léo Scheer_2004]

Il est temps de proposer une autre lecture de Heidegger. Il est temps de situer enfin le vif de sa pensée : la transformation originaire. La question de l’être abrite en effet celle du change : changement, échange, convertibilité, substitution. De la métaphysique à l’autre pensée, l’être n’est rien que sa mutabilité. Qu’est-ce qui vient avec le change et comment allons-nous trous transformer maintenant que l’histoire est terminée ? Dans quelles métamorphoses, quelles migrations, quelles révolutions sommes-nous engagé ? A l’heure des façonnements de soi dans l’ordre sexuel, biologique, politique, à l’heure de la plasticité identitaire, ces questions trouvent toute leur actualité fantastique. Une vision entièrement neuve de la différence petit alors prendre forme

[DeriveApprodi_2002]

Questo libro si concentra sulle cause che hanno portato alla depressione economica e finanziaria internazionale e sugli strumenti di cui il governo americano si sta dotando per rispondervi: la guerra. Tra la fine della new economy e la nuova economia di guerra non c’è un semplice legame di causa-effetto, ma un rapporto che è tessuto da molti fili: il passaggio da una forma di produzione di tipo industriale a una di tipo informatico, il ruolo della finanza e delle politiche neoliberali, la proprietà delle risorse mondiali e delle materie prime, e persino la radicale mutazione dello stesso capitalismo. Capire le premesse economiche del crollo delle Twin Towers significa capire il paradigma produttivo che si va imponendo: la guerra.

_Oliver Marchart____Post-Foundational Political Thought: Political Difference in Nancy, Lefort, Badiou and Laclau

[Edinburgh University Press_2007]

A wide-ranging overview of the emergence of post-foundationalism and a survey of the work of its key contemporary exponents.
This book presents the first systematic coverage of the conceptual difference between ‘politics’ (the practice of conventional politics: the political system or political forms of action) and ‘the political’ (a much more radical aspect which cannot be restricted to the realms of institutional politics). It is also the first introductory overview of post-foundationalism and the tradition of ‘left Heideggerianism’: the political thought of contemporary theorists who make frequent use of the idea of political difference: Jean-Luc Nancy, Claude Lefort, Alain Badiou, and Ernesto Laclau.
After an overview of current trends in social post-foundationalism and a genealogical chapter on the historical emergence of the difference between the concepts of ‘politics’ and ‘the political’, the work of individual theorists is presented and discussed at length. Individual chapters are presented on the political thought of Jean-Luc Nancy (including Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe), Claude Lefort, Alain Badiou, and Ernesto Laclau (including Chantal Mouffe).
Overall the book offers an elaboration of the idea of a post-foundational conception of politics.

_Avishai Margalit____The Ethics of Memory

[Harvard University Press_2004]

Much of the intense current interest in collective memory concerns the politics of memory. In a book that asks, “Is there an ethics of memory?” Avishai Margalit addresses a separate, perhaps more pressing, set of concerns.
The idea he pursues is that the past, connecting people to each other, makes possible the kinds of “thick” relations we can call truly ethical. Thick relations, he argues, are those that we have with family and friends, lovers and neighbors, our tribe and our nation–and they are all dependent on shared memories. But we also have “thin” relations with total strangers, people with whom we have nothing in common except our common humanity. A central idea of the ethics of memory is that when radical evil attacks our shared humanity, we ought as human beings to remember the victims.
Margalit’s work offers a philosophy for our time, when, in the wake of overwhelming atrocities, memory can seem more crippling than liberating, a force more for revenge than for reconciliation. Morally powerful, deeply learned, and elegantly written, The Ethics of Memory draws on the resources of millennia of Western philosophy and religion to provide us with healing ideas that will engage all of us who care about the nature of our relations to others.

_Serge Margel____Superstition : L’anthropologie du religieux en terre de chrétienté

[Editions Galilée_2005]

Comment repenser aujourd’hui l’histoire de l’Occident chrétien en considérant côte à côte le discours apologétique de la vera religio et le discours anthropologique des sciences humaines ? Autrement dit, comment penser la possibilité d’une anthropologie religieuse du christianisme ? À vrai dire, cette question est double. D’un côté, quel est le statut du religieux dans nos sociétés contemporaines ? De l’autre, quel est le destin du christianisme en modernité ? En somme, il s’agirait de questionner le rôle du christianisme dans la définition moderne du phénomène religieux, donc dans le discours des sciences humaines. Dans quelle mesure, en se retirant progressivement de la société, le christianisme a-t-il pu en même temps révéler les fondements politiques du phénomène religieux et permettre l’accomplissement d’une autonomie politique, une démocratie d’État, libre de toute autorité religieuse ? L’hypothèse générale serait la suivante : d’une part, l’institution chrétienne, en modernité, se retire de la société de la même manière que le christianisme naissant s’est démarqué des autres religions, juive et païenne. C’est une seule et même logique institutionnelle qui se joue ici. Une logique de la séparation, qui à la fois distingue le religieux du politique, et analyse, critique, voire déconstruit les déterminations ” subjectives “, individuelles et collectives, de toute institution sociale. Et, d’autre part, cette logique se fonde sur une opposition radicale entre religion et superstition, entre un culte intérieur, ” en esprit “, une relation à Dieu instaurée par Dieu lui-même, et un faux culte offert aux démons, une idolâtrie. Toute institution sociale et humaine devenant par là même une forme de superstition, une falsification, un péril, un danger, qui menace les fondements de toute autorité. L’histoire de l’Occident chrétien pourrait alors se penser comme une longue histoire de la superstition. C’est non seulement en termes de superstition que toute religion aura défini la ” religion de l’autre “, mais c’est surtout en ces termes que le discours apologétique du christianisme (où la religion s’oppose à la superstition, comme une institution divine s’oppose aux institutions sociales) s’est déplacé en discours anthropologique des sciences humaines (où la religion et la superstition proviennent des mêmes sources subjectives). Décrire ce déplacement du discours, des premiers Pères de l’Église aux représentants majeurs de la modernité, c’est non seulement définir une nouvelle configuration entre politique et religion, dans nos sociétés contemporaines, mais c’est encore et surtout s’interroger sur les nouveaux phénomènes religieux que produisent ces sociétés. Phénomènes plus du tout religieux et plus religieux que jamais, au seuil des frontières entre la religion et la superstition.

_Jean-Luc Marion____God Without Being : Hors-Texte

[University Of Chicago Press_1995]

Jean-Luc Marion advances a controversial argument for a God free of all categories of Being. Taking a characteristically postmodern stance, Marion challenges a fundamental premise of both metaphysics and neo-Thomist theology: that God, before all else, must be. Rather, he locates a “God without Being” in the realm of agape, of Christian charity or love.

This volume, the first translation into English of the work of this leading Catholic philosopher, offers a contemporary perspective on the nature of God.

“An immensely thoughtful book. . . . It promises a rich harvest. Marion’s highly original treatment of the idol and the icon, the Eucharist, boredom and vanity, conversion and prayer takes theological and philosophical discussions to a new level.”–Norman Wirzba, Christian Century

_Jean-Luc Marion____The Crossing of the Visible (Cultural Memory in the Present)

[Stanford University Press_2003]

Painting, according to Jean-Luc Marion, is a central topic of concern for philosophy, particularly phenomenology. For the question of painting is, at its heart, a question of visibility—of appearance. As such, the painting is a privileged case of the phenomenon; the painting becomes an index for investigating the conditions of appearance—or what Marion describes as “phenomenality” in general.

In The Crossing of the Visible, Marion takes up just such a project. The natural outgrowth of his earlier reflections on icons, these four studies carefully consider the history of painting—from classical to contemporary—as a fund for phenomenological reflection on the conditions of (in)visibility. Ranging across artists from Raphael to Rothko, Caravaggio to Pollock, The Crossing of the Visible offers both a critique of contemporary accounts of the visual and a constructive alternative. According to Marion, the proper response to the “nihilism” of postmodernity is not iconoclasm, but rather a radically iconic account of the visual and the arts that opens them to the invisible.

_Matt Mason____The Pirate’s Dilemma: How Youth Culture Is Reinventing Capitalism

[Free Press_2008]

It started with punk. Hip-hop, rave, graffiti, and gaming took it to another level, and now modern technology has made the ideas and innovations of youth culture increasingly intimate and increasingly global at the same time.
In The Pirate’s Dilemma, VICE magazine’s Matt Mason — poised to become the Malcolm Gladwell of the iPod Generation — brings the exuberance of a passionate music fan and the technological savvy of an IT wizard to the task of sorting through the changes brought about by the interface of pop culture and innovation. He charts the rise of various youth movements — from pirate radio to remix culture — and tracks their ripple effect throughout larger society. Mason brings a passion and a breadth of intelligence to questions such as the following: How did a male model who messed with disco records in the 1970s influence the way Boeing designs airplanes? Who was the nun who invented dance music, and how is her influence undermining capitalism as we know it? Did three high school kids who remixed Nazis into Smurfs in the 1980s change the future of the video game industry? Can hip-hop really bring about world peace? Each chapter crystallizes the idea behind one of these fringe movements and shows how it combined with technology to subvert old hierarchies and empower the individual.
With great wit and insight — and a cast of characters that includes such icons as the Ramones, Andy Warhol, Madonna, Russell Simmons, and 50 Cent — Mason uncovers the trends that have transformed countercultural scenes into burgeoning global industries and movements, ultimately changing our way of life.

_Brian Massumi____Parables for the Virtual: Movement, Affect, Sensation

[Duke University Press_2002]

Although the body has been the focus of much contemporary cultural theory, the models that are typically applied neglect the most salient characteristics of embodied existence—movement, affect, and sensation—in favor oaf concepts derived from linguistic theory. In Parables for the Virtual Brian Massumi views the body and media such as television, film, and the Internet, as cultural formations that operate on multiple registers of sensation beyond the reach of the reading techniques founded on the standard rhetorical and semiotic models.
Renewing and assessing William James’s radical empiricism and Henri
Bergson’s philosophy of perception through the filter of the post-war French philosophy of Deleuze, Guattari, and Foucault, Massumi links a cultural logic of variation to questions of movement, affect, and sensation. If such concepts are as fundamental as signs and significations, he argues, then a new set of theoretical issues appear, and with them potential new paths for the wedding of scientific and cultural theory. Replacing the traditional opposition of literal and figural with new distinctions between stasis and motion and between actual and virtual, Parables for the Virtual tackles related theoretical issues by applying them to cultural mediums as diverse as architecture, body art, the digital art of Stelarc, and Ronald Reagan’s acting career. The result is an intriguing combination of cultural theory, science, and philosophy that asserts itself in a crystalline and multi-faceted argument.
Parables for the Virtual will interest students and scholars of continental and Anglo-American philosophy, cultural studies, cognitive science, electronic art, digital culture, and chaos theory, as well as those concerned with the “science wars” and the relation between the humanities and the sciences in general.

Ranko Matasović jedan je od najcjenjenijih hrvatskih lingvista i ovaj njegov povijesni prikaz fenomena jezične raznolikosti svijeta nastao je upravo za biblioteku Facta. Zamisao je da se o rastućem fenomenu ugroženosti jezika s malim brojem govornika progovori upravo iz pera izvornog govornika jednog takvog jezika, ujedno i stručnjaka koji može najbolje osjetiti i protumačiti globalizacijske utjecaje na naš jezik.

Ova zanimljiva i informativna knjiga na znanstveno-popularan način odgovara na neka od općih pitanja lingvistike: kako i zašto se jezici međusobno razlikuju, zašto se u nekim dijelovima svijeta i u nekim razdobljima svjetske povijesti razlikuju više, a u drugima manje, te zašto se na svijetu danas govori oko šest tisuća jezika. Ujedno, Matasović nudi odgovore na neka društveno relevantna pitanje: zašto većini jezika na svijetu danas prijeti masovno izumiranje, zbog čega je to nepoželjno, te što se može poduzeti da do toga ne dođe. 

Popraćena je brojnim ilustracijama i zemljopisnim kartama na kojima je prikazana raspodjela pojedinih velikih jezika i jezičnih porodica u svijetu, te područja najveće jezične raznolikosti kao i područja gdje velikom broju malih jezika prijeti izumiranje. 

Biblioteka Facta s ponosom vam predstavlja svojeg prvog domaćeg autora. Njegov rad stoji uz bok najvećim imenima svjetske znanstvene elite koja čine okosnicu programa ove serije.

_Bill Maurer____Mutual Life, Limited: Islamic Banking, Alternative Currencies, Lateral Reason

[Princeton University Press_2005]

Why are people continually surprised to discover that money is “just” meaning? Mutual Life, Limited spends time among those who, in acknowledging the fictions of finance, are making money anew. It documents ongoing efforts to remake money and finance by Islamic bankers who seek to avoid interest and local currency proponents who would stand outside of national economies. It asks how alternative moneys both escape and reenact dominant forms of money and finance, and reflects critically on their broader implications for scholarship.
Based on fieldwork among participants in a local currency system in Ithaca, New York, and among Islamic banking practitioners in the United States, Indonesia, and elsewhere, this book exploits the convergence between the reflexivity of monetary alternatives and social inquiry by questioning the equivalence between money and ethnography. Can money ever be adequate to the value backing it? Can social description ever be adequate to messy and contingent realities?
Bill Maurer’s ethnographic discovery is that ethnography as such–the holistic description of a way of life–cannot be sustained when faced with a set of practices that anticipates and incorporates it in advance. His fluently written book represents an unprecedented critique of social scientific approaches to money through an ethnographic description of specific monetary alternatives, while also speaking broadly to the very problem of anthropological knowledge in the twenty-first century.

_Christopher May____The Information Society : A Skeptical View

[Polity Press_2002]

In this timely new book, Christopher May surveys some of the most influential and important writings that declare we are entering a new information age. It is frequently asserted that this will bring about a social transformation and that the character of work is being transformed by the widespread deployment of information and communication technologies. In a similar manner we are told the world of politics is changing, with new communities emerging which will alter the practices of politics in profound and novel ways, and which will significantly reduce the role of the state and government. Each of these claims is subjected to a detailed critique.Christopher May suggests that while there have clearly been some major and important changes prompted by the information technology revolution, these are often changes only in the forms of activity and not their substance. The information age represents some marked and important continuities with previous social practices, rather than the overthrow of all that has gone before. This sceptical view balances and moderates the often hysterical celebration of the new information society – a celebration which, the author argues, often lapses into an apologia for modern capitalism.The Information Society will be of particular interest to students in sociology, politics, political economy, media and cultural studies and information studies.

_Achille Mbembe____On the Postcolony

[University of California Press_2001]

Achille Mbembe is one of the most brilliant theorists of postcolonial studies writing today. In On the Postcolony he profoundly renews our understanding of power and subjectivity in Africa. In a series of provocative essays, Mbembe contests diehard Africanist and nativist perspectives as well as some of the key assumptions of postcolonial theory.
This thought-provoking and groundbreaking collection of essays–his first book to be published in English–develops and extends debates first ignited by his well-known 1992 article “Provisional Notes on the Postcolony,” in which he developed his notion of the “banality of power” in contemporary Africa. Mbembe reinterprets the meanings of death, utopia, and the divine libido as part of the new theoretical perspectives he offers on the constitution of power. He works with the complex registers of bodily subjectivity — violence, wonder, and laughter — to profoundly contest categories of oppression and resistance, autonomy and subjection, and state and civil society that marked the social theory of the late twentieth century.
This provocative book will surely attract attention with its signal contribution to the rich interdisciplinary arena of scholarship on colonial and postcolonial discourse, history, anthropology, philosophy, political science, psychoanalysis, and literary criticism.

_Susan McCarthy/Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson____Kad slonovi plaču – emocionalni život životinja

[Algoritam_2004]

Svaki vlasnik kućnog ljubimca smatra se mjerodavnim tumačem osjećaja svoje životinje, malobrojni bi ljudi zanijekali da su životinje sposobne za emotivni život, a znanost najčešće nerado raspravlja o tome, osim kao o sentimentalnoj zabludi i antropomorfizmu. Jedna od rijetkih knjiga o problemu životinjske emocionalnosti i jedna od rijetkih koje jednostavnim i sugestivnim rječnikom uspijevaju posve promijeniti naš pogled na bića s kojima – najčešće na njihovu štetu – dijelimo ovaj svijet. Čimpanze kojima je neugodno, slonovi koji slikaju, papige kojima je dosadno, organizirane bande dupina koje zlostavljaju ženke, beskrajno tašte antilope, vrane koje se sanjkaju niz crkvenu kupolu, medvjedi koji promatraju suton – nizom dojmljivih primjera iz životinjskoga svijeta autori nas uspijevaju dobro zamisliti nad bahatošću i nedostatkom sućuti koja je ljude učinila nadmoćnima – na vlastitu štetu.

_Bill McCarty____Learning Debian GNU/Linux

[O'Reilly_1999]

Learning Debian GNU/Linux assumes only that its readers have a bit of Windows or Macintosh experience, are willing to learn, and aren’t afraid to do a little experimenting. From there, it provides a complete introductory-level explanation of installing and using Linux and the GHU suite of tools, focusing on the Debian 2.1 distribution to the extent that it differs from other flavors of Linux. Because it ships with a bootable CD-ROM that contains Debian 2.1, this book represents a complete Linux starter kit (and a reasonably priced one, at that).
The author takes a patient approach to his subject, explaining key configuration files one line at a time and walking through important procedures, such as setting up a dial-up connection to the Internet. He’s also remarkably liberal with troubleshooting ideas, frequently pausing to present lists of what might have gone wrong as a result of a recently explained procedures and suggesting solutions to each. He’s also careful to explain aspects of the Unix universe (such as mounting devices and running a windowing system atop a kernel) that might be unfamiliar to people accustomed to more mainstream operating systems. Like any good Linux user, McCarty is quick to share his favorite utilities and explain how to use them. –David Wall
Topics covered: Installing Debian Linux and the GNU suite, installing and using the X windowing system, performing critical administration and management tasks (in graphical programs and via the bash shell), setting up a local area network (LAN), setting up the Apache Web server, and using the Debian package-management utilities.

_Robert W. McChesney____Rich Media, Poor Democracy: Communication Politics in Dubious Times

[New Press_2000]

Robert McChesney makes no bones about it: he is a democrat with a small “d,” and in this book, Rich Media, Poor Democracy: Communication Politics in Dubious Times, that spells leftist. As a media scholar (McChesney is a communications professor at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), he is primarily concerned with “the contradiction,” as he puts it, “between a for-profit, highly concentrated, advertising-saturated, corporate media system and the communication requirements of a democratic society.” As a citizen, he favors resolving this contradiction through measures that would make your average CEO’s skin crawl: massive government subsidies for nonprofit journalism, vigorous antitrust litigation aimed at media conglomerates, and robust regulation of corporate broadcasters.
If your politics lie anywhere to the right of Ralph Nader’s, in other words, don’t come to this book looking for validation. But for a stimulating, nuanced, and rigorously researched presentation of the case for overhauling the current media regime, look no further. McChesney displays a sure grasp of today’s fast-evolving, high-tech mediascape, and his arguments about how to shape its future evolution (especially his critique of the now-prevalent idea that corporations deserve First Amendment rights) unfold with an often-startling common sense. Whether or not you agree with his prescriptions in the end, McChesney’s sweepingly expansive notions of democracy–and of the importance of media within it–demand to be reckoned with. –Julian Dibbell

_Michael D McGinnis____Polycentricity and Local Public Economies: Readings from the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis

[University of Michigan Press_1999]

The study of metropolitan political economies in the United States has provided much of the intellectual inspiration for the research of the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis at Indiana University. The readings collected in Polycentricity and Local Public Economies present an overview of the results of this research program on police services and metropolitan governance as well as enduring lessons for institutional analysis and public policy.
Polycentricity and Local Public Economies presents both explorations of broad general concepts and specific empirical analyses. The many interactions between the two modes of analysis provide valuable insights for the reader. Readings in the first section cover basic theoretical concepts and analytical distinctions that apply to the study of institutions generally. The second section includes conceptual pieces specifically addressed to the nature of governance in metropolitan areas, while section three reports on a series of empirical studies of police performance. Section four again broadens the focus to highlight the overall organization of local public economies. The final section discusses conceptual advances that have continuing relevance for research and policy debates.
Contributors include William Blomquist, Kathryn Firmin-Sellers, Roy Gardner, Dele Olowu, Elinor Ostrom, Vincent Ostrom, Amos Sawyer, Edella Schlager, Shui Yan Tang, Wai Fung Lam, and James S. Wunsch.
Michael McGinnis is Associate Professor, Department of Political Science and Co-Associate Director, Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Indiana University.

_Jon McKenzie____Perform or Else: From Discipline to Performance

[Routledge_2001]

“Performance” has become one of the key terms for the new century. But what do we mean by “performance?” In today’s world it can refer to experimental art; productivity in the workplace; and technological and scientific breakthroughs. 
Do these disparate fields bear any relation to each other? 
In Perform or Else, Jon McKenzie uncovers an uncanny relationship between cultural, organizational, and technological performance. His conclusion–that performance will be to the twentieth and twenty-first centuries what discipline was to the eighteenth and nineteenth–is an exhilarating realization of how culture, business, and science have become hyperlinked through globalization. This is an urgent and important intervention in contemporary critical thinking.

_Quentin Meillassoux____After Finitude: An Essay on the Necessity of Contingency

[Continuum International Publishing Group_2008]

From the preface by Alain Badiou:
It is no exaggeration to say that Quentin Meillassoux has opened up a new path in the history of philosophy, understood here as the history of what it is to know … This remarkable “critique of critique” is introduced here without embellishment, cutting straight to the heart of the matter in a particularly clear and logical manner. It allows the destiny of thought to be the absolute once more.
“This work is one of the most important to appear in continental philosophy in recent years and deserves a wide readership at the earliest possible date … Après la finitude is an important book of philosophy by an authnted emerging voices in continental thought. Quentin Meillassoux deserves our close attention in the years to come and his book deserves rapid translation and widespread discussion in the English-speaking world. There is nothing like it.” –Graham Harman in Philosophy Today
Quentin Meillassoux’s remarkable debut makes a strikingly original contribution to contemporary French philosophy and is set to have a significant impact on the future of continental philosophy. Written in a style that marries great clarity of expression with argumentative rigour, After Finitude provides bold readings of the history of philosophy and sets out a devastating critique of the unavowed fideism at the heart of post-Kantian philosophy.
The exceptional lucidity and the centrality of argument in Meillassoux’s writing should appeal to analytic as well as continental philosophers, while his critique of fideism will be of interest to anyone preoccupied by the relation between philosophy, theology and religion.
Meillassoux introduces a startlingly novel philosophical alternative to the forced choice between dogmatism and critique. After Finitude proposes a new alliance between philosophy and science and calls for an unequivocal halt to the creeping return of religiosity in contemporary philosophical discourse.

[Naklada Jesenski i Turk_2002]

Sažetak: 
Matko Meštrović spada u rijetke istraživače koji se sa zavidnom kompetencijom upuštaju u međudisciplinarne prostore. Nadvisivanje gledišta zasebnih disciplina jedna je od bitnih značajki njegove vokacije. Možda bi se njegov diskurs mogao smjestiti u kontekst kulturne antropologije. Velike i slojevite teme, sa dinamičkim semantičkim intencijama, prožimaju se u njegovom promišljanju: kultura, ekonomija, politika prelijevaju se preko granica prirodnih znanosti i susreću u propitivanju društvenih i humanističkih uvida u povijesno-civilizacijski proces.
Težeći cjelovitom poimanju suvremenog društvenog razvitka autor traga za dubljim sponama između mnogih naizgled raznorodnih izvora njegovih saznanja. Metodološki postupak koji je izgradio, striktnim poštivanjem preuzetih formulacija i oštrim razaznavanjem njihove međusobne relevantnosti, proizveo je atraktivno i posve nekonvencionalno štivo. Mimo bilo kakvog popularizatorskog tumačenja, njegovo razumijevanje brojnih i složenih pitanja suvremenog čovječanstva zadobiva ovdje mobilizatorski značaj u poticanju kritičkog mišljenja.
Matko Meštrović znanstveni je savjetnik na Ekonomskom institutu, Zagreb. Bio je profesor teorije dizajna na međufakultetskom studiju pri Arhitektonskom fakultetu Sveučilišta u Zagrebu, direktor Zavoda za kulturu Hrvatske (1987-1992), a prije toga savjetnik generalnog direktora Radio-televizije Zagreb. Početkom 60-ih, kao likovni kritičar i teoretičar stekao je značajnu reputaciju sudjelujući u organiziranju međunarodnog pokreta Nove tendencije. 
Objavio je knjige Od pojedinačnog općem (1967), Obrisi bez obrasca (1978), Teorija dizajna i problemi okoline (1980), Svijet, svijest i zavisnost (1983), Roba i sloboda (1995). Istraživački projekti koje je vodio u Ekonomskom institutu rezultirali su zbornicima Sociokulturni kapital i tranzicija u Hrvatskoj (1998) te Globalizacija i njene refleksije u Hrvatskoj (2001).

_Richard Meyer____Outlaw Representation : Censorship and Homosexuality in Twentieth-Century American Art

[Oxford University Press, USA_2002]

From the U.S. Navy’s 1934 confiscation of a painting of sailors on shore leave to contemporary culture wars over funding for the arts, conflicts surrounding homosexuality and creative freedom have shaped the history of modern art in America. Richard Meyer’s Outlaw Representation tells the
charged story of this strife through pioneering analysis of the works of gay artists and the circumstances under which these works have been attacked, suppressed, or censored outright. Focusing on the careers of Paul Cadmus, Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, David Wojnarowicz, Gran Fury, and Holly
Hughes, Outlaw Representation explores how gay artists responded to the threat of censorship by producing their own “outlaw representations” of homosexuality. Instead of acquiescing to attacks on their work as indecent or obscene, these artists used the outlaw status of homosexuality to propose new
forms of social, sexual, and creative life.

Richly illustrated, Outlaw Representation includes close to 200 striking images, ranging from the art of celebrated figures such as Andy Warhol and Robert Mapplethorpe to physique-magazine photographs and gay liberation posters. Throughout, images that once provoked censorship now elicit close
visual analysis and careful historical investigation. Engagingly written and sweepingly researched, Outlaw Representation promises to be a landmark in the study of twentieth-century American art, politics, and sexuality.

_Philippe-Alain Michaud____Aby Warburg and the Image in Motion

[Zone Books_2007]

Aby Warburg (1866-1929) is best known as the originator of the discipline of iconology and as the founder of the institute that bears his name. His followers included such celebrated art historians of the twentieth century as Erwin Panofsky, Edgar Wind, and Fritz Saxl. But his heirs developed, for the most part, a domesticated iconology based on the interpretation of symbolic material. As Phillippe-Alain Michaud shows in this important book, Warburg’s own project was remote from any positivist or neo-Kantian ambitions. Nourished on the work of Nietzsche and Burckhardt, Warburg fashioned a “critical iconology” to reveal the irrationality of the image in Western culture. Opposing the grand teleological narratives of art inaugurated by Vasari, Warburg’s method operated through historical anachronisms and discontinuities. Using “montage-collision” to create textless collections of images, he brought together pagan artifacts and masterpieces of Florentine Renaissance art, ancient Near East astrology and the Lutheran Reformation, Mannerist festivals and the sacred dances of Native Americans. Michaud insists that for Warburg, the practice of art history was the discovery within the art work itself of fracture, contradictions, tensions, and the energies of magic, empathy, totemism, and animism. Challenging normative accounts of Western European classicism, Warburg located the real sources of the Renaissance in the Dionysian spirit, in the expression of movement and dance, in the experience of trance personified in the frenzied nymph or ecstatic maenad.

Aby Warburg and the Image in Motion is not only a book about Warburg but a book written with him; Michaud uses Warburg’s intuitions and discoveries to analyze other categories of imagery, including the daguerreotype, the chronophotography of Etienne-Jules Marey, early cinema, and the dances of Loie Fuller. It will be essential reading for anyone concerned with the origins of modern art history and the visual culture of modernity.

[Routledge_2006]

Voicing the Popular brings together aspects of political economy, cultural history, and musical interpretation to examine the rise of popular music over the past 50 years. A unifying theme is that of “voice,” by which Middleton means the sphere of vocality through which popular songs are delivered, as well as a broader, metaphorical sense of “voice” as a vehicle through which subjects articulate, understand, and represent identities and personae. Tackling large themes in the field–including gender, race authenticity, and repetition as a means of structuring popular song–Middleton hopes to bring new clarity to the study of popular music, while also questioning basic assumptions.
Voicing the Popular brings a fresh, new perspective to the field of popular music studies. Written by a world-renowned authority, it will stand as both a summation and a challenge to all interested in pursuing this growing discipline.

_Markus Miessen/Shumon Basar____Did Someone Say Participate?: An Atlas of Spatial Practice

[The MIT Press_2006]

Did someone say we need yet another anthology of essays? According to the editors of Did Someone Say Participate?, the answer is an emphatic–or hysterical–”YES!” In fact, they’d go further and argue that the shifts that have taken place in the practice and pedagogy of architecture have been mirrored in other fields, and that this has happened to such an extent that an emerging generation of artists, activists, economists, curators, policy makers, photographers, editors (and, of course, architects) is reshaping how we look at contemporary social and political reality. Despite their apparent disciplinary differences, these professionals are all spatial practitioners. What was once seen as the defensive preserve of architects–mapping, making, or manipulating spaces–has become a new “culture of space” situated in the global market and media arena. Did Someone Say Participate? showcases a range of forward-thinking practitioners and theorists who actively trespass into neighboring or alien fields of knowledge in activities that range from collaborative forms of interdisciplinary practice to identifying practices of ethical terror. For the first time, architecture is here presented as the architecture of knowledge. Participation–social, political or personal–is once again at the forefront of research. Together, the contributions form an atlas of spatial practices resembling the early medieval maps that attempt to show the entire known world. Did Someone Say Participate? will be essential reading not only for those involved in the future of architectural research and practice, but for anyone interested in navigating through current forms of cultural inquiry and debate.

[Routledge_1999]

“An image is powerful not necessarily because of anything specific it offers the viewer, but because of everything it apparently also takes away from the viewer.”
–Trinh T. Minh-ha

Vietnamese filmmaker and feminist thinker Trinh T. Minh-ha is one of the most powerful and articulate voices in independent filmmaking. In her writings and interviews, as well as in her filmscripts, Trinh explores what she describes as the “infinite relation” of word to image. Cinema-Interval brings together her recent conversations on film and art, life and theory, with Homi Bhabha, Deb Verhoeven, Annamaria Morelli and other critics. Together these interviews offer the richest presentation of this extraordinary artist’s ideas.
Extensively illustrated in color and black and white, Cinema-Interval covers a wide range of issues, many of them concerning “the space between”–between viewer and film, image and text, interviewer and interviewee, lover and beloved. As an added bonus, the complete scripts of Trinh’s films Surname Viet Given Name Nam and A Tale of Love are also included in the volume.
Cinema-Interval will be an essential work for readers interested in contemporary film art, feminist thought, and postcolonial studies.

_Philip Mirowski____The Effortless Economy of Science?

[Duke University Press_2004]

A leading scholar of the history and philosophy of economic thought, Philip Mirowski argues that there has been a top-to-bottom transformation in how scientific research is organized and funded in Western countries over the past two decades and that these changes necessitate a reexamination of the ways that science and economics interact. Mirowski insists on the need to bring together the insights of economics, science studies, and the philosophy of science in order to understand how and why particular research programs get stabilized through interdisciplinary appropriation, controlled attributions of error, and funding restrictions.
Mirowski contends that neoclassical economists have persistently presumed and advanced an “effortless economy of science,” a misleading model of a self-sufficient and conceptually self-referential social structure that transcends market operations in pursuit of absolute truth. In the stunning essays collected here, he presents a radical critique of the ways that neoclassical economics is used to support, explain, and legitimate the current social practices underlying the funding and selection of “successful” science projects. He questions a host of theories, including the portraits of science put forth by Karl Popper, Michael Polanyi, and Thomas Kuhn. Among the many topics he examines are the social stabilization of quantitative measurement, the repressed history of econometrics, and the social construction of the laws of supply and demand and their putative opposite, the gift economy. In The Effortless Economy of Science? Mirowski moves beyond grand abstractions about science, truth, and democracy in order to begin to talk about the way science is lived and practiced today.

_Philip Mirowski____Machine Dreams Economics Becomes a Cyborg Science

[Cambridge University Press_2001]

This is the first cross-over book in the history of science written by an historian of economics, combining a number of disciplinary and stylistic orientations. In it Philip Mirowshki shows how what is conventionally thought to be “history of technology” can be integrated with the history of economic ideas. His analysis combines Cold War history with the history of the postwar economics profession in America and later elsewhere, revealing that the Pax Americana had much to do with the content of such abstruse and formal doctrines such as linear programming and game theory. He links the literature on “cyborg science” found in science studies to economics, an element missing in the literature to date. Mirowski further calls into question the idea that economics has been immune to postmodern currents found in the larger culture, arguing that neoclassical economics has surreptitiously participated in the desconstruction of the integral “Self.” Finally, he argues for a different style of economics, an alliance of computational and institutional themes, and challenges the widespread impression that there is nothing else besides American neoclassical economic theory left standing after the demise of Marxism. Philip Mirowski is Carl Koch Professor of Economics and the History and Philosophy of Science, University of Notre Dame. He teaches in both the economics and science studies communities and has written frequently for academic journals. He is also the author of More Heat than Light (Cambridge, 1992) and editor of Natural Images in Economics (Cambridge, 1994) and Science Bought and Sold (University of Chicago, 2001).

_Don Mitchell____The Right to the City: Social Justice and the Fight for Public Space

[The Guilford Press_2003]

In the wake of recent terrorist attacks, efforts to secure the American city have life-or-death implications. Yet demands for heightened surveillance and security throw into sharp relief timeless questions about the nature of public space, how it is to be used, and under what conditions. Blending historical and geographical analysis, this book examines the vital relationship between struggles over public space and movements for social justice in the United States. Presented are a series of linked cases that explore the judicial response to public demonstrations by early twentieth-century workers, and comparable legal issues surrounding anti-abortion protests today; the Free Speech Movement and the history of People’s Park in Berkeley; and the plight of homeless people facing new laws against their presence in urban streets. The central focus is how political dissent gains meaning and momentum–and is regulated and policed–in the real, physical spaces of the city.

[University Of Chicago Press_1987]

“[Mitchell] undertakes to explore the nature of images by comparing them with words, or, more precisely, by looking at them from the viewpoint of verbal language. . . . The most lucid exposition of the subject I have ever read.”–Rudolf Arnheim, Times Literary Supplement

_W. J. T. Mitchell____Picture Theory : Essays on Verbal and Visual Representation

[University Of Chicago Press_1995]

What precisely, W. J. T. Mitchell asks, are pictures (and theories of pictures) doing now, in the late twentieth century, when the power of the visual is said to be greater than ever before, and the “pictorial turn” supplants the “linguistic turn” in the study of culture? This book by one of America’s leading theorists of visual representation offers a rich account of the interplay between the visible and the readable across culture, from literature to visual art to the mass media.

_Bill Moggridge____Designing Interactions

[The MIT Press_2006]

Digital technology has changed the way we interact with everything from the games we play to the tools we use at work. Designers of digital technology products no longer regard their job as designing a physical object–beautiful or utilitarian–but as designing our interactions with it. In Designing Interactions, award-winning designer Bill Moggridge introduces us to forty influential designers who have shaped our interaction with technology. Moggridge, designer of the first laptop computer (the GRiD Compass, 1981) and a founder of the design firm IDEO, tells us these stories from an industry insider’s viewpoint, tracing the evolution of ideas from inspiration to outcome. The innovators he interviews–including Will Wright, creator of The Sims, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of Google, and Doug Engelbart, Bill Atkinson, and others involved in the invention and development of the mouse and the desktop–have been instrumental in making a difference in the design of interactions. Their stories chart the history of entrepreneurial design development for technology.

Moggridge and his interviewees discuss such questions as why a personal computer has a window in a desktop, what made Palm’s handheld organizers so successful, what turns a game into a hobby, why Google is the search engine of choice, and why 30 million people in Japan choose the i-mode service for their cell phones. And Moggridge tells the story of his own design process and explains the focus on people and prototypes that has been successful at IDEO–how the needs and desires of people can inspire innovative designs and how prototyping methods are evolving for the design of digital technology.

Designing Interactions is illustrated with more than 700 images, with color throughout. Accompanying the book is a DVD that contains segments from all the interviews intercut with examples of the interactions under discussion.

_Marie-Jose Mondzain____Image, Icon, Economy: The Byzantine Origins of the Contemporary Imaginary (Cultural Memory in the Present)

[Stanford University Press_2004]

The barest awareness of the ubiquity and influence of the media today provides proof enough that our fate is in the hands of the image. But when and how was this fate sealed? Image, Icon, Economy considers this question and recounts an essential thread in the conceptualization of visual images within the Western tradition. This book argues that the extraordinary force of the image in contemporary life—the contemporary imaginary—can be traced back to the Byzantine iconoclastic controversy of the eighth and ninth centuries. It was during this period that the church was compelled to produce an account of the theological status of the religious image that would nevertheless not be open to even the slightest suspicion of idolatry. The solution arrived at was the dual doctrine of the image, invisible (and thus beyond the charge of idolatry) and the icon, visible, and thus perfectly fitted to be placed at the center of a pedagogical and political strategy serving the temporal power of the church. The foundations of this immense philosophical enterprise were laid in no less than the multifarious, interwoven strands of the divine economy, God’s overall plan for the salvation of humanity.

_Mathilde Monnier/Jean-Luc Nancy/Claire Denis____Allitérations : Conversations sur la danse

[Editions Galilée_2005]

Une chorégraphe et un philosophe se rencontrent. Ce n’est pas un hasard : chacun pressent que son expérience propre passe aussi par celle de l’autre. De la danse à la pensée, une même et autre mise en jeu du corps, ce lieu de surgissement et d’échappement du sens. Ils ne cherchent pas à en construire une doctrine : ils se contentent d’échanger, de converser, après que la danseuse-chorégraphe eut inventé un spectacle dansé où le philosophe parlait (Allitérations). C’est un entretien, un pas de deux qui n’aurait pas de fin si la publication n’en mettait une, toute provisoire. L’amie cinéaste, qui les a filmés l’un et l’autre, prend part à la conversation. La question directrice, bien que discrète, voire secrète, serait celle-ci : pourquoi la danse semble-t-elle connaître aujourd’hui un temps d’invention particulièrement intense ? Quoi donc, dans l’époque, appelle à cette pensée en corps, à ce corps éperdu de vérité ? C’est tout sauf un supplément d’âme : c’est l’âme même, c’est-à-dire le corps rythmique, transi, attentif et abandonné, pensif.

_Thurston Moore____Mix Tape : The Art of Cassette Culture

[Universe_2005]

Stop. Fast-forward. Pause. Rewind. It has become part of our vocabulary when talking about the momentum of our lives . . . .
Over forty years ago Phillips launched the compact audio cassette at the 1963 Berlin Radio Show and our relationship with music has never been the same. Durable, inexpensive, and portable, the new format was an instant success. By the 1970s, we were voraciously recording music onto blank cassettes. It allowed us to listen to, and, in effect, curate music in a new way. Privately. Mix tapes let us become our own DJs, creating mixes for friends, lovers, and family, for parties and road trips.
Artist and musician Thurston Moore looks back at the plastic gadget that first let us make our own compilations. Over eighty home tapers, including artists, musicians, actors, writers, directors, comediennes, talk show hosts, and, of course, record store employees were invited to tell the stories behind their mixes. From the Romantic Tape, to the Break-up Tape, the Road Trip Tape, to the “Indoctrination” Tape-the art and text that emerged was of the mix cassette as a new way of re-sequencing music to make sense of our most stubbornly inexpressible feelings-a way of explaining ourselves to someone else, or to ourselves.

_Joanne Morra/Marquard Smith____The Prosthetic Impulse: From a Posthuman Present to a Biocultural Future

[The MIT Press_2007]

Prosthesis — pointing to an addition, replacement, extension, enhancement — has become something of an all-purpose metaphor for the interactions of body and technology. Concerned with cybernetics, transplant technology, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality, among other cultural and scientific developments, “the prosthetic” conjures up a posthuman condition. In response to this, the 13 original essays in The Prosthetic Impulse reassert the phenomenological, material, and embodied nature of prosthesis without dismissing its metaphorical potential. They examine the historical and conceptual edge between the human and the posthuman — between flesh and its accompanying technologies. Rather than tracking the transformation of one into the other, these essays address this borderline and the delicate dialectical situation in which it places us. Concentrating on this edge, the collection demonstrates how the human has been technologized and technology humanized.

The eclectic approach taken by The Prosthetic Impulse draws on disciplines ranging from gender studies, philosophy, and visual culture to psychoanalysis, cybertheory, and phenomenology. The first section, “Carnality: Between Phenomenology and the Biocultural” concentrates on the organic, describing a body that, by its very materiality, is always and already prosthetic. The second section, “Assembling: Internalization. Externalization,” considers the technological qualities and peculiarities of prosthesis, raising questions about the ways in which film, photography, AI, drawing, and literature — representation itself — can be situated within the framework of a prosthetic discourse. Taken together, the essays suggest that prosthesis is material as well as metaphorical. “It is just a matter of pondering where the inelegant edges lie,” the editors write, “and living them most wonderfully.”

_Chantal Mouffe____On the Political

[Routledge_2005]

Since September 11, we frequently hear that the struggle is between good and evil and that politics is at an end. Should we welcome or fear a ‘Third Way’ beyond left and right? In this timely and thought provoking book, Chantal Mouffe argues that third way thinking ignores fundamental, conflictual aspects of human nature and that far from expanding democracy, globalization is undermining the combative and radical heart of democratic life. 

Going back first to Aristotle, she identifies the historical origins of the political. She also reflects on the Enlightenment and the social contract, arguing that in spite of its good intentions, it fatally suppressed the radical core of political life. She uses many contemporary examples, including the Iraq war, racism and the rise of the far right, to argue that far from ending dangerous extremism, the political void created by the search for consensus inflames it.

_Chantal Mouffe____The Democratic Paradox

[Verso_2000]

From the theory of ‘deliberative democracy’ to the politics of the ‘third way’, the present Zeitgeist is characterized by attempts to deny what Chantal Mouffe contends is the inherently conflictual nature of democratic politics. Far from being signs of progress, such ideas constitute a serious threat to democratic institutions. Taking issue with John Rawls and Jurgen Habermas on one side, and the political tenets of Blair, Clinton and Schroeder on the other, Mouffe brings to the fore the paradoxical nature of modern liberal democracy in which the category of the ‘adversary’ plays a central role. She draws on the work of Wittgenstein, Derrida, and the provocative theses of Carl Schmitt, to propose a new understanding of democracy which acknowledges the ineradicability of antagonism in its workings.

_George Myerson____Heidegger, Habermas i mobitel

[Naklada Jesenski i Turk_2001]

Sažetak:

Ova rasprava sučeljava naizgled nespojivo – mobitele i filozofiju -pokušavajući odgovoriti što se u dobu masovne kampanje “mobiliziranja” događa s idejom komunikacije. 
Martin Heidegger te Jürgen Habermas nude suštinsku alternativu novim doktrinama mobilne komunikacije. Riječ je o bliskom susretu između uzajamno stranih vizija komunikacije – suprostavljenih utopizama filozofa 20. stoljeća te “mobilizirane komunikacije” 21. stoljeća.
George Myerson piše o suvremenoj kulturi i modernoj misli. Predaje engleski jezik na Kings Collegeu u Londonu.
