_Jeffrey D. Sachs____Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet

[Penguin Press HC, The_2008]

From one of the world’s greatest economic minds, author of The New York Times bestseller The End of Poverty, a clear and vivid map of the road to sustainable and equitable global prosperity and an augury of the global economic collapse that lies ahead if we don’t follow it

The global economic system now faces a sustainability crisis, Jeffrey Sachs argues, that will overturn many of our basic assumptions about economic life. The changes will be deeper than a rebalancing of economics and politics among different parts of the world; the very idea of competing nation-states scrambling for power, resources, and markets will, in some crucial respects, become passŽ. The only question is how bad it will have to get before we face the unavoidable. We will have to learn on a global scale some of the hard lessons that successful societies have gradually and grudgingly learned within national borders: that there must be common ground between rich and poor, among competing ethnic groups, and between society and nature.

The central theme of Jeffrey Sachs’s new book is that we need a new economic paradigm-global, inclusive, cooperative, environmentally aware, science based- because we are running up against the realities of a crowded planet. The alternative is a worldwide economic collapse of unprecedented severity. Prosperity will have to be sustained through more cooperative processes, relying as much on public policy as on market forces to spread technology, address the needs of the poor, and to husband threatened resources of water, air, energy, land, and biodiversity. The “soft issues” of the environment, public health, and population will become the hard issues of geopolitics. New forms of global politics will in important ways replace capital-city-dominated national diplomacy and intrigue. National governments, even the United States, will become much weaker actors as scientific networks and socially responsible investors and foundations become the more powerful actors.

If we do the right things, there is room for all on the planet. We can achieve the four key goals of a global society: prosperity for all, the end of extreme poverty, stabilization of the global population, and environmental sustainability. These are not utopian goals or pipe dreams, yet they are far from automatic. Indeed, we are not on a successful trajectory now to achieve these goals. Common Wealth points the way to the course correction we must embrace for the sake of our common future.

_Edward W. Said____Music at the Limits

[Columbia University Press_2007]

Music at the Limits is the first book to bring together three decades of Edward W. Said’s essays and articles on music. Addressing the work of a variety of composers, musicians, and performers, Said carefully draws out music’s social, political, and cultural contexts and, as a classically trained pianist, provides rich and often surprising assessments of classical music and opera.
Music at the Limits offers both a fresh perspective on canonical pieces and a celebration of neglected works by contemporary composers. Said faults the Metropolitan Opera in New York for being too conservative and laments the way in which opera superstars like Pavarotti have “reduced opera performance to a minimum of intelligence and a maximum of overproduced noise.” He also reflects on the censorship of Wagner in Israel; the worrisome trend of proliferating music festivals; an opera based on the life of Malcolm X; the relationship between music and feminism; the pianist Glenn Gould; and the works of Mozart, Bach, Richard Strauss, and others.
Said wrote his incisive critiques as both an insider and an authority. He saw music as a reflection of his ideas on literature and history and paid close attention to its composition and creative possibilities. Eloquent and surprising, Music at the Limits preserves an important dimension of Said’s brilliant intellectual work and cements his reputation as one of the most influential and groundbreaking scholars of the twentieth century.


_Lester M Salamon/S. Wojciech Sokolowski____Global Civil Society: Dimensions of the Nonprofit Sector

[Kumarian Press_1999]

Global Civil Society: Dimensions of the Nonprofit Sector provides a comprehensive country-by-country analysis of the scope, size, composition, and financing of the nonprofit sector in twenty-two countries in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, with new data on nonprofit employment, volunteering, expenditures, and revenues. In addition, it provides a comparative overview and documents recent trends in sector size and composition.
Among other things, the results demonstrate that the nonprofit sector is a far more significant economic force around the world than is commonly understood, that substantial differences exist in both the overall size and the composition of this sector in different countries, that private philanthropy plays a far less significant role in the financing of this sector than either fees or public sector support, and that the sector has grown substantially in recent years in most of the countries for which trend data are available.
Included in the book are Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom in Western Europe; the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia in Central and Eastern Europe; Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru in Latin America; as well as Australia, Israel, Japan, and the United States.
Global Civil Society is essential reading for nonprofit and foundation leaders, public policy makers, educators, and others interested in nonprofit activity around the world. This 511-page volume is the result of years of study by nearly 150 researchers in 22 countries through the Johns Hopkins Comparative Nonprofit Sector Project.

_Eric L. Santner____On Creaturely Life: Rilke, Benjamin, Sebald

[University Of Chicago Press_2006]

In his Duino Elegies, Rainer Maria Rilke suggests that animals enjoy direct access to a realm of being—the open—concealed from humans by the workings of consciousness and self-consciousness. In his own reading of Rilke, Martin Heidegger reclaims the open as the proper domain of human existence but suggests that human life remains haunted by vestiges of an animal-like relation to its surroundings. Walter Benjamin, in turn, was to show that such vestiges—what Eric Santner calls the creaturely—have a biopolitical aspect: they are linked to the processes that inscribe life in the realm of power and authority. Santner traces this theme of creaturely life from its poetic and philosophical beginnings in the first half of the twentieth century to the writings of the enigmatic German novelist W. G. Sebald. Sebald’s entire oeuvre, Santner argues, can be seen as an archive of creaturely life. For Sebald, the work on such an archive was inseparable from his understanding of what it means to engage ethically with another person’s history and pain, an engagement that transforms us from indifferent individuals into neighbors. An indispensable book for students of Sebald, On Creaturely Life is also a significant contribution to critical theory.


_Philipp Sarasin____Anthrax: Bioterror as Fact and Fantasy

[Harvard University Press_2006]

The potential for creating and using biological weapons to wreak havoc is an urgent concern not just in America, but worldwide. In fact, many security experts believe that the next act of widespread terrorism will likely come from a weapon of biochemical means.
In Anthrax: Bioterror as Fact and Fantasy, Philipp Sarasin explores the real threats of biological weapons–in contrast to the idea of biological substances as nebulous agents of terror–by analyzing the famous anthrax scares that occurred in the United States in 2001. Basing his analysis on government documents and media coverage between the events of September 11, 2001, and the beginning of the Iraq War in March 2003, he shows that the anthrax letters became the necessary fantasy-link between the 9/11 attacks and Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction.” While many bioterrorism experts agree that it would be difficult to use anthrax effectively as a weapon in a large-scale attack, the anthrax scares that occurred in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks amplified the American public’s fear and uncertainty about what might come next. In effect, these incidents infected the American psyche and created an increased sense of vulnerability that shaped the public’s understanding of the War on Terror.
Sarasin, in offering a European’s view of the U.S. reaction to the anthrax scare, argues that while threats of bioterrorism are real, they are disproportionate to the fantasmal fears and illusions that now permeate American politics and culture. In short, fear of bioterror has contaminated modern American life.


_Ziauddin Sardar____Thomas Kuhn i ratovi znanosti

[Naklada Jesenski i Turk_2001]

”Thomas Kuhn i ratovi znanosti” knjiga je koja pokazuje kako je znanost postala najosporavaniji simbol kulture i govori o tome da nam treba nova “postnormalna” sinteza u koju će prijeći sve stare rasprave. Znanost nije prikazivanje dostignuća stručnjaka, već dijalog čuvara uloženih sredstava. To je novi lik znanosti, koji Kuhnovim začetnim predodžbama o njezinom društvenom djelovanju udahnjuje novi život.

_Saskia Sassen____Territory, Authority, Rights : From Medieval to Global Assemblages

[Princeton University Press_2006]

Where does the nation-state end and globalization begin? In Territory, Authority, Rights, one of the world’s leading authorities on globalization shows how the national state made today’s global era possible. Saskia Sassen argues that even while globalization is best understood as “denationalization,” it continues to be shaped, channeled, and enabled by institutions and networks originally developed with nations in mind, such as the rule of law and respect for private authority. This process of state making produced some of the capabilities enabling the global era. The difference is that these capabilities have become part of new organizing logics: actors other than nation-states deploy them for new purposes. Sassen builds her case by examining how three components of any society in any age–territory, authority, and rights–have changed in themselves and in their interrelationships across three major historical “assemblages”: the medieval, the national, and the global.
The book consists of three parts. The first, “Assembling the National,” traces the emergence of territoriality in the Middle Ages and considers monarchical divinity as a precursor to sovereign secular authority. The second part, “Disassembling the National,” analyzes economic, legal, technological, and political conditions and projects that are shaping new organizing logics. The third part, “Assemblages of a Global Digital Age,” examines particular intersections of the new digital technologies with territory, authority, and rights.
Sweeping in scope, rich in detail, and highly readable, Territory, Authority, Rights is a definitive new statement on globalization that will resonate throughout the social sciences.

_T. M. Scanlon____What We Owe to Each Other

[Belknap Press_2000]

How do we judge whether an action is morally right or wrong? If an action is wrong, what reason does that give us not to do it? Why should we give such reasons priority over our other concerns and values? In this book, T. M. Scanlon offers new answers to these questions, as they apply to the central part of morality that concerns what we owe to each other. According to his contractualist view, thinking about right and wrong is thinking about what we do in terms that could be justified to others and that they could not reasonably reject. He shows how the special authority of conclusions about right and wrong arises from the value of being related to others in this way, and he shows how familiar moral ideas such as fairness and responsibility can be understood through their role in this process of mutual justification and criticism.
Scanlon bases his contractualism on a broader account of reasons, value, and individual well-being that challenges standard views about these crucial notions. He argues that desires do not provide us with reasons, that states of affairs are not the primary bearers of value, and that well-being is not as important for rational decision-making as it is commonly held to be. Scanlon is a pluralist about both moral and non-moral values. He argues that, taking this plurality of values into account, contractualism allows for most of the variability in moral requirements that relativists have claimed, while still accounting for the full force of our judgments of right and wrong.

_William E. Scheuerman____Between the Norm and the Exception: The Frankfurt School and the Rule of Law

[The MIT Press_1997]

Winner, 1996 Elaine and David Spitz Book Prize for the best book on liberal and democratic theory, Conference for the Study of Political Thought. Winner, 1994 First Book Prize, Foundations of Political Thought Organized Section, American Political Science Association.

Between the Norm and the Exception contributes historical insight to the ongoing debate over the future of the rule of law in welfare-state capitalist democracies. The core issue is whether or not society can offer its citizens welfare-state guarantees and still preserve the liberal vision of a norm-based legal system. Franz Neumann and Otto Kirchheimer, in an age dominated by Hitler and Stalin, sought to establish a sound theoretical basis for the “rule of law” ideal. As an outcome of their sophisticated understanding of the liberal political tradition, their writings suggest a theoretical missed opportunity, an alternative critical theory that might usefully be applied in understanding (and perhaps countering) the contemporary trend toward the deformalization of law.

_Gabriele Schwab____Derrida, Deleuze, Psychoanalysis

[Columbia University Press_2007]

Derrida, Deleuze, Psychoanalysis explores the critical relationship between psychoanalysis and the work of Derrida ( Speech and Phenomena, Of Grammatology, and his later writing on autoimmunity, cruelty, war, and human rights) and Deleuze ( A Thousand Plateaus, Anti-Oedipus, and more). Each essay illuminates a specific aspect of Derrida’s and Deleuze’s perspectives on psychoanalysis: the human-animal boundary; the child’s polymorphism; the face or mouth as constitutive of ethical responsibility toward others; the connections between pain and suffering and political resistance; the role of masochism in psychoanalytic thinking; the use of psychoanalytic secondary revision in theorizing film; and the political dimension of the unconscious. Placing a particular emphasis on liminal figurations of the human and challenges to discourses on free will, the essays explore shared concerns in Derrida and Deleuze with regard to history, politics, the political unconscious, and resistance. By addressing the need to overcome the split between the psychological and the political, Derrida, Deleuze, Psychoanalysis illuminates the ongoing relevance of psychoanalysis to critical interrogations of culture and politics.

_Charity Scribner____Requiem for Communism

[The MIT Press_2003]

In Requiem for Communism Charity Scribner examines the politics of memory in postindustrial literature and art. Writers and artists from Europe’s second world have responded to the last socialist crisis with works that range from sober description to melancholic fixation. This book is the first survey of this cultural field.

Today, as the cultures of Eastern and Western Europe merge into the Infobahn of late capitalism, the second world is being left behind. The European Union has pronounced obsolete the structures that once defined and linked industrial cities from Manchester to Karl-Marx-Stadt–the decaying factories and working collectives, the wasted ideals of state socialism and the welfare state. Marxist exponents of global empire see this historical turn as an occasion to eulogize “the lightness and joy of being communist.” But for many writers and artists on the left, the fallout of the last century’s socialist crisis calls for an elegy. This regret has prompted a proliferation of literary texts and artworks, as well as a boom in museum exhibitions that race to curate the wreckage of socialism and its industrial remnants. The best of these works do not take us back to the factory. Rather they look for something to take out of it: the intractable moments of solidarity among men and women that did not square with the market or the plan.

Requiem for Communism explores a selection of signal works. They include John Berger?s narrative trilogy Into Their Labors; Documenta, the German platform for contemporary art and ideas; Krzysztof Kieslowski’s cinema of mourning and Andrzej Wajda’s filmed chronicles of the Solidarity movement; the art of Joseph Beuys and Rachel Whiteread; the novels of Christa Wolf; and Leslie Kaplan’s antinostalgic memoir of women’s material labor in France. Sorting among the ruins of the second world, the critical minds of contemporary Europe aim to salvage both the remains of socialist ideals and the latent feminist potential that attended them.

_Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick____Epistemology of the Closet

[University of California Press_1991]

Since the late 1980s, queer studies and theory have become vital to the intellectual life of the U.S. This has been, to no small degree, due to the popularity of Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick’s critically acclaimed Epistemology of the Closet. Working from classic texts of European and American writers–including Herman Melville, Henry James, Marcel Proust, and Oscar Wilde–Sedgwick delineates a historical moment in which sexual identity became as important a demarcation of personhood as gender had been for centuries.
Sedgwick’s literary analysis, while provocative and often startling (you will never read Billy Budd or The Picture of Dorian Gray the same way again), is simply the basis for a larger project of examining and analyzing how the categories of “homosexual” and “heterosexual” continue to shape almost all aspects of contemporary thought. Epistemology of the Closet is a sometimes-dense work, but one filled with wit and empathy. Sedgwick writes with great intelligence and an eye for irony, but always makes clear that her theories and critical acumen are in the service of a politic that seeks to make the world a better and more humane place for everyone. An extraordinary book that reshapes how we think about literature, sexuality, and everyday life. –Michael Bronski

_Howard Selina/David Papineau____Svijest za početnike

[Naklada Jesenski i Turk_2002]


Mnogi smatraju da je svijest jedina velika zagonetka znanosti za koju još nema objašnjenja. Današnja znanost može razbiti atom, može riješiti tajnu života, ali još nije u stanju objasniti porijeklo svijesti i osjećaja svjesnosti. Tim se problemima bave ugledni mislioci iz mnogih znanstvenih disciplina, a u opticaju su mnoge teorije. Ipak, skeptici ne vjeruju da je u svijest moguće proniknuti uobičajenim znanstvenim tehnikama i postupcima, a ima i onih koji kažu da čovjek uopće nije u stanju razumjeti misterij svijesti.
Svijest za početnike pregledan je i jednostavan priručnik u kojem se iznose različite teorije svijesti i najnovija istraživanja tog fenomena.
Počinje tzv. “teškim pitanjem” filozofskog odnosa uma i tvari, potom tumači povijesno porijeklo tog problema i slijedi znanstvene pokušaje objašnjenja svijesti – npr. neuralnim darvinizmom ili kvantnom mehanikom. I dok vaša svijest (nesvjesno?) promišlja o svojoj svjesnosti, autor vas upoznaje s tajnom zombija, kineske sobe, duha u stroju i Schrodingerove mačke. To što one krajnje tajne svijesti ostaju nerješene, ne znači da se nećete osjećati samosvjesnima kad proniknete u sve teorije o svjesnom stanju.

_Richard Sennett____The Craftsman

[Yale University Press_2008]

Defining craftsmanship far more broadly than “skilled manual labor,” Richard Sennett maintains that the computer programmer, the doctor, the artist, and even the parent and citizen engage in a craftsman’s work. Craftsmanship names the basic human impulse to do a job well for its own sake, says the author, and good craftsmanship involves developing skills and focusing on the work rather than ourselves. In this thought-provoking book, one of our most distinguished public intellectuals explores the work of craftsmen past and present, identifies deep connections between material consciousness and ethical values, and challenges received ideas about what constitutes good work in today’s world.

The Craftsman engages the many dimensions of skill—from the technical demands to the obsessive energy required to do good work. Craftsmanship leads Sennett across time and space, from ancient Roman brickmakers to Renaissance goldsmiths to the printing presses of Enlightenment Paris and the factories of industrial London; in the modern world he explores what experiences of good work are shared by computer programmers, nurses and doctors, musicians, glassblowers, and cooks. Unique in the scope of his thinking, Sennett expands previous notions of crafts and craftsmen and apprises us of the surprising extent to which we can learn about ourselves through the labor of making physical things.

_Temporary Services____Prisoners’ Inventions


Imagine that your house spans six by nine feet, your mattress is just two inches thick, you are known to your neighbors by an identification number, and items most consider crucial to everyday existence are outlawed. How do inmates in prisons like this throughout the United States make such lives bearable? In 2001, the artists’ collective Temporary Services asked an incarcerated artist named Angelo to share with them the ways in which inmates adapt to their confinement. Angelo responded with over one hundred pages of meticulously detailed ink drawings and text. The resulting compilation, Prisoners’ Inventions, is a unique guide to prison life, covering subjects ranging from how to cook a grilled cheese sandwich in a locker to how to chill a soda using a toilet. Many of the documented items—such as cigarette lighters, condoms, even alarm clocks—are considered contraband, and Angelo includes anecdotes describing their creation and use. Already featured in Playboy, Harper’s, Le Monde, and on This American Life, Prisoners’ Inventions provides powerful testimony to life “on the inside” as it is endured by over two million individuals in the United States alone.

_Marc Shell____Money, Language, and Thought : Literary and Philosophic Economies from the Medieval to the Modern Era

[The Johns Hopkins University Press_1993]

In Money, Language, and Thought, Marc Shell explores the interactions between linguistic and economic production as they inform discourse from Chretien de Troyes to Heidegger. Close readings of works such as the medieval grail legends, The Merchant of Venice, Goethe’s Faust, and Poe’s “The Gold Bug” reveal how discourse has responded to the dissociation of symbol from thing characteristic of money, and how the development of increasingly symbolic currencies has involved changes in the meaning of meaning.
Pursuing his investigations into the modern era, Shell points out significant internalization of economic form in Kant, Hegel, and Heidegger. He demonstrates how literature and philosophy have been driven to account self-critically for a “money of the mind” that pervades all discourse, and concludes the book with a discomforting thesis about the cultural and political limits of literature and philosophy in the modern world.


_Marc Shell____Stutter

[Harvard University Press_2006]

One person can’t help stuttering. The other can’t help laughing. And in the way one bodily betrayal of better intentions mirrors the other, we find ourselves in the gray area where mind and body connect–and, at the damnedest moments, disconnect. In a book that explores the phenomenon of stuttering from its practical and physical aspects to its historical profile to its existential implications, Marc Shell plumbs the depths of this murky region between will and flesh, intention and expression, idea and word. Looking into the difficulties encountered by people who stutter–as do fifty million worldwide–Shell shows that, however solitary stutterers may be in their quest for normalcy, they share a kinship with many other speakers, both impeded and fluent.
Stutter takes us back to a time when stuttering was believed to be “diagnosis-induced,” then on to the complex mix of physical and psychological causes that were later discovered. Ranging from cartoon characters like Porky Pig to cultural icons like Marilyn Monroe, from Moses to Hamlet, Shell reveals how stuttering in literature plays a role in the formation of tone, narrative progression, and character. He considers such questions as: Why does stuttering disappear when the speaker chants? How does singing ease the verbal tics of Tourette’s Syndrome? How do stutterers cope with the inexpressible, the unspeakable?
Written by someone who has himself struggled with stuttering all his life, this provocative and wide-ranging book shows that stuttering has implications for myriad types of expression and helps to define what it means to be human.


_Marc Shell____The Economy of Literature

[The Johns Hopkins University Press_1993]

Why did coinage, tyranny, and philosophy develop in the same time and place? Marc Shell explores how both money and language give “worth” by providing a medium of exchange, how the development of money led to a revolution in philosophical thought and language, and how words transform mere commodities into symbols at once aesthetic and practical. Offering carefully documented interpretations of texts from Heraclitus, Herodotus, Sophocles, Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau, and Ruskin, Shell demonstrates the kinship between literary and economic theory and production, introduces new methods of analyzing texts, and shows how literary and philosophical fictions can help us understand the world in which we live.


_Mark Shiel____Screening the City


The city has long been an important location for filmmakers. Visually compelling and always modern, it is the perfect metaphor for man’s place in the contemporary world.
In this provocative collection of essays, films as diverse as The Man with the Movie Camera, Annie Hall, Street of Crocodiles, Boyz N the Hood, Three Colors Red, and Crash are examined in terms of the relationship between cinema and the changing urban experience in Europe and the United States since the early twentieth century. Peter Jelavich, for example, links the suppression of the creative, liberal Weimar Berlin in the 1931 film Berlin Alexanderplatz to the rise of the Nazi regime and the end of one of the great eras of modernist experimentation in German visual culture; Jessie Labov considers Kieslowski’s treatment of the Warsaw housing blok in Dekalog in terms of Solidarity’s strategy of resisting totalitarianism in 1980s Poland; Allan Siegel examines the motif of the city in a broad range of American and international cinema to demonstrate how film and society since the 1960s have been driven by the fading of mass political radicalism and the triumph of privatization and capital; Paula Massood uses the socially illuminating theories of Mikhail Bakhtin to examine the representation of the ghetto and urban underclass in recent African-American films such as Menace II Society; and Matthew Gandy examines the focus on disease in Todd Haynes’s [Safe] as a metaphor for social and spatial breakdown in contemporary Los Angeles.

_Clay Shirky____Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations

[Penguin Press HC, The_2008]

A revelatory examination of how the wildfirelike spread of new forms of social interaction enabled by technology is changing the way humans form groups and exist within them, with profound long-term economic and social effects-for good and for ill

A handful of kite hobbyists scattered around the world find each other online and collaborate on the most radical improvement in kite design in decades. A midwestern professor of Middle Eastern history starts a blog after 9/11 that becomes essential reading for journalists covering the Iraq war. Activists use the Internet and e-mail to bring offensive comments made by Trent Lott and Don Imus to a wide public and hound them from their positions. A few people find that a world-class online encyclopedia created entirely by volunteers and open for editing by anyone, a wiki, is not an impractical idea. Jihadi groups trade inspiration and instruction and showcase terrorist atrocities to the world, entirely online. A wide group of unrelated people swarms to a Web site about the theft of a cell phone and ultimately goads the New York City police to take action, leading to the culprit’s arrest.

With accelerating velocity, our age’s new technologies of social networking are evolving, and evolving us, into new groups doing new things in new ways, and old and new groups alike doing the old things better and more easily. You don’t have to have a MySpace page to know that the times they are a changin’. Hierarchical structures that exist to manage the work of groups are seeing their raisons d’tre swiftly eroded by the rising technological tide. Business models are being destroyed, transformed, born at dizzying speeds, and the larger social impact is profound.

One of the culture’s wisest observers of the transformational power of the new forms of tech-enabled social interaction is Clay Shirky, and Here Comes Everybody is his marvelous reckoning with the ramifications of all this on what we do and who we are. Like Lawrence Lessig on the effect of new technology on regimes of cultural creation, Shirky’s assessment of the impact of new technology on the nature and use of groups is marvelously broad minded, lucid, and penetrating; it integrates the views of a number of other thinkers across a broad range of disciplines with his own pioneering work to provide a holistic framework for understanding the opportunities and the threats to the existing order that these new, spontaneous networks of social interaction represent. Wikinomics, yes, but also wikigovernment, wikiculture, wikievery imaginable interest group, including the far from savory. A revolution in social organization has commenced, and Clay Shirky is its brilliant chronicler.

_Vandana Shiva____Biopiratstvo


Pred nama je knjiga ugledne, ako ne i najuglednije predstavnice “zelenog pokreta”.
Vandana Shiva, indijska fizičarka, socijalna i ekološka radikalna aktivistkinja, inspirirana učenjem Mahatme Gandhija, svoj status gurua izgrađuje godinama pišući u časopisima poput The Eco-logista, pišući knjige i nastupajući na javnim tribinama “zelenih”.
Dugotrajan je intelektualni marš Vandane Shive u obranu seljaka i biljaka, a protiv destruktivnosti industrijalizacije i dominacije tehnologije. Ona se bori protiv redukcionizma u znanosti tvrdeći: “Redukcionizam razara biološku raznolikost. On razlaže naš složen, različit dinamičan svijet na fragmentiranu, atomiziranu konstrukciju. On vodi intenzivnoj manipulaciji ekosistemom i vrstama kako bi povećao proizvodnju i profit malobrojnih i povlaštenih.”

Po vodećim novinama te popularnim i znanstvenim časopisima čitamo o nestašicama vode u Izraelu, Indiji, Kini, Boliviji, Kanadi, Meksiku, Gani i Sjedinjenim Državama. Dana 16. travnja 2001. na prvoj je stranici New York Timesa osvanula priča o nestašici vode u Texasu. Baš kao i Serageldin, novine su proricale: “Za Texas je sad tekuće zlato voda, a ne nafta….

_Richard Shusterman____Performing Live : Aesthetic Alternatives for the Ends of Art

[Cornell University Press_2000]

Current philosophies of art remain sadly dominated by visions of its end and lamentations of decline. Defining the very notions of art and the aesthetic as special products of Western modernity, they suggest that postmodern challenges to traditional high culture pose a devastating danger to art’s future. Richard Shusterman’s new book cuts through the seductive confusions of these views by tracing the earthy roots of aesthetic experience and showing how the recent flourishing of aesthetic forms outside modernity’s sacralized realm of fine art evince the persistent presence of an artistic impulse far deeper and more durable than the modernist moment.
Performing Live defends the abiding power of aesthetic experience by exploring its diverse roles, methods, and meanings, especially in fields marginal to traditional aesthetics but now most vibrantly alive in today’s culture and new media. Ranging from rap, techno, and country music to cinema, cyberspace and urban design, Shusterman develops his radical theory of “somaesthetics,” charting the complex network of bodily arts so prominent in contemporary life and self-styling. By blending concrete aesthetic analysis with insightful social critique, Shusterman, a well-known pragmatist philosopher, provides a rich menu and critical guide for today’s pursuit of the art of living.


_Kaja Silverman____World Spectators (Cultural Memory in the Present)

[Stanford University Press_2000]

Combining phenomenology and psychoanalysis in highly innovative ways, this book seeks to undo the binary opposition between appearance and Being that has been in place since Plato’s parable of the cave. It is, essentially, an essay on what could be called “world love,” the possibility and necessity for psychic survival of a profound and vital erotic investment by a human being in the cosmic surround. Here, the author takes her cue from Freud’s assertion that the “loss of reality” associated with psychosis is a function of a disturbance not in the capacity to reason or perceive, but rather in the capacity for world love, the libidinal and semiotic circuity by means of which such love actualizes itself.

In an implicit challenge to poststructuralist thought, the author claims that this love is always in response to a call issued by the world—that the world has, as it were, a vocation: its beauty ought to be seen. We must think of our own being-in-the world as a response to a primordial calling out to respond to this beauty. We are, the author suggests, at the very core of our being, summoned to what she terms world spectatorship.

Drawing on Heidegger’s phenomenological elaboration of care as the being distinctive of human being and the primarily Lacanian conceptualization of the language of desire specific to each human subject, this metapsychology of love attempts to integrate issues in the fields of psychoanalysis, philosophy, visual culture, art history, and literary and film studies.


_Stuart Sim____Derrida i kraj povijesti

[Naklada Jesenski i Turk_2001]


Što znači proglasiti “kraj povijesti”, kao što je to nekoliko mislilaca učinilo proteklih godina? Francis Fukuyama, američki politički teoretičar, izazvao je znatnu pomutnju svojom knjigom Kraj povijesti i posljednji čovjek (1992), u kojoj tvrdi kako su propast komunizma, te pobjeda liberalizma i ekonomije slobodnog tržišta, donijeli “kraj povijesti” kakvu poznajemo. Među njegovim kritičarima ističe se Jacques Derrida, čije su Aveti Marxa “dekonstruirale” ideju “kraja povijesti” i razotkrile je kao neku vrstu ideološke obmane, koja pokušava spasiti nedovršeni projekt demokracije.
Knjiga Derrida i kraj povijesti stavlja Derridu i njegovo odbacivanje Fukuyaminih tvrdnji o “kraju povijesti” u širi kontekst tradicije “endističke” misli. Kritika endizma koju provodi Derrida, naglašava se kao jedan od najvrednijih doprinosa postmodernističkoj kulturnoj debati – a također i kao najpristupačniji uvod u “dekonstrukciju”, kontroverzni filozofski pravac što ga je on pokrenuo.

_Stuart Sim____Lyotard i neljudsko

[Naklada Jesenski i Turk_2001]

Jean-François Lyotard u svojim kasnijim djelima otkriva svoje duboke strepnje vezane uz postojanje “neljudskog” – procesa kojim postajemo dehumanizirani pod utjecajem sila “razvoja” (naprednog kapitalizma) te, u ekstremnim slučajevima, čak i shvaćamo kako nas te sile teže zamijeniti računalnom tehnologijom. Lyotard strahuje za našu budućnost zbog moći koju posjeduje “tehno-znanost”, i poziva nas da se odupremo struji koja nas nosi prema “nehumanizmu”. Međutim, ukoliko pogledamo oko sebe, vidjet ćemo da je nehumanizam, na mnoge načine, već među nama – medicinska tehnologija, umjetna inteligencija i umjetni život samo su tri očita primjera.
Granica između čovjeka i tehnologije postaje sve mutnija, a mnogi su voljni braniti takav razvoj, smatrajući ga našom budućnošću. U ovoj raspravi Stuarta Sima na kušnji je samo poimanje što to znači biti čovjekom. Lyotardovo pitanje, “što ako neljudsko nastani sve ono “svojstveno” čovječanstvu?”, sadržava kritičke imolikacije presudne za sve nas.

_Alan Sinfield____Out on Stage : Lesbian and Gay Theater in the Twentieth Century

[Yale University Press_1999]

With the elegant sweep typical of his previous books (e.g., The Wilde Century, 1994), Alan Sinfield takes on an entire century of theater–gay theater seems almost redundant by the time he has finished–asserting not only that drama “has been a particular site for the formation of dissident sexual identities” but that, for over 100 years, theater and theatricality have been perceived and experienced as queer. Although scrupulously researched and shaped by a variety of poststructural approaches to literature and performance, Out on Stage avoids dryly academic prose, providing a lively and evocative exploration of a history rife with legends, eccentrics, and anecdotes. “It seems right to claim Maugham for gay drama,” writes Sinfield, for example. “He embodies so much that is brave and despicable about the pre-Stonewall queer man.” An excellent introduction to gay theater and a distinguished contribution to cultural studies at large. –Regina Marler

_Lydia Sklevicky____Konji, žene, ratovi

[Ženska infoteka_1996]

Iz predgovora:
Nakon dugotrajnog arhivskoga rada i proučavanja teorija – povijesne znanosti, socijalne povijesti i ženske povijesti, antropologije i etnologije, politologije i sociologije – Lydia Sklevicky je uspjela osmisliti pristup u kojem je pledirala za uspostavljanje dijaloškoga karaktera znanja. Dijalog među znanostima omogućio joj je percepciju rasta i pada AFŽ-a, ali i otkriće feminizma “u salonu”, među ženama srednjih slojeva i u intelektualnim krugovima, dugo podjednako prešućivanoga u poslijeratnom povjesničarskom i ideološkom diskursu. Bila je ponosna na svoje otkriće, a pojave zataškavanja tzv. salonskoga feminizma popratila je ironijom: “dakako, u neposrednoj blizini pozicije moći nalaze se prostrani pašnjaci ideologije”.
Lydia je ova istraživanja provodila u vrijeme kad se medijski i znanstveni prostor u bivšoj Jugoslaviji, pa čak i u Hrvatskoj počeo otvarati; odškrinuta vrata ona je širom rastvarala. Trudila se napisati “tekst koji nastoji rekonstruirati i analizirati dominantni govor moći”. U svojem zadnjem članku, o donekle marginalnoj profesiji etnologa, zalagala se stoga za angažman znanosti koji je danas, kao i onda, nadasve aktualan: “… društvena uloga svake znanosti, posebice društvenih znanosti, pored neprekidne skepse podrazumijeva i stalan kritički dijalog s nosiocima moći”.
Knjigu sam nastojala složiti tako da dođu do izražaja svi Lydijini talenti, podjednako kao i kvalitete: eros istraživačice i pedantni rad, teorijsko znanje i osobna imaginacija, sjajan stil pisca znanstvenih i publicističkih radova, fini ali ubojiti humor ili bolje reći ironija postmoderne.

_Peter Sloterdijk____Srdžba i vrijeme

[Izdanja Antibarbarus_2007]

Knjiga Petera Sloterdijka, autora knjiga “Sfera” i posebno “Kritike ciničkog uma”, nakon koje je postao najčitaniji njemački filozof nakon Drugog svjetskog rata, “SRDŽBA I VRIJEME” razmatra reflekse ponašanja od antičkog poimanja gnjeva, srdžbe, ljutnje u kontekstu srdžbe/ljutnje bogova do implikacija u suvremenim zbivanjima, te posljedice mržnje – borbu, nasilje i agresiju.

Nepogrešiva karakteristika Sloterdijkovih mišljenja i pisanja je način na koji smješta tekuća pitanja u povijest – tako uspijeva redefinirati sadašnju, trenutnu ‘condition humaine’, vizualizirati ju iz dosad nepoznate perspektive, i pronaći dokaze za neočekivana ili čak i neželjena povezivanja, pokazujući da srdžba nije odušak za frustracije već antropološka konstanta.

“Srdžba i vrijeme” također je žustra knjiga, knjiga koja raspravlja o stvarima koje se tiču doslovno svakoga živog čovjeka. Što se zapravo događa, što odlučuje o našj sudbini, kako shvatiti vlastite porive, što očekivati u budućnosti, kako objasniti velike zločine 20. stoljeća? Sve to u stalnom opovrgavanju konvencionalnih istina.

_Peter Sloterdijk____Gottes Eifer

[Verlag der Weltreligionen im Insel Verlag_2007]

Den drei in ihrer Wurzel abrahamitischen, monotheistischen Religionen — Judentum, Christentum und Islam — ist, neben allem, was sie ganz zweifellos voneinander trennt und ihre Glaubensinhalte unterscheidet, eines gemein: der grundsätzlich „eifernde“ und „einwertige“ Charakter ihres in der einen oder anderen Ausprägung messianisch-aktivistischen Wahrheitsanspruches. Die Konkurrenz dieser einwertigen Wahrheitsansprüche muss, wie der Sprachspieler Sloterdijk ebenso überzeugend wie kenntnisreich darlegt, zwangsläufig in eine konfrontative Grundkonstellation führen, die aufgrund der ihr zugrundeliegenden Triebdynamik nur schwer zu kontrollieren sei.
Da andererseits Religion ganz offenbar zu den anthropologischen Grundkonstanten gerechnet werden muss, besteht die sich aus dieser explosiven Konstellation für die Kulturwissenschaft ergebende Frage darin, ob und gegebenenfalls wie die Religionen auf einen gemeinsamen „zivilisatorischen Weg“ geführt werden können. Auf diesem allein nämlich ließe sich nicht nur das ihnen innewohnende Konfliktpotential einhegen, sondern, wenn überhaupt, so böte sich zugleich auch nur hier die Chance, das geistige Potential der Religionen zu heben und für die zivilisatorische Entwicklung nutzbar zu machen.
Mit Gottes Eifer hat Sloterdijk nicht nur eine überzeugende Fortführung seiner in Zorn und Zeit vorgetragenen Religionsphilosophie vorgelegt, der Band ist zugleich auch ein gelungener Auftakt für das Programm des neuen „Verlags der Weltreligionen“. — Andreas Vierecke

_Marc A. Smith____Communities in Cyberspace


Editors Smith and Kollock have gathered contributors with a variety of viewpoints to examine both the “legitimacy” of community in cyberspace and to question how it operates. While the authors do conclude that communities in cyberspace are real communities, they explore the sometimes surprising ways in which cybercommunities differ from their geographically based counterparts.
There are four primary issues probed here: the question of online identity in an environment where individuals cannot be seen; the question of social order and control in what is, at least on the surface, a largely anarchic environment; the structure and dynamics of online communities; and the cybercommunity as a foundation for collective action.
There’s much here to provoke long discussions both online and off, such as the argument that the screen doesn’t eliminate the consideration of racial identity so much as it allows for the development of nonvisual criteria for people to judge (or misjudge) the races of others. This book was compiled to be used in the college classroom, although it’s not jargon laden or difficult to read. It will appeal to anyone who is professionally or individually involved with virtual communities. –Elizabeth Lewis


_Neil Smith____The New Urban Frontier: Gentrification and the Revanchist City


Why have so many central and inner cities been radically revamped in the last three decades, converting urban decay into new chic? Will the process continue in the twenty-first century or has it ended? The New Urban Frontier challenges the conventional wisdom, which holds gentrification to be the simple outcome of changing middle-class tastes and a growing demand for urban living, and emphasizes instead gentrification as part of a much larger shift in the political economy and culture of the late twentieth century.

Documenting in gritty detail the conflicts that gentrification brings to the new urban ‘frontiers’, Neil Smith explores the interconnections of urban policy, patterns of investment, eviction, and homelessness. The failure of liberal urban policy and the end of the 1980s’ financial boom have made the end-of-the-century city a darker and more dangerous place. Public policy and the private market are conspiring against minorities, working people, the poor, and the homeless as never before. In the emerging revanchist city, gentrification has become part of this policy of revenge.


_Ann Smock____What Is There to Say?

[University of Nebraska Press_2003]

Herman Melville’s Bartleby, asked to account for himself, “would prefer not to.” Tongue-tied Billy Budd, urged to defend his innocence, responds with a murderous blow. The Bavard, by Louis-René des Forêts, concerns a man whose power to speak is replaced by an inability to shut up. In these and other literary examples a call for speech throws the possibility of speaking into doubt. What Is There to Say? uses the ideas of Maurice Blanchot to clarify puzzling works by Melville, des Forêts, and Beckett. Ann Smock’s energetic readings of texts about talking, listening, and recording cast an equally welcome light on Blanchot’s paradoxical thought.

[Common Courage Press_1999]

Media critic Norman Solomon has done it again. In this latest collection of columns, he details the most recent excesses and failures of America’s self-censoring mainstream media, and brings you the real story on issues like:
*The irony of the Zippergate President preaching abstinence to poor women and putting millions of dollars into “chastity education” programs
*The Orwellian logic behind calling bombings by Third World countries “terrorism,” while similar bombings by the US are righteous “strikes against terror”
*”Media Scenes We’d Like to See” — fantasies as appealing as they are unlikely, which include a vision of Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings donating their fortunes to a trust fund for independent journalism and vowing to tell the truth even it gets them fired.
From the relentless pro-corporate spin of daily news to the media’s persistent lack of diversity, Solomon covers it all.


_Susan Sontag____Prizori tuđeg stradanja


Prije dvadeset i pet godina, Susan Sontag, jedna od najcjenjenijih američkih i svjetskih intelektualki, u svojem je ogledu On Photography upozorila kako su mediji pretvorili slike užasa i okrutnosti u jedno od općih mjesta naše svakodnevice. Jesu li gledatelji otupjeli ili ih izloženost prizorima tuđe patnje uzbuđuje? Kako to djeluje na njihovo poimanje stvarnosti i što točno znači suosjećati sa stradanjima ljudi u ratnim područjima dalekih zemalja?
U Prizorima tuđeg stradanja, svojoj posljednjoj knjizi, Sontag se vraća tim pitanjima i angažirano i uvjerljivo raspravlja o povijesti medijskog predstavljanja ratova i nesreća. Kako se osjećamo gledajući čuvene Goyine Strahote rata i fotografske dokumente Američkog građanskog rata, linčovanja Crnaca na jugu Sjedinjenih Američkih Država, nacističkih koncentracijskih logora ili televizijskih slika iz Hrvatske, Bosne, Ruande, Izraela i Palestine i New Yorka 11. rujna – pobuđuju li ti prizori u nama apatiju ili sućut, negodovanje ili nasilnost? 
Nema jednoznačnih odgovora, ali kad bi ih bilo, sugestija Susan Sontag je uvijek “djelovati”. “Samilost je nestabilan osjećaj. Potrebno ju je prevesti u djelovanje ili će izblijedjeti. Pitanje je što učiniti s potaknutim osjećajima, s priopćenim spoznajama.”

_Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak____Death of a Discipline

[Columbia University Press_2003]

For almost three decades, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak has been ignoring the standardized “rules” of the academy and trespassing across disciplinary boundaries. Today she remains one of the foremost figures in the study of world literature and its cultural consequences. In this new book she declares the death of comparative literature as we know it and sounds an urgent call for a “new comparative literature,” in which the discipline is given new life — one that is not appropriated and determined by the market.
In the era of globalization, when mammoth projects of world literature in translation are being undertaken in the United States, how can we protect the multiplicity of languages and literatures at the university? Spivak demonstrates how critics interested in social justice should pay close attention to literary form and offers new interpretations of classics such as Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own. Through close readings of texts not only in English, French, and German but also in Arabic and Bengali, Spivak practices what she preaches.

“[Spivak] pioneered the study in literary theory of non-Western women.” — Edward W. Said
“She has probably done more long-term political good, in pioneering feminist and post-colonial studies within global academia, than almost any of her theoretical colleagues.” — Terry Eagleton
“A celebrity in academia… create[s] a stir wherever she goes.” — The New York Times


_Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak____A Critique of Postcolonial Reason: Toward a History of the Vanishing Present

[Harvard University Press_1999]

Are the “culture wars” over? When did they begin? What is their relationship to gender struggle and the dynamics of class? In her first full treatment of postcolonial studies, a field that she helped define, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, one of the world’s foremost literary theorists, poses these questions from within the postcolonial enclave.
“We cannot merely continue to act out the part of Caliban,” Spivak writes; and her book is an attempt to understand and describe a more responsible role for the postcolonial critic. A Critique of Postcolonial Reason tracks the figure of the “native informant” through various cultural practices–philosophy, history, literature–to suggest that it emerges as the metropolitan hybrid. The book addresses feminists, philosophers, critics, and interventionist intellectuals, as they unite and divide. It ranges from Kant’s analytic of the sublime to child labor in Bangladesh. Throughout, the notion of a Third World interloper as the pure victim of a colonialist oppressor emerges as sharply suspect: the mud we sling at certain seemingly overbearing ancestors such as Marx and Kant may be the very ground we stand on.
A major critical work, Spivak’s book redefines and repositions the postcolonial critic, leading her through transnational cultural studies into considerations of globality.

_Barbara Maria Stafford____Good Looking: Essays on the Virtue of Images

[The MIT Press_1998]

In a world with an ever-increasing number of visual images bombarding our every moment, art historian Barbara Maria Stafford wants readers to face the future with a more practiced and educated visual vocabulary. In Good Looking, Stafford begins by positioning contemporary culture in historical context. She compares the current fin-de-siécle anxiety and excitement about changing modes of communication and transfer of information with that of the Enlightenment. She likens 18th-century wonder cabinets to virtual reality and traces the complications of seeing versus believing to a history of mistrust of visual media. The 12 essays that comprise the book focus on visual information’s continued low status in culture even as its impact continually increases. In the hopes of beginning to change this, Stafford organized a symposium in 1993, “Imaging the Body: Art and Science in Modern Culture.” She “wanted to find out if past modes of visualizing the invisible physical and mental processes had any current relevance.” In other words, it might be wise to take a look at our inherited relationships to what we learn and understand through visuals because, thanks in part to the Internet, this medium is becoming even more pervasive. –Jennifer Cohen

_Henry Staten____Eros in Mourning: From Homer to Lacan

[The Johns Hopkins University Press_2001]

Eros in Mourning begins with a reading of the Iliad that shows how Homer, not yet influenced by the ideology of transcendence, analyzes the structure of unassuageable mourning in a way that is as up-to-date as the latest poststructuralism. Then, in readings of Dante, Hamlet, La Princess de Clèves, Heart of Darkness, and Lacan, Staten depicts the “thanato-erotic” hysteria that is set off by the specter of the dead and decomposing body that is also the body of sexual love and which, in the “transcendentalizing” tradition, is more female than male. Yet, St. John, certain troubadours, and Milton offer glimpses of a more affirmative relation to “eros in mourning.”


_Yannis Stavrakakis____Lacan and the Political


Yannis Stavrakakis moves beyond the standard discussion of the Lacanian concept of the subject in a socio-political context, toward an analysis of the objective side of human experience. In the first part of Lacan and the Political, the author highlights Lacan’s innovative understanding of the sociopolitical field and offers a straightforward and systematic assessment of the importance of Lanca’s categories and theoretical construction for concrete political analysis. The second half of he book applies Lacanian theory to specific examples of widely discussed political issues, such as Green ideology, the question of democracy and the hegemony of advertising in contemporary culture. Lacan and the Political demonstrates the immense potential of Lacanian thought to invigorate our consideration of the political and will be of interest to all who seek to further their understanding of modern ideological discourse in politics.

_Isabelle Stengers____The Invention of Modern Science

[University of Minnesota Press_2000]

Philosophy of Science
Isabelle Stengers The Invention of Modern Science Translated by Daniel W. Smith
A proposal for better understanding the nature of scientific endeavor from a major European thinker.
The so-called exact sciences have always claimed to be different from other forms of knowledge. How are we to evaluate this assertion? Should we try to identify the criteria that seem to justify it? Or, following the new model of the social study of the sciences, should we view it as a simple belief? The Invention of Modern Science proposes a fruitful way of going beyond these apparently irreconcilable positions, that science is either “objective” or “socially constructed.” Instead, suggests Isabelle Stengers, one of the most important and influential philosophers of science in Europe, we might understand the tension between scientific objectivity and belief as a necessary part of science, central to the practices invented and reinvented by scientists.
“Stengers has chosen to look for a touchstone distinguishing good science from bad not in epistemology but in ontology, not in the word but in the world.” Bruno Latour
Isabelle Stengers is associate professor of philosophy at the Free University of Brussels. She received the grand prize for philosophy from the Academie Franaise in 1993, and is the author of numerous books, including Power and Invention (Minnesota, 1997).
Daniel W. Smith has translated many books, including several works by the philosopher Gilles Deleuze.

_Neal Stephenson____Cryptonomicon

[Arrow Books Ltd_2000]


_Neal Stephenson____In the Beginning…was the Command Line

[Harper Perennial_1999]

Neal Stephenson, author of the sprawling and engaging Cryptonomicon, has written a manifesto that could be spoken by a character from that brilliant book. Primarily, In the Beginning … Was the Command Line discusses the past and future of personal computer operating systems. “It is the fate of manufactured goods to slowly and gently depreciate as they get old,” he writes, “but it is the fate of operating systems to become free.” While others in the computer industry express similarly dogmatic statements, Stephenson charms the reader into his way of thinking, providing anecdotes and examples that turn the pages for you.
Stephenson is a techie, and he’s writing for an audience of coders and hackers in Command Line. The idea for this essay began online, when a shortened version of it was posted on Slashdot.org. The book still holds some marks of an e-mail flame gone awry, and some tangents should have been edited to hone his formidable arguments. But unlike similar writers who also discuss technical topics, he doesn’t write to exclude; readers who appreciate computing history (like Dealers of Lightning or Fire in the Valley) can easily step into this book.
Stephenson tackles many myths about industry giants in this volume, specifically Apple and Microsoft. By now, every newspaper reader has heard of Microsoft’s overbearing business practices, but Stephenson cuts to the heart of new issues for the software giant with a finely sharpened steel blade. Apple fares only a little better as Stephenson (a former Mac user himself) highlights the early steps the company took to prepare for a monopoly within the computer market–and its surprise when this didn’t materialize. Linux culture gets a thorough–but fair–skewering, and the strengths of BeOS are touted (although no operating system is nearly close enough to perfection in Stephenson’s eyes).
As for the rest of us, who have gladly traded free will and an intellectual understanding of computers for a clutter-free, graphically pleasing interface, Stephenson has thoughts to offer as well. He fully understands the limits nonprogrammers feel in the face of technology (an example being the “blinking 12″ problem when your VCR resets itself). Even so, within Command Line he convincingly encourages us as a society to examine the metaphors of technology–simplifications that aren’t really much simpler–that we greedily accept. –Jennifer Buckendorff


_Jonathan Sterne/Jonathan Sterne____The Audible Past: Cultural Origins of Sound Reproduction

[Duke University Press_2002]

The Audible Past explores the cultural origins of sound reproduction. It describes a distinctive sound culture that gave birth to the sound recording and the transmission devices so ubiquitous in modern life. With an ear for the unexpected, scholar and musician Jonathan Sterne uses the technological and cultural precursors of telephony, phonography, and radio as an entry point into a history of sound in its own right. Sterne studies the constantly shifting boundary between phenomena organized as “sound” and “not sound.” In The Audible Past, this history crisscrosses the liminal regions between bodies and machines, originals and copies, nature and culture, and life and death.

Blending cultural studies and the history of communication technology, Sterne follows modern sound technologies back through a historical labyrinth. Along the way, he encounters capitalists and inventors, musicians and philosophers, embalmers and grave robbers, doctors and patients, deaf children and their teachers, professionals and hobbyists, folklorists and tribal singers. The Audible Past tracks the connections between the history of sound and the defining features of modernity: from developments in medicine, physics, and philosophy to the tumultuous shifts of industrial capitalism, colonialism, urbanization, modern technology, and the rise of a new middle class.

A provocative history of sound, The Audible Past challenges theoretical commonplaces such as the philosophical privilege of the speaking subject, the visual bias in theories of modernity, and static descriptions of nature. It will interest those in cultural studies, media and communication studies, the new musicology, and the history of technology.


_Bernard Stiegler____Technics and Time, 1: The Fault of Epimetheus (Meridian: Crossing Aesthetics)

[Stanford University Press_1998]

What is a technical object? At the beginning of Western philosophy, Aristotle contrasted beings formed by nature, which had within themselves a beginning of movement and rest, and man-made objects, which did not have the source of their own production within themselves. This book, the first of three volumes, revises the Aristotelian argument and develops an innovative assessment whereby the technical object can be seen as having an essential, distinct temporality and dynamics of its own.

The Aristotelian concept persisted, in one form or another, until Marx, who conceived of the possibility of an evolution of technics. Lodged between mechanics and biology, a technical entity became a complex of heterogeneous forces. In a parallel development, while industrialization was in the process of overthrowing the contemporary order of knowledge as well as contemporary social organization, technology was acquiring a new place in philosophical questioning. Philosophy was for the first time faced with a world in which technical expansion was so widespread that science was becoming more and more subject to the field of instrumentality, with its ends determined by the imperatives of economic struggle or war, and with its epistemic status changing accordingly. The power that emerged from this new relation was unleashed in the course of the two world wars.

Working his way through the history of the Aristotelian assessment of technics, the author engages the ideas of a wide range of thinkers—Rousseau, Husserl, and Heidegger, the paleo-ontologist Leroi-Gourhan, the anthropologists Vernant and Detienne, the sociologists Weber and Habermas, and the systems analysts Maturana and Varela.

_Joseph Stiglitz____Globalizacija i dvojbe koje izaziva


Nobelovac Joseph Stiglitz u svojoj je britkoj kritici globalizacijskog uma razotkrio mnoge naizgled nelogične i nerazumljive postupke i događaje koji su se zbili u posljednjih petnaestak godina pod zajedničkim nazivnikom globalizacije, tranzicije, liberalizacije. Uspio je, a nijednom začudo, nije izrijekom spomenuo Hrvatsku.
Stiglitz se uglavnom bavio nesavršenostima slobodnog tržišta, temama nedovoljnog rasta i svima dobro poznatim procesima kao što su: galopirajuća inflacija, gubitak osobne štednje stanovništva, spašavanje posrnulih banaka novcem iz budžeta, dvoznamenkasta nezaposlenost, lihvarske kamate, bankrot velikih poduzeća, restrikcije socijalnih davanja, rezanje troškova zdravstva, zanemarivanje školstva i znanosti, tečajna politika koja potiče uvoz roba i izvoz kapitala, izumiranje srednje klase, osiromašenje umirovljenika, ali u svjetskim razmjerima. 
Tko je kriv za pogrešne prosudbe koje ne samo da nisu spriječile nego su ponegdje čak i izazvale ili potakle ekonomske krize, tranzicijski fijasko, spekulativne napade na tečajeve pojedinih valuta, od poharanog Dalekog istoka preko opljačkanih zemalja bivšeg socijalističkog lagera do nemirne Južne Amerike i zaboravljene Afrike.
Financijski centri svijeta preko Međunarodnog Monetarnog fonda već desetljećima diktiraju globalnu ekonomsku politiku no posljednjih petnaestak godina sa suptilno promijenjenim mandatom. Cilj njihovih rigoroznih naputaka je ostvariti povrat rizičnih ulaganja razvijenih zemalja pa makar i po cijenu općeg siromaštva u zemljama dužnicima, iako bi se isti iznos, smatra Stiglitz, mogao vratiti putem poticanja rasta, a spreman je to i dokazati primjerima iz prakse, kroz ekonomske politike zemalja koje nisu slušale direktive MMF-a.

_Joseph E. Stiglitz____Globalization and Its Discontents

[W. W. Norton & Company_2002]

Due to massive media coverage, many people are familiar with the controversy and organized resistance that globalization has generated around the world, yet explaining what globalization actually means in practice is a complicated task. For those wanting to learn more, this book is an excellent place to start. An experienced economist, Joseph Stiglitz had a brilliant career in academia before serving for four years on President Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisors and then three years as chief economist and senior vice president of the World Bank. His book clearly explains the functions and powers of the main institutions that govern globalization–the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization–along with the ramifications, both good and bad, of their policies. He strongly believes that globalization can be a positive force around the world, particularly for the poor, but only if the IMF, World Bank, and WTO dramatically alter the way they operate, beginning with increased transparency and a greater willingness to examine their own actions closely. Of his time at the World Bank, he writes, “Decisions were made on the basis of what seemed a curious blend of ideology and bad economics, dogma that sometimes seemed to be thinly veiling special interests…. Open, frank discussion was discouraged–there was no room for it.” The book is not entirely critical, however: “Those who vilify globalization too often overlook its benefits,” Stiglitz writes, explaining how globalization, along with foreign aid, has improved the living standards of millions around the world. With this clear and balanced book, Stiglitz has contributed significantly to the debate on this important topic. –Shawn Carkonen

_Susan Stryker/Stephen Whittle____The Transgender Reader


Although the term “transgender” itself has achieved familiarity only within the past decade, this authoritative collection of articles demonstrates that the study of behaviors, bodies, and subjective identities which contest common Eurocentric notions of gender has a history stretching back at least to the early 20th century.
Transgender studies is the latest area of academic inquiry to grow out of the exciting nexus of queer theory, feminist studies, and the history of sexuality. Because transpeople challenge our most fundamental assumptions about the relationship between bodies, desire, and identity, the field is both fascinating and contentious. The Transgender Studies Reader puts between two covers fifty influential texts with new introductions by the editors that, taken together, document the evolution of transgender studies in the English-speaking world. By bringing together the voices and experience of transgender individuals, doctors, psychologists, and academically-based theorists, this volume will be a foundational text for the transgender community, transgender studies, and related queer theory.

_Alain Supiot____Homo Juridicus: On the Anthropological Function of the Law


A provocative investigation of how law shapes everyday life.

In this groundbreaking work, French legal scholar Alain Supiot examines the relationship of society to legal discourse. He argues that religion and the state no longer underwrite fundamental values, and consequently that the law functions as the sole arbiter of human relations. Supiot’s exploration of the development of the “legal subject”—the individual as formed through a dense web of contracts and laws—is set to become a classic work of social theory.

Nakon svjetskog uspjeha svoje prve knjige Sedam Evinih kćeri, (2001.) koja je na temelju analize mitohondrijske DNK pokazala da je moguće doprijeti do sedam glavnih pretkinja cjelokupnog čovječanstva, Bryan Sykes je 2003. napisao jednako uzbudljivu i provokativnu knjigu o muškoj genetičkoj povijesti.
Sjajno napisana, s obiljem zabavnih primjera iz svakodnevice, povijesti, sociologije i antropologije, ova jedinstvena priča o Y kromosomu, opustošenom, ranjivom nositelju muškosti, o njegovoj prošlosti i njegovoj budućnosti tiče se svih nas. Čini se da vjekovna bitka među spolovima zapravo ima vrlo neizvjestan ishod, a prastara poslovica o ljubavi kao bojnom polju dobiva posve novi prizvuk.

_Peter Szendy____Listen: A History of Our Ears

[Fordham University Press_2007]

In this intimate meditation on listening, Peter Szendy examines what the role of the listener is, and has been, through the centuries. The role of the composer is clear, as is the role of the musician, but where exactly does the listener stand in relation to the music s/he listens to? What is the responsibility of the listener? Does a listener have any rights, as the author and composer have copyright? Szendy explains his love of musical arrangement (since arrangements allow him to listen to someone listening to music), and wonders whether it is possible in other ways to convey to others how we ourselves listen to music. How can we share our actual hearing with others?Along the way, he examines the evolution of copyright laws as applied to musical works and takes us into the courtroom to examine different debates on what we are and aren’t allowed to listen to, and to witness the fine line between musical borrowing and outright plagiarism. Finally, he examines the recent phenomenon of DJs and digital compilations, and wonders how technology has affected our habits of listening and has changed listening from a passive exercise to an active one, whereby one can jump from track to track or play only selected pieces.
