Marx Reloaded( Visual )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and German and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A cultural documentary that uses some of the central ideas of 19th century German socialist and philosopher Karl Marx to try to make sense of the global financial crisis of 2008-09. This crisis prompted the U.S. government to spend more than 1 trillion dollars in order to rescue its banking system from financial meltdown. But can the largest financial losses in history really be put down to the natural risks and uncertainties of the free market? Or is there another explanation as to why the crisis happened and what its implications are for the future of our society, our economy, for our whole way of life?
Alain Badiou : a critical introduction by Jason Barker( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Badiou's theory] enacts a return to full-blown philosophy that strikes as a thunder into the morass of postmodernist sophisms and platitudes. ... [Badiou] aims at the very heart of politically correct 'radical' intellectuals, undermining the foundations of their mode of life!' Slavoj Zizek, Professor at the Institute of Sociology, University of Ljubljana Alain Badiou is rapidly emerging as one of the most radical and influential philosophers of our time. Badiou opposes the contemporary reduction of philosophy to nothing but a matter of language and premature announcements of the end of philosophy and thus sets himself against both analytic and continental modes of philosophy. Setting the traditional platonic concerns of philosophy, truth and being, against the modern sophists of postmodernism, Badiou has articulated a powerful systematic philosophy with profound ethical and political consequences. This is the first introduction to Alain Badiou in English and is especially timely as the number of Badiou's works in translation is rapidly increasing and his star continues to rise. Giving a clear overview of Badiou's work and the intellectual and political context from which it emerges, Jason Barker's book is set to become the standard work on Badiou for many years to come
Metapolitics by Alain Badiou( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Badiou indicts this approach, which reduces politics to a matter of opinion, thus eliminating any of its truly radical and emancipatory possibilities. Against this intellectual tradition, Badiou proposes instead the consideration of politics in terms of the production of truth and the affirmation of equality. He demands that the question of a possible "political truth" be separated from any notion of consensus or public opinion, and that political action be rethought in terms of the complex process that binds discussion to decision. Starting from this analysis, Badiou critically examines the thought of anthropologist and political theorist Sylvain Lazarus, Jacques Ranciere's writings on workers' history and democratic dissensus, the role of the subject in Althusser, as well as the concept of democracy and the link between truth and justice. -- Pubisher description
