Le conflit des perceptions by Elsa Boyer( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans cet essai consacré à la question de la perception virtuelle, l'auteure démontre, à la lumière des pensées de J. Derrida, d'E. Husserl et de B. Stiegler, que les pratiques artistiques et vidéoludiques contemporaines amènent à repenser fondamentalement la notion de perception. ©Electre 2017
Sois mon corps une lecture contemporaine de la domination et de la servitude chez Hegel by Judith Butler( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commonwealth by Michael Hardt( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in French and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now, with Commonwealth, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri conclude the trilogy begun with Empire and continued in Multitude, proposing an ethics of freedom for living in our common world and articulating a possible constitution for our common wealth. Drawing on scenarios from around the globe and elucidating the themes that unite them, Hardt and Negri focus on the logic of institutions and the models of governance adequate to our understanding of a global commonwealth. They argue for the idea of the "common" to replace the opposition of private and public and the politics predicated on that opposition. Ultimately, they articulate the theoretical bases for what they call "governing the revolution." Though this book functions as an extension and a completion of a sustained line of Hardt and Negri's thought, it also stands alone and is entirely accessible to readers who are not familiar with the previous works. It is certain to appeal to, challenge, and enrich the thinking of anyone interested in questions of politics and globalization."--Jacket
Neko café by Elsa Boyer( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dans une ville qui n'en finit plus de trembler, les existences se détraquent. Les robots ne résoudront rien, leurs carcasses métalliques jonchent les plages. Ce sont les chats qui guériront et les guérisons seront minuscules. On s'évapore au milieu de l'après-midi, vidé de toute mémoire et à deux pas de chez soi. Le temps ne file plus droit, les hantises fusent, on se découvre spectre d'un autre, revenant sans souvenir. Les fantômes se plantent dans les corps des vivants, envahissent un oeil ou se fichent entre les omoplates."--Back cover

The sex lives of saints : an erotics of ancient hagiography by Virginia Burrus( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication frames historical, theological, and theoretical issues, with particular reference to the work of Michel Foucault and Georges Bataille, David Halperin and Geoffrey Harpham, Leo Bersani and Jean Baudrillard. The author subsequently proceeds through close, performative readings of the earliest Lives of Saints, mostly dating to the late fourth and early fifth centuries - Jerome's Lives of Paul, Malchus, Hilarion, and Paula; Gregory of Nyssa's Life of Macrina; Augustine's portrait of Monica; Sulpicius Severus's Life of Martin; and the slightly later Lives of so-called harlot saints. The publication not only offers new readings of both sex and sanctity but also provides insight for ongoing feminist discussions of gender, moving beyond questions about women's social roles to consideration of the gendered subjectivities constructed and deconstructed within the erotic economies of ancient hagiographical literature

Voir les jeux vidéo : perception, construction, fiction( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couverture indique : "Le jeu vidéo ne se confond pas seulement avec l'expérience ludique à laquelle il reste indissociablement lié : des histoires commencent à en être tracées ; des expositions lui sont consacrées ; la sociologique, la psychologie, la philosophie s'en emparent. Il est pourtant une approche que l'on trouve rarement mise en oeuvre, et que ce livre aimerait explorer : une approche esthétique qui privilégie l'image, ses composantes visuelles et sonores, ses constructions d'espaces et de temps, ses réseaux d'évocations narratives. C'est parce qu'il ne s'agit pas d'une simple affaire de reconnaissance d'imagerie ou de graphismes, mais d'une production d'un régime d'image qui bouleverse nos modes de perception, qu'il faut "voir les jeux vidéos", que l'on soit joueur ou non."
Âne dans la mer, face à nous : Pinocchio et poèmes by Jim Dine( Book )

Phénoménologie et perception artificielle la synchronisation en conflit by Elsa Boyer( )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nowadays, we are confronted with industrial objects like virtual reality or, on a more daily basis, video games, that cause a shift not so much in the perceptual objects but in the perception itself. We suggest naming this shift and the issues it raises " artificial perception ". Since the artificiality of this perception does not describe an object but the very structure of perception, it confronts husserlian phenomenology, more precisely its distinction between presentation (Gegenwärtigung) and representation (Vergegenwärtigung), with an impossibility : to ponder on the relation between perception, industrial object and imgination. Indeed, what could the husserlian phenomenology say about this relation when it disqualifies the problem of the industrial object and sets down an untouchable separation between presentation and representation? What can we say about artificial perception apart from a denunciation of the merging between reality and imagination, of the takeover of imagination by industrial prosthesis still more impressive? Here we find something to ponder about, a chance of unfolding the richness of husserlian phenomenology by broaching it through its posterity (Derrida, Stiegler, Richir) and working on precise cases
