Maidens, meal, and money : capitalism and the domestic community by Claude Meillassoux( Book )

134 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For years, Matthew Greene and Daniel Rosen have enjoyed a quiet domestic life together in Northampton, Massachusetts. Opposites in many ways, they have grown together and made their relationship work. But when they learn that Daniel's twin brother and sister-in-law have been killed in a bombing in Jerusalem, their lives are suddenly, utterly transformed. In dealing with their families and the need to make a decision about who will raise the deceased couple's two children, both Matthew and Daniel are confronted with challenges that strike at the very heart of their relationship. What is Matthew's place in an extended family that does not completely accept him or the commitment he and Daniel have made? How do Daniel's questions about his identity as a Jewish man affect his life as a gay American? Tensions only intensify when they learn that the deceased parents wanted Matthew and Daniel to adopt the children--six-year-old Gal, and baby Noam. The impact this instant new family has on Matthew, Daniel, and their relationship is subtle and heartbreaking, yet not without glimmers of hope. They must learn to reinvent and redefine their bond in profound, sometimes painful ways. What kind of parents can these two men really be? How does a family become strong enough to stay together and endure? And are there limits to honesty or commitment--or love?"--

Anthropologie économique des Gouro de Cóte d'Ivoire; de l'économie de subsistance à l'agriculture commerciale by Claude Meillassoux( Book )

49 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in French and Spanish and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On appelle Gouro les populations patrilinéaires et segmentaires installées le long de la branche ouest du V baoulé, populations qui, comme la plupart de celles situées dans la zone forestière, procèdent à la reconversion de leur agriculture vivrière en une agriculture de profit. À partir de ce cas désormais classique, l'auteur s'attache à montrer comment les rapports sociaux noués autrefois dans le cadre d'une économie d'autosubsistance, après s'être étendus à des ensembles territoriaux débordant la cellule domestique, s'altèrent 1 j ou disparaissent aux contacts successifs des peuples marchands de la savane, de la société coloniale, puis de l'économie de profit. L'unité organique de ces différents systèmes qui s'interpénètrent, s'alimentent et se détruisent mutuellement, l'incompatibilité des rapports sociaux associés à chacun d'eux et leur coexistence apparaissent à travers une étude fondée sur l'observation de six communautés villageoises, la collecte des traditions d'origine de plus de cent familles et le dépouillement des archives locales de ta colonisation. L'ouvrage comprend huit cartes hors-texte au format 48 x 48 cm. "La publication de l'Anthropologie économique des Gouro de Meillassoux pourrait bien, marquer un tournant dans l'histoire de l'anthropologie. ... pour la première fois, un chercheur rompu aux concepts et aux méthodes de l'anthropologie traditionnelle applique à une société "primitive" concrète les catégories du matérialisme historique. ... le mérite de Cl. Meillassoux est d'avoir dépassé le stade des projets et des programmes et d'avoir tenté d'éprouver sur le terrain la fécondité de ces principes

Time without becoming by Claude Meillassoux( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To use Alan Badiou's words, "It is no exaggeration to say that Quentin Meillassoux has opened up a new path in the history of philosophy." The present book, Time Without Becoming, is the text of a conference that Meillassoux gave at Middlesex University in London in May 2008. Following his seminal After Finitude, Meillassoux proceeds here to further explore his notion of absolute contingency, which is able to produce and destroy, without a reason, any becoming. In her contribution, Anna Longo challenges this idea by confronting Meillassoux's speculative materialism with emergentism
