The philosophy of Marx by Étienne Balibar( Book )

"The only guide to Marx that the student and scholar will need. Providing a lucid and accessible introduction to Marx, complete with pedagogical boxes, a chronology and guides to further reading, Etienne Balibar makes the most difficult areas of his philosophy easy to understand. One of the most influential French philosophers to have emerged from the 1960s, Balibar brings a lifetime of study and expertise to create a brilliantly concise portrait of Marx that will initiate the student and intrigue the scholar. He examines all the key areas of Marx's writings, including his early works, The Communist Manifesto, The German Ideology and Capital, explaining their wider historical and theoretical context. Making clear such concepts as class struggle, ideology, humanism, progress, determinism, commodity fetishism and the state, Balibar includes brief yet incisive biographical studies of key Marxists such as Althusser, Gramsci, Engels and Lenin. The Philosophy of Marx will become the standard guide to Marx's thought."--Publisher's description
Race, nation, class : ambiguous identities by Étienne Balibar( Book )

47 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A signal work in contemporary race theory and the study of nationalism, Race, Nation, Class brings the conditions of presentday racism into focus. Situating racial and ethnic relations within the social structures maintained by nationalist ideologies, class interests, and veiled conflicts, Balibar and Wallerstein illustrate racism's particularity as both symptom and tool in capitalism's latest stage of development. Packed with clear-sighted historical analysis and productive debates, this book marks a major shift in Western Marxism towards a deeper understanding of social strife

19 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International in scope and featuring a diverse group of contributors, The Borders of Justice investigates the complexities of transitional justice that emerge from its "social embeddedness." This original and provocative collection of essays, which stem from a collective research program on social justice undertaken by the Calcutta Research Group, confronts the concept and practices of justice. The editors and contributors question the relationship between geography, methodology, and justice-how and why justice is meted out differently in different places. Expanding on
Violence and civility : on the limits of political philosophy by Étienne Balibar( )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Violence and Civility', Étienne Balibar boldly confronts the insidious causes of violence, racism, nationalism, and ethnic cleansing worldwide, as well as mass poverty and dispossession. Through a novel synthesis of theory and empirical studies of contemporary violence, the acclaimed thinker pushes past the limits of political philosophy to reconceive war, revolution, sovereignty, and class. Through the pathbreaking thought of Derrida, Balibar builds a topography of cruelty converted into extremism by ideology, juxtaposing its subjective forms (identity delusions, the desire for extermination, and the pursuit of vengeance) and its objective manifestations (capitalist exploitation and an institutional disregard for life). Engaging with Marx, Hegel, Hobbes, Clausewitz, Schmitt, and Luxemburg, Balibar introduces a new, productive understanding of politics as antiviolence and a fresh approach to achieving and sustaining civility. Rooted in the principles of transformation and empowerment, this theory brings hope to a world increasingly divided even as it draws closer together.--

Spinoza and politics by Étienne Balibar( Book )

58 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spinoza y la política: ¡qué paradoja, a primera vista, en esta simple formulación! Si la política es del orden de la historia, he aquí un filósofo en el cual, todo su sistema se presenta como el desarrollo de la idea de que conocer es conocer a Dios, y que Dios es la Naturaleza misma. Si la política es del orden de la pasión, he aquí un filósofo que se propone conocer (intelligere) los deseos y las acciones de los hombres "a la manera de los Geómetras ... como si fuera cuestión de curvas, superficies y volúmenes". Si la política es la toma de partido en la actualidad, he aquí un filósofo para quien, justamente, la sabiduría y el soberano bien consisten en concebir todas las cosas singulares "desde el punto de vista de la eternidad". ¿Qué nos podría decir que no sea pura especulación? Sin embargo, él mismo no vio ninguna contradicción, muy por el contrario, en la combinación de la inteligencia y la convicción, del concepto y la práctica. Al comenzar su Tratado Político, y retomando las mismas expresiones, se propone alcanzar "las conclusiones que concuerdan mejor con la práctica", dice, "deduciéndolas de la propia condición de la naturaleza humana ... con la misma libertad de espíritu a la cual los matemáticos nos tienen acostumbrados", a fin de conocer las acciones humanas por sus causas necesarias, "en lugar de burlarse de ellas, deplorarlas y maldecirlas". Y la primera gran obra de su madurez, el Tratado Teológico-Político, había sido un libro de combate, un manifiesto filosófico y político en el cual no sería difícil encontrar algunos detalles irónicos o de preocupación, si no de condena."--Contratapa

"As one of Louis Althusser's most brilliant students in the 1960s, Etienne Balibar contributed to the theoretical collective masterpiece of Reading Capital. Since then he has established himself amongst the most subtle philosophical and political thinkers in France. In Politics and the Other Scene Balibar deepens and extends the work he first developed with Immanuel Wallerstein in Race, Nation, Class. Exploring the theme of universalism and difference, he addresses questions such as "European racism, " the notion of the border, whether a European citizenship is possible or desirable, violence and politics, identity and emancipation"--provided by publisher
Lire le Capital by Louis Althusser( Book )

67 editions published between 1965 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zusammen mit der Sammlung von Louis Althussers philosophischen Interventionen unter dem Titel Für Marx markierte dieses Buch einen radikalen Neubeginn der Debatte über den Marxismus und ihre Streitpunkte: Worin liegt eigentlich der wissenschaftliche Durchbruch, den Marx in seiner "Kritik der politischen Ökonomie" auf dem Felde der Wissenschaften von Geschichte und Gesellschaft vollzogen hat? Und: In welchem Sinne liefert dieser wissenschaftliche Durchbruch unverzichtbare Grundlagen für eine Politik der Überwindung der Herrschaft der kapitalistischen Produktionsweisen in unseren gegenwärtigen Gesellschaften? Sowie schließlich: Welchen Beitrag kann ein kritisches Philosophieren dazu leisten, dass sich wirklich wissenschaftliche Forschung und revolutionäre Politik als solche entwickeln und gegen alle Störungen durch herrschende Ideologien behaupten können? - Um eben diese Fragen zu bearbeiten und neu zu beantworten, ist heute immer noch das Kapital zu lesen - und dieses Buch hilft heute erst recht dabei, die Kapital-Lektüre auf diese Fragen zu beziehen.

Citizen subject : foundations for philosophical anthropology by Étienne Balibar( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book constitutes the summation of Étienne Balibar's career-long project to think the necessary and necessarily antagonistic relation between the categories of citizen and subject. In this magnum opus, the question of modernity is framed anew with special attention to the self-enunciation of the subject (in Descartes, Locke, Rousseau, and Derrida), the constitution of the community as "we" (in Hegel, Marx, and Tolstoy), and the aporia of the judgment of self and others (in Foucualt, Freud, Kelsen, and Blanchot). After the "humanist controversy" that preoccupied twentieth-century philosophy, Citizen Subject proposes foundations for philosophical anthropology today, in terms of two contrary movements: the becoming-citizen of the subject and the becoming-subject of the citizen. The citizen-subject who is constituted in the claim to a "right to have rights" (Arendt) cannot exist without an underside that contests and defies it. He--or she, because Balibar is concerned throughout this volume with questions of sexual difference--figures not only the social relation but also the discontent or the uneasiness at the heart of this relation. The human can be instituted only if it betrays itself by upholding "anthropological differences" that impose normality and identity as conditions of belonging to the community. he violence of "civil" bourgeois universality, Balibar argues, is greater (and less legitimate, therefore less stable) than that of theological or cosmological universality. Right is thus founded on insubordination, and emancipation derives its force from otherness. Ultimately, Citizen Subject offers a revolutionary rewriting of the dialectic of universality and differences in the bourgeois epoch, revealing in the relationship between the common and the universal a political gap at the heart of the universal itself.--from book description,
Equaliberty : political essays by Étienne Balibar( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in French in 2010, Equaliberty brings together essays by Étienne Balibar, one of the preeminent political theorists of our time. The book is organized around equaliberty, a term coined by Balibar to connote the tension between the two ideals of modern democracy: equality (social rights and political representation) and liberty (the freedom citizens have to contest the social contract). He finds the tension between these different kinds of rights to be ingrained in the constitution of the modern nation-state and the contemporary welfare state. At the same time, he seeks to keep rights discourse open, eschewing natural entitlements in favor of a deterritorialized citizenship that could be expanded and invented anew in the age of globalization. Deeply engaged with other thinkers, including Arendt, Rancière, and Laclau, he posits a theory of the polity based on social relations. In Equaliberty Balibar brings both the continental and analytic philosophical traditions to bear on the conflicted relations between humanity and citizenship --
Secularism and cosmopolitanism : critical hypotheses on religion and politics by Étienne Balibar( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the relationship between cosmopolitanism and secularism--the worldwide and the worldly? While cosmopolitan politics may seem inherently secular, existing forms of secularism risk undermining the universality of cosmopolitanism because they privilege the European tradition over all others and transform particular historical norms into enunciations of truth, valid for all cultures and all epochs. In this book, the noted philosopher Étienne Balibar explores the tensions lurking at this troubled nexus in order to advance a truly democratic and emancipatory cosmopolitanism, which requires a secularization of secularism itself. Balibar argues for the idea of the universal against its particular dominant institutions. He questions the assumptions that underlie popular ideas of secularism and religion and outlines the importance of a new critique for the contemporary world. Balibar holds that conflicts between religious and secular discourses need to be reframed from a point of view that takes into account the cultural hybridization, migration and mobility, and transformation of borders that have reshaped the postcolonial age. Among the topics discussed are the uses and misuses of the category of religion and the religious, the paradoxical genealogy of monotheism, French laïcité's identitarian turn, and the implications of the responses to the Charlie Hebdo attacks for an extended definition of free speech. Going beyond circumscribed notions of religion and the public sphere, Secularism and Cosmopolitanism is a profound rethinking of identity and difference that seeks to make room for a renewed political imagination

Identity and difference : John Locke and the invention of consciousness by Étienne Balibar( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Locke's foundational place in the history of British empiricism and liberal political thought is well established. So, in what sense can Locke be considered a modern European philosopher' Identity and Difference argues for reassessing this canonical figure. Closely examining the "treatise on identity" added to the second edition of An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, Etienne Balibar demonstrates Locke's role in the formation of two concepts central to the metaphysics of the subject'consciousness and the self'and the complex philosophical, legal, moral and political nature of his terms. With an accompanying essay by Stella Sandford, situating Balibar's reading of Locke in the history of the reception of the Essay and within Balibar's other writings on "the subject," Identity and Difference rethinks a crucial moment in the history of Western philosophy
