Disclosing new worlds entrepreneurship, democratic action, and the cultivation of solidarity by Charles Spinosa ( )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 2,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
According to the authors, there are two major perils to history-making in Western society. One is the Cartesian tradition, which celebrates stepping back from everyday life to understand the world on the basis of rational deliberation. Against this, the authors advocate an intense involvement in the anomalies of everyday life as a means to understand the world and the changes it needs. The second is the neo-Nietzschean tendency to embrace radical, individual change for its own sake. Now that anyone can log on to the Internet to try on a new personality, the authors argue, it becomes increasingly urgent that we retrieve our history-making skills, both in our everyday lives and in our public roles

Michel Foucault, beyond structuralism and hermeneutics by Hubert L Dreyfus ( Book )
57 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book, which Foucault himself has judged accurate, is the first to provide a sustained, coherent analysis of Foucault's work as a whole. To demonstrate the sense in which Foucault's work is beyond structuralism and hermeneutics, the authors unfold a careful, analytical exposition of his oeuvre. They argue that during the of Foucault's work became a sustained and largely successful effort to develop a new method -- "interpretative analytics" -- capable of explaining both the logic of structuralism's claim to be an objective science and the apparent validity of the hermeneutical counterclaim that the human sciences can proceed only by understanding the deepest meaning of the subject and his tradition. -- from http://www.barnesandnoble.com (August 19, 2011)

Ways of the hand a rewritten account by David Sudnow ( )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Looking back after more than twenty years, Sudnow was struck by the extent to which he had allowed his academic background to shape the book's language. He realized that he could now do a much better job of describing his experiences in a way that would not require facility with formal social science and philosophical discourse. The result is a revised version of the book that carries the same intellectual energy as the original but is accessible to a much wider audience."--BOOK JACKET

Mind over machine : the power of human intuition and expertise in the era of the computer by Hubert L Dreyfus ( Book )
36 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Human intuition and perception are basic and essential phenomena of consciousness. As such, they will never be replicated by computers. This is the challenging notion of Hubert Dreyfus, Ph.D., archcritic of the artificial intelligence establishment. It's important to emphasize that he doesn't believe that AI is fundamentally impossible, only that the current research program is fatally flawed. Instead, he argues that to get a device (or devices) with human-like intelligence would require them to have a human-like being in the world, which would require them to have bodies more or less like ours, and social acculturation (i.e. a society) more or less like ours. This helps to explain the practical problems in implementing artificial intelligence algorithms
On the internet by Hubert L Dreyfus ( Book )
43 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On the Internet is a discussion of the promises and dangers of the Internet. Drawing on a diverse array of thinkers from Plato to Kierkegaard, On the Internet brings philosophical analysis to such questions as whether the Internet can solve the problems of mass education and bring humanity to a new level of community. Dreyfus shows the source of the attraction of being a ubiquitous net surfer in Plato's disdain for the body, and how Kierkegaard's criticism of the press and public opinion for its lack of commitment anticipate the dangers of the risk-free interactions made possible by the anonymity of the Web. Drawing on recent studies of the isolation experienced by many Internet users, Dreyfus shows how the Internet deprives users of essential embodied human capacities such as trust and involvement in shared local concerns. With reference to examples from his own teaching experience, the author also shows that 'interactive' education leaves out the shared moods and risks that make possible the acquisition of expertise."--BOOK JACKET
