Language and symbolic power by Pierre Bourdieu( Book )
44 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume brings together Bourdieu's highly original writings on language and on the relations among language, power, and politics. Bourdieu develops a forceful critique of traditional approaches to language, including the linguistic theories of Saussure and Chomsky and the theory of speech-acts elaborated by Austin and others. He argues that language should he viewed not only as a means of communication but also as a medium of power through which individuals pursue their own interests and display their practical competence."--
From text to action essays in hermeneutics, II by Paul Ricœur( )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book will be useful to those coming to the field of hermeneutics for the first time, as well as those already familiar with Ricoeur's work. Paul Ricoeur (1913-2005) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Chicago and the University of Paris X, Nanterre, and a leading figure in twentieth-century French philosophy. ""From Text to Action"" provides an invaluable companion to Ricoeur's classic text, ""The Conflict of Interpretations"". Here he further develops his general theory of interpretation in relation to his own philosophical background and influences: Hegel, Husserl, Gadamer a
Hermeneutics and the human sciences : essays on language, action, and interpretation by Paul Ricœur( Book )
35 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a collection in translation of essays by Paul Ricoeur which presents a comprehensive view of his philosophical hermeneutics, its relation to the views of his predecessors in the tradition and its consequences for the social sciences. The volume has three parts. The studies in the first part examine the history of hermeneutics, its central themes and the outstanding issues it has to confront. In Part II, Ricoeur's own current, constructive position is developed. A concept of the text is formulated as the implications of the theory are pursued into the domains of sociology, psychoanalysis and history. Many of the essays appear here in English for the first time; the editor's introduction brings out their background in Ricoeur's thought and the continuity of his concerns. The volume will be of great importance for those interested in hermeneutics and Ricoeur's contribution to it, and will demonstrate how much his approach offers to a number of disciplines."--Book cover

Merchants of culture : the publishing business in the twenty-first century by John B Thompson( Book )
22 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"These are turbulent times in the world of book publishing. For nearly five centuries the methods and practices of book publishing remained largely unchanged, but at the dawn of the twenty-first century the industry finds itself faced with perhaps the greatest challenges since Gutenberg. A combination of economic pressures and technological change is forcing publishers to alter their practices and think hard about the future of books in the digital age." "In this book £ the first major study of trade publishing for more than thirty years - Thompson situates the current challenges facing the industry in a historical context, analysing the transformation of trade publishing in the United States and Britain since the 1960's. He gives a detailed account of how the world of trade publishing really works, dissecting the roles of publishers, agents and booksellers and showing how their practices are shaped by a field that has a distinctive structure and dynamic. By reconstructing this dynamic he is able to shed fresh light on how bestsellers are made and on why many thousands of books and authors find themselves marooned in an industry increasingly focused on short-term growth and profitability. Against this backcloth Thompson analyses the impact of the digital revolution on book publishing and examines the pressures £ both economic and technological £ that are re-shaping the field of trade publishing today." "The outcome of nearly five years of research, this major new book will establish itself as an exemplary work in the study of contemporary culture and will be essential reading for anyone interested in books and their future."--BOOK JACKET

17 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this major new work, Thompson develops an original account of ideology and relates it to the analysis of culture and mass communication in modern Societies. Thompson offers a concise and critical appraisal of major contributions to the theory of ideology, from Marx and Mannheim, to Horkheimer, Adorno and Habermas. He argues that these thinkers - and social and political theorists more generally - have failed to deal adequately with the nature of mass communication and its role in the modern world. In order to overcome this deficiency, Thompson undertakes a wide-ranging analysis of t
Langage et pouvoir symbolique by Pierre Bourdieu( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in French and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sociologue réputé, l'auteur s'est fait une spécialité de mettre en évidence les rapports de force que la culture s'ingénie à masquer. Après l'éducation, la consommation de l'art et la formation du goût, c'est maintenant le domaine du langage qui attire son attention. Et Pierre Bourdieu, avec une rigueur impeccable, fait réintégrer à la linguistique le champ des luttes sociales. Que parler, ce soit aussi parler de sa situation sociale (ou ses ambitions sociales) était en fait d'une évidence telle que l'on avait tendance à l'oublier. Bourdieu nous le remet en mémoire et de belle façon. [SDM]
