Deep time of the media : toward an archaeology of hearing and seeing by technical means by Siegfried Zielinski( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and German and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deep Time of the Media takes us on an archaeological quest into the hidden layers of media development - dynamic moments of intense activity in media design and construction that have been largely ignored in the historical-media archaeological record. Siegfried Zielinski argues that the history of the media does not proceed predictably from primitive tools to complex machinery. In Deep Time of the Media, he illuminates turning points of media history - fractures in the predictable - that help us see the new in the old."--Jacket
Audiovisions : cinema and television as entr'actes in history by Siegfried Zielinski( Book )

31 editions published between 1989 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The production, distribution, and perception of moving images are undergoing a radical transformation. Ever-faster computers, digital technology, and microelectronic are joining forces to produce advanced audiovision -the media vanishing point of the 20th century. Very little will remain unchanged. The classic institutions for the mediation of film - cinema and television - are revealed to be no more than interludes in the broader history of the audiovisual media. This book interprets these changes not simply as a cultural loss but also as a challenge: the new audiovisions have to be confronted squarely to make strategic intervention possible. Audiovisions provides a historical underpinning for this active approach. Spanning 100 years, from the end of the 19th to the end of the 20th century, it reconstructs the complex genesis of cinema and television as historically relative - and thus finite - cultural forms, focussing on the dynamics and tension in the interaction between the apparatus and its uses. The book is also a plea for 'staying power' in studies of cultural technology and technological culture of film. Essayistic in style, it dispenses with complicated cross references and, instead, is structured around distinct historical phases. Montages of images and text provide supplemental information, contrast, and comment
[... after the media] : news from the slow-fading twentieth century by Siegfried Zielinski( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On doubt by Vilém Flusser( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In On Doubt, Vilém Flusser refines Martin Heidegger's famous declaration that "language is the dwelling of Being." For Flusser, "the word is the dwelling of being," because in fact, in the beginning, there was the word. On Doubt is a treatise on the human intellect, its relation to language, and the reality-forming discourses that subsequently emerge. For Flusser, the faith that the modern age places in Cartesian doubt plays a role similar to the one that faith in God played in previous eras-a faith that needs to be challenged. Descartes doubts the world through his proposition cogito ergo sum
The natural mind: a new way of looking at drugs and the higher consciousness by Andrew Weil( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV><P><EM>Natural:Mind</EM>, published for the first time in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1979, investigates the paradoxical connection between the concepts of nature and culture through a lively para-phenomenological analysis of natural and cultural phenomena. Always applying his fluid and imagistic Husserlian style of phenomenology, Vilém Flusser explores different perspectives and relations of items from everyday life.</P></DIV>
Post-history by Vilém Flusser( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<DIV><P><BR>In <I>Post-History</I>, Vilém Flusser asks the essential question: Is there any room left for freedom in a programmed world? Written as a series of lectures to be delivered at universities in Brazil, Israel, and France, this first English translation of <I>Post-History</I> brings to an anglophone readership Flusser's first critique of <I>apparatus</I> as the aesthetic, ethical, and epistemological model of present times. <BR></P></DIV>

Variantology by Siegfried Zielinski( Book )

29 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our endeavour is not to explain the history of the media as a consecutive retrospective, but to move from reflections about the deep time history of arts and sciences to speculations that reach into the present. The contributors to the third volume in the Variantology Series expand our ideas of the interplay between arts, technology, and science in at least three important ways: 1. Themes. Fireworks as a time-based praxis of performance, magnetised chess automata, paper-cuts, thermometers, radical interventions in the natural landscape by humans, and the com pass are revealed as areas where discoveries can be made that lead to much broader and richer concepts of what art and media are. 2. Regions. As we move with the authors from Europe to the Far East and back again it becomes absolutely clear that the history of the media cannot be written with only the former industrial metropolises of the world in our sights, beginning and ending there. 3. Time. The evolution of the Chinese culture of science and technology takes us into dimensions that add unsuspected energies and historical possibilities to the concept of deep time. Brecht's verdict from the 1920s that Chinese civilisation has already forgotten about innovations that the West proudly celebrates as innovations of the Modern Age, is given new meaning."--Publisher's description

The history of the devil by Vilém Flusser( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1939, a young Vilém Flusser faced the Nazi invasion of his hometown of Prague. He escaped with his wife to Brazil, taking with him only two books: a small Jewish prayer book and Goethe's Faust. Twenty-six years later, in 1965, Flusser would publish The History of the Devil, and it is the essence of those two books that haunts his own. From that time his life as a philosopher was born. While Flusser would later garner attention in Europe and elsewhere as a thinker of media culture, The History of the Devil is considered by many to be his first significant work, containing nascent forms of t
