Brings two of the most important religious thinkers into conversation
The step back ethics and politics after deconstruction by David Wood ( )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This original contribution to the ethical and political significance of philosophy addresses a number of major themes-identity, violence, the erotic, freedom, responsibility, religious belief, globalization-and critically engages with the work of Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Derrida, and Levinas. It promotes a unique blend of deconstructive critique and a certain English skepticism, leading to the affirmation of a negative capability-a patience and vigilance in the face of both human folly and philosophy's own homegrown pathologies. The author argues for the extension of our sense of openness and responsibility to animal life, and indeed life in general, and not just to the human. Book jacket

Derrida : a critical reader ( Book )
15 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jacques Derrida's prolific output has been the delight (and sometimes the despair) of philosophers and literary theorists for over twenty years. His influence on the way we read theoretical texts continues to be profound. No serious contemporary thinker can fail to respond to 'deconstruction', even if many fail to come to terms with it, and there have been a number of monographs devoted to his work, not least by the contributors to this volume. Each author combines an intimate knowledge of Derrida's texts with an 'independent' philosophical stance. Each was asked -- in the most positive sense -- to take just such a critical approach. And the variety of response to this request -- many contributors problematize the very idea of a critical approach -- testifies to the traumatic effect Derrida has had on traditional philosophical certainties. This volume includes substantive papers by Jean-Luc Nancy, Michel Haar, John Llewelyn, Geoffrey Bennington, John Sallis, Robert Bernasconi, Christopher Norris, Irene Harvey, Manfred Frank, Richard Rorty and by Jacques Derrida himself -- introduced by David Wood. Its remit is neither to praise nor to bury Derrida, but to draw out and confirm the openings he gives to philosophy, and whatever thinking may succeed it. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
Exceedingly Nietzsche : aspects of contemporary Nietzsche-interpretation by David Farrell Krell ( Book )
15 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and Multiple languages and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The deconstruction of time by David Wood ( Book )
16 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Deconstruction of Time is the first book to examine what has become the fundamental, even defining, project in Continental philosophy: double rethinking. Begun by Edmund Husserl, this area of inquiry in part seeks to rethink time in terms of our experience of it; a second aspect, begun by Martin Heidegger, is an attempt to rethink ourselves (and philosophy itself) in terms of the results of that initial rethinking."--BOOK JACKET
Derrida and différance ( Book )
10 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Society of the Friends of Difference would have to include Heraclitus, Nietzsche, Saussure, Freud, Adorno, Heidegger, Levinas, Deleuze, and Lyotard among its most prominent members. It is tempting to think of these figures as constituting a distinct philosophical tradition, one which would emphasize dissonance, separation, disparity, plurality, distinction, change, over against those who would continue the search for unity, identity, presence, permanence, foundations, structures, and essences
Thinking after Heidegger by David Wood ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Of Derrida, Heidegger, and spirit ( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jacques Derrida's De l'espirit: Heidegger et la question is one of his most interesting and accessible later works. In it, Derrida attempts to come to terms with Heidegger's Nazi connections by way of an extended reflection on Heidegger's use of the term "Geist." In Of Derrida, Heidegger, and Spirit, David Wood presents a variety of powerful and distinctive responses to Derrida's book
Truth : engagements across philosophical traditions by José Medina ( Book )
16 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Setting the stage with selections from Nietzsche and James, this reader on truth puts in conversation some of the main philosophical figures from the twentieth century in the analytic, continental, and pragmatist traditions. The volume's central focus is the value or normativity of truth, explored by constructing dialogues between different schools of thought. Topics include the normative relation between truth and subjectivity, consensus, art, testimony, power, and critique."--BOOK JACKET

Time after time by David Wood ( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Time After Time, David Wood accepts, without pessimism, the broad postmodern idea of the end of time. Wood exposes the rich, stratified, and non-linear textures of temporal complexity that characterize our world. Time includes breakdowns, repetitions, memories, and narratives that confuse a clear and open understanding of what it means to occupy time and space. In these thoughtful and powerful essays, Wood engages Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida to demonstrate how repetition can preserve sameness and how creativity can interrupt time. Wood's original thinking about time charts a course through the breakdown in our trust in history and progress and poses a daring and productive way of doing phenomenology and deconstruction
Essays on philosophy in Australia by Jan T. J Srzednicki ( Book )
4 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Philosophy flourished in Australia after the war. There was spectacular growth in both the number of departments and the number of philosophers. On top of this philosophy spread beyond the philosophy departments. Serious studies, and interest in philosophy is now common in faculties as diverse as law, science and education. Neither is this development merely quantitative, the Australian researcher has come of age and contributes widely to international debates. At least one movement originated in Australia. This makes the study of philosophy in Australia timely, evidenced by the number of articles concerned with this area that begin to appear in international journals. In Australia itself there is growing interest in the history of the country's philosophical development. There are discussions in conferences and meetings: the matter is now the subject of courses
Upstream petroleum fiscal and valuation modeling in Excel : a worked examples approach by Ken Kasriel ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Is a book no deal team should be without. It is a must for those involved in upstream oil and gas transactions, planning, budgeting, investment appraisal and portfolio management. Its step'by'step approach cuts through complexity, making it comprehensive and understandable by a wide range of users with a wide range of abilities. It can be used as a textbook, an introductory primer or as a handbook that you can dip in and out of or read cover to cover."/i /'bMichael Lynch'Bell/b, Senior Advisor, Oil & Gas, Ernst & Young LLP; ex-officio Chairman, UN Expert Group on Resource Classification/ In the upstream petroleum industry, it is the value of post'tax cashflows which matters most to companies, governments, investors, lenders, analysts, and advisors. Calculating these cashflows and understanding their "behavior," however, is challenging, as the industry's specialized fiscal systems can be complex, jargon'laden, and sometimes seem to be a "world of their own"./ iUpstream Petroleum Fiscal and Valuation Modeling in Excel: A Worked Examples Approach/i demystifies fiscal analysis which, unlike disciplines such as Earth sciences and engineering, can be learned from a book. Written in plain English for laymen and for experienced practitioners alike, it is a reader'friendly, clear, practical, step'by'step hands'on guide for both reference and self'paced study./ The book does not catalogue the 100+ different petroleum fiscal regimes in use at the time of writing. Rather, drawing on the authors' combined 48 years' experience, it takes a more timeless, generic treatment, by covering the most common variants of royalties, taxation, production sharing arrangements, bonuses and abandonment funding, through a dual approach: first, showing how to model them in Excel, and then providing interactive exercises to prompt (and answer) questions that analyze impacts on cashflows./ In addition to the main text, the book consists of over 120 Excel files (ranging from modular examples to full models) in Excel 2007 and 2003 formats; over 400 pages of supplementary PDF files; VBA features to enhance model functionality; and an introduction to risk modeling with exercises for the included trial version of Oracle's Crystal Ball software. It offers both a wealth of content and models equal to or surpassing what is available from fiscal modeling courses costing several times more; and greater insights into underlying calculations than commercially available "black box" fiscal software./ New US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules planned for 2013 will force petroleum companies to disclose more fiscal information on an individual country basis. This will make it more important than ever for analysts to understand how to model oil and gas terms and the potential impacts of the disclosed government payments on future oil and gas company profitability. / // Due to the heavy use of graphics and cross references used in this particular text, some readers might find that the printed book offers a more optimal reading experience than certain e-formats particularly with the Kindle eMobi format. / /iWhen purchasing this book for an e-reader, please email proof of purchase and delivery address to: a href="" Wiley will send youraccompanying CD-ROMto you seperately. /i & gt
