Echolalias : on the forgetting of language by Daniel Heller-Roazen( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Echolalias, Daniel Heller-Roazen reflects on the many forms of linguistic forgetfulness. In twenty-one concise chapters, he moves between classical, medieval, and modern culture, exploring the interrelations of speech, writing, memory, and oblivion. Whether the subject is medieval literature or modern fiction, classical Arabic poetry or the birth of French language, structuralist linguistics or Freud's writings on aphasia, Heller-Roazen considers with precision and insight the forms, effects, and ultimate consequences of the persistence and disappearance of language. In speech, he argues, destruction and construction often prove inseparable. Among speaking communities, the vanishing of one language can mark the emergence of another, and among individuals, the experience of the passing of speech can lie at the origin of literary, philosophical, and artistic creation."--Jacket
Potentialities : collected essays in philosophy by Giorgio Agamben( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, which collects fifteen essays in philosophy written over a period of more than twenty years, constitutes the largest and most significant collection of writings by the Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben to be published in any language." "The volume opens with an introduction in which the editor situates Agamben's work with respect to both the history of philosophy and contemporary European thought. The essays that follow articulate a series of theoretical confrontations with privileged figures in the history of philosophy, politics, and criticism, from Plato to Spinoza, Aristotle to Deleuze, Carl Schmitt to Benjamin, Hegel to Aby Warburg, and Heidegger to Derrida."--Jacket

The enemy of all : piracy and the law of nations by Daniel Heller-Roazen( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pirate is the original enemy of humankind. As Cicero famously remarked, there are certain enemies with whom one may negotiate and with whom, circumstances permitting, one may establish a truce. But there is also an enemy with whom treaties are in vain and war remains incessant. This is the pirate, considered by ancient jurists to be "the enemy of all." In this book, Daniel Heller-Roazen reconstructs the shifting place of the pirate in legal and political thought from the ancient to the medieval, modern, and contemporary periods, presenting the philosophical genealogy of a remarkable antagonist. Today, Heller-Roazen argues, the pirate furnishes the key to the contemporary paradigm of the universal foe. This is a legal and political person of exception, neither criminal nor enemy, who inhabits an extra-territorial region. Against such a foe, states may wage extraordinary battles, policing politics and justifying military measures in the name of welfare and security
The Arabian Nights = Alf laylah wa-laylah by Husain Haddawy( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-eight tales from The Arabian Nights translated by Husain Haddawy on the basis of the oldest existing Arabic manuscript. Few works of literature are as familiar and beloved as The Arabian Nights, yet few remain also as unknown. In English, The Arabian Nights is a literary work of relatively recent date - the first versions of the tales appeared in English barely two hundred years ago. The tales are accompanied by a preface, a note on the text, and explanatory annotations

Dark tongues : the art of Rogues and Riddlers by Daniel Heller-Roazen( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dark Tongues constitutes a sustained exploration of a perplexing fact that has never received the attention it deserves. Wherever human beings share a language, they also strive to make from it something new: a cryptic idiom, built from the grammar that they know, which will allow them to communicate in secrecy. Such hidden languages come in many shapes. They may be playful or serious, children's games or adults' work. They may be as impenetrable as foreign tongues, or slightly different from the idioms from which they spring, or barely perceptible, their existence being the subject of uncertain, even unlikely, suppositions. The first recorded jargons date to the time of the Renaissance, when writers across Europe noted that obscure languages had suddenly come into use. A varied cast of characters -- lawyers, grammarians, and theologians -- denounced these new forms of speech, arguing that they were tools of crime, plotted in tongues that honest people could not understand. Before the emergence of these modern jargons, however, the artificial twisting of languages served a different purpose. In epochs and regions as diverse as archaic Greece and Rome and medieval Provence and Scandinavia, singers and scribes also invented opaque varieties of speech. They did so not to defraud, but to reveal and record a divine thing: the language of the gods, which poets and priests alone were said to master. Dark Tongues moves among these various artificial and hermetic tongues. From criminal jargons to sacred idioms, from Saussure's work on anagrams to Jakobson's theory of subliminal patterns in poetry, from the arcane arts of the Druids and Biblical copyists to the secret procedure that Tristan Tzara, founder of Dada, believed he had uncovered in Villon's songs and ballads, Dark Tongues explores the common crafts of rogues and riddlers, which play sound and sense against each other

Secrets of al-Jāḥiẓ = by Daniel Heller-Roazen( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El filósofo y escritor Daniel Heller-Roazen se pregunta "si el lenguaje puede guardar algo propio oculto en todo lo que se ha dicho". Para responder a tal cuestión se sumerge en el misterio del discurso y del texto en sí mismo, centrándose en el escritor al-Jāhiẓ, del siglo IX, y en su concepto de guardar un secreto y sujetar la lengua. Al-Jāhiẓ sostiene que necesitamos dos herramientas para guardar un secreto: primera, no hablar en el momento equivocado; segunda, no divulgarlo. Un secreto afecta a los órganos del cuerpo y a las personas físicas, especialmente a la lengua y al pecho. Los métodos de al-Jāhiẓ revelan la vida de un secreto: desde que traspasa el cuerpo y se adivina en cualquier gesto o movimiento, en cualquier mirada de su poseedor, hasta que la lengua lo deja escapar y llega a otro oído, momento en que deja de ser secreto y se convierte en algo diferente: escándalo público, vergüenza personal o, en el mejor de los casos, en otra forma de discurso, en información
