Against Everything : Essays by Mark Greif( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past eleven years, Greif has been publishing superb, and in some cases already famous, essays in n+1, the high-profile little magazine that he co-founded. These essays address such key topics in the cultural, political, and intellectual life of our time as the tyranny of exercise, the tyranny of nutrition and food snobbery, the sexualization of childhood (and everything else), the philosophical meaning of Radiohead, the rise and fall of the hipster, the impact of the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the crisis of policing. Four of the selections address, directly and unironically, the meaning of life--what might be the right philosophical stance to adopt toward one's self and the world. Each essay in Against Everything is learned, original, highly entertaining, and, from start to finish, dead serious. They are the work of a young intellectual who, with his peers, is reinventing and reinvigorating what intellectuals can be and say and do. Mark Greif manages to reincarnate and revivify the thought and spirit of the greatest of American dissenters, Henry David Thoreau, for our time and historical situation.--Publisher website
The age of the crisis of man : thought and fiction in America, 1933-1973 by Mark Greif( Book )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a midcentury American cultural episode forgotten today, intellectuals of all schools shared a belief that human nature was under threat. The immediate result was a glut of dense, abstract books on the "nature of man." But the dawning "age of the crisis of man," as Mark Greif calls it, was far more than a historical curiosity. In this ambitious intellectual and literary history, Greif recovers this lost line of thought to show how it influenced society, politics, and culture before, during, and long after World War II. During the 1930s and 1940s, fears of the barbarization of humanity energized New York intellectuals, Chicago protoconservatives, European Jewish émigrés, and native-born bohemians to seek "re-enlightenment," a new philosophical account of human nature and history. After the war this effort diffused, leading to a rebirth of modern human rights and a new power for the literary arts. Critics' predictions of a "death of the novel" challenged writers to invest bloodless questions of human nature with flesh and detail. Hemingway, Faulkner, and Richard Wright wrote flawed novels of abstract man. Succeeding them, Ralph Ellison, Saul Bellow, Flannery O'Connor, and Thomas Pynchon constituted a new guard who tested philosophical questions against social realities--race, religious faith, and the rise of technology--that kept difference and diversity alive. By the 1960s, the idea of "universal man" gave way to moral antihumanism, as new sensibilities and social movements transformed what had come before. Greif's reframing of a foundational debate takes us beyond old antagonisms into a new future, and gives a prehistory to the fractures of our own era."--Publisher's description
What was the hipster? : a sociological investigation( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in German and English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ende der neunziger Jahre tauchte plötzlich eine neue soziale Spezies in US-Großstädten auf: die Hipster. Die Erben der Beatniks oder Hippies trugen zu enge Jeans, Baseballmützen, Schnäuzer und hatten Dosenbier oder einen Laptop dabei. Begleitet wurde ihr Auftreten von der Musik der Strokes oder von Belle and Sebastian, 2001 setzte Wes Anderson ihnen in The Royal Tenenbaums ein filmisches Denkmal. Spätestens als 2004 die erste deutsche Filiale von American Apparel eröffnete, hatten die Hipster bzw. die eng mit ihnen verwandten digitalen Bohèmes den Sprung über den Atlantik geschafft. Die New Yorker Zeitschrift n+1 widmete den Hipstern 2009 eine Tagung an der New School: Was sind eigentlich Hipster? Und wofür sind sie ein Symptom? Für eine Generation, die Geld verdienen und doch nicht erwachsen werden will? Ein durch und durch ironisches Zeitalter? Den postindustriellen Konsumkapitalismus? Der Band sorgte nicht nur in den USA für großes Aufsehen, das Buch wird mittlerweile in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt. In dieser Ausgabe werfen Jens-Christian Rabe (Süddeutsche Zeitung), Tobias Rapp (Der Spiegel) und Thomas Meinecke zusätzlich einen deutschen Blick auf dieses transatlantische Phänomen
