A society adrift : interviews and debates, 1974-1997 by Cornelius Castoriadis( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This posthumous collection of interviews and occasional papers given by Castoriadis between 1974 and 1997 is a lively, direct introduction to the thinking of a writer who never abandoned his radically critical stance. It provides a clear, handy resume of his political ideas, in advance of their times and profoundly relevant to today's world." "For this political thinker and longtime militant (co-founder with Claude Lefort of the revolutionary group "Socialisme au Barbarie"), economist, psychoanalyst, and philosopher, two endless interrogationshow to understand the world and life in society - were intertwined with his own life and combats." "Castoriadis constantly returns to the question of democracy as the never-finished, deliberate creation by the people of societal institutions, analyzing its past and its future in the Western world. He scathingly criticizes "representative" democracy and develops a conception of direct democracy extending to all spheres of social life."--Jacket

Fenêtre sur le chaos by Cornelius Castoriadis( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bien avant que ne s'ouvre le débat sur la "crise de l'art contemporain", Castoriadis avait posé avec une acuité particulière la question du sens et de l'avenir de la création artistique. Son diagnostic était sombre. L'effondrement de cette création au présent obère également le passé et l'avenir. Le passé, car "là où il n'y a pas de présent, il n'y a pas davantage de passé"; l'avenir, car "mémoire vivante du passé et projet d'un avenir valorisé disparaissent ensemble". Rien, dans ce dernier quart de siècle, n'est malheureusement venu infirmer ce diagnostic. Plusieurs textes inclus dans ce recueil (sur la musique, sur la fonction de la critique, sur l'art comme "fenêtre sur le chaos") prolongent les réflexions de l'auteur sur les rapports entre la création culturelle, la société démocratique et l'énigme de l'œuvre d'art
